Title: Dementlieu titles example
Post by: wildflame on May 25, 2017, 01:15:29 PM
Hey It's Me, Jay Owen wrote this and I thought it would be useful for anyone who wants to know the nobility titles at a glance.
I added little, it's his.

Quote
Full name: Noob Brotown. Title: Vicomte de Nerds
How public addresses: Monsieur le Vicomte. (la for Madame)
How public addresses after first meeting (within the same conversation): Vicomte
How wife/kids address: Monsieur / Monsieur le Vicomte, Papa if they're close, and only in private.
How peers address in public: Nerds
How peers address in private: Noob

Dunno if that helps at all.
But there ya go.

Uhh, so people don't think less of Jay, I wrote the format and name examples and asked for the blanks to be filled in. Jay's not the loser who decided Noob Brotown was a great character name.

It would actually be Madame la Vicomtesse for the feminine form. Also, just to point out: Mademoiselle is the French equivalent of Miss. If you are married, then you are also called Madame.

Characters are still free to call nobles however they like, certainly. It's more about what is proper behavior. I imagine some hardened commoners from the Ouvrier couldn't care less about how they addressed a noble.

Don't you speak badly of Noob Brotown, First of his name, Purveyor of Dankness.
