Planning is the first stage that occurs during the recruitment process as the Clan starts to grow. The Shadow Faction will need to grow in order to progress to the next stage. Akeba's Signet must be obtained for each recruitment and invitation. Continue to recruit members to the Faction while new members do the same through the Shadow Lottery process until the Clan has grown. This will bring you to the next stage. 


Gathering is the farming and grinding stage where members will need to participate in challenges and quests to progress and earn as many Marks during this phase. This is measured against other Shadow Clans. Leaders can track your progress during this phase and do have the power to change your ranks or kick you out of the clan entirely. 


This stage commences the face off against the current Immortals. At the initial game release, these Immortals will be run by NPC Immortals until they are replaced by the next set of Immoral players. After this stage, the clans will have to face Immortal players during the Rite of Exile. If the Shadows in the Showdown happen to be the winners in this round against the Immortals, then they have already won and will become the next Immortals. However, in a lot of cases, the Shadows will not win. They do have to continue to earn m Marks and progress until they reach the next stage in the Cycle. 


During this Phase, Adventurers can join in without going through the Shadow Loterru and any earned Marks are now buffs for the shadows. The shadows can continue their progress by earning Marks and eventually the shadows should be able to overthrow the immortals if they haven't already.
