Due to recent questions on how to help new players know what to do once starting on the server (here), I think that the Empire should have a quest book or item that tells the player what the next step is. The player would be rewarded for their completion of the quest in items or rupees, and they would be assigned their next quest. It would help new members in knowing what to do next and give them a reason to want to do it. The quests would be simple and would involve basic steps such as claiming a res, posting your first message, going to the wastelands/wild, and other minecraft milestones like mining x number of stone or other blocks. During the quests, it would educate them on EMC rules and features. Each book would be personalized to the player and would update whenever they completed a quest. If they were to lose their quest book, they could receive another one by using a command such as /quest new or by getting one from the empire navigator. They could also view their current quest by doing /quest. All in all, it would boost player retention.
