@bluesforbuddha I don’t know, man, I guess I am just not as endgame-driven as you. 🙂 I quite like just futzing around giving myself little goals like “learn to farm mushrooms” or “try not to suck too hard at combat” or “learn a better path marking system.”

I am uncertain quite how long it will take me to get tired of having “gear up and explore that mountain over there” as a mission but suspect it’ll be a while.

And yes, I’m interested in squad play. Unsure whether you should count Mark and me as one “player” or two, though. 🙂
