Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara
Ranks and Titles – Convict
Also used for Seaman and Soldier
A Convict is someone of Freeman rank who is currently serving a sentence imposed by a judge of the serving country. (Noblemen can become Convicts, too, but are stripped of their titles. When they finish their sentences, they become Freemen.)
How to Gain
You gain this rank by committing a crime and being sentenced to work it off.
Ceremony of Attainment
A Seaman or Soldier is awarded their rank by the Lieutenant for their Captain, representing their acceptance into the military. A convict is “awarded” this rank as a sentence punishment for a crime, not as a reward but can be publically shackled depending on the severity of the crime.
Military Title – Seaman or Soldier
An ordinary Soldier in the army or Seaman in the navy, because he is bound to duty and without rank, has the same formal social standing as a Convict. Because the Soldier and Seaman are not Convicts, however, and fight for Karameikos of their own free will, they are not vilified (called names, sat upon, abused) by the common population as Convicts may be.
Soldier / Seaman: the common fighter and worker within the military. They belong to a squadron with fourteen soldiers lead by a sergeant.
Spouses don’t get granted an special rights.
All children are automatically considered to be Freemen.
Convicts in Karameikos
The Rulers: Royal Family of Karameikos
Convicts in Karameikos are put to work in chain gangs, often building roads and fortifications.
Karameikos has a standing military of about 2,000 soldiers and seamen. In times of war, he can raise an additional 4,000 within a week (from the population of Specularum and coastal area) and an additional 4,000 within a few weeks after that (from the inland cities).
