I have long recognized Town as one of my addictions, the other is chocolate.

But within the past few months, I've also realized I want to do other things as well.  So I surf Town, check up on things, catch up and then if no one draws me in, or indicates a desire to play, then I go do the other things until I feel the need to check on Town again.  It seems more and more I'm just surfing, waiting to see if someone else is going to come online, or not.  

If you want to interact with my characters, then send me a nudge, I'm more than willing, I just don't know when others want to play (or not), so I tend to assume the not when I don't hear anything when I get online.

Truer words were never spoken.  Heck, I just took 2 monthes off of no Town.

I don't see it as an obligation, because I can stop whenever I feel like. When i first came here, I never posted here or in the GITP town. It was a nonissue.

However, I choose to play in the town. It's very fun, and takes what I find are the most fun parts of D&D for me (The roleplaying), and speeds it up. I become very attached to my characters (Illustrated by how I'm a bit sad that Mirage is marrying Orion, because it saddens Axl, and by extension me.), and I find the relationships that develop to be fun.

Take for example, my current main character, Axl. He's in love with Mirage. However, she's currently pissed off at him for letting slip that she is a dragon. However, he wounldn't have let it slip if she hadn't been sleeping with him and Orion. Rex sees Axl as a fool, and Frosthand helped him make up his mind.

I can't write stuff like that on my own. If I could, I'd be a millionaire writing soap operas. It's just so much fun to create a character, and toss him into the town and see what happens. So I don't think it's an obligation, but it is surely a pleasure.

Hmmm.. I just stumbled on this thread, and this is really an interesting notion. Personally, I don't really feel like I need to Town, but then again, I've only been a Townie for what, a few months now? So it might not have had an opportunity to set in, but I find some of your descriptions of this, er, "condition" I guess, sehr interressant. I don't think Town should be viewed as mandatory, but as what it was originally intended for on the GitP foruns-entertainment. Very unique entertainment, the like of which I have never seen elsewhere. Quite frankly, I love Town, but I love it like I love a video game or a hobby, not like a person or a pet.
