NOVICE REQS - All Novices Please R&U!


Recommended Posts

The Reqs


  • STEP 1: Novice Quiz 

Ooc and must be completed BEFORE you start RPing :happy:

If you have not received it, please contact / PM me.


  • STEP2: The Arrival

Choose one of the following:

1. Meet the MoN: RP where the Novice first meets the Mistress of Novices. Make it clear whether or not your character has been tested.


2. Journey to the Tower:
RP the Novice's journey to Tar Valon and becoming a Novice as a solo RP or with a full Aes Sedai character.


  • STEP 3: One OP Class RP

This RP leads you to participate in an OP Class taught by an Accepted or Aes Sedai (more information about the classes here).

As you will read in that thread, the "Introduction to Saidar" may be divided into 4 threads but you only have to post 1 time in each of the 4 threads. Each post must have at least 250 words.


  • STEP 4: Two RPs

You have to choose two RP in the following list :


a. Meet the Roommate: RP where the Novice first meets Roommate (note: There will NOT be an official list of roommates)

b. Freeday: Organize an RP with 2 or more Novices or Accepted, about a specific activity that takes place during your Freeday.

c. Homesickness: Adjusting to life in the Tower, your character reflects on missing home. (How does she deal with the loss of her family?)

d. Chore RP: A chore given by either an Accepted or Aes Sedai - the chore must be role played.

e. Recovery: Your character must deal with a minor/major setback or loss and must find a way to deal with it. (Will she approach a fellow Novice or Accepted, Mentor or another Aes Sedai?)

f. Prankage: Your character has been involved in a prank of some kind! (How will you deal with it. Are you the prank-er or the prank-ee? Will your thread include an interview with the MON for punishment? (suggestion: you can do the Chore thread as a follow up on this.) Must be approved by Staff.

g. Create your own Character Centered RP: An RP that centers around your character and not someone else, in which you learn something important about yourself - Must be approved by Staff.

h. Novice Life: Organize an RP with 1 or more novice and Accepted about daily life in the Tower.

i. Introduction to Roleplaying Class: OOC - only once per person.


  • FINAL STEP: Three Arches

!!Only to be completed when previous Requirements are completed and marked!!




Please note that these are the minimum requirements. If you feel your character needs more fleshing out, or you simply love RPing this type of thing, you can do every single one there is, or post more than four times in a thread. Just please keep your RP partners in mind.

Length of the Novices' RP and posts


Usually, 1 RP = 1 thread


IF your Novice RP with other RPers:

  • minimum of posts per RP = 4
  • minimum words per post = 250
  • minimum words per RP = 1000


IF your Novice RP solo:

  • minimum of post per RP = 1
  • minimum of words per RP = 1000


Now, some classes are divided into multiple threads, like the "Introduction to Saidar" class which can be divided into 4 threads (1 thread for Air, 1 for Water, 1 for Fire and 1 for Earth). In this case, you can post once per thread to reach the minimum of 4 posts but you still need to write at least 250 per post and 1000 words in total.

Guidelines for Novices & Accepted

A. Emulation. Initiates do their very best to emulate Aes Sedai; you act as much according to the above principles as possible. Follow the above rules unless you have a compelling reason not to.

B. Free Time & Chores. Novices have one free day every two weeks, a week being ten days long, and they will also be subjected to chores. Accepted can guide their own studies to a greater extent. All initiates will be working hard. Your days are full; between classes you have chores. You will collapse into bed exhausted every evening, rise still worn out, and thank your lucky stars for every free moment.

C. Pranks. Pranks must be approved (OOC) by both the Mistress of Novices and the victim of the prank. Generally speaking an Accepted will be expected to show more maturity than a novice and therefore Accepted will be punished harder for pranking.

D. Curfew & Limits. Novices are not permitted to leave the White Tower and they must be in their quarters after 9pm in character time. Also, novices may not channel without supervision. Accepted may visit Tar Valon between 10am and 2pm in character time, but they must be in their quarters after midnight. Anyone breaking these rules in character will be caught in character and punished in character.

E. Diligence & Dedication. An average initiate spends ten years as a novice and ten years as Accepted. Once you have committed yourself to twenty years of a harsh, dedicated life you know you want to become Aes Sedai and you are willing to do anything to become Aes Sedai. Study hard.

F. Relationships. Novices are not allowed to interact with members of the Warders Division except when ordered to by an Aes Sedai. If they are caught in the Warders” Yard they will be punished severely. Accepted may go to the Warders” Yard if accompanied by or at the order of an Aes Sedai or when training with the Warders; since they emulate Aes Sedai they will behave with proper discretion and restraint.

G. Timeline. All Novice and Accepted RPs are done in Retro. That means that all your RPs take place long before the current Time Line of the PSW. Please bear this in mind when planning RPs, especially with full ranking characters (Aes Sedai) or members of other Divisions (who mostly do NOT RP in Retro). Certain things will not be known about or have happened yet in Retro, like Forkroot, the Dragon being reborn, the Black Tower, etc.
