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? -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, good citizens of the Storybook Region, to your first League update since... actually, we aren't sure since when the local syndicate had been occupying our broadcasting station. Welcome nevertheless!

Spoiler! :
Champion: AstralHunter - ???

Elite Four 4: TheSilverFox - Water
Elite Four 3: Rydia - Fire
Elite Four 2: Dino - Dragon
Elite Four 1: Lumi - Fairy

Gym Leader 8: Wolfical - Dark
Gym Leader 7: Omnom - Grass
Gym Leader 6: LordZeus - Electric
Gym Leader 5: saentiel - Psychic
Gym Leader 4: XxXTheSwordsmanXxX - Steel
Gym Leader 3: Persistence - Fighting
Gym Leader 2: Gravity - Ground
Gym Leader 1: TheMaeuticMesmerist - Poison

Challengers: Sheyren: (8 Badges; 4 Elite)
Lael: (4 Badges)
ScarlettFire: (1 Badge)

As you can see, things were getting interesting the last time we updated the League roster. The members of the Elite Four jostled amongst each other and high-ranking Gym Leaders for higher positions, and our valiant challenger was preparing to face the League Champion, several other challengers following his lead and challenging the appropriate Gym Leaders themselves! Here are the changes that have since been brought about.

Spoiler! :
Champion: BrumalHunter - ???

Elite Four 4: Lumi - Fairy
Elite Four 3: TheSilverFox - Water
Elite Four 2: Wolfical - Dark
Elite Four 1: Dino - Rock

Gym Leader 8: Rydia - Fire
Gym Leader 7: saentiel - Psychic
Gym Leader 6: Omnom - Grass
Gym Leader 5: LordZeus - Electric
Gym Leader 4: XxXTheSwordsmanXxX - Steel
Gym Leader 3: Persistence - Fighting
Gym Leader 2: Gravity - Ground
Gym Leader 1: TheMaeuticMesmerist - Poison

Challengers: Sheytato (8 Badges; 4 Elite)
Lael (5 Badges)
soundofmind (3 Badges)
Feltrix (3 Badges)
ScarlettFire (1 Badge)
FalconerGal9086 (0 Badges)

Interesting changes indeed! Although it seemed for a moment that our challenger Sheytato would beat the resident Champion - and he did, strictly speaking - he forgot that if Explode or Self-Destruct causes both opponents' final Pokémon to faint, the tie favours the residing League Member. BrumalHunter therefore remains League Champion, but for how long?

In terms of the Elite Four, Lumi displayed his Fairy prowess and rose all the way to the top! Close behind him is the noble TheSilverFox, who battles to reclaim his place. Wolfical has once again reclaimed her E4 status, but E4 Rydia takes a fall and becomes a Gym Leader as a result. E4 Dino clings to her spot, but decided the Dragon type wasn't for her anymore and appropriately switched to Rock! We'll see how this change of teams will pan out.

Meanwhile, among the Gym Leaders, Psychic saentiel is quickly closing the gap between the quarrelling E4s. The rest of the Gym Leaders remain static in their positions, but several new challengers have appeared! Lael has earned another badge, while newcomers soundofmind and Feltrix have earned their first three! ScarlettFire seems content with one badge - discussions are underway for her to replace TheMaeuticMesmerist as first Gym Leader. (We'll know her answer by the time the next update is ready - if she doesn't decide to continue challenging the League by earning another badge, she will join it instead.) Rumour has it that Trainer FalconryGal9086 wants to join the League as a Flying specialist, but we shall see whether she can prove her worth.

Stay tuned to see what happens next! We can assure the broadcasting station is firmly back under our control, so you won't have to wait another six months or more for your news.
But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

AstralHunter will be back eventually...

Challenged Adventurer(s):

@Sheytato @Lael @AllisontheWriter @Chaser @Omnom @XxXTheSwordsmanXxX @soundofmind

Storybook:

Overwatch: The Nightwatch

"Okay, we're gonna split up into teams. Welcome to your new headquarters, what little we have right now. But, that's fine, because we're gonna rebuild this place into a command worthy of Nightwatch's name.

"Our first objective is to get power up and running to this library, enough to get a establish a connection with Athena. There's an old Talon outpost 10 miles south of here, and I'll bet it has the equipment we need. Joao (@Omnom) and Midori (@AllisontheWriter), your job is to find a working ion reactor core and retrieve it. Expect resistance.

"The Omnium factory on the coast here is jamming our signals. This will be a major problem trying to establish any communication in this region until we take out their communication tower. Mask (@Sheytato), Sasha (@Lael), and Gwen (@XxXTheSwordsmanXxX), this will be your task. There will be heavy defenses there, so your best bet is to go in through stealth. Fight only if you need to, and call upon either Geryon or myself for assistance. Geryon can remotely provide a pick-up and I can provide some back-up, but only if necessary.

"Lastly, we need to set up an outpost and relief force to the locals. We need them on our side, and this is what Overwatch was all about. Geryon (@Chaser) and Mickey (@soundofmind), you'll have to reach out to the local... government here, and establish a line of communication with them. A gang is a more apt term for them, and communications might go south. If so, use force. Show them they are no longer in power here, and show the people that there is hope in the world once again.

"Brigitte out."

Credits Awarded: 2 points per post, for a maximum of six, per person.

December has been quiet, as expected, but the time has come to award credits!

I take this moment to claim shamelessly two credits for my introductory post in Shattered Moons.

Spoiler! :
@BrumalHunter has earned two credits for Shattered Moons!
=2

@Omnom has earned three credits for the December CC (#2)!
=3

@Rydia has earned a credit for Mana, and three credits for the December CC (#2)!
=4

@saentiel has earned three credits for Rei!
=3

@Sheytato has earned a credit for Mana, and six credits for the December CC (#1+#2)!
=7

@Tortwag has earned three credits for Rei!
=3


PS: I noticed I had accidentally granted saentiel three credits for completing the TMMM challenge, instead of @soundofmind, who had earned them. I'm so sorry about that! Taking this into account, soundofmind has earned her Disciple Badge.

The Storybook: Outliers

The Challenge: Rekindling the Fire

On the verge of death itself, our storybook is making a comeback! Since we're all probably pretty rusty with our characters, the goal of this challenge is to get us back into writing as them. There's two ways you can achieve this. The first is to write interactions between your character and at least one other. This character can be either an NPC or someone's character. Writing out conversations is a great way to remember what a person is like. Besides writing out some dialogue, highlighting your characters' abilities - or apparent lack of abilities - will help define them.

Completion Time: 14 posts

Credits Awarded: You can get one credit by including dialogue from at least one other character. You can get a second credit by including your character's abilities or lack of abilities. A third credit can be earned if your post is at least seven hundred words for a total of three credits.

Captain's Challenge: Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot...
As Issued by First Mate Lumi


Happy New Year, YWSers! With the brand-new year ahead of us, we'd like to see something new through the eyes of our characters in the storybook realm. If you've ever looked at someone and thought they seemed familiar...just...familiar...but not known exactly where you knew them from, you may have a head start on this challenge.

For January 2018, we want you to produce scenes where you sew seeds of future or past plots by introducing or passing a vague NPC who will mean something to the storybook's plot. Obviously this can't be multiplied inside the same storybook by the same person...but it can be done in others.

So we'll break it down like this! For every fateful encounter you have describing a forgotten or new acquaintance in a different storybook, you will receive two points, up to four storybooks for up to eight points total!

THOSE who've swam in the briny depths these last few months...
I am a forest fire and an ocean, and I will burn you just as much
as I will drown everything you have inside.

Badgelight Celebration


Twas a brisk morning in the bay of Sanctuary, and the Equipe du Livre had on their formal uniforms to share gifts and candy as their captains prepared for the main festivities. Once @Rydia and @Lumi had gathered all the necessary precious metals and stones (and some paper for good measure) they came from the Bay Lighthouse to the raucous applause of the citizens of the Storybooks Seas, some of whom had sailed from isles far, far away to reach this locale to see the grand granting of the badges of the new year.

Captain Rydia began calling folks up to gift them their beautiful badges and trophies.

Later, Lumi took to the podium. "Ladies and gentlemen, storybookers...Happy New Year!" He spread his arms wide and grinned as snow fell on them in light wafts. "Let this be a prosperous year of new and incredible badge races, challenge-making, and reward claim! Let's be as competitive as we ever were, and add to that! Let's become more of a family, and write more stories than have ever been told!"

There was soft applause in the cold air under soft mittens.

"And let all of us enjoy our time here to the fullest, every single one."


All badges have been awarded
up to the time of this post.
