These Stupid Titles VI
« on: April 21, 2008, 01:38:20 AM »
Okay, I looked for it, searched for it, and couldn't find it, and seeing as how I just leveled up...

I think we've gone a little too long without one of these, seeing as the last one I could find was closed August '06, and I have fond memories of the previous threads.  Therefore I'm reinstating an old TWG tradition; complaining about level titles!

Failed Spell Test Subject(Frog)?! How unimaginative!  A five year old could come up with that!  I'm severely disappointed.  At least make me a mutant cyberbiotic frog or something cool like that.

you're not powerful enough to be a mutant cyberbiotic frog. The point is not creativity, but that you really are nothing more than just a failed test subject that happens to be a plain, regular, pathetic frog.

I love my title.  I'm disturbing! Woohoo!
If I had any clue, would I be here?

Titles are evil hegemonic constructions.

That being said, mine is cool.  8)

I don't know (and don't care to look up) what an Acelen is.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Ah, that puts my miserable existence into perspective.  Thank you, oh great ruler of monkeys.

It's probably derogatory.

Somehow, level 5 Warfare is "Master Ditch Digger", but level 6 is "Angry Ditch Digger".

I fail to see the improvement there...

You are getting tired of digging ditches, and will eventually snap and start filling them in with your victims.  :)
I wanted to write something profound here, but I couldn't think of anything.

Oh, wow, I'm a graverobber.  I feel all choked up over this one.  Don't worry, they're happy tears.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

Oh, but not for long. I mean, that's what happens. You find a level you like, and then get punished for finding some joy when you level up with a fresh new horror.

And how deceptive is being a Flea-Ridden Gutter-Crawler anyway?

*Edit*

And speaking of which - why can't girl students get different titles to boy students?

I mean, would it kill some one for me to *AT LEAST* be refered to as a "Flea-Ridden Gutter-Crawling WENCH"?

Mine's pretty accurate:  scribe.  Doesn't say for who, so I'd elect that I'm a scribe for my own brain.  I've got some very advanced form of split-physicality.  :)

I'm posting here because it's been so long that I've forgotten what my title is.  Whatever it is I'm sure it's cool.  Cool as in a) stupid, b) awesome, c) megatastic (mega + fantastic,) or d) vorpal.  Multiple choice allows me to change my mind.

I think the whole idea of titles is awesome and megatastic.

*Can* a title be vorpal?

I mean, I'm a 'Student of Deception' technically, so you'd figure my title would at *least* be slithy.

But NooOOOoooooOoooooo...

Nor is it gender specific. Or mentioning of my wench-like nature.

Just remember, when you complain about your title, an administrator is likely to change it.  And change is not always good.
