white belt = Noble (Knight or Lord)
white belt + Four pointed coronet = Baron
white belt + Six pointed coronet = Duke
white belt + Eight pointed coronet = King/Queen
Basically you take a knee when you see the belt, then count the points (if present) to figure out the correct honorific.
Something as simple as this would work wonders to have things flow well in the game and this would have taken up very little space in the rulebook. Now, if some other chapter wanted a different style/levels of government, they could easily make up their own and let it be known in their chapter's player's guide/background handouts.
Many recreation groups like SCA and Adria do as well between a knight and squire. I know Adria does the ceremony as well. It is good to see Alliance does this as well.ChrioLA said:I have a white belt I earned in another game, it came with a set of oaths, Belt, chain, spurs and belt favor.. I tend to take that and role-play it when I'm at alliance.
I'm a huge fan of having a relationship between a knight and a squire, its one of the things in one of the other games I play that I like to bring to Alliance. It can be an amazing role-play. I also like the idea of a ceremony for knighting and a set of goals a person has to work for.
