Title: Caste Petitions
Post by: Storyteller on Dec 06, 18, 08:23:50 AM
Petitioning for an Added Caste

There are countless reasons why existing characters might seek to train into an additional caste during the course of their stories. Perhaps they're looking for an edge for themselves, or perhaps their in-character development has awakened in them a calling towards a particular path. Writers of these characters may choose to submit a new application for an already-approved character, adding on a petition to justify the addition of a caste. The process for doing this is as follows:


Character Development
Caste training is a major development for any character to undergo and is not something that should be considered lightly, either OOC or IC. In-character, it's less like learning a new trade and more like assimilating into a foreign culture. The character doesn't just learn new skills, but their instincts and view of the world around them will change in response to the spiritual change happening within them. The rate at which these changes occur vary some from Blood to Blood. In general, some smaller changes are experienced somewhere between four and six months after beginning training. After a year, most Blood exhibit the full psychic scent and influence from their new caste. Below are some examples of the influences encountered in each of the castes.
