Legacy Superlatives
« on: Feb 01, 17, 12:15:40 PM »
Blood Rites has been going for almost 7 years now and I've been fortunate to be here for little more than 4 of them. Superlatives have come and gone and some of the categories come up year over year and some change or get moved on. But there's never been a place for the "Lifetime Academy Award" equivalent for Superlatives or something of the like.

Some of you know I used to be on HBC and did the graphic work that many of the team members share now, and I still have the old PSDs for the sig bars we all try and collect.

There's two awards I'd like to give out to our longstanding members in thanks for their constant work, their sacrifice of time, and their passion for this site that we all share and enjoy.


The first is for Jamie, Dani, and Petrichor. Jamie and Petri founded the site back in 2010 and Dani's been here since almost the full duration of the site and is the reason we have all of the awesome database stuff we enjoy now.




The second award is for Jamie, who has had the longest reigning Territory Ruler on BR without LOAs or Territory Closures, and has tirelessly supported her Territory through highs and lows. (It's for Lore, not Rheava, cuz Alora had to do Rheava's frickin job for like, two years).




Thank you ladies for all that you've done and all that you do. Thank you for building this community we all enjoy, and for continuing to bring a welcoming and warm attitude to everyone who wants to play here.

I still fondly remember BR opening after Jamie, Petri and I had done a previous BJT board. The reason I jumped on board DAY TWO was out of my love of Jamie and Petri. I know first hand much Jamie has also sweat and bled for the board, so you can trust me when I say that this would not exist without her dedication.

She's what brought me here. Everyone else and the awesome stories we tell is what kept me here.

We've been through a lot of iterations and growing pains but in the end, it is pretty awesome to be here still. <3

2008-2015 were some of the hardest years of my life and i wasn't able to participate or contribute anywhere near what Jai and Dani and all the other hbc over the years have. And also the players who have been responsible for amazing stories and worldbuilding.

Thank you so much to every single one of you who has been a part of BR carrying on seven years.

Next year BR gets its birthright jewel!

Because I didn't say it above...

#I'mNotCryingYou'reCrying

I really am so grateful to Jamie, Dani and Petri for making this place happen. The board has been personally very important to me. I've only been around a few years. In that short amount of time, I've met a staggering number of you. You're my friends.

It's been a really incredibly rough time for me since last April. I haven't always been present, even when I'm here. This place remains so incredibly important to me as a creative outlet, but also as a place where I feel safe and happy among friends.

That you have all made a place that feels this good and has lasted seven years is truly remarkable.

I am truly grateful for the time, creative energy, technical ingenuity, patience and love that you put into Blood Rites.

I literally teared up when I read this the first time.. and second time.. and I'm a wee bit emotional now even. Thanks so much Dash for the love.

This community has become my home away from home.. especially while I've been away from home! I've made some incredible friends here.. and have even crossed the globe several times to see them. London to Las Vegas to see Dash, Dani, Dany, Nicole, Phinn, Phe and Viv. Or London to Seoul to see Blue. Or when everyone came up to Mass on a week I was home - Idariel, Phinn, Dani, Lene, and Caryn.

The sustainability of this site boils down to the number of people who have willingly taken a role on HBC.. even knowing how difficult it can be at times! Dash, you were such a spectacular help on HBC, and still to this day are a great influence for the board and community. Phe was a huge figure on HBC and managed to keep so many things straight that made me go cross eyed. Blue was such a help, always willing to sacrifice words for the betterment of the community. Bowie is the reason that we survived the loss of IPBFree in 2010, without his quick thinking we never would've recovered the board. White was a monster with Character Reviews, and had never intended to actually write but just help the staff out while we got the board started. And Petri.. the lovely Petri was the brain child of so much awesomness here.. from Ratios to some of the plot bases for various Territories.

Giant shout out to the HBC of past. And a very loud and loving shout out to the current HBC who tirelessly kick ass on a daily basis to keep the board running. I can't even begin to count the number of reviews that Phinn churns through, the woman is part machine. Nicole's grasp of canon (book and board) is mind blowing and she's a great partner in crime.. nevermind what this amazing woman brings to plots. And Dani.. well.. without a single doubt I could not have doen any of this without Dani's help, plots, and especially code.

BR is blessed with talent - for writing, for plot leadership, and for being spectacularly awesome friends.

There.. I'm done being sappy, I think. I'm going to go cuddle my new sig bling and try not to cry again.

(Ps. I can't believe Lore has ruled Scelt for 7 years.. DAMN.. time flies.)

And thanks to everyone for the love <3 Know it's returned ten-fold.

(Pps. Lore was accepted before Rheava, Dash, so you were right :P)
