Embrace your animalistic roots

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!

Thread Prompts

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.

Standard Points

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!

2+ points eachCreate 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. :)
