My fellow Zormitans, the Ranking system of old has shed its former skin and been borne anew.

-=The New Republic=-

Autocrat: The leader of Zormite, and final word on all things that concern the Kingdom. Only one will exist at any given time.

This rank is conferred upon the deserving member meant to lead in the end of the current Autocrat's rule.

Chancellor: The Autocrat's right-hand. Performs all functions of the Autocrat in his absence. Only one will exist at any given time.

Directly appointed by the Autocrat, and will be replaced upon the change of the Autocrat at his/her discretion.

Liaison: Ambassador to the leader(s) of the other kingdoms, reports directly to the Chancellor. Performs as special guard to the Autocrat and Chancellor. There can be as many of these as deem worthy.

Appointed by the Autocrat and the Chancellor as a title of honor. This title will remain throughout regime changes. Must have performed above and beyond in the eyes of the kingdom and be recommended by the Inner Circle.

Inner Circle: Classified

-=Elite Guard=-

Vanguard: Serves as the head of the Elite Guard. Responsibilities include regulation of the military and its development. Promotion of deserving members, and demotion of those deserving. There can only be one of these at any given time.

Appointed by the Autocrat and Chancellor, this position will be reappointed by the next Autocrat.

Daymaster/Nightmaster: Each will serve as generals under the Vanguard. There will be one Daymaster and one Nightmaster. These two serve to create a balance in the decision-making processes and forward all potential promotions/demotions on to the Vanguard.

Appointed by the Vanguard. Can be replaced as the Vanguard sees fit. Must be a Harbinger in the Elite Guard for at least two weeks to be a potential candidate.

Harbinger: Lieutenant in the Elite Guard. Serves the Daymaster/Nightmaster directly. There can be as many as necessary.

Promoted by switching to B-Mode permanently while on-tag, while actively remaining on tag proving worthy of the promotion. Minimum level 30. Must apply for the promotion to their respective Daymaster/Nightmaster. Must be a Castellan for at least two weeks with at least one confirmed player kill by two other kingdom members.

Castellan: Light infantry. There can be as many as necessary.

Must serve as an Explorer for a minimum of two weeks. Must apply for the promotion to your prospective Daymaster/Nightmaster. Minimum level 10.

Explorer: Scout. There can be as many as necessary.

Entry level to the Military. All members who wish to join the military will start as Explorers. Must be a citizen for at least two weeks. Applications for the military can be filed directly with the Mithralie.

-=Government Body of Zormite=-

Archiagos: Governor of Zormite. Coordinates with the Repisidan from each town and the residing Archion(s)/Archioness(es). There can only be one Archiagos.

Must be an Archion/Archioness or Repisidan. Elected by the people through election by the Council of Zormite. Each Archion and Archioness represents five votes and will vote accordingly as their sponsors vote. The Archiagos will remain in office for two months. Another election will be held on the third to last day of the Archiagos' term with the winner of that election assuming leadership. The term officially starts on the fifteenth of the month.

Archion/Archioness: Councilman/councilwoman of Zormite. Makes decisions based upon backing parties. There will be as many as necessary.

It takes five citizens to back a seat in the council. This position is then filled as long as the five individuals are not represented by another council member. Remember, as citizens or any other higher ranking member of the kingdom, you represent one vote for one Archion/Archioness of your choice. You cannot back more than one Council member at one time.

Repisidan: Mayor. Responsible for their respective town and surrounding countryside. Must constantly beautify the town and improve on the development of their town. There will be one for each town.

Voted on by the community, replaced when another vote has been called by the town's citizens. The town will call its own vote the fifth of each month to decide if a change in Repisidan needs to be made. If a new Repisidan has not been elected by the thirteenth of the month the current Repisidan wins by default. The term starts officially on the fifteenth of the month.

Grouchier: Tax collector. Will collect weekly taxes from the non-member houses or foreclose on their houses. There will be one of these.

Must have served as Paradhon for one term of no less than 2 weeks with no complaints about delivery.

Paradhon: Post Officer for the people. There will be one of these for each town.

Appointed by the mayor to serve for a period of one month. Replaced at the Repisidan's discretion.

Mithralie: Head Intelligence Officer of Zormite. Gathers useful information utilizing a web of informants, spies, and good old fashioned legwork. The Mithralie will also be in charge of updating and releasing the Weekly Zorm. Also in charge of maintaining the positive growth of the newer undecided members. There will be one of these.

The Citizen's test is as follows:

Wanderer: A visitor to Zormite who has taken residence. There can be as many of these as necessary.

This is the entry level rank for any new member of Zormite. THEY MUST KNOW HOW TO ROLE-PLAY. There is no level restriction as long as they have acquired at least 30 hours of activity online and have demonstrated a general knowledge of how to exist in Kingdoms. Note: You cannot build a house until you have been a member for at least forty-eight hours.

Slave: A member who has dishonored himself and the kingdom yet somehow manages to remain in good graces of the kingdom.

This rank is conferred upon those in poor standing with the Kingdom by either offending its members or acting poorly in general.

Inker: The final chance for redemption for those deserving it. A member so low in standing in the kingdom for his/her actions they are good for nothing more than to gather ink at the depths of the ocean.

This is the final chance to redeem one's name in the eyes of the kingdom. If the member proves he is worthy of his slave rank he will be promoted.


-=Mystic Order of Zormite=-

Archifilos: Head Priestess of Zormite. Leader of all Priests and Wizards of Zormite. Keeper of the Historical Documents (forums). There will be one of these.

A traditional place of leadership handed down by the former Archifilos to the deserving member. This rank will remain occupied until the current Archifilos decides to vacate it.

Autocrat:

Ruler with unlimited power.

Since when was the repulic a complete democracy? You two have changed ZR completely. ZR is not the fish people anymore. In fact, ZR is not ZR anymore. Akira said "change is good", yes, good job Akira, look at what this "change" has caused. It seems that with the new ranks, comes the rules so that only Graynt and Etien can have the highest rights on the kingdom.

Bah...might as well change the kingdom name to Graynt and Etien and force all members to live in a cave.

2 weeks before you can get a promotion to citizen?? Thats quite long...

They must know how to Role-play...why do i see people on Zormite tag harassing others all the time?
It's really amusing when you ask them if they don't have to role play and they answer "Wtf is Roleplay??"

The title Dictator was for a reason, modeled after the Roman equivelant; becoming an Autocrat implies that you are no longer bound by the Constitution?

...

Kefkin, have you read the Constitution?
