Congratulations to each and everyone who participated!!! It was an overwhelmingly positive response. More than 50 players participated in the weeklong event. Those are the ones we know about since they sent in the information about their character.
Folks had fun, enjoyed the challenge, learned things they did not know and across the board expressed gratitude for this exercise. Challenged at various points and levels, from getting out of rogue encampment in act 1 to facing their limits in hell...not to speak of finding the time to participate at all, many discovered that yes, they could do it, or, wow, how hard it can be, alone and without a group.
Below some of the comments we received along with the character stats. Thanks, guys and gals, for those too.
The Quest was for killing the monsters of the Den - almost
At least a start. It is very fun and interesting!

Thanks for the assignment, it was fun! See you tomorrow morning in the safari.

Wow...I couldn't make it past Duriel, had a level 21 barb which started as
a jav barb and...anyway...that was a learning
experience. The intensity of
the deadline and the need to go for it at all costs was a real eye opener.
Grant A., New Jersey
it was fun
Kevin M., Florida
This has been a great exercise. I
had to study my characters attributes as I planned out my life to see how
play him in this setting. It was like taking rebirth to start the game.
Very cool training.
Thank you for the Challenge!
Marc S., Calfornia
That was fun!
Brendan S., Canada
Playing untwinked is lovely, strong sensations of the first times i played, having to get every important waypoint, no assistance at all, good.
Eric F., Spain
Thanks for the thoughts and the challenge
If I had more time I would have gotten further. I need more hours in the day, and more days in the week. :)

Are you giving booby prizes?
Pat McD., California
I have had more fun with this character than any
I have played so far, thanx for the challenge.
Tanra, New Mexico
Dressed as a Barbarian in a pool of an ungodly amount of blood in the "normal" (hah!) realm. 1st time I ever tried Barb.
I welcome prizes for the lowest level if that is also an award category.
Fondly, Respectfully, Remorsefully,
Kathleen D., New Mexico
I enjoyed the challenge.
Don A., Maryland
This was a very useful exercise. Thank you for setting it up.
Tamara M., New Jersey
I had a lot of fun building
this character, and i enjoyed the added difficulty of no-items-or-backup
while the race was on.
I hope to see you in gametime soon.
I learned a lot and would like to have spent more time on the
exercise. It was fun! Thanks for the opportunity.
