The Acolytes are the cream of the crop in OBD and is one of the highest ranks achievable within the guild short of Guildmaster.  The Acolytes are the fiercest, most honorable, most just and most righteous of the warriors and mages.  The rank of Acolyte can be achieved by mage and warrior alike, and only 10 Acolytes may serve at any given time.  The Acolytes know their trades like no others and will quickly strike down any opposers the OBD may have.  If there were such a thing as green berets in the medieval world they would choose to be Acolytes.

To achieve the honorable rank of Acolyte one must:
Have at least 3 GM skills.
Have held the rank of Knight Errant/High Sage for at least 3 weeks.
Be a devoted member of OBD and hold the causes of our great guild in the highest regard.
Convince Cain that you are right for the job.
Defeat three out of four current Acolytes in best out of 5 matches.
Have a squire who has reached the rank of Knight/Sage or Gaurdian/Arch-Magi
Have a current squire.

Since there are only 10 Acolytes allowed to serve at any given time any Acolyte who has been defeated in a duel has a chance of being lowered in rank to Gaurdian/Arch-Magi.  In the best out of 5 match duels when someone is attempting to achieve the rank of Acolyte the person attempting to achieve the rank will be given 4 duels which will be decided by Cain.  Out of those 4 duels the person attempting to achieve the rank will have to win 3.  Out of the Acolytes defeated the one with the most losses in those duels will be forced to drop in rank in the guild.  This only happens with the person attempting to achieve the rank succeeds in becoming an Acolyte though.
