Becoming an Immortal -------------------- So you're thinking about applying to be a Celani? Well, before you do, you need to know what you're getting yourself into. First, a little history about why we have Celani is needed. To help with the transition from Mortal to God, we have two levels of immortals who are not Gods: Celani and Demi-Gods. One starts out as a Celani, is promoted to Demi-God, and from there, to Minor God. The word 'Celani' means 'Servant' in the immortal tongue, and that is quite literally what Celani are. They are there to spend some time serving Imperian, before gaining the power and privilege of being a full God. As a Celani, you actually have less power in a way than a mortal. If this doesn't sit well with your ego, you probably aren't cut out to be a God, as the Gods exist, from an out-of-character perspective, to serve Imperian as a whole. (Things are very different from an in-character perspective, of course.) Celani have no role but service, and the only reward for it, aside from the pleasure you might take in helping Imperian, or in building areas, is the chance to play a God later. You can't "play" Imperian as a Celani/Demi-God, and you're not even allowed to fraternize with the mortals, in the hopes that you will learn to stop thinking as a mortal and start thinking as a God. We don't mean to make it sound as if you're a slave, because some Celani really enjoy what they do, and work hard to earn the privilege of Godhood as quickly as possible. Others quickly flake out, discovering that we weren't lying about the work involved. For those interested, the guidelines below should give you an idea of what is required to make it from Celani to Minor God. Promotions For Celani and Demi-Gods ----------------------------------- 1) Celani to Demi-God Promotions. - Must provide regular help to Gods who request it, if you're able. - Must complete a small building project. There is no exception to this promotion requirement, as all Gods must have some building knowledge. - Must consistently demonstrate maturity, an ability to follow our rules meticulously, and generally have a good attitude. We want to work with people that are pleasant to work with. 2) Demi-God to regular God Promotions - Same requirements as Celani: Regular help, complete other projects. They do not have to be building projects, as we're also looking for roleplayers, coders, and people are are just creative in the way they would like to help make Imperian fun for all of its players. - What we really want to see here is that you've committed yourself to the Pantheon, and have undergone the appropriate paradigm shift from mortal to Immortal.
