  • DoS: BREAKING NEWS! The North, the South, no one is left unscathed in the recent masscare of people on both sides of the river. The main targets confirmed to of been people in positions of power, more info inside.
  • DoS: BREAKING NEWS! Emergency Broadcast all over the world. The Chromeria, and the Sa'Kage are once again at WAR after a failed stalemate and peace of seven years that began in 2010 and was centralized in 2012, five years ago.
  • DoS: It's World War between Chromeria and Sa'kage as Axelle Marovich takes command of the Sa'Kage. She is seen executing her predecessor Julian Silverlin on international television. But was it really him?
  • The killings have seem to stop, for now. But people are in a world wide panic, skirmishes have begun in the thousands all over the world. Leaving millions injured, thousands killed. Businesses are collapsing...
  • On all accounts, hundreds of people including the Blackguard themselves are under scrutiny for how any of this has happened...Spectrum overwhelmed by the public's desperate questions of what to do now, how to protect themselves.
  • In the wake of War how are the Prism, and Green going to juggle their relationship now? Is Paradise going to be lost elsewhere?
  • Artistry in Lochstone seems to be on the climb as more, and more artists pull themselves out of the woodwork.
  • Rumor has it, something strange is whispering inside of the Unseelie Sithen. Is it true that Awakened are weaker than Some? Can King Pyre keep his Kingdom together?
  • People are asking, curious, what side of the War are the Fatum going to fall on? Is the Sa'Kage going to enforce the Unseelie on their side? Seelie on the Chromeria's?
  • The Orange seems fit to burst, the baby should be coming soon and still no answers about who the daddy is or whether or not it's going to have a mommy and daddy or two mommies or a bunch of each!
  • There appears to be a rise in people turning to the fata drug Amaranth, seeking salvation, pleasure, escape. The rumors fly that people are trying to overdose on it.
  • There is a rise in Shifters in Lochstones, reports say as is a body count of those possibly afflicted by Meisters. Are they apart of the new Shinga's army that so effortlessly took out positions of power on both sides?

ACHIEVEMENT SYSTEM - LEVEL UP!
About

The Achievement System is a method employed by Black Prism that allows players to 'level up' or 'grow' their character throughout general play. It makes sense that powers and abilities evolve over time but given the nature of the site, we don't want a character evolving from a weak state to a powerhouse overnight (especially without approval!) As a result, we devised the 'Achievement System.'

We do not officially employ a 'Level' mechanism, the Achievement and Level Up are purely aesthetic. Please don't worry about stats on Black Prism.

The achievement can be used to earn titles and ranks, additional established powers/colors, unique powers, other abilities, unique magical items, and plot prompts that result in unique prizes, and SO much more! You're really only limited by your imagination!

Some Items that CANNOT be Earned Using This System: Third Fatum Domain of Power, Vir/Fata Pets

How it Works

Essentially, a player will complete certain tasks based on the level of 'Achievement' they want to obtain, and there are examples provided in each kind of Achievement. The player submits a review of these tasks to indicate their activity, growth and development on site! The larger the outcome of the achievement, the more steps required!

Once an Achievement is submitted, admins will review and either approve or request specific edits or items in order to continue/grant the achievement. This process can be lengthy, as to mitigate any bias Indigo and Delphi are required to do these together and arranging time where both are available is increasingly difficult due to real life.

Generally, an achievement, once put up for review, will be addressed within 30 days. If it is not addressed before then, please poke or @tag staff.

Rules

  1. Each type of achievement has a specific set of parameters that must be met, you are more than welcome to put in a WIP achievement to keep track of your progress.

  2. Once an achievement is completely finished, a player should @tag both Indigo and Delphi--please do not do this before it is finished, as the alert will get lost.

  3. Please submit your achievement, either a WIP or Completed, in the Achievement Section found HERE --NOT as a reply to this page (this is unlike the gem shop).
  4. An achievement will be considered inactive after thirty days of not being updated, progressed, or discussed with staff. Since we allow people to Achieve leadership positions, we do not want people hoarding positions inactively.

Disclaimer

This system was revised in August 2017, as a result there could be more changes to come as we notice aspects that do not function properly. We would love feedback and any suggestions you may have should you encounter snafus.

All Achievements Require

All achievements require a method of obtaining said power, title, rank, evolution, whatever it is you're asking for answer the question: How did my character gain this? This should be something you potentially add to your history, even if only a few sentences. For Leadership Achievements, this requirement is built in.

Secondly, all achievements require a full and detailed explanation of what the character is gaining. If this is a power, item, etc as if it is going to be placed into the application (because in reality once the player completes the achievement, it will be placed into the application http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif) including new weaknesses and limitations!

Micro/Mini Achievement

This type of achievement would be used for minor increases in character power, changing a character from an existing class to any other starter (requires Table of Transformation Review), adding a player written power to an existing character, developing a facet of an already existing power (may minimize current requirements, correlate with staff), add a second domain for an Awakened Fatum. Exchange a domain, 1:1 for Some/Awakened Fatum. May include other options and opportunities, ask for staff assistance if you believe your request could fall under a micro achievement if not explicitly listed here.

  • Character over 20 days old

  • Character hasn’t completed an achievement in 30 days

  • 0/2 Challenges Complete, Unique to this Achievement

  • 0/3000 Word Count, Unique to this Achievement and this Character

Macro/Major Achievement

This type of achievement would be used for major changes in character power, includes but is not limited to: adding specialties for Meister, Talented, Shapeshifter strains, Drafter Colors Polychrome/Prism status, superchromat. Adding Staff-written power/item, mini-plot with two maximum participants and one prize per. May include other options and opportunities, ask for staff assistance if you believe your request could fall under a macro achievement if not explicitly listed here.

  • Character over 30 days old

  • Character hasn’t completed a Macro Achievement in 60 days

  • 0/4 Challenges Complete, Unique to this Achievement

  • 0/6000 Word Count, Unique to this Achievement and this Character

  • For staff-run mini-plot the "all achievements require" is not necessary.

Leadership Achievement

This type of achievement is to be used to gain Leadership Position on site, but can also be used to gain both a leadership position AND an advancement or change in power if you like similar to the Macro/Major achievement above--the requirements are the same whether you utilize it to its full extent or not. May include other options and opportunities, ask for staff assistance if you believe your request could fall under a leadership achievement if not explicitly listed here.

  • Even before a player begins this achievement, please notify staff as soon as possible to reserve the open leadership position you are interested in, it will be held for 30 days+ for a reasonable amount of time as long as the player continues to show interest and/or makes progress on the achievement

  • Character over 30 days old

  • Character hasn’t completed Leadership Achievement 90 Days or lost Leadership within the last 60 days

  • 0/7 Challenges Complete, Unique to this Achievement

  • Must meet Leadership posting requirement for 30 days (4 posts in a month) within the last month, this can be concurrent with the 'how I took over' thread if it meets that/this requirement.

  • Must complete over 8 posts in a thread with another partner (so 4 posts each) detailing how the character took over the leadership position from the previous leader

    • This thread needs to make sense for character power/level/type, if it doesn't you may be asked to redo this thread

    • Keep in mind current leadership capabilities even as an NPC

  • See staff for clarification on ideas if needed

  • 0/10000 Word Count, Unique to this Achievement and this Character

  • Despite informal completion of this achievement, a character may not play as the leader of their respective position until their achievement is formally stamped with approval.
