We have recently started a group on Fitocracy, and today marks the start of our first fitness challenge! Check out the details, and join us for an epic fantasy tabletop-themed fitness adventure, just in time to get you in shape for convention season!
Geek Forge Fitness Quest
We’ve always been fans of eating right and being healthy. We joined Fitocracy, a site with a mobile app that lets you gamify your physical activities. Everything from yard work to planks have a point value, and you level up as you continue to exercise. The community is extremely supportive, and there are all sorts of people active. So we thought it’d be fun to incorporate our geekiness with our exercise.
We’ve created a group – the Geek Forge Fitness Quest group – to have challenges to keep everyone in their top fitness game, while making it fun and geeky. You do have to join Fitocracy to play, but joining is free, and you can do it with or without a Facebook or Twitter account. We’re going to have 4-session quest challenges, and keep track of the leaders and participants here. Missed the first session? Don’t worry, we love new players!
July 26-August 9 – Up, up and away! (Session 1 of 4)
Captain Super Dude is looking for a new sidekick! He wants to see how fast you can run, how high you can jump, and what your best catchphrase is. On the other side of town, Doctor Destructionator is looking for a new sidekick as well. He wants to see how nefarious you can be, how complicated your schemes are, and how good you are in fighting off good! Both will be watching closely!
August 13-August 27 – More powerful than a locomotive! (Session 2 of 4)
Captain Super Dude and Doctor Destructionator have chosen @jigokusei and @Kamapuaa to lead their teams. Now the two superpowers are on the hunt for the strongest man (or woman) around to add to their new teams. Lift those cars, and remember, you’re being watched!
Quest 1: Dungeons and Dragons
May 21-June 2 – Building the Party (Session 1 of 4)
It’s the first session of the tabletop game. You’ve all been thrown together for poorly-explained reasons that the GM doesn’t want to discuss anymore. Whoever gets the most points gets to be leader of the group! This is a series of four challenges for our first adventuring party!

July 8-July 21 – Into the Belly of the Beast (Session 4 of 4)
It’s all led up to this – supersoldier leading the party, TheBarron finding the best path and rainsdance scouting ahead on the stairs. You are now in the lair of Dragon Greedy.
