Uncertainty

Erisea
Hi,

I'm a casual UK player, and so far, while I really want to enjoy this game, I've been finding the world very empty. I've run around the world and visited a few player owned settlements, but there never seems to be anyone around, so I'm not really sure at the moment what to do in the game. Auction houses seem to be empty, so I can neither buy, nor work out what price to sell at, and I don't think anyone is buying when I have put some things up.

Am I alone in thinking that the game is very lonely at the moment? Given the design philosophy, it doesn't seem feasible to solo either.

Are there any companies with a strong UK evening playtime? Currently, I have two Destiny Twins, one a wizard and one a gatherer. I'd like the second to be a crafter of some sort, but it seems that specialising in gathering, and refining, and one crafting skill just requires too much XP, so I don't know where to focus.

Hi Erisea

Please visit us in the Emerald Lodge. We are originally formed as an UK group based on Pathfinder Society tabletop gamers. There is a good chance if you go to a convention with RPG that you run into several of us.
We have now build a decently sized independent group. We try hard to take on other gamers - so we have a very active swede, some french players and now also a great US group that joined us.

The best time tends to be 20:00 UK time at the bank in Emerald Lodge. We have a basic economy going and I try hard to help new players and get them set up. We also try to establish a meetup every Sunday to have cross-over between our US gamers and our European gamers.
Yesterday we went out in a mixed group and defeated an escalation. Was a simple one - but we had some pretty new players with us.

The issue with specializing in refining and crafting is that it only makes sense if you have other people supporting you. We are still looking to fill a few gaps. Talk to me what you are interested in and I tell you what we need - and we could set you up.

You can also find more at: http://emeraldlodge.guildlaunch.com/index.php
Thod/Theodum are the OOC/IC leaders of the Emerald Lodge - a neutral settlement in the center of the mal that tries to the first to explore the Emerald Spire - should that part of the game ever become available. We have a strong in game and out of game relationship with the Pathfinder Society.
We welcome both hard core players as well as casual players with or without tabletop experience. We have a strong group in Europe and are slowly expanding into the US. We are predominately PvE as our neutral political stance means that we tend to use PvP only in self-defence. We are not anti-PVP - but expect limited PvP opportunity with us.

Welcome! The map does feel empty as it's the full map but not yet the full population density. Also thhere's no global chat. But we're here!

Emerald Lodge (see the link in my signature) has a strong UK component and a growing US East Coast one as well. Yyou likely missed the UK bunch because some of them met up with us Yanks yesterday afternoon (our time). Check the recruitment subforum - theere are threads for both individual companies and settlements. And yes, adventuring with a group is highly recommended.

Hi, Erisea

Stoneroot Glade has a number of active UK players.
and are on the more peaceful western side of the map, with fewer PKs and PVPers about.

They are allied to Talonguard and Tavernhold in the Highroad Covenant.

I hope you stop by any one of them and join us.

Signed
AZ, Talonguard

Erisea if your after a very strong squad of UK majority and you enjoy your PvP you can check SENSOU out here - https://goblinworks.com/forum/topic/1143/ We have a lot of fun crafting and gathering due to our core ethos of distribution amongst each other.
SENSOU - War is coming!

Thanks for the advice; I'd like to look more in to the Emerald Lodge, but having run there, I've still yet to see another player.

I'm sorry - I know a couple of the UK people are out of town, and I'm US East Coast so our weekday times probably don't councide at all. There should be people around in the early evening (your time) over the weekend, though. I'll try to catch up with you today.

I'll be away tonight, but I should probably be on Sunday evening - it would be good to meet someone, partially because all of my equipment got destroyed on the journey over so I literally can't fight anything now!

Believe me, I understand that! I ran from Ossian's Crossing, and just getting to the settlement tore up my pretty blue robe!

The Groundlings are online on Sunday afternoons (EST), so we'll keep an eye out for you!

I'm in UK Timeline. I've been up at least every third day since game start past midnight but that isn't sustainable. At the moment I've not been online since Tuesday apart of letting accepting a few gamers as I'm away on a gaming con.
Back Sunday. Flitwyck next to me just tried downloading the latest patches using free WiFi.
That is since the last hour.
There are multiple other Emerald Zlodge players here - some not even yet active. So I'm sorry you decided for a bad week.
