3.16 Postal System
Each of the cities in Aetolia has a post office, often located near the bank. You can always PATH TRACK POST within a city to find it. While in a post office, the following things can be done: REQUEST LETTER: This will request a letter from the postal staff. The letters are magical, being able to not only be written on, but being able to hold things improbably large in them. The letters cost 100 gold each, and will decay within a handful of Aetolian weeks. If you want to include items, just PUT <item> IN LETTER before you mail it. You must do this in a postal office. WRITE LETTER: Compose a letter. A letter can hold a maximum of about 100 lines. MAIL LETTER TO <whomever>: Address and mail a letter to whomever it is for. You must do this in a postal office. PRESERVE LETTER: Sometimes, you may receive a letter you wish to keep permanently, out of sentiment, or perhaps as proof of some nefarious plot. Doing this will cost 2000 gold. You must do this in a postal office. CHAR LETTER: Provided you have a source of fire with you, such as a tinderbox, you can partially char a non-preserved letter, which will cause bits and pieces of it to become unreadable. This can be done multiple times. DIP LETTER: If you are within a watery location, you can dip your letter into the water. This will cause the ink to run and become somewhat unreadable. This can be done multiple times. SEAL LETTER: With wax, a tinderbox and a candle, you can imprint your seal on a letter. The seal is broken once it is opened.
