Subj: City Novicehood Is Here!

City Novicehood has just been released!

Here is what has changed:

* All existing guild novices have been converted to city novices. The time remaining left in their novicehood depends on their level.

* The Mockers have retained guild novicehood only for existing novices, so nobody suddenly gained access to guild secrets who should not have. Please work to promote these players as soon as possible.

* New players joining a city will be city novices for 10 hours of non-idle playing time.

* Ambassadors can CITY PROMOTE <novice> to promote a novice 1 hour towards graduation. You can also CITY PROMOTE <novice> FULL to promote them entirely out of novicehood.

* Ambassadors can CITY STATUS <novice> to see how much time is remaining.

* City novices can CITY STATUS to see their own time remaining.

* Thesas is still in use until we get the mobs for each guild and clan finished, but he will no longer induct city novices. He will retire in the near future.

* Thesas will no longer induct players into the Mockers at all, but will let Krondorian citizens know about their existence.

* Each city has a unique title for their city novices:

* Elvandar: Youngling
* Krondor: Serf
* Sar-Sargoth: Honorless

* Contact me if you are the CL and want the title changed.

* GNT no longer exists, except for the Mockers and Stardock.

* Guild Promote similarly no longer exists, except for the Mockers' existing guild novices.

* I decided not to introduce a CNT channel, since I don't want to strip an existing channel away from players.
