Status Points & Social Level

or, The Gentlemanly Art of Bettering One's Place in Society (and Where to Bury the Bodies)

A player's object is to accumulate as many Status Points as he can in a month, in order to raise his Social Level. Status Points are (with one exception – see Titles) the only way in which Social Level can be raised.

To raise a character's Social Level by one level, Status Points equal to three times the number of the Social Level sought must be accumulated in a single month. For a character of Social Level 4 to attain Level 5, he must accumulate 15 Status Points in the four weeks of the month.

At the end of the month, all Status Points accumulated that month are dropped and the character begins anew. Please note that while Status Points are dropped, Social Levels are not. A player who is promoted from level 6 to level 7 during June starts July as a level 7.

In order for a character to maintain his Social Level, he must accumulate Status Points equal in number to his Social Level at the beginning of the month.

A character who, for instance, began July as a Social Level 3 and who, during the course of the month, accumulated 7 Status Points, would have sufficient points to maintain his level 3 position (the minimum of 3 needed), but an insufficient number to elevate himself to level 4 (three times the aspired level, or 3 x 4 = 12). This character will enter the next month as a Social Level 3.

A character who fails to maintain his Social Level will drop one level. If the level 3 character in the above example had attained only 1 Status Point in July, he would have entered August as a level 2.

A character's Social Level may not be changed more than one level per month except as a result of receiving a title (see Titles).
