Barons and Baronesses are high-ranking members of a Knight House's nobility.[1a][1b]


Overview

The exact place Barons occupy in a House's hierarchy vary from House to House and world to world; if a Knight World hosts multiple Houses, then a Baron might rule each House.[1a] If, however, a single "Great House" dominates its entire world, then the Barons will typically form a caste inbetween the House's Monarch and the Knights ordinary, the latter of whom serve as vassals to their Barons.[1a][1b]

Assuming that a Baron does not rule their House entire, they might hold dominion over a particular region or place of interest on their House's world. Alternatively they might hold a specific title or position within their House, possibly in their Monarch's Exalted Court.[1a][1b]
