Oathbound Rank & Rating
Your rank refers to the level of importance you have received with a faction within the Oathbound system. Rank directly influences your base pay, the kinds of missions you can receive, the choice of loot you'll be given and the priveledges you receive within the army. To improve your rank you'll need to gain rating.
If your rank is akin to your level within Oathbound, then your rating is similar to your experience. Each rank requires a certain amount of rating before you can be promoted. In order to gain rating you'll need to accomplish missions or join your Oathbound Lord in combat. Rating can both increase and decrease depending on how you perform which can lead to your rank being promoted or even demoted.
