Titles

or, The Rewards for a Job Not Terribly Bungled

Players may become titled after performing a valuable service to the state.

These are:

  1. being mentioned twice in despatches;
  2. becoming a Minister;
  3. obtaining a result of 1 on the Battle Result Table, if commanding a Regiment, Battalion or Squadron;
  4. obtaining a result of 1 or 2 on the Battle Result Table if commanding an Army, Division or Brigade; or
  5. obtaining a result on the Battle Result Table at least three higher than one's immediate superior.

The King confers titles upon players who meet any of the above requirements on a roll of 6 on one die. This roll may be modified by influence. Players add one to their die roll for every three levels they are above the minimum Social Level they must have for a particular title. Every time, after the first, that a player qualifies for a title, he subtracts one from the die roll needed; this is cumulative. Players without titles become knights; players who are already titled roll for the next higher title. Players who become titled receive Status Points that month, or the month after the campaign ends if the title was received during a campaign. Titles above knighthood carry a monthly pension with them as listed on the chart shown below.

If a character's Social Level is below that listed on the New Social Level column of the following chart, he is automatically elevated to that level. If his Social Level is below the level listed under Min Social Level, he will not be titled, his Social Level will remain the same and he will receive a pat on the back instead. Pats on the back have no effect on the game.

No characters are titled at the beginning of the game, except orphans of noble parentage.
