Motivation RPG

Frequently Asked Questions

What's this all about then?

This is a website that I wrote for myself. I'm that guy who sits for eight hours a day, and it was really about time that I did something about it. Plain old strength of will wasn't helping, so I made this to remind me to keep moving.

What are the stats?

The skills for your character are fitness, voice, mood, health and intelligence. There will be others as the list of activities improves. Each real-life activity is linked to one of those attributes, so once you complete one of those activities, both your character's and your own skill increase in that area. Doing pushups, for example, will improve your fitness rating in-game and make you more fit outside of the game. Mood is affected by simple activities that should make you feel better. Intelligence is improved by simple thought exercises.

What do I do with the coins?

Once you earn a few coins, you can visit the RPG section and buy spells and equipment. By doing this, your attack messages become more interesting and randomized.

Can I have it beep at me?

In the options, there is one called "Countdown Intrusiveness". Here you can set how annoying the timer is. For an audible alert and (most likely) a forced change of focus to the page, change the dropdown box to "titlebar countdown and alert box"

I've forgotten my password!

What is the privacy policy?

We store your username and an encrypted representation of your password so you can log in. Google Analytics is keeping track of how popular the site is. The Facebook like button at the bottom is probably also up to something, but I told it specifically not to do any analytics, and it doesn't give me any sort of access to your information.
