    The Mandalorian military is built on a prestige system. Prestige is earned by preforming tasks that reflect Mandalorian values. Those warriors who are able to amass much prestige within Mandalorian culture are granted higher ranks within the Mandalorian military, giving them access to command posts (over soldiers and ships), as well as granting them the respect and loyalty of their fellows. Likewise, preforming acts contrary to Mandalorian values (such as showing cowardice in battle) could result in the loss of prestige.

    That being said, there is no one true way to gain prestige in Mandalorian society. Therefore, in order to gain prestige, a Mandalorian warrior can...
    • ...successfully lead a major military campaign, operation, or battle against a faction that is hostile to the Mandalorians. (15 prestige points)
    • ...defeat in combat and/or killing a Force-sensitive member of either of the active Sith Empire factions. More prestige is earned if the warrior claims their lightsaber as a trophy. (10 prestige points + 5 for lightsaber trophy)
    • ...prove their martial might and/or leadership by leading a group of Mandalorians in taking over a planetary system and adding it to Mandalorian territory. (10 prestige points)
    • ...prove their leadership by taking the helm of a pre-established or new Mandalorian clan and then leading them on successful missions beneficial to the Mandalorians. (10 prestige points)
    • ...establish a new Mandalorian clan by rallying like-minded Mandalorians together in a family unit. (7 prestige points)
    • ...take part in a major military campaign, operation, or battle against a faction that is hostile to the Mandalorians. (7 prestige points)
    • ...take part in an ordinary combat mission that advances Mandalorian interests. (5 prestige points)
    • ...establish a sub-faction, organization, or company (i.e., Nite Owls, Death Watch, MandalTech) that operates to promote Mandalorian interests. (5 prestige points)
    • ...take part in law-enforcement activities that keeps Mandalorian Space clean of criminals, spies, and other dissidents. (5 prestige points)
    • ...claim a bounty to show that Mandalorians are effective bounty hunters as well as traditional soldiers (5 prestige points + 2 if PC bounty)
    • ...aid an ally of the Mandalorians, whether this be an individual or an entire faction. (4 prestige points)
    • ...sabotage an enemy of the Mandalorians in some meaningful way. (3 prestige points)
    • ...establish a small outpost for the Mandalorians in a non-Mandalorian system. (3 prestige points)
    • ...take part in an ordinary mission (with medium to low risk of danger or death) on behalf of the Mandalorians. (2 prestige points)
    • ...compete in a Battle Circle match against a fellow Mandalorian. These matches are death-disabled and are merely meant to prove one Mandalorian's combat prowess over another, but also serve as good combat practice. (1 prestige points)
    There is no definitive penalty for failure in Mandalorian culture. However, acts of dishonor, such as fraternizing with the enemy, killing without a purpose, abandoning a mission without a reasonable cause, failure to obey orders from a superior, etc., can result in the loss of some or all of a Mandalorian's prestige.

    Showing cowardice in the face of danger and in front of other Mandalorians, abandoning one's mission, or failure to comply with orders from a superior officer, in particular, can result in the loss of all of a Mandalorian warrior's prestige and, depending on the severity of the crime, could also result in other punishments.


    Prestige & Rank

    Prestige and rank are directly related. A Mandalorian can apply for a rank-up when the following conditions are met:
    • Mandalorian Marauder to Mandalorian Rally Master (50 prestige points)
    • Mandalorian Rally Master to Mandalorian Field Marshal (150 prestige points)
    The rank-up to Mandalore (Manda'lor) is done by amassing prestige and also gaining the support of the majority of the faction for a warrior's claim.

    It should be noted that gaining points alone is not enough for a rank-up. A warrior's actions are considered as well. For instance, winning the Battle Circle fifty times, while improbable, isn't enough to prove leadership capabilities equivalent to a Rally Master or a Field Marshal.
