|OOG Information: The Caldaria IG boards are a representation of a “Tavern Wall”, located in Badril's Rest. It is assumed that any post in this forum represents a written announcement of some kind, physically posted on the tavern wall, or public announcements made multiple times by a Herald or messanger.
It is assumed that any character without Read/Write who wishes to post may do so, having hired a scribe for a minimal fee to write the post, and that a character without Read/Write reading the boards can find someone to read it for them.
In order for this to work, and for the players to get the maximum enjoyment from the concept, we ask for the cooperation of all players involved. Here are some guidelines that players should adhere to when posting:
Only post if your character could reasonably do so IG. That is, if your character is trapped on another plane of existence, it is unlikely that he/she would have the means to post on the Tavern Wall.
If your character is in Caldaria, specifically Lindall or its vicinity, it is likely that you pass by the Tavern frequently. In such a case, it is certainly permissible to post to the Tavern Wall on a regular basis.
If you are spending all your time in another chapter, it’s conceivable, if unreliable, to attempt to send a message through the flux via courier, for example: “I’m coming to town for Forum next month, see everyone there”. But if your character is spending his/her time between events in another chapter, it is very unlikely that you would be able to respond to all of the posts currently on the board with all your comments, especially regularly.
It is conceivable that your character could hear rumors that someone posted a message addressed to you on the Tavern Wall, even if you are not present in the chapter. Therefore it is conceivable that you could respond to it. But again, it is very unlikely that you would be able to respond to every post currently on the board with all your comments.
Be aware that the Tavern Wall is public and viewable to all—if you post something treasonous, you are likely to face consequences.
Monsters and other villains are not in the habit of posting on the Tavern Wall (they usually have better things to do), so don’t expect any of them to reply if you post a taunt. Since the Tavern Wall is very public, they may very well find out what is posted, however, and act accordingly.
In general, use your common sense with regards to the IG boards. Many players like the concept of a Tavern Wall and we haven’t had any problems with abuse in the past. Let’s keep it that way and make it good for everyone.
