Why do some people have things like 'beauty' under their avatar?
Q.Why do some people have things like ‘Beauty’ under their avatar? I’d like that too!
A. Every character, even a starting one, has a reputation. In the wiki biography entry of the character the moderators may have noted a few things that you are allowed to incorporate in your IC dealings with these courtiers. If relevant to every day posting it may have been incorporated in the courtiers title below his account name as well, such as Libertine or Womanizer to indicate a man of loose morals who has seduced innocent ladies in the past. You can simply assume that such as been mentioned to you by NPC's in passing, or that you caught a rumour to that effect.
Likewise it can be noted that your character is considered a beauty or a handsome lad by society. Without using this benefit your character may still be mildly pleasant to look at, or receive flattering compliments by an infatuated suitor, but this status will not be recognized as such by the ton.
You are allowed to formulate your reputation under your avatar yourself. Moderators will help with suggestions.
