I notice I never see any high-level characters with accents in their names, i.e., alt +133 in a name like Mon or whatever. Does a GM come along and change these at some point or is it only a coincidence that I've only seen it on low-levels? Only asking because I don't want one of my names on my placeholders changed to some smartass alternate once I start leveling it.

If you get reported, you'll have to pick a new name for your character.

Well, my characters with accents aren't very high level. But I contacted a GM a few days ago on one of them, Jn. The GM made no comment about it at all. Same goes for my other accented character, Clie. Maybe because the accents make sense in the names? I don't know for certain.

Meh, I'll have to come up with something else from the get-go then. Every server already has a mage or warlock named Richard: I was just going to slap an accent aigu over the 'i' or something.

I don't know about a GM, but I do know that it's incredibly tacky and I have an instant dislike of anyone with accented names <_<

All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day.

I assume you mean an inappropriately-accented name. Still, I'll try not to slit my wrists or lose sleep over it.
