Multiple Noble Characters

I'm looking in the rulebook for the entry describing that a noble player and each of their characters are considered a "Noble" of some sort. Does that rule actually exist, I'm pretty sure I remember it being voted on.

I just play all my characters as the same person.

It has been played a few ways

1. If you are a noble then any of your characters can be a "noble" that is your choice

2. if you play a noble that has become a caviler then you had to give up character ranks in a class to have that character start at 1st rank cav

3. Some people If thier main noble is assinated play a "family member" of that assinated character - typically of a lower noble "rank" (I play my brother a rank one fighter that is a knight)

there are no hard and fast "rules" on this and many nobles have more then one character all with different back stories and possibly different levels of nobility - most when they play a different character then thier noble play a character that is specifically non noble

for me ...
I play HRM Cailen Sendor Caviler or Cleric
I play Scrotaclease non noble ranger
I play Bob a thief non noble

And when Cailen in the past has been assassinated (and I did not bring gear for my other characters) I play my brother a 1st rank Fighter -noble- "Knight" typically roleplaying that he had heard of his brothers death and came to find out who killed him and avenge his untimly death

I know other nobles have multipule noble characters with different backstories and histories but they do not share the class AND level of thier main Noble character when they play the others for instance If "Cailen" had been assinated I would play neither a 100+ level caviler or a Cleric but rather play a seperate character entirely even if its a 1st rank fighter

and if you assassinate him, he will just go get drunk!

people are made "noble", not characters. so John Machate is noble, not Bendore. John Has the option to make any character he plays in the game a "noble" if he so chooses. That is how the most up to date version of Nobility was explained to me last time I asked.

Correct. You can have multiple characters who are Noble, some who are & some who aren't...whatever you want.

I do the same. Each "class" is a different facet of my character and uses a different skill set, but all are my Noble character.

I try to keep them separate. Rza (monk) is not a noble. He is kind, forgiving, humble, and laid-back. Raekwon (fighter) is a noble. He is mean, unforgiving, arrogant, and belligerent.

Just trying to have fun with it, you know?

And apparently he gets it on with the enemy.
