Newbies I recommend running around the cities with a pressed tab, do not miss quests. Speak with residents! They periodically report interesting things. There are people who are not marked as talking, but they can give quests, or indicate them. So, for example, near Porto-Wallum (not far from the start of the elf) there is a aunt, begging to return her son. By the way, run first next – there is a witch nearby, for the “weak spirit” it is quite unpleasant.
