You can almoust never achieve the status for your house that it is said 'a lord should have': 5-6 as far as i remember. In reality most minor houses influence only allow a status of 3 perhaps 4 - and given the fact that it is said that member of the house who are not the lord/ lady should have a not so high status this might get almost absurd low status for noble men/ women.

In Char. Generation the lord of the house should have 5, and that make sense the older commander, well respected would have at least 4.
Why the two different systems any way?
aprewett wrote:It was awhile ago we started but I must have read somewhere that other nobles in a house-hold, that work for the House's Lord, would have one less status?
Could be faulty memory.
A Lord can have Status based on the House's Influence. His Lady and Heir can have up to (Lord's max Rating -1), his second son (or runner-up heir) or first-born daughter (outside of Dorne) can have (Lord's max Rating -2), etc
So my Status 3 Lord's grizzled military commander might only have 1. It just did not seem to have any granuality to allow for the small folk and merchants.

Zorbeltuss wrote:Way I understand it is that if you use house creation rules, you need to buy slots for heirs and such with influence, and then PC's can fill those if they want status above 2.
