Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

In other words, a proper awesome person.

And he doesn't have to stand in line at Asda anymore, they'll open a till just for him.

It's one of the little mentioned perks of the award.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

Knighthood OGTFO.

If you rolled 1-5 turn to page 24 for your CBE
If you rolled 6-8 turn to page 16 for your life peerage
If you rolled 9-0 your adventure ends here, entwined with Steve Jackson's horse teethed whiskery skellington.

Wow Gee I didn't think of Googling something when I can get a perfectly good answer on the forums. Seriously I could.
