Houses are comprised of a House Summit or Leadership, and a number of members.. The House Summit consists of two positions - the Quaestor and the Aedile. The Quaestor is the primary command position of the House, with the Aedile acting as an assistant. The Aedile also serves as acting commander when the Quaestor is on leave. Houses can receive titles upon being placed in a Rite of Supremacy Vendetta. These titles are based upon the House's placing. For example, the first placed house would receive the title "First House of the Brotherhood". These titles are held by the unit until another Rite is held and the House is displaced.
DutiesThe House Summit is charged not only with guiding the activities of their members, but also with integrating their House into the Brotherhood as a whole. As such, these positions are important in mediating between the wills and needs of those above and below in the command chain. Duties of the House Summit include:
- maintaining a House website, with an up-to-date roster, news page and events, etc
- running competitions within the House and with rival Houses
- forwarding any communications from higher in the chain of command to Battleteam Leaders
- reporting to Clan Summit and Order Leaders on a regular basis
- making promotion and/or award recommendations where appropriate
- set an example, both in conduct and activity (ie. following the Articles of War, participating in competitions, on message boards, etc.)
- develop and maintain a House "identity" including an updated House history, list of possessions, etc.
- promote competitions and other events within the Dark Brotherhood
PowersThe Summit has the power to award medals for activity. The Aedile may award up to the Star of Eos, while the Quaestor can award up to and including the Steel Cross. In addition, the Summit may award sanctioned medals for approved competitions. Lastly, the Summit may recommend promotion for members of their Battleteams based upon previous achievements.
AppointmentThe Summit is appointed by the Master-at-Arms if the House is not part of a Clan. The appointment rank for Aedile is Guardian (GRD), while the Quaestor's appointment rank is Dark Jedi Knight (DJK).
