Grey Tower Raising Requirements
From The Grey Tower Library
To be raised from one rank to the next, regardless of group:
1. Complete five (5) items from the list below (These items should show development of your character's skills, maturity, and depth)
2. Submit for approval
3. Write your raising test
Restrictions / Specifications on #1:
- Non-channelers must have 2 battle-related* items; channelers must have 2 channeling-related items
- This could be earning Talent/Weapon Skill points, earning a channeling or battle-oriented Mastery, or just straight up channeling/fighting with nothing gained but character development.
- Accepted / Dedicated must have at least one Ajah choice-related item
- Items cannot be "doubled" (i.e. you can't take a class to get skill points AND class credit; it has to be one or the other)
- At least one item must be an interactive RP (i.e. not a fanfiction or a class)
- All items must be a minimum of 1000 words / 200 words per post.
- OP Strength and Affinities must be finalized before being raised to full rank.
- Instead of a formal raising test, Westlanders will simply write a similarly-lengthed character development fanfiction, to be judged by their relevant administrator.
List of items:
- Write a thread, class, or fanfiction where you earn Talent point(s)
- Write a thread, class, or fanfiction where you earn Weapon Skill point(s)
- Write a thread, class, or fanfiction where you earn Special Ability point(s)
- Earn a Mastery
- Write a general RP thread
- Write a fanfiction
- Participate in an MRP
- Clarification after many questions: Every 5 posts of 200 words or more counts as a fulfilled requirement. The "no doubling" rule still applies.
- Take a class (archived or active)
- Write a NEW class
- Teach a current class, with 2 passing students
- Other items as agreed upon with admin
Once you are ready to be raised, complete this form to submit your raising requirements for review.
