Notes on Kurathene Empire military status

PostAuthor: Orleron » Mon Jan 20, 2003 12:16 am

The Kurathene Empire is sort of a combination of medieval fuedalism and
Roman empire.

Medieval keeps are prominent in building. Although palaces of both
varieties may exist.

Every noble has developed their own ranking systems since the collapse of
the empire, but the Kurathene soldier ranks were:
from lowest to highest

Man-at-Arms
Seargeant-at-Arms
Centurion (beginning of officer ranks)
Tribune
Captain (of hundreds)
Captain (of thousands)
Proconsul of the Army


Then there was a separate advancement for nobles. The ranks above were
for army soldiers who were usually common folk, although there were
still many nobles in it. The fuedal advancement was:

page (young boys)
Squire (teenagers learning to fight)
Knight of The Kurathene Empire (special honor given to nobles and heroes)
Knight Commander (a Knight that's been around a while and gotten well off)
Patrician (a Knight that worked their way up to command many nobles and
other army members in battle. This title was most often given to
non-nobles who worked their way up to being nobles in their own right.
Nobles who achieved knighthood rarely needed to receive this title because
they already had noble titles from their home fief.)
