Apply for an Advanced Profession
Advanced Professions shouldn't ever be your character's end goal. In fact, most characters are unlikely to have even heard of most Advanced Professions. It is likely that if you are seeking an Advanced Profession, you're just as unlikely to get it. Most characters who achieve one of these professions end up stumbling into it rather than actively seeking it; remember that it is about the journey rather than the destination.
Above all, Advanced Professions are about roleplay. Simply purchasing the basic skill and profession prerequisites does not automatically entitle your character to learn an Advanced Profession. It can take months, or even years of roleplay before a character is considered qualified to receive an Advanced Profession - and even then there is still a long road ahead.
Learning an Advanced Profession requires more teaching time than normal - no less than 45 minutes of in-depth and interactive role play each month over a three month period. This represents the minimum time required; it is both common and highly encouraged for Advanced Profession training to take much longer, as well as involve activities such as joining secret societies, passing initiation ceremonies, undertaking dangerous tasks on behalf of their mentor and other daunting challenges.
An Advanced Profession is not easy to achieve, and most will fail. If you think your character epitomizes an Advanced Profession, the form below must be completed in full. The directors will review your application, no follow-up is needed once you have submitted this form.
To avoid forcing the player to metagame we do not discuss the testing with the player. We want the player to make decisions based on what their character would do, not what they think the 'correct answer' is to the test.
You may only submit a request for an Advanced Profession once per year.
