An idea I liked of Bedlams from the Bboard;

People who are jailed or are in jail should get the pretitle of "Idiot" (or something more politically/morally correct: ie. Inmate, Soap Dropper, etc. laf) until reboot.

    • Yes - my initial titles were just to start the ball rolling. Keep in mind the second highest title should be a good one too - not implying the guy is a wimp. -- FantoM

      • Lets go with "let him choose but if he's got no prior choice (or his prior choice is nolonger available) then choose one at random". -- FantoM

Keep in mind that the We also need to think about what happens if a player is highest in more than one category.

  • A note (I can't think of any titles right away), they should be more like real titles so it can be used in the mud as if they were such (lord mr, general.. not those but such titles so its possible to say it) -- FreD

    • I can see how it would work; pretitle [title] - set pretitle; pretitle - list available pretitles and state current (its listed at who but its nice here too). -- FreD

    • I can't decide, this would work the best way if you consider the pretitles as beeing rumours and passed along the mud in a nice medieval fashion. But they can't be random on each login must be boot or something longer (player can log in and out until he gets the one he wants, very annoying -> which is sort of the same as if he got to choose)-- FreD

    • I'd say none of them in finger, it should be something you know when you played the game (look at boards, speak to players) -- FreD

%META:TOPICINFO{author="FantoM" date="1099465500" format="1.0" version="1.1"}% %META:TOPICPARENT{name="WebHome"}% ( Just a note : I thought we had something on this topic elsewhere on the Twiki, so if anyone can find it please link to it. )

The concept of Pre titles has come up again on the bboard.

I'd always presumed we'd use the pretitle as a means of showing a rank for a player but never got far in deciding what the rank reflected.

The end of the discussion was an interesting idea - that we have track player scores in a number of categories and one or two pretitles are associated with each. The player with the highest score (and maybe second highest score) in a category gets the pretitle.

So - we need to work out what we want to track and what the 'highest' and 'second highest' scores are.

Add these to the table below.

Category Pretitle for highest Pretitle for second highest
Player level BigToughGuy WannaBe
Highest Stormlord WetAndWild JustPlainWet

Keep in mind that the We also need to think about what happens if a player is highest in more than one category.

  • Do they get to choose?
  • Do we randomly choose one each login?
  • Do we add the rank details to 'finger' so that while only one pretitle is shown on 'who', at least all appear on 'finger'?
