Namek's Guru Applications Oct 17, 2021 22:06:46 GMT -5

The Guru is spiritual leader of the Namekians. Although usually a member of the Dragon Clan, this is not an absolute requirement. The Guru should be wise, even-handed, and prepared to lead the Namekians through whatever hardships lay ahead. While the elderly Guru of Namek passed away years ago, nobody has risen to take the position yet...
...Until now, that is!
Applications for Guru are now OPEN with this thread! To become Guru, your character must fit the requirements listed further below, and you must post an application with the listed template to give us your case as to why your character would make a good Guru. Since Guru is a spiritually-based position, instead of voting in-character, a single Guru will be chosen from the listed apps by staff.
Applications for Guru will be open until October 24th. After then, apps will be closed and staff will take some time to look over the options and pick one in the next few days!
In addition, The Guru is also the creator of the Dragon Balls connected to the Eternal Dragon, Porunga... However, Porunga still needs his beauty sleep, and the Guru will need time to learn about their new responsibilities and powers. The mechanics for Dragon Balls do not exist yet. As such, while a Guru will be chosen soon, the Dragon Ball mechanics to go with them will come much later.
Characters looking to become Guru should exhibit the following qualities:
- A Guru must be morally good and pure of heart, and they cannot be overly violent or merciless in nature. You cannot deceive your way into being Guru - Porunga will be able to tell if you're lying! Your character must truly be good and heroic at heart.
- Since the Guru will one day be the creator of the Dragon Balls and connected to Porunga himself, they must be adept with magic to pull this incredible feat off.
- The Guru is the Guardian and leader of Namek. In turn, they must have an existing, strong connection to Namek and its people, and an unwavering willingness to protect Namek and its people no matter the cost.
- The purpose of a Guru is not just to fight evil, but to guide Namek and its people and well. Good leadership and wisdom are requirements to be able to shepherd the planets' people in the right direction.
- Be active! We don’t expect anyone to post everyday, but given Guru is a major position, you need to be able to commit to the role, and the character assuming the role. Very new characters or characters who haven't been posted on much in recent times will be denied.
