CURRENCY OF PLATINUM HEARTS
Credits are the currency of PH used for the currency system of Bleach: Platinum Hearts. The currency system is designed to give members a more meaningful experience by being able to be rewarded for the work and activity they put into the site and giving a tangible form of growth you are able to reinvest into facets of the site.
All members start with 2000 credits upon joining.Activity Checks
You can claim 100 per thread made during the period between activity checks. Activity checks are done quarterly/every three months. Advertising & Recruting
For every ad made on another site, you can be rewarded up to 10. For every member you bring, and for the first three activity checks they pass you and they will receive 500 amount.Upon thread completion.
From threads a total of 50 Points per post can be claimed from a thread after completion. These can be affected, for example if a thread has a participant drop the thread and it requires to be autoresolved by a moderator the person who dropped the thread may not receive any reward for it.
Note: Due to the nature of Mature threads, involving sexual or goreish content, these will be handled on a case by case basis. Threads created which are solely for the sake of RPing these themes for the sake of RPing them with no greater purpose may not be awarded total points.Promoting Activity
*Event and mission
threads are subject to additional
credits depending on the difficulty.
Another way to earn credits is through promoting activity, this is done in a couple of ways:
1. Events that give incentives to make and play charcters in organisations and sometimes races which are lacking presence. All of these are dependant on what the status is at the time so make sure to keep up with the site events and if something like this might be going on--the exact rewards will be listed in the event ongoing at the time.Event/Mission Modifiers
2. Credits can be awarded for the creation of missions and the running of them. These can be created in the event creation centre and if approved and done to completion. Credits awarded depend on difficulty of said mission, these are covered in the creation process of events and missions between player and staff.
3. Creation of guides and certain tasks requested by staff for the site can merit some credits. These guides will be checked by staff and if implemented an award can be given. For every guide or task completed a player can expect to see about 50-100 credits.
4. Creation of NPCs for events or missions can merit one some rewards. To prevent spamming of random NPCs rewards will be restricted until the NPC is used in a mission or event, the reward though will be based on the difficulty level of mission/event.
5. Leadership positions are another way, this is more for the member that's been around a bit and got their character a role with a bit of weight to it that puts them in a more leaderlike role. Something like a seated officier to captain as an example. You can receive extra rewards based on proactivity in creating activities and trying to engage your subordinates of your group to drum up activity.
Below are the various difficulty levels of missions. In total there are six. More information on them can be found in the actual Mission System, located here
. Below only mentions the additional credits received from completion of event threads.

WHAT CAN IT BUY?Character Slots
Below are a list of character slots that can be purchased with the site currency. Purchasing a specific tier slot can be beneficial for those who don't rely on having large amounts of power behind them and just want to start from the ground and develop up. As Platinum Hearts is very much driven with a bias for seeing characters grow and develop, the lower price is done as an incentive to promote that philosophy.
Basic Character Slot // 1000 creditsReserve Tickets
--A character slot that is what it says on the box. Purchase of this character slot means that tier will be assigned based on the grading done by staff based on the character in question.
6 Tier Character Slot // 100 credits
--A character slot that will be approved with 6 tier.
5-3 to 5-5 Character Slot // 200 credits
--A character slot that will be approved with a tier between 5-5 and 5-3.
5-2 to 5-1 Character Slot // 250 credits
--A character slot that will be approved with a tier between 5-2 and 5-1.
4-3 to 4-5 Character Slot // 1500 credits
--A character slot that will be approved with a tier between 4-5 and 4-3.
4-1 to 4-2 Character Slot // 2500 credits
--A character slot that will be approved with a tier between 4-2 and 4-1.
3-3 to 3-5 Character Slot // 5000 credits
--A character slot that will be approved with a tier between 3-5 and 3-3.
3-1 to 3-2 Character Slot // 7500 credits
--A character slot that will be approved with a tier between 3-2 and 3-1.
2-3 to 2-5 Character Slot // 10000 credits
--A character slot that will be approved with a tier between 2-5 and 2-3.
How tiered slots work: The nature of how these character slot with set tiers work is that the grading approach is done with the intention of the grader taking a more hands on approach to get the app to a level of being acceptable for that range. Rather than the standard approach wherein we grade the application based on the provided material. This instead done with the end result already established from the beginning.
Canon Character Slot // 2000 credits
--A character slot that is able to be used for the creation of a canon character. Due to the nature of needing to do a role-play sample and be approved to play a canon, this slot only needs to be bought after being approved and given the go ahead to make the canon.
Hybrid Character Slot // 4000 credits
--A character slot that will be able to be used in the creation of a hybrid character. Due to the nature of hybrids being on the more rarer side of the PHverse population and the general nature of them being more rare to occur in general. This slot only deals within hybrids not supported by the site, for example arrancar and vizards can be classified as hybrids but they have developed to the status of a sub-race. A character who possesses demonic and shinigami racial qualities would fall under the realm of this slot.
On Platinum Hearts, currency can also be spent on tickets to reserve something and provide time to complete it. Due to the nature of this and it essentially denying someone else who could be more active they are only able to be used up to a certain point to prevent someone from abusing it. All tickets only last for two weeks.
Face-Claim Reserve // 500 creditsMiscellaneous Tokens
--A face-claim reserve ticket can be purchased which reserves a face-claim for two weeks. Only being able to be bought once more afterwards for that specific face-claim which allows for a grand total of four weeks.
Organisation Position Reservation // 5000 credits
--A ticket which can reserve a spot within an organisation for up to two weeks. This is very niche but in the event where you are trying to secure a specific spot and need that extra wriggle room to finish the threads, one of these can be handy. It can only be used on a specific position once.
Moderated Threads // 1000 creditsAdvertising
--Moderated threads are threads wherein a member of staff is directly involved in the thread. Usage of this token allows for the player to request that staff assist in a thread, whether that is via NPCing, assisting in or running events. This can include overseeing a thread, especially helpful for preparing for upgrades as it avoids issues where a player goes through a lot of effort but falls short in some areas which don't push the upgrade through such as important core training threads such as bankai, other major power upgrades etc.
Legacy Faceclaim // 50000 credits
--Legacy Faceclaim is something for members who have been on Platinum Hearts for some time. It is the ascension of your character's Faceclaim being so famous and recognisable due to impact on the PH setting that you can pay to have it recorded as such. Legacy Faceclaims are unique in that once recorded they cannot be claimed or used afterwards, even if that member goes inactive or the character dies.
Site Boards // 50000 credits
--On rare circumstances, a site board can be purchased for a large amount of credits. Due to wanting to avoid boards to be clustered and becoming a labyrinth, these will be done on a very case by case basis and can only be bought when it makes sense like you are establishing an organisation or faction. You cannot possess sub-boards under this one and it will be exclusively an in-character board in the Realms of the PH Board.
All of these are related to trying to advertise your plots to members and make it more known, basically get the word around and try to drive up interest in something you are running or maybe you just want people to know about your character. Banners however are expensive as it requires the creation of a specific image and an admin to edit it onto the site.
Front Page Banner // 20000 credits
--A front page banner which can be designed to include information relevant to the site, usually about your own character and ongoings, that you'd like to get out there into the site in a customised way. This banner will remain up for a month but can be bought again.
Discord announcement // 5000 credits
--Much cheaper than a site banner and easier from a technical standpoint. You can purchase a discord announcement for advertising purposes and work up some attention for plots. Only one discord announcement can be bought a month.
Site Sidebar Ad // 13000 credits
--This can be bought and a small little icon and blurb can be written and put into the event sidebar. Due to the size constraits of the sidebar and avoiding it becoming too long, only one plot advertisement can be up at a time. It lasts for two weeks and will cycle onto the next person who had bought the sidebar ad.
Board announcement // 10000 credits
--A thread with all the information of what you are advertising can be made into a board announcement, this announcement will remain for a week to a month depending on how global the thread is.
