Explorer of Darkness
Avenger of the Enchantress
Slayer of Exodus
Quester of the Avatar
Warrior of Destiny
Fulfiller of the False Prophecy
Destroyer of the Fellowship
Survivor of Pagan

These are very much tied to OSI's quest line/lore/events, something along these lines would be cool but with excelsior feel 8)

I like the idea a lot, I'm just having trouble coming up with excelsior-esque titles that won't be conflicting with stuff that could be awarded elsewhere. For example, seasonal quests are a big part of the shard for most players. But I wouldn't want to give a vet reward title that is specific to a seasonal quest (IE: "Avenger of Cupid" or somesuch nonsense) since that title would be better served being given as an achievement for doing the quest itself. OSI has the luxury of all the ultima online lore to pull from. The lore has nothing to do with the actual game content, really, so they can draw endlessly from the lore without conflicting with things they will want to do content-wise.

Dang titles being such a pain :worried:

Elysium and Touria might bring some ideas (storylines like +V's Bael'Nefario), but that would mean postponing the titles :?

i still think virtue based titles could be a simple solution, like "follower of compassion/honor/and such; UO related (even though we don't have the OSI lore) and still easy to relate to as they are, well, virtues :)

I like the virtue titles as well but I think they might get a veto by +C, he already has some stuff planned for various types of achievements and I suspect virtues might be one of those

That would be something for an achievement, not a veteran reward. I'm sure +C will post a suggestions thread once he's working on adding additional achievement rewards.

Drawing a blank on earlier ones, however i do love "Legendary Banksitter". Or something along those lines. As an extra choice At a certain tier. So you have the option of the normal title at that tier OR The Silly one like Legendary Banksitter. Hehe or could have a few silly ones that run along side the actual ones. Like "Branch Manager" for an earlier choice in the tier.

I can probably work in some silly ones along with some more "serious" ones. Keep the suggestions coming, y'all!
