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 would like to nominate Hydri Paradus as this month's Good Samaritan. They are always kind to everyone, greeting all our members and making everyone feel welcome."
"Hydri Paradus! Hydri greets *everyone* who logs in and honestly, it's nice to see every time I come on. They are always quick to help and always spreading cheer. Hydri is one of my fave people in the F.C. and they definitely deserve this! "
"My vote goes to Hydri Paradus. They are so kind saying 'Hi' to everyone in chat. I recently went to map night with them, and it was a blast. They were very thorough and kind in explaining everything. It was my first time playing with anyone from the F.C. and it was such a nice start with them."
"I spend a lot of time in the game quietly catching up, but there's one person I see greet literally everyone from the time I get on until the time they get off in the evening. Hydri Paradus does a great job of making people feel welcome, answering questions that newcomers have, and goes out of their way to make sure that every feels acknowledged and like they're part of the FC. Without fail, they're quick to greet and welcome family members back."
"Hydri Paradus is an inspiration of kindness. I don't think I can recall a day where they didn't make me or another person feel extremely welcome."
"Hydri has been hosting map nights and it's been so much fun! They have kindly taught new members how to 'map it out' and Hydri is constantly promoting community engagement in the F.C. [They] are very deserving of this award!"
