In-game note system

Post by Tangela » Sat Jul 01, 2017 11:25 am

Hi all,

I have an idea, but I'm not sure whether it would work or is something other people would get much use out of.

Basically, I'm picturing a notes system in game for when you want to store something your character says to refer back to later. This wouldn't be logs or big events but short things your character says or does ic that give info on their background, morality, etc. The way I see it working is you'd say something in game, then type the note command, and it would copy the last thing your character said to their notes file, viewable again at any time with the notes command or something similar. Something kind of like a modified version of the ritual command I think, though not meant to store as many actions at a time.

It would be especially useful for characters who have been playing a long time or who take a long absence and want to be able to have a jot to remind them of something they said 3 years ago or keep quick updates on how their character's morality or beliefs have changed over time.

What do you all think? Is this doable? Is this something you all would want done?

This comes up a lot, so I went ahead and added it. Just use the NOTE command in-game for instructions.

Note there's one minor issue where if you had a duplicate of the exact same note, and you enter the index value to delete the latter of the two duplicates, it'll delete the first one instead. I figure that's not really a huge issue though.

Thank you so much for this addition. :) Now that I know of its existence I'll make lots and lots of use of it!
