Honorifics in Numenera

So, last night a small party left Qi in search of an Artifact to bring back for study by the Order of Truth.

This was going well, when we got on a side conversation about honorifics.

For those of you who may have missed a few episodes. I am oft prone to calling people "Dude", "Man" and "Fuckstick". This odd bit of english artistry caused a guffaw or two and caused us to ask, "Just what do you call your 'betters' in the Ninth World"?

After a bit of reflection we settled on "Dude".

You see, if a few things will survive from the 21st century or before it will be two things.

1) The story of Jack and the beanstalk.
2) The term "Dude".

So when next you run into an Aeon Priest who may hold the secrets you need to unlock your newest bit of Numenera, don't forget to call him "Dude".
