    Hi everyone... so you've all probably seen me posting a bunch today. Well, I was making the Dante' Divine Comedy Challenge! It's a challenge similar to the Valhalla challenge where staying PMO free for 14 days will advance you up a level. If you stay PMO free long enough, you can reach the final level and become a champion!

    The challenge is based off of Dante's Alighieri's epic poem, The Divine Comedy, in which the Roman poet Virgil leads Dante through the levels of Hell, Purgatory and Heaven. The levels players will be able to progress through are these:

    The rules are that everyone starts out in the Second Circle of Hell (Lust) and tries to advance to The Empyrean, or abode of God. Relapsing in the First Circle of Hell, Earth or the 1st-6th Terraces of Purgatory will automatically set a player back to the Second Circle of Hell. Relapsing in the Earthly Paradise or in any of the Spheres of Heaven will send the player back to the Seventh Terrace of Purgatory (the Lustful). Players in the Second Circle of Hell or below will go down a level every time they relapse.

    If your interested, please sign up. I will update the challenge thread every fourteen days and move people wherever they need to go. Just check the challenge thread to see where you are. You can find the thread here.

    This challenge works on the honor system, so it is your responsibility to tell me when you have relapsed. You can do that by posting in this thread.

    All players will start out in the Second Circle of Hell, even if they have more than fourteen days in their current streak. This makes the game a bit fairer and also easier for me, as I will only have to update every fourteen days. Players who sign up after the challenge begins will start out in the Second Circle of Hell.

    So if you are interested, please sign up!

    Don't forget to check out your progress on the challenge thread!

    Everyone's signed up so far.

    @DireWolf, yeah, it's amazing, though I never got to Paradiso. Didn't know Dan Brown wrote his own version, haha! Sounds like something he would do. The Divine Comedy is the perfect book for conspiracy stuff.

    I'm not really sure if I want to turn this reboot into a game, but you've put a lot of effort in this and I'll try it out. Count me in.

    Haha, I thought you would sign up, Dante's Shadow. And thanks! It was a lot of fun to make.

    I understand, but its really more of a challenge. Another tool (albeit a fun tool) to use to keep yourself on track. A little friendly competition might be helpful when you need a little extra push to resist your urges. Anyways, thanks seventyniner, you're signed up!

    ^^You both are signed up!

    I'M BEGINNING THE CHALLENGE RIGHT NOW! So keep clean, everyone! I've made a new counter in my sign so I can keep track of the days until the next update. I'm going to be out of town until Tuesday, so don't think I'm ignoring you when I don't respond to any PMs or posts in this thread.

    People who sign up to 3 days after an update will be able to enter the challenge immediately, otherwise they will have to wait until the next update.

    Don't forget to contact me when you relapse!

    Just wanted everyone signed up to know that the challenge started at midnight last night. I'm not actually going to be gone until Monday... sorry. My trip has been delayed for a while.

    You're in!

    Well if you don't relapse, it will take you 418 days... haha, you'll definitely be a superhero by then!

    Thanks for joining!

    Is it okay if we do our challenge on here instead of Valhalla? I signed up for reddit, but I couldn't get in the Valhalla challenge group or post. I blame my old computer.
