Legendary Quests Banner

Here is my list of Legendary Quests!

Some people refer to these kinds of lists as their ‘bucket list’ but that’s too morbid for me and implies that I’m only going to attempt these things in my twilight years just before I ‘kick the bucket’!

Every 5 quests that I complete I get to ‘level up’. The more I level up the more legendary I am! In case you can’t tell I’m gamifying my life! Much like those computer games that allow you to ‘level up’ after some many experience points I’m turning my entire life into one giant game!
