Count/Countess is a title that belongs to the high nobility. In the Middle Ages the title was the lowest possible rank of nobility that allowed independence. A county could theoretically be a sovereign state, similar to a kingdom, just with less prestige to the regent. But more often it was part of a hierarchy of nobles within a larger feudal society.

It ranks lower than Marquis but higher than Viscount. It is granted to a certain person by the Regent.

[edit] Requirements

To become a Count, you don't need to meet any in game mechanical requirements. A Regent can appoint up to 1 Count for each castle the Kingdom owns. The title can also be customized to reflect a regional or roleplay equivalent. The crown icon seen above can also be altered, making it harder for others to recognize the rank.

This role is mainly for Role Playing purposes.

[edit] Duties

kingdoms can decide for themselves wether and which duties or privileges they want to give with the title. For reference, those may include among others:

  • administrative duties
  • military duties
  • award for exemplary loyalty, efforts for the kingdom's benefit, etc.
  • come with a salary
  • exemption from certain laws
