French Aristocratic Roll the Dice CAF Part 1- May 6th, 1589 🏰

Alrighty, everybody! So the results of the poll showed that The [name_m]French[/name_m] Aristocrats Theme won! Don’t worry, though- I plan on doing all of them at some point! So, without further ado, let’s dive in!

With this first part we will decide exactly where your family will fall into the aristocracy. You will roll to see if you will start as a Duc, [name_m]Marquis[/name_m], Comte, Vicomte, or [name_m]Baron[/name_m]. During this time period, to maintain your family’s title, your family needed to manage their prestige. Prestige was measured on three main factors: how long had a given family been noble (l’ancienneté), into what other families did it marry (les alliances), & what positions its members achieved and what offices they held (les dignités). To keep track of your family’s prestige, I’ve added points next to each option. (You do not have to do this part, lol, just for fun!)

  1. Duc (5)
  2. [name_m]Marquis[/name_m] (4)
  3. Comte (3)
  4. Vicomte (2)
