PR is unusual. Wouldn't that normally be PB (personal best)?

 

It varies by country/region which someone uses. They mean the same thing.

I know I'm new here, but here are a few things I've noticed that would be a nice improvement (I think):

 

1) An app that supports the character page and academy/courses

 

2) An app that integrates with the Apple Health feature so it can be tracked also

 

3) Integration of the character page and forums

 

4) A way to make basic quests, instead of all goals being epic quests. 

 

5) A way to share quests with the community or request friends for a party quest within the character page. 

 

6) An app with basic workout functions (GPS, timer, stopwatch, type of workout, etc). If this were a thing, it could be integrated with the character page to mark complete and assign experience based on real-time results.

 

That's all I can think of for now.

Is it possible to create any Mage class? Maybe a battle mage so it has to do something with training. What would you suggest would such a class look like?

The guilds are based on fitness, and had role playing themes superimposed on them. My recommendation is to pick a guild that best suits your fitness goals and call yourself a mage.

I tend to gravitate towards magic users myself in most RPGs, but they aren't the most obvious of fitness roles. I'd suggest, rather than focusing on magic itself, you consider the effects of that magic. Fireballs and the like are flashy but not really relevant to fitness, so I'd look more at the support magic.

 

I'd also consider that mages gain their power through study and knowledge. So a mage in NF would be someone who focuses on learning and development, and develops spells (processes, guides, training videos, you name it) that can apply buffs to themselves or their fellow party members - or hinder our enemies. For example, a mage might study various websites, books and so on, then carry out numerous experiments to create a potion (e.g. fruit smoothie) that reduces fatigue after a workout.

 

Mages aren't on the front lines like the warriors. They're the research teams in the back, weeding through all the conflicting information we see about our fitness journeys so the rest of us can do better. You can always mix classes, of course - a warrior mage would be a formidable party member; while not as purely strong as a full warrior, they know a lot of tricks that can make them just as effective.

 

And just maybe, if they specialise in the right areas, they might cast the odd fireball.

7 pages later and I didn't see anything with my suggestion so I hope it hasn't been said.  Instead of having the oldest post listed first, maybe put the newest one there and have it go sequentially backwards?

That's not really how forums are built to work, though.  The first post is meant always as a primer to what the conversation is about.  If the newest post was placed first, people would essentially be jumping in at the end of the story and be horribly confused on how things got there.

 

But clicking on the blue orb next to threads lets you jump to the newest post you haven't read.  And nothing wrong with clicking the page number directly to skip to the end. (Hell, I just did it here, since I knew I read this a long time ago and i would be way back in time that way.)

We'd all just be Memento-ing our way through every conversation.
