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! Work hard to fight against the dragon's dark influence and dispel his hold on you!","questVice1Boss":"Vice's Shade","questVice1DropVice2Quest":"Vice Part 2 (Scroll)","questVice2Text":"Vice, Part 2: Find the Lair of the Wyrm","questVice2Notes":"With Vice's influence over you dispelled, you feel a surge of strength you didn't know you had return to you. 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.

Need some tips on how to begin? Here's a straightforward guide!
Habitica is nothing without real-world goals, so enter a few tasks. You can add more later as you think of them!
Enter tasks you do once or rarely in the To-Dos column, one at a time. You can click the pencil to edit them and add checklists, due dates, and more!
Enter activities you need to do daily or on a particular day of the week in the Dailies column. Click the item's pencil icon to 'edit' the day(s) of the week it will be due. You can also make it due on a repeating basis, for example, every 3 days.
Enter habits you want to establish in the Habits column. You can edit the Habit to change it to just a good habit or a bad habit .
In addition to the in-game Rewards offered, add activities or treats which you want to use as a motivation to the Rewards column. It's important to give yourself a break or allow some indulgence in moderation!
If you need inspiration for which tasks to add, you can look at the wiki's pages on Sample Habits, Sample Dailies, Sample To-Dos, and Sample Rewards.
Now, start tackling your goals from the list! As you complete tasks and check them off in Habitica, you will gain Experience, which helps you level up, and Gold, which allows you to purchase Rewards. If you fall into bad habits or miss your Dailies, you will lose Health. In that way, the Habitica Experience and Health bars serve as a fun indicator of your progress toward your goals. You'll start seeing your real life improve as your character advances in the game.
Once you're familiar with the basics, you can get even more out of Habitica with these nifty features:
Good luck with your tasks!
