IC Promotions – how do they work?


The below details only the minimum requirements. This means that those who have the decision of whether to promote your character or not can still have you linger at your current rank, or, should you decide for your own character's purposes to leave them at the current rank for the sake of the story, that is acceptable (and often encouraged) as well.


So let's move on to how it actually works!


RANK ADVANCEMENT


Starting Characters
  • All new characters start out at the beginner rank (also known as apprentice, padawan, trainee, and other names).
  • Force Users may choose up to 3 Force Powers from the beginner rank.
  • While training with a trainer/master is always suggested, it is no longer mandatory. Just make sure to have backup for your IC abilities beyond the starting kit through your RP's. Staff and other members have the right to ask for proof of learned Force Powers at any given time.
Promotion to Knight Rank


To be eligible for the Knight rank, you need:
  • A minimum of three (3) completed threads.
  • At least one of the threads must include your character learning new Force Powers.
  • At least one of these powers must be a Knight level power.
Send a PM to your character's faction staff representative and include the links to all the threads you want them to review.  Once the staff representative approves it, your character will be placed in the Trophy Case. This means you have OOC permission to level up.  In order for the promotion to take effect IC, you must complete a knighting thread. There are many ways to go about this; talk to your staff representative and other people on the site for ideas or suggestions.


Promotion to Master Rank
  • Complete a minimum of 10 additional threads. The threads must have started after you received your permission to level up. If you transferred from another site, you need a total of 13 threads.
  • At least 1 thread must include your character learning new powers.
  • At least 1 of the new powers must be a Master level power.
Your Knighting thread may be included in the count for the total of 10.


Send a PM to your character's faction staff representative and include the links to all the threads you want them to review.  Once the staff representative approves it, your character will be placed in the Trophy Case. This means you have OOC permission to level up.  In order for the promotion to take effect IC, you must complete a thread showing your character's ascent to master.


What is the definition of a completed thread?


If it is a closed/invite only thread, it needs to be completed. Completed threads receive a “COMPLETED” added to their titles.  In case of an open thread, your character needs to participate in it enough for it to matter (making a single post to have it count won't work here) and then make it clear that it is done within the thread, whether IC or by adding an OOC comment that they're done with the thread.


While it is not mandatory, most of our members choose to create Thread Trackers for themselves, placed in the factions their character belongs to.  Once you have completed your 3, 10 or 13, send a PM to your faction staff representative and include your beginning rank and the rank you wish to advance to.  When the rank advancement is approved, it will appear in the Trophy Case!


Happy RP'ing
