This amazing game is completely free to download and play on PC.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, do yourself a favour and read on.
This will be our third race, with more than 250 STEEM given away in prizes so far.
From 31st August, I'm holding a 3 day race; and I'll be awarding 20 STEEM to the highest ranked character in each class.
There'll be an additional 20 STEEM awarded to the highest level character overall.
If two or more players have evenly leveled characters, the prize will be split evenly.
If a character has died, the level they achieved is irrelevant.
The higher you go, the more you have to lose.
If you're way out in front it may even be worth resting them and starting a backup character.

We need to track your progress publicly. See my account/characters here.
You'll want to create a new character.
Make sure you choose the red, "Hardcore" banner or your char will be softcore; which isn't suitable for grown ups and wins nothing.
Their name should start with "SHR_"
Att: Rule Change;
Characters must also be Solo Self Found.
It's a tick-box in the character selection area.
It prevents a character from interacting with the marketplace, so no buying and selling with other players.
You won't be alone though. There are plenty of things waiting for you down in the mine.
If your character dies, that's obviously a setback, but you can start again with somebody new.
It may seem that others have an unassailable lead, but they can die too.
It's quite possible that a mad dash for the finish line may be the undoing of one or many of your competitors.

Glorious deaths are bittersweet and better shared.
I've been there. I miss them too.
Post your intention to compete, using #poecomp as the first tag.
Tell us about yourself. Are you a grizzled veteran, or an eager newcomer?
Will you be dealing physical damage up close and personal, or raising an army of the dead to fight on your behalf?
Will you lay traps, mines and totems to outwit the enemy, or stick 'em with poisoned arrows from a distance?
Are you going to charge headlong into each level, or take it slow and stay alive?
Will you check the other accounts, and choose an under-represented character, or forge on with your favourite?
I'm expecting some real tragic deaths in the deepest recesses of the game's first ever endless dungeon.
