Instead of changing all of the <RANK> references to point to a new character attribute with the conversational rank, make <RANK> "Admiral" for all characters above Captain and introduce a new attribute with the full formal rank name and update the few places where you still want to have the formal rank used. That would be far less work.

Considering that most foundry dialogs should be using the conversational, those would get "fixed" as well.
