Collect 100 Mudkip pelts - Goals to Quests
Getting something done can be a grueling task, whether its a new project or running errands. Every week I write down my weekly goals into Evernote. I check off completed goals and add new ones. I then take the actions to achieve these goals and organize them into Wunderlist. I also reactivated my lineage 2 account to see how things in the world were progressing. Its been almost 7 years since I have played an MMO so I had almost forgot what the world was like.
One of the first things I was reminded about in an MMO was the quest system, and I thought about how brilliantly designed they are. Here we had a virtual world that had virtual rewards to virtual goals. I was sent on repetitive tasks in order to achieve something progressive and in interim I progressed my avatar’s role in the story. I thought about how amazing the system to get people to achieve goals. Because at the end of the day that’s all a quest really is a goal.
So I tried a novel idea , I started to organizing my weekly goals into quests complete with rewards. I even gave them funky names like “the jog of a thousand miles” with a small bit of backstory
A battle is coming and you need to get in shape, you need to run once every day for 1 hour in order to receive the badge of flight. Additional rewards: Starbucks power potion (extra whip, lactose free @ 145 degrees)
What? Don’t your to do lists look like this?
I turned my weekly goals into quests and I started leveling up my most important avatar: Me.
I hope this week I get good drops.
(also if I get some feedback on the concept I will do a post next week on how or what I actually did, let me know if that’s something that sounds interesting)
