As you know, our beloved Daruya has stepped down as Keeper of the Chronicles, and we are in need of a new one.
I urge all full Aes Sedai who qualify per the short list, to apply.
Below is a long list of duties which would be preferred of the Keeper, but the following short list is what is essential:
1) I must be able to put my trust in you.
2) you need to be organised, detail-oriented and preferably know how to work with google docs (though the latter is easily learnt), as your job will be mostly "secretarial / personal assistant".
3) You need to have a mature and stable personality (the opposite of me, therefore :P)
Here's the long list:
I. Assistant to the Amyrlin
a. Serve as the Amyrlin’s back-up when she is away or unable to fulfill her duties.
