I don't want to see annoying communication.

Yea, it would have to be opt-in to be feasible, and I don't know if NWN supports that. Other games of this type, a user can create a new chat channel, and anyone on the server can join that channel to see its messages. If it's opt-in, it's not really server-wide, so I don't see the point. I think Discord is the best we can hope for.

It can be done, but it would have to be an auto opt-in, manual opt out system to halfway work.

To me this just smacks of wanting the shout channel reactivated ... The reason this is ... LAG on the server ...

Sending messages to all in game should only be the preview of a DM..

We have as players the town cryer perhaps instead an addition to the options there will suffice...
Where there is a will there will be a way...

Well, In my opinion having a global chat is more friendly to people if you want them to join a raid, ask for a help, or go on a event. I've noticed that none really reacts on town crier message.

Hmmm, why do you think that anybody will reacts to your broadcast. IMHO, town crier is more as enough.
If someone wants join, he will.

So many reasons this would be a bad idea...
