The Ryzom Podcast 21! (And the sacrifices we make for our games!)

This really sucks. Picture this: (for some of you this wont be that far off reality): You got 15 bucks left in your bank account, and you got a game sub going through the next day. Also, you have to live off that 15 bux for a few days. What to do? Well, you have to cancel your sub before it goes through, then go write a check for some milk and eggs. That's real life.

 Don't get me wrong, me and the wife make plenty of money. But sometimes, if you aren't careful, suddenly you'll find your bank account dry as well as your cupboard. That's something we all go through.

 At one time I had 6 games going at once, equaling almost a hundred dollars a month I was spending. Again, not an issue until I bounced a check. Ugh, that was stupid. But, when you are addicted to that feeling of discovery, that feeling of finding some new land or downing some cool mob with friends and family, you sometimes forget about the water bill. I think it only gets out of hand when you are simply ignoring your friends and family and bills for the sake of the game or for the pursuit of the loot and level.

 I'm being very open about the fact that I messed up and had to cancel my sub for a week or two until the cash gets back in the account. My job dried up a bit, but is picking back up. But I cannot sacrifice my basic human needs for my game. Although Ryzom is more of a world to me than a game, I still cannot avoid my real life issues.

 Basically, I'm just trying to make myself feel better for screwing up the bills!

Original podcast post:

I'm back again this week with a whole show dedicated to the Tryker race. The next 3 shows after this one will be dedicated to the other races: Zorai, Fyros and Matis.
Excuse my voice, I had been suffering with a bit of allergies. Also forgive any chunks of info I might've missed, I've had a hard week! :)
It's good to be back into the game, but you'll hear me explain in this 'cast why I might be in and out of game for a bit. Financial issues. Let's just say I'm glad Ryzom has a free trial!
Thanks for lissenin', and thanks for the support!
