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.

Sumi Rain

"I keep seeing Sumi offering his help with things like gathering. Not a lot of people like to gather, but Sumi does and always gets what you need if you ask, without hesitation!"

"Sumi is constantly sending maps to help out the FC and is always saying 'Hello' to anyone that logs in."

"If you need help gathering items or getting something from the world, Sumi is always willing to help. He's such a wonderful person!"

"I feel Sumi goes above and beyond on making everyone feel welcomed and loved in the morning and keeps pleasant chats throughout the day."

  "Sumi Rain helped me join the Free Company. He was super nice when I sent a /tell to request to join; he even helped me get my hubby in. Sumi also showed me how to use Discord - I had never used it before. He also went out of his way to give me a good run down of the FC and seems to know who to talk to and for what. He has always extended a welcome for any harvesting requests. Sumi is extremely helpful and nice."
