Suggested Criteria

Order of the Garber

Example of a Garber created by Alona

Qualification for Masterhood: 10 Orders of the Garber (Master Garber)

Given by: Monarch, Regent (to 10th), Grand Duke/Duchess (to 9th), Duke/Duchess (to 7th), Baron(ess) (to 4th)

Given for: Making nice garb for others, flag construction, making superior garb for oneself, court, fighting garb that is not armor such as monster garb and class garb, color including hats, masks, gauntlets, cloaks, boots, pouches, etc., needle work. The very finest of Amtgard garb unquestionably improves the atmosphere of the game. No other art contributes more to the appearance of a battle game, and thusly to the feel of the game itself. As much attention as a rumble with boffers may attract, having every participant at least partially garbed is bound to attract even more attention, and more of the positive kind. Included as well would be some forms of armor that would be eligible for garber credits based solely on beauty. It may be that armor is made which is not of sufficiently sturdy materials or construction to earn Owls, but is glorious and should be awarded as garb. The following are for the minimum qualifications to get that number of Garbers.

Limitations: None, however a minimum of 10 of this order are needed to qualify for Masterhood.

Belt favor: Violet belt favors with a Black border and diagonal mark across the bottom. Masterhood will be denoted by a gold braid or ribbon down the middle.

SUGGESTED criteria: All criteria listed here are just that, suggested. They are BY NO MEANS requirements. This Monarch's Handbook is NOT intended to be a barrier between DESERVING individuals and their just rewards; rather, it is intended as a guideline for groups to use for rewarding their populace. If it can be generally agreed that a person deserves a certain award, even if they may not quite pass muster by the letter of This Monarch's Handbook, then they should probably get the award anyway.
