Being an ambassador is the first phase of immortality.
LEVEL: Ambassador PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY: Helping new players learn and understand basic mudding/TFC survival, answering questions from newbies. SECONDARY: Learn the basic tenets of Demigodhood, ask questions about and learn god-rules. Get a feel on what it is to be a TFC immortal.
Becoming an Immortal on TFC requires a significant amount of time and interest. Before a mortal may petition for Immortality they must demonstrate a level of familiarity with the mud as shown by the following table: Single Class Dual Class Triple Class Reach Effective Level 30 40 50 Complete Mobmastery Level 50 50 40 Those mortals that are effective 30th and higher may read the Immortal Rules, which treat this subject in more depth and explain the further requirements. These Rules are available by the command 'rules', or by HELP RULES.
Promotion from Ambassador to Attendant requires several hours of "TFC community service" as an ambassador. The number of hours are determined in part by factors from your mortal existence. Generally speaking, the range is a *minimum* of 75 hours up to 300 hours. The number of hours you are actually required to serve may vary. This time is spent helping new players as well as getting used to being an Immortal. Those who will vote on your promotion will be watching how you use this time and how well you follow the intent and letter of the rules, so keep that in mind. Also keep in mind that promotion is NOT guaranteed. The number of allowed Attendants depends on the number of FLIs eligible to have an Attendant, and other factors, such as the FLI and prospective Attendant's availability.
