- Rank is your position and station as seen in the eyes of the church; the level “requirements” are flexible and rising within the church is based more importantly on merit, accomplishment and ambition. A more detailed descriptions of the ranks within the church can be found here.
|Domination||Lord or Master|
|Evil||Dread or Fiendish|
|Law||Honorable or Lawful|
|Missionary||Faithful or Unholy|
|Strength||Draconic or Mighty|
|War||Battle or Blood|
A cleric’s domain title is used when hailed or spoken to by a layman or citizen; a cleric is free to use whichever domain title he feels best reflects his servitude to Chardun. Most clerics of Chardun combine the two (rank and domain title).
For example, an 8th level cleric who is acknowledged by the church to have reached the rank of Tyrant possesses the domains of Law and Strength; he might therefore use the title Honorable Tyrant if he felt the lawful aspect of his service to Chardun was most prominent; on the other hand he may use the title of Draconic Tyrant to emphasize his devotion to the strength granted him by Chardun – it is for the individual to decide and some of these domain ranks differ from region to region, it might be the equivalent of using the term “minister” or “preacher”.
