In Mush, Actions and other events generate entries in the Room Events log of the room they took place in. However, not everyone can see the log of every action. Whether or not a room log will be made visible is determined at the time the action takes place, based on its Privacy Level. If you want to keep your actions hidden from other crew members, you must be aware of your surroundings and the privacy levels associated with the actions.
Levels of Privacy
Simply put, there are multiple levels of room logs privacy:
|Invisible||These actions leave no room log whatsoever under any circumstances.|
|Private||These room logs are only visible to the owner and are typically phrased in 2nd person.|
|Mush||Logs that are created strictly in the dedicated Mush discussion channel, rather than in the Room Events log.|
|These room logs are revealed to all if they're committed in the presence of an installed Camera.|
|These actions are revealed to all if they're committed in the presence of an installed Camera or another character, human or Mush.
|Public||These actions and events are always visible to everybody.|
A general guideline to follow in identifying the privacy of room logs:
- If you can't see your own room logs, neither can anybody else. (Exception: Tracker can see in what direction characters leave rooms, while everyone else can't)
- If your Covert/ Secret room log is revealed, you'll know it from the bright red colour in its background and the icon. Everyone else will be able to see it, too, when they're browsing the logs in the room
- If a message refers to "You" in second person, only you can see it.
Other thing you should keep in mind about room logs: Tracker allows the owner to view room logs in the last 16 cycles. Everyone else can only view them for 8 cycles. (Note that even you can't view logs of your own actions after they disappear).
It is important to note the differences between:
- The Room Logs; and
- The Actions that generate these logs.
The Levels of Privacy described above are associated to the Room Logs, not the Actions
- Room Logs: Visibility affected by Camera, Myco-Alarm, Tracker, Observant, Victimizer and the presence of any character
- Actions: Can only be made visible by Torturer, Premonition and Confident
So, does this mean any action generating Private or Mush room logs are always safe to carry out? Not necessarily. A person with Torturer can force you to spit out your last few actions to the torturer, regardless of privacy level for 1 ! The number of actions that gets revealed increases (up to 8) as your goes down. The reason why this skill bypasses privacy is because it doesn't reveal room logs...it reveals actions. In addition to that, the Premonition skill allows the owner to see the last action of a person in the same room, at the cost of 1 . Like Torturer, it bypasses privacy levels as it reveals actions.
Also, keep in mind that a single action can produce multiple room logs at different privacy levels. For example, when you eat any consumable as a Mush, a Secret room log is generated as usual. However, there'll also be a Private log generated for yourself, reminding you that as a Mush, you do not reap the benefits of the consumeable!
