FAQ: Prestige Classes

====================================================
====================================================

Q: What is a Prestige class, and how do I get one?



A: Well, you may have noticed some AoF members running around with a {JG], a {JS}, or a {JC} at the end of their names.

Upon seeing this, you might ask yourself "What do these mean?"

Well, all three of those tags are indicators of a Jedi Knight's "prestige class". A prestige class shows everyone how a particular Jedi Knight has chosen to serve the AoF Jedi Order.

They are chosen at some period of time after ascension to Jedi Knight, {JK}, level. Of course, like everything in AoF, prestige classes have to be earned.

Prestige class tags are handed out by the Jedi Council only after the Jedi Knight has taken the particular trial associated with that class. In addition, only a Jedi Knight who has been given permission by The Jedi Council may train for a prestige class. Using DS/Other sabers and then claiming you're practicing for Prestige when you're caught won't work. You'll still face consequences.


A Jedi Guardian Knight, {JG}, is a Knight who has chosen to devote him or herself entirely to the art and science of the lightsaber. He or she follows the "Way of the Saber", and is usually the first to be called upon when the AoF Jedi Order participates in any "No Force/Saber only" competitions.

A Jedi Knight must face no fewer than three Council members, and will duel each Council member fourty-five times. This consists of 5 duels of each type versus each type. (EX: Single vs Single/Dubs/Staff, Dubs vs Single/Dubs/Staff, and Staff vs Single/dubs/staff)

This comes out to a total of one hundred and thirty-five duels, and in order to qualify for the class, must recieve a score of sixty-four percent or higher.




A Jedi Sentinel Knight, {JS}, is a Knight who has chosen to devote him or herself to finding the right mix of Force and Saber skill. He or she follows the "Way of Balance", and is devoted to both serenity and watchfulness. These Jedi Knights exist primarily to help others find balance, and this class can act as a waypoint to one of the other two, more specialized classes.

A Jedi Knight must face no fewer than three Council members, and will duel each Council member twenty-four times, involving six duels with each saber type, and six Full Force duels against a Dark Side using Council member.

This comes out to a seventy-two duels, and in order to qualify for the class, must recieve a score of sixty-four or higher.





A Jedi Consular Knight, {JC}, is a Knight who has chosen him or herself entirely to the study of the Living and Unifying Force. He or she follows the "Way of the Force", and constantly studies to find newer and better uses of the Force, for both attack and defense, and rarely use their lightsabers. When the AoF Jedi Order is called upon to compete in events that are "Full Force", the Jedi Consulars are the first ones on the scene.

A Jedi Knight must face no fewer than three Council members, and will face thirty "Full Force" duels against each Council member, with saber types opposing varied.

This comes out to a total of ninety duels, and in order to qualify for the class, must recieve a score of sixty-four percent or higher. The Knight is expected and required to use Single Lightsaber at ALL TIMES for this trial, and with this prestige class.




One must keep in mind that these prestige classes do not change the fact that one is still a Jedi Knight. Holding a prestige awards you only that, "prestige", and will not get you any other "perks", except for more responsibility. A Jedi Knight who holds a prestige class is not "higher" than any other Jedi Knight in the AoF Jedi Order, for the person is not yet a Jedi Master.

If anything, holding a prestige class is immersing yourself more into the Order, as a very specific responsibility is now placed upon you, to be an excellent saberist ({JG}), an excellent watchman ({JS}), or an excellent Force adept ({JC}).

A Jedi Knight may only hold one prestige class at any given time, and should they wish to switch their prestige class, they cannot switch back to their old one. Each prestige class overwrites eachother, as do the perks. (IE: You cannot be a Jedi Consular using Staff Lightsaber just because you were once a Guardian. Similarily, you may not be a Guardian using DS Force because you were once a Consular.)
