Partially in response to The Midrealm's evolved award structure, Ealdormere's award structure was carefully planned from the start.
For a full listing of awards by Precedence see Order of Precedence.
Ealdormere's award structure is essentially a “three-stream, three-tier” system.
The three “streams” are martial achievement, arts & sciences, and service. The three “tiers” start with award of arms level awards, followed by grant-level awards, and finally the patent-level or “Peerage” awards. All these awards grant a place on the Order of Precedence. Most commonly, someone will be given these awards in ascending order.
In addition, the custom of awarding Court Baronies for achievement is common in Ealdormere. This award is not on one of the three “streams”, and is given at the whim of the Crown. In the Order of Precedence, Barons and Baronesses rank above Honourable Lords and Ladies (those holding a grant of arms) and below Peers.
