I'm attempting to minimize the impact my early game additions are having on the leveling scheme. With the addition of Brandybuck, the modification of the Wolf Cave, and now the Plainwicke Adventure, it's possible to go up an additional six levels or more. What I'd like to know is: Should Brandybuck remain a place you can find by simply passing close by or should there be a person in Blackroot who tells you of the place and marks your map? I'm choosing Blackroot because the player usually has his or her favorite early game followers by the time that place is reached. And please, would more than one or two people respond to this? Thanks in advance.
