==Areas of Focus of the Staff==
+
While all the DMs are here to aid you and run events, we have our special areas of focus. When you need to contact a DM, please see this list and see who you should contact in your issue.
+
 
+
Here is a brief explanation of the areas of focus.
+
 
+
===Anger Management + Problem solving===
+
 
+
When you have an argument with another player, and can't reach compromise, these DMs are the ones you should contact. They will mediate and help with solving the issue.
+
 
+
===Player Relations===
+
'''Any current DM (see above); or [[DM Disco | Disco]] (if everything else fails)'''
+
 
+
These DMs act as the official voice of the Staff on the forums, and in game, when needed. They make and post official statements according to the decisions the Staff has made as a team. Official statements will be tagged as such. These DMs also handle any issues with bannings, and in case of request for unbanning, contact a player relations DM. They also assist and mediate in player disputes.
+
 
+
===Lore And Storylines===
+
'''[[Zweij | Yossi]]'''
+
 
+
These DMs keep an eye on bigger and continuous storylines and history for Amia. They will aim for consistency and variety and make sure the plots are lore-wise as correct as possible and reasonable. These DMs will also aid you with lore issues.
+
 
+
===Drow Affairs===
+
'''[[Dustspray]], [[Ainjyll]] (UD drow); [[Gers]] (surface drow)'''
+
 
+
These DMs deal with drow players issues, and requests. They will help out anyone in need of it when playing a drow (such as lore, problem solving, etc). They also deal with the statistically dubious amount of Drow OOC issues.
+
 
+
===Quests and events===
+
'''[[Silent2001| Silent]]'''
+
 
+
These DMs put a seizable part of their time in running those beloved quests. Nuff said.
+
 
+
===The DC Requests Team===
+
'''[[PaladinOfSune]]'''
+
 
+
The goal of the DC Request team is to have A) normal DC request items posted, priced, approved and delivered within a week, B) scripted and more complicated items or requests posted, priced, approved and done in two weeks.
+
 
+
===Bugs and errors===
+
'''[[PaladinOfSune]]'''
+
 
+
PM exploits and obvious bugs straight to these DMs. Post the rest to Things to Change.
+
 
+
===New Content Approval===
+
  
  
If you have item suggestions, send them to these DMs.

What a DM does

A Dungeon Master performs many roles on the server. In game, they have access to the DM Client, with powers ranging from being able to spawn creatures to create items on the fly. These powers are used by some to run quests for the players. The DM team help shape the world we play in; they decide which lore is canon, reveal the history of the isles and co-create the grand story-lines that are played out in quests. They use the DM Story Forum to announce these events and describe the effects they have in game.

A DM also judges over the requests made, deciding if the request is appropriate in regards to lore and strength, if the roleplay is of a sufficient standard and if the request suits the needs of the server.

The DM team creates the rules of the server and see to it that they are enforced. If necessary they can (temporary) ban those players who disregard previous warnings. A DM also functions as mediator in the case of problems with another player or DM.

All our DMs are volunteers that have chosen to spend their time for the benefit of the server and the enjoyment of the playerbase.
