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.
Please use the form at the bottom of the page to submit a story about another member who has gone above and beyond in our Free Company! If you're not comfortable using your own personal email, please use the Free Company official email listed on the form.
"This month I wanna nominate Undercover Sloth for Good Samaritan. Every time I see and talk to [them], [they're] always willing to help people with dungeons, advice and crafting. Sloth has helped me decorate multiple houses by gathering and crafting items I need with me and frequently turns down money from people for [they're] help. [They] are a huge sweetheart and I'm so happy to see [them] so active!"
Every time I'm on sloth is always helping someone, and if they aren't actively offering their time to help every last request, they're offering to run roulettes with people all day!"
"I don't think I've ever seen a time when Undercover Sloth wasn't positive and welcoming. I constantly see [them] offering help to people in the FC and [they] are just a great person to be around."
"The other day I was asking for help with something in FC chat. Not even 5 seconds passed and Undercover Sloth was offering to help! I couldn't believe how helpful someone could be. Can I nominate Sloth twice? Lol. I think [they] definitely deserve this month's award!"
"I remember when Undercover Sloth joined the FC and was only on late in the evening. [They] were super quiet sometimes, and I'm so happy to see that [they've] opened up! I logged in the other day and saw an FC member asking for help. Before I could offer to help, Undercover Sloth beat me to it. It's such a a pleasure having them as an FC mate and I think [they] should get the award.
I think what's equally important to helping FC mates is having a great attitude. If I can say one thing about Undercover Sloth, it's that [they] have never been negative or rude to anyone. It's great! Especially in an FC that promotes positive attitudes and helpful people, and Sloth is definitely all of those things and more!
