I shouldn't be forced to invite my friends to play, or have to rely on my friends to help me out so that I can advance through the levels.
earning a single gold bar takes forever and the game wants NINE of them in order to let me skip the part where I have to rely on others to help me.

I play facebook games for relaxation, and having my entire progress come to a grinding halt just because I don't have friends who play this game is a huge turn off and does not make me want to pay for a subscription to the Keeper's Society, nor does it make me want to suggest it to my friends.

Please consider some other, more reasonable alternative that doesn't involve paying real money for a fake game, or having to pressgang my friends into playing.

Thank you.
