This is me testing the shoutbox, because shouting is a great stress relief and it would be a shame if it doesn't work.

New Blood
« on: April 30, 2015, 03:24:16 PM »
The New Blood are considered to be the lowest rank within the tribe's structure. They are the newly joined recruits, still expected to prove themselves towards their peers and the tribe itself. An orc may be considered New Blood when he is formally accepted into the tribe by an Elder after a face-to-face meeting, sometimes informally referred to as an interview.

As the unproven fresh meat of the tribe, New Bloods are not allowed to wear the tabard of the Red Blades, and upon being accepted, they must seek a tutor to show them the ways of the tribe and orcish culture.

After a trial period in which the orc must gather three Marks of the Red Blade for completing their tutor's tasks or accomplishing noteworthy feats in the tribe's service, the New Blood will be reviewed and, if deemed worthy by both the Elders and his tutor, be given the chance to swear the Oath of Blood.

The Tutor & Trainee Relationship

As a trainee in the ways of the tribe, the New Blood's foremost duty is to listen and heed to everything his tutor says, and treat him with the respect he demands. Without the approval of a tutor in the end, the New Blood will not make any progress in the tribe whatsoever. The tutor will be the source of knowledge as the New Blood develops his reputation, increases his knowledge on the tribe and gets to know other orcs.

Once they have sworn the Oath of Blood, an orc may become a tutor to New Bloods himself. Though there is no formal limit to the number of trainees an orc may have, any more than three New Bloods at a time is likely to leave the tutor unable to make spare time for each orc in any given week.

Tutors are expected to show the trainee what it takes to be a true Red Blade. Whether this is through conversation, action or both will be up to the tutor himself to decide. The only official requirement is that the tutor gives the trainee at least one task in the trainee's time of service and is there to approve whether or not the trainee is ready to swear the Oath of Blood.
