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 want to give Sinjin a mention for Good Samaritan this month! They have been so incredibly active and helpful lately, and I'm really pleased to see them. :) In specific today they managed to turn chat to a better place than it was and I really appreciated the help on that! They've been very positive, helpful, informative, and have been making everyone feel comfortable and welcome! "
"I think Sinjin absolutely deserves this award! He constantly goes out of his way to help fellow FC members, and always with a smile."
"This award should go without question to Sinjin Alexander! He is always welcoming and friendly in chat, runs one of the most friendly Savage raid teams I've ever seen. Always helpful, seeking to aid anyone and explain anything, even respects me despite my age! My kindhearted fellow Lalafell deserves this award surely!"
"I've been wanting to get into FFXIV for a while, but I was always worried about finding a community or group to play with. I was hardly halfway through ARR when Sinjin Alexander approached and helped me first find out what an FC was and then showed me the vibrant community Waltz had built up over the years. He has offered me assistance with the classes I've tried, getting through the sometimes long queue times old content can have and explained many of the games systems when I had missed the in game opportunity. He's never ran out of patience with me and put up with me being oblivious to a few things. Overall I'd say he's a great choice for the award."
"I would like to nominate Sinjin Alexander for being a very encouraging leader. Though it was just our small raid group, he did an AMAZING job on keeping everyone's spirits up after every wipe and made call outs, explained things thoroughly, and was very kind and patient with our group."
Sinjin is so warm and welcoming every time I log in. I don't know how he remains so kind and compassionate - as long as he's here, I don't think I'll ever leave Waltz."
