Hey! I saw your claim on the Nursery, and I wanted to welcome you to the group as a new player! I am also quite new myself, I've been in the group for a while making art but only just finally finished my own esk and am waiting for him to be uploaded to the masterlist!
I was going to offer to help you figure out how to get enough points so you can claim an esk from the nursery! They appear twice a month so even if you miss out on an esk you want this week there should be one coming up very shortly within a week or two (hoping it is spooky and Halloween themed XD) It is super easy to get points fast if you do the art or writing on the right subject or subjects, so I can definitely help you if you are interested in claiming as soon as possible!discord.gg/AzCaFt
Here is an invite to the "Esk Support Group" a small unofficial esk group of new players and experienced players both, everyone is super friendly and would love to talk! We develop our esk together, come up with ideas and storylines, and make art of each others esk for fun
There is also a huge, awesome, official esk Discord group found on the main esk page under "Group Chat!"
