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. 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!

I've been wondering why nobody has claimed for the Captain's Challenge yet. Perhaps this was why! DX


Captain's Challenge: All You Need Is Love Music
As Issued by First Mate Tyler and Quartermaster Elinor


Music. Probably the most visceral of all the art forms. What writers make us feel with words, music does only with sound. We all have our favorite music, and so do your characters. Incoprorate this in to your next post somehow. Them listening to music! Have them exhibit some form of emotional connection to this music, or relive some memory with the lyrics cleverly splotted in! For this task, you will receive TEN POINTS! Oooh, I just trembled.

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!

The Challenge: The SB hasn't started yet, and though there are many good reasons for that, it's time to complete our character profiles! Buggie/Ventomology has already written four and will choose one after we're all done, and Saen and Tortwag have both finished theirs as well, so they've already earned credits for this challenge. For the rest of us, completion of our character profiles will earn us three credits. I'm open to questions in either Discord or the DT, but I shall answer in both, so as to accommodate everyone.

Completion Time: An extension has been granted! We'll have until the end of October to finish our character profiles. By then, I want to start discussing first posts and general expositionary arcs.

Credits Awarded: 3 per person

Round One


The Challenged: @Saen, @Elinor, @Leahcat517, @niteowl, @Chaser, @kat13254, @Oxara, @ChristenedPages, @Tortwag, @TheWeirdoFromBeyond, and @PrincessInk!

The Challenge: Your challenge for the first round of posts is relatively easy! All you have to do is post, have your post be at least five hundred words long, have your character receive and read the letter from Oz, and have them make a decision on their thoughts regarding what he's suggesting. You can get one point from each of these, for a total of four points.

Completion Time: November 5th, 2018

Good luck!

and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder

The newsletter is sadly no more, so credits will be awarded... probably, well, as I feel like it. I'm surprisingly lazy at times. XD

Greetings, dear listeners! You are tuned in to the third broadcast of the year. It's two months late, but that's because there has been significant rearranging in the League's ranks. We wanted to ensure things would settle down a bit before making the announcements.

Prepare to be blown away by what you're about to hear (or see, if you're tuned in on our official website)! For those of you who are listening for the first time, note that we shall first share the old rankings before revealing the new listing.

Spoiler! :
Champion: BrumalHunter - Ghost

Elite Four 4: Sheytato - Ice
Elite Four 3: Lumi - Fairy

I hope none of our listeners are faint of heart, as the shock may have been too much for some to handle. Alas, I, your great and magnificent Champion, AstralHunter, have ceded my position to the ever-persistent Sheyren. Fear not, for it is only temporary - the poor soul needs the experience, so I shall allow him to gain some before reclaiming my title. Nevertheless, he is officially your Champion now, so award him the respect and recognition he deserves the next time you encounter him!

Naturally, this means yours truly is the final member of the Elite Four. Before you could even dream of facing me, you must first defeat Lumi, Wolfical, and TheSilverFox. Yes, you heard correctly - Wolfical has reclaimed her E4 status! It goes to show you how far determination and diligence can get you, while stagnation and complacency will result in being left in the dust.

Even so, "the dust" is still the highest ranking position among the Gym Leaders; don't think Steggy's Rock Gym will be a pushover. Next-in-line Saen has moved her Dragon Gym closer to the E4, and if my instincts are correct, she's aiming to elevate her Dragons to beyond Gym levels. Watch out! Similarly, Gym Leaders Lael and ScarlettFire, the latter of which is completely new to the League, have triumphed against their direct competitors, with Omnom being bumped down and Feltrix being forced to stand down! The League is a cutthroat organisation, I tell you. (Metaphorically, of course.)

Only a single challenger remains. soundofmind has now beaten five Gym Leaders, but her next opponent is former E4 member Rydia. She might just be too much for the young trainer to handle, and if so, we may see yet another reshuffling of positions the next time we appear on the air.

Until our next broadcast before the end of the year (which is rapidly approaching, by the way) we bid you farewell! Remember, train hard, be it for battles, contests, or simply fun, and always believe in your Pokémon!

As a heads-up, the new CC for October will be revealed on Monday! Since it started late, it will overlap for a while with the November CC, making it the first CC not to expire after the new one has been announced. Make good use of the last few days you have left to claim credits for the super easy September CC!

I claim ten credits for my post in Shattered Moons for having most of the members of Team VRDN enjoying or talking about music! Do I hear outcries of corruption and credit rigging? No? Good, because such outcries would be entirely unfounded rubbish.

The Players



The Challenge

The job is simple: write your introductory post. Because it's almost Halloween, you get an extra point for having there be a demon or a spook - whether this is metaphorical or literal is your choice. For an additional bonus, include another character that's in the SB. It may be in a memory, thoughts, or actual interaction; that's up to you.
The Compensation

One point for the post, and one additional point for each bonus, resulting in a total of three available points.

Captain's Challenge: The Wheel Turns
As Issued by Navigator Hunter


On the rough seas of life, the Winds of Fortune oppose and assist in seemingly equal measures. It takes a steady hand to stay the course. The Storybook Crew has recently faced two severe storms, yet with the guidance of our beloved Captain and Quartermaster, we have emerged united and determined. It is their example that has inspired this Captain's Challenge — the first of a new, uncertain era.

For the remainder of October and some of November, your challenge is twofold:
1. Pay homage to a good leader. Let your characters express their faith in or admiration for the person/s who must guide them.
2. Show strength of resolve. Let your characters demonstrate their perseverance in the face of past, present, or pending tribulation.

Sincerity is essential for this challenge. Not only must your characters be true in their display of trust and/or tenacity, but this challenge must also be integrated inconspicuously into your post. For genuine expression, two credits will be awarded per aspect, and each may be completed twice, for a total of eight credits; for false expression, no credits will be awarded. Any number of characters (NPCs included) and storybooks may be used to complete this challenge.

Know that a pirate ship is not governed by force, but through democracy; a vessel's leadership retains their authority only as long as they serve the interests of the crew. Rest assured, dear citizens, that this vessel has two of the most capable sailors at its helm.

But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
