Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara
Ranks and Titles – Freeman
Also used for Ensign and Sergeant
These are the ordinary folk; they may be dirt-poor farmers or wealthy merchants who have merely never acquired a noble title.
Freemen are addressed by their names. A Freeman in a position of importance is usually called Master or Mistress. Such freemen include townmasters (mayors), ministers, ambassadors, well-known heroe, and so forth; if they have no other titles, they’re called “Master (name)” or “Mistress (Name).” Courteous noblemen will also address these people by these titles; a nobleman (other than one of the Royal Family) who does not do so is probably being rude.
How to Gain
This is the default level of Title for most characters, which can be altered by the background rolled or chosen by players. This is also the default rank of citizens unless they have a Heir Rights claim.
Almost all your PCs will begin at Freeman social class. In the “Family Social Standing” chart from the background section, characters rolled their families social standing; anyone who rolled from a 01 to 85 or a 96 to 97 starts out as a Freeman. If the character rolled an 86 to 95 or 98 to 00, he starts out as a Court Lord.
Natrually, most of your characters may not be content to stay at Freeman rank.
Ceremony of Attainment
A Ensign or a Sergeant is awarded their rank for their Captain.
Military Title – Ensign or Sergeant
Sergeants in the army and Ensigns in the navy are Freemen. They are usually addressed by their ranks. Their role is to see to it that the Captain or Lieutenant orders are carried out.
Spouses don’t get granted an special rights, but may be given respect based on the standing of their partner.
All children are automatically considered to be Freemen.
