I've played Achaea on and off for at least twelve years. Cyrene was the first city I migrated towards when I was younger (although my very, VERY first character was with the Circle of Druids), and while I've re-rolled a few times in different places, I've always had issues in games in general with sticking to more than one character. Tillie's personality is easy for me, and while I enjoy role-playing her with others, I really want to find a way she could become passionate about a certain cause and become helpful to others in a city and House. I know the only way I can participate in some of the amazing things I see you guys writing about is by getting involved in something...
I'm just having issues figuring that out. A rogue life suits her for the time being, and I think using this time IG to explore and talk to others about their walks in life may prove useful. Buuut, I also worry about growing ultimately bored of being a wandering minstrel.
A lot of you have changed cities and houses from time-to-time, even remained unaligned for a few IG years. I admire the ability to create multifaceted characters with motivation that gets them involved in a lot of things, and allows them to grow. This prompted me to ask you guys if you'd be willing to share advice about creating that motivation, or how that motivation occurs (because obviously, I am a dumb and haven't figured it out yet). Also, if you are willing, to simply share big changes that have been for better/worse with your character, and how they developed from one faction to the next - whether it be an extreme conversion or not.
I guess I'm just a little nervous of Tillie feeling stagnant to me again, and ultimately falling off the face of Achaea for a time. Once again: I could roll an alt...but it's not something I really like doing, or ever seem to commit to. I would much rather create motivation to uproot Tillie to another place eventually. But I also understand that the richest experiences IG come from committing to some semblance of a cause and banding with others towards it. I suppose that's her biggest weakest right now: she's just sort of jaded about a lot of things.
