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.

    IMPORTANT: The point of the levelling system is to encourage activity, to give your characters goals to work towards and to place them in situations they may not normally find themselves. The point of this system is not to satisfy as many requirements in as short a time as possible. To this end, while threads can often satisfy multiple requirements, individual actions cannot.

    For example, as an attuned you might create a new thread during one of the seasonal events in a board that you have never been in before, with a character you have not met. This would satisfy the 1. Explore a New Board requirement and 2. Meet a new race requirement. However, as you are in your animal shift, it could also satisfy the 'complete a stage of a seasonal event in your animal shift' requirement, OR 'complete a thread entirely in your animal shift' requirement, but not both.

    The general rule is that your racial requirements should each take their own thread to satisfy. If you ever have questions, please post int he help-desk!

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


    NOTES

    • Characters under the age of 16 cannot level. They begin and remain at level 0 until they reach age 16, at which point all previous threads can be considered towards level requirements.
    • RANDOM EVENTS: 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.
    • DEITIES: 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.
    • SHRINES: You cannot 'explore' shrines; they do not count towards levelling requirements. Visiting a shrine should exclusively be for the purpose of praying to gods. Your character does not need to be the one praying at a shrine, so long as a prayer is made by someone in the thread.
    • You cannot 'explore' guildboards; they do not count towards levelling requirements.
    • SITE WIDE EVENTS (SWEs): Participation must be done IC (OOC threads/posts do not count)
    • Threads written with your own characters may count towards each character’s overall post count, but do not satisfy any other levelling requirements.
