What are Scenes?


Scenes are a way for players to manipulate the world for other characters without having to be present in any way. You can place a scene in any location and other people can stumble upon it later and interact with it. Some examples would be things like posters, a description of an area or evidence for a crime scene. Scenes persist through blackouts (server restarts) and you can set them to last up to three days. Each person can have 50 at once so go nuts!
