Here's the problem with "current system works -- do nothing." I know the Founder Last name reward might not seem like much: Last Name Get your last name early! Experience in battle leads to Notoriety, but unlike ordinary adventurers, Immortal Adventurers will have the right to select and display both a first and last name right from the get-go! But, this is an Immortal Founder pledge reward, which means it effects the VAST MAJORITY of Founder and Royal Founders and A LOT of the largest backers. If you start saying some pledge rewards matter, and some do not, who decides which ones don't matter? If you allow this one to slide, are you opening up for other pledge rewards (some that people have strongly defended, like lot claiming order, for example) to be changed to suit the whims of the masses? It might be easy to say "I don't care about this." But then what happens when someone doesn't care about a pledge reward/ Portalarium promise that you find vital? I can only think of three solutions (please, someone add any others you can think of) that allow for last named to be selected and displayed later without a bunch of people running around with the same name. Make first names unique to one character Pro: No confusion in naming, combined with a quest for a last name it allows players to keep a single name by skipping the quest (Cher and Madonna would approve) Con: Very restrictive on naming, effects players that currently have the same first name Require a Last Name Entered at Character Creation Visible for all Players Above a Certain Level/Once completing the tutorial scene Pro: Support's Lord British's desire for characters to be united/known by a last name on a single account, supports current naming methods with first/last name combination being unique or would allow for family name to be unique to a single account, allows more naming options for players Con: Forces players who would not like a visible last name to select one and wear it Require a Last Name Entered at Character Creation for all Players Visible when inspected but can be toggled off overhead Pro: Allows for current naming method and a single last name for all characters on an account, allows for characters to be KNOWN by a single name but still allows others to access family name Con: More work coding to create a toggle last name on/off, requires all characters to select a last name, requires players to inspect a character to know "for sure" who they are dealing with Personally, I think the third option is the most flexible, but I'd love to hear other ideas about how to implement this pledge reward.
