Greetings and welcome to The Storm Kings.
I am Blade Knight the Storm King.
This clan is devoted to reaching new heights, bringing new people to a fun and social clan that makes them feel at home and to prepare them to storm the battlefield of the infamous clan wars.
It is also for veteran battlers to hone their skills and become terrors in the battles they fight in.
To join one must understand the rules and regulations that our host, the Serebii forums, has set to keep the peace.
For the full line-up of what these rules are look no further than this convenient link ---> RULES
How to become a King:
To join one must show an amount of reading skill so that they know to post answers to these questions:
~Do you have Wi-Fi?
~New or Experienced:
~Activity on Serebii:
If you do not have Wi-Fi you have no business joining.
After filling out this form, you will be tested by one of our skilled members in a battle. Do well enough in the first and you will be asked to a second battle. the purpose of these battles is to determine an applicant's skill. Each battle will be rated by the tester according to the following system.
-Strategy & Tactics:? /10
This refers to how well the applicant made their decisions during the battle, and their overall execution of his strategy.
This is a basic team rate. Was it well put together, any critical flaws/weaknesses etc.
Applicants achieving the pass marks of 15 (first battle) and 10 (second battle) will be ranked as Knights, while an applicant who fails either test will be ranked as a squire. (Note to testers: YOU MUST PROVIDE JUSTIFICATION FOR YOUR GRADES.)
Upon joining you will receive a PM from me, my co-leader or the Membership Supervisor with extra details.

For those who have just joined and for those who are current members this is the post for you read!
To rank up from Squire to Knight, a Squire must pass the 'Trials.' With the blessing of their tutor, a Squire will face off against 4 Storm Kings members; 2 Knights, a Paladin and a Noble. At the end of each battle, the Squire will be graded according to the testing criteria. To rank up he must achieve a pass mark of 10 for each test, a win grants an automatic pass. Grades from each member will be kept secret until the Squire has completed all 4 of their battles.
A Squire cannot appeal a decision, though his/her tutor may appeal on the Squire's behalf. It is expected (though not required) that the test battles are recorded and posted so that a tutor can observe their Squire's performance.
To rank up from Knight to Paladin, you must gain 8 Honor Points. Honor Points are gained by completing parts of the criteria below. Points from tasks within a set topic do not stack. Also Points from Champion do not stack with Gladiator or Minor Premier
