Names and Titles
Surname - The surname command is /surname and then the name you wish to be called, in recent years this has been more relaxed from the olden times with the roleplaying filter. You MUST BE level 20 in order to use this command. You can play with the naming to get the exact one you want, however be warned that anything inappropriate can and will be deleted by GM's on their disgression. If you no longer wish to have a surname, type /surname and DO NOT type anything after that. You will then have a blank surname spot. You can change your surname once every 7 days.
Special note: As a practical joke if someone asks how to change their surname, you can tell them /surname remove. The unattentive victim will then enter the code and be known for the week's surname cycle as "Remove."
"Unique" Non-GM Event Surnames - Petition a GM for a surname change request for the specific symbol you want, however be warned it is up to the GM so don't expect a "!" symbol and so forth on every whim. The writer has only seen the omega symbol used with one player's multiple characters, so it is possible but makes no claims that your specific symbol will be granted all the time. However, the worst you can do is try for your heart's desire.
Game Master Titles The first truly unique titles in the game are known as GM titles that are bestowed upon players originally during GM events that take up your /surname slot. If you use the /surname command, it will wipe out this title. Typically a GM will ask you for the surname you wish to retain PLUS the title or just the title. If you want a GM title, the first are from GM events that are denoted through global emotes by Guides. Upon completion of the event, a single person will be granted a GM title that coincides with the event. These events can be PvP bouts, roleplaying, or various other event. You will not have an option to the sort of title you get, it is dependant soley on the event itself. Note, that GMs will no longer help you to change your GM title's with a surname. So for example if you wanted to be called Ownaged Keglover the Mighty and change your name to Ownaged Mcpwndjoo the Mighty will not be changed. The only way to change this is to /surname and you will lose your GM title. This policy may change from the writing of this wiki stub, so just "try" a few times for different GM's to change your surname with your title intact. When you petition give the wished surname with your title. However, as a player maintain low expectations for such a change.
Player Optional Game Master Titles - These are often only distributed by Zatozia (or other) Community Managers on the Everquest forums. These are from Board Challenges on the Everquest message boards. Prefix Titles These are titles that are togglable in game that appears prior to the character's "given" name. They can be acquired in multiple different ways regardless of level. Certain restrictions do apply for certain ones. Some are quested, some are gained through the alternative AA system, and some are limited to certain time frames to complete a quest or task and then no longer available.
Suffix Titles - Just like Prefix Titles, these too are available in a plethora of ways regardless of character level.
