NDC Military Ranks (Fleet and Armed Forces)

Section 6 is the division of the New Dusk Conclave(NDC) which collectively represents all branches of the military. A ranking system is needed for use across all branches. The New Dusk Conclave's ranking system was originally unconventional but has since adopted more standard ranking systems in order to better facilitate international cooperation and officer exchange.

Payouts are calculated in Duskerian Script (DS). Payouts for enlisted soldiers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and Warrant Officers are all monthly. Payouts for officers and command staff are all yearly.


Below is the ranking and pay chart for the NDC Ground Forces "Duskerian Legion".

Job Codes

Occupations in the NDC military are designated by a job code. This two-letter code is added behind the rank code. These together make troop rosters easier for officers to search. A job code is typically composed of the cadre that the occupation resides within, followed by a letter indicating what the occupation is.

For example, Infantry is a warrior occupation, making its job code “WI” or Warrior, Infantry.
