    Title: Instruments Hint Box
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No

    When a new character first enters Solace Bridge Outskirts via the boat from Solace Bridge, they arrive at the Riverside Guard Post and immediately receive a hint box about how to play musical instruments. There are several problems with this box:

    (1) The text is tiny and for me, extremely difficult to read. (This also applies to the POT hint box that appears later.)

    (2) The text is too long to read without scrolling, and the point where you can drag the box bigger is also tiny, almost too awkward to use. (Again, this also applies to the POT hint box.)

    (3) When the box first appears, there are no musical instruments nearby and no apparent reason for the hint to be relevant. Inexplicably, there IS a piano in the scene, but it's several yards away and on its side; most players won't be able to tell that it's a piano until they're considerably closer. It's also unusable (what with being on its side and all), so even if the hint appeared when you were closer to it, it still wouldn't really be relevant.

    Suggestion: Move this hint box so that players receive it when they enter the Soltown inn, where there's a piano right by the door; this will probably be the first playable instrument most newbies run across. The hint box itself could also use some UI love.

    Steps to Reproduce: Take a new character from Solace Bridge to Solace Bridge Outskirts via Edvard's boat.
