|One person sent me a response to my email which suggested posting banter here.|
The comment was about the word 'banter'
'Banter' is in-game discussion or even arguing, in the spirit of fun, generally from a role-playing perspective, from race to race. Banter can be a lot of fun, and can make a game more enjoyable.
'Flaming' is attacking the player, not the race, and generally means that someone is upset. Flaming is bad. Flaming can quickly destroy a game.
With respect to the messages that I have seen so far, they are from the Goths and the Pilgrims, not the 'players' and are aimed at the races, not the other players. They are intended in the spirit of fun as far as I could tell.
So I encourage you all to keep up the playful messages!
