Introduction

The highest achievement that (JAWA) Members can obtain through skill alone are the Elite and Master ranks. In the past, these ranks were merged into one, with a rank shakeup back in 2015, with the requirements for obtaining the Master rank being simplified. In the past, the trial masters had people passing two out of three or three out of five trials to obtain the Elite or Master rank, which was then later changed to having members pass a new series of trials, which they had to pass all four of in total. To take the trials, members also had to go through something known as The Cyan Trials as well, to show they were ready to take the Master Trials. Now, however, those seeking to obtain the Elite rank must undertake three trials, administered by those who have been trained and certified as Trial Masters by the (JAWA) Council and also recieved the rank of Guardian. To recieve the rank of Master, you must once again have the rank of Lord under your belt and have passed the Elite trials and this promotion will come automatically, with no need to retake the trials.

Each trial will vary in terms of its content and the standards required in order to pass. Trials may include tests of many different skills, including lightsaber combat, combat with ranged weapons, unarmed combat, various exercises in teamwork, ingenuity, athletic prowess, and general knowledge of the clan, its history, and the Force. Trialists will not know in advance what skills or knowledge will be required of them, and should not expect trials to be limited to the skills, abilities, or knowledge with which they are most familiar.

The number of Trial Masters is not fixed, but may include anyone who has the requisite level of training and judgment in the administration of trials. Trial Masters are not required to have attained the Elite or Master ranks themselves, but are chosen based on their knowledge and experience. Different Trial Masters may be assigned to specific trials based on their availability and interest. Trialists are not given the opportunity to choose the Trial Masters who will administer their trials.

The Leaders, Councilors, and Trial Masters are pleased to announce the Elite trials back open!

Trial Procedures

Those seeking to attain the Elite rank must reach the rank of Guardian within the clan before applying and be in good standing with the clan. Once an application has been submitted, the Trial Masters will assign the masters responsible for a trial, and attempt to schedule the three trials. Trialists are not required to schedule all three trials at once, or in any particular order. The results of each trial will not be announced at the end of the trial, but will be released after the other Trial Masters have had the opportunity to review the trial report and comment on it. Trialists will be notified of the results at that time, and trials passed will be noted on the trialist's WikiJawa profile.

Trialists must pass two out of three trials in order to earn the Elite rank. If a trialist fails the trials, he or she may apply to retake a similar trial from the same Trial Master (depending on availability), a minimum of one month after failing the trials. When the applicant has passed at least two out of three of the trials, a special ceremony will be scheduled for the bestowing of the Elite rank. If you have already obtained the rank of Lord at the time of passing the trials, you will be promoted to the rank of Master instead and the same goes for if you are already at the rank of Elite, when your Lord promotion is due, you will be promoted to the rank of Master without the need to retake your trials.


About the Trial Masters

Amongst the greatest honours accorded to members of the (JAWA) Clan are the ranks of Elite and Master. Anyone seeking these ranks must demonstrate both great skill and great commitment to the clan. Since the rebirth of the (JAWA) Clan in 2006, these members have had to undergo a series of Elite Trials, administered by members of the (JAWA) Council, whose own skills and knowledge of the game qualify them to stand as judges for those who desire to prove their ability.

At the beginning of 2006, the Elite rank was called Master, and applicants had to face all members of the council. However, in February the council appointed three Trial Masters to oversee and simplify the process. The first Trial Masters were HI, Shinobi, and Chrono. Since then, the rank of Master was renamed Elite, and Master reconstituted as a separate rank above that of Disciple. In June, 2007, the trials were administered by four masters. The following month, the clan briefly experimented with a system in which all council members administered trials. However, by the end of July, the council decided to revert to the Trial Master system.

The following members have served as Trial Masters since 2006. Those marked with asterisks (*) also held the ranks of Elite or Master during their time in the clan.
