10.6 City Ranks

Aside from the formal governmental positions (see HELP CITYSTRUCTURE), a citizen in a city-state can have one of six general ranks within a city. These ranks represent your general status within the city, and as you grow in rank, you will have the ability to call upon minor city-related powers.

When you join a city, you will automatically be of the lowest rank. HELP
CITYRANK will show you a list of the city ranks in your city. In order  
to move up in rank, you must be cityfavoured by members who have gained 
that privilege. The favour of the head of the council is more valuable  
than the other council members. However, if these same people find that 
your actions bring shame to the city, they may disfavour you, which can 
potentially reduce your city rank.

The abilities city rank confers are:

  3) WRITELOG <msg>
     Allows you to append your city's log.

  4) PREFIX/SUFFIX <who> <text>
     Manipulate the titles of lower-ranked citizens.

  5) CITIZEN <who>
     Induct another adventurer into your fair city or commune.

  6) CITYFAVOUR <who> <reason>
     Bestow your cityfavour upon a citizen, possibly increasing their city rank.
     CITYDISFAVOUR <who> <reason>
     Like cityfavour, but to express dissatisfaction with a citizen's actions.
