I think we rely on the written conversation too much these days. Sometimes, you can't replace a phone call. So hard to communicate all the time through written words.

I completely agree. It's much too easy to misunderstand when you can't read body language or intonation / inflection. Don't get body language over the phone unless it's Skype but verbal cues can be so important to clearer communication.

Yes, and make sure the moat is filled and replenished with nasty beasts...

Done and done ... I had the huntsmen round up a few trolls and monsters in your absence ...

Well done huntsman! Must reward that man sufficiently.

And you as we'll for your foresight, dear one. I believe there are hot peasant boys in the dungeon...

That is indeed true, but an actual conversation is usually better for clearing confusion, at least in my experience.
