Card name post-count positions
« on: April 30, 2015, 11:31:36 am »

Would it be possible to add more of these?  The only post-Hinterlands position is Governor, and both Hinterlands names are in the 5-star range.  There are quite a few card names that would be pretty neat to sneak into these - maybe start newbs out at Madman, and then later they can be Hermits.  Have Advisors and Journeymen and Messengers and Guides and Misers and Ratcatchers and Wandering Minstrels and Cultists and Hirelings, and maybe the top level could be Prince.

Sort of related fun fact: the median post count among all F.DS members is 2.

What about pre-Count positions?

They haven't been counted yet.

This is funny because the word "count" has two meanings.

I like having titles that just last for one post - you have ones for 666, 1337, etc.; numbers that are special in some way. 401, Poster Not Found.

So then, say uh in the 3000's you were a Cartographer, but you wanted 3333 to be So Many 3's. You change the title at 3333, then have the Cartographer title for 3334. So it's two new title entries for each new title, one just reinstating what was going on.

Yes that one. It looks like 401 would be Unauthorized Poster. It doesn't have the same resonance for me.

BUMP!

I thought this was a good idea; nothing ever happened, right? Now we have Adventures and could be Ratcatchers and Champions!

Also it bugs me that it still says "Goko username" even though Goko doesn't exist anymore.

I don't know if this is even possible, and it's very very minor, but it would be cool to let us choose our title between those already unlocked. I want to be a Young Witch, not a Moneylender.

Could we actually redo the entire list? Since the list was made before maybe half the current expansions were out, it's pretty dated. We also of course have a higher ceiling on post count having been around longer. I'm sure if we all worked together we could come up with more interesting post count titles, possibly influenced by the card rankings.

I was confused because I thought the post I made proposing this got a lot more replies, but apparently I made the same post 10 months ago as well. Shit, I've been here for like 18 months now. Time flies when you devote most of your free time to an esoteric non-collectible card game with a limited competitive audience but objectively awesome gameplay.
