The local library has a D&D group that's starting and they suggested to create a character ahead of time.
For my half orc barbarian I've chosen the Soldier Background, but I'm not sure what organization I could belong to.
What military organizations are there that would give the benefit of “Military Rank” based on the Soldier background (PHB 140)? Would that be the same as one of the factions (Harpers, Order of Gauntlet, Emerald Enclave, etc.)? I have done some research but my results have been lacking.
Additionally, what benefit (if any) does the “Specialty” evoke? Specifically looking for answers that reference written WoTC materials but open to other interpretations.
