I just started playing and am surprised at the lack of other players. I know this sounds stupid, and I'm a brand new player, but I've been wandering for a while and have come across nobody. Am I doing something wrong?
People? Why are you looking for other people? Frankly as a resource, they are overrated as they often can be very difficult to harvest. And just between you and me, I suspect they were behind this whole Apocalypse thing.
Now bears, that's another thing. You always know where you stand with bears. Of course, right now bears are also hard to find.
