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

He'd waited silently, dividing his attention between the Soldier and the spar progressing in the Yards. As such, the menacing feel of saidin was not quite a surprise, nor was it alarming that it was there, then gone. Learning was difficult at the best of times. Tearing his attention from the combatants, he cleared his throat and answered, "That was, indeed, saidin. You nearly had it that time: would you like to try again? This time, do not let its appearance startle you: be on the watch for it. Stalk it. Trap it."

"Picture the woods, and saidin as a wolf that has been at your sheep. You wish to find it and trap it before it finds you...and kills you. Flush it forward, then seize it, and it will do as you wish. Stumble into its snare and it will not hesitate to leap at you." Grim picture, yes, but the thrill of hunting in the Shienaran woods was the only equivalent to the battle with saidin that Ansalam knew. "You must show it no weakness, and no quarter."

Fastening his intent attention on the young Soldier, Ansalam lounged a few hands away, wondering if the lad could replicate his feat.

Completely okay to be unable to - we'll just start working on removing your block, unless you care to roleplay that with another person.
