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.
Quotes from fellow Free Company members...
"The other day I logged into the game and I was having a really bad day in real life. As soon as I logged in, I was greeted warmly by Asterin. We had a small conversation and their positive attitude and acknowledgement of me logging in made me feel a thousand times better. Asterin's positive nature and kindness is why I'm nominating them for Good Samaritan for June."
"Whenever I see Asterin, she's always helping someone do something. I've seen Asterin do tons of things for FC mates. On top of that, she pretty much greets everyone and asks them how their day is going. In a large FC, that's something that's hard to find. Asterin is my Good Samaritan for June."
"I would like to nominate Asterin Whitethorn. They have been a continued welcoming member. Always greeting people and sharing in in conversation. They try to help as much as they can even if they aren't level 80 or ahead in the story. I enjoy having this person around."
"Asterin is someone that I know can keep the chat positive. They are always happy, kind, and compassionate to others. I've witnessed them stop what they were doing to help someone - I was one of those people. Thank you for always offering to help."
