Title system

From Krakiipedia, the unofficial free GemStone IV encyclopedia.

Jump to: navigation, search

The title system is the system that controls the use of prename, postname, and cultural identifiers. When looking at a player, the fields show up as follows:

You see [prename] Ildran Thardmoor, the [postname].
He appears to be a [culture] [race].

Prename Titles

The primary set of prename titles are attained by achieving certain characters levels in GemStone. In the past, only the Lord and Lady titles existed upon reaching level 20, and achieving this status, which was referred to as Titling, was considered a significant accomplishment. Often, when a character titled an announcement would be made on the 'Amunet' which was followed by many congratulations from fellow players, and at times celebration.

Present day GemStone finds a more expanded title system, but also a lessening of the importance associated with titling.

Level Title
0 Novice
3 Apprentice
10 Journeyman / Journeywoman
20 Lord / Lady
40 Great Lord / Great Lady
70 High Lord / High Lady
100 Grand Lord / Grand Lady

Storyline-granted prename titles

Characters can sometimes be granted special prename titles through participation in storylines. Some of the existing prename titles are:

  • Sir
  • Knight
  • Dame
  • Protector

Any Vaalor elf and full citizen of Ta'Vaalor has the opportunity to join the Crimson Legion, the official army of Ta'Vaalor. Members of the Legion have access to the following titles:

  • Crimson Legion Reservist (Postname)
  • Squire Legionnaire (Prename)
  • Legionnaire (Prename)
  • First Legionnaire (Prename)
  • High Legionnaire (Prename)

Only the prename title of Squire Legionnaire is available to new recruits; the postname title of Crimson Legion Reservist is available as well. The other versions of Legionnaire title might be granted via storylines.

CHE Officer Titles

Officers of the Co-operative Houses of Elanthia are granted pre-name titles that match their position. Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary, Event Planner, Bartender and Arbiter are examples of such titles.

Postname Titles

Profession Titles

Like prename titles, profession titles are also attained after reaching specific levels.

Adventurer's Guild Titles

Like profession titles, the titles awared through the Adventurer's Guild are postname titles. Unlike profession titles, Adventurer's Guild titles are earned based on the number of specific tasks completed or based on how many bounty points a character earns. Failures count against the total. For example, someone with 500 escorts completed, but 15 failed, will have to complete 15 more escorts successfully before attaining the Bodyguard title.

Platinum Titles

1) One Postname title will be granted to any character acquiring level 60.
2) One Prename title will be granted to any character acquiring level 100.
3) Titles need to be sensible, in genre, and not out of character. No asking for nobility or one that suggests a particular official authority. (I.e.; no Baron Bob the Ruler of Wehnimer's Landing, or Animagus John the Half-Blood Prince, etc.)
4) Please provide a few options with your submission, just in case your first choice does not get approved. This will help in processing your request as fast as possible, and alleviate the back and forth e-mails. And please only submit second, third, etc, choices that you really want, because if your first choice isn't approved, we'll go down the list in order. Most of all, we want you to be happy with what you've chosen.
The format for titles is as followed: (Prename) (Your Name) (Your Last Name, if you have one) the (Postname). The is a static part of the system, so you need to work with it in your Postname titles.

To Acquire Platinum Titles

When you've had time to think on what titles you would like for your characters, please send an e-mail to gs4-platinum@listserv.simutronics.com with the following information:

Usually available in game at (days/times):
You will not receive a response immediately that your e-mail has been received. You will only get a response if either we need more choices, or when your title has been approved / applied.
There is no current estimated time on when we'll be able to process the request--as I expect we'll have a huge influx off the bat. I'm hedging, however, to get them processed in a few days time if things go well.
If anyone has any questions, do let me know and I'll try to answer them.

Surnames

Surname Registry Locations

Surname offices may be found at:

Ta'Vaalor: Wyvern Keep, Lobby - a glass-paned door
Cysaegir: Copse - a low stone gate
Four Winds Isle: Honeysuckle Avenue - a green-shuttered cottage

How to register a surname

To claim a surname, ASK a clerk FOR (not about) CREATE. One must be at least level 20 to create a surname. If the system determines that the name requested is appropriate and available, that surname will be granted. Only names that have not been registered or reserved by someone else are available.

>>ask clerk for create agsdasf
The clerk says, "You'd like to create the last name Agsdasf for yourself?"
After checking the records, the clerk says, "Very well, we will create it for you. But first you must CONFIRM your choice to me before I make it official."

To confirm the surname, ask clerk to create <name> confirm.

Registering an existing surname will prevent others from registering it for themselves. Once a surname is registered, it cannot be claimed by others without permission. Registration lasts a year, and notification is sent when that time period is within a month of expiring in order to RENEW it. The cost is 10000 silvers to renew for a year.

In the future, the system will be able to RESERVE a surname. Reserving a surname will prevent it from being shared, either by the original registered person or by others to whom the name has been given to in the past. The name will, however, still be open to other characters on the same account as the original registered character.

To SHARE a name with others, be grouped and ask the clerk for SHARE MY NAME. The clerk will then give the current group members a chance to ask him to CHANGE their name to the original character's within 30 seconds.

To share a last name between characters on the same account, a level 20 plus character must first change its name to that and THEN register it. At that point, any character on the account may take that last name by asking to change name to that registered. This works for below 20 characters and does not involve additional accounts.

To take on a new surname, ask the clerk to CHANGE NAME to something new, although this will only work for taking on the name of a spouse, or on names that have just been shared by someone in your group. Ask the clerk to CHANGE NAME TO SPOUSE and if both characters are present, and the clerk will record the spouse's last name as yours.

Surnames can be changed every 7 days for premium members, or every 30 days for anyone with a standard subscription.

Elven cultural surnames

Members of the Elven Houses can included their House name as part of their surname. They must show their chosen surname first, then use the Profile and/or FLAG/SET commands. Example of such a name: Rondarr Myconhart Ardenai. Rondarr is evidently of the Ardenai culture or House.
