  1. Ok so it looks like with the move to the Clubs and the redoing of req information to point to the right threads, some bits of the process fell out. I for the love of me can't recall exactly what the prior to this one said exactly. We're reworking the reqs at the staff board at the moment, but for anyone ready to be raised at the moment, it should still be this:

     

    Once the Ajah / Disc you have aspired to has accepted you, the Ajah Head / Disc Leader must let the MoN/MaA know and then posts the announcement at the Hall.

     

    The MoN/MaA will then send an email to the Accepted / Manshima explaining the raising process.

     

    From Accepted to Aes Sedai:
    When you’ve met the requirements to be raised to Aes Sedai, the Mistress of Novices will e-mail you a request for sponsors*.

    You must find 2 sponsors*, one of which must be from your Ajah and the other from another Ajah.

    Once that request has been answered, the Amyrlin Seat will post your raising to Aes Sedai. After your sponsors have posted their letters of recommendation, you must swear the three Oaths.
     

    * Sponsors:
    A Sponsor is a full ranking member who will vouch for your fitness to be raised, so ideally they should have "worked" with you in their capacity as full ranking member.  Someone who's just been raised themselves therefore do not really qualify. Also, their testimony should be about what you've done to deserve being raised, not what a great buddy you are 🙂

    (Please note: The Amyrlin Seat, Keeper of Chronicles, Sword Captain, Mistress of Novices and Mistress at Arms may not be asked for sponsorship).

    My opinion: an epic is a rich, sprawling world...deep in character, setting, story, etc. The number of books does not dictate if a fantasy is epic or not. Sure, a world like that would most likely consist of many books, but it doesn't have to.

     

    That's what I would say too.

    And come again? Social clubs? School me on this. 

     

    There are various ones, like the White Tower & Warders, The Black Tower, Shayol Ghul, Ogier, etc.

    It's very difficult to explain to people what we actually do here. I'll quote the WT/W blurb for you - maybe that will help!

     

    The term "Aes Sedai" means "Servants of All" in the Old Tongue. The White Tower and Warders Social Group has used the philosophy of Servants of All to create a social setting based on the hierarchy, purpose and set-up of the White Tower and Warders in the WoT series. This inspires the way in which we interact and some of the activities which we organize, although we are a social community and not a role playing group.

    We offer people of varying common interests - related to the books or otherwise - a chance to find their niche with like minded people in one of the Ajahs or the Warders guild. Whether you become a Warder or an Aes Sedai (here males can be Aes Sedai and females can be Warders), at the White Tower and Warders Social Group, you can live out that philosophy and have fun doing it!

    You did if you clicked the "join club" button. If you didn't mean to, you can click the "leave club" button.

     

    Or you can actually just hang around. Usually we only pay attention to you if you actually signed the WT 101 thread *grins*

    I’m pretty sure I know where I’d like to be, but it’s not something we can declare until we are raised as a sister/brother.

     

    I can't find the "new" reqs anywhere! Can you point me to that, Phae?

    As far as I can recall, lately it's been that you could aspire to your chosen Ajah/Disc after you've completed a certain amount of reqs (as Accepted / Manshima). I believe there would be only 1 req left after that, which would be to lead an event for your chosen Ajah/ Disc.

    I have to be Accepted for three months...and I was raised to Accepted in September (I think).

     

    Aaah yes of course. I think we're in some kind of time warp this year - things FEEL like they either go much more slowly or much faster
