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.
"I'm throwing my hat in for Dhen Sunblade this month for Good Samaritan because [they're] one of the absolute nicest persons in FC chat in general. But, in 3 days I've seen [them] help 3 different people with 3 separate, equally time consuming tasks, and ask for absolutely not a thing in return. I'm proud of [them] - [they're] doing a great job."
"Dhen for Good Samaritan! Dhen came to The Lochs to help me finish my flight nodes! He flew me around and I really appreciated it. Now I can fly all throughout Stormblood. :D Thanks, Dehn!"
"Dhen is always super positive in chat and just a pleasure to hang out with when I log into the game. Dhen is the type of person that makes our FC so special and makes me actually look forward to logging in every day."
"Dhen helped me with something last week that [they] really didn't have to. It took a long time for us to get it done, but [they] were excited to help. I think the greatest thing anyone can gift someone is their time, and Dhen gave a big gift to me."
"I have seen Dhen offer help numerous times in FC chat when someone has asked for it. On top of that, [they] do it expecting nothing in return. Such a great person."
