I have a question regarding two alternate ranks in the Inquisitor's Handbook, the Templar Calix of the Scholastia Psykana (pg 80) and the Mechanicus Secutor (pg 68). Under the "Becoming" section of each alternate rank they talk about it being likely that as the acolyte spends experience they will advance several ranks in their career. Does that mean that this alternate rank covers more than one rank of the career? If so doesn't that mean these extra ranks advances are treated as elite advances if the GM were to allow them? And how would you determine how many ranks of the original career are replaced by these alternate ranks?
Any opinions on this would be appreicated.
