Changes in the Amazon Roles

Changes We are making some changes to the way roles work in the Amazon.  We have been running with the current roles since the Amazon started and we think it's time for a refresh, so we have added some new roles and changed some of the existing ones slightly.

New for you: Amazon Messenger Service!

Do you not hate it: you just kidnapped some prey and you have no way to transmit a message really anonymously? Or you fell in love with that other special person but there is no way to express this as 'secret admirer'? Or you are stranded at the Amazon River and desperately seek a way to contact those who are still at home that they come and search for you?
Lighten up! Rescue is here! At the Amazon Messenger Central Station, brought to you by the Paw Me, you can now easily book the messenger service. We offer two flavours: Normal MailAnonymous Mail

Normal Mail: you pay the box, drop your notecard and we will do the rest. We will take the notecard and give it to the person that you named inside said notecard. Attention: we will NOT do the “lazy drop inventory way”. We need from you these data: Username Displayname If Amazon River: location (e.g. near the volcano, or at the Wari camp) If outside, somewhere on the grid: S-URL.
We will do at most three attempts to deliver your mess…
