Sometimes a character finds himself doing something that should logically affect the room he is in, be it a battle with another character, an experiment gone awry or carving the name of his love into the trunk of a tree.

What if these things could actually remain in the game world for a time?

Having players edit room descs would be quite impractical, but would it be feasible to allow players to create little signs or plaques that denotes a change was made?

Bob creates a plaque with the desc. "Looking more closely at the wall of this building reveals scorch marks and blood spatter. Something must have gone down here."

Karl could then "look plaque/sign/edit(whatever you call it)" and see the message (+date if possible.)

They could be semi-permanent, lasting until next reboot or a given amount of days(2 weeks?). Ideally, others could "amend plaque" if they had something to add.

I think something along these lines is in the works, but could be awhile off. If the higher-ups are okay with it, I'd be willing to make temporary changes like this (or take requests, so long as they're realistic).

I'd love to see something like this as well! But perhaps taken even a step further, to be room graffiti or even better yet an immovable object in the room that could be looked at (so a long and a short description).

I think it would be a quick fix to giving players some small ability to drive their own plots.

And then have it be wipeable at reboot so as to not muck up the world.
