Excerpt from the Amtgard ROP: Award Standards

The Rules of play 8th Edition

Rose: Awarded for service to the club not necessarily related to an elected office. A first level Order of the Rose indicates a very minor service to the club such as picking up trash, while a tenth level Order of the Rose could be comparable to providing consistent, long-term service to the club

Suggested Criteria

By an unknown, possibly Wetlander author. Order of the Rose

Qualification for Masterhood: 10 Orders of the Rose

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

Given for: beneficial service to the club, (Heraldry: devices, rose, Sages: corpora/reeves test, debate,) The following are for the minimum qualifications to get that number of Roses.

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

Belt favor: Burgundy belt favors with a white 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.

Note: The higher the level, the harder it is to achieve more orders of the Rose. No one has ever achieved Master of the Rose status (10th level or higher) without a great deal of self-sacrifice of time, money, sanity, and sometimes friendships. Masterhood is 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 Masters of the Rose to decide if additional criteria is required.
