Caught Between Worlds
The Rank of a Power is a general indicator of personal and social/political power, and a measure of the sway their Attributes hold over the world. The Ranks are: Least, Lesser, Minor, Intermediate, Major, Greater. Each set of Powers assigns rank different. Change in Rank requires approval in the Celestial Senate for The Light, with higher Ranks granting greater privileges, ability to call and chair committees or subcommittees, and certain procedural shortcuts. Powers of The Dark earn their Rank based on the performance in the Great Game, the requirements of which tend to change. Perhaps they need a certain overall score, or to challenge one of equal or higher status, or win a sudden test of ability. The Old Powers simply recognize when one of their own has advanced to the point of being a higher Rank or reduced to a lower Rank, and respond accordingly.
