Previously, the Guild Spotlight posts here have been based on a theme, but 2019 means time to change things up! Habitica has a vibrant community, and new Guilds arise all the time, so this year, we’re going to highlight some of the newer or smaller Guilds which may not get as much traffic as Guilds that are higher up the list. All of these Guilds have had recent activity and have a minimum number of members; they’re probably a bit quieter than more established Guilds, but they have tons of potential. Spot something that sounds right up your alley? You know what to do!
Competition Colosseum: If you’re looking to mix a little PvP into your Habitican experience, the Competition Colosseum is one of the places you can go. The chat is friendly and active, but the competition is fierce. There will be Challenges sponsored by the owner of the Guild at times, but it’s also possible to issue your own Challenges. In the words of the Guild’s own blurb: “Colosseum challenges are designed to be 1) actual challenges of real life tasks 2) a method for attaining gems 3) a gamified challenge experience 4) a competition.” Sound appealing?
The Bloggers: Running your own blog and looking for tips, tricks, or just commiseration about how many views your magnum opus has had? This is the Guild for you! It can be a lot more fun doing things in company, and blogging can be a pretty solitary activity, so don’t forget to take the time to be social.
Short Story Readers: Need a little downtime, but don’t have the time for a novel? This Guild has you covered, with challenges for reading specific stories and space to chat about any short story that you want to share. Guild members have just been reading Daphne du Maurier’s ‘The Birds’, in case you want to jump in with your thoughts on a creepy classic!
So if any of these Guilds sound like your kind of thing, go ahead and join! You can introduce yourself, or just start sharing your own tips and tricks on the Guild topics. If none of the Guilds on offer appeals to you, just wait until next month and there’ll be a new batch of notable Guilds to help you spice up your Habitican experience…
