Seeking at least one more teammate for Habitica, so we can tackle some bigger quests. A healer would be fantastic, but really, I wouldn't say no to someone of any class.

We want to take on the Call of Octothulu, and a healer is highly recommended. We've got three rouges and a warrior. Yeeeaaaaaah.

Edit: Should have disclosed also that all of us are from Shakesville. If you're not comfortable with playing in such a group, that is totally cool, and I hope you find a good group that works for you instead.

Uuuurrrrrgggggggghhhhhh =_=

So my internet went out for twenty-four hours, starting at noon yesterday. What with one thing and another, I was unable to get a connection again until this afternoon.

That means I broke my 25+ day streaks on Habitica :(

I am sad and annoyed.

On the plus side, I did learn pretty much definitively exactly how reluctant I am to keep said dailies up without the motivational check-ins. (Answer: Extremely.) Definitely going to sign up to be a sponsor - possibly tomorrow. Tonight I need sleep.

After nearly a week and finding eight more hatching potions after using my first, I finally found a second egg.

Now I just gotta decide which hatching potion to use on my new fox egg. My choices are Desert (3), White (2), Red (1), Gold (1), and Zombie (1). I hatched my wolf egg as a white pet, since I got two white hatching potions right away and didn't want to wait around for another, but now I have choices.

Welp! Time to stare at the Gen 1 mount pics in the Wiki.

(Note to self: Make a Habitica icon. ...Possibly put "Make Habitica icon" on the To-Do List.)

I've started adding movies and books to my Habitica to-do list, because I keep buying them and then not reading or watching them. I have at least three complete anime series on my shelves that I have yet to see one episode of, and more than three that I've started but haven't finished yet. I'm not sure I want to think about my unread manga.

So I'm giving this a shot. You'd think consuming media I nominally enjoy would be its own reward, but apparently said reward can't compete with the instant gratification of the internet.

So I joined Habitica (AKA HabitRPG) on Friday, and so far it's going pretty well for me? It's only my fourth day in, but I've grown to level three and accomplished a couple of things that have been on my to-do list for a loooooong time now. I am cautiously optimistic about keeping things up! Especially since it looks like there's a system in place that allows you to go on vacations or whatever without losing HP for missing daily tasks.

Anyway, level three means that the item drop system has been activated, and I got a wolf egg to commemorate this! I'm guessing that everyone gets an egg once they reach level three and activate said system, since the guy who first introduced me to the game had (at the time) just reached level three and gotten an egg himself, and they supposedly drop randomly after you complete tasks. It was a bit of a struggle the first day not to add too many tasks and get overwhelmed, and it may be again now that I need to get a hatching potion by random drop 9_9a I need to look into item drop percentages so I can manage my expectations.

I'm not at all sure how I feel about forming a party yet. "Social Accountability" is one side of a coin whose other side is "Peer Pressure and Shaming". Plus, there's a fair amount of stuff there that seems to be associated with weight, which I'm not even remotely fond of. So I might just keep my nose out of the social aspect and stick to solo gaming. It's helped me do stuff so far, I'm not going to risk breaking it if I don't have to.

Anyway, we'll see how it goes. If I make it through a month and still enjoy it, I may go for one of the sponsorship options. In the mean time, I'm off to see if it's got a GameFAQs entry that can talk to me about drop rates.
