Off-topic, but I've always been surprised by players like you. In such games, each character has a personal story, a series of quests, and you just lose a lot of content... It's so strange to me, but everyone has their own way, so yes.
So the subtext of what I was saying is that no one matters unless you decide they matter. The content you lose is replaced by the content you create with other people. This is the story that we tell together.
