    [3/4/2019 10:05:23 PM] Rhonwyn Pendragon: Blessings be, wayfarer, and welcome to Northwood. My name is Rhonywyn Pendragon, and as town crier I assist new travelers here. I can bind your recall point here, if you wish. Here is a list of all lots in the area. Select a lot and hit 'Set Compass Destination' and I will give you directions using your compass. If you need gold, we always have mail that needs delivery. I can accept any undelivered mail you might find while adventuring. I can also check on any lost mail if you need me to do so.

    - so I thought - oh, maybe I lost some mail, but didn't know it? I'll check on it -- so I clicked 'Lost Mail'

    [3/4/2019 10:05:27 PM] Echondas: i lost my mail
    ^^ but the keyword said 'lost mail' - which is a lot different than this.. am I lying now, and will the Oracle be upset?

    [3/4/2019 10:05:27 PM] Rhonwyn Pendragon: All right - but don't let this be a habit! We can not forgive this often! I've cleared your name from the registry. You can now ask to deliver more mail if you so choose.
    ^^ uh oh .. now they think I lost some mail - pretty sure I didn't, that's why I wanted to 'check on any lost mail'. Is the Oracle going to be annoyed?

    [3/4/2019 10:05:35 PM] Echondas: i lost my mail
    [3/4/2019 10:05:35 PM] Rhonwyn Pendragon: Sorry, I've already forgiven you once this month! You'll just have to wait until we perform a thorough search. Come back next month and ask again.

    ^^ just to be sure, I clicked the 'lost mail' keyword again, and got the same translated type in phrase - which is different in a subtle but IMHO an important way.

    Agreed, that is not displayed well. I did the same thing once and was like what the hell? Could possibly be something very clear like I lost my mail to make it very clear.
