Planes of Power Progression

 

While there are many sites out there which provide translations of the Seer's cryptic responses, sites which actually outline how to proceed seem to be few and far between.  Hence, basic flagging, keying, and overall progression will be my focus here.

For the PoP novice, the first thing to understand is that there are 5 tiers of progression.  Each tier flags you for the next, so they must be completed in a relatively linear fashion.  You should also be aware that certain god scripts (such as those for Bertoxxulous and Rallos Zek the Warlord) have time limitations.  Beyond that, planar progression is merely a matter of having enough skilled (and similarly flagged) people with you to get the job done.

A colored asterisk (*) indicates a point when you should receive a character flag.
