Section II, Characters

Official Teachers are special
characters dedicated to teaching other characters various skills and powers.
While non-official teacher characters can still teach, they do so at
considerable burden to themselves, with greater limits, and with fewer results.
The benefits of an Official Teacher
are as follows:
- Teach multiple students (up to 30)
- Teach techs faster
- Ability to train other characters'
PLs up very quickly, and with different methods than simply sparring.
- More creative liberties for
Each player may not own more than one
active Official Teacher at any given time, with the exception of canon (source)
characters granted to a player, which do not count. A character can simply stop
being Official Teacher one day, and another can simply start again, after
following below procedures. However, a player may not flip-flop between Official
Teachers as they deem fit. An Official Teacher should remain in that status for
at least 2 months before resigning the status again.
Official Teachers can be any kind of
character, from mortal to competitive to non-competitive, and even plot
characters and dead characters (in the afterlife), as long as that character is
approved, where necessary.
Once a character is declared as an
Official Teacher, the benefits that come with the title do not take place until
the character's player has a teaching regimen approved by the staffers. A
teaching regimen is a mapped-out plan of how the teacher goes about teaching
students. It consists of a timeline, punctuated by points in time where a
student character learns skills and gains power, as well as undergoes training
RP. Training RPs are the key to reducing overall training time -- the more of
them there are, and the more creative they are, and the more well related they
are, the more likely the training time of techs and PL will be diminished.
Teaching regimens are approved simply by presenting them to a staffer (no formal
application is required). The staffer will lay down to you what kind of speed of
progress you can expect when you present the regimen.
All techs taught must be already
completely mastered by the teacher, and approved. Any PL types taught or given
must be also had by the teacher. Items, of course, may not be taught (though
techs that make items may be).
