Like most places nowadays Boundless Universe has badges and awards you can proudly display as a sign of your character's achievements and life condition. There is no point value to them, but people seem to love them anyway and respect their symbolism. These stem through two basic sizes, large and small.
Not all badges are listed, we have so many to offer and more are made every day! Check the forum for up to date list and to apply for the badges.
We also have a yearly awards give out where people nominate and vote folks for who should deserve "of the year" status.
Quest badges should be self explanatory, but there are some conditions that will throw you for a loop. They are generally used for those who have started, participated(ing), or finished a quest.
Some are temporary, showing only while you are in a particular condition (such as pregnant or engaged), and some will last the duration of the character's playing existence.
Most (not all) of these badges can be earned more than once, too, marked by simply adding a number of times achieved!
As quests are something that come and go, it did not seem reasonable to put up an active list with pictures like the other badges. So, if you're hankering to get some quest related badges: Keep your eyes open! Some you will receive just as soon as you get into it, some you get only when finished... some will cost something of your characters... some will cost nothing.
But here's an example
Trial By Ordeal [Completed] Given to people who have helped Syka on his worldwide quest to get his magic back.
Keep your eyes peeled and yourself open to opportunities and people for your chance to earn an exclusive quest badge. For a list of current quest badge opportunities (but not all of them!) check out the forum.
Unique badges, typically OOC related.
These badges signify that character is a member of a group. You can learn more about different groups here .
Another type of social badge is the awards given yearly by member vote. We call them the BELCH awards.
These badges are given by the staff when earned.
