Riders rely on a multitude of things in order to gain prestige among their comrades. Naturally, the health and strength of their dragon is paramount to their success, and always taken into account as they progress. However, certain duties fall to the rider alone to accomplish. Once they have earned a certain amount of reputation, they will gain a new rank among their peers. Riders of a higher rank gain access to larger Dens, more Jobs, and even Classes. Their dragons also greatly benefit from having an experienced Rider at their side during activities. Only comics or written entries are accepted for advancement quests.
This is the base rank for all Riders.

Draw a comic or write a story that shows your Rider impressing the Elemental Ancestor dragon of one of their specialties. Ancestors are living incarnations of their element—Fire is made entirely of flame, Metal is completely metal, Ocean is completely liquid…you get the picture. They take the form of a dragon with the base physical traits of that element. Each Ancestor highly values certain character traits in Riders. Show your Rider demonstrating this character trait in one form or another to the Elemental Ancestor. How the Ancestor appears and their role in the story is up to your discretion. Comics must be at least fifteen panels long. Written entries must be at least 2500 words. More is always encouraged. Only comics or written entries are accepted.

- Light – Charisma
- Fire – Vengeful

This is an incredibly rare achievement, and those called Dragon Master hold even more respect than officials of the regions they travel through. They aren’t appointed by any person—no, they earn it from the Elemental Ancestor of their dragon. This is a rigorous exercise that often results in injuries to the Rider. Furthermore, the dragon will not be able to physically assist in their challenge. Those who live through this process are considered experts of their corresponding element and a Master of dragons in general. When new dragons are born, they are the ones to perform guidance.
