Benefits of Service

  1. We will strive to create ways in which to offer opportunities for professional gain for those taking on castle staff positions whenever possible, for example :

    • A castle cook could also own a bakery shop within the city so might benefit from using our cooking stations to increase their skills and/or be granted a portion of the goods created for use in the castle as payment for their service that could then be sold in their shop.

    • A groundskeeper might also own a grocery shop and receive a portion of the produce harvested from the gardens in payment for their service that could then be sold in their shop.

    • The master of the hunt could also own a tannery and benefit from being able to hunt on castle lands and/or receive the skins obtained during a hunt as payment for their service.

  2. All staff will be provided with servant quarters within the castle or may have the option to receive rent-free land on which to build a home or business.

Anyone interested in a staff position or that might have an idea for a position not listed above, please contact Balerion Vindhlér.

Rank Structure

The Himinbjörg Military Academy will have an academic rank structure that will be separate from the rank structure within the county's army and regiments. However, to be eligible to become a member of a regiment may require formal completion of a specific rank within the academy.

  • Grand Master: Open
    Headmaster of the Academy and Military Advisor (Proctor) for the county.

    Master paladin knights, serving in the county's army as a commander of one of the military regiments. Commanders will determine the military ranks and authority of the members within their regiment beyond that of their academic rank within the academy. Commanders are still expected to continue their training to advance their military skills and knowledge, and are appointed to this military rank by the Baron upon the recommendation of a Regiment Commander and/or the Grand Master.

  • Master
    Elite paladin knights, eligible to serve in the county's army as a member of one of the military regiments and/or as a teacher within the academy. Masters are still expected to continue their training to advance their military knowledge and skills, and will need to demonstrate their abilities to a Commander in order to receive recognition for academic achievements that might result in advancing their military rank.

  • Champion
    Renowned paladin soldiers, eligible to serve in the county's army as a member of one of the military regiments. Champions are still expected to continue their training and advance their military knowledge and skills, and will need to demonstrate their abilities to the Grand Master and/or Regiment Commander by completing a "test of faith" in order to be elevated beyond this academic rank and/or advance their military status.

  • Guardian
    Artisan paladin soldiers, eligible to serve in the county's army as a member of one of the military regiments. Guardians are still expected to continue their training and advance their military knowledge and skills, and will need to demonstrate their abilities to the Grand Master and/or Regiment Commander by completing a "test of discipline" in order to be elevated beyond this academic rank and/or advance their military status.

  • Valiant
    Expert paladin soldiers, eligible to serve in the county's army as a member of one of the military regiments. Valiant soldiers are still expected to continue their training and advance their military knowledge and skills, and will need to demonstrate their abilities to the Grand Master and/or Regiment Commander by completing a "test of valor" in order to be elevated beyond this academic rank and/or advance their military status.

  • Gallant
    Journeyman paladin soldiers, eligible to serve in the county's army as a member of one of the military regiments. Gallant soldiers are still expected to continue their training and advance their military knowledge and skills, and will need to demonstrate their abilities to the Grand Master and/or Regiment Commander by completing a "test of bravery" in order to be elevated beyond this academic rank and/or advance their military status.

  • Squire
    Apprentice paladins, eligible to further advance their training beyond the basics by serving in the county's army as an apprentice to a member of one of the military regiments. Squires are still expected to continue their training, and must demonstrate their knowledge/skills by completing a "test of skill" assigned by a Master or the Grand Master of the academy in order to advance beyond this academic/military rank.

  • Page
    Novice rank open to anyone interested in joining the academy to learn basic military knowledge and skills. Pages must complete a “test of fealty” assigned by a Master or the Grand Master of the academy in order to advance beyond this academic rank.

Skill Tests

A skill test is an assignment that must be passed at the completion of each academic rank, in addition to mastering any game mechanic threshold requirements to advance military training. The requirements to pass each test will be determined by the Master instructors and/or the Grand Master of the academy. Every skill test will be different for each academic level and may also be different for each student. A test may require a simple demonstration of the knowledge learned such as a “test of skill” or may entail a more complex task or series of tasks to be completed alone or as a group such as a “test of valor” or a “test of faith”.

Anyone interested in joining the Himinbjörg Military Academy, please contact Count Balerion Vindhlér.
