  1. Staff Medals

    1. Nevermore

      Dark. Cracked. Beautiful. Nevermind's staff medal.

    2. I'm A Libra

      Wisdom and Justice. Nyctibius's staff medal.

  2. Event Medals

    Reserved for events of marked significance. Can ONLY be obtained with a donation, or as a reward for event participation.

    1. The Archivist

      You're passionate about history, or at least the potential it holds for a good story. Made by Capreo.

    2. The Conjurer

      You love fantasy, be it high, low, gritty, or giddy. Magic and swords and dragons, oh my! Made by Capreo.

    3. The Slayer

      Blood, guts, screams, and grime. You live for the brutal end. Made by Capreo.

    4. The Sleuth

      A good whodunit stimulates you like nothing else. Leave the action, drama, and gore for the rest--if there's a question in need of answering, look no further. Made by Capreo.

    5. The Romantic

      Star-crossed lovers, warm familiar fuzzies, whirlwind flings--if it involves two people desperately in love, it's where you're at. Made by Capreo.

    6. The Futurist

      It's all in the details. How was it built, where does it go, what will it do? If it's about the inexorable march of technology and science, it's where you're most at home. Made by Capreo.

    7. Mightier than Swords

      Sticks and stones may break my bones, but a good smear campaign will $&?! your whole life.

    8. Parchment

      Dry, scratchy, but doesn't get everywhere. A medieval favorite.

    9. Ink Bottle

      The (blue) lifeblood of passion itself.

    10. Present

      The past is history, the future is a mystery, but the now is a gift. That's why they call it this.

    11. Gingerbread

      No worries, that can probably be put right back on.

    12. A Mean One

      Not everyone loves Christmas. Or fellowship. Or other people.

    13. Lights of Yule

      Okay for a couple of weeks, but if you still have these up come April we'll have words.

    14. Hot Cocoa

      Comfort in a glass. Complete with a candy-cane stirrer, marshmallows, and some chocolate shavings. Stay warm in the frigid winter.

    15. Ho-Ho-Homocide

      Sometimes the holidays just drive me f*&^%ing crazy, y'know?

    16. Accountabilibuddies

      You made a promise to yourself, and now you've got someone to help you keep it. Self-improvement takes hard work. Don't give up!

    17. Four Leaf Clover

      They say finding one of these is lucky. Good for you! Killing plants based on superstition! You feel good about that, do you? Yeah? I bet.

    18. Cauldron of Gold

      They say this can be found at the end of rainbows, but good luck getting there. Dodgy bastards.

    19. Leprechaun Hat

      Somewhere there's a highly insecure magical imp missing this and probably freaking out because of it. Have fun!

    20. Golden Roll

      Is anyone else kind of amazed that this even makes sense?

    21. Pyramid Trivia

      Climbing it is prohibited but I won't tell if you won't.

      Made by Candi Cosmo.

    26. Zombie

      Watch where you step...

    27. Bat

      Likes: Fruit, bugs, just hangin' out. Dislikes: Light, loud noises.

    28. Tombstone

      RIP Toxicity, negativity, and being elitist. This year we killed rudeness.

    29. Witch Friend

      Is the friend the cat, or the pumpkin? Depends on the witch. And the cat, I guess.

    30. Toil and Trouble

      Bubble bubble. No, it's not just full of Gatorade. Or hot Kool Aid.

    31. Blood Moon

      An omen of evils awakening, or just a freaking light show?

    32. Box of Chocolates

      You never know what you're gonna get. Unless it has that cheat sheet. Then you know pretty much entirely what you've got.

    33. Bow of Affection

      Beware Cupid's Sparrow. Funny little bird but he gets the job done.

    34. Chocolate Strawberry

      I have nothing witty to say about a berry dipped in chocolate.

  3. Just for Fun

    Precisely what it says on the tin. If you'd like one of these medals, just ask any of our staff members.

      It is your birthday!

    7. Kanna

      She's stronger--and much hungrier--than she looks.

    8. Hermitage

      My shell! Mine!

    9. Infinity

      It really is profound, is it not? Such an elegant concept. So simple, yet so deeply complex. All that ends, begins. All that begins will end. We are made of the dust of dead stars and someday we will fuel new stars exploding into young life.

    10. Sakura

      Life is beautiful, fragile, and often so messy it requires entire crews to clean up after it's done with its big moments.

    11. Fuel the Fab

      It's not gasoline, but it can still keep you going.

    12. Alpaca Your Bags

      These creatures are good for their fur, bad memes, and incredible faces.

    13. Kukri

      For cutting wit, or peculiar tastes.

    14. Fox Guy

      Clever, quick, and curious. Do not approach during October.

    19. New Decade

      How many people actually thought this was a real year back in the 90's? Update: Oh, fuck, if only we knew.

    20. Unforgetful

      They say they never forget a thing. Ever. And that they're wise. Just love them.

    21. Wolf School

      Of all the Witcher schools, the Wolf School had the greatest reputation in its heyday... and the greatest fall when all came undone.

    22. What The F***, My Guy?

      Who the hell hurt you, to do this to me?

    23. Bounty Hunter

      You hunt for money and honor, but just because you sell your skills doesn't mean you sell your values.

    24. The Unicorn

      Just a lil buddy. Just a lil chum comin' to make sure you're okay. Just a lil unibro coming to say uniyo. By Capreo

    25. The Sphinx

      Would generally ask you a riddle, but can likely be totally preoccupied with a laser pointer. By Capreo

      It's love. Birb love. By Capreo

    27. The Dragon

      A tiny reptile in these trying times. By Capreo

    30. Bumble Buddy

      Bee kind!

    31. Completionist

    33. Triforce

      The Legendary Triumph Forks!

    34. Frog Queen's Blessing

    35. IDGAF

      Who even gives a golden f@&#?

  4. Fellowship

      You've handed out your referral card and invited a fantastic new member. Thanks for spreading the word!

    4. The Voting Rune

      A voting rune carved from adventurine, symbolizing gratitude, prosperity, and adventure. The rune itself represents gratitude, gifts, and... spears. Hm. A thank you to all members who exude the voting spirit.

    5. Star Moose

      The Star Moose guides you across the multiverse. Awarded for being a guide to our fellow writers. Made by Poldaran.

  5. Celestial Collection

    Since somehow a random arrangement of hot balls of gas trillions of miles away affects our lives profoundly.

    1. Aries

      Holy smokes, calm down. Think it through. Please? Stop throwing things. Why are you laughing so hard?

    2. Taurus

      Okay, I never said you were wrong, first of all. Get up. Stop browsing Amazon. No, we don't need a crystal skull that costs $5000. Wake up. Wake up! Oh my god.

    3. Gemini

      The discount air sign. What? Is someone mad about that thing you said two days ago? Who the hell can be accountable for something they said two days ago?

    4. Cancer

      What? There’s an app that tells people how many times you’ve looked at someone’s Facebook profile? You’re already deleting your account and making a new one with a fake name and only one profile picture.

    5. Leo

      Turn off the camera. Stop taking selfies. This isn't about you. No, really. It isn't.

    6. Virgo

      It's okay. Nobody else knows who you actually are, either. Well done.

    7. Libra

      Stop crying. It's just a TV show. Yes, I know, it WAS unfair. Wait, someone asked you to choose between two options? Well, that's just rude.

    8. Scorpio

      Nobody knows if you're horny or angry, but that sure is emotion.

    9. Sagittarius

      If you borrow $2 from someone, they don’t want you to bring them some Hallmark card with a baby chicken on it three months later. This is not a great way to deal with debt.

    10. Capricorn

      You’re like the fine print of an Apple software license.

    11. Aquarius

      This weirdo thinks it's an air sign, despite being a bucket of water and having 'aqua' in the name. Calm down. You're making a scene.

    12. Pisces

      Please stop crying. Nobody said 'hysterical'.
