When you accidentally greet people IRL with 'Pelail'...

you spend about an hour perusing the " you know you're addicted" thread to see when you first posted to the "you know you're addicted thread"
I've spent most of my money on beer, fast women, and fast cars. The rest I just wasted .

You voice most of your character's lines, in the best impression of their voice you can manage, because you really want to get the cadence on their nervous stutters and pauses right.

You feel 'lazy' because you only ate 300 of the 325 food items at an event.

You spend a good six hours fiddling with your outfit's appearance so that it matches that of your static model. And then spend the next month thinking up and making adjustments to that outfit, despite their being no way for anyone to see it.

You click on the above-linked scenario of Avlis addiction to see if you can pick up on some now likely irrelevant lore that you missed from before you joined despite the fact you know in your heart you will never be able to share it with anyone you know in real life because your love of Avlis would compromise your real world credibility if you ever made it public. Despite this, you still greet every stranger online with 'pelail' as you roam the cosmos for another individual saved by the glorious light that is Avlis. You don't care that your eyes will be insidiously pixelated as you read post to post until you get sleepy and try to sleep but because you read so many posts, it is time to begin the new day IRL, but you can't distinguish time IRL from time in Avlis. You start to think "My boss cast magic armor on my paycheck" Or "I need sonic protection from my annoying neighbor at the block party tonight'. You tell your friends that you can't go pub crawling because you have to do legitimate pub crawling in Avlis, and when they see you up at 3 in the morning and look into your eyes, they can see the reflection of the result of the D 100 role that dictates you get to be 4th in the collection of loot. When you see an elven word on the item you got from Pub crawl, you go onto the Avlis wiki and memorize the whole vocabulary of Nanshile but it doesn't sate your lust for linguistics so you proceed to learn the conjugations and then you read the word Fegalishhaven, and It happens yet again! Your family calls, and your utility bills go unpaid, but the will save you passed protects you from these obstacles. You don't need to save your location, your will to play Avlis keeps you right where you need to be located because you know you are addicted to Avlis.

The first thing you do when you wake up is check the forums to see what you missed while you were sleeping.

You realize that Avlis is your only source of social interaction.

You have a craving for tobacco and you don't even chew, so you end up cursing to yourself about it.

When you really should be in bed by 10 PM, but you spend an extra 90 minutes looking for an inn room for your character to go to sleep for the night! oo8)

How do I get to the dentist in the town I've lived in my entire life? Let me use the GPS. How do I get through the hobgoblins? Yeah, that I could do blindfolded.
