Clan and House Guidelines

General Clan Policies

  • All Clans have a Consul, a Proconsul and a Rollmaster. If a Consul will not be filling one of these slots, he or she should explain why to either the Master at Arms, the Grand Master or the Deputy Grand Master
  • Clans may select a single Clan name to award to members at their discretion; see the Wiki for additional information on Clan Titles under the Titles article.
  • New Clan Names for a unit (that is, an entirely new name) must be approved by the MAA/DGM/GM. This does NOT refer to members being given the name, but entirely new names.
  • Clans may have up to three Battleteams, plus an additional one per House. Battleteams may be aligned to the House level, or to the Clan level.
  • Clan Titles and slots in the Round Robin Join Rotation are based on Clan status and are never decreased by probationary status of a Clan in regards to House number/total membership in the Clan as mentioned below.

Additional Houses

  • Any House added to a Clan will have at least a Quaestor. The Clan in question may choose not to utilize the Aedile position, and especially for small Clans, this is encouraged.
  • Clans may apply for houses to the GM, DGM, and MAA if they feel the activity is sufficient, and if membership totals are such that the additional leadership slot from the Quaestor position will be useful.
  • House applications must include the name of the House, potential leadership of the House (at least the Quaestor), and how the House will improve membership experience in the Clan.
  • Clans with thirty five members or more are heavily encouraged to have one house. No Clan below thirty members may add a house.
  • Clans with fifty or more members are heavily encouraged to have two houses. No Clan below forty members may add a second house.
  • In addition to raw membership numbers, The Grand Master or Deputy Grand Master will use participation-based metrics to assess whether to accept applications for a House. These metrics will include, but are not limited to, number of unit-level competitions members are participating in, Vendetta participation, activity outside of competitions (e.g. Clusters of Fire and Ice), and Brotherhood-wide competition participation outside of Vendettas.

Disbanding Houses

  • Clans with a house will enter a probationary period of six months if the Clan drops below 25 members. If a Clan has below 25 members at the end of a 6 month probationary period, the House will be dissolved.
  • Clans with two houses will enter a probationary period of six months if the Clan drops below 35 members. If a Clan has below 35 members at the end of this 6 month probationary period, one House will be dissolved of the Clan leadership's choosing.
  • In addition to raw membership number, The Grand Master or Deputy Grand Master will use participation-based metrics to assess Clans on probation status. These metrics will include, but are not limited to, number of unit-level competitions members are participating in, Vendetta participation, activity outside of competitions (e.g. Clusters of Fire and Ice), and Brotherhood-wide competition participation outside of Vendettas.

New Member Designations

Currently, Clans receive new members evenly on a rotating basis. No longer will new members be distributed based on House number. Under new policy, Clans will receive the same number of recruits regardless of the number of Houses they have. For example, if a Clan has two Houses, they will receive a same number of new members as a Clan without a House during a single pass of the round-robin system.
