    Hello all, I am the leader of Sparkle Motion and one of two "mods" who have paid accounts in our party. We do loads of quests since the two of us can buy gems with gold we earn, it's a lot of fun. I recruited @rainbowbarnacle a couple of months ago, and eventually she pulled all of the rest of the Northfield crew into habit hell with us and it's been a fun ride having so many itty bitty members.

    Right now our party is already at the bursting point; a party is meant to be about 6 people and we have 11 already. I would add a bunch more, but it makes quests completely unwieldy to manage, and also makes quests end extremely quickly once everyone is past the beginning stage and can start Brutal Smashing all over the place.

    However, I have been wanting to make a Kintsugi guild for ages now, and even had starting a thread here and creating the guild on my To-Do list. I will start putting that together asap. Guilds are meant to be any size, and are more geared toward challenges and social interaction. (You cannot quest with your guild, but you can earn gems through challenges you win if someone has the gems to award.)

    Also, re To-Do's, they can never damage you, even if you delete them. Clicking off dark red to-do's will give you a huge pay off, but the draw back is that leaving them to sit means that if you allow a boss to deal you and the party damage, the damage is a bit more brutal. However, there are lots of spells to mitigate that effect; healers can buff constitution for the party, heal damage, and cure their own tasks of decay. If you are concerned about task decay, just be a healer or switch to healer every once in a while.

    (@Sparkle Motion members: To switch classes, poke a mod and she'll give you gems. I'm low on gems at the moment because of all the new members, but AlderQueen has loads I think. We have a system; she spends hers on quests and I spend mine on making sure the party has fun buying seasonal items and welcoming new members, but I tend to run out more than she does so she's also happy to throw gems at people.)

    I'm happy to answer any questions people have; I've been playing the game for a few years straight now, along with my former university roomate (the other mod) and my husband. We've had a lot of members shuffle in and and then back out a few months later depending on their interest, but Sparkle Motion is still going strong. If we ever lose a bunch of people again, I'll make sure to add some kintsujin as we get space.

    gotta not overwhelm myself by trying to do all the things. or by making ten squillion to-do items and then getting discouraged. still, i had a productive day despite having had an early PT appointment, and that's a new one on me!

    I need to get back on my account. Tempted to just make another, honestly, I haven't touched mine in An Age And a Half.

    #where an age and a half is over a year #I put it on vacation when we lost the hosue and ain't touched it since
  6. It might be worth dusting off the old account, actually. I got two pets from sticking around.

    Alright! I've made the Kintsugi Guild. Right now it's open to anyone to join, but if it ends up with spammers or anything I'll close it and just send invites to anyone who wants.

    Please talk here or over there in the group chat about what challenges you want me to set using the guild gems! c: I'll also be happy to set challenges if people like with my personal gems when I have extra. To join scroll down and the button should be on the left under Challenges.

    Click Here And Join!

    If for any reason that link doesn't work for you, pm me your user id (NOT YOUR API TOKEN) and I'll invite you personally.

    It's a zombie flying pig. So, yes. You can also ride cacti, hedgehogs, octopi, tyrannosaurs, and rocks.

    **Cron, I spelled it wrong.

    From the Cheetah quest: "All damage to and from a boss is tallied on cron (your day roll-over)."

    The same is true for resetting silly spells unless you buy the cure, and like, why?

    ok this is weird. i've never liked the "earn your small pleasures" mentality before. maybe because it dredges up shit from my childhood, idk. it always made me resentful and angry and stubborn, and took all the joy out of the thing i 'earned'.

    but i just sat down with a tall vodka tonic and a bowl of chips, and i'm enjoying them more for having 'bought' them with game gold.

    what happen.

    Secret Squirrel certainly something

    I started using Habitica a few weeks ago because I have no mental reference for "how many things is an appropriate number of things to do in a day". It's helped quite a bit. I have zero idea how the social aspects work, though, and also how are classes decided? I have just been messing around and getting pets. XD

    EDIT: I am Shingleback on Habitica.
