TITLES - Lusternia Online Help

4.9 TITLES

Titles in Lusternia - up to 30 characters before, and the same after, your 
name. The part before your name is called the prefix. The part after is the 
suffix.

For instance: The Gibber, Rider of the Apocalypse.
PREFIX: The
NAME  : Gibber
SUFFIX: , Rider of the Apocalypse

To gain a title, someone powerful must grant it: guildmaster, guildsecretary, a
high-ranking member of your city, or a Divine Patron.

Changing someone's title costs 50 gold per suffix or prefix changed. Everyone
gets the first prefix and suffix free.

You can see an adventurer's titles by typing HONOURS <adventurer>.

Rules for titles:
1) A title is just that, a title. It is not a sentence.
2) No acronyms in titles (TGO, OBJ, etc).
3) Overly silly titles (our discretion) are bad.
4) Titles that imply you are immortal, or a god, are bad
   ("The Goddess of...," "The mighty Ephemeral," etc.)
5) Titles that purposely attempt to obscure your name are bad.
   ("Jack, Jill, Tom, Jones" for example)
6) Make sure that references to immortals are OK with them.
   ("Gibber, Estarra's pet": be VERY SURE that Estarra is OK with it.)

Generally, shorter is sweeter. Trying to cram all sorts of information into
your title just makes you look silly. In any case, most of you have perfectly
acceptable titles. It's just a few that don't, and you will likely be hearing
from us.
