I tried looking up some older rank names (as well as the ones you suggested aj) and here's an idea, just basic ranks that are easy to pronounce and remember, nothing special or extravagant:

Leader: Guide [hp] -- Generally the leader of the group, their main job is to guide the group, and not necessarily rule with an iron fist, but to take ideas from the group and implement them through a voting system. They're most important job is memorizing the way to each oasis, and teaching their shaman to do the same.

Second: Shepard [hp] -- Chosen by the Guide at a sacred ruin. The Guide goes there to pray, and claims the spirits of ancestors guide them in making their choice. The Shepard is the apprentice to the Guide, and their most important job is to memorize the paths to the oasises, so that one day, they may lead the group there with the changes of the seasons. They may also accept joiners when the leader isn't present.

Doctor: Shaman [s/hp] -- The shaman uses medicinal herbs throughout the desert to cure ailments, but they're also important in that they ward off evil spirits. Before battle, or before a long hunt, the shaman performs a ritual, setting a small fire inside of a small stone totem, and allowing the warriors to take a breath. This ritual supposedly makes the warriors and hunters stronger, and is said to protect them in battle, or from predators.

Soldiers: Warriors [s/hp] -- Warriors are the protectors of the group, they patrol the borders, protect caravans, and enforce the rules.

Members: Workers [not hp] -- Artisans, Ranchers, Farmers, gardeners are all included within this rank.

Apprentices: Apprentices [not hp] -- For people that don't know a craft or a skill. They are required to learn in order to contribute. An apprentice may choose a specific path, such as medicine, or crafting, or combat and etc. They will be assigned a mentor that specializes in their chosen path, although group training and classes are often held by all members of the group based on their own experiences.

ya know, for those of ya that dont like deserts, we were talkin in the discord and a few of us thought of bringing back this group, which used to be northstar i believe?

http://www.bearbonesrp.com/index.php?topic=8.0

Like maybe an old Northstar member wants to return to their roots so they go back and re-establish St Peters. There could be some changes, to the rules and whatnot, to make it more welcoming for people looking for second chances, and more additions, like a horse race track outside the city for entertainment and stuff.

just gonna bump at this?

i'm not really sure a doctor/shaman rank would be wise? maybe as a specialty or a title, but i usually find that unless there's someone competing for the rank, people who end up in healing ranks can get away with falling inactive because "we need a doctor regardless"
and i think another s/hp could be useful? if the warriors were, say, shp's, then a hp, or the reverse. i think warrior's could be a cute shp, and maybe @aj. 's idea of paladin's as the hp role?

otherwise i think the roles + sheo's bigger post overall complete the tasks so far??

Agreeing with Van, while having someone with medical knowledge is important, using a title seems a better idea than a rank. Also, I do love the idea of Paladin as a high position.

actually i just went through this whole thread and sheo has pretty much done everything as far as officiating the group in terms of territory, ranks, etc. in the post here and firming up the ranks in the above post. i think we’re done. as staff said, they just need to present it to the site as a whole now.

Okie so!! The response to this thing is late, and Iím super sorry for that.

With the activity Bearbones is at, we canít support another frontboard. Yes, the site has been due in another front board for a while, but the activity of the site canít hold this all up. ND fell due to the lack of activity throughout the site, and while the activity has improved since then, it hasnít improved enough to support another front board.

There hasnít been that much interest shown in the ideas Sheo has round up. So far, only three people have shown interest, compared to the larger number of members the site has. If there was more interest, then weíd definitely add the board. But there isnít, and unfortunately three members canít sufficiently sustain a front board.

If the site increases in its activity, this wouldnít be an issue. However, even the current two front boards we have right now have been slow; much slower compared to how BB has once been when it was able to support three front boards.

Of course, by all means, keep plotting the group! If people show lots of interest in Sheoís rounded up ideas, the board will become a thing; I canít guarantee a front board, but maybe a back board? (Back board requirements can be read here!) And if it does well, then itíll get that promotion to front board. (The possibility of a promotion also applies to current back boards, of course!)
