Welcome.

 

This board is used for two purposes:

 

1. Record Threads

 

Each character receives their own record thread within The Training Grounds.

It is in this thread that your character's progress is tracked, updated and approved.

This is also the place where any special approvals, personalised paths or special allowances are posted by the FL Staff.

 

Your job: every time you do an RP that is aimed at progressing your character, you need to post that in your character's record thread with a link.

 

The Training Staff will review your RP and, if valid, will validate your points and update the first post in the record thread.

Only after this has been done can you RP your character with its new status.

 

The record thread is a checkpoint for both you and the Training Staff on the status of your character, any special circumstances that are applicable to your character and what still needs to be done in order to achieve certain goals.

 

--> Pay attention to the information in the first post and work with your Trainers.

 

 

2. Interaction with Guild Trainers

 

On this board you can interact with the trainers from your Guild specifically on the progress of your character.

This can be to:

- ask for someone to RP a training session with you in order to progress to the next level

- ask guidance on aspects you are not entirely sure of

- discuss ideas for RP's with your character

- etc.

 

We ask that you do not spam this board. While we are very informal overall, this board is specifically for everything to do with progressing. So try to keep your conversations on topic.

 

For social interaction of any sort you can use the Dragon Reborn RP OOC board to your heart's content.

 

 

ATTENTION

 

All Freelanders members are expected and assumed to have familiarised themselves with the information on their Guild's website.

It is not the trainer's job to go over all that information with every member separately so please, take the time to read the site. A lot of work has gone in to creating it, so that you can use it.

Nothing upsets or frustrates a trainer more than realising that a person asking questions hasn't even bothered to read the information that is available. Yes, we can tell. Simply by the nature of your questions.

 

Read the Guild Sites!

Your trainers will thank you for it.

So you have made a character and would like a nice signature to go with it?

 

I have made a few hundred signatures that can be personalised for FL members.

 

You can pick one signature per FL character you have. Check out the FL Siggy List.

 

In order to claim your signature you must post here with the number of the siggy you would like and the name and Guild (Aiel, Seanchan, Kin, etc) of your character.

 

This is on a first come first serve basis.

 

To personalise your signature you can either ask in the Freelanders OOC board or go up to the signature board on the top of the main forum list.

 

Enjoy!

Children of the Light

 

Reporting Format

 

1. Title of Thread: You put in your character's first and last name and mention what rank you're working towards (not the rank you currently hold). Be sure to edit the title as you climb up the ladder of ranks. Keep using the SAME thread. We don't want to see one character with more than one thread.

 

Example: CotL Req's for Joran Dell - "Insert Rank"

 

2. Content of thread: When listing which requirements you've done or are currently working on, name the requirement, give a link to the RP and note the status of the RP.

 

For example:

 

Arrival Thread: [insert link] (Complete)

 

OR

 

Basic Training & oath: [insert link] (In progress)

 

Put clear separation between requirements for every rank.

 

Example:

 

"Insert Rank"

- Arrival thread: [insert link] (complete)

- Oath: [insert link] (complete)

- Character developement RP: [insert link] (complete)

- Class RP: [insert link]  (complete)

 

 

"Insert Next Rank"

- Character developement RP: [insert link] (in progress)

- Class RP: [insert link] (in progress)

 

 

This is just so requirements won't start getting mixed together.

 

 

 

Advancing Your Weapon Score

 

The WS ranges from 0, completely unskilled, to 20, for the most superlative fighter in the world. Note also that the WS system is nearly exponential; an increase of 1 WS is a doubling of the character’s skill, and also the amount of time spent to reach that level.

 

In the Children of the Light, raw Recruits will begin with a WS of 2. In the event of an exceptionally written bio, a character may be awarded with a WS of up to 4 for their Recruit. If a character is taking advantage of the amnesty and starting their character at the 2nd Tier, they may have a max starting WS of 7. Returning or Existing Children taking advantage of the amnesty are advanced to 3rd Tier, with a Max starting WS of 10.

 

The advancement programs within the Children contain requirements designed to help the character increase their weapon score, particularly those within the Army of the Light. You will be notified if your WS has increased after a required class. If you wish to increase your score beyond that, you must do roleplays on your own or with groups to increase it. Please contact the RP Group Leader for ideas and suggestions.

 

Some IMPORTANT clarifications:

 

1. Credit for the completion of a WS RP:

--Story must be completed and reported on your character's thread on the Progress Report child board. A RP can't count both for WS and RP character development, with the exception of a few Weapon-related required classes. So keep that in mind and specifically state so if you want it counted towards your character's WS.

--Minimum of 4 posts

--A Post must be at least 200 Words Long.

 

2. Every WS is specific to a weapon. If you have a WS of 10 with the axe, it doesn't mean you have a WS of 10 with a long sword.

 

3. You may RP using different weapons. However, you may only have one main weapon that will hold your highest WS. If you take on a secondary weapon it can only rise as high as 3 WS points less than your main weapon WS at any given time. If you take to a third weapon, then that one can go as high as 3 WS points less than your WS in your secondary weapon and so on.

 

Example: if your main weapon is a long sword and it stands at a WS of 9 currently, then if you take on a bow as a secondary weapon you can only go up to 6. Once you raise your WS in the sword you can raise up your WS in the bow. But always with a 3 WS points difference. This is done to prevent the creation of a super warrior that can use any weapon with a high proficiency.

 

4. All CotL characters are able to get as high as a WS of 14 in their main weapon. There is a limited number of slots for a WS of 15 and above. You may petition for a slot if you want to get across the 14 WS barrier, along with a detailed description of what RPs you plan to do with the increase in your character's proficiency. The CotL RGL will grant approval pending on availability and at his/her own discretion.
