The Court's advancement systems is similar to those you may have seen before, with some exceptions and modifications. This only really applies if you are even interested in ranking up in the Court's system, though it can provide more opportunities for your character!
So you've joined the Court and are interested in moving up in the ranks. What do you need to do, and what do you need to know?
So you've made it into a specialization rank, now what? A whole world has opened up!
The top tiers of the Court. The Royal Court are considered councilors of their respective ranks. They assist the leaders with minor administrative work and help monitor their subordinates, guiding and helping as necessary.
The leaders of the Court. These are members picked to fulfill leadership duties within the pack, which means they must be approved by the 'Souls Assemblage. Asking to be a leader decreases likelihood that you will be considered for the job!
Pups are the children of the Court. They are expected to do all the learning they can to be good adults to the pack, but are very leniently disciplined on the principle that they are still young. They are automatically promoted to either Seigneur or Monsieur/Madam when they first shift or reach 8 months, whichever is sooner.
Ancien are the venerable elders. They may not, however, work at being promoted through the ranks again. It is an absolutely final destination for any adult over the age of seven that chooses to forgo ambition.
Cour des Miracles does a monthly activity check, often at the end or start of a month; it's not always constant. But there are several things we look at to determine activity; number of posts, and last post. This only really applies to promoting from Seigneur/Monsieur/Madam or considering demotions. Low post counts or frequent appearances on the removal list may result in demotions for your character. For every check, the top three post counts receive points; for more information, see the game information.
|Poor||0 - 4 posts per month|
|Average||5 - 10 posts per month|
|Good||11 - 15 posts per month|
|Excellent||16+ posts per month|
Serf is typically based both on low counts and in character circumstances. However, members may be demoted to serf for violating rules in character despite high counts.
Nobles that are at the low end of the chain for several months (3) are demoted from the nobility and must rise again. Depending, they may even lose any specializations.
