first we set up the army and and requirements.

• To attain this rank, one must give the oath of service
• Upon attaining the rank of Knight, one will be awarded a rank sash and sacred seal
Templar
• One must successfully complete the second requirements of dedication, strength, and time
• Upon attaining the rank of Templar, it is their duty to be watchful of the ranks below them. And to report any deeds, good or bad, to the Court.
• Upon attaining the rank of Templar, one will be rewarded a rank sash

**Senior Templar- awarded to the one who reaches rank of templar, before anyone else. Therefore, has seniority over
the other templars. If the senior templar moves up in rank, the next in line shall become senior trmplar.

High Constable
• One must successfully complete the third requirements of dedication, strength, and time
• Upon attaining the rank of High Constable, it is their duty to be watchful of the ranks below them. And to report any deeds, good or bad, to the Court.
• Upon attaining the rank of High Constable, one will be rewarded a rank sash
• One must acquire a dress/dinner uniform. The uniform must be worn at all official function

**Senior High Constable- awarded to the one who reaches rank of High Constable, before anyone else. Therefore, has seniority over the other High Constables. If the senior high constable moves up in rank, the next in line becomes the new senior high constable.

Field Marshal
• One must successfully complete the fourth requirements of dedication, strength, and time
• Upon attaining the rank of Field Marshal, it is their duty to be watchful of the ranks below them. And to report any deeds, good or bad, to the Court.
• Upon attaining the rank of Field Marshal, one will be rewarded a rank sash
• All soldiers must obey his orders




"Elite Guard"- This distinguished title is separate from the command structure listed above. This title is awarded to the three best individual fighters in the army. Every six months the northern guard will hold a contest to determine which three are honored with this title. Any fighter of any military rank can earn this title.


-If the king is on the field, he has the right to supersede the field marshal, and take over command if he so chooses.

-The Field Marshal may relinquish command to a high constable at his choosing. That high constable may relinquish command to a templar at his choosing, and so on.

-If it is believed that someone should be stripped of their title, a vote shall be taken at the next council meeting.

-Should the Field marshal fall in battle, command is automatically given to the Senior high constable.


[/b][Political Ranks can only be held by members of the army. This means Warwick or higher. These should not be considered positions of power, but instead positions of responsibility. ]

King- Supreme Ruler of the land. Responsible for running all major aspects of the chapter.

High Chancellor- Highest ranking position. Holds same responsibilities as the king, and serves as supreme ruler in his absence. Can only be appointed by a majority vote from all members of the Guard, including that of the king, or current high chancellor to be impeached. Only one high chancellor can serve at any one time.

Magister- Must have served as a lord for 6 months, maintain 50% attendance, and win a majority vote, including that of the High Chancellor or King. Only 3 magisters can serve at any one time. If three magisters already exist, A magister must be expelled by popular vote. (by more votes than any other Magister, but it doesn't have to be the majority.)

Lord- Base rank for council members. They are permitted to vote for political figures. Must be a member of the Guard (the military), and have maintained a minimum of 50% attendance at practices for the last 2 months.

-Individuals holding the above positions will serve on the high council. Major changes and decisions for the chapter will be decided by the council. For a motion to pass, one of the following must occur: 1.)A passing vote from the king, and a passing vote from either the high chancellor or majority of magisters. 2.)A passing vote from the High Chancellor, and Unanimous passing votes from the magisters. 3.)Unanimous passing votes from all the magisters and lords present.


-All council members are granted equal opportunity to present and persuade their side of the case. A lord has as much voice in a discussion as the king or chancelor, and should be listened to with equal credence.

-Any issue to be discussed at council must be determined before the council ceremony begins.

-If any magister is not present during council, the lords will vote for one of their own to fill in.

-The time of a council ceremony must be agreed upon my both the High Chancellor and the King. Both must be present for a council ceremony to take place.

-in depth discussion of an issue scheduled to be discussed at council should be avoided.

-If possible, council will meet every fourth week. (once a month)
