Nobles don't 'spend winter' cooped up within their homes. Only commoners do that because they don't have enough food and clothing to endure the cold weather. Nobles must continue living their luxurious lives regardless of the seasons by holding banquets which span night after night, attending balls to recite poems and invite the beautiful and gentle noble ladies to a dance and even have a secret rendezvous with one of them during the cold winter night to get to know each other more “deeply.”
The contract of oath was a guarantee a liege gave to his vassals. If the vassal carried out the task given by their liege, they could go about it however they wanted without needing the permission or interference of their liege. Usually, an oath contract came in three copies. Apart from the liege and vassal's copies, there would be another one for public announcement.
There were no lieges that dared to go back on their word on an oath contract. After all, it was the most sacred form of agreement there was. It represented the promise of the liege to the gods and their ancestors.
Formal Attire Edit
Krissen Empire Edit
The formal attire for nobles of the Krissen Empire have a rather simple design: a large white robe with a straight collar which is worn with a V-shaped sash which is draped over the head. The sash is rather wide and it extends down from each shoulder all the way to the knees. An intricate belt is then wrapped around the waist to fasten the sash with the robe.
If the sash has laurel leaves that are embroidered with golden thread with a blooming jasmine flowers amidst them. This is the insignia of the Krissen Royal Family which identified that the family in question is under the jurisdiction of only their members. In the middle of the sash is said family’s insignia. If the sash has a small golden sword, it represents the status of the family as one that became landed nobles due to military achievements.
Iblia Kingdom Edit
The Viscount Kenmays were a blue sash that had the silver embroidery of the stonecrop plant that enveloped the three-ring-insignia of the Kenmays Family and the rose which symbolized the royal family of the Iblia Kingdom.
