TarValon.Net Library Resources - Novices & Recruits
Welcome back to the TarValon.Net Library Resources series. Our previous Editor, Atarah al'Norahn began this series back in 2019. She shared with us resources for The Brown Ajah, the San d’ma Shadar Company, the Citizens of TarValon.Net, Accepted & Soldiers and The Gray Ajah. Today we continue this tradition by sharing with you the TarValon.Net Library Resources for (and about) Novices & Recruits.
Novices & Recruits at TarValon.Net
When Citizens apply to join the Tower, they must choose between becoming a Novice or a Recruit. TarValon.Net does not apply any restrictions to either path and encourages all members to choose whichever they are more comfortable with. The Membership Manual for Novices and Recruits contains a wealth of information. The Membership Administrator for Novices and Recruits is the Master/Mistress of Novices and Recruits. They are the first port of call for any and all questions that new Tower members may have. The current Mistress of Novices and Recruits is Qamra Daielin. Qamra can be found in The Mistress of Novices and Recruits Office, and for the latest scoop on the MoNsteR check out our most recent Member Spotlight.
Upon joining the Tower, Novices and Recruits will be assigned two Mentors! Where possible there will be one from each path (an Aes Sedai and a Gaidin) who will guide and support the member through their raising to Accepted/Soldier then Aes Sedai/Gaidin. For more information about the next step towards Senior Membership refer to the “next step” section in the Membership Manual.
