Cost: 1CP per rank
You enjoy a position (whether earned or inherited) of considerable social privilege and responsibility. The exact effects of this Ad are mainly left to role-playing situations. However, it can grant circumstance bonuses to certain situations, if the GM deems it appropriate.
You cannot hold multiple Positions of Power.
Rank 1 (1CP): You might be an assistant professor at an educational institution, a low-ranking military or law-enforcement officer (rank equivalent to Sergeant), a very minor holder of a patent of nobility (baronet), or have a minor position in local politics (city hall bureaucrat).
Rank 2 (2CP): You might be a dean or department head at an educational institution, a military or law-enforcement officer (rank equivalent to Lieutenant), a holder of a relatively minor patent of nobility (Baron or Viscount), or have a position in local politics of some influence (city council, regional representative).
Rank 3 (3CP): You might be a senior administrator at an educational institution, a major director of an institution such as a museum, a law-enforcement or military officer of some seniority (rank equivalent to Captain), a holder of a patent of nobility (Count or Earl), or a hold a fairly powerful position in local politics (mayor of a moderate-sized city, representative to a national ruling body).
With the GM’s permission, you may purchase positions even higher than those listed and at prices deemed appropriate by the GM. GMs and players are both warned that positions of considerable power can be disruptive to an on-going campaign and difficult to maintain in conjunction with a heroic adventuring career.
