HabitRPG

My Life – The Role Playing Game:

I am totally geeking out about HabitRPG. I’ve been using it since Tuesday and I just spent the last 30 minutes helping The Hubby set up an account. Since Tuesday I’ve kicked out several chores that I’ve been putting off for weeks, and I’ve started doing measly little tasks that I have a tendency to ignore, like getting the mail and bringing my coffee travel mug in from the car at night (instead of leaving it in the car where every day it’s joined by one of it’s fellow brother or sister mugs until I run out of mugs and then haul ‘em all inside to get washed).

I love that’s it’s all self-defined – YOU decide what is a habit, a daily chore or a one-off to-do task. You decide what belongs on the list or not. If you don’t do a chore, you take damage. If you do a task you get gold which you can use to buy armor and weapons for your avatar. And I’m even in a Party with other people online and right now we’re fighting a boss creature for gold and loot. I’m still trying to figure out how that works, but apparently today I attacked a 300 point Fiery Gryphon for 26.8 damage, so woo-hoo for me and us!

Are any of you playing?

    I’ve been playing since mid-December, and I really love it. The to-do lists got me through all the little tasks needed to pack and move, and the habits have helped me establish myself as the Roommate/Coworker who has his shit together.

    I don’t know how long I’ll be able to keep it going, but I’ve checked off Floss 91 days in a row… that makes me happy.

    Let me know if your party needs a third wheel!

      Yay – I’ve flossing on my habits list, too!

      I feel you on this. I’m waiting for it to get boring, but it’s working for me now!

    I just signed up. But I’m so boring it will take me awhile to get anywhere, and I feel like it’s cheating to click a reward for remembering to breathe and such. I’ll have to try to think of more tasks…

      I’ve some “remember to breath”-type entries in my habits. :)

    This does sound like a great way to stop endlessly putting things off. Signed up and have begun setting things up.

    How does this party/guild thing work?

    Yeah, I just started the other day! Already made a guild to address a gap I saw in my options: “Atheists, Feminists, and other No Good Commies”
