When beginning the game, all players start at the same Rank, Village Idiot. There are 23 different Ranks in total, each of which has sub-ranks within. From the rank of Knight there is a choice of masculine or feminine titles, the form of title given will depend on the gender the player selects for their avatar. The cost, in honour, of promoting through the ranks increases at each new rank title. As well as increasing the number of vassals each Lord may have, it also opens the Research to own more Villages. Each promotion gives the user three (3) Research points to use for new technologies and skills, as well as allowing access to branches of Research which were previously unavailable. Ranking up also opens new designs for use in players' Coat of Arms.
TIP: Ranks with multiple sub-ranks require you to work through them before you can acquire the next rank. e.g. Freeman has two (2) sub-ranks
Increasing your Rank requires honour, which may be earned in a variety of ways:
- Creating Banquet buildings such as Carpenters' Workshops and holding Banquets
- Building Decorations which allow daily passive honour
- Destroying and/or attacking various Enemy AI.
For more information about the above and other methods of honour gain, please see the honour page.

It is here that you can view the Ranks as you progress through them, as well as see the amount of Honour you need for the next Rank or sub-rank, and see what Achievements you have. To level up, click the top-right button (which shows a crown and a number) while in the ranks screen.
