Having a forest and lots of wood makes the town a perfect place for the starving carpenter. It's people are mostly friendly and often socialize in one of the many taverns.
It's friendly environment provides an excellent place for a beginner to start off, with lots of experienced players always ready to lend a helping hand to a clueless newbie.
Some players who you can turn to for a little help are:
Boomshine, Stacie, Gruia, Barrens_shaw, Seldomseen. Some of these are mentors, some are not. So if you need help you should first check who the mentors of the town are.
But it is not illegal to ask someone else, so if you happen to stumble across one of these people in a tavern, then don't be afraid to ask them something.
