Hello good people of Storybook town!

Today I come to you with some very exciting news - we have added 12 Storybook badges for you to earn!

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!

The Challenge: It's February, which means exams ought to be over for most of you! While that doesn't mean your teachers will give you any less homework, I do expect you at least to try writing something. You already know that you need your character to address the letter either before or after returning from work, so the "what" is at least covered. Even so, DM me at any time if you feel you need help! We just need to get through the exposition if we're to find our tempo.

Completion Time: I asked for the end of last year to be a deadline, but for understandable reasons, that didn't happen. The horrible month that is January has finally passed, so I trust you are in a better spot to finish your post now! This challenge expires basically in March. Please don't make me reissue it yet again. XD

Credits Awarded: "2 per person per post, and 2 more if your character manages to go about their everyday affairs inconspicuously, even after receiving Direlight's letter. For my characters, this applies to doing the same after sending the letters instead." ← Still that.
But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
- Paul the Apostle

Spring has returned! Winter is over, and BrumalHunter is no more!

Captain's Challenge: No, You Cannot Be My Valentine
As Issued by Navigator Hunter


Oh, were some of you looking forward to a Captain's Challenge about love? Were you disappointed when February basically passed without one? That disappointment is what many people feel on February 14th, so your crew decided to emulate that.

For what remains of this month and then a decent part of the next, your challenge will be to have your character attempt a romantic advance and be rejected. Through your character's misfortune, you will then have earned three credits! Of course, we all know heartache doesn't simply last for only the moment of rejection: it persists. If your character experiences any kind of lingering unhappiness at the rejection, you will earn two more credits. How wonderful!

Of course, there are also those who realise there is more to life than romance! if your character instead accepts the rejection with grace and decides to be content with their unromantic fate, they will earn you two credits as well! However, these two reactions are distinct, and while the one may indeed follow the other in real life, they are mutually exclusive for the purpose of this challenge.

Alternatively, your character may choose to be indifferent to the custom. If they don't give a flying fig about the meaning behind Valentine's Day (note how the strategic wording doesn't necessitate the existence of the day in your character's universe), or if they're simply oblivious, you may depict them reacting neutrally to people's expectations and earn... a single credit! I do hope you weren't expecting more than that for what amounts to a laughably easy task.

Finally, there are those souls who choose to do away with societal expectations and rather celebrate their independence. In this case, spending some time loving themselves will earn you two credits, and if they spend time (platonically) loving their friends too, you will earn another two credits! We must seek happiness in ourselves before we seek it in others, after all.

Now, for the tally! Each of these three different scenarios are interesting to explore, so you may perform each separately! If you write at least three posts respectively containing the following, you will earn, for a maximum of ten credits:
3 credits for being rejected and 2 credits for dealing with it
1 credit for shrugging at the prospect of love
2 credits for cherising yourself and 2 credits for cherishing your friends

Optional challenges may be completed in separate posts, but their prerequisite will earn you credits only once. And if your character is happily in love or successful in a romantic advance... good for them! Their love should be reward enough, so you need no credits as consolation. Marvelous disappointment abounds either way!

WWE: Wraithaxe Wizard Entertainment


@AstralHunter, @Chaser, @Europa, @TinkerTwaggy

The Challenge: Attention, wizards! The time has come to initiate your life at Wraithaxe! We're starting by exploring the nearby city of Rudigall, where the first posting round begins. By the end of it, we'll hope to have secured a new sponsor!

Wraithaxe is a bumbling blight on the city of Rudigall. This farming city is honest and hardworking; we're here to make everything worse. One extra credit is available in your post to have your character intentionally or inadvertently worsen any object or situation in town. Be it the town monument, a neighborly dispute, or a business deal, screw something up in a way only your character can!

The Deadline: This is the first posting round, so it may be flexible. The challenge officially lasts three weeks from this post to March 19th.

Credits Available There are two credits available for making the post, and one for making Rudigall suffer. Get set to erupt!
The hardest part of writing science fiction is knowing actual science. The same applies for me and realistic fiction.

I'd like to claim 2 credits for cherishing your friends, and 1 credit for shrugging at the prospect of love in my post for The Guild! Not much valentine in it, but it was fine to pour as much of the challenge into this as possible XD

And why did I spend my life savings on sunglasses for a whale?
I shall find the answer... to these questions."

The Outlands: What Life Was Like Before
A possibility of 2 points!
    1. Write your scheduled post and make it over 700 words!
    2. Develop your character's past a little more. Bring up a memory. Mention an old friend, a family memeber. Take us deeper into their past hurts. What life was like before the Outlands, and before they were on the run from their lives. It can be something as small as a brief mention or something as big as a monologue or a flashback. It's up to you how you fit it in! Keep in mind there's only one more story arc left, so if you want to move towards wrapping up some loose ends, or there's anything you want to make sure you fit in, now's a good time.

Completion Time: 'Til this challenge inevitably expires in 30 something days ;)

Good luck, Outlanders!

The Challenge: We've known for a while what the posting order is, but let's make it official! Our characters have to move into their apartments, with Rumi, Dallie, Lyle, and Caduciel respectively arriving at the complex. Each apartment has its own bedroom, bathroom (Skyreach has an impressive sanitation and water system), study, small kitchen, and small living area. Nothing will stop your character from making their place comfortable, but if the others have already moved in, they should say hi! Rumi will collect the keys from the landlady, but everyone else will have to go see her to enter their apartments. Speaking of those, there are four on the ground floor and two on the second - it's first come first serve!

Completion Time: Hopefully only a few weeks, since Tort has already started with his post, but a month ought to suffice. I'm free for the next week and a half, so I can write a post once it's my turn!

Credits Awarded: Three credits are available: one for your character moving in, one for interacting with the complex and/or the other tenants, and then one more for applying changes to the unit to suit your character's preferences and needs.


PS: The storybook is still open, so if anybody wants to join, you're more than welcome to!

The simple truth is that authors like making people squirm. If this weren't the case, all novels would be filled completely with cute bunnies having birthday parties.
