Would it be cool if your character could earn titles from NPC and Guild achievements that others can see?
Getting a title from a king/ chief NPC etc.
Or getting a title from Guild leaders
Examples:


______ the Brave, ________ the Great Conjurer, _______ Khajiit bane ;]

Since there is going to be a first/last name system I can already see people doing things like King <Name>

Pretty sure there will be rules for naming where your first name can't be interpreted as a title.

I'd prefer a more LOTRO system of titles; having to earn them, like achievements.

I agree on having to earn them, but if you tie them into an achievement system. I hope they at least make the more uncommon titles hard to get though. As it would be kinda imersion breaking to have 2 million people running around with the title of Emperor/Empress for example. (Bad example I know, but you get the point.) Some titles should be limited and hard to get. In the given example, the ideal solution would be for only one person having the title at any give point. But its more likely that if such a title exists, it would be one person per pvp campaign.

A better example would be the title off Thane (at least for us Ebonpact players). It shouldn't be as easy as just do x quests and congratulations Thane. Or a title like general, or the suitable equivelant for the various races/factions. Which also shouldn't be handed out in droves to just anyone.

Anywho, end rant. Before I write a book on the subject.

I concur. Acheivement-based titles, but harder to earn than in LotRO.

If they do Guild rankings like they did in Morrowind, for example, I wouldn't mind being able to display your guild ranking as your title. Although I do wonder how many Co-Archmages would be running around. I'm sure there's a limit as to how far up you could go.

Other than that, we know achievements are in the game. It would make sense if they had titles tied to achievements.

I like this idea! But it would only make sense if you couldn't become the guild leader like you can in all the previous TES games.

I'm still skeptical if you actually achieve the "emperor" rank, if it'll actually give you a permanent title. I'd assume something would be given permanently, but I think multiple Emperor's would be comical at least. I really don't want to see another thousand "Champion of the Frozen Wastes" title. The Frozen wastes got a lot of champions. It's like a football team allowing everyone in the state to join, it just doesn't make sense!

Titles should be VERY hard to get, that way when you see someone with a cool title, it actually means something

Well you can't really stop everyone from having the best title (besides emperor) because over time people will invest enough time in order to get it. Then it will be common regardless of how hard it is to get. Now if you make it skill based and make it nearly impossible, I guess that is one way of getting a true "rare" title.
