Current stats: Level 1 - 0 XP


I enjoy pushups as an exercise, but I've never been consistent about doing them. So, I'm working on a system to help me enjoy doing them and make some tangible progress by making it more fun.

Rules:

  1. Roll for pushup reps once per hour while at your desk
  2. Each pushup counts for 1 XP

Below is the roll/leveling chart for Pushups and Dragons.


| Level |  XP | Modifier |      Dice |
|-------+-----+----------+-----------+
|     1 |   0 |        0 |       1d4 |
|     2 |  50 |       +1 |       1d4 |
|     3 | 150 |       +1 |       2d4 |
|     4 | 300 |       +2 | 1d4 + 1d6 |
|     5 | 500 |       +3 |       2d6 |
|     6 | 750 |       +5 |      1d12 |

I'm starting at 0, so I will extend the chart once I reach level 6. I have no idea of these levels are good, bad, too easy, too hard, or if this whole thing makes any sense at all. We'll see!

Interesting factoids:

  • The modifier follows the Fibonacci sequence (for now)
  • The minimum number of reps equals the level (for now)
