This is my opinion on what the army ranks of the REA should be. Please feel free to inform me on any errors, of if you want me to expand on any more areas. EQUESTRIAN ARMY RANKS REGULAR ENLISTED Tier 1- Miles Tier 2- Miles Primum Tier 3- Corporalis Tier 3- Artifex (specialist)* Tier 4- Servus Tier 5- Servus Legati Tier 6- Servus Primium Tier 7- Servus Dominus Tier 8- Servus Primitivus Tier 9- Servus Imperium Tier 10- Servus Phylarches COMMISSIONED** Tier 1- Militaris Tier 2- Legatus Duo Tier 3- Legatus Tier 4- Navarchus Tier 5- Legatus Primus Tier 6- Principes Tier 7- Centurion STALLIONGRAD*** ENLISTED Tier 1- Soldat Tier 2- Efreitor Tier 3- Serzhant Tier 4- Starshina Tier 5- Praporshchick COMMISSIONED Tier 1- Leytenant Tier 2- Kapitan Tier 3- Mayor Tier 4- Polkovnik Tier 5- Marshal *The Artifex (aka Specialist) rank is a alternate branch of the REA, for ponies who wants to specialize in unconventional military professions, instead of continuing as a regular soldier. These professions are... Medicus- (Medical), In charge of any medical emergencies within any given squad. Argentum- (Financial) The treasurers of the REA, in charge of salaries and financing. Auctoritas- (Security) The authorities of the REA, to secure law and order within the ranks.

Legatus- (Diplomacy) In charge of any communication or diplomacy between other species. Can speak in several different languages. Venatus- (Monster Hunting) Specializes in the extermination of potentially dangerous creatures. When a given militant is awarded a specialist rank, the names above serves as a sufffix to their title. Ex: Artifex Medicus. (Argentum Specialists are never deployed in the field.) **Commissioned ranks, are leadership ranks of the REA. Requires a 2-year enrollment in the Royal Equestrian Officer Academy. Located in Stalliongrad. ***Stalliongrad integrated battalions has an separate army ranking system.
I just wanted to clear up something that I've been wondering about for a while, mostly because a future OC may have relevance to this question and somepony else may need to refer to it in the future. So, if I had a character who wanted to join a pre-established group (ie. the REA or the Shadowbolts), would I be required to ask the leader/creator of that organization for permission for my character to be a part of it? I'm pretty certain I know what the answer will be, but I thought I should ask all the same.
I’ve been noticing quite a number of ponies have been running into trouble with their RPs because of their OC character belongs to a organization and to get said organization approved for lore takes a lot of red tape. Let’s say for the sake of argument, I have an app for an OC character called Big Top, his occupation is that of a circus owner. From here 2 things can happen: I write the lore for his circus. After a week or so of squeezing the creative juices for an initial draft and a month of debate and haggling over the minor details with and within the admin team; the Equestrian version of the Cirque du Soleil is formally introduced to Canterlot.com with open recruitment for anyone who wants to be part of the circus (similar to the Wonderbolts and Shadowbolts) OR I scale down his operations so he’s more of a traveling sideshow operator with about 5 acts that are all pretty much offscreen or NPC characters, and hopefully he can pass application assessment more easily. The point is I’m proposing a truce, the RPers can have their OC character belong to some organization that, while is not what they initially envisioned, still fits their character and the mods don’t have to be stuck between shooting down another’s ideas or the work of effecting QC on the lore so it fits into board canon.
Some of you may have noticed a new section pop up in the Mane Equestria section. This area has a special purpose. Even though it's in the Roleplay Forum itself, it's not actually a Roleplay area. Many of you have had questions or ideas about how to expand the world of Equestria as a roleplay, but until now it's been somewhat scattered and difficult to pin down. Well, the Princesses have decided to open up the Royal Archives for public access! Though submissions must be made to and reviewed by their loyal staff (Simply make a post in the Questions and Suggestions and Private Message the staff) if you have anything you would like to add to it! It's still somewhat under construction, but we'll do our best to provide you with all the information we think you will find useful and interesting about the world of Equestria as it's been established in the Roleplay. This lore is specifically for the Mane Roleplay Equestria, though elements of it can be used in other roleplay areas. This is also where you're going to find answers to some of your most deep and burning questions. Want to know just howadvanced the technology is in Equestria? Want to know about Electricity? Have an idea of where Parasprites come from, and local cures for that pesky Pruney Hoof? It will end up here! Roleplay elements that may be useful for other players as they have established Equestria will appear. As we work out the components of Equestria as it's been established, it will be up to you users to bring things to the staff for consideration. We can't do it without you! You can find the Royal Archives Here. Please mind the dust!
