I know this subject has been brought up many times but I can't recall if these are part of some past unresolved special quest or event, etc. Considering that overall development of the game is not very forthcoming, can any team member explain what purpose these random message serve? I cannot imagine what a brand new player would make of this if they saw it for instance. Thanks.
