Should I not finish my palisade until I get a claim up? Also, once I build a claim doesn't it go away if I don't have enough authority, so I need a bunch of other people?
The village is born with 125.000 authority, and it takes a while for that to drop, besides is easy to get it up just with the same curios you are feeding your toon now.
You dont need a bunch of people, you can make a village on your own by having a secondary account with alts you make villagers. This way is used to make trading posts by experienced players.
If you play on your own you still need a secondary account to have a key holder and avoid going out with your key, because you can be killed and all your stuff stolen/griefed.
What I would do in your place is yes, build a pali and as soon as you can build a brickwall 25 tiles out of the usable area to try to avoid snipers. Do it on a personal claim 25 tiles larger than your setlement to the 4 directions, to make it difficult for players to use rams and check your walls every day.
You need bear teeth and deer antlers to be able to build a village claim and the deers are far way harder to kill IMHO than the bears, because they autoheal. So it is a better idea to buy this things to be able to make the crossroads for your own use and not needing to use the key holder alt.
