So Minea was nice enough to post this for us =D
Get ready for it—TERA’s first vanarch elections will be coming up just a few weeks after launch. Every one of TERA’s active provinces will need a vanarch, and by then we should have a healthy pool of high-level players and active guilds eager to compete for the honor and power of the vanarchy. We want this first election to be fun, competitive, and highly meaningful to the participants and the voters.
If you think you have what it takes to be the people’s choice, you’ll have a week from the election announcement to mount your campaign and convince voters to throw their support behind you and not that other candidate.
Even if you don’t plan to run for office, you’ll still get to choose your world’s leaders with your vote, so you might want to know something about the process.
What’s a vanarch?
Vanarchs rule over the provinces of TERA’s world, and determine taxes and other policies within their provinces. One vanarch oversees each province for a period of one month until the next election.
Who can run?
At present, a candidate for vanarch must be at least level 50 and the leader of a level 3 guild with at least 20 members. To raise the level of your guild, earn Catharnach awards by doing guild quests. You’ll need 70 Catharnach awards to raise a guild to level 3.
Each candidate will declare for a particular province, provide a statement of candidacy, and pay a registration fee of 100 Catharnach awards and 3,000 gold. All candidates will need to register before the election deadline, which we will announce prominently on the website and in game.
Who can vote?
Vanarchs are elected by popular vote. Any character of level 20 or higher is eligible to vote, but your account is limited to one vote per server.
Which provinces will have vanarchs?
We currently have 15 active provinces including the Island of Dawn.
