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!

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.
-Shinji Moon


I am the property of Rydia, please return me to her ship.

Reissuing the following challenge!

Challenged Adventurer(s): @Synnoev, @Strident, @Steggy, @Persistence, @saentiel, @LadyLizz, @Sheytato (omitting sound and I since we already posted for this round)
Storybook: Cul-De-Sac
The Challenge: It's a Friday morning in mid September: move-in day for the students! The neighbors have taken the day off of work so that they can make sure, as discreetly as possible, that everything goes wrong.

b) In some way, have your character express either regret or excitement for deciding to move in to 823.
c) Have your character open up about their thoughts about one of the neighbors to another student.

For the Neighbors

a) Spy on or stalk one student in particular. It's up to you whether or not your character gets caught.
b) Use your character's skills in haunting to frighten the students in some way while they're moving in.
c) Use all of the following words or their derivatives in your post: "blood," "shadow," and "hearth."

Completion Time: 1 month; 1 post
Credits Awarded: You'll get a single credit just for posting, and another credit for each of the three alpha-challenges (the a b c ones) pertaining to your type of character! So that's four possible points up for grabs.
Romans 12:2:
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but
be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

During festive seasons, the jostling for positions was kept to the minimum as Gym Leaders and Elite Members sought to spend their free time enjoying the holidays. Steggy overtook Wolfical again, but little else happened inside the League Building.

As for our challengers, soundofmind defeater her fourth Gym Leader, ScarlettFire and FalconryGal9086 both defeated their third, and Tortwag defeated his first! Regrettably, this won't mean much next month. Let's find out why!


Yes, that's right: it's time for the announcement! Once February comes around, the League will accept new blood to revitalise its ranks. Challengers who haven't advanced in their journey for a while will be invited to join the League, which will regrettably force us to retire some of our pre-existing Gym Leaders. Moreover, we shall be required to nullify the value of Badges handed out by these Gym Leaders, so some the remaining challengers will experience a massive setback, for which we sincerely apologise.

Below you will find the preliminary list of League Members if nothing changes. Please inspect it, and if you observe that you are to receive an invitation, please consider the type you wish to reserve for your team.

Captain's Challenge: Be Cultured
As Issued by First Mate Lumi


This month celebrates the African-American Heritage in the states, and the crew wanted to get in on the celebration! So, to spearhead this notion, we're going to lay some love on your lore--your story's own heritage.

This month's challenge is rather simple, really, and requires no exquisite explanation! I'll mark it up for you here: Your challenge is to

1. Have your character(s) reflect on a moment in history that defined their culture. (2 pts)
2. Dedicate a decent portion of your post to a reflection of your character's ancestors. (2 pts)
3. Imagine how another character of a different race, creed, or even species may feel due to a situation in the story. (2 pts)

All may be completed individually with no tie to the other and still garner you points, and you may cash in different ones at different times. That said, the max points for this challenge is six (6) points. Enjoy your February!
I am a forest fire and an ocean, and I will burn you just as much
as I will drown everything you have inside.
