In the end, there is only The Task.

Challenge Accepted is a web-based app that turns your to-do list into a quest log, and turns you into a bold adventurer. Earn experience points for your real-life adventures by treating them like quests in your favorite role-playing games. Are you ready to join the battle?

Challenge Accepted uses HTML5 and CSS3

These things don't display for magical beans on older browsers or Internet Explorer. We recommend Google Chrome, a fully updated Firefox or even Safari for the full experience.



A task (see also: “to do”) is a single action undertaken by you—the adventurer. Tasks are the basic building blocks of Challenge Accepted. Your laundry? A task. That report the boss wants in by Friday? A task. Slaying that dragon? A task, and a hefty one at that.

Clearly, some tasks are more difficult than others: when you complete a task, you’ll assign it a difficulty level, which will determine how many experience points (EXP) you receive for it. Easier tasks earn less EXP, while more difficult tasks earn more.

Any task can be marked as “enduring.” This will cause the task to remain in your Quest Log even after it’s been completed, so that you may complete it again in the future. Enduring tasks always retain the same settings (skills, attributes, difficulty, etc.) (unless you change them, of course), and you earn EXP for each time an enduring task is completed.

Adventurer's Tip #5

Every adventurer has a different method for organizing the tasks in their quest log. Here are some things to try:

  • To easily mark a task as important, add an # or an ! to the beginning of its title. It will show up at the top of whatever section it’s in.
  • Create quests to organize projects that require many tasks. You can track your progress, and you’ll be rewarded for 100% completion!
  • Working on something BIG? Create an odyssey! Odysseys can contain multiple quests.
