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.

"Usagi is extremely nice all the time. It doesn't matter what type of day I'm having, I can log in and if [they're] online and chatting, it makes the whole FC feel positive."

"I always see Usagi trying to form groups for things and it seems like [they're] always wanting to do things with other FC mates. People like Usagi makes us a stronger community!"

"If Usagi is online, FC chat is always happy."

"Doing content with Usagi is an absolute pleasure! She stays positive and is not afraid to try new things. It's a lot of fun helping her with things because it feels like a closer group when you're doing stuff with FC mates, and Usagi is one of the main reasons it's so fun."

"Usagi cares a lot about people and when something goes wrong, she does her best to help get it resolved. I hope she gets Good Samaritan this month because she has a big heart and it's felt whenever she's online!"

"If you need help with stuff, Usagi is pretty quick to offer [they're] help if available. I've even seen [them] go the extra step if they are busy and offer help after [they've] finished what [they're] doing."
