Impetus prizes
categories explained
Posts made on the Impetus board are placed loosely into one of the boxes on the table below.

First, posts will be put into a box according to how many prompts were completed (up to 5). If more prompts are completed, the prizes are higher.

Second, posts are judged by quality/effort according to how that player writes normally and what constitutes a good effort from them. Players are not judged against each other, only against themselves.
  • Normal post: This is where the post 'automatically' goes if a player has approached it as they would a normal post. This constitutes an average effort from the player and is essentially a normal post.
  • Speed post: This is where the post goes if the player has opted to do a speed post. The player can self-define a speed post by putting it in the subject line; otherwise any post under 350 words is automatically classed as a speed post.
  • Personal better: If the post is above the player's average quality, so if they have put more effort than usual into it and it is longer or higher quality than they would normally write, it goes into this box. This is where most Impetus posts are likely to go, since people usually put more effort into quests than normal posts.
  • Personal best: If a player has reached a new 'personal best' and has produced an outstanding quality post which deserves special recognition, they go in this box. It will be more unusual to get into this box.

prizes explained
Each prize is given as a max value if only that prize is distributed. So for example, if a box specifies "up to 200$ and up to +20 points", then the player cannot receive 200$ AND +20 points. They can only receive up to 200$ on its own, or up to +20 points on its own. To combine prizes, the value of each has to be lowered; so for example they can receive 100$ and +10 points, or 150$ and +5 points, etc.

Prizes can be banked; they do not have to go to that individual character.
