    Anything that breeds conflict can be used as an RP tool. I can see Saeva's point of view, but I don't agree with it.

    Do you think it'd be an interesting conflict, though?

    What if someone started titling themselves the same exact things as a full member of your House wears? What about if they claim a Vastarian title? This would be like me wearing "Neraeos' Tempest". Yes, I was a Nereian, but I never got Tempest, and further I'm no longer in the Order. It's not interesting. It's just silly.

    Further, there's no way to really do anything within the conflict. The title/surname exists on that person, or it does not. You cannot actually force any kind of change. It's a "haha I'm still this even though you don't want me to be!" flag in the face. If any of them would actually interact with Mhaldorians, it could be interesting, but then they'd (rightfully) be shunned from their own orgs (since these are Targossians/Eleusians).

    Mhaldorian families aren't about bloodline. They're about a principled set of beliefs, and all of that tie very very directly into Mhaldor and Evil. To wear one is to say you not only agree with these beliefs, but also find yourself to hold true to Evil. There's a reason why not every single Mhaldorian is one, and why Saeva (and others who do not use the forums as much) are pissed. There's nothing interesting because all they do is wear it and say "nah naaaah", and there's nothing the family members can do save grief them by killing them over and over.

    I don't have any personal stake in this by the way, having a non-Mhaldorian surname, so this is speaking purely from a sideline view. It just feels silly.

    Edit: Above is for the post above Daeir's, obviously.

    It opens avenues for RP, character interaction. If someone who wasn't entitled to wear a Vanguard title, or a Vastarian title were to do so, action would be taken to try to force that character to stop wearing it. What form of action that would be, I can't say. It would be different were it Vanguard to Vastar, to any other organisation. As to whether you wearing the title of Neraeos Tempest is silly or not, that would depend on your intent in bearing the title. Perhaps as a means of deception, as a jibe at those who are Neraean, or perhaps just as a joke. It could be interesting, it could be silly.

    Your family doesn't change, even if you move. I still have the same surname as my parents, we live in different countries, have different views on many things. Doesn't mean I need to change my surname.

    So the Lichlord / Aristata family names originated in Mhaldor, and were pureblood evil. That was IG centuries ago, the bloodline has been diluted somewhat. It happens. Demanding some programmed mechanic to strip people's surnames because they don't follow the original intent of the family name doesn't really seem to me to be the best way of going about things.

    Seems to me that they're more asking for a way to say 'Sure they WEAR the title, but we (the people who matter) don't formally acknowledge them' in a mechanical matter. 'cause right now if you ask someone why they have the last name Ariwhatever it is, they say 'I'm the <son|daughter> of <Mhaldorian>' - you check bloodline and they sure are. But if this mechanic were added, the conversation would be slightly different in that checking bloodline would show the family had disowned said person. Sure this could be done via public posts and the like, but nobody's going to search through the almost 20,000 public posts to see family drama going down.

    In an ideal world, there'd be some real way to pressure someone for having a family title that goes against the core beliefs of said family - I could snag a surname with some influence behind it and drag it through the mud and nothing you can do will stop me, though.

    To look at it from a different perspective, if I join Vastar's Order and kill Arcadians to make myself a feathered cap, they'll boot me and strip me of my title. If I re-title it, then I'll get mechanical punishments to my character in the form of death/TDF/etc. If I join the Savants and mail @Daeir the contents of the House shop, I'll probably face some real mechanical downsides there as well (loss of House/city for starters) - it doesn't seem too unreasonable that an organization be able to mechanically sanction someone, or forcibly remove association with them.

    By extension, I don't think it's too far-fetched to have your family be able to strip your right to wear the name. Not mechanically remove your title, because that would be stupid, but SOME way to say 'hey we don't condone this person'. Maybe a flag that shows up in HONORS, maybe something in bloodline. Families have always been a core part of Achaean RP, with being invited into someone's family (at least with many names) as a mark of respect.

    Whatever happens with this, though, I'd consider someone wearing a family name the rest of the family disagreed with to be an open pk hat - it's a sucky way to enforce change, maybe, but probably the only tool you're going to have. And it's a tidy conflict too, with clearly defined goals - the person wearing the name either manages to beat you back and earn the right to the title by might, or loses and capitulates/finds some compromise with you. Sure it sucks to lose, but someone has to when it comes to conflict.

    Being cast out from a family doesn't mean that you should have to change your surname. Wear it with pride as a standing point to opposing the other members of said family. Write a post if you want to disinherit someone, even go so far as to offer a bounty for their head for however long they wear it, but don't go to calling people out on the forums as being bad at RP just because theirs differs from yours. The level of personal attack at certain people about it is not on just because they don't agree with your enforcement of the RP.

    If I was at one point a member of a family that I end up "betraying their cause" because I find another faction more appealing/towards my characters development I would still wear the family title, if they demanded I remove it I would refuse as a form of rebellion to their control, and to forge a new legacy for the family name, regardless of what they wanted.

    If it was not in my character to be headstrong/not cowed, then I would change the title as a form of escape. Both sides of the argument generate RP, but to say one side is wrong and be a bitch towards someone on forums because you don't like it is not the way to go.

    But sure, I change class so just focus on that, what do I know.

    tl/dr - both sides generate RP, both have valid RP directions but should not be enforced by admin or "family" powers. My comment was based on the bitchiness of people in this thread about it.

    So, this is my personal opinion and it gets a little harsh. Sorry.

    @Saeva and the rest of the Mhaldorian Aristata are in their rights to Rp being pissy and annoyed that someone not Mhaldorian is wearing the name they've chosen to glorify. However, Gaia, Artemis, Eleusis, Targossas, Aurora, Deucalion, the rest of the world are within their own rights to not give a shit about what Saeva thinks. Ah the beauty of playing individual characters with their own opinions on certain topics.

    At the moment Aristata, and most other family cults don't really mean anything outside of Mhaldor. Outside of Mhaldor, they are just another combination of letters that assumes the form of a surname.

    Maybe instead of making public posts praising those who bare the surname and have defected it (illustrating a lack of being able to keep your own house in order. I know it was a sarcastic post but it doesn't add anything to the name. It's just a girl stomping her foot because of some perceived slight.) the Mhaldorian families should start making public posts praising those members who are still in the city and actively furthering the goals of Evil. Make a name of your family as Evil sons-of-bitches actually out in the public eye and you'll hopefully find that people outside the of Mhaldor will start giving those last names weight.

    -----------------------------

    @Ruth made a point about uh, your named denizens. Each city has a set of denizens that hold notable surnames associated with prominent families in that city at the time of the trial revamps. But, remember these names have been about centuries beforehand and yes, there would even be people who bore these to new cities. They have been able to wear these without issue in their new cities. It's really only recently the cults have started trying to reel these in.

    Again, I think the solution here is to make the names mean something outside of Mhaldor.

    -------------------------------

    My last name is quite well-known to the English, especally on an Australian. When I was in London I did get a lot of jokes about it including a bartender who pretended like he wasn't going to serve me because of it. A joke is fair enough, but if my surname/heritage completely and utterly disqualified me from getting a drink or entering England that would be a pretty shitty thing.

    Replace England with any Achaean organisation and read how you will.

    To the first bolded:
    Right, it means nothing to those people? Then let go of something that definitely means something to people inside of Mhaldor (or wherever!) where it stems from and does have meaning.

    And to the second bolded:
    But because there's no mechanical way of dealing with this, instead of going around PKing people, this is how I opted to point out the absurdity of it.  It doesn't have anything to do with anyone being able to keep a house in order. It's not -my- family to run and I'm not the only one who is irritated at the lack of regard for what the families are/stand for - as clearly demonstrated by so many!

    Vanguard was an interesting comparison to bring up because it's also the CR6 rank in Targossas. It makes me lean more toward using Nemesian when referring to members of the House simply to make that distinction, but I guess at this stage, both are equally valid titles to be used in Ashtan or Targossas if appropriate.

    Kshetrayya is a surname that Kyrra's mother Mulciber uses and it's something that's pretty exclusive to that person. While I inherently have every right to use it if I want, Kyrra was disowned over 300 years ago by Mulciber and it just seems.. strange to want to acknowledge a connection that hasn't been there in a really long time.

    I really understand where Saeva and Daeir are coming from, but I also see where everyone else is coming from. In general, family trees are pretty awesome and I like to think it's cool that I have access to prominent family names such as Winterhart and Mercadia through my character's parents but since I have no real interaction with those family members (or am even a member of the family clans), it would be strange to use them. And even though I am proud as hell to have Jhui for a father, I'd feel weird using Ta'sa as well.

    Perhaps families like Wintermourne and Aristata, Lichlord and Lucoster, and a few of the others are more seen like legacies because of their history in Achaea. It's why people tend to place more importance on the surname as a title and it's something that needs to be earned rather than expected. To some, the history of these families is incredibly important and it's something that members of those families want to preserve rather than dilute, and there's really nothing wrong with that at all. I can understand that. I can also understand though, that just because you move to another city or faction, your past and who you are up until that point isn't magically erased.

    I love the concept of legacies, it's something that people can aspire to be a part of and it's another angle to give depth to a character. There's just no way to distinguish such families from every other, so it really stems down to a personal choice of a character whether they want to acknowledge their history or not. Not everyone likes that, which is fine, but I love seeing posts from Saeva having digs at other Aristata family members in cities like Eleusis and Targossas. It's spreading RP opportunities, and shouldn't that be considered a good thing?

    @Saeva : I meant it doesn't mean anything to the people surrounding them. It Doesn't mean anything to Eleusis, doesn't mean anything to Targossas etc. The only place the name means 'Elite Evil Servants' is in Mhaldor. There's no pressure for the people holding that surname to change because the people and organisations they are part of don't see any negative meaning in it.

    Obviously the surname means something to the bearers of the name. It's just not the same meaning you see in it.

    So, a few thoughts:

    First, I think it'd be awesome if surnames were a special kind of title that could only be earned either by being on a special clan or some such OR by being part of the creator's bloodline as wife/husband/daughter/son/etc. 

    Going along with this, it'd be nice if family heads could then mark who they consider black sheeps, and to have such a status be publicly visible, purely as an rp tool to satisfy people with concerns like those of Saeva and etc.

    What I don't agree with, though, is with restricting people's surnames or making it impossible for people to wear them just because they leave the city in which those names originated. Sure, you all might not consider it 'meaningful' conflict, or even meaningful at all, but to be frank, its not only your own enjoyment that matters. If people were bloodlined or whatever into the family, they have as much right to it, and it might be meaningful for them, in some manner or another, to keep it.

    Besides, lets be honest. If they are not doing something interesting with the name, and someone else happen to mention, say, the Aristatas, you can be sure people are first going to think of Mhaldor before wherever else.

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...

    A couple of thoughts:

    - Regarding an easily-accessible record of those who have the "right" to wear a name (someone mentioned skimming through thousands of news posts to find disinheritances): could that not be done with a clan? CLANHELP ARISTATA (for example), and anyone not listed on there doesn't have the right to wear the name (in the opinion of the patriarch/matriarch).  It's not ideal, but has the advantage of using a system which is already in place.

    - On the idea that Aristatas moving to Targossas (for example) should be pressured into losing their surname, as a way of cutting ties: there is precedent to this.  When Targossas was first formed, there were a lot of people who wanted to continue with their Shallam House titles - the point was made (over a long period of time) that Targossas is a new start, and they shouldn't be clinging onto the past.  I don't think there's anyone who still has their old title any longer.

    I don't have a stake in this either way.  My initial reaction when reading the thread (once I got past the first half a dozen posts, which had the audacity of addressing the original idea) was "so some people outside of Mhaldor have 'Aristata' as a surname, who cares?" - but reading further, it's clear that there's a lot of history with some of the older family names, so I can see the point.  That said, regarding the point about Aristata blood members being infused with some portion of Sartan's essence: that wouldn't change just because someone is cast out from the family (if this is something which is passed down through blood - and the crux of the argument here seems to be that it is).


    On the original topic: I quite like that bloodlining is a one-time, irreversible thing.  If it's for the purpose of tidying up a bloodline, well, a messy one is the price of being so... prolific with your recreation.  If it's for actual disavowing of a still-active player, you'll probably have the opportunity to make it clear to those who care (the ones who would bother to BLOODLINE SHOW in the first place) that you disapprove of your progeny's actions through RP.  If it's an inactive player, it doesn't really matter (again: if someone brings it up, you can tell the story).

    really don't like the idea of being able to "reavow".  It cheapens the bloodlining aspect entirely if you can on-again, off-again it.  Whatever the price, it'll be prohibitively high (I remember on a previous character when the 10K gold for divorce was a fair amount) for some characters, or trivially low (public news posts).

    Too slow to edit the above, but it looks like Aristata have the clan already, to a fairly substantial degree (and also fulfil my other wish of having a useful clan description, that tells me just enough about the history of the name to sate my initial interest).

    Siduri is Rhiwin-Lucoster. Recognized, non disowned, but Targossian. She has changed her surname to found a splinter family, the Azagnannan Brood, which is 90% serpent, and divided among Targossas and Cyrene for now. She'd probably have beef too if one of her kids ended up wearing the name in Mhaldor or Ashtan, but thats a matter of selecting your kids.

    I'm just glad I am no longer married, so no one can sucker me into bloodlining people I would find useless.

    Except the Black family wasn't tied to Voldemort. He was just Voldemort.

    It would be the same as (GoT Spoiler):

    He would just get killed for it, it wouldn't offer him any perks and it would have very real consequences. He's disowned.

    Just to add, because there seems to some confusion, the original idea was never to undo a bloodlining, that's permanent and it should be.

    It's to -flag- that person as disowned. Their bloodline is still the same and will show their ancestors etc etc. (Just with a flag to indicate their disownment )

    The only change is that they will not show up in whoever disowned them's bloodline. (Unless you view bloodline full).

    Regarding families in general, it seems like half the people are arguing we shouldn't need mechanical support for this and should rp it out with what we have and the other half are arguing that we should stop caring about it because it's just a title and not important (aka it doesn't exist mechanically). :confounded:

    I feel about this topic the same things I feel about knights from Houses/Guilds/Cities that no longer exist wearing 'Sir' or 'Lady.'

    Is it a little dumb? Yes. Is it a crime? Nope. Some people will get worked up about, because they're not 'real' knights (or Aristatas, Lichlords, whatever else), but in the end, the onus is on the people who want to elevate that title (let's be honest, surnames are just a title in Achaea, except a suffix instead of a prefix) to make it worth doing things their way. If Aristatas in Targossas don't give a crap about what Mhaldorian Aristatas' thoughts, it's probably better to ask yourself 'why?' than to get pissy about it on the forums.

    Personally, I think Achaean families are convoluted and kind of pointless, because except for in the case of some very specific people, they're just coloring, not flavour.

    I like this idea because it gives you something to do with your bloodline that isn't fire-and-forget. Once you sign that paper, you're bound forever, and, truth be told, if you want families to start meaning something, you should give people more options for controlling the way they present their bloodline to the world. People are allowed to make mistakes, and cutting someone out of your bloodline should be a meaningful thing. I wouldn't be opposed to nixing the whole bloodline thing in favour of an honours line, frankly- He has been disinherited by his blood parents, or something similar. Something to show -everyone- that your people are upset with you.

    As long as you can't literally force a person to change a title, there's no control at all over surnames, and so, it'll continue to be meaningless unless the majority of a family provides an attractive, rewarding incentive for buying into their vision of said family.

    Just to clarify...
     
    Mhaldorian families do gain certain privileges within the city as a whole, including family events, the right to have various displays in the city, etc. There is a fairly rigid set of rules and privileges gained via the families, and instructions on how to become both minor and major houses. This system was introduced well before I joined Mhaldor, and obviously with Sartan's approval and oversight as it's become an official part of the city and its culture.

    Not quite "garden-stamped", but not really far off, either.
