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!

Challenged Adventurer(s): @Rydia - @TheSilverFox - @AstralHunter - @RippleGylf - @Sheyren - @Lumi

Storybook: Mana

The Challenge: Trusting Elves & Why They Don't Deserve It

Your challenge this month is to reflect upon a time, dedicating ~20% of your post, when your elf committed a crime that has them wanted by the Pontifex. If they are not wanted by the Pontifex, they may have gotten away with something. Use this, however, as a chance to add depth to your character, and not just grit.

You will receive two points for your memory of crime, as well as one bonus point for our typical Lore Bonus, in which you expand upon the lore of the world.

Completion Time: 1 post per completionist

Credits Awarded: 2 base, 1 bonus; 3 max.

Deckhand's Challenge: ...Was It Ides or Ires?
As Issued By A Rydia Imposter


March 15th is held in absolute disgust--or absolute adoration!--as the day Julius Caesar was...well, let's avoid spoilers. *makes a slicing motion across his throat* But the Ides of March aren't to be feared, Storybookers!

Your challenge this month, however, should be.

Your challenge is to stab a character in the back. Read that as you will. For each post in which you hurt, betray, or crush a trusted or loved one (or literally stab someone in the back--let's be honest, it'll happen) you will receive 2 points for a maximum of 8 points over four posts.

Of course, we'd prefer you didn't go on a killing spree in one storybook, so you will be fairly compensated for your violence as committed across many storybooks.

Two bonus points will be awarded for backstabbing across five different storybooks.

Those active last month!

Challenged Adventurer(s): @ScarlettFire - @Sheyren - @Steggy - @Lumi - @TheSilverFox - Any participant of V

Storybook: V

The Challenge: And What if the Heavens Collided?

V is one to watch the skies and adore what they could tell him if spoken to. Your challenge is to have V sneak from home during the night (one point).

Look for Alexei's street art and examine how it makes V feel to find it (one point).

And if you're feeling gutsy, visit a rooftop with a pack of cigarettes in Alexei's memorium and watch the skies, reflecting on where he could be now (one point.) This may be completed three times for a maximum of nine points if you're absurdly crazy.

At this point double and triple posting is allowed; however, your creation of the scenes cannot copy another's, though they may be similar.

Completion Time: 3 posts per participant.

Credits Awarded: 1pt x 3 challenges x 3 posts = 9 max.

Yes, I'm vampire-desperate for posts. And remember, Storybook Town; this SB is open to anyone who wants to participate at any time.

Challenged Adventurers: @AstralHunter - @TheSilverFox - @Sheyren - @chibibo - @Nutty - @Lumi - @RippleGylf

Storybook: Pokebook VI: World Tour

Challenge: For Namesake!

Before the end of the chapter or before 30 days pass, you are to participate in a Pokemon battle. You receive a base 1 point for battling, 1 bonus point for battling a member of the crew, and 1 bonus point if you lose and learn something from the fight.

This may be completed once per person, but since it takes two to tango, the other combatant can come and receive the Opponent's Credit, which equates to two points, which may only be obtained once.

Thus, a total of five points may be claimed from this challenge if you battle twice inside the crew.

Completion Time: 30 days or 1 chapter.

It is my great honour today to reward our long standing member @chibibo with this fine lead badge - may your pencil ever be sharp so that you may better stab the bad guys and if not, you can always chisel a few slithers off of your badge and use a sling shot. Congratulations to our newest recruit!

I have another equally important badge to award and this one is for @Feltrix who has come to join our ranks of adventurers. There are terrible things out there in the darkness but fear not for our brave friend will go out armed with this paper shield and shine a light during our darkest hour (afterall, this is a flammable badge). Welcome!

@AstralHunter earns three points for the Pokebook challenge for losing a battle against Rosendorn's Jasmine's Haunter named Murtle with his Connor's Houndour named Hades, and learning a good lesson on training in the process!

@Rosendorn earns two points as the collateral winner and...mentor?! (Find out next time!)

I'd also like to claim two credits for completing the CC by having Jasmine cheat the wheel again. @TheSilverFox receives two credits for completing the CC as well.

Oh, and my and @Rosendorn's credits have been granted.

In light of her victory despite having been disadvantaged, we are delighted to welcome @Rosendorn to the order as our newest Recruit! Though she has been around for longer than the order's existence, she must nevertheless begin training for her first trial. Dungeon Masters @Rydia or @Lumi (symbolically for the latter <_< happylumi?) will personally present her with the Lead Shield she has earned in the hopes of inspiring her.

However, hers is not the only shield that will be presented by the Dungeon Masters! For his long and dedicated service, we have elected to promote @TheSilverFox to the rank of Captain! A hearty congratulations is in order, so be certain to salute him when you pass (it's stated as mandatory to salute your superiors anyway, so just do it or be responsible for cleaning the banquet's dishes). He may be a tad late though, seeing as he consumed an umeboshi onigiri several hours ago and is still brushing his teeth. We shall ensure no Japanese food is present at the feast.

PS: Apparently Lumi is still not happy. <_<

Lumi, to make himself happy:
Spoiler! :
Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an "L" on her forehead

Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
So much to do, so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
You'll never know if you don't go
You'll never shine if you don't glow

Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold
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

While I do reserve that I've TOOOOOOTALLY already accomplished that by singing Smash Mouth at the party...it is Rosey, so...yeah yeah yeah! I'll borrow your coronation baseball bat this ONE time. ;)

(because Heaven knows I'm getting my own once we start the shenanigans we have down the pipeline...)

*clears throat for sea shanty*

C - C7 C9 C11
O - O - O - Ohhhhh!

Down in the land of the writing sun
a unicorn was seen!
Clad in a shield of lead so pure
Old @Rosendorn was she!
Old @Rosendorn was she!


*blows harmonica to the tune of an obscure army anthem*

And, braving the wilds under the sea, under the sea (which it's not better down where it's wetter for canines; trust me we have to work with them,) @TheSilverFox has reclaimed a ridiculously large sapphire that we have gone about...turrrrning into a shield, as we do! Because we're pirates! Who make shields! (But also, like, we had the whole RPG Knight thing by default, just never did much with it...except kept you safe from dragons nyeh nyeh ;P ) I digress.

TheSilverFox! Take up this undeniably heavy shield and wave it around like you just don't care (to fend off the fire.)

Plunder on, Mateys. ;)

May I collect my points for the Captain's Challenge? My character in Church of Incarnate stabbed someone in the back with a semi-sentient scroll of light. It drew blood, so I'd assume it counts.
