→Level 4 – Warlord
A Warlord receives no combat advantage for his rank, neither is he automatically assured of command. They may be recognised by a white silk scarf. Once awarded the rank remains as long as the member is of good standing within the society, unless rescinded.
Any member may nominate a combatant for the rank of Warlord by speaking to the Military Training Officer, Authenticity Officer, or Master at Arms. A discussion will then take place among the groups listed below.
All kit will be of exemplary standard, with zero tolerance for badly maintained equipment. It will be almost exclusively from the "recommended" section of the authenticity guidelines. This does not mean that all kit must be high status, just that it must be to a high level of authenticity.The conduct of the Warlord must be above reproach. They play to the spirit rather than the letter of the rules. They are graceful in victory and defeat. They are welcoming to new members, and willing to help on the battlefield. They are humble and modest.A Warlord will excel at some aspect of the battlefield. This is usually combative, show fighting or commanding, but may be something completely different.
