Quills Overview
What Are Quills?
Quills are special currency used keep special features balanced and to reward players who participate in the community and get involved. The more you play and the more stories you complete, the more you can earn! By rewarding participation, we get to have as many cool features and character additions as possible while still allowing the game to be fair for all players.

Earning Quills
Quills are earned primarily through completing roleplaying threads, and will sometimes be given away as part of special events. They are a direct reflection of your involvement in the story aspects of roleplaying, so the more you participate and the more stories you tell, the more Quills you’ll have! We know that not everyone posts at the same pace or style too, so these are meant to work for anyone who posts at all.

Quills are attached to the account that earns them and may be transferred to other accounts at a minimum of 5 Quills at a time. If you drop or abandon a character, those Quills will disappear with the account.

Are you a new player? Great, welcome aboard! Within the first two weeks of joining, you’ll be given 50 Quills to spend as you please. You can either use these to add special abilities to your first character, create additional characters, or save them for later!

Stacking Quill Rewards
Each story of 10+ posts you complete in the Fixed Timeline Roleplaying Forums will earn 2 Quills for that character. Other activities around the board such as completing challenges or plot-related events can earn Quills as well. These always stack, so completing multiple challenges or special events in one thread will yield extra Quills for that thread.

  • Example: Devon & Hannah each participate in a thread, so they earn 2 Quills each. Hannah has completed a +1 Challenge and a +2 Challenge, both in that same thread. Devon completed the +2 Challenge as well.

    Devon earns 2 + 2 (Challenge) = 4 Quills
    Hannah earns 2 + 1 (Challenge) + 2 (Challenge) = 5 Quills
Completing a Sandbox Thread of 15+ posts will earn 1 Quill for your OOC account.

Spending Quills
Quills can be spent in a variety of ways, largely related to things that will enhance your character or plots. Creating a new character for the Fixed Timeline Eras will cost 25 Quills Each, and other items costing Quills will have the amount listed on the feature.
