1. Court Intrigue and Politics: Their role as administrators and rulers makes their lives a complex world of court politics. Intrigue, alliances, rivalries, and power struggles within the noble class are a significant aspect of their culture.

2. Social Hierarchy: The intricate social hierarchy of the nobility often includes different titles, ranks, and responsibilities that come with their positions in society. Different noble families vie for influence and recognition.

3. Heraldry and Symbols: With their special abilities in Heraldry, they emphasise the importance of family symbols, coats of arms, and sigils. Heraldry is a means of displaying lineage, achievements, and affiliations.

4. Formal Rituals and Ceremonies: Nobility often have formal ceremonies and rituals that are part of their culture. These include coronations, weddings, feasts, and other grand events that showcase their status and tradition.

5. Education and Training: There is a vast and complex educational system for nobles, including how they are trained in diplomacy, governance, etiquette, and other skills required for leadership. Often resulting in apprenticeships with experienced nobles.

6. Art and Patronage: Nobility are often patrons of the arts, supporting painters, musicians, and scholars. Using art and culture to enhance their reputation and preserve their family’s legacy.

7. Estate Management: Nobles manage their estates, whether they are vast castles, grand palaces, or sprawling country estates. By overseeing agricultural production, trade, and the well-being of the common folk.

8. Honour and Duels: Wise men don’t die foolesly; thus, there is a system of honour and duelling among the nobility. Disputes are settled through formal duels or codes of honour, emphasising the nobles’ personal integrity.

9. Noble Alliances: Nobles might form alliances through arranged marriages to consolidate power, secure territories, or strengthen their family’s influence. This could lead to alliances or rivalries among different noble houses.

10. External Threats: The nobility deals swiftly and carefully with external threats, such as invading forces, uprisings, or other challenges that could endanger their positions and way of life.

11. Cultural Contributions: Nobles often contribute to the development of law, literature, architecture, and other aspects of culture. Their contributions to the realm’s development and how they shape society’s values are mostly focused on their own wellbeing.

The first claims or bestowing of titles are lost memories of long-dead leaders and subjects. They have been worn or cursed since early F.A. due to testimonials from very old individuals of the N-Erectus. They also span a far more varied range of titles than those we use these days in regard to the reestablished Realm of the High King. But as even the N'Aldaan Emperor Bend The Knee to the High King we use that title as the highest and normally omit Emperor, Jarl and other ‘lesser’ titles.

Nobility have long dwelt in great castles and large cities. They are a closed society of administrators who live in the midst of or adjacent to the various courts and guilds of the realm.
