Personally, from my experience in other genres, I think that IC communications that have been created in notecards or sent by IM etc. can be role play enhancing.

People who otherwise wouldn't meet, now have legitimate reasons for networking. It encouraged the inter-caste roleplay which all sims want, and even inspired occasions for inter-city interaction.
The cost is, a handful of people to make it happen with additional effort from them all. But I'll say all of the roleplay I was involved in was all enjoyable and strictly IC.

Tantus wrote:I would support doing away with them both and issuing NCs only for more important uses. And before anyone jumps up and says "wow! you really do hate slaves!". I don't. I'm just practical.
Tantus wrote:Alternatively, slaves should be given a template to fill in, then a physician can stamp it and a scribe can file it. Simple.
Tantus wrote:A city should have templates for most uses, and you can fill in a name, a date, seal it and it's done! In less time than it takes for someone to emote. I don't understand why it's seen like a lengthy chore when you can literally fill a document between emotes, if it's taking any longer then the city needs to review their process.
