Sorry about the mistake. I meant the Right Of Progression, but somehow Ascensio n sounded cooler and got stuck in my mind. As for when Solarial first took his Rite, he's young so probably 2047. As for what hes doing now - The Prime Candidacy is not a rite exactly. Rather its a screening/testing process that earns an elf the privilege of vying for that ultimate prize: A Full Council seat.
These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
