#TwitchFam Gamers Get Fit Challenge

Members of the #twitchfam decided we wanted to motivate ourselves to get into shape, because we spend so much time sitting and gaming, it’s important to take care of ourselves too.

Now, creating a challenge for this group is harder than it seems. Everyone has their own goals and visions, some of us want to shed some pounds while others of us are aiming to build some muscle. So for the #twitchfitchallenge we’re asking you to make up your own goals and pledge to them. You are essentially competing against yourself, but with the undying support of the #twitchfam we’ve grown to love. Anything is possible.

The goal is to make your pledge attainable, but something also to push yourself and give you the end results you’re searching for. For example, if you want to pledge weight loss, a great goal would be 8-10 lbs, as recommended healthy weight loss is 1-2 lbs per week. (If you don’t have a scale, could also pledge losing a pant size!) You can also pledge something simple like 30 squats a day. It can be as challenging or easy as you need it to be. We’ll post everyone’s pledge, but the actual progress will be done through the honour system. Technically, you can lie to us about the progress, but that’s not going to help you in the end. Also, it kinda makes you a poop head. You don’t want to be a poop head, do you?

The Challenge
Create an attainable fitness goal for yourself. (eg. Weight loss, Muscle gain, no sugar, no soda, healthier eating)
The Duration
Starting December 12th, 2015 until January 31st, 2016.
The Prize
You had fun, you feel good about yourself, and of course you get bragging rights.
The Consequence
Those who do not successfully complete the challenge will be subject to an embarrassing twitch stream. (eg. Stream in a pink bunny onesie.) What you’ll have to do will be left up to the #twitchfitfam winners, so be careful.

What to Pledge
Need some help deciding what you’d like to pledge? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are some ideas.

How to Participate?
There are two ways to pledge. The first is to simply comment on this post with your Twitch username, your pledge, and then get to sweating! You can also tweet at @Orions_Legacy with your pledge. All are welcome to join in this challenge, whether we’re a week in or just starting. Please invite anyone that wants to by sharing this link, and fill out their twitch name, pledge, and twitter (if applicable).

We Dug Down and Persevered

I knew we had a strong guild since the beginning, each member has proven their worth time and time again, but these last few nights were truly a great sight to see! After the celebrations at the tavern, we discussed our next steps, and everyone was ready to buckle down and donate to further our hall. After donating my own material, I stood back in awe as each member flooded in with everything they could carry. I’d like to thank Richard, Skulking, Coralei, Fäustyn, Khaleesi, Jeffen and Deth Angel for their generous donations towards our upgrades. They came so fast and determined it was hard for me to keep up with the tally chart. Although there was still a lot to go, we had enough resources to prep to uncover another area in our hall.

However, for us to progress as a guild we had to come face to face with an unknown enemy. When I gave the call-to-arms the results were outstanding. Richard, Coralei, Ceste, Khaleesi, and Deth Angel came from the mists, ready to stand shoulder to shoulder.

We gathered our first assault group as others prepared for a second wave of attacks. As we pressed the enemy they pressed back just as hard. Our tactics were good, although we lost the first fight, but we rallied again to push forward. The resulting clash of steel and magic in the second assault could only be thought of as mesmerizing. As our members moved as one we were able to secure our hold on the area. Once we had the upper hand we grouped together and pressed the enemy until victory was ours. Cheers rang out among our soldiers as this victory was more than just one battle, but a victory for our guild and it’s hall as well.

As we gathered up our men and our resulting rewards we headed back to the hall; celebrations were to be had at the tavern. We met with a very renowned prospector, gave him his pay and provisions, and as we sat down for a drink, he set off to find us anything good from this great hall of ours. We heard back from him a short while later and he found a rich vein of Aetherium so he set up a mine shaft for us and the tools we need to start harvesting. It wasn’t soon after that we got right back to work, gathering materials and prepping for our next great adventure.

I can’t wait to see what next great adventure awaits us!

Raise a Glass in Celebration

Members of Orion’s Legacy, it is time for a celebration! We worked valiantly to gather the materials we needed to get our very own tavern! First round of drinks is on me!

Every one of you has helped us grow as a Guild, but I would like to personally thank Corelai, Richard, Fäustyn, Skulking, Hurdurp, Khaleesi, Jeffen and Deth Angel for their generous contributions towards this new building of ours.

The Tavern is just the first stepping stone in our path to the great Guild Hall we want, and more so deserve. We have set our eyes on getting an Aetherium mine next. Like the Tavern we will need more resources, and will graciously accept any and all contributions. If you want to help but don’t know what we need you can talk to the Treasurer or any of the council members. You can also look at our acquisition list for up-to-date details.

I hope to enjoy a drink with each and every one of you. And thank you once again for all your hard work. Keep it up!
