Character Levelling
    Character leveling is a system meant to encourage and reward exploration of the world and its inhabitants. While there are general leveling requirements which apply to all, there are also race-specific requirements that confer their own unique rewards.

    Note: Threads written with your own characters can count towards each character’s overall post count, but cannot complete other requirements (i.e., you may not submit a board exploration as a leveling requirement if only your characters are involved in the thread).

    Once you have completed a level, please post here with all the relevant details to have your level updated!


    Exceptions

    • Characters under the age of 16 cannot level. They begin and stay at level 0 until they reach 16, at which point all previous threads can be put towards level requirements.
    • A random event must entail an actual encounter; environmental effects, noises, and unanswered prayers do not count as RE interactions for the purpose of levelling.
    • The deity requirement should not be a thread where your character has minimal involvement. The point of this requirement is to make you engage with the deities of the site, not to simply watch an interaction happen.
    • Exploration Tags cannot be used in shrines. Visiting a shrine should exclusively be for the purpose of praying to a god(s). Shrines also do not count towards the "Explore every area of a board" levelling requirement.
    • Guildboards do not count towards the "Explore ever area of a board" levelling requirement and cannot be explored.
    • SWE participation must be done IC (OOC threads/posts do not count)
