VHRG Empire

- Playing and Advancing ForceMod III

Before any test takes place, you must submit your ip address to the witness which will then be submitted to High Lord Venomous afterwards (this goes for every rank advancement test in the VHRG Empire).

This means actually seeing the ip when the player joins in game, or on Rcon, and not just being told in chat.

The Dark Lord and/or High Lord must be there to witness and sanction any test to happen; besides that of Dark Lord, for only the High Lord can witness this battle and he alone has the ability to sanction this test to happen.

As with any test, unforeseen things can happen during a match. You may get an important phone call, your power may go out, PC crashes, etc. It will be up to whoever witnesses the match to declare the winner of that match, or, to declare no winner at all.

High Lord Venomous retains the right to promote or demote at will.

Sith Acolyte

To achieve the rank of Sith Acolyte, you must pledge yourself to the VHRG Empire.

Despite the namesake, Sith Acolytes are not considered Sith.

However, if you were to show unique potential, you may be chosen by a Sith Lord to become their apprentice.

If you have interest in joining the VHRG Empire, you must add the VHRG title after your name, devoid of the color Red, until you become apprentice to a Sith Master.

In order for you to become apprentice to a Sith Master, a Sith Lord must observe your prowess in ForceMod III (FM3) through combat.

The observed battle must last the duration of an entire base map, and can either be a FFA or 1v1 match using any class(es) of your choosing.

The same goes for the player(s) testing against you, if applicable, since situations may vary.

A victor will be declared when you and your opponent(s) have been in a base map since its start, are both aware of the testing procedures, and one is victorious.

Upon victory, a Sith Lord (now Sith Master) will then teach you the true nature of the Dark Side, and through their training, you may become Sith.

Once you become apprentice to a Sith Lord, you may change the color of your name to red and add the Red VHRG title after your name, signifying that you are a disciple of the Sith Order, now starting on the dark path under the tutelage of a Sith Master to rightfully bear the mantle of Sith.

Under their tutelage, you will be directed to perform missions for the VHRG Empire and are expected to execute any order given by the High Lord without flaw.

Sith Zealot

To achieve the rank of Sith Zealot you must face one final assignment from your Sith Master. 

In order to be given this final assignment, you must prove to your Sith Master that you are ready for the challenge by performing exceptionally well on your missions and executing their orders without flaw.

The final assignment that can be given to you by your Sith Master consists of a series of 3 rigorous Trials.

In each of the 3 Trials, you must display a strong sense of character, for you will fail if you display any lack thereof through any: inappropriate use of cussing, unnecessary complaining, or quitting the match (this goes for every rank advancement test in VHRG Empire, remember this well)

The First Trial tests you upon your skill with the force & lightsaber as you re-enact the events of the battle between Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Darth Maul on Naboo. The First Trial must take place on a Duel of Fates map as the Jedi are played by the 2 players testing you, with any Aurorian class character(s) of their choosing, while you will be playing as the Sith, with any Zealot class character(s) of your choosing. The two Jedi may use any lightsaber style(s) of their choosing, while you (the Sith) may use any lightsaber style(s) of your choosing. In order to pass, the players testing you must reach up to 10 deaths combined, and you will fail if you reach 10 deaths. This will be done out of 3 rounds, you must win at least 2 out of the 3 rounds in order to pass.

The Second Trial tests you upon your skill with a Guns faction class such as those in the Mercenary, Military, or Droids factions. As before, you will test against 2 players, only with the exception that they must be using any Mercenary, Military, or Droids faction class(es) of their choosing, and so must you. In order to pass, the players testing you must reach up to 10 deaths combined, and you will fail if you reach 10 deaths. This will be done out of 3 rounds, you must win at least 2 out of the 3 rounds in order to pass.

The Third Trial tests you upon your capability on the battlefield in FFA. This is a combination of the 2 Trials before it, as the players testing you may choose any class(es) they wish to defeat you. However, since the players testing you are given the right to choose any class(es) they so wish, you may do the same. In order to pass, the players testing you must reach up to 10 deaths combined, and you will fail if you reach 10 deaths. This will be done out of 3 rounds, you must win at least 2 out of the 3 rounds in order to pass.

After completing all 3 Trials in their entirety, and passing at least 2 out of those 3 Trials, you will be considered for the rank of Sith Zealot by the Dark Lord and/or High Lord.

If deemed worthy by the Dark Lord and/or High Lord, you may add the honorary Black Heart title after your name in place of the Red VHRG title, signifying that you are an emblem of the Sith Order - entrusted with the task of destroying VHRG Empire's enemies and enforcing its dominance across the servers.

Sith Lord

To achieve the rank of Sith Lord, one must be prepared to perform the ultimate act of betrayal. 

A Sith's time as the apprentice only truly ends after the apprentice has slain their master, as is such in the VHRG Empire.

The rules are the same as that of the previous rank advancement tests, with the exception that this time, you must face your greatest test yet, destroying your master.

The battle against your master must last the duration of 3 (or 2) entire base maps in 1v1 combat using any class(es) of your choosing.

The same goes for your master.

This will be done out of 3 rounds, you must win at least 2 out of the 3 rounds in order to pass.

A victor will be declared when you and your master have been in each of the 3 (or 2) base maps since their start, are both aware of the testing procedures, and one is victorious.

Upon victory, you may add the honorary Sith Face >:[ symbol after your Black Heart title in whatever color of your choosing (so long as that color has not been claimed already by a current Sith/Dark Lord), signifying that you are a leader of the Sith Order - master of Sith knowledge and combat technique.

You may then take on an apprentice of your own, being guided by the will of the Dark Side, thus assuming the role of Sith Master.

Dark Lord

'The Squall' was the final test required to become one of Emperor Palpatine's Royal Guards. 

Sets of finalists would fight to the death to obtain the title of Royal Guard as the Emperor watched. 

We have adopted this tradition, however, in the VHRG Empire, the Squall shall serve as your final test to become the Dark Lord.

The rules are the same as that of the previous rank advancement tests, with the exception that this time, you must face the greatest and most powerful of the Sith Lords, the Dark Lord.

Your battle against the Dark Lord must last the duration of 3 (or 2) entire base maps in 1v1 combat using any class(es) of your choosing.

The same goes for the Dark Lord.

This will be done out of 3 rounds, you must win at least 2 out of the 3 rounds in order to pass.

A victor will be declared when you and the Dark Lord have been in each of the 3 (or 2) base maps since their start, are both aware of the testing procedures, and one is victorious.

Upon victory, you now have the ability to sanction all rank advancement tests (besides that of those testing for the title of Dark Lord) and shall serve as the High Lord's new hand effective immediately, signifying that you are the greatest and most powerful of the Sith Lords - supreme commander of the VHRG Empire for the throne.

In addition, the Dark Lord who loses this trial will lose their rank and be demoted to the title of Sith Lord; as in accordance with the Rule of Two, there can only be two true leaders of the VHRG Empire at any given time, and there can only be one Dark Lord to serve as hand to the High Lord.
