When I saw this readathon, I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist participating! This was just too amazing for me to possibly even think about letting it pass me by! It beautifully mixes the two loves of my life: reading and gaming! This readathon was being hosted by Aentee at Read at Midnight and all of the amazing artwork was created by CW at Read, Think, Ponder! I just participated for fun, not to win the challenges, but here is everything I was able to accomplish reading from August 13th to September 10th!
I also chose in path of the mage, because in every single game I play I always end up picking the closest thing to a warlock/necromancer, so why would The Reading Quest be any different? I also accomplished a few of the Knight’s challenges, along with a few of the side quests! Overall, I’m super happy with what I was able to read, but I still want to do a mini wrap up of everything for you guys!
BASIC RUNDOWN OF ACCUMULATING POINTS:
Every participant starts with 10 EXP, 10 HP and at level 1!
Each book completed awards the player 10 EXP or 20 EXP if it’s by a marginalized author!
You are awarded 10 HP points for every 10 pages read!
For every class quest line you completely, you get an addition 50 EXP!
And your character levels up every 50 EXP!
