Sage is the first step in the ranking system for mages. A sage is a keeper of arcane knowledge and should do his/her best to learn as much as possible about the magic which he/she uses. A sage is still learning the arts, but have proven themselves to be formidable and deserve respect for their vigilance in learning the art of magic. A sage spreads knowledge wherever he/she can and never turns down a chance to enlighten.

To achieve the rank of Sage one must:

Have a magery skill of at least 85%.

Convince Cain that you are worthy of the position.

Have a working knowledge of spells and reagents.

Defeat one current Sage in a best out of 5 duel.

There is no limit to the number of Sages in the guild at a given time. Once the rank of sage has been reached there are only four ways to lose the rank. 1. Leave OBD. 2. Rise in rank. 3. Voluteerily step down as sage and become unranked. or 4. Be demoted by order of the almight Cain.

High Sage will be the title of he/she who leads the Sages. Only one High Sage will exist at any given time so once defeated a High Sage will be demoted to the rank of Arch-Magi.

To achieve the rank of Sage one must:

Be GM in at least one magery related skill.

Convince Cain that you are worthy of the position.

Have a working knowledge of spells and reagents.

Hold the rank of Arch-Magi for at least 3 weeks.
