So when you speak of making the canon on reward titles available, I just have to ask just how Marc Miller see them fitting or not fitting into the OTU.

PS. Another reason why I don't speak up more on the subject is my resolve to try to avoid raining on other people's parades if I can avoid it (and if I remember not to). People get worlds and get exited about it, generating all sorts of material about their world, usually with their avatar in charge of the place. Why spoil their fun by pointing out that any world run by a noble appointed by the Imperium would be a type 6 government or similar dog-in-the-manger carping? Even if I think they don't belong in the OTU.
It's quite likely that they're 4th Imperium titles. Marc's handle is Avery, not Strephon, after all.

Actually, my comment wasn't about the reward titles, it was about the canon status of Signal GK the fanzine material.

The delay on the Dagudashaag material is squarely on me.

As the thread starter I will second Don's comment and point out the thread is about Signal GKs canon status. My reason for asking is transparent and in the thread title, but it was never about anything else than trying to establish the OTU status of the background to Jarsae.

I like fan fiction. I also like to be able to tell it apart from canon. It seems Signal GK is somewhere in the middle.

Regards raining and parades, I shall be having mine on Sylea. No point travelling half the galaxy for a parade on a backwater when we have perfectly good weather control here. I'll send a minion to Jarsea to pronounce the good news.

Mmmm, the card says it is issued by HM Strephon on the back and is signed Strephon, K.

Having just received a card as Marquis Musayid (Deneb 0214), I was wondering whether it is in addition to or replaces my previous title card as Marquis Skull (Spin 2420). I prefer Skull's TL, but Musayid is marginally more earthlike.

Kind Regards

David

There is no reason a noble might not have multiple titles of the same rank. It happened historically.

Which brings up an alternative possibility for actual gaming: If you are dealing with characters at Noble Rank (either during CharGen or during play) who receive a "bump-up" of +1 Soc for some reason, you could reward them with an additional lesser title or additional knighthood (in an Order that they are not already a member) and keep their Social Standing the same instead of giving them the +1.

Or even higher rank in the Knighthood they already have maybe? Which I don't know what that would really mean game-wise.
