I'm drawing a blank here and wonder if anyone can help me out.
I want to create ranking titles for a fantasy roleplaying forum, but for a lot of reasons, I don't want to make the titles thematic. I'd rather go with titles that suggest the level of participation and support on a real-life, non-fantasy basis.
I'm thinking of words like "Member", "Patron," "Advisor", etc., but the hierarchy isn't working well. I'd also like the titles to suggest not only level of support, but the quality that can come with long-lived participation. Maybe "Sage" or something at the top?
Can anyone suggest a series of ranking titles that could work in this situation?
Thanks in advance.
