Appointing is the process of assigning a title to a character in Suikoden III. Appointing a character with a certain title increases a character's particular skill rank, while other titles do not affect any skills. A character can increase a skill even if they have not learned it yet or could not otherwise learn it through regular gameplay. All titles are added to the character's skill-based title and will change what certain castle NPCs say to the player. Only playable characters (not support characters) can be appointed. For each title, only one character can hold that particular title at one time, and no character can have multiple titles at the same time.
The character that permits players to use this ability is a man named Jefferson. He starts with certain titles available for the player to use, but he can appoint new titles when he is given a new Medal Set.
The table below lists the titles, the skills each affects, and how that particular skill is affected.
|Captain||Counter Attack +1|
|General||Heavy Damage +1|
|Marquis||Treasure Hunt +1|
|Emperor||Accuracy +1, Damage +1|
|TopCmdr.||Swing +1, Counter-Attack +1|
|ShdwBss||Adrenaline Power +2|
- Appointing has only ever appeared in Suikoden III.
