Elder Rank

All ketucari have the potential to reach elder rank, regardless of their parents' social standing. Ketucari are typically at least half a century old before they reach this status.

Reaching Elder Rank

    To reach elder, your ketucari will have to meet all of the following requirements (both skill and theme):

Skill Requirements

Bullet; White Learn 3 physical attack skills
Bullet; White Learn 1 social skills
Bullet; White Learn 2 boon skills
Bullet; White Learn 2 exploration skills
Bullet; White Learn 2 talent skills
Bullet; White Learn 4 magic skills


Theme Requirements

Since part of the point of reaching elder is to help you tell your ketucari's story, you will be required to work 30 of the following themes into your group artwork. You may include them in adventuring, quests, etc., but you may only include one theme per piece. How you interpret the themes and the order in which you do them is up to you. There is much leeway with how you go about incorporating them into your ketucari's story. You may choose any 30 that appeal to you. 


When you have completed all 30, compile them in a journal or stash file with thumbnail links to the images as well as which theme they are. After you've met all the requirements for elder rank, visit the Matriarchs' Haunt to submit your ketucari for verification.

Available Themes

These themes have been compiled from various lists. You may choose to approach these themes as they are, or by depicting the opposite (for example, instead of depicting the gain of hope, you may show the loss of it). Opposites will be placed side by side.

Hello!
I was wondering if we would have to use an Elixir of Forgetfullness for learn Winter's Breath? Elder rank, you need to fill all 4 magic skill slots, but Winter's Breathe, which can only be learned after Elder rank (I think?), takes up a locked magic skill slot?
Thank you!
