To : Everyone
Subj: Titles!

Many of you may have noticed the changes to the HONOURS command output the last few days. These
changes weren't random, but were part of an exciting new system of highlighting your achievements
upon your honours: Titles!

TITLES
======
Titles are sometimes included as part of fame, which you can receive from certain quests,
organizations or events.

Syntax: TITLES SELECT [gender]
==========================================
This command will allow you to select a title, which will show under your HONORS like this:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ceraen, the Dire
<<< Pancake Master >>>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
General:
He is 374 years old.
etc...

The title in question will show up in a different color depending on how rare it is. There are four
stages of rarity: Common(white), Rare(Cyan), Epic(Yellow) and Unique(Magenta). The brackets
surrounding the title will not show if you have config screenreader turned on.

If you do not want to use any title, simply select NONE. The gender is optional, and by default will
pick your character's current gender. You can pick any gender, but it will only work for those
titles which have variants.

Syntax: TITLES LIST
====================
Use this command to list any titles you may have available to select.



Note that many fame lines do not have titles attached to them yet. We've set up a forum thread for
you all to post suggestions on titles that you'd like to see attached to existing fame lines here,
or edits/improvements to existing titles here: http://forums.aetolia.com/discussion/2819/title-
suggestions/

City leaders! We left the task of deciding what title your Academy's fame should confer. Please send
a message to Tiur or Razmael to organize that.

Penned by my hand on Gosday, the 25th of Midsummer, in the year 472 MA.

    I'd like more mundane titles so even newbies can wear them and not feel left out.
    'Citizen of (city)' EDIT: Anyone who reaches CR2
    'Military Rank' EDIT: Like your current city military rank
    'Elder of (city)' EDIT: Anyone who reaches max CR
    'Alumni of (city)' for doing the academy.

    These too:

    Swept up in true love, she eloped with Vyxsis at the Lover's Carnival of 464. -- True Romantic

    Maybe something for this:
    She has mastered the challenges of Mandre's tower.

    I'd be happy with "Pretty Bug" as a title option!

    But seriously, you can probably have some basic titles from transing a class, like for Syssin, you could have like 'Infiltrator', Teradrim could have 'Earth Warden', Carnifex could have 'Soul Master' or 'Savage'. Stuff like that.

    They'd be common titles, obviously. Along with racial titles, Standard or Endgame races.

    Congregations/Orders/Standard Quest Honors Lines could give you Rare titles

    One-time/yearly events could give you Epic titles, or special events like the cook-off thing.

    @Rhyot's Chaos Lord thing would be a Unique Title qualifier, for sure. Things that are likely given only to one person during a great event or to mark a major achievement in Aetolia's History.

    Those are some ideas that come to mind, very general, but hopefully worth expanding on.

    (Edit) Should probably read the entire first post before I go on a typing rant.. but I've not slept in forever so I'll leave it!

    maybe something for being/having been guildmaster that would be unique for each guild. for example, former Indorani gms are all part of 'the unholy circle' - maybe something else for the title, but maybe you get what i mean? people who've somehow gm'd more than one guild (give the bbz a shot jeez) could choose which they like best.

    perhaps something for characters who have been citizens of every city? probably somewhat common, but perhaps of RP interest for some folks.

    def echoing request for order-related titles, including unique ones for leadership roles as applicable.

    something Explorers related? like for current/former #1s and worldwalkers?

    perhaps certain kinds of quasi-official player orgs could be given the option of buying titles? like, for instance, family clans over a certain size could buy a custom-ish title (e.g. "Patriarch of Carnivalis") for 100cr or something, which they then grant to the clan head or all people at a certain position/rank. not sure how to implement that without it becoming madness, but maybe someone less sleep-deprived will have an idea.

    something for Sect participation and achievement... although the latter may need to wait until the Sect rating system is less hilariously broken.

    etc.

    i'll come back later with some ideas for the actual verbiage... maybe. probably. perhaps.

    Just to clarify, since there seems to be a bit of confusion. Titles are explicitly attached to the fame lines that show under the Fame section of your honours. System doesn't presently support titles for anything else (though can certainly be expanded in the future!).

    What we were looking for suggestions on was titles to add to the fame lines that currently don't have one.

    Some of the suggestions people have been making are for fame lines that already have titles attached. Here are some of them, using my honors.

    It's a manual process. Unique is reserved for really special honors that are given to only one player. Epic is for insane mobs, quests or events. Rare would be things like colossal eld, less insane mobs or honors a handful of people have already. Common is everything else. It's really up to the celani creating the title. For example the Legendary Game Hunter title has increasing rarities for season 1 and season 2.

    Fairly likely that we missed a few of those, so let us know if you notice titles that should be more common or rarer. We'll certainly consider it!

    Just a few suggestions for what honors lines I've been able to find. Dunno if any of them have specific titles to them yet.

    Member of the Artisanal fellowship: Illustrator
    Member of the Bardic fellowship: Wordweaver

    Slight ego trip here, since I won this one:
    Winning the ice sculpture contest of 470 MA: Master Sculptor


    Member of the Resistance against Drakkenmont: Freedom Fighter

    Denied the Doomsayer's glory, rending his blood-thirsty tribute asunder: Doom Buster
    Thriving in the face of destruction, helped research the brew that ended the Bloom: Assistant Researcher
    Survived the questioning of Herolt, the decipherer: Quizmaster
    Frightening off the crows: Crowbane
    Entered the Shattered Vortex and slain a mighty amalgamation of corpses: Slayer of the legion
    Brought rest to the anguished spirits of the Bloodwood: Ghost Whisperer
    Found a golden ticket during the Year 300 Carnival: Golden Boy/Girl

    Killing any one of the colossal eld could give a single title: Titan killer
    Slain the colossal flame eld
    Slain the colossal shadow eld
    Slain the colossal tornado eld
    Slain the colossal rock eld
    Slain the colossal tidal eld


    I don't know if anyone still has these, but for the few that do: Dragonslayer
    Slain the White Dragon, Verioth.
    Slain the Phantom Dragon, Quoloth.
    Slain the Green Dragon, Iraneth.


    Served as a Speaker of the Heartwood: Speaker of the Heartwood

    These ones could all give a singular title: Guardian of Dendara. Or there could be separate titles for each one.
    Fought in the battle against Valakris, the Bellower.
    Stood vigil over Dendara and bound Kaarn once more.
    Fought in the battle against Alshek, the Sky-Darkener.


    Delved the forgotten caverns under Mournhold and emerged with mind intact: Iron willed
    Delving deep below Mournhold, confronted and killed Migyar's child: Prophecy Breaker

    Elected to the ruling council of a city: Politician

    Once served as champion of a Divine Order: Divine Champion
    Served with aplomb as the Cardinal of a Divinity: God Touched


    Marshal with the Demonsbane:
    Marshal of the Demonsbane
    Marked as a Guardian of the Augerweald: Guardian of the Augerweald

    Slain Belmith Scornhead:
    Slain Luzith, the Forgotten:
    Slew the chaos-empowered Tolonar, Prince of the Dun Valley:
    Repelled the massive eld swarm that dwells within the Iernian Fracture:
    Killed Zsarachnor, the Vampire Lord: Vampire Slayer
    Slain Vukub Ysin'zhu, the Ogre Baron: Ogre Slayer
    Defeated Llazuth, Demon Spider Queen: The Exterminator


    Aided in the banishment of Ati, the Shadow before It attained a physical form: Banisher of Shadows
    Aided in the destruction of Ati, the Shadow: Destroyer of Shadows

    EDIT: Looking at the titles I have, Legendary Game Hunter season 1 doesn't have an associated title yet, so for gamehunter1 I'd suggest Big Game Hunter/Huntress.

    Are you sure? There's definitively titles attached to them. It's named gamehunter and the second season is gamehunter2.

    In regards to the coloring/rarity, are we able to make suggestions for that too? The one that I picked is showing up as common, but I think only four people have it, for instance.

    Relatedly, it would be nice to have the fame stuff seperate from honours proper, like how Imperian has HONORS and then QUESTHONORS (usually just shortened to QHONORS). Some people's honours are like a freaking mile long.

    Also would be nice if you could config off the <<< >>> brackets, I can see those giving some systems an aunerism and I find them kinda obnoxious looking personally.

    I don't know about everyone's events, but the teradrim_bond was from an event with just a few people. I think it would probably be epic, based on Ceraen's description.

    Not sure if we'll add a config for the <<< >>> display anytime soon as the CONFIG listing is already getting cluttered without adding new configs for every minor thing like that.

    To compromise though, I threw together a quick trigger you can put into Mudlet to get rid of them:

    Pattern, perl regex: ^(\s*)<<<(.*)>>>(\s*)$

    Script:
    selectString(matches[3],1)
    r,g,b = getFgColor()
    selectCurrentLine()
    deleteLine()
    setFgColor(r,g,b)
    echo("\n"..matches[2].." "..matches[3].." "..matches[4])

    @Phoenecia So it seems I misunderstood how that quest and its honors works. You can only get gamehunter2 if you have gamehunter, since it's not a matter of "season 1 and season 2" but the number of seasons of the quest you've done. It removes gamehunter when giving you gamehunter2.

    P.S. the second season has a higher rarity set.

    @Sarita Changed it.

    Similar to @Sarita with the teradrim_bond, only a handful of us were there for the 'end the Crystal event' boss mob fight. I'd like to think that would qualify for Epic rather than Rare, but again...this is entirely a selfish request I didn't think would even be humored.

    Would it be possible to add a fame line for those who have completed the best quest in the game, the quest for the mighty PANDA stance?

    Then give them the title of 'DRUNKEN MASTER'. All caps because they're shouting.

    I'm using 'Capturer of Hearts' which isn't exactly rare but it's pretty much impossible to get unless the event returns. It feels rare but it's a regular white color. Same with the golden ticket.

    "She regaled a tale of wonder in the Storytelling Contest of 470 MA."

    First, a quibble with phrasing - 'regaled' isn't intransitive. It takes an object. As phrased, this currently reads like I'm regaling the tale of wonder itself with an unstated indirect object. This is grammatically strange.

    Intransitive solutions: replace 'regaled' with 'told'.
    Transitive solutions: 'She regaled the audience with...'

    (The intransitive fix seems better to me, but it's your call.)

    ...anyway I think "Taleweaver" would be a neat title to be associated with this fame line.

    (I'd suggest other ones, so as not to be self-centered, but other folks hit the big ones already.)

    He bent earth and air to his will to close an alien rift in the town of Mournhold. - The Last Magi (or The First and Last of the Magi)

    Explanation
    The reason I was able to do this when no one else could, was that I was a Magi before, and of the people at that time, no one else had ever held all 4 elements as a Magi. I have roleplayed since then that I exhausted my last tether to the two planes that I still managed to hold from my years as a Magi. As it is a unique title, held only by myself, I was hoping to infuse in it my oft held title, First Magi, as I was, the first guilded Magi, and the first secretary, and then first Guildmaster, with the Last of the Magi.
