In the armed forces of the Dragon Empire, medals and other awards are a basic method for instilling unit pride and insuring that soldiers give their utmost efforts in combat.

Decorations fall into three general categories:

  • Titles and Orders of Distinction are noble titles or membership in knightly orders.
  • Medals are warded to all ranks for heroism and intitative.
  • Badges are awarded to all ranks to denote status, achievement and proficiency.

The most common decorations are listed below in order of precedence. Unless specified, a decoration can be awarded to any branch of service. Some of these honors also includes a monetary award. If so, the listed bonus is a number of months of pay. If the recipient is promoted at the same time as he receives an honor, any payment is made at the Pay Scale of his new rank.
