There are no missions the game will make for you .. Those will have to come from what you and your friends want to accomplish.
There are PvE escalations you can take on and build up recipes and expendables and coin.- each escalation you face will be different types of opponents, bandits, goblins, ogres, duergar , elves, skeletons, wolves, humans, elementals etc..
One of you guys should make a company.. and have everyone join it. ( eventually you can attach that company to a settlement)
Get more than 6 players into that company( can use alts to fill the needed spaces), Each account has 3 character slots.. so 6 players in a company with 2 people isn’t that hard to do as it is 2 accounts.
As you and your friends play and do things in game, craft, kill mobs, etc.. your company gains influence.
The more people you add the higher your influence cap will be ( There are diminishing returns on that.. so after 30-40 characters consider making a second company.. just to have more influence to spend later)
Influence can be used to take over hexes with outpost and holdings. These generate bulk resources you can sell or stock up until the day comes you want to try to take over a settlement.( bulk resources are needed to keep your settlement running)
Influence is also the PvP currency right now.. you can use it to feud other companies , so you can fight them without reputation hits.
Crafting and gathering are also activities you can do.. since all gear is player made. You have to come up with a way to keep yourself in gear. Do enough PvE and escalations to acquire enough coin to buy the gear you need. Or have a few folks focus on crafting and gathering things you will use.
Think of characters as roles, you aren't limited to just one class, you spend xp on the skills you want and can mix and match to your hearts content.
The game is xp over time so one character can learn everything, it would just takes years of xp to have everything mastered on one character.. but in a few months you could be a decently paired cleric and fighter type character or something like that..
Each account only allows 1 character to learn xp at a time, even though you can make 3 on your account.
Currently it is PC only, a new company is hopefully taking over development at the end of July.. so who knows what plans they have for future play options and support. ( no official word who it is so we call them NewCorp right now)
