Eldering, the how to?

Post by Varnak_the_UnNamed » 2013-08-22

Alright my fellow Darkonians I have a question about eldering.

We (Ched Nasad) have a number of players in and out on injury and I was wondering what it takes to elder other than being present and volunteering. The reason I ask is that we have new people, old people, vets, etc. Is there a training program for eldering? Is there a minimum time played, etc?

Thanks

From the rulebook, page 9
Elders
Elders are responsible for running all events smoothly and act as the ‘referees’for combat. Each Elderisrequired to wear a plain white tabard with the word ‘Elder’ printed on the front. Any decision made by an Elder on the battlefield regarding the day’s event or combat must be listened to and followed; any disputes should be brought to the Magistrate. There are no permanent Elders in Darkon;they will vary at every event.

Elders will levy penalties for infractions of the rules such as, but not limited to, ignoring the safety of others, acting out of character,refusing to take legal hits, and circumventing the rules. Penalties can include extra time in Hades and withdrawal of fighting privileges for the rest of the event. Participant who are persistently dangerous and/or frequently break rules will find themselves suspended or expelled from future participation in the game.

Any participant who has at least 31 battle credits and has been approved by the Magistrate may serve as an Elder. Every country must offer at least one member to act as an Elder at each event. It is the duty of all veteran participants to serve as an Elder periodically. The Magistrate or Event Elder may enforce the one Elder per country rule if he deems it necessary.

Look at you with the rulebook and stoof. I must have missed the 31 credits and such. So level 6 or above? that seems really low, but ok. so no training huh? no bootcamp for eldering.. might explain some of the calls on the field.. :P

Yep be lvl 6 or greater and have a decent understanding of the rules. No one knows all the rules at any given time, but you should have a good grasp of them. Any person I see eldering that is consistantly misquoted on the rules or giving out bad information Ill recommend that the Magistrate has a talk with them, or ensures they spend more time in the game before they elder again.

Fair enough. Seems like a legit way to keep in the game when you physically cant participate in other ways. Thanks for the clarifications.

This is pretty much it.

31 battle credits and knowing the rules and how things flow.

Some people wouldnt listen to a spanking new 31 credit Elder, but not listening to an elder is cheating... so theres that...

What "Eldering" really is:
1: Being able to keep Darkonians on task.
2: having the "eggs" to call out someone who's doing it wrong.
