  • Locke: Since arriving at the Tower, Locke has made great strides in becoming a part of the community. His depth and focus of writing has improved in the time he has been here, and he has two rich characters to show for his efforts in Alric and Terric.
  • Emmond Salere: Emmond has had quite the ride from being in charge of the most secret and most feared of Ajahs to being little more than a janitor. What else does he have in store?

  • I Commend your Pain and Everyone Shall Share the Gains with Murdock and Fiona: Murdock has often said he is married, though he found a doppelganger of his wife in Fiona. In a twist, he used his unique talent to have her completely dependent on him, and I know I couldn't wait to see what happened next. Apparently, neither could many of our members.

Best Non-Channelling Combat
Best Non-Channelling Combatx1
  • Silken Solace with Kaia and Jaryd: We sometimes lose PC's in a Blaze of Glory, but the emotional roller coaster this particular thread put us on tugged at a number of hearts. Our hearts broke with Jaryd's as Kaia's life slipped away.
  • On Sacred Ground with Muireen: Muireen learned War Fans from one of our more Unique Gaidin, and she put her newfound skill to task when faced with the To'Raken during the Seanchan attacks. She showed bravery in the face of overwhelming odds, and helped her fellow trainees best a beast bigger than them.

Tower's Choice Awardx1
  • Murdock Mather: Rending. Fiona. Emmond and Elia. Do we need to say more?
  • Becks: We have a lot of very talented writers at the Tower, and of them all, Becks is one of the best. She always weaves such rich responses to her threads, and continually looks for opportunity to grow her characters.

  • (Least Likely / Fan Service / Amusement Value)
    Ravak Darrow and Happiness: Poor Rav. At least he's got a kid?

The Golden Broomx1
Officer's Sanity Ribbon
Officer's Sanity Ribbonx1
  • Avyra, Becks, Bella, Jenn, Sunny: Each of these people have had to face big challenges in their "real" lives in the last few months. They have each in their own way worked hard, made tough decisions, and kept moving forward despite everything. If anyone ever deserved an "adulting award," these people top the list!
  • Jenn: Through a series of unfortunate RL events of her own, Jenn has kept multiple officers sane and balanced over the last few months.
Officer's Insanity Ribbon
Officer's Insanity Ribbonx1
Builder's Ribbon

  • Jenn: For contributing her time and patience to the massive Library overhaul that happened last month.
Builder's Hammer
The Builder's Hammerx1
NPC Ribbon
Non-Player Character Ribbonx1
  • Craig: Craig went above and beyond in giving the Library a much needed visual and technical overhaul, and he began the transfer of GT2 information into our Wiki.
The Sheathed Sword
The Sheathed Swordx1
The Mark of Friendship
The Mark of Friendshipx1
  • Jaryd Kosari: Jaryd has gone through more than one serious upheaval in his life. From being collared, to losing Kaia, and finally having Zeen bond him to keep him from going suicidal, the man has been through the ringer, and his journey is not yet done. The depth and thought into his story line is well thought out, and well executed.
  • Kenneth with Taesh: Taesh is easily the most easy-going friendly guy in the entire Tower. He sees the best in everyone and does his best to reduce conflict at every opportunity.
The Mark of Training
The Mark of Trainingx1
Purple Heart
Purple Heartx1
  • Locke with both Alric and Terric: Locke has helped many learning ranks learn basic skills with Terric and Alric. He's helped the helpless become less helpless and helped mold some of our learning ranks into better, more robust warriors.
  • Emmond: For being blinded, gentled, force-bonded, demoted and... seduced? As one person put it, "Dear God!"
Blaze of Glory
Blaze of Glory Awardx1
The Golden Blade, Fang, and Flame
The Golden Blade, Fang and Flamex1
  • Kaia Sedai: With Silken Solace, was there any doubt? We saw her join the Tower, rise to Keeper of Chronicles, and then die in the arms of her lover after taking a mortal blow from an assassin. Wipes tear
  • Matty: Everything Matty writes is fun to read. His plots range from the macabre to the hilarious, and yet we all enjoy reading the dark moments just as much as the light. His characters are distinct, unique, and yet still assuredly themselves despite all the strange things he throws them at.
