I just came across this and I think its a brilliant idea. I’m testing it out now and I figured it is exactly the sort of thing nerdy show listeners might enjoy. I kind of like the idea of a Nerdyshow guild. I figured it was something I would share either way.

So we, the listeners, will be typing up our characters and accomplishing dailies and earn xp while living out our normal lives?
I like it, now how can i power lvl. How can we make up a guild and what is our purposeJuly 9, 2014 at 2:34 am #39936GarayurParticipant
As I understand it Guilds are sort of interest groups from which challenges and parties can be made. Challenges are tasks you can subscribe to. For example, read the bookclub book. Challenges can include multiple todo’s, habits, and dailies. Guilds can give out prizes for the challenges if they wish. Apparently there is a 4 gem cost to start a guild that I hadn’t realized which costs real world money, but if enough people are interested I will foot the gem cost.
Players can form parties to fight bosses and take on quests. When a party fights a boss they do damage by completing their Daillies and To-Do’s and the entire party takes damage when a player misses a daily. Bosses drop rewards. As you play the game new features unlock and you can earn gold to buy armor, weapons, and pets.
as for power leveling the whole game is on the honor system, but I would say that building good habits and being productive is the most effective way.

I think this is one of those things that most people have had conversations about, but no one gets around doing. I remember talking about this with some geeky friends back in the 90’s when most finns had cellphones with one color screens and most american phones were just a device to show character as “snobby” in movies. (Wait, shit, I’m old.)
This is definitely a cool thing, and if they can offer some sort of illusion of progress (they should talk to the new Blizzard) I’ll be sure to be hooked on my chores in no time. Thanks for pointing this out Garayur.July 12, 2014 at 10:32 am #40014ArmadonParticipant
Rereading this, I think I heard of a school somewhere doing something similar. I cant find the details yet but it was a classroom that was getting kids interested in improving grades by making an RPG.July 12, 2014 at 4:45 pm #40015Sage Zer0Participant
I’ve been on this since the beta, but if you forget to log on you can lose progress, and eventually forget to do it altogether. It’s great if you can make IT a habit in and of itself.
