The Challenge itself is a derivative of the "D&D 30 Day Challenge." The topics listed in that Challenge are of course highly focused on Dungeons & Dragons subjects, specifically the Third Edition of that game. As such, I have gone through and rewritten the "rules" or list of topics. As I progressed through the Challenge, certain topics seemed like an ill-fit, either for Vampire as a whole (for example, an entire week on "type of enemies" didn't really fit the World of Darkness) or based on my own way of approaching the game (for example, I make characters based on each Chronicle, so I do not have "characters I want to play" or "will never play again"). The original version of the Challenge can be found here, while the first update is here. The final version is below.

Obviously, even this list missed huge parts of Classic Vampire, such as: Horror, Personal Horror, the Sabbat, other Sects, etc. The list above is just a the ideas that I followed, but others should pick those topics that inspire them.
So far, I know of two other bloggers who have taken up the challenge. Anthony Jennings of Read the Damn Book and Teylen's RPG Corner. If you are interested in taking up this incredibly fun, if slightly exhausting, Challenge please let me know! I'd love to follow you on your journey.
