2017/1/23/23:06 Yeah, I feel like pressured to do shit when i'm hardly around. So I just like wake up and work.

2017/1/23/23:08 Hrm maybe I should then. Like, this feels like chores ya know? Do this, do that. Get this level, read this, make a poster. Like dude, I just wanna play and have fun. Not petty chore work. We're not all into gaining social rank.

2017/1/23/23:17 //the chore stuff? It's retarded. We had them in all guilds* but usually once you attain guild rank 3 you're good. You can progress if you wish to attain leadership positions.

2017/1/23/23:23 //Yeah? It's kind of dumb if you ask me. While I get it's useful to help novices, beyond a point it becomes work. People play games to not work.. generally.

2017/1/23/23:25 //It's kind of a trend I've noticed a bit here at least. It's almost like most substance isn't there, so it's compensated with mindless work. LIke there's conflict, but it's very generic.

2017/1/23/23:26 Like between targ and mhaldor. I evil, you good.. we fight. That kind of generic conflict. Whereas personal grievences and clan wars are rare. I'd love to see more of that. Like a faction rise out of nowhere and wage war against another with some agenda that's not strictly "You are evil, I must destroy you."

2017/1/23/23:28 Like control of an area or land. Taxing people who pass through it, while it may be dickish it's viable and roleplay. Opens the door for another clan to rise up fighting off the marauders. Maybe i'm alone in thinking that sort of thing is fun.
These messages were sent to me as part of a longer conversation, and... while I don't feel it's my place to reveal the person who sent them, I do encourage this person to reveal themself, and will acknowledge if/when that happens. I'm posting them here because I think there are some points made that are worth discussing. The only edits I made were to redact the name and add an asterisk for a footnote. Speaking of which:
*They were talking about Lusternian ones.
