Text in a thread should be like a novel, including all the appropriate grammar.
Do NOT write something like this = John tells Jane that she might need to get a curse lifted.
DO make it as much story narrative like this (both action description and dialog) = = John walks up to Jane and hands her a water bottle, "Jane you should get that looked at by a mage or cleric, you could be cursed."

Do not post FOR anyone else (this includes NPCs unless specified otherwise), you may only set up your characters actions. Any reactions or extra stuff that needs to happen will be posted by me the Storyteller or the player whose character you are talking to.
If you need a specific person to respond or you are trying to get a specific reaction out of people, use Meta Context. That means at the end of the text of your post, you add brackets like this:
<stuff goes here>
For example =
John walks up to Jane and hands her a water bottle, "Jane you should get that looked at by a mage or cleric, you could be cursed."
< John is looking for Jane to talk about her fear of clerics and curses >
This is only needed if you are trying to get a specific reaction from the player your are talking to.

If you ever need to attack someone or do something that requires some world reaction, then always, always, just state what you are trying to do, and the Storyteller will narrate how it turns out or how it works or how much the other person is hurt if at all.
