I actually just came across this game a few days ago, as i wasn't art of the original community.
Just got through the beginners areas, and am now level 14. Not completely sure whatI'm doing, but getting the hand of things slowly.
I have no idea what to do in my Grove yet, so it is still the blank default.
Hope to eventual see others online, but My own schedule is kinda strange, so could be hit or miss on a lot of days.
