Heresy Online's Official Award Medals

Heresy Online is very proud to present it's new Award Medal System.

These awards will appear in your Avatar information bars and also in your viewable member profile should you be lucky enough to receive one.

The majority of these awards will be presented by Heresy's Staff when the occasion is correct; but to keep these as a special item they will be fairly uncommon and only given to those that excel in those areas.

Do not pester Staff for any awards!

Awards may be stripped from a member by the Staff to keep the integrity of an Award should anyone disgrace the honours bestowed upon them.

A PM will notify any of you that have been presented an Award, telling you in more detail why you have been awarded.

Without further ado, here are the current batch of medals, ready to award the worthy!
