Recently, especially related to the Renaissance, I have seen quite a few people make comments along the lines of, "I try to be a combatant, but I am a scholar." and " I'm a combatant, but I also attempt to be a scholar."
While it is prett clearly defined what a "combatant" is, I wonder if "scholar" is less concrete in the world of Achaea. Is it merely a designation for a non-combatant? Can anyone just don the title with little to no effort? Is it a catch all title for ritualistic, crafters, politicians, clergy, fanatics, and actual scholars?
As as someone who has put considerable effort into it, I wonder what the basis for being a legitimate scholar by Achaean standards is compared to what it takes to be considered a legitimate combatant.
