Habitica has a vibrant community, and new Guilds arise all the time. This year, we’re highlighting some of the newer or smaller Guilds which may not get as much traffic as Guilds that are higher up in 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 the potential to grow. Spot something that sounds right up your alley? You know what to do!

Gamified ReadingIf you’re into scaling the slopes of Mount TBR (that’s Mount To-Be-Read) or risk falling into the clutches of the Reidmorr monster making you pile your reading list higher and higher all the time, the Gamified Reading guild is a new guild which will have regular challenges to help you make more time for reading, reduce your book purchases, and keep up with all your reading obligations!

Stitchcrafters GuildPlagued by UFOs (that’s Unfinished Objects!) and a burgeoning stack of embroidery patterns you need to get around to sometime? This guild has a chat and challenges aimed at helping you get on top of that!

MinimalismLooking for a guild to help you in simplifying, decluttering and clearing your mind? This guild is aimed at people looking for all of those things, with challenges aimed at helping you do just that in all areas of your life.

If any of these Guilds appeals to you, then go ahead and join, and don’t forget to say hi to the group or let them know what you’re aiming to do!

If none of these Guilds are up your alley, why not check out previous Guild Spotlights for more ideas? And next month there’ll be a whole new post with more ideas for potentially overlooked guilds to join!

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.

Competition ColosseumIf 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 BloggersRunning 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.

This Guild has you covered, with challenges for reading specific stories and space to chat about any short story that you want to share.

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…
