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

Rilyn was about to start to try and channel some air, when someone poked her head into the room. The Dedicated told him to go ahead and try, so he started to imagine the flame. However, he noticed that suddenly it was a lot harder than it had been before.

That's weird, he thought, it wasn't this difficult before.

He tried harder, and managed to attain the void. However, this time, he was nearly unable to find saidin, and when he did, it wasn't the same, it seemed to be less. He tried to focus harder, thinking that was his problem, but he couldn't seem to grasp the One Power as tightly as he did before.

He looked at his instructor, confused, and asked him, "Why is it so much harder?? I feel like I can barely grasp saidin, let alone a particular thread."
