Got several to nominate here.

First, myself for Addict and Supporter.

Then my other account, Gurgeh, and Frid for 'enemy of my enemy'. They're working together to take down the Avriel in Athart, but for totally different reasons. Vyren also should have "Murderer" for his latest thread Work is Killing Me

Then I'd like to nominate for Sesha, Yuli'anyh, Uiyaejn (East Front), Eddrick Brodon and Dindu Nuffin (West Front for 'War Hero' in the Battle of the Hotlands Claypan.

EDIT: Enemy of my Enemy doesn't apply, and I have decided to retire Bri, bringing me down to four.

For enemy of my enemy, your character must be working with someone (a PC) they can't stand (would rather stab than be in the same room with), to eliminate an important character (can be an NPC) who they both hate more.

Medal Nomination Thread

The following medal concepts would be awarded to those PCs who completed, and survived, an epic challenges that the respective staff player sent the PC's way in a moderated thread. The definition of an epic challenge is interpretable by the respective staff players – as this could be a thread of magic, mortality, heartbreak, psychotic break, and so forth. The medal progression is designed with the intent for PCs to not necessarily get too comfortable in one place or one set of collaborative writers, and to go out and experience the full breadth of Idalos and the real powers that be in it. Though they lack the stat boosts of Pokemon badges, PCs who make it to the end might really be able to say they've seen it all.

The precise medal titles are, of course, open to redesign as the individual staff players surely will have the best suiting idea of how their "challenges" will go. My original thought is that they reflect the writing styles of the staff players and play off the themes of their account names. There are plenty of options available; the suggestions below are merely a brainstorm.

By no means an immediate project to go about (Let's be real, there's plenty to develop here!), though staff players might consider their own marks of approval for those PCs that bring the "wow" factor in moderated threads to signify this progression of seeking immortality in the ever-changing crucible that is Standing Trials.

All Staff – "Talk about Original"
* that is all active staff at the current time of the award, the more ST grows, the more difficult this becomes to achieve
Let's face it, if a PC has survived the hell-storms of all these writers, there must be something divine about them.

All Narrators – "That which is Immortal"
Jade – "A jewel, unjaded"
Kingdom – "King me", "Thy kingdom come", "All the light touches…"
Basilisk – "A face to fear", "Stared Death in the eyes", "Beware my gaze"

All Versifiers – "Hero of legend"
Whisper – "Only the beginning…", "One day, they will cheer your name"
Maltruism – "A cut above the rest"
Nymph – "Go with grace",
Shards – "Far from broken"
Plague – "Get down with the sickness", "Purifier"
Anomaly – "Exceptionally exceptional"

All Minstrels – "A song to be sung", " A tall tale to tell"
Rumour – "Someone to talk about", "Have you heard of me?", "Surely, you've heard of me…"
Griffin – "Talk about a wild ride", "Storm chaser"

All Poets – "Who needs Virgil?", "Without a guide", "A long ways to go"
Pegasus – "To the brightest skies", "On wings of glory"
Kraken – "From the darkest depths"
Incubus – "Take heart", "None to die for"
Squirrel – "A special kind of nut", "Well kept, for an animal"
Zenith – "Rise above", "Above all", "Piquing interests…"
