What is it?The achievement system is a way of 'leveling up' your character through participation in plots and activity on site. 'Level Up' in this instance, is not literal. We don't have real character 'levels' on site, it's just a cute vernacular to indicate progression in power and abilities. Essentially, players will submit a review of everything they've done on site to indicate to staff their activity. This review will include links to all threads and challenges the player/character has participated in within the last few months, per achievement. You only need to link enough that you believe is sufficient activity to justify the need or want to level up your character.
The same time the review is submitted, a player will write-out what they want to earn using the level up system (this is explained in more detail in the form below). Keep in mind that if a player requests too much at one time, they will be asked to minimize their level up 'want.' That does not mean that a player can't submit another one at another time to further upgrade their character. Let's just not get all overpowered too quickly, eh?
Once an achievement level up has been submitted, Indigo and I will take a look at everything you've done and make a request of you. You will be asked to play in a thread as if the character has this ability, or is developing this ability with a prompt (plotttyyy). Once that thread has a few posts in it, reply back here, we will take a look and approve the achievement. We ask this of you, not because we doubt your abilities, but sometimes playing it out the power or ability ends up not being what/how you want it to be, and since we have the rules we have established we don't want you to regret that decision. Also we're totally nosy and just want to see what you do with it.
Currently, this system 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.
RulesThere are very few rules associated with the achievement system and upgrading your character:
Last WordsPlease, please, please, please... do not be discouraged by this process. This is a reward system that you earn through enjoying Black Prism and normal play. This is not meant to be work, and in the event the Achievement System turns into something like that, we will rework it. Also, it's okay to be confused by this process, it's kind of strange, but we would be absolutely ecstatic to walk you through it when and if you choose to do so!
Last but not least, we ask you be patient during this process, it is not immediate. Reviews may take up to one week to provide you with your prompt as Indigo and I are not always available for achievement reviews (since we will be doing it together to avoid bias), and the prompt completion/participation depends on you. We believe a completed achievement level up will take approximately one month to complete, give or take a week depending on real life.
>> P.S. If it takes us longer than a week to give you your prompt, please smack us with fishes.
I am a 27 year old Sanitation and Safety Specialist for the Division of Hotels and Restaurants (I'm a food inspector), two-time, college graduate with degrees in Psychology and Biology. I worked really hard for my first Bachelor's Degree of Arts in Psychology and simultaneously worked my butt off because financially I was doing rather poorly. I worked in the field for five years and, unfortunately, in the state of Florida mental health administrators don't actually care a whole lot about mental health. I left that field in favor of something a lot more friendly. Pets.
I went back to school, I graduated with my second Bachelor's of Arts (this one in Biology) December of 2015. I currently work at a specialty and emergency veterinary hospital. Until my schedule changed (as college schedules usually do), I was working as the cardio veterinary assistant and I love[d] it. I'm afraid to go back to any sort of schedule at this location because they have fired or reprimanded people that I've liked and though very influential, so I don't want to return and not enjoy the job I loved.
I'm not 100% sure what I will do ultimately with my degrees. Maybe go to medical school, vet school or get my master's, or maybe just take a break and work for some non-profit organization with wildlife. I don't know! My options are endless and I'm excited to get to that part of my life. For now I just need monies.
I am married, to a wonderful man whom I often complain about. But he has his fair share of complaints about me. We have a bearded dragon named Noz, two leopard geckos (Sterling and Peach), and four dogs (two papillons: Indiana and Ginger, two chihuahuas: Winnie and Alpha). I have a roommate who is also one of my best friends (also my husband's best friend for the last I dunno, lots of years), and he has a dog that I also love (Kakashi, American Eskimo). But that's enough about fur children and friends.
I enjoy reading and writing, though my tastes are more correlated with high and modern fantasy. I am not currently reading, much to my chagrin, my leisure time running Black Prism, being a house marm and job hunting hasn't allowed me to sink my teeth into a good book. I enjoy video games, I have every system but my favorite right now is the Xbone.
I am always available for contact on my Skype, it's usually on and I always answer if I can. So, with that being said, if you message me and I don't answer it's not because I don't want to, it's because Skype didn't update, didn't bing, I'm asleep or I haven't seen it. I am always up to chat, even if you're just a guest wanting to chat about the novels.
All in all, I look forward to chatting and playing with you all.
29 30 year old stay at home mom. I was in college for a while online till my husband’s job got a bit crazy. I’ve been with my husband for almost ten years, and we have been married for three four years. I have two children, and a cat. I’m virtually always around, but I have a tendency to walk away from the laptop often. Don’t worry, I always come back and I’m pretty easy to catch via skype!
Other than role playing, I play World of Warcraft, read from so many genres it might take a while to list, and I go to the gym at least four times a week. I have a habit of binge watching on Netflix, and staying up way too late.
Pop in for a chat, check out this lovely site, and let’s get plotting! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with, and how to help see people get there.
