Good Samaritan Recognition Award

Chronicles of a Good Samaritan...

The Black Waltz was founded on a vision to create a warm, positive, and helpful community. In order to foster these core values of our Free Company, we will be seeking stories from our members of how they or others have gone above and beyond each month to help others and translating those stories into a "Good Samaritan Recognition Award" at the end of each month. This award will be given to individuals whose positive, inclusive, and helpful nature reflects the values we hold dear and who helps others unselfishly. 

Leading up to the end of the month, Free Company Members will be asked to submit a story or example of someone who has truly been a "Good Samaritan." These "Good Samaritan Chronicles" could be from something you have done for another member, another member has done for you, or something you have heard or witnessed members have done for each other. Additionally, these stories could be of a member in our Free Company that has done something nice for another player anywhere in the game. We have many members in our Free Company that like to help others, so submitting multiple stories is encouraged! 

At the end of the month, the stories will be compiled and the person or individuals whose actions within these stories reflects the values of our Free Company the most will receive the "Good Samaritan Award." This award includes a "Thank You" gift from the Free Company Leadership Team for being a positive inspiration to others.

Due to the amount of stories we receive on a month-to-month basis, multiple members can receive this award monthly if their actions are deserving.

"Mufinella is an absolute pleasure to be around! I've never seen someone so willing to help others!"

"Mufinella! They  are completely DTC - 'Down to Craft!' She is always ready and gets orders done  quickly! Great to have them as part of the Emporium!"

"Sometimes, it seems like Mufinella is quiet but she's most likely helping someone behind-the-scenes. She is truly a wonderful individual and I think no one deserves Good Samaritan this month more than she does!"

"Mufinella is someone that I know I can rely on; she has been a kind ear whenever I've needed to vent and she never judges. I think she helps more people than she realizes just by being herself!"

 "I think Mufinella definitely deserves the title. She's been here for so  long and has always been a positive, helpful individual. She brings a  lot of energy to FC chat and she'll go out of her way just to help you run something or craft something, even if she has already done it.  She  also crafted a bunch of stuff for me for free! And those things were  expensive, but she did it anyways! I think she really should win the  award!"

"The other day I asked for help in FC Chat and chat was moving very quickly - I think some people missed my request, but not Mufinella! She asked if anyone could offer help since she was busy, and even said that she would help me when she was done if no one offered. As soon as she asked again for me, I had so many people want to help. She's so nice!"
