In the game Clash of Kings, I go by the name Darksheild. I learned early on in the game that if I don’t protect my army while I am at work or a sleep, I get attacked and Loose everything that I worked for. So every night I put up a peace sheild and after I get home from work I find the everyone around me has been attacked. I then distribute what resources I have to my allies to help them rebuild.
I the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints, members are thought to save their resources in case of disasters, such as unemployment, natural disasters, or every the fictional attack in a Facebook game. We do so and because we do, we put ourselves in the position to help protect others. But we must always find ways to prepare for the bad days, for they will come.
We cannot put off preparing our pantry for the winter, for the winter is already here. The Up Store, sells seeds for planting and vacuum packaged, freeze dried, food storage that is designed to keep for years to come.
In the game as in life the player must be humble enough not to take on more than he or she can handle. The debts that we accrue must be managed. If we can’t pay for what we need we must do one of two things, work for it or buy it on credit. These days most of us would buy it on credit, meaning you don’t really own it until you can pay off the debt. Getting over extended in such away can and has put many Americans out on the streets.
