In large part to me getting lost (multiple times), we already have a decent amount of exploring done.
Port New Hope contains safe houses for people just joining in. There the stone building on the North side that has two rooms with beds, and then there's a wooden shack on the south side of the lake with another bed. Feel free to use them.
Good job to whoever is building the Death Star. I laughed when I saw that on the map.
Sparta is the city I am making.
