The initial design of the game called for a Knight class in the Albion Realm. The observant follower of Dark Age of Camelot has noticed that the class/guild list for the game no longer lists Knight as a playable class. The reasons for this are many, but essentially, we decided to reserve the title of Knight for players that have a large number of Realm Points ï¿½ i.e. they show that they are indispensable to Albion. So, in the game if you ever see someone with the title of ï¿½Knightï¿½, you can assume they are a Realm leader; someone who has done many brave deeds in the defense of Albion.
We may extend this to have different high-level Realm titles for the different classes, so that Wizards and Sorcerers would be called ï¿½Archmageï¿½, Paladins and Armsmen would be ï¿½Knightsï¿½, etc. Weï¿½re still working on that concept.
