The Empty Waste
Training is a part of life for adventurers in Alyssia. Without training, a character is unable to advance beyond 5th level. In order to advance beyond 5th level, a character must be trained. The trainer must be at least 9th level in the class being trained and the trainer must be at least 2 levels higher than the individual being trained. It is possible for player characters to train their own cohorts, henchmen, or NPCs at higher levels.
After a character attains enough experience to gain a level, he does not gain any benefits until he has trained. The character continues to gain experience normally until he is half way to the next level, at which time he only gains ½ experience. The character cannot gain experience beyond ¾ of the next level until he has trained.
Training can actually take place prior to leveling, so long as the character is ¾ of the way to the next level. If the character is able to pre-train, he will gain his new level abilities after he reaches the necessary experience requirement and has had an opportunity to meditate/sleep on his new experience.
The following chart indicates the cost of training and the time it takes. Many organizations provide training to their members, usually at reduced cost.
