It would be the former. You would create a number of personae for your realm, with each player having one by default. If a player has two different characters, or if you want to track what a particular NPC knows, you could create additional personae for those situations. Then you could control what's revealed to those individual personae.

That is...awesome. I look forward to this, I'm glad you guys are taking the time to do it this way, it seems uber-flexible.

+1to this,as my players have multiple characters they are managing at times. Would this allow the player to have multiple characters open (like hero lab allows?) or simply have multiple characters residing in on realm?

That's unknown at this point in time. Letting players view what's know from the perspective of multiple characters at the same time will likely introduce an extra level of complexity for us. Depending on how much complexity that is, we may or may not support that in the first release of the functionality. Players may need to switch between personae and view each one independently, at least in the first iteration. We may also be able to leverage functionality we'll already need for GMs to provide the capability for players. I can't commit on this until we're looking more closely at what's involved.

@Rob..
that works.. thanks for clarified response....could the ability to open multiple sessions (aka like Herolab) be an approach? then you would not have a lot of internal coding would you?
Though would this approach would require multiple cloud links for players thus multiple accounts?
