Keeping a journal

Post by keyboardbandit » 22 Sep 2009, 00:12

Its well known that the best way to play this game is to keep a journal for yourself to keep track of spells and quests, but why is there no in game journal?

I'm thinking a small in-game app could add a lot in the way of helping players keep information straight.

How I picture it; there would be a "Journal" tab next to the other buttons at the top right (status, settings, ect...). When opened it would function just like any notepad-esq text editor for players to keep track of their quests and personal objectives.

I was also thinking that there could be a tab within the Journal that would separate the spell portion of the journal from the rest. The spell portion could be formatted to include a space for the name, invocation, requirements, and level.

This would be a small add to the game, but I feel it would do a lot of good in the way of ambiance (a journal in a rpg? go figure!), self accomplishment (no computer added quest lines, all written by the player), and ease of use.

I think it would be a great idea and players should be aloud to automatically be able to post it to the forums of blogger that would be great for parties and clans. :mrgreen:
