So, I see the titles for post ranks have been changed to more Geneforgey ones. Opinions?

Ephesos doesn't like it, which makes it okay in my book. Yet I'm hesitant, because if I like it too much, Stareye might change it again.

Its unbelievable, I like Geneforge, but even still, Blademaster is a lot cooler than Law. I was about to make a milestone at adventurer :( .

But...but.. I wanted to be an Adventurer! I was so happy with my title. :(

An Adventurer is me!

As expressed in the former thread, I'm irritated. The first change was fine, I suppose, but now it's just like they're trying to irk ET.

Besides, Spiderweb is more than just Geneforge, and it was not built on Geneforge.

Clearly, someone up there realizes that Geneforge is the superior Spiderweb game.

A change that big? Just for ET? Wow his ego must be swelling, Arancayter will never make the top of the kill list, even he cannot do that to ET.

Too bad the ranks are job descriptions rather than factions.

1200 - Tullegolite
1700 - Awakened
2500 - Taker

Well two years ago the titles were based on Exile, then Avernum, so I guess it's Geneforge's turn with GF 5 on the way. I was hoping for Nethergate.

Does this mean that next year for Avernum 6 we go to Empire titles?

Bleh. I haven't even really played Geneforge yet. What the deuce is a crafter?

As a Geneforge expert, I can safely say I have no idea what a crafter is... or an essence weaver for that matter. My guess is that Stareye hasn't played a single Spiderweb game since Blades of Exile.

Crafter: One who crafts

Essence Weaver: One who weaves essence

Beyond that, I can only guess. Crafter could be the guys who make all the magical items, or it could be abbreviated form of Lifecrafter. As for essence weaver, that's probably a fancy term for Shaper apprentice or something. Or the people who make Essence Infused Skin. I don't know, these are pretty weak.

Can I get a full list of the new titles, please?

These are just as clunky as the old ones, but at least they have a little more basis in the games. A lot of the old titles, while they fit with the Avernum world, were titles that were almost never used in the games.

Much of this stems from, I suspect, the fact that Jeff rarely puts forth a consistent and meaningful hierarchy.

Damn it. People are rewarded for having lower post counts now? All the higher ones bite. And hard.

Edit: I will get my words to mean the right thing.

You know stareye is messing about just to render all of our posts obsolete.

Well fine. This will never be obsolete.

Stareye is a Dunder-head.
