Missed a challenge and getting started halfway through. Life has been crazy busy. Got my costume done (ish) for Steamposium and that was a fun event. Pictures are still on my camera. Continuing from my previous "Self as a Dungeons and Dragons 5e character" themes. I am halfway to level two which will be next challenge. Dex: Kick balance Practice 3 times a week on finding the right spot when I pivot for kicks. My side kick and round kick aren't fast enough, it takes me too long to find my balance. Enhancing my Proficiency in Artisan Tools: Finish a book. I am working on a handwritten book for my son's birthday, and I need to finish it before his birthday (the 25th)
Following up on the previous challenge with the Dungeons and Dragons Theme Main Quest: Defeat the Villain Within: Loose weight and be Be healthy So in 5th edition you pick your character with three key pieces of information, Race (Human, Elf etc), Class (Monk, Rouge, Wizard), and Background (Sage, Pirate, Artisan). Last Challenge I started with Race, and now on to Background. I feel like the Sage background works best with my job in Information Technology and inclinations of a geeky nature. In standard DnD stats I feel like the following:STR DEX CON INT WIS CHA 9 9 9 13 11 10 Background: Sage 1.A Sage is skilled in HistoryI have looked at ancient method of food preservation and will be trying to culture some vegetables, a la sauerkraut etc. So I will be trying at least two types of cultured veggies this challenge. 2. A Sage knows where to find information he doesn't haveI need to work on relationships and accountability. So I need to post regularly and follow other regularly on the forums to build that knowledge and connection to the community. I should be reading and posting at least 3 times a week on the forums, I should be reading one book a week on health topics (or medical research articles). 3. A Halfling is nimbleA repeat from last challenge. I need to improve my flexibility and height of my kicks. I have yet to find what exactly I am doing, but I need to start somewhere. Life. A Sage has proficiency in ArcanaArcana: relating to the arcane, convoluted, nitpicky and other hidden arts. My wife and I are going to be setting a variety of personal goals. A few physical, but most related to things around the house and our routines. We are setting a goal of 400 points. All members of the family can contribute by their own goals, and when the 400 points is reached we can get a Wii U. For example, my daughters getting out of nighttime pull-ups can earn points, or my son in first grade reading a book a week, or my wife and I spending a day off electronics, etc. Some points for finishing projects we keep procrastinating etc. We actually are going to talk about the final specifics tonight.
So last challenge I started out strong and things fizzled a bit, especially on the posting. So lets go again even if a week behind. Main Quest: Defeat the Villain Within: Loose weight and be Be healthy Last challenge I started with the Dungeons and Dragons Theme and I figure I will continue with that a bit for the next few challenges. So in 5th edition you pick your character with three key pieces of information, Race (Human, Elf etc), Class (Monk, Rouge, Wizard), and Background (Sage, Pirate, Artisan). So for this challenge I will start building the character with Race. I feel like a chubby stout halfling, enjoying my food and writing. In standard DnD stats I feel like the following:STR DEX CON INT WIS CHA 9 9 9 13 11 10 Race: Stout Halfling 1.A Halfling (Hobbit) is nimble: (+2 Dex)Stretches, and flexibility routines 3 times a week. My wife and I have been complaining of this, so hopefully we can do it together. 2. A Stout Halfling resists poison: (advantage to save vs poison)How else to resist poison than to stick with eating lots of good food. Target 3 -4 cups of vegetables a day, and explore better cheat foods. 3. A Halfling is Brave: (Advantage to saves vs. fear ) For some reason I hate going to testing, so I need to practice my TaeKwonDo form and get to testing this month. Life. A Halfling is Lucky: (reroll natural 1's)Still working on getting things done like last time. Do one project a a week. We have to paint the garage inside (previous owner smoked in a lounge he created in the third bay of the garage), and I want to finish writing this Sojourner Tales Story Module I have been working on, etc. I will post about the project each week as we decide on what is the priority. Images from Morguefile.com and yes I reused them from last challenge, oh well.
So I have been gone from actively participating in the Nerd Fitness Forums for about a year. Things got tricky with tennis elbow and life in general. Now things are on the mend and it is time to get back into the swing of things, and time to move from Adventurers to Monk. In late 2014 my wife, my son and I started doing taekwondo. So monk makes the most sense. Main Quest: Defeat the Villain Within: Loose weight and be Be healthy Following the trend of SevenFootGeek I will theme around Dungeons and Dragons, but more the 5th edition. In that version you have proficiencies that can be acquired and an overall proficiency bonus. By nature I would have to call myself a chubby human wizard, but it is time to be more of a monk. I seek the following Proficiencies: 1. Proficiency in Dexterity Saves:I need more flexibility and to be more anti-fragile. This should be obvious given my brief sciatic pain, tennis elbow and recent back pain. So it is time to do stretches, maintenance therapy, or yoga type exercising 3 times a week. 2. Cooking Proficiency:To get back to my setup when I lost a bunch of weight, eat 4-5 cups of vegetables a day. To do that I need to find new ways to cook veggies. Try a new vegetable focused recipe each week. 3. Proficiency in Unarmed combat: Go to Taekwondo class twice a week and practice at other times. 3a. Bonus goal, make it to green belt in the challenge. There is only one testing day in the challenge so it may or may not happen by the end. 4. Proficiency in Organization: We moved in October and things are still horrendously disorganized. Pick a new room/area each week and spend time to organize it. (Likely in this order; Pantry, Kitchen, Master bedroom, Kids playroom, Bonus room, Garage) Images from Morguefile.com
