The game is a fun way to encourage posting and relevant in character plots (not to mention the shiny prizes you can get)! There are all kinds of ways to earn points, and you can start earning points the second you join up with the clan!
Every so often, there are thread prompts, intended to promote activity and to encourage IC and OOC interaction between New Dawn members. Sometimes characters will be chosen to have these prompts around them, though players are encouraged to think of unique things for their characters to do with these chosen.
Any of the prompts from the regular set of earning game points can be stacked on top of the points you gain from completing this challenge! Each thread prompt challenge is worth 10 points per prompt.
Upon completing all prompts, PM the links to your thread to a leader. For current prompts, see the New Dawn Information Portal.
There are tons of ways you can earn points in New Dawn. It's really not all about the word counts; people often seem to forget it's very easy to update the Wiki or even just act in your rank job!
|Post Length Points|
|1 point||200+ word post|
|3 points||300+ word post|
|4 points||400+ word post*|
|* Add one point incrementally for posts above 400 words.|
|In Character Points|
|10 points||Use your characters' Rank Skills |
* If your character does not have a skill rank, have them act out what rank you think would be most appropriate for them. Remember, New Dawn’s ranking is done mostly on an IC basis!
|5 points||Give back to nature. There are several human mars on the land, help nature to cover them back up, whether it is through digging or planted or just plain cleaning out the debris and destroying it. |
|10 points||Protect the pack either from another canine trying to trespass with ill intentions or a creature causing havoc. |
|15 points||Complete a thread with four or more New Dawn pack members.|
|5 points||Scout a fertile hunting ground for the pack, herds move often.|

In the recruit's first joining post, under the "How did you find 'Souls?" question, please have them mention you by name. :)
|100 points||Pick up a ND Adoptable and join New Dawn with it.|
|2+ points each||Create pack pride images |
These are “judged” on a case by case basis. We do not discriminate based on quality, but obviously an intricate art piece of all the New Dawn members is going to receive more points than a button for the Pride page! 2 points is the minimum and is the amount generally rewarded for all pride-page-type button images. :)
