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.
"Big Snake has been a huge help for me when I've needed to do a dungeon. I've asked for help in FC Chat before, and he's been the first one to offer help on so many occasions!"
"I can't think of anyone better this month than Big Snake. He has been a huge help with materials for crafting and gathered items for different things I needed. Thanks Snake!"
"He hasn't helped me directly, but as soon as someone asks for help with gathering in FC Chat, Big Snake is always offering his help!"
"Sometimes I see Big Snake offering help without being asked!"
"I'm not sure I can count the times that I've seen Big Snake helping people, especially with gathered items!"
"Has Big Snake ever won this award? If he hasn't, I'm surprised! He's always helping people in the FC with things!"
