                                             Order of March:
       The following is the Order of March listed from highest ranking to the lowest ranking. When
processing it is normal for the lower ranks to enter first followed by the highest and then it is highest
rank to lowest when departing. The Order of March is used in matters of processions and positioning in
a formal setting, ceremonial dignities, and other matters where establishment of ranking is important.

                         The Power of Granting Awards
       The Nobles who may grant awards are divided into Landed and Court Nobility.
Landed Nobility may grant any type of award up to a level listed below. No one may grant
any award to himself or herself. Note that some awards have special restrictions that are will
be described in Kingdom Law with the individual award. Court Nobles may only grant
awards of the following types; Rose, Smith, Warrior, Yeoman, Griffin, Dragon, Owl, Garber,
and Mask.

                                               Titles of Nobility
       From time to time, a player demonstrates his abilities of service, dedication, and
aptitude beyond that which is suitable for a simple award. In these instances, the player may
be eligible for a grant of Noble Title. Specifically, one who holds a Grant of Title is considered
a Court Noble for award purposes.
       A player who has a Noble Title is accorded the respect due to one of the nobility, and
should conduct himself in such a manner. He has the power to grant awards of varying types
and levels, and holds a seat on the Noble’s Council.
       Also, those Monarchs chosen by the Kingdom and the Populace are considered to hold
a Patent of Nobility, thus becoming Landed Nobles. They have powers more extensive than
Court Nobles, able to grant higher levels of awards in more types, and serve as the ruler of a
Province. They also hold seat on the Noble’s Council, and are also accorded the respect due
one of noble rank along with the requirement of equally noble conduct.
       This is a list of the noble ranks, possible alternative forms of persona-appropriate
variations. Note that Kingdom Regents hold the title Prince during their reigns.
       Lord (Freier, Jito, Thane, Sheikh, Malik, Kholop, Father)
       Baronet (Freiherr, Visconde, Shugo, Smerd)
       Baron (Graf, Conde, Khan, Grafin, Emir, Amir, Dvorainin, Bishop)
       Viscount (Viscount, Viscomte, Landgraf, Mark, Vizer, Muzh)
       Count (Count, Earl, Comte, Comite, Jarl, Marquis, Pfalzgraf, Marques, Orkhan, Shikken,
Markgraf, Marchionese, Margrave, Caliph, Pasha, Bashaw, Sluga, Archbishop)
       Duke (Duke, Duc, Margrave, Markgraf, Marchese, Duca, Duque, Dux, Ilkhan, Shikken,
Doge, Shah, Bey, Boyar, Cardinal)
       Archduke (Tarkhan, Grand Duke, Shah, Dey, Kniazh muzh)
       Prince (Prince, Priz, Furst, Principe, Dauphin, Shogun, Veliky kniaz) King (Padishah,
Kha-Khan, Sultan, Maharajah, Emperor, Herzog, Rex, Imperator, Tzar, Tsar, Pope)

                              The Council of Nobles
       The Council of Nobles is established in Article 2 of Kingdom Law. Much power is invested
in the Crown, and much accountability is also maintained. The instrument of this check on

Royal authority is the Council of Nobles. Much as the Althing handles the mundane business
of the Kingdom, the Noble's Council oversees the in-game business of the Kingdom. The
Noble's Council oversees the in-game business of the Kingdom. As such, the Council has the following
powers;
         To ratify or disapprove all Royal decrees in a timely manner.
         To hear cases of grievance against members of the Crown, Nobility, and Aristocracy in cases
          where the Crown's authority is either deemed insufficient or in cases of appeal of the Crown's
          decision.
       To issue recommendations for sanction against those found guilty of offense. These
recommendations are made to the Crown. If the Crown is subject to sanction, the matter is considered in
force until an appeal to Althing is completed.
       The Following individuals are currently Nobles:

       The Circle of Steel exists to provide a collective discourse on the rules governing combat
activities and their applications within the game. It is composed of the Guildmaster of Reeves, Class
Guildmasters, and the Captains of all fighting companies, and the heads of the Chivalric Orders. The
Circle itself will choose from among its ranks the member who will chair the meetings. The following
chart shows who is currently on the Circle of steel and why:

                                       Titles of Aristocracy
       Members of the Aristocracy are accorded the respect and honors due one who has
gained recognition in the Kingdom, but do not have a voice on the Council of Nobles, nor are
they allowed to wear coronets or crowns.
Knighthood
       The Crown can bestow Knighthood. As a minimum, the candidate must have earned at
least one masterhood in an Order of Achievement and at least a combined total of 5 silver
awards in at least two other Orders. This does not guarantee knighthood. The Crown may
require additional non-award performance. Once these additional challenges have been met,
the Crown may declare a candidate a Knight. The Crown may, with the agreement of the
Kingdom Regent or Knight Marshal, bestow knighthood on a candidate who has not met these
criteria. As a general rule, if a person has a solid foundation of ability in their chosen field and
has shown the ability to teach and encourage others in a positive manner in those fields, and
can conduct himself in a manner appropriate to the rank of Knight, then Knighthood is
probably warranted. The symbol of a Knight is a white belt (at least 50% white).
Master of Orders
       The Crown bestows Masterhood. As a minimum, the candidate must have earned at
least a gold award in one Order of Achievement and at least an additional 3 silver awards in
other Orders. This does not guarantee Masterhood. The Crown may require additional non-
award performance. Once these additional challenges have been met, the Crown may declare
the candidate a Master. The Crown may, with the agreement of the Kingdom Regent or Knight
Marshal, bestow masterhood on a candidate who has not met these criteria. As a rule of

thumb, if a person could have used the displayed skills to earn a good living in the medieval
or ancient world, then Masterhood is probably warranted.
Master of Class
        The Crown bestows Masterhood. The candidate will be observed for a prolonged time
and his performance in a class assessed and analyzed. He may also be questioned (openly and
covertly) about his class. He should display absolute knowledge of the class and how it
interacts with other classes. He should visibly portray that class in a dynamic and
individualistic manner, yet in such a way that most people can immediately identify the class
being played just through casual off-field observation. Other challenges may be required. Once
these have been met, the Crown may declare the candidate a Master.
        Class Masters are known by the Class they excel in (Master Bard, Master Warrior, etc.).
Masterhood may be granted for as many of the Classes that a person qualifies for. The symbol
of a Class Master is an unadorned black chain. Only one chain is worn, regardless of the
number of Class Masterhoods held. (Note that Class and Order Masters may wear both black
and gold chains, and may also combine the two into a single chain.)
Squires
        A Squire is a player taken under a Knight's wing for training purposes with the
intention of helping that player to eventually attain the rank of Knight. The symbol of a Squire
is a red belt (at least 50% red). There is no qualification or requirement for becoming a Squire
beyond that of the Knight's judgment.
        Note that there is also a Titles of Esquire, which confers the same rank and station as
Squire and also uses a red belt as a symbol. Players with the title Esquire are considered
Squires to the Kingdom rather than a specific Knight.
Pages
Pages (also known as Men-at-Arms, Armsmen, Bannermen, etc.) are typically chosen by
Squires in the same way Squires are chosen by Knights. The symbol of a Page is a yellow belt
(at least 50% yellow).

                                               Sumptuary Laws
In order to preserve the flavor of the game, certain elements of garb and accessories have been given special
significance. This is intended to allow for rapid recognition of a person’s achievements, and also to promote a
sense of pride in one’s accomplishments and a drive to achieve more.
Class Garb
        Each class has its own particular garb parameters. These are listed in the class descriptions. Note that all
battlefield participants must be in "period" garb (tunic, robe, armor, etc.). Any fighting player not wearing garb is
considered to be playing a Peasant.
Non-Class Garb
        In addition to class garb, there are certain other garb elements that denote special positions. These items
are reserved whether on or off the battlefield. The use and application of good garb is important in creating the
correct mood of the battlegames and events. All members must be garbed in a "period" fashion. Newcomers
should have their own garb (and weapons) within a month of beginning play. It is easy and inexpensive to fashion
a T-tunic or tabard, and plenty of people are willing to help. If you have questions about garb or any area of the
rules, then all you have to do is ask.
        White belts (any belt more than 50% white) are reserved for knights. Red belts (any belt more than 50%
red) are reserved for squires or players with the title Esquire. Yellow belts are reserved for Pages. A non-fighting
page must also wear a gold "enchantment" strip if on the field.
        Unadorned gold chains are reserved for Masters of Orders. Unadorned black chains are reserved for
Masters of Class.
        Spurs are reserved for company Captains.
        The Phoenix can only be displayed in a kingdom's heraldry, or a Paladin's or Anti-Paladin's garb.
        Crowns and Coronets are worn only by those of the Royalty or Nobility.




           Conversion Charts for 10 Rung Ladder Awards
        Awards are issued and recorded in the "GSC" system. In the fall of 2007 the award structure was
changed from a ten-rung award ladder system to the Gold-Silver-Copper System. The following is a chart for
conversion from the ten rung ladder to the full values of the Gold-Silver-Copper awards within an order of
Awards. NOTE: This chart is for conversions ONLY. The exchange of Copper level Awards to Silver or Gold
level Awards, or Silver level Awards to Gold Level Awards is not automatic and may only be authorized by
specific officers.

              Each award beyond this is One Silver and One Copper per Award of Order past the Tenth

                                                Award Exchanges:
                 Awards are issued and recorded in the "GSC" system. The basic award is a
Copper award, such as a Copper Dragon or Copper Rose. Five Coppers can be converted to a
Silver award. Five Silvers can be converted to a Gold award. Conversion is not automatically
entitled, and may only be authorized by specific officers; a person should display an evident
improvement in their performance before a conversion is warranted. By contrast, all Copper-
level awards are issued for more or less the same degree of accomplishment. This is perhaps
best visualized in the ancient "apprenticeship" format. Coppers are issued for novice- and
apprentice-level efforts, Silvers for journeyman-level, and Golds for master-level.
Only landed Nobility may make any exchanges. Provincial Nobles may trade Coppers for
Silvers but only Royalty may trade Coppers or Silvers for Gold level awards. Exchanges are
not automatic and must be earned through increased efforts.



                                                    Award Names:
In the fall of 2007 the Awards system was altered in an effort to be more in keeping with the
generally accepted award systems in use throughout the High Fantasy Society. The following
list is a brief summary of each award, what color symbolizes the award, and other pertinent
details. Awards are typically symbolized by a “pony bead” of specific color to aid the nobles in

        No player who had their credits and awards transferred out of Drakenfjord is currently listed in the Order
of Precedence. Whenever a player transfers in from another kingdom their awards will be recorded on the chart
when possible or listed out with titles and other honors as necessary to keep an accurate record of the awards
earned by that player.

                           Accuracy of the Order of Precedence:
       The Order of Precedence is updated as frequently as realistically possible. However there will be
times when awards have been granted that they have not yet been recorded. This is true of both new
awards and trade-in of levels of awards. If any awards, persona names, titles, honors or other relevant
information is known to be inaccurate or not listed please notify the Kingdom Prime Minister or the
Kingdom Herald so that the situation can be verified and rectified as soon as possible.
