The Best Idea I've Come Up With in Recent Times

AlexinaAlexina the Haunted SoulMember Posts: 851 ✭✭✭✭✭
So. I just had an amazing idea, and I think it's one of the more amazing ideas I've ever had.

How about each of the Divine gets a real honours of their own (sort of like how important mobs have theirs)? For new players, it would provide an immediate 'wow' factor and would hint at the rich history in Aetolia, and for the rest of us it might offer tidbits of insight about the Divine that we didn't already possess.

Seeing 'She was born before time was counted.' is nice and all, but there could be so many other sweet and awesome things in there: betrayal, power, hope, destruction, and so on and so forth. A hint where to find their temple. Alliances/connections to NPC villages. All sorts of fun things!

    I love it. Would make sense from a character perspective too - if Honors are supposed to be things that are commonly known, public record and hearsay, about each of us, then certainly divine would have far more floating around about them.

    "She stole the heart of the Muse."
    "He orchestrated the Great Artifice."

    Fantastic idea!

    @Oleis:

    He is subject to the adoration of the Oleisbian Cult.

    @Slyphe:

    He literally can't even.


    Joking aside, this would be excellent. I think for new players it's another learning curve item to have to remember Who's Who and What they hold sway over. It could also be a point of pride among Orders for use in roleplay, like the custom Honours lines some players got for tether-related awesomeness.

    open hand or closed fist would be fine

    I think this would actually be a really great idea. I mean, you'd have to go back in alot of logs to get alot of nice stuff, but still! Great idea!

    @Alexina this is a really great idea! We're talking about it now upstairs, and you'll likely see some new God honours popping up soon.

    .... and maybe a few Celani/Producers, too!

    While stuff is being done with honors, just going to repeat this idea here...

    Moirean said:

    Is there any chance honors could be spiced up and made cleaner? Like, especially, toss clans onto the bottom and/or condense them because they're spaaaammy. Here's a suggested readout:

    *** = New fields to maybe include!

    Moirean Seirath
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    General:
    She is 247 years old.
    She was born on the 20th of Ios, year 175 of the Midnight Age.
    She is considered to be approximately equal to your might.
    She has undergone the Rite of Unity with Ser Toz the Hammer.
    She is a mentor and able to take on proteges.
    She has written a personal background.
    *** She is a publicly listed crafter.
    ---> Since we HAVE crafter listings, they just aren't used very often. Also, please don't make being in the listings clear on logout /tangent
    *** She is the owner of the Lovers' Fling brothel in Delos.
    *** She is the self-proclaimed Queen of the Imps.
    ---> It would be really cool if there was a way to earn via quests or gold certain honors that aren't really event-based but more of a general "this is a big facet of this person's identity". Limit it to 3-5 honors, have it require customization approval and be gold/time intensive to get. It'd be a nifty way for people to kinda "hear gossip" about another character.

    Associations:
    She is a Princeps in Spinesreach.
    She is the Chair of the Secretariat of Spinesreach.
    She is Commander of the Shadow Keep in the Carnifex.
    *** She is the Guildmaster OF THE CARNIFEX, known as Commander of the Shadow Keep.
    ---> Currently it doesn't actually say what guild you are GM of. -_-
    She is a representative of the Divine Order of Iosyne, the Malevolent.
    She is the General in the Divine Order of Iosyne, the Malevolent.
    *** She holds ties to .
    ---> Racial factions/areas we can publicly declare ties to (would also tidy up the whole "I defend this area" stuff)

    Martial Record:
    She is a Phalangite in the army of Spinesreach.
    She is a member of the Resistance against Drakkenmont.
    She has been ranked #1 in the combat rankings.
    *** She's a newblet in the Sect of Blades.
    ---> Sect rank/titles, could maybe be something you can earn/trade in points for
    *** She is known in Delos as a fledgling arena champion.
    ---> Delos rankings? How many Delos events have you won, etc
    *** She currently holds 3rd place in the realm's kills.
    ---> If we're going to have killstats, may as well embrace it, I guess.

    Rankings:
    She is ranked 3rd in Aetolia.
    She is a Worldwalker in the Fellowship of Explorers.
    *** She is ranked #1 in exploration.
    ---> Numerical explorer ranking, since everyone and their mom is a worldwalker nowadays.
    She is a High Bard in the Bardic Fellowship.
    She is a Painter in the Artisanal Fellowship.

    Fame:
    She's done stuffs.

    Clans:
    She is the leader of 10 clans.
    She is a member of 15 clans.
    To view her clan holdings and membership, use CLANHONORS MOIREAN.

    To make things sound even more tragic there, you might consider adding a line about how his marriage was the basis for all mortal marriages to follow or something sappy about the ritual of unity, and then follow it up with the line about the divorce.
