CryBaby CryBaby
We are all snarky and sarcastic. Deal with it. If you can't you will earn this "award" until you get over it. If you keep this award for a week you will get a public warning as a sim announcement, two weeks and you will be asked to leave the game.

Punishment: Possibility of removal from sim.
Details
Backseat Driver Backseat Driver
While the Consistency Nazi does not harass their GMs and other writers, the Backseat Driver does. This is not an award you want to see on your account. After one week you will get a public warning as a sim announcement, keep it on there for two weeks and you will be asked to leave the game. Do not meddle in the affairs of GM's for thou art crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

Punishment: Possibility of removal from sim.
Details
Inonsistency Nazi Inonsistency Nazi
You are consistently inconsistent. A character incurs the title Inconsistency Nazi the third time another writer receives the Consistency Nazi award from pointing out an inconsistency within said characters posts. This is not a good thing at all. It means you need to start paying more attention to the details. Earning this award once will gain you a written warning, twice will result in disciplinary action up to and including removal from the sim.

Punishment: Possibility of removal from sim.
Details
Story Board Artist Story Board Artist
Not only do you participate in plotlines and story arcs, but you've helped write at least three of them yourself. An example of someone who earns the Storyboard Artist Award is a writer who helps design a rough outline for a main plot or arc that the entire game follows. This would not be a two- or three-character subplot thrown together between yourself and friends, but a story arc that the entire game follows along with. It shows that not only are you a very competent writer, but the game staff trusts you with the game's overall direction.

** Reward: One power trick of the GM's choice for a character of the writer's choice. The other character for this power trick will be based on the specific story in question. The primary writer for this storyline will have "control" of the power trick and their character must be the one to initiate the power trick.
Details

WordSmith WordSmith
Writer consistently uses expansive vocabulary in their posts without sounding contrived or as though they have a monumental cylindrical ligneous mass up their posterior. (in case you missed the hint this is an example of what NOT to do) Three posts with clever or creative wording will earn you the title of Word Smith.

** Reward: One NPC powerset of GMs choosing for one character of the writers choice.
Details
Ignoramus Ignoramus
An Ignoramus is a writer that uses big words simply for the sake of sounding smart. Such as saying "a monumental cylindrical ligneous mass up their posterior" rather than "stick up their butt." A character will be deemed an Ignoramus any time the GM has to edit a post to make it be generally understood. This title will be removed only when a character has released two sequential posts without incurring any further negative rewards. If a writer does not earn removal within the next 5 posts they release it may result in disciplinary action up to and including removal from the sim.

Punishment: Possibility of removal from sim.
Details
Rules Lawyer Rules Lawyer
A Rules Lawyer is such a stickler for the rules that they constantly gripe when other bend or break them. Rules are there for a reason, and yes they need to be followed, but all rules have bending or breaking point and with a bunch of people in a creative setting this will happen. Remember, you do taste good with ketchup.

Punishment: Possibility of removal from sim.
Details
Go With the Flow Go With the Flow
A character that goes with the flow makes the GM's life easier. They never have to be reminded of the rules, they simply follow them. A character earns "Go with the Flow" if they complete "3X3" without incurring any GM wrath. If they maintain "Go with the Flow" for their next 3 posts (meaning a total of at least 12 posts without issue).

** Reward: One power trick of the GM's choice for a character of the writer's choice. The other character for this power trick will be based on the specific story in question. The primary writer for this storyline will have "control" of the power trick and their character must be the one to initiate the power trick.

Reward: One cantrip power, in gaming my group always considers cantrips to be spells that have no specific usefulness save for story telling and role playing. So once your character has awakened I will decide on a little power that will be fun or funny to play with but not provide any offensive or defensive ability.

Reader's Digest Reader's Digest
To earn the Reader's Digest award, a writer must write up a synopsis of their posts every few weeks.

The expectation is that this will have a 1-3 sentence synopsis of what happened in each post. For each 6 month period covered the writer will earn this award.
