An Introduction to Training
In this group, characters that are the rank of apprentice and cub have to fill out specific tasks before they can be promoted to their next rank. Originally, when EBC first opened, the main requirement for these tasks was to draw or write your character completing three to five training assignments depending on their rank. We realized, however, that asking members to complete these tasks, sometimes took much longer than needed to get done; forcing characters to age up incorrectly compared to the rest of the group.
The new system now allows members to advance through their ranks a little bit easier, helping you keep your character aging up in time with the group while still giving you the same opportunities that you got with the old system. It allows you to get your things done in a timely manner and keeps you from gaining death strikes whenever an admin feels that you need to rank your character up.:bulle
