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

The Dedicated explained to Rilyn how there were different pieces, or threads, to the One Power. He tried to feel the difference Dedicated Ansalam was explaining, but he couldn't feel the threads.

"I can't feel them Dedicated. I can feel...something that could be the threads I think, but they don't feel any different from each other," he said disappointed.

At that point, he lost saidin, and jumped slightly at the loss.

The Dedicated looked at him, and said firmly, "Try again. I know you can do this, you did a good job so far. Try harder this time, really concentrate."

Rilyn closed his eyes, and imagined the flame, and this time saidin came easier. When he had a firm hold on it, he started pushing it, trying to feel the different sections. After about ten minutes, he managed to feel one that seemed warmer than the others. He tried to push it towards the logs, but it didn't move. He tried moving his hands at the same time, and all of a sudden, a small flame appeared on one of the logs.

"I did it Ansalam! I channeled!" he was so excited, he lost his grp on saidin and he forgot the title he was supposed to give the Dedicated.
