I probably won't be playing until my modest set of mods get updated but looking forward to it all the same.

I have touched the (ashlands) coastline briefly in my exploration but not enough to warrant starting a new world. When it's out of early access I'll start a new world from scratch.

Waiting until its out of public test and ready for prime time, really looking forward to it.
Ashlands . . . new game mechanics . . . I wonder if they'll be for asthma and emphysema?

It's really nice to see they're filling in so much content, although I'll almost certainly never get to see it.

I doubt I'd be able to muster the skill and tenacity to get all the way to the Ashlands. Hell, I haven't even been past the swamps. So this stuff might as well be a whole other game.

Really hoping at some point they'll get all the late game stuff finished so they can loop back and make the early game more engaging and improve quality of life for the lesser Vikings among us.
