I very often come across falcons that their owners forgot to Sanctuary before leaving Realms. Often, the falcon is not collared, and so is in substantial danger of starving or being permanently killed. I try to get a Knight class to send the bird to safety, but there's not always one available who fits the criteria. Currently, another's falcon can only be sanctuaried by a Knight of higher CR than the one that left the falcon, or a Knight who is in the same House and higher HR than the one that left the falcon.
I was hoping to propose that a CR6 of the same city be allowed to sanctuary a falcon that's been left, even if the CR6 is not of a Knightly class. If CR6 is too restrictive, either CR5 or CR6. People of this CR have presumably been in the city enough that they won't abuse this power or use it frivolously. The reasoning is that CR6 / CR5 and CR6 are sufficiently high up that they are assistants in the city leadership and can be trusted with this task. From the perspective of realism, while a person without the understanding of Falconry cannot have or command a falcon, this simply entails knowing one command, which should be of acceptable difficulty.
My friend proposed an alternative where the person attempting to Sanctuary the falcon merely be a higher CR than the Knight that left the falcon. I strongly disagree with this because some experienced Knights (including Sir/Dames) may have just joined the City as CR1s, and this would give a 22 year old CR2 power over their falcon, potentially creating problematic situations. But, I did want to throw it out there.
Thank you for reading my idea.
