    Those two titles are reserved specifically for them because they're the ones who came up with the titles. If you want to join those ranks, you'll have to ask them first.

    Nah, people will still have equal rank, so there will be two Greenseers, etc. (App and I are going to be Greenseers.)

    Yes, you can (I've got a few in mind myself). You still have to write multiple essays, however.

    ;)

    Oh, and also as a note, please check out the first post in the ASoIaF Guild for details on how this will be run. :) I've also added the "apprenticeship" idea, for those of you who haven't checked it out yet.

    I think you should still have the title of Grand, High etc. for whomever knows the most about any topic. u can make someone else do those tests.

    I don't think thats fair, I'm the one who came up with the Kingslayer idea, and what to do to hold the rank. Same with Ice. If I'm going to think up my own rank, I at least want it to be exclusive to me.

    Yea I kind of agree with K'shar....I mean anyone could make up the rank of GRAND MASTER SEER OF ALL, and be the only one holding it, but the title would mean nothing if no-one else can challenge it, because you wouldn't prove that you are more worthy of holding it than another.

    Maybe we should take Kingslayer/Whatever Ice's was off the list and then make an additional clause to the rules. If you make up your own it only applies to you, blah blah blah.

    I understand completely.

    But you see, Ice and Renzo came up with their own ideas. It's their choice whether to share it, and I'm not going to make them share the title with others if they want to or not.

    Good idea, thanks App. :)

    As for grand/high whatever, I'm kind of iffy on that. But if someone wants to start up a poll for it and there's a clear majority, I'll change it.

    I think anybody should be able to apply to whatever rank they wish to become...

    Convince Ice and Renz. They said that they specifically wanted those ranks, and Renz at least wants that rank to be his. If you can talk to him and convince him, then that's fine with me.

    But I don't see it as a hollow title. If you climb through the ranks being tested and whatnot, rising to each level, finally being able to create YOUR OWN rank, why can't I have a title exclusive to me? I would have earned it, so it'd hold a sense of achievement for me.

    If I thought I knew more on one topic in ASoIaF than anyone else, I would want my own rank too. But I don't. :(

    Hey, I never said I knew more than anyone. My point is I came up with it, and the last rank you can achieve is: "Create-Your-Own-Rank", is it not?
