I’m actually surprised I haven’t seen more talk about a mailing system. Since there is currently not company storage, we can’t send/trade items with offline players. Here’s 2 ideas I have:
1. Add a currier pigeon quest/unlock. Perhaps something like this:
-Person A needs to deliver a letter or something to Person B but can’t spend the time to deliver it. We take on the quest.
-Person B, upon delivering said item, comments that “You traveled all that way to give me this? There has to be an easier way. A friend of mine spoke of training birds to deliver messages. Why not talk to him?” You then get quest to talk to nearby Person C.
-Person C has a small coop or cage and has been training homing pigeons. He asks you to test the idea by catching a bird and bringing it to him. He then gives you one of his birds as a reward.
-Congrats. You now have a Currier Pigeon that can carry a message (with a max carry weight) to drop off at someones house or inn. Reasonably, a bird could carry small stuff like herbs or fiber but not an axe. So some sort of stipulation would apply.
2. Postal service. Have a mail currier at the taverns or Inns so that we can leave items with them for our friends to pick up. If you don’t want to add a new NPC, just add the ability to the tavern keepers. This way it wouldn’t cost taxes and we can still offer items to offline players.
