There are a few things that you need to know before your character can succeed a name and become a successor. Generally speaking, there is no time limit for when your characters can succeed, and it's up to you if you want to take the chance when it happens or not.
But, before you can make your character succeed, you need to make sure that the name you want is one of the four currently available names. These change the 1st every month. If they are not updated by the 2nd, feel free to remind the founder to do so. If the name you want your character to succeed is available, then all you need to do is fill out this form, and hope that you were the first one to do so for that particular name. This is based in a first come, first serve basis, and as such, someone else might beat you to your favoured name. In either scenario, you will be notified of it, and if not, feel free to ask.
If you were the first one to apply for that name, your character will be placed in the succession queue, and you will be notified that your character is next in line when the succession before your character happens.
After all this, it's mainly up to you what you want to do for your character's succession. So far, everyone has had a succession concert as a forum thread where the announcement of the new name and such has been held. Many also have had a so called "fever thread", where the focus is on that character and their character development specifically. It's entirely up to you what you want to do!
Normally, only one succession concert is allowed per month, but in certain circumstances, more can be held.
