Rack correction for Hobbes

Hobbes, you may have noticed that some of the changes that I made in Dignity within the medals PDF affected your rack, a bit. I'm sorry that I gave you the one with the old arrangement. I think that you're very sweet to have posted your medals in your signature, and so if the idea of going through t...

Hobbes's Gallantry Award!

As I've explained before, the "Queen's Gallantry" medal isn't an award from the forums. The medal has fairly modest "rank", among the other medals, and it has no prestige whatsoever. That's because it's an award from me, personally. With every other medal, I try to present what I believe the consens...
