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

Perhaps Just the Pretty Ones?

"I don't think they can. They don't bother me at all," Ansalam blurted, a faint red creeping up his cheeks. There had been that red-haired one that had caught him in a corner and taunted him - she'd bothered him for a good few weeks now, and he'd only met her the once. But such affections were trivial and came and went at will, and he'd been able to channel once she stopped teasing him. "Maybe just the pretty ones?" he asked, his eyebrows arched quizzically. "I mean, some of them bother me enough for me to not think of channeling...but if I concentrate, I can always reach saidin."

"So I believe we must now go and find a pretty woman, and one that isn't. Perhaps we should start with any woman. I will take you to the classroom, and we'll see if you can channel at all near the girls." He led the young man down the hall, his eyebrows furrowed together like mating beetles. This was puzzling: a student on the cusp of graduating suddenly struck by a lessened ability? He had never read about that. What could be wrong, and could it be catching?

He could channel in the room, though, and it was positively bristling with young women. Novices in tears at tables, Novices bouncing with glee, Accepted tired and fresh, bubbly and bland. None were too plain, but a few were so average that the truly pretty, like Anjolie, stood out like gems in a crown. Leading the boy over, he gestured to a table which had a few young Novices seated at it, passing bits of a weave to each other in practice under Iris's watchful gaze.

"Try here," he said. "Then try and take the weave from the ladies - it's a simple enough little task. You'll do it automatically with saidin as long as you want to and she wants to give it to you."
