From Jedi Initiate to Jedi Knight, JEDl Order-Style

<THE JEDl ORDER> of Server Begeren Colony possesses a great deal of internal roleplay, and yours truly sees no reason to keep it private, when it can inspire others!

The Order has a well-developed set of advancement requirements to attain higher guild-ranks with us, and you can find out more about that by clicking here. Along the duration of advancing from Jedi Initiate to Padawan then Knight, each member finds a master to 'guide' them through their Padawan and Knight Trials. While there are many differences between the learnerships offered by the different Knights and Masters of our guild, yours truly wanted to share some of the sights that my own Padawans' experience as they complete a padawan learnership, as well as sights everyone's Padawans are prone to.

INITIATES' CEREMONIES

We JEDl host two weekly Initiates' Ceremonies each week: 1 on Saturday mornings, and 1 on Sunday evenings. While you do not need to join the guild at one of these, everyone is expected to go through one of these as a new-joiner at some point before advancing. They consist of three phases: Orientation, Force-Affinity Measurement Duels, and finally Induction.

Phase 1: Orientation

The Ceremony moves from Phase 1 to Phase 2.

Phase 2: Force-Affinity Measurement Duels

The ceremony moves from Phase 2 to Phase 3.

Phase 3: Induction

ACCEPTANCE

Acceptance of a new padawan for Master Ahlvis No'vaik is not completed in Teamspeak or even on our guild-site's forums; it is completed in-game and in-character.

SISTER GUILDS

To refer to JEDl is to intentionally or un-intentionally refer to a community of 5 guilds. Every now and then, cross-faction action tends to occur....

MASTER-AND-PADAWAN EXCERSIZES

Now, I can't speak for the rest of the guild's masters, but yours truly has 3 master-and-padawan excersizes, fully in-character, that Padawans complete in order to finish their learnership under my guidance. Here are some assorted pics:

It should be noted that the DARK JEDl are *NOT* a part of our community; whenever a Padawan completes the 3rd excersize, we invite anyone on Belsavis to head to the Green Matrix Shard before unlocking it.

PVP MASTER DUELS

Each of the 4 Schools that comprise the JEDl Order has a PvP Master. In order to become a Jedi Padawan from being an Initiate, one must duel and screenshot said duel against any of the PvP masters. In this case, since a PvP master was not online, yours truly was allowed to complete Ramus-cortan's duel, since I am the Headmaster of the Sage School.

KNIGHT INTERVIEWS

Held in a location of an aspiring Knight's choice, a panel of no less than 3 Masters/Elders/Arbiters/Councilmembers and whatever number of witnesses we can rally gather for a special pre-knighting interview. Each panel member asks a number of questions, and then the panel votes on whether or not to approve a Padawan for Knighthood.

While this thread is a poor summation of what it's like to actually go from Jedi Initiate to Padawan and then full Jedi Knight within the JEDl Order, it's still a good collection of screenshots and sights that one would experience in being with us.

Special mention to those who have become knights under my charge thus far: Vibius Maximus, Derc Denolo, Holywrath, Iso-Jor Accendere, and Arspoetica Ellisande. I expect Jia-wen and Mohiam to be joining this number any day now!

Art is a many-faceted thing; some of it is created and conceived by a single person, while some of it happens in the course of everyday life in a community.

You know what would make this topic really awesome? The ability to read what you posted. Your images have stretched the topic window out. Either Scale your images down or to just put them inside spoiler tags. Sadly this happens because BW has side-to-side scrolling disabled.

You've got to be kidding! It shows up fine on my computer, neither too small nor too large.

I'll have to come up with a solution another night, though; it's off to bed, here.

Thanks for saying something! I never would have realized it, otherwise.

Yeah man, the only way to really get it so I can actually read the text in your post is to force the browser to zoom out.

My suggestion like I said before, is to wrap your image tags inside spoiler tags. I would also link the images as well.

Example:

Hey! Thought this looked amazing, and the fact that you guys can get so many people to cooperate and show up at the same time baffles me haha. Of course, it might be because i'm on a PvE server, not RP.

Anyway, what I came here to do, is ask you if it would be possible for your to take a few screenshots for me during your next gathering, whatever it may be. I realize I may be asking for a lot here, but I am making a community thank your project and I am in desperate need of screenshots! If you were to take these for me, you would be credited (not in the long list of credited people, but in a seperate special thanks area)

What I was looking for is four screenshots, one concentrated on the center of a large group, one slightly further out, showing about half the group, one showing most of the group and then one final one showing the whole group. This would be like the one picture you have with no UI and no nameplates if possible =)

These would be the finale of my project and if you did this, it would make it 1000x easier for me. Considering my first plan was to get my guild to do it, but they're rarely cooperative, and there are only about 15 on at a time.

If you could do this, I would be extremely grateful!

Heres the link to the thread, if you're interested, we haven't gained much momentum yet, i'm hoping that will change

Still not seeing success with the Spoilers-suggestion, but at least the mouse-wheel scrolling is an option. Heh - I should really review my threads a little more-often than I do....

Still going strong, though, and our traditions are as-strong, as ever! Yours truly has a much better wardrobe now, though.
