    Title: The gates to both palaces in Ardoris are unlocked even with a new player

    Details: With a new character (or using a quest rest) the player can run straight to both palaces in Ardoris and then speak to Khasi and Sirano to to start the Episode 1 main quest Love Path. The gates to both palaces are unlocked and can be opened at any time. The guards by the doors even say you can go in. I don't know if this is intentional or not? There might be some notes from Lum as to why he set it that way (or not). Or this is actually bugged.

    It does come across as a bit odd a new player can run right in there and start the chapter 1 love path part just by running up and speaking to both Khasi and Siranto (instead of starting it by getting the letter from Stanley in Soltown).

    If this is intended, there's a couple of other various other issues.

    Steps to Reproduce: With a new character or using a quest reset, run straight toward both palaces and click the levers by the gates and walk into each of the palaces. You can then speak to Khasi and Siranto and start the Episode 1 Main Quest Love Path.

    In the "old days," the gates were locked and the guard were supposed to open them, but the unlocking gimmick wasn't consistently correct and caused a number of gameplay problems so they changed to be unlocked. I'll change the guards responses to not mention the gates are locked. Issue #67872

    This is now fixed in build 1093. I didn't see any mention of the guards saying the doors were locked. Thanks!
