Joining Incentives

There are many things that the staff would like to keep balanced; if anything ever becomes a bit too unequal, we will incentivize joining specific types of characters or current characters switching ranks. Check this thread whenever you're interested in creating a new character - you may be able to earn some sweet rewards by helping us out!

The only time the staff will restrict anything is if the incentives we post go unused and the imbalance grows larger. Please know that if a restriction is listed below, we do it with a heavy heart and it will be removed as soon as things start to even out again!

Monitored Statistics
These are items that we may incentivize or restrict, just in case you're curious!

Courts        Ranks



 

Rules & Regulations

  1. If you are redeeming a restricted item (outfit, etc):
    • Post in the appropriate Restricted Item Redemption thread
    • Reference the "Call Name" found under the "All Incentives & Restrictions" list below
    • If two incentives (ex. Court-specific and Rank-specific) are running at once and you qualify for both, you can claim 2 rewards!

  2. Restrictions for incentive rewards:
    • They can only be used for the specific character being joined.
    • They cannot be transferred to a different character, even if not yet redeemed.
    • If you switch Court/Rank to gain an incentive, do not switch back immediately.*

  3. If you are caught breaking the above #2 Rules, be advised it is considered cheating the system and will result in:
    • Official Tier 2 warning
    • All rewards revoked (even if already redeemed)

  4. For restrictions: Any new characters that fall under these will have their application declined until the restriction is lifted.

Sovereign-Led Incentives
Each season, Sovereigns are given a stipend of signos that they can allocate towards events, rewards, and prize items. Some Sovereigns may choose to incentivize joining specific ranks within their Court (though they cannot incentivize or give out prizes for just joining the court itself) — and if so, they can be cross-posted here for visibility!








How To Redeem Sovereign-Led Incentives

  1. Refer to the Official Court Account post to see the available rewards.

  2. For Signos rewards: Post in the Signos Redemption Thread to redeem 'Receive a Signos Reward for a Sovereign-led Incentive', making sure to link to the thread posted by the Official Court Account that details said prize.

  3. For Item rewards: Post in the applicable Item Redemptions thread, making sure to link to the thread posted by the Official Court Account that details said prize.

  4. For any other rewards: Ask the Sovereign and/or staff!
