Helpful Onboarding

Much of the website and other documentation players run into early on has gotten out-of-date, confusing new players, so we’re going to revisit that material and update it.

  • Clear statements on website, patcher and initial game screens about Early Enrollment, Free Trial Mode, the Development Roadmap, and what players should expect while playing and crowdforging the game.
  • Update the web site and patcher to replace obsolete information with updated instructions on how to play the game.
  • Ease new players through some of the things they find most confusing when starting to play, like finding the tutorial quest givers, figuring out what to do when they’ve already done a tutorial stage, understanding how looting works, and preparing for Daily Maintenance.

Very good idea! A nice clean up of old out of date things will definitely help make things understandable for the new folk.

May I suggest that Paizo exert more of a presence during "promotional events" or even in general during the intro period of these new features? A little more Gen Chat visibility, mini blogs (copy/paste is your friend) that explain what you are doing for the game and what you are planning next and upcoming. Communicate where to find these mini blogs. If you have time, organize a few events/contests with prizes, stuff like that.

Maybe even prizes like Paizo products?

We do try to be a little more present at appropriate times, but it's hard to balance between doing so and working on features. We're unlikely to do anything too aggressive on the promotional side right away, but we do know there's a steady flow of interested players who currently turn away because there's no free trial, and will now at least give the game a quick try. We'll try to ramp up our presence a bit to help welcome them, and to get feedback from them on their initial impressions.

Many other games have pop up screens that appear while the game loads that give little bits of lore and some helpful hints (usually taken from the FAQ) about gameplay. That could work here.
