However, according to Corpora, the three Orders are equal in rank. 
The use of a chivalry-based vigil and ceremony is perfectly 
consistent with the Game as we play it- or at least how we say (in 
_writing_) we play it.

A lot of vigils are low key like that. For Katrine and I, it was a 
bit like letting Society know that we were 'At Home' to receive 
visitors. (Drop your calling card on the butler's plate like a dear.)

Gunthar- lie back and think of England.
