i'd like to confirm part of what dolph's p said, there's really no obligation to force your character into work that she ICly or you OOCly find boring. as an example i've been playing for three years, over various characters now, and not a single one has been part of a crafting group because that doesn't seem at all appealing to me. i and they have all still found plenty to do. sure, there have been some instances where i've encountered something that felt like busywork with a disproportionately small bearing on RP, and those instances are worth addressing on a case-by-case basis, but ultimately i don't feel like this is a widespread issue, much less an unavoidable one.
No announcement yet.
