Yeah, sounds like I really need to slow down and read all those interactions between the character, otherwise I am missing the whole point of the game. But oh man, they are such whiners :) one complained about being nude and I need to get clothes for him but hey, he refused to make his own clothes. And they other likes to insult this nude guy.
I think I need to switch my mindset - this is a game on drama, not Civ V!
edit: oh boy, just witnessed two ladies having a fist fight after insulting each other! Now, that's drama!
