Often you may not wish to have your writings perused by all and sundry. You can safeguard your works by adding a touch of runic warding script to the page, or pages, you wish to protect. The command to add runic script to a page is SCRIPT. You only need include the page number if the item you are writing upon has more than one page (i.e. you would include a page number if you were penning script into a tome, but not into a letter). You can include more than one runic warding script upon the same page but they must be included in the same SCRIPT command, each time you use the SCRIPT command on a page it replaces any runic script that might have been there previously. You will be able to use runic script on contributions to the bulletin board if you wish also. Remember that letters should be erased before you begin writing anew (either new scripts or new text) since remnants of old scripts can linger.
Syntax: SCRIPT <item> <runic warding script>.
Possible scripts are listed as follows. It is a fairly intricate little system and experimentation is advised:
PASSWORD <password> - Protecting your text with a password.
ALLOW GUILD <guild> - Allowing members of named guild.
DENY GUILD <guild> - Deny members of the named guild access.
ALLOW GUILDRANK <guild rank> - Allow access to those with named rank.
DENY GUILDRANK <guild rank> - Deny access to those below said rank.
ALLOW CITY <city> - Allow access to citizens of the specified city.
DENY CITY <city> - Deny access to citizens of the specified city.
ALLOW CITYSTATUS <city status> - Allow access according to city status.
DENY CITYSTATUS <city status> - Deny access to those not holding the status.
ALLOW EYES <individual> - Allow access to the named individual.
DENY EYES <individual> - Deny access solely to the individual named.
ALLOW PATRON <deity name> - Allow access to the specified divine order.
DENY PATRON <deity name> - Deny access to members of the said order.
ALLOW ORDERLEVEL <order rank> - Allow access to those of said rank and up.
DENY ORDERLEVEL <order rank> - Deny access to those below said rank.
You should be aware of HELP GUILDRANKS, HELP ORDERSTATUS and HELP NOBILITY for a list of guild ranks, divine patronage ranks, and nobility ranks within a city. In ALLOW and DENY CITYSTATUS you can, as status, specify also: GOVERNMENT (all ministers, Barons, Prince, Field Marshall, and Cardinal), BARONY, MARSHALL, STATE, TRADE, CHANCELLORY, FOREIGN, CARDINAL, JUSTICE, and RELATIONS.
