Ugh I used to play d&d...but the guys I was playing with didn't listen to my ideas....(obviously if a lvl 20 troll doesn't let anyone cross a bridge....and your Lvl 5.trying to shoot the troll isn't going to work. Like it didn't.....it only killed everyone but me since I gave the troll coin. Whig then I had to wait for the group to all make new characters) ANYWAY if anyone reads this id say id love to try it. I think sending emails and a certain day to start character creation would be awesome! Everyone would start at the same time. Making lvling a true game. :)

Love the idea. Just like everyone else. I am just sad that no one ended up posting their characters like they said they would. I might look into this idea in the future, but I have so many goals and reward schedules and such in place right now, that it doesn't really seem needed at the moment. But if I notice that something isn't working, I will probably work this in. Also... a few ideas...

You could give yourself quarters / dollars or whatever, as part of your rewards, and just like you will often save up money to buy something super awesome in games, you could save up to buy something that you really want. And make it something that you can only use your reward money to buy.

You could also make rewards time. Like allowing yourself time to do something super relaxing and selfish, like give yourself a pedicure. Or you could even do it for game time. If I do a 10 minute workout today, my quest reward is 2 hours of game time. Or whatever.

I know cute outfits are one of my favorite things about gaming. So you could even make a printout of your character, and then when you do your daily quest, or get your weekly level, you could go online and print out a new outfit for your character... kinda like a paper doll from when you were a kid.

I love coming up with creative ideas, so I thought I would toss em out there. Happy questing all!

This is quite possibly the coolest and most exciting idea I have heard in a very long time. I am definitely going to make up a character. Probably not right now though because I am going to crash at any second...

I'm going to give this a shot. I am a video-gamer... but I will try for this. Do you make up a character?

I love RPG video games... so this should be interesting!

I'm new to Spark and just starting a Weight Loss program. I could use a lot of encouragement!

I LOVE the character quest/reward idea! Aside from helping to protect an endangered species, that's the primary reason I joined this group! How awesome!

I have a major issue with looking at the small picture. Calling them "quests" rather than goals really clicks with my brain. You can't just go after the dragon. You need a magic sword first, and cannon fodder errr I mean friends to help and so on... I'll be writing my module soon hopefully.

I'm really tired today. Going to the grocery store wore me out. That should give ou an idea of where I am.

So I realize I am entering this thread really late...sometimes I fail!

I think this idea is brilliant! I am going to work out a system of goals/rewards for myself and I will post my successes (and failures...I am realistic) every day starting on Monday!

Much like Moxy, I usually do better on things when I make a commitment that other people can see than if I choose to do something quietly. So hopefully knowing you guys will be watching, I can successfully lvl my character!

Thanks for the idea! I'll be posting on Monday!

I love this idea! I've been aimlessly searching for a new pen and paper group for years without finding a good fit. Making my weight loss also an outlet for those creative thoughts sounds neat. Once I get over this "plague" I'll come up with something. Good luck all!

This is a great idea. I love it! now... which one of my many D&D characters should I pull for this... I might have to talk to the hubby...

You can make it a great day or not. The choice is yours.

I also really like this idea. So now I have to decide if I want to create a new character or use one from a D&D game. Hmmm...

Oh! But first, maybe I should post to the intro thread.

I just joined the team and I ran across this thread. This is a great idea. If there's one thing that drove my guild nuts its that I always preferred leveling to end game.

So I'm off to actually post in the intro thread and then I think I'll start up my new toon, err character.

Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until the point you realize this is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be.

Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses.

This is a great idea. My poor acrobat/entertainer was marooned by a GM who got married (don't blame him, he's allowed to have a life *mutter, mutter*).Deciding on rewards, that may be difficult.

I am so joining in on this! Such a cool idea! I am either going to create a new character for this or use one of my guild wars characters!

Ooh, this sounds like fun. My D&D character is getting retired in a couple weeks (the DM had to get a job that has an awful schedule for gaming, so he's having us wrap up our adventure), so I might use her for this....or maybe one of my EQ2 characters :-)

Gotta mull this over!

I am such a game junkie that when I saw this my first thought was OOH that looks like fun! I have never played the pen and paper games so excuse me if my roleplaying is amatur-ish lol

I can't believe I am down over 70 pounds since last year!

OMG- I love this!

I'm going to talk to the other DM in the house (whose game is currently not running so he needs something to keep him fresh!) and see if he would be willing to come up with "quests" and rewards for me! That way (since I'm a fairly extroverted type) it's not just for me but showing it to someone else as well!

I'll post my "quest" once we figure it out! Thanks so much!

I will not take credit for this because I took this idea from a girl who is on the Everquest sparkteam with me but I thought it might be a fun challenge that us Gamer Girls would enjoy!

Basically you made a new thread for yourself that you keep updated with your character name, class, race, any other info you want to give and then each week you work on a quest (goal)

Ex here is mine for the week (I will make my own thread with this same info to start)

Monday 9/28/2009

My name is Agela Holystorm, I am a Level 1 High Elf Wizard but I am married to Human Paladin, thus the last name of Holystorm.

I used to be a slender thing being a High Elf and all but now I feel/look like a big-belly Troll! Last week I fell in battle with the plague.

This week I need to build my stamina back up and will start off with a simple level one quest of:

Drinking Ten 8oz glasses of water a day.
Reward: exp and a new bottle of nail polish


9/28 - 10/4

Mon-
Tue-
Wed-
Thu-
Fri-
Sat-
Sun-

1 point per day, 7 points = new level


I can't believe I am down over 70 pounds since last year!
