Health, Level, and Poo:
Walking around requires a lot of Health.
You can replenish your health by standing around for a few minutes, by eating from a tree, or eating some other kind of food.
When your level is very low you can replenish health quickly by just standing still.
There are also Healing Trees, trees that have been aged so they recover more of your health per action.
If you see a Balsam Fir tree that is several hundred years old, you shouldn't chop it.
This tree has been planted there to help navigate the map, and save your life. Just eat from it, and move on.
If you must chop an aged tree, you should plant a few more trees to take its place.

Each action you do will gain you some XP to Level. Each level will increase your Health by 1.

Each time you eat something, you'll gain some poo. You can empty your bowels by stepping onto an Outhouse.


Where to start?:
After completing the Tutorial you'll be encouraged to chop a fence and jump from cloud world.
I suggest not sticking around on cloud world for too long. There is plenty of trees, crops, and random supplies to find on the main world. These trees and crops may have been abandoned by an older player, and will help boost you further into the game.
You first arrive in South Winter Island, at the entrance to some under ground caves. Enter the caves to find a system of portals that take you all around the map.

This pic will show you where all of the portals will take you: http://www.toadwater.com/Guide/images/7/70/Portals.png
This link will take you to the map display: http://tw.trojal.net/map/

You can find your Locus in the Info Center , and match it with the Locus on the map display to find your exact location.
The orange pixels are fences, and the light green pixels are trees.

I suggest you search the map for some trees that are not blocked off by fences, and appear to be accessible on the display map.
These are probably going to be aged trees that are beyond your current levels. Great to use for a quick boost in experience.
After finding a few aged trees you can set-up a script to whittle planks for whittling experience and XP to Level.
While standing on an aged tree you should be safe to whittle planks without manually eating.

After whittling for a while you'll gain some levels and should have an easier time moving around.
Try surrounding yourself with many healing trees!

One of the first things I would do is hiring workers. Workers can help fertilize fields while you do other things. It costs gold to hire them, but not much. They're real cheap.
Using workers is simple. Ctrl+W will open the workers center. Select the worker, select the poo, and click the area you want fertilized. After some time the worker will finish, and you'll be able to use the fertilized land.

A few notes:
Health ticks are every 60 seconds of inactivity. At low levels (I'm guessing 60 or below) you heal 10 health per tick; above that you heal 1 health.
For every 10 days of age a tree has, 0.1 extra health is regenerated. That means every year adds 3.65 (rounded down to 3.6) extra health to regen/eating.
Most actions give 1 "health" experience. The only ones I can think of off-hand that don't are walking and assigning workers.

You'll probably want to find a place to settle while you can still benefit from the increased health regen.

When you find a place to settle, you'll want to cordon it off with fences. You can choose to pound these in by hand, or you can hire some workers to do it for you while you focus on something else.

I was once told that you should only stay on the newbie cloud for about to level 50. After a while you can jump. But staying on till you feel comfortable jumping would be very helpful.
