||The Earl of a Dawnish Noble House is the House’s leader, who leads the House in all its great achievements and who sets its conditions of membership.
||There are around 30 Earls or Enchanters in play, honestly unless you really want to make a group of 1 this probably isn’t needed
||Some Earls who have studied magic choose the title “Earl-Enchanter” or simply “Enchanter”. Most learn ritual magic to benefit their people; some build relationships with powerful Summer Eternals.
||Less then there are Earls
||Knights-Errant are men and women engaged in their Test of Mettle, who are still technically yeomen but who are expected - and who are questing - to prove themselves glorious.
||So Knight-Errant is a aspect that is temporary by nature, it’s a really good archetype to gen on, because it gives early game activity and let’s you IC find a group.
||Questing Knights are those Knights who have proved themselves worthy in their Test of Mettle and have chosen to keep on questing for ever-greater glory
||For all the Knights in Dawn, we don’t have many questing knights and I think we only have two groups of them (some of which include House Knights in them
||A Troubadour is a priest who learns all the stories of their Noble House, past and present, and tells them in poetry and song to inspire their people to greatness.
||At times this has felt low, but we have a good number of amazing Troubadours at the moment.
||Witches are Dawnish magic-users. In noble houses, they fight alongside the House’s warriors.
||At one point there were really few of them in Dawn, they have definately increased but as the nation with the most defined battlemage brief more would be nice.
||Most others belong to Weaver Cabals, independent groups of ritual witches which accept both yeomen and noble members.
||This is a weird one I was going to say Dawn has plenty of Weavers, we cast strategic rituals by essentially raw numbers but conceptually there are less who are pure Weavers
||Itinerant entertainers who often combine magic with their performances and practice dramaturgy. They are often (sometimes justly) accused of being spies, tricksters and mountebanks as well as performers.
||Dawn never feels like it had a Troupe of Guisers, there are groups of weavers who shift towards Dramaturgy, and there may be a lot of Guisers who just slip into ritual groups. I’d love to see a proper Guising Troupe but without a group (or a resolution to be a solo ritualist) much of the interest of the archetype vanishes
||A Noble House’s Seneschal is a trusted yeoman who oversees its financial affairs, arranging deals and trades and keeping the House solvent.
||Dawn is slightly short of these typically, in that many houses don’t have one, or are about to loose one.
||Dawnish Advocates are yeoman politicians who navigate the murky waters of Senate politics for their noble masters.
||So this is a bit weird in that basically there aren’t many slots, Dawn doens’t have many, but that’s because but we have three Senators, although there are a few other characters in Dawn who might be able to use them, it’s also really hard skill heavy.
||A yeoman Retainer is a Dawnish Noble’s most trusted attendant, who works closely with a particular Noble, or sometimes for the whole House.
||I think most of Dawn’s (non-weaver) yeofolk are probably more this than anything else although actually the one to one relationship is short
