Private Campaign Forums

So here to request a feature that I think could help a lot of games. In my L5R game I have a lot of player secrets for each character and player. In addition sometimes my players want to do things that other characters would not approve of and would like to keep it a secret. The problem is that these actions are done over skype, private notes passed, private talks outside of game, etc. and it is hard to keep track of all of them. Because of this I was hoping to have a way to create "private forums" within the campaign forums that only allow the GM and a specific player(s) to see in order to archive all the private little secrets.

    Would be clunky, but you could make a page for each player, title it Player A secret, and copy/paste all of the secrets into the Player/GM secret section.

    Killer: yeah I could but I wanted both the GM (me) and my players to be able to add stuff to it easily and have it cataloged. I guess a private page would work but as you would say it would be "clunky".....

    Really you could just create one "Secrets" page and have a private section for each player - they should be able to view/edit their sections individually, I think. Just as clunky, but at least its all in one place.

    That said, another site dedicated to PbP I once used had a "secret text" functionality that would let you post text only visible to specific players, and it was super useful. So +1 to the general sentiment of this feature request.

    I asked for this back when the Reforging was just beginning. I'll thumbs up a vote for this one again. It would be great to have a tool like this.

    So I am necroing this old thread of mine to see if this could be a thing implemented in future updates. Any chance of this being a thing @Kallak?
