I often find myself trying to complete every quest and investigate
every nook too. However, forcing/coaxing players to do the same
ultimately diminishes their range of choices. Given my current plan,
I assume that players that want to "see it all" will need around
four characters, although schedule constraints might reduce this

Does anyone know/guess what the breakdown in player personalities
w/respect to "personally compelled to try every path" is?
