Advancement

Advancing in Casa di Cavalieri

Advancement in Casa is in the hands of the player. Simply find your rank below and read the requirements. If the requirements are just activity or time based, Leadership will automatically move you to your new rank at the end of the month. If stated, PM the Casa Leadership Account with any requirements you have completed.

Advancement Threads do NOT need to be archived before submission.
Any thread made post-joining is acceptable for any required threads for advancement UNLESS your character has been aNPCed for over 3 months. If your character has been aNPCed for over 3 months then all submitted promotion threads must take place after pick up.
A thread for a rank requirement is considered complete when you reach 3 posts or 900 words, whichever comes first, focusing on the action (training or the skill needed for a Co-rank).

Rank Checks

Casa di Cavalieri's leadership perform activity checks at the end of the month to base advancement off of where activity numbers apply. Rank changes only occur at the end of the month or within the first few days of the new month. If your desired rank requires a PM be sent in with requirements (ex. training thread or Co-rank threads), please PM a rank request to the Casa di Cavalieri account anytime during the month. If a request is required but is not received at least five days before the end of the month, it is not guaranteed that your application will be reviewed in time for the end of month rank check. Promotion requests that are not submitted on time may result in delayed promotion by a month.

If multiple Brotherhood members are working towards the same rank, that position will be frozen at Leadership's discretion and competing members will be informed, allowing sufficient time for them to work on their activity and related threads. The rank will be granted to the member that the leadership chooses to have the better combination of activity, quality threads, and consistent development proving their character is suited to the desired rank.

Promotion and Demotion is not applicable.


NPC Advancement

NPC characters can work their way through our ranks just like your own character! In order to get your NPC promoted, they must complete all promotion requirements. For example, they must be featured in 5 or more posts in a month to move from First Cadet to Second Cadet, and, to earn a Co-rank, they must be heavily featured in the completion of 2 challenges.

For threads to count for an NPC promotion, the NPC earning the promotion must be heavily featured in all posts, not just referenced. You may choose to write half your post from that character's point of view. If your posts are found not to feature your NPC enough, Leadership will request additional posts to be made in order to meet the requirement.

Leadership will only automatically promote NPCs out of the Recruit Rank (i.e. after 2 months of membership). Otherwise, all other NPC promotions MUST be requested via PMing the Casa Account, including links to all requirements. Please be sure to include direct links to all requirements. This means you should link the character's required posts for activity-based promotion as well.

yNPCs may NOT be ranked up in this manner; they must be adopted out and ranked up accordingly. pNPCs will be promoted at the discretion of Leadership over time.
