Social Classes and Status
Foundations of Status
The noble landholders form an important economic class, held in check by the religion-based political-social Orders of Rule, War, Law, and Aid (abbreviated OR, OW, OL, and OA respectively). Artisans who are masters of their crafts also hold a special status, due to their patron Drue Lord Magundurn.
Customs and Rigidity of Status
Membership in the Orders is restricted to members of landholding clans, with the exception of the Order of Aid, which accepts commoners in its lower ranks. It is possible for a privileged noble to sponsor a commoner, providing the means necessary for sustaining membership in an Order. Also, the transfer of land ownership can likewise grant priviliges to a common-born person.
