A Guide to Leveling Up

An out-of-character (OOC) guide to leveling up skills. These guidelines are designed to assist moderators and players in understanding what is expected in order to level up a Skill.

Contents


[top]The First and Second Levels

The first two levels of a Skill are the most straightforward to level up. Simple possession of the requisite experience in the skill is enough to justify the level up in these cases, as the first and second levels are obtaining basic and workable proficiency in the skill.

For a level 1 skill you require a minimum of 2 total experience points in the skill.

For a level 2 skill you require a minimum of 6 total experience points in the skill.

[top]The Third Level

The third level of a skill also has an experience requirement but also adds the requirement of a level up thread, which becomes the trend for future leveling up.

For a level 3 skill you require a minimum of 12 total experience points in the skill.

A Level 3 level up thread requires that the character demonstrates a veteran's level of ability in the applicable skill. The fundamentals and basic techniques of the skill should now be put together well enough to create more advanced results. A facile and natural use of the skill should now be in play and the character should be clearly showing the development of a personal style in utilizing the Skill.

[top]The Fourth Level

The fourth level of a Skill has an experience requirement and a level up thread requirement.

For a level 4 skill you require a minimum of 24 experience points in the skill.

A level 4 level up thread requires that the character stretch the limits of their ability in the applicable skill. Techniques that were advanced before are now straightforward and easily used and the character's personal style should now be developing into an area of undisputed expertise and specialization. Experimentation and pushing the limits of the skill are the hallmarks for this level.

[top]The Fifth Level

The fifth level of a skill has an experience requirement and a level up thread requirement. Additionally the level up thread, while able to be handled by any moderator, must be pre-approved by the Management Team and the final sign-off requires their stamp. As a character can only have a single skill at the fifth level and as the fifth level is a highly prestigious accomplishment, one should choose wisely before beginning this endeavor.

For a level 5 skill you require a minimum of 36 experience points in the skill.

A level 5 level up thread requires that the character demonstrate a transcendent dominance in the Skill. At this point the character's specialization should be clearly articulated and their contributions to stretching the possibilities of the art should be prominent and substantial. Fifth level level up Threads may in fact be compound in nature and require the culmination of a few separate story threads to fully justify the label of transcendent capability in the Skill. Failure and diversion from this goal is not only possible, but may in fact be probable depending on the character's devotion and commitment to the skill.
