The news is a system used for communicating information to others via a single article, also known as a post. The different types of news sections, or newsboards, are as follows:
- This section may be read and written in by everyone.
- May be read by everyone, but only the Pentad and some other Immortals may write in this section.
- Everyone may write in this section but it may only be read by the Pentad.
- Houses, cities, Orders, clans, the Council of Oakstone, and the Church news sections may only be written in and read by adventurers who are members of those organisations and the Pentad.
While the news may be read from any area, even during sleep, one must be in a newsroom to write a new post. Writing to all newsboards available to a person is free of charge except for the public one which carries a fee of 5000 gold sovereigns.
