Test of the Obelisk
|Demonstrated by Phoenixwcu in Celaeno on 2010-8-13.|
Passing the Principle
Build an Obelisk of seven cubits of any type.
NOTE: After building a seven cubit obelisk and passing the principle, you can tear down the obelisk and get all the materials back, apart from those for the construction site. This is not possible for larger obelisks.
Warning: If you pass the test with your obelisk, or after an unspecified period of time, you won't be able to tear down your obelisk and salvage the materials. A passed obelisk will stand the whole Tale.
If you want to pass the Test, thereby gaining a rank in Architecture, you might want to consult the building queues in your region (see below). However, you can also wait until more types of obelisks have been released; by that time most queues will have been dissolved and you can build a smaller obelisk with less stress.
Passing the principle will get you a level. If you pass the test you will gain a rank in Architecture, which might or might not gain you another level. See Levels for more info.
