When you create a message using the notebook, I noticed you can get it rated as either "fine" or "foul". I know getting a "fine" rating restores health. What happens though when you get a foul rating? Does it have any negative consequences?
Basically some people can lie and hurt other players; example:
I was playing the other day and I came across a deep hole and couldn't see the bottom properly, there was a note in front of the hole with the message "take a step forward". I got closer to look and actually saw the red "spirit" of another player walk and fall in and die when they hit the floor.
I gave that note a foul rating and also set a note before the foul one saying something along the line of "don't believe people"
So in a nutshell, the foul rating just acts as guidance to whether a note is good advice to follow or not, (usually).
