    This is a list of some possible ranks when you get to the Create-Your-Own rank level. :) Some, I came up with; some, other members came up with. If you have your own ideas, please run them past me first before posting them here. Thanks! :)

    GENERAL RANKS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC:
    Anyone can apply for general ranks.

    Greenseer: speculator
    Maester: knows the facts of the world of Westeros
    Mummer: Quote-memorizer
    Sword of the Morning: battle expert
    Khal/Khaleesi: battle expert and Dothraki expert
    Lord Commander of the Kingsguard: expert on the various Kingsguard
    Dragonrider: Expert on the Targaryens, not just the kings but important non-rulers as well
    Lightning Lord: Expert on outlaw bands
    Warg: expert on the wildlings
    Kraken: expert on the Greyjoys and the Iron Islands
    Red Viper/Sand Snake: expert on Dorne

    PRIVATE RANKS:
    These are ranks that people came up with on their own. NO ONE ELSE may use these ranks without the express permission of whoever came up with it. If they're not willing to share, please don't argue with them. Thanks. :) If you come up with your own rank that you don't want to share with anyone else, please run it past me first.

    Kingslayer: Expert on Jaime Lannister and his previous counterpart, Ser Criston Cole Kingmaker. (Renzo)
    Lord Commander of the Night's Watch: expert on the Night's Watch. (Ice)



    (I changed my original intention and rather than just have general topics, you can be experts on various regions, etc.)

    Is there one for being an 'expert' on nothing?

    Like Moonboy...Or Patchface?

    :p Sorry, but nope. To be the "top-ranker," you have to demonstrate knowledge of aSoIaF/Westeros and prove that you're worthy of the rank. And if one of your fellow Guildmates has a question about a particular area that you're the expert in, they can ask you about it.

    I think that if he videotapes himself singing "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" at the top of his lungs than he should be allowed the rank of "Grand Jester"

    Hey, why not. But "Honorary Grand Jester." :p The whole point of this is to prove that you're a maniac and fanatic of ASoIaF. :p And besides, this way, if someone has a question about something, we can rag them instead of asking me. ;) :D

    Um I think to sing that song your a freakin fanatic. I don't think the honorary is needed if he dedicates the time to know all about the jesters from the series.

    lol. well then we'll have to set up some sort of trivia contest between the 2 challengers for the title and the winner will hold the title. the "not winner" will then be of a lesser rank in that area.

    That sounds reasonable.

    I would buy and send you a webcam if you would dance and sing to "The Bear and the Maiden Fair".
