Earl and Count are the same! Change "Earl" to "Count" and take away the other "Count". Also why would you want to have two Countess ranks?

i think we should draw the line at two in between ranks in Lew of my original idea.

So there's no female 'Earl', it's just Countess again? That is a problem...But just one. The rest is fine!

As for the matter of the length between rank increases...They should be lengthened, but not by too much. Make the rank jumps significantly harder to obtain.

Also, I'm highly in favor of having Earl instead of Count, because Count/Countess is almost as drab as having Prince and Princess. Variety!

The Count of Monte Cristo.. Argh.

Well, you prefer Earl, I prefer Count. The world is round. Let's just wait for Cormyn and that blog post. Then we can commence the outpouring of idea after idea.

Earl/Countess, Count/Countess? Somewhat the same concept of Duke/Duchess.

I would step up and say "that's not how it was because squires turned into knights in the medieval era" but I would be eating my own words at that point.

Well, before "earl" was equivalent to "count", it was indeed akin to "duke". Who cares, earl and count are still separate ranks.

@MrDeeCay's list thingamabob.
I thing you should put soldier after squire because wouldn't a soldier be more important than it? And I agree with the other people that you should replace 'Count' with 'Earl'. Etc. Yeah. Everything else is fine.
