This template is to track the progress of your force-user as he/she progresses through the ranks. When your character first begins his training as an Imperial Knight [assuming that he is starting as a Cadet] you will fill out section I of the template ONLY. If you have joined the Order of Imperial Knights at a rank higher than Knight, we ask that you complete training threads that are marked as “Required Imperial Knight Basics”.
With each rank you gain in the Imperial Knights, you will have to fill out a new section of the template and attach it to your profile. Section I for Cadets, Section II for Knights etc.
It is recommended that the training be completed in the order that it appears on the template. It is also highly recommended that each Imperial Knight take some time to read over force abilities on Wookipedia before continuing. Remember to use common sense when progressing your characters, and do not give overpowered abilities to a character with inadequate training. Doing so could result in a postponing of your characters promotion, among other things.
Be sure to post links to the threads you have completed in the proper spots on the template. You are not required to create threads dedicated to just training in order to complete a required training, but in order for a thread to be eligible as a training thread there must be obvious progression towards the ability in the storyline of the thread. You may be asked to do a dedicated thread if a thread is not seen as sufficient. It is highly recommended that you create a dedicated thread to avoid wasted time.

(NOTICE: Self Trainings are absolutely acceptable and you can complete multiple of the following training threads in one large Self-training thread. I do ask, however, that for any STs that aim to complete multiple trainings in a single thread be three thousands words or more in length).

Creation of your lightsaber/telekinesis : (The first trial of all cadets is to create their lightsaber, which is seen as a mere tool of the Imperial Knights and not a ceremonial piece as it is in the Jedi. It is also worth noting that lightsabers in the Imperial Order are uniform and diversity in hilts is unheard of due to the militaristic nature of the Imperial Knights. This thread will also count as learning telekinesis powers, so be sure to make good mention of that.

Lightsaber Combat Training : (Each Cadet is required to learn one of two techniques practiced solely by the Imperial Knight. Praetoria Vanil http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Praetoria_Vonil or Praetoria Ishu http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Praetoria_Ishu . A cadet can learn both but each requires its own thread of 20 posts or more.) Form Learned: Link to thread:
Resist Temptation : (This training is a thread that shows your character has the ability to resist the darkside of the force and the mind tricks played by darksiders to sway individuals to their path. ) Completed: Y/N Link to thread:
Final Test of Loyalty : (This thread is to be the very last of the required training threads completed in Section I. This test of loyalty will be administered once a cadet has been chosen for promotion and not sooner. The test will consist of the Cadet being given orders by the Imperator to their master (or other important member of their life) under the pretense that they have “fallen to the darkside”. The cadet will then use a so called “ceremonial blade” to carry out the execution. The blade will end up being nothing more than a training blade, but by striking their target, they will have proven that they will obey the Imperator to the last word and worthy of joining the ranks of the Order.)
