I was recruited into two different villages. Some things I liked from them was.
The first one offered me a group that was willing to work together, share items that others could borrow, teaching how to hunt, and jobs. The other did none of that. The second town was bad, I quit after only a few days because it was shitty. In order to get anything, say food, we had to make somethings are selves, and then give it to them. It was really bad.
