Outposts in Bormar are in a unique position, thus in order to catalog them, this system has been decided to assign 'ranks' to the Outposts and ensuring that the appropriate ones get the benefits they deserve.
Higher ranks will give your Outpost more prestige and liberties. Once a rank has been attained, it cannot be lost, no matter any censures or penalties you might face.
You will be limited in what you are allowed to build. The leader(s) of the Outpost are ultimately responsible for ensuring that this system is followed. If not, there will be penalties.
Each Outpost rank has a list of requirements that must be met in order to ascend to the next rank.
When your tributes are picked up, the Outpost will be quickly assessed and requirements will be checked off by Bormar officials.
If there are breaches of or at that time, then the penalties will be applied. Discovery of illegal constructions will result in severe punishments.
Technically a placeholder, this rank establishes the Outpost on the Rank System.
