What are Game Masters

In Wurm Online the Game Masters (GMs) serve several purposes, some pertaining more to certain server types. They mediate player conflicts that may result from griefing, examine bugs, investigate exploits and a handful of other less colorful things. GMs are responsible for enforcing rules throughout the game and handling the penalties given to players that refuse to follow them.

Who are Game Masters

The original GMs were chosen from the initial player-base by the founding developers. Since then that tradition has continued with new GMs being selected by the Head GM and the current team. This means that all GMs are players just like you! Typically a GM is someone that has long term game experience, has shown a willingness to help and contribute to the community, and may have spent time as a CA (formerly known as CM).

The Team

Please refer to the forum post Team List for the current list of GM's

Types of GMs

  • Head GM (Implementor) - In charge of all moderation staff (GM's, CM's, and CA's), and handles any complaints players may have regarding staff.
  • GM (Demigod) - Handle support tickets. They collecting information, assist with bug resolution if possible in game, and enforce game rules. They do not assist with normal game situations
  • Arch GM (Archangel) - A GM with additional abilities that not are required for the majority of situations. Can create new items, manipulate terrain, and modify player characteristics.

Support roles

  • Lead GM - These GMs handle various additional tasks deligated to them by the Head GM.
  • Lead CM - Lead Chat Moderator. Manages all CA's, CM's and handles chat moderation complaints.
  • Lead FM - Lead forum moderator. Manages all board moderators and handles board moderation complaints.

Spotting a fake GM

The entire staff (except CAs and PRs) are immune to the /ignore command. As a good practice, if someone contacts you claiming to be a GM, immediately issue a /ignore on their name. Issuing /ignore Oracle in chat results in "You may not ignore Oracle." and thus is a trusted person to talk to. Another way is to attempt to give the person a negative reputation in a settlement, the game will tell you:"please make sure that <staffmember name> is a normal player." All GM avatars have either a yellow or white outline.
