Hey there! I've very recently taken up the HoN position in my House and am looking to shape up our current novice program. I really want to create something fun and efficient that novices will not dread doing, and novice aides won't feel burdened with. My goal is to move new players through the program and get them out actually playing and interacting with other players while also instilling a sense of actually belonging to the House.
That said, what kinds of things do your Houses like to do to not only teach but also engage your novices? How do you teach them everything they need to know without bogging them (and your aides) down? In short, what do you think makes a good novice program?
