Welcome to One Power Basics. This is where you will learn some fundamental weaves with each of the five Powers - the bare bones of channeling. These will be one-on-one lessons, written specificly to meet your needs while teaching you.

The class is supervised by the Mistress of Novices and Master of Soldiers.

The teachers, usually one Accepted and one Dedicated, are chosen on a rotational basis. Contact Elyscia Mordel Sedai or Anahi Asha'man if you are interested in helping teach this class.

To join the class, post to the sign-in sheet and then please post a message in which your character arrives in the private classroom in the lessons thread. Good quality of roleplay is expected, as are posts of decent length. One Power Basics is meant to meet four simply goals:

-to evaluate a student's current knowledge of the One Power

-to explain the differences between saidar, saidin and the Five Powers

-to walk a channeler through touching the True Source for the first time

-to walk a student through channeling for the first time.

If the student already knows how to channel, then they should demonstrate their proficiency by preforming a simple weave.

In order to pass this class the student must make 6 posts of 200 words each, minimum. Once a student has completed the class, their teacher will send him/her a certificate, so that it can be used as a raising requirement.

That said, this class is meant to be enjoyable. This is also a good time for the instructor to put any fears or concerns a new channeler may have about the One Power more at ease. I hope you have fun! If you have any questions, feel free to email the Mistress of Novices or Master of Soldiers

Firen put her doll carefully back on the shelf above her bed and smoothed it's skirts.

"I'll be back soon, Else. I'll tell you all about it."

The wooden toy regard her impassively. The Mistress of Novices had said she could keep it, but only in her room. Else wasn't allowed in any of her classes or when she was helping in the kitchens, so Firen had to tell her everything that had happened when she got back in the evenings. She had also said that the young Domani was ready to start channeling the One Power! Firen smiled in anticipation as she left her room and made her way out of the novice quarters and into the long corridor which joined the classrooms. Firen was the youngest novice in the Tower, and she looked it. Traces of baby fat were evident in her cheeks and her hazel eyes were always alight with a childish glee. She was also unused to wearing the long white dresses they had given her, and tripped occasionally as she skipped down the hall.

Firen knocked on the large wooden door and went in. The room was empty, as she had expected. The Mistress of Novices had told her an Accepted would meet her here, but Firen was early. She had been in the Tower for nearly a whole week and this was her first channeling class.

She picked a seat and carefully placed the candle she was holding on a table. Laela Sedai had told her to bring one so she could show the Accepted what she could already do. Firen watched the door impatiently. She had missed doing her fire tricks, and she was eager to learn more.
