Environ is a hostile place, but the game itself endeavors to teach you everything you need to know as you get started.  However, if you wish to know more about how the game works before playing, or if you're the sort of person who simply prefers external manuals, then these are the links for you!

Multiplayer Co-Op: Differences From Solo Play, And Other Notes

HellishFiend:
Recently picked up the game and tried it out. One thing I would definitely make sure and add to the tombstones in the tutorial is a note about what is NOT available to the player yet at civilization level 1. I wasted a bit of time trying to build up my settlement at the start, and didn't realize for a while that there wasnt anything I could do yet!  :P

In fact, for those like me, it would be great to have a summary somewhere in-game as to what gets unlocked at what level. That should also keep people interested in getting deeper into the game, as well.

Actually, your inference of what's not available there is incorrect -- you're perfectly able to build up your settlement at tier 1.  We're working on an extended in-game tutorial for guardian powers, that's one of those things that's lacking in-game but which we're trying rectify this week. You're far from the only one confused about those at the moment!

Really? Interesting. I clicked on just about every button I could find in every menu I could find, and could not seem to find anything that wasnt unavailable to me. Looking forward to finding out what else I can tinker with.

Here is the progression we plan to incorporate into the game:

1. Get granite.  Then get and use a residential and storage tower NPC.

2. Get Purple shards. Now get a Stonebinder Tri-Tower.

3. Now that your Stonebinder should be at level 3, get blue shards and use an Aquaurgists Well.

4. Now that you can make windshelters when you want, get green shards and make a Lumbermancy Focal Station.

From this point, all the guardian power buildings should be available to you, assuming you have the proper materials.
