Is there a reason why the church militant doesn't reward it's knights and (rare) sergeant with medals and promotions?

That sounds a bit like heresy there. Wink

It's a thing about pride; look at pg 47. The sacred orders are supposed to be beyond such petty, sinful things. While this quickly goes into a religious discussion, the point of the sacred orders is that they don't need those things or don't desire them. It's both a weakness of pride as well as a point of pride compared to the corporate armies. The corporate armies need pay, medals, promotions, etc. to keep the troops motivated. The sacred orders are motivated solely by faith or personal conviction. Promotion in the orders should be (note, should be) based on the optimum combination of faith an ability being the reason for one to rise to the top.

Even the papal blessing or rules for matyrdom in the update are mostly for religious commendations for their faith...not a reward for services rendered.

Mechanically, they may be similar or have similar effects, but one is a "bi-product" and the other is a goal.

The Church promotes its soldiers on merit and service time. Senior Knights are granted commands commiserate with the time they have spent in service; Sergeants can be promoted to Knighthood if they serve for long enough. There was also a supplement that awards new titles to Knights if they have survived long enough.
