Professions - Leveling & Guidelines

Post by Yggdrasil on 11/1/2016, 11:36 am

There are four (4) levels in the Professions system - all characters automatically start at Lv1. If you would like to upgrade your character, you can do so at any time so long as you have at least one Profession Upgrade Scroll in your OOC inventory. If you would like to create a new character in a profession starting higher than Lv1, you will need the appropriate number of scrolls to do so.

Profession Upgrade Scroll - This item is required to upgrade a character's profession. Profession Upgrade Scroll - This item is required to upgrade a character's profession. Profession Upgrade Scroll - This item is required to upgrade a character's profession.
One scroll will level up a character once. Every scroll is once use only.
You can earn these scrolls either through participating in special events or by ranking up.

Level 1 - None/Commoner
Unless at least one profession scroll is used, most characters should start off as a person with no reputation. Friends, family, and those who have personally met and interacted with Lv1 characters may know them by face and name, but they pass through most places unknown. Any personal achievements or accomplishments, regardless of significance, are either not publicly attributed to them or they haven't received recognition yet for them.

Level 2 - Local
These characters may be recognized in small areas, such as villages or cities, especially those where they spend most of their time. They might have done something to win an important person or NPC's favor - such as a heroic or infamous deed - and they are starting to build a reputation for themselves. Depending on how their players want to run it, their characters should be recognized either by name or face in the area that they influence the most. However, beyond the place of influence, their accomplishments should remain unknown. For example, a mercenary that has helped out a lord might be recognized by the lord and his people.

Level 3 - Regional - You may claim an in-character title. See below.
The reputation of these characters has spread to affect a large area - depending on the desire of the players, their character could be recognized by face and/or name in an area as large as an entire kingdom. These characters tend to be in positions of importance or significance and their face and/or name should be familiar to those that it most reasonably influences, i.e. students in Herrat should know the name of a Provost in Herrat, but a citizen of Sauria might not know the same Provost.

Level 4 - Worldly - You must submit an extensive storyline for evaluation and a DM thread in order to receive a Lv4 upgrade!
Characters that reach the final level of reputation should be known throughout the world - their name might come up in places they have not gone before. While some people, especially hermits or reclusive settlements, might not recognize the name and/or face of these characters, they tend to be in songs or stories, or at least are talked about in the appropriate areas of influence. For example, the Allking of Borys is considered a worldly character.

This is just a guideline - the staff will use their own discretion to judge character professions to what they are closest to since players can virtually play any sort of profession or class they want with their characters. * "Politics" is not to be confused with "Nobility" - not all noble characters are in a political profession. See more information about the structure of nobility at the Nobility & Classes of Tur lexicon page.


If you are creating a new character, you do not need to reply. Staff will talk to you about any upgrades that need to be done.

If you want to change your character's profession, you can reply to this thread with the following form. Significant industry changes require you to roleplay the transition, in-character, beforehand. You can only change your character's profession once every two months, but there is no restriction on how often you can upgrade their profession.
