They say there lies a terrible evil in the caverns of Mt. Habitica. A monster whose presence twists the wills of the strong heroes of the land, turning them towards bad habits and laziness! The beast is a grand dragon of immense power and comprised of the shadows themselves: Vice, the treacherous Shadow Wyrm. Brave Habiteers, stand up and defeat this foul beast once and for all, but only if you believe you can stand against its immense power.
How can you expect to fight the beast if it already has control over you? Don't fall victim to laziness and vice!

Confident in yourselves and your ability to withstand the wyrm's influence, your party makes its way to Mt. Habitica. You approach the entrance to the mountain's caverns and pause. Swells of shadows, almost like fog, wisp out from the opening. It is near impossible to see anything in front of you. The light from your lanterns seem to end abruptly where the shadows begin. It is said that only magical light can pierce the dragon's infernal haze. If you can find enough light crystals, you could make your way to the dragon.","questVice2CollectLightCrystal":"Light Crystals","questVice2DropVice3Quest":"Vice Part 3 (Scroll)","questVice3Text":"Vice, Part 3: Vice Awakens","questVice3Notes":"After much effort, your party has discovered Vice's lair.

Habitica is a video game to help you improve real life habits. It "gamifies" your life by turning all your tasks (habits, dailies, and to-dos) into little monsters you have to conquer. The better you are at this, the more you progress in the game. If you slip up in life, your character starts backsliding in the game.
Get Sweet Gear. Improve your habits to build up your avatar. Show off the sweet gear you've earned!
Find Random Prizes. For some, it's the gamble that motivates them: a system called "stochastic rewards." Habitica accommodates all reinforcement and punishment styles: positive, negative, predictable, and random.
While you can play Habitica solo, the lights really turn on when you start collaborating, competing, and holding each other accountable. The most effective part of any self-improvement program is social accountability, and what better an environment for accountability and competition than a video game?
Fight Bosses. What's a Role Playing Game without battles? Fight bosses with your party. Bosses are "super accountability mode" - a day you miss the gym is a day the boss hurts everyone.
The iPhone & Android apps let you take care of business on the go. We realize that logging into the website to click buttons can be a drag.

The problem with most productivity apps on the market is that they provide no incentive to continue using them. Habitica fixes this by making habit building fun! By rewarding you for your successes and penalizing you for slip-ups, Habitica provides external motivation for completing your day-to-day activities.
Whenever you reinforce a positive habit, complete a daily task, or take care of an old to-do, Habitica immediately rewards you with experience points and gold. As you gain experience, you can level up, increasing your stats and unlocking more features, like classes and pets. Gold can be spent on in-game items that change your experience or personalized rewards you've created for motivation. When even the smallest successes provide you with an immediate reward, you're less likely to procrastinate.
Whenever you indulge in a bad habit or fail to complete one of your daily tasks, you lose health. If your health drops too low, you lose some of the progress you've made. By providing immediate consequences, Habitica can help break bad habits and procrastination cycles before they cause real-world problems.
With an active community, Habitica provides the accountability you need to stay on task. With the party system, you can bring in a group of your closest friends to cheer you on. The guild system allows you to find people with similar interests or obstacles, so you can share your goals and swap tips on how to tackle your problems. In Habitica, the community means that you have both the support and the accountability you need to succeed.
