A way to send messages to players offline

I am a captain of a small crew where none of my members are ever on at the same time as me, which makes it very hard to talk to them about promotions, crew issues and the like. Also there are many times when I need to speak to a hearty about something but I can never catch them online. If puzzle pirates were to add like a message board or something, then I think it would be a good improvement to the game.

Re: A way to send messages to players offline


  • Use something from: https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/List_of_message_furniture
  • Or post in your Crew Issues
  • Or leave something in your Crew Private Statement
  • Or use the news page on any building
  • Or leave presents/boxes with inscribed messages at any building
  • Or use the officer bulletin board (semi-restricted)

You can also use discord (http://discord.com/) which you can also install as an app on your phone.

Re: A way to send messages to players offline

Please read the announcement thread for the rules of the Game Design forum.

There are many resources which may be helpful in finding existing discussions to continue:
  • The Anti-list of ideas disapproved by the Game Developers. Note that they're not totally ruled out but the Game Developers often had some fairly strong objections and any further discussion on such ideas should start by addressing these objections. Note that philosophical objections are pretty firm e.g. no personal firearms in Puzzle Pirates. By definition it means there is an existing discussion on the idea.
  • The List of ideas the Game Developers didn't react adversely to. As the game gets updated, some of the ideas may become obsolete or unnecessary. By definition it means there is existing discussion on the idea.
  • The thread Hermes started contains links to suggestion threads for furniture, clothing, pets, trinkets and trophies.
  • Commonly discussed ideas is a fairly comprehensive listing of previously proposed ideas. In general the Game Developers have not expressed approval nor disapproval of these ideas.
  • Search (in Game Design) to see if your idea has come up before. You may prefer to use Google or some other search engine that you're more comfortable with. You can ask for help with searching in this thread:
    http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=6605
    Generally you may expect a response within 24 hours, though questions with hard to find answers may take slightly longer.
If there's an existing discussion thread to reply to and it's older than a few months, be sure to call attention to the age of the thread. Including the word "bump" when adding new material will do.


A piratey email system hasn't been high priority as a feature for the Developers for quite some time, see comments by:
