Oooh shiny! How do I get one?
Spoiler! :
If you want a badge, you need to be given a storybook challenge which you can then complete to earn a number of adventurer credits. These challenges will be issued by storybook owners or participants to revive or encourage movement in a storybook. There will also be a Captain's Challenge every month which can be completed for any storybook and is open to all.

For example, I might challenge someone in my storybook to have their character reveal a secret to character x within three posts. I would do this by posting in this thread and tagging the challenged adventurer. They would then gain 1-3 credits upon successful completion.


Who can issue a challenge?
Spoiler! :
Anyone who is the storybook owner or has a Novice rank or higher and is participating in the storybook may issue a challenge.


What must a challenge require?
Spoiler! :
To be a valid challenge it needs to require the challenged adventurer to make at least one additional post in the storybook and it can offer no more than 6 adventurer credits as a reward. Occasionally there will be official challenges issued which will allow more credits to be earned for a single challenge.


I've got enough adventurer credits for a badge... how do I claim it?
Spoiler! :
Simply make a post in this thread and a moderator will be along to verify your credits and award you with the badge.


Can I earn points from my own challenges?
Spoiler! :
Well I don't see why not. You're also putting in the effort to make a post and do the extra challenges, right? Now, if you're making easy challenges just to earn points... well *gives a stern look*


Who gives out the points? Can I use them for anything else and can they be obtained by anything other than these Challenges?
Spoiler! :
The Storybook Crew gives out the points once either you say in this thread that you've finished a challenge or we see that you have. And, these points are just for this challenge! They're made up and the only other way the SB Crew will award points will be through Captain's Challenges, Storybook Workshops, or other events!

Captain's Challenge: A Closer Look
As Issued by Pirate Mage

Image

In the spirit of Review Month, the goal of this month's Captain's Challenge is take a closer look at something in a storybook - whether it's a plan, a letter, a person or something else! All you have to do to claim a credit for this challenge is to have a character (whether they're yours, someone else's or a NPC) in a post observe something a little more closely than usual.

Here's the breakdown of the points for this challenge:

1. You can claim one point for this challenge for fulfilling the above requirements in a single post. You can do this part of this challenge up to three times, and not necessarily in different storybooks - if you happen to post in a storybook multiple times over the course of the challenge's run, you can claim points for each post you make up until your total credit count is three points.

2. You can claim one point if the person doing the observing notices something that's bad for your character. It can be your character seeing that something's not going the way it should, or someone picking up on your character's mistakes. As long as it fits the basic requirement, you can claim a point!

You can complete this part of the challenge for up to a total of of two points, following the same rules of the previous part.

3. And, since it is Review Month right now, you can get a bonus point if a character takes a closer look at some kind of literary work - letters, stories, poems and notes are all fair game, as well as anything else that falls under that category.

Overall, you can get up to six points.

Happy reviewing, pirates, and good luck on this challenge!

Spoiler! :


This challenge expires on October 14th.
stop trying.
take long walks. look at scenery. doze off at noon.
don’t even think about flying.
and then, pretty soon,
you’ll be flying again.

Captain's Challenge: Boo!
As Issued by Pirate Mage

Image


October is not usually a month of giving, but the pirates of YWS have decided to give you a Halloween gift: an appropriately spooky Captain's Challenge.

As the gif suggests, it's time to make your posts spooky. There's many ways to make a story creepy and horrific, but there's something especially spooky about the classic things that go bump in the night.

You can get one point for having any of the following list in your storybook post - even if it's just a mention of the monster in question. In total, you can claim up to six points for completing the challenge.

Here's the monsters of the month:

1. Vampire
2. Werewolf
3. Ghost
4. Skeleton
5. Witch
6. Mummy

You can have all six monsters in your posts, or just use the same ones throughout a series of different posts.

(This challenge also applies to Night of the Living Tagbook.)

don’t even think about flying.
and then, pretty soon,
you’ll be flying again.

Credits are again being awarded! Not as many as last time, but plenty nevertheless. ^_^

I'm again awarding credits for New Horizon, but I'll just specify who got what, as that makes things a little clearer for those involved.
• Tort gets a credit for Emma meeting more than three people (she's met the most out of anyone else in the SB, actually!), for thinking about her reason for entering the tournament, for unexpectedly being late and walking more than an hour to buy a suit, and for writing more than 750 words. Additionally, he gets a credit for Emma observing many things closely, as well as for her and Amarela respectively observing how she was late and didn't have to buy a suit.
• I get a credit for Jake meeting Bryne, Myata (a proxy for Vadim), and Heitor, as well as for writing more than 750 words (eight times more, to be more specific XD). The other three aspects of the challenge were already completed in Connor's post, so there was no point in repeating that. I also get a credit for Jake closely observing Bryne, haha, as well as for him realising he can't flirt as much as he used to now that he's in a relationship.
• Scarlett gets a credit for Ezra telling Bryne why he picked him to participate, for having Ra-Ra bother many people with her uninhibited psychic communication, and for writing more than 750 words. Additionally, she gets a credit for Bryne observing how people aren't likely to be happy with Ra-Ra giving them headaches (or alternatively for Ezra subtly noting that Bryne might not be happy with liking Jake, who already has a boyfriend).
• Fox gets a credit for Nathan thinking about why Ezra picked him to participate and for writing more than 750 words. He also gets a credit for reflecting on Peony's likelihood of being more comfortable in Mandarin and for her being critical of his fashion sense.

Spoiler! :
@AstralHunter has earned two credits for Pokémon: New Horizon, and two more for the September CC!
=4

@Liberty has earned two credits for the October CC!

@ScarlettFire has earned three credits for Pokémon: New Horizon, and another for the September CC!

Captain's Challenge Part I: Spooky Scary...January?
As Issued by Pirate Jaybird


Image


January has never been considered a spooky part of the year, but we'd like to start this year - and this decade - off on a chilling foot. To complete this challenge, you need to make your post as eerie as you possibly can.

Here's the breakdown of the points for this challenge:

1. You can claim one point for having a creepy setting in your post. It can be an empty room, an abandoned graveyard, a lonely house in the middle of the night, or whatever else you can think of. You can claim points from the setting category up to two times. That's two points.

2. You can claim one point for a having a creepy scene in your post. Try incorporating other senses besides sight for this part. Some examples of this can be feeling something wet and realizing it's blood, smelling something burning when there's no fire, or hearing a noise in a seemingly empty place. Like the previous point, you can claim points from this category up to two times; you can get up to two points.

3. For this last category, you can get one point for including a creepy character in your post. They don't necessarily have to be creepy all the time, but something they say, do or imply needs to come off as worrying and frightening. Like the other two sections, you can get points from this category up to two times for a total of two points.

Though it would be great if you spread out your points across six different posts in six different storybooks, feel free to mix-and-match in your posts. You can have any of the categories in your posts. Just don't claim points from a category twice for one post, even if it fulfills the challenge in two different parts of the post.

Overall, you can get up to six points.

Happy writing, pirates, and good luck on this challenge!

This challenge expires on February 3rd, 2020.

and then, pretty soon,
you’ll be flying again.

Captain's Challenge Part II: So Many Emotions
As Issued by Navigator Hunter


You might have noticed the "Part I" in the CC above while reading, but thought it was in error. Evidently, this one proves otherwise!

The only error, really, was the significantly decreased activity in the Storybook Seas over the last couple of months. This regrettably includes even your most admirable leaders. Well, we were never pirates to neglect our treasures in the long-term! As such, we've decided to open this year with a wealth of credits waiting to be reaped. This CC isn't the month's first... but neither is it the month's last... :wink:

To business! If you are filled with many emotions upon reading this, then I am pleased. If not, eh, then at least your characters should be. Your second challenge for this month is to have said characters display the full range of basic emotions: joy, sorrow, anger, and fear. However, I have the sneaking suspicion I've issued a challenge like this before, so I'll add a twist — you only earn credits once you've done all four.

There are eight credits to be earned in total, since my generosity knows no bounds and I've elected to allow the challenge to be completed twice. All you need to do to earn your four credits is showcase four clear instances of each of the aforementioned emotions. There is no requirement for the number of posts or emotional characters, so you can do it in as many or as few as you like. If you want to earn the second set of four credits, though, you need to write four different instances.

This challenge is a bit trickier than they usually are, but with more than one CC available this month, there is no shortage of easy-to-earn credits. This particular CC complements the others well in any case; if you're clever, you can maximise your earnings per post.

Captain's Challenge - Part III: Magic? What Magic?
As Issued by Pirate ScarlettFire


You’re definitely not seeing triple! There’s three parts to the Captain’s Challenge this month!

The beginning of the year is a busy time for a lot of people, and January is no different. People can be caught up in all sorts of things and so can fantasy realms! So this part of the CC is all about magic and fantasy. High fantasy settings, in fact! So knuckle down and see what the dragon’s dragged in.

There are two parts to this challenge worth two points each with a potential bonus point available (that's a total of five points!):

1. Have your character notice something fantasy-esque about their surroundings and either comment on said thing or think about. Perhaps it's an odd object or just something that sends a shiver down their spine. Whatever you think works! This can be claimed twice. That's two points!

2. Have your character notice and come into contact with a being other than a human. They might even be weird, or perhaps kinda...creepy... (Bonus point if your character isn't human!) This can be claimed twice but the bonus only once for a total of three points.

Happy posting, kiddos!

Time to claim some credits!

-> One credit for my In the Wake of A Calamity CP.
-> Two credits for Part 1 of the Captain's Challenge! My post in The Twin Sisters has a creepy setting (a graveyard) and a person doing something creepy (a character waiting in the shadows of a tree in the graveyard).
-> One credit for Part 3 of the Captain's Challenge! My post in Infinity War has my character interact with someone who isn't human (an otter). I'd also like to claim the bonus point; Kartiel is a god, though he's currently stuck in a human body.
stop trying.
take long walks. look at scenery. doze off at noon.
don’t even think about flying.
and then, pretty soon,
you’ll be flying again.
