An award given to those who qualify to run for monarch on the kingdom level. In some Kingdoms this was once a qualifier for a knighthood in the Order of the Serpent, but since Award Standardization this is no longer the case.

Excerpt From the Corpora

4.35 Order of the Hydra

  • awarded by: the Monarch
  • awarded for: entering enough Crown Qualifications events to qualify for the Crown tourney/election
  • limitations: each person may only receive one Hydra per Crown qualifications

Suggested Critera

Taken from an old Monarch's Handbook Possibly from the Wetlands

Order of the Hydra - Qualification for Masterhood:

Given by: Kingdom Monarch (to any level), kingdom Regent (to the 9th), grand ducal monarch (to the 9th), ducal monarch (to the 7th), baronial monarch (to the 4th), shire monarch (to the 2nd)

Given for: Qualify for monarch candidacy at Crown Qualifications (excluding Statescraft events) or the Tournament for the Coronet.

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

Belt Favor: Blackish-purple belt favor with a lavendar border and diagonal marks 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.

Number of awards, Criteria, (not to be confused with who can give them, refer to "given by" for that information)

1st through 2nd For Crown Qualifications (excluding Statescraft events) or the Tournament for the Shiredom in their resident Kingdom. They must qualify and must not run unopposed.

3rd through 4th For Crown Qualifications (excluding Statescraft events) or the Tournament for the Baronial Coronet in their resident Kingdom and has achieved the criteria for the 2nd Hydra. They must qualify and must not run unopposed.

5th through 7th For Crown Qualifications (excluding Statescraft events) or the Tournament for the Ducal Coronet in their resident Kingdom and has achieved the criteria for the 4th Hydra. They must qualify and must not run unopposed.

8th through 9th For Crown Qualifications (excluding Statescraft events) or the Tournament for the Grand Ducal Coronet in their resident Kingdom and has achieved the criteria for the 7th Hydra. They must qualify and must not run unopposed.

10th+ Someone who has a record of superior statecraft/leadership and has achieved the criteria for the 9th Hydra and has qualified for Kingdom Monarch successfully in their resident Kingdom. They must qualify and must not run unopposed.

Masterhood - granted once all the criteria has been fulfilled and the Monarch feels that nothing else is required. In the instance where awards have been garnered from another Chapter it will be up to the discretion of the Monarch with input from the Wetland Master Hydra's to decide if additional criteria is required.

Note: The higher the level, the harder it is to achieve more orders of the Hydra's as they will be at the discrecion of the Kingdom Monarch.
