Since I had played the beta, I whizzed right through the first mission, met my
Lil' Dinklage Ghost, and flew off to the Tower. I did the few bits of loot gathering, equipped what I had, and blasted off into orbit to go off to my second mission. It was here that I found a feature that was either missing in the beta, or something I glanced over: privacy settings.
Sweet Thor, thank you!
