I've been thinking about the leaders of various towns and cities, and how we as avatars can just walk into their homes and offices and start a conversation. It feels off. For example, without any introduction, you can walk through a guard barracks in Owl's Head and go up to see Lord Enmar. Similarly, even though there is a challenge at the gates, you can walk right into Khasi and Siranto's most private quarters without saying a word to anyone. Besides having guards who would try to stop you, these people would also be busy, and would not realistically just be standing there waiting for you to stop by. Mostly you would expect that you might have to schedule an appointment. I know this fits into the whole discussion of NPC schedules, but it's slightly different and would be one small thing that would make the world seem a little more coherent.
