Attention Reviewers

If a character uses a significant amount of magic in their thread, you must add a note in your review to say that these points can be used for increasing magic skills.

Players. Please don't spend points on magic that aren't approved for such. You can't write non magic threads and increase your magic skills with those points, they must be approved.

New Blessings!

Two new blessings have been released:

1.
Loshova - Ashan's mark (Immortal of Spring, Spirituality, Freedom)
2.
Nyvora - Jesine's mark (Mortalborn of Dreams, Sleep, Imagination)

We've also released new write-ups for both
Ashan and Jesine.

A huge thank you goes out to Thunder for his work on Ashan and Loshova, and to Anomaly for her work on Jesine and Nyvora! And thank you to all the staff who contributed their feedback.

The Rewards Guide
Guidelines for rewarding points.


Story

1/5
Story is barely legible.
The story was a single post under 250 words long.

2/5
The thread was abandoned and no effort was made to complete the story by the player(s).
The story is under 500 words long.

3/5
The story had no purpose or the character(s) didn’t achieve anything.
The story was very dull and no effort was made to engage the reader.
The story is under 1000 words long.

4/5
The skills on a character’s CS don’t correlate with the actions taken in thread. Realism is important.
The story is under 1500 words long.
Story clearly isn't finished.

5/5
The story was engaging, easy to read and understand.
The character(s) accomplished something (be it modest or sensational).


Structure

1/5
Story is barely legible due to a high number of grammatical errors, missing words, or whole sentences (basically you think they tried to make up their own language and failed).

2/5
Writer was clearly drunk when they wrote this.

3/5
The writer made little to no attempt to edit their work before submitting it for review.
The structure of the post and obvious lack of grammar or too many spelling mistakes made tricky to read.

4/5
Enough mistakes that the review warrants more than a general comment about small things that could be worked on to improve the structure in future threads.

5/5
The story was free of errors (or errors were very minor) and easy to read.


Things you might mention but not deduct points for.


Story

The story feels unfinished (opinion) vs story is unfinished.
The story was very good and quite lengthy but the character(s) didn’t do much.

Structure

Run-on sentences.
A lack of or too many commas.
Incorrect capitalization.
English is clearly the writer's second language (go easy).

FAQ

Does Standing Trials have a minimum word limit per post?
Yes. We expect all posts to be at least 250 words long.

Is there a word limit for solos?
Not exactly, but anything under 1500 words will lose you a point in story, under 1000 will see two points deducted, and under 500 will lose you three points.

Do Reviewers have to give feedback in comments?
At the very least the team at Standing Trials would like to see all reviewers leaving positive, constructive comments. If the reviewer deducted points in any area, feedback is mandatory.
