    Remember this is a guild we're talking about, not a nation. I don't think a guild would have a King or Emperor, it doesn't sound right to me.

    Perhaps:
    Page, Squire, Knight, High Knight, Captain, Grand Captain/Commander etc

    maybe someone can help me also with some rank names. My guild is new and called Ambition of the Reckless so far trying to come up with something unusual or different has eluded me. Thanks in advance

    Keep it simple.

    Rank 1 = One Douchiest
    Rank 2 = Two Douchier
    Rank 3 = Three Douche
    Rank 4 = Four Average
    Rank 5 = Five Above Average

    Surprised that nobody took the liberty to put Führer into the ranks yet.


    Nvm, ranks were requested to be medieval. Oh well.

    One guild I was in had a similar rank, "kusenkantaja", literally "bearer of piss". IIRC the rank was given to the person who was or used to be responsible for recruiting. Don't ask why, I don't know, but I guessed he was not very proficient in finding good recruits

    OT: If you want to go for military ranks, the peon/peasant, soldier, sergeant, captain, commander would probably work, whereas if you like civilian ranks, the "apprentice, craftsman, journeyman" thing kind of reminds the wow professions a bit too much. Maybe go with the different classes of people, like peasant, citizen, craftsman, military, aristocrat? And something like "Great and Lovable Leader" for yourself (guessing you are GM).

    I gave my alt guild ranks as outlined by Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. From highest to lowest:

    1 The Chaucer
    2 Parson
    3 Manciple
    4 Canon's Yeoman
    5 Second Nun
    6 Nun's Priest
    7 Monk
    8 Melibee
    9 Sir Thopas
    10 Prioress

    Frankly, I wish there were more ranks so I could get ranks in like "Wife of Bath," "Reeve," and "Man of Law." Life is cruel, though. The ranks confuse people, but it's worth it for the pretentious feeling I get for having made the names up.
