**Please note that Nobility is one of the most prestigious and therefore, hardest positions to get.
Nobility may be applied for on-creation or earned in game. On creation applications will be heavily scrutinized.**
Earning nobility in game is possible by gaining Knighthood either in service to the Crown or a Lord. It is also possible to gain a Lordship or lesser noble titles by having an existing noble use his influence to assist in the creation of a new House. Generally, the more prestigious the title, the harder it will be to have Cormyr grant it to you.
All nobles (Cormyrean or Foreign):
- Nobles have special rights under the law
- Nobles may use titles in official correspondence, and demand respect from the commonfolk under the law
- Nobles may pay fines to escape any crime except capital crimes
- Nobles may sponsor retainers to their Houses, who gain special privileges under the law
- Nobles are exempt from petty crimes
- Nobles may ask for trials by combat to escape capital crimes, but only once.
- Nobles above Knight status may refuse commands from the Lord of the North, though influence and politics play a large role in reality
- Nobles above Knight status may swear Knights in their service (will still require an application from the Knight)
