There are various Message Boards in the world of Primal Darkness. Message Boards are intended as a means of communication, allowing messages to be stored publically for a long period of time, a useful tool in discussions regarding large, important topics. Any given board is headed with a list of its available commands:

CREATING AND MANIPULATING YOUR OWN POSTS
%^YELLOW%^----------------------------------------

%^YELLOW%^-
<post [title]> with the title or topic of your post in place of '[title]' will begin Input. Now you may type the message that you wish to appear when another player reads your post. To conclude the post, a "." (period) must be entered on a line by itself. Please note that you will be unable to do anything while in Input, as all of your commands (save "." on a line by itself) will be regarded as a part of the message.

%^YELLOW%^-
<edit [#]> allows you to make changes to a message that you have posted in the past. Replace '[#]' with the number of the post that you wish to edit. End the post by entering "." (period) on a line by itself.

%^YELLOW%^-
<answer [#]> is an easy method of replying to a specific post. Simply replace '[#]' with the number of the post that you wish to reply to. Note that the topic of the post will automatically look like this: "Re: [original topic]".

%^YELLOW%^-
<remove [#]> will remove a post from the board. Simply replace '[#]' with the number of the post.
