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

A Special Lesson
Accepted Sora (NPC)

Sora had been pacing nervously in her room while she waited for the young Novice to come. Her dark thoughtful eyes scanned the room constantly, taking note of little things that she'd hardly had the time to take note of... one of the floorboards stuck up slightly above the others, a splinter was dangling from the edge of a nearby chair. She'd thought about what she knew... she'd seen Firen through the tower, everybody had noticed her. She was the subject of many curious glances, so Sora was glad for the chance to finally see her up close, to see if she really was as young as she appeared.

The bell tolled the hour and she glanced wearily at the door... she didn't come. So she was late. Sora waited impatiently as the minute hand of the clock ticked off slowly more minutes. What in the light was she waiting for? She heard a click of a doorknob and an Accpepted and a Novice wandered in... but she was sure that the other Novice was certainly not Firen...

"Blood and ashes!" was all Sora cried out as she pushed her way past the bewildered pair and pushed her way into the ajacent room, where the young novice was already waitin.

She was late... but it wouldn't do to act late. She needed to act as though this was her plan all along.

"Good, you're here," she said with apparent ease, though she still shifted around nervously. "I'm Sora, and I'll be teaching you how to channel today, but I'm told you already know a little bit," she noted the candle. "So, why don't we start there."

She didn't want her to see that she was nervous... how long had this poor girl been waiting? She'd been such a light blinded idiot... waiting in the wrong room. Blood and bloody ashes...

OOC Okay, sorry I took so long getting to this. Apparently the e-mails from here don't get sent to my e-mail, so I didn't notice that I'd owed any additional posts. But now that I've posted I'll be much more prompt in getting to you.
