Senior Members are eligible to bond an Aes Sedai or Gaidin. Every Aes Sedai has one bond with four exceptions. Red Aes Sedai have no bonds and Green Aes Sedai have two. All Gaidin who are members of a company have two available bonds with two exceptions. Aes Sedai or Gaidin who have retained Senior Membership status but have left their community group are allowed to keep any bonds they have, but may not bond any one else until they join a new group as a full member. Members have been eligible to earn merits since they joined the Tower, and can earn another bond through the merit system. They must have a Gold Senior Membership Merit plus 4 other Gold Merits, not including the Membership Merits. This gives all Aes Sedai a potential two bonds, with Red Aes Sedai gaining one and Greens going up to three available bonds. All Gaidin go up to three.
To bond, both members must email the Director of Membership to state your intention and why they wish to bond. The Director of Membership will respond as soon as possible. If the bond is approved, the Director of Membership will notify both parties, make an announcement in Site Announcements, and give both members access to the other’s Sitting or Great Room. If they wish to dissolve the bond, one or both members will email a request to the Director of Membership requesting to dissolve the bond and citing their reasons. If only one member requests to dissolve the bond, the Director of Membership will make a reasonable effort to contact the other member of the bond to notify them of the request and gain their approval/feedback. This will take no longer than 2 weeks. Once a decision is made, both parties, the Membership Admins, and the Tower Historian will be notified. The bond will be marked as ended in the library, but no other announcement will be made.
