Gran Voyages would be our version of story arcs of Anime with them needing multiple episodes for the plot to be settled. Gran Voyages grant default rewards like Beli, Bounty, Doriki, or
Prestige but they can also grant additional rewards if staff see fit. The higher the Level the Gran Voyage, the more reward types (Doriki, Prestige, Beli,) you can expect to get along with larger sums of these reward types.
Here on Strawhat there are 5 different types of Gran Voyages: Story, Item, NPC, Devil’s Fruit, and Turf. There are an array of rewards one can get from Gran Voyages. You'll find each possible reward you can get from a Gran Voyage type underneath their description.Story -

Sometimes we don't want to be in complete control of things in our Gran Voyages. You can opt to have None, Light, Moderate, or Heavy NPCing in your Gran Voyage. Choosing to have a level of NPCing will make it so someone not participating in your Gran Voyage, if not Staff someone they deem suitable if they agree, will post and change the flow of things. Of course these things will be reasonable, but it can make your Gran Voyage take an unexpected turn plot wise or even make foes more challenging to battle. Those who assist in NPCing Gran Voyages will be rewarded for their services, consult a member of staff if you wish to sign up to occasionally be asked to NPC scenarios. Light:
Light NPCing is more so prompt based NPCing. The NPC will post a general overview of what the NPCs of the topic are doing or of what is going on in the environment every 2-3 rounds of posting. NPC can be skipped.Moderate:
Moderate NPCing entails prompt based NPCing as well. However, the NPCer will more often take control of certain NPCs and potentially carry out more specific and personalized actions that are directed towards the topic's participants. Expect a post ever 2-3 rounds of posting. NPC can be skipped after 48 hours.Heavy:
Heavy NPCing is practically having a whole other PC in your topic, but they will also be in control of many other variables like the environment and other NPCs in the topic. If you opt for Heavy NPCing expect a challenge understand it is possible of your character can take substantial damage if there is combat. Expect a post every 1-2 rounds of posting. NPC cannot be skipped, so understand these scenario will take more time than usual to complete.
