What is there to do at the Endgame? - Kenshi

I decided to create this page since when I originally got Kenshi I always got bored very quickly because I could never figure out what there was to do in the game. I knew I was leveling up my characters and getting them better gear to take out harder enemies but... where were those enemies and was there any purpose to killing them aside from, "OK cool, I beat him"?

That's more or less what this guide is for. I created this guide to give people a wide variety of different goals they can aim for in Kenshi so that you finally have something tangible to work towards. For the most part the goals are not in any specific order on this page and you can pick and choose whichever ones interest you the most.
