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!

What do these badges look like?

Well they're shiny of course and badge-y and they look like these:

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.

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.


Who gives out the points? Can I use them for anything else and can they be obtained by anything other than these Challenges? -Inpsired by DreamingForever
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!

Welcome to Night Vale Challenge


@Lumi, @Feltrix, @RavenLord, @Gravity, @AdventurerDaniel, @AnyoneElseWhoWantsIn (Remember, it's open to all)


Episode 1 has been concluded, and we'll be moving on now to episode 2 (that's how counting works). In episode 1, we lacked a lot of interaction or mention with other characters. There was some, but for the most part I didn't feel like the Night Vale cast was apparent enough.

So your challenge is to mention any Night Vale characters. It could be Carlos, Old Woman Josie, or even Kevin. Develop them, and make them important in the post.

For every mention of a character from WTNV, you will earn two points. This can be completed up to two times.

Go wild with it!

*queens can totally be guys


No, you won't understand this joke. Stop trying.

Challenged Adventurer(s): @DragonNoir, @Nikayla, @Kelpies, @Lumi, @LadyLizzLovelace, @KaiRyu, @Sheyren, @Tortwag
Storybook: Rogue
The Challenge: Meet the heroes!

Our story finally begins! And, like with any story, we need to get to introduce our heroes and learn a little bit about them! You can do this by showing their reactions when a portal magically appears in front them - what are their feelings about it and what could possibly motivate them to jump through it? If you have two characters, you can only complete this challenge for one of them.
Completion Time: 10 Posts
Credits Awarded: One credit if you post your first post, another credit if you include your character's thoughts about the rift in space, and a third credit if your post is over 250 words!
"it was the truth. how else would you explain it?"
"magic."

"magic doesn't exist."
"it does. it's as real as you and me."

After a long vacation to the Haunted Forest - trust me, it's where all stressed adventurers go to relax - I, Captain Rydia, have returned to find my desk had been replaced with a mound of paperwork.

Fortunately, the top sheet is the list of badges I need to give out so without further ado...

For keeping the civilians safe while I was away and bravely standing up to the traitors who tried to break into my candy supply, I award @Sheyren with this silver shield and the new rank of warrior!

It seems two new adventurers have found their way to our castle while I was gone so welcome and in you come, out of the rain and away from the scary things. I've got a few paper shields around here somewhere, which I'm sure will keep you safe enough! It's great to have two fine adventurers like yourselves in our hall! @Sonder @PrincessInk

One last badge before I set out again and this one goes to @Lael who has trained hard and deserves to be granted this apprenticeship for solving the mystery of who drank the last of the apple juice and didn't replace the carton. We can all rest easy knowing Lael is on the case!

In other news, 5 credits have been granted to TheSilverFox and 7 credits to Sheyren bringing them both that much closer to their next badges!

Captain's Challenge: Hot! Hot Hot Hot!
As Issued by First Mate Lumi


If you're in the northern hemisphere--but not TOO north; but always too south--always toooooooo south--then you no-doubt feeeeeeel the heat. *fans self*

I know I do.

This month's Captain's Challenge will give you an opportunity to capitalize on your feelings for heat, as well as gain up to nine points under your belt--but you'll have to work for them. You see, the word hot and any word related to it (or phrase, metaphor, simile depicting the heat of something, even figuratively) is sure to get someone sweltering--and that's your job. Whether you're describing the weather, a person, your character's unyielding rage--whatever--you get a point for that storybook post. Boom.

Q: But Lumi, you said it was nine points!

Yes I did, yes I did. You may repeat this challenge for one point in nine separate Storybook posts total, meaning if you're lower on the badge roster, that's nearly two whole badges!

So, to recap:

1 post + heat one way or another = 1pt.
9 posts + heat one way or another = 9pts.

And anything in between. Please post your records in this thread so we may keep up with them!

Arrrrgh! And all that jazz!

Th-th-those active in April and May~

(In Sea of Seven I used hot to describe both the weather and Alvaro, so I don't know if that counts for two points)

Claiming one point for Lumi's Captain's Challenge in the V storybook, as I described a golden fire and used the word burning among others :3

Side Note: This challenge feels so weird, since I'm located in the southern hemisphere. It's been cold and rainy for weeks, and is anything but hot! Reading the Sea of Seven storybook posts is messing with my seasonal awareness XD

Work together as much as possible, but as long as a storybook shows up representing Callisto, Triste, and/or Nevoaft, all team participants will receive the points regardless of how invested they are in the storybook.
