Well, just to update you guys, I finally got my 3rd restart on track. I did it by basically hunting dire wolves and selling furs repeatably until I could find towns who would give me level 1 quests.
I think something needs to be done about the whole lack of quest choice thing…. its not realistic to only have 1 quest to choose from, it should be more like 3 per village.
