Realm Information
WINTER
The Realms have revived themselves once more after fearful events at the last Gathering. They believed Kiroho had left them to fend for themselves, sending everyone into a spiral of despair. Summer brought more prey and raised some hopes, but along with it endless thunderstorms and homes collapsing. Now, winter has arrived, and prey is scarce. The temperatures range from 0-25°F, and it is recommended not to enter the frigid waters until spring.

HIGH RANK RULES
High ranks are a big part of the Realms. The King and Queen, who are above all and lead the Realm, the deputy/heir, who is the advisor and always sends out patrols and sets up other various activities, and the Healers, who have a vast knowledge of herbs and medicine to treat the Realm's injured and ill. If we have interesting, active high ranks, the Realms will do well. If we have bland, inactive high ranks, the Realms won't do well. High ranks need to be active, and it is required that they post once a week or more, unless you have told an admin that you will be absent for a certain amount of time, in which that case the ranks can be powerplayed. Members can have up to two high ranks per Realm, which would equal that you can have twenty-two high ranks in all. But, even though that is mathematically correct, we'd like to stay away from it so other members can have a chance as well.
It is encouraged that the high ranks are different, such as owning the Majani deputy and the Ngamia Healer's apprentice. You may only own two leaders at a time, but they must be in different Realms, such as owning the Maji Queen and Kupanda King. It is also recommended that you create a mini-plot for any high rank you own to drive the roleplay more, such as having the Majani deputy find out he has a long-lost sister in Kupanda. The ages need to be realistic, too, of course. Leaders should be 45 moons or older, deputies 35 moons or older, and Healers 35 moons or older. For Healer's apprentices, you must keep in mind that if they have a full name but are not a full Healer yet, they need an appropriate age. For example, if the Healer's apprentice in Ngamia was Gandalf, he'd need to have the usual apprentice age. When the Healer decides to give him a full name but doesn't retire yet, he should be at least 14 moons old.
Below are the open high ranks on AORIA. If you'd like to apply for an open high rank, you must private message [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on which position you'd like to take, and she will decide if you are experienced enough. If you are approved, you may post the audition in the regular forum. Only admins can accept high ranks!
