"Get your Black Horse Courier! Get your Black Horse Courier here!"

For those that played Oblivion, this will be familiar along with Cats on caffeine running around the Imperial City. For those that haven't, let me explain. The Black Horse Courier is a newspaper. Now in a set world where everything has been predicted, this is pretty boring, with only three or four editions. However, with factions taking control of Cyrodiil, becoming the Emperor etc, the news actually becomes news.
So will there be a way to keep up with the latest events in-game or will that fall to a group of players who broadcast news?

The Black Horse Courier is a great idea for TESO and would be good incentive for players to excel to get their name mentioned in it. I am sure it is possible to keep it up to date because Everquest 2 has mini-games that have running scores of the highest players .. so the courier news would be something similar. Besides, it'd come out weekly or whatever and could keep everyone informed on events ingame.

There must be some way that the crowning of the new emperor or factions taking over other provinces and stealing elder scrolls must be broadcasted as they make an effect of your own factions effeciency. Th black horse courier is a perfect idea. To have a daily news letter.

I really like the idea of actually having the Black Horse Courier, or some similar in-game news system for players in order to actually discover how the world and war is progressing. Even if they were just bullitens in settlements that updated it'd be a nice touch to the world (better than just big red announcements in the chat box anyway).

I look forward to the day we see a mod in Skyrim that allows us to have Jezza, Hamster or Captain Slow as companions, complete with actual context-sensitive quotes like "Thats not gone well".

Black Horse Courier is a great idea for TESO, if ZoS doesn't implement it, players could just set up a site and put up their own articles and headlines based on what happens during the week......or dare I say....articles on here recapping events of the week.

Or maybe TESOF could add a forum here once ESO goes live called "The Black Horse Courier" ?

That's also a great idea.

Now we know who is video tech savvy. And all of these are good ideas.
