The Game Staff are not responsible for content posted by a member but has the right to moderate it at any time.

The Game Staff is led by the Game Master (GM) who is the final authority on all matters regarding the group. The GM is assisted by (an) Assistant Game Master(s) (AGM) who are assigned responsibilities by the GM. Unlike most sims, however, the members of the staff are not linked to any IC position. IC rank/position has no relation to the administration and operation of the community.
In the event of a Leave of Absence or Emergency Situation where the Game Master is unavailable, they should make all attempts to have a plan to delegate authority to the Assistant Game Master(s). In the event that the GM is unable to leave an LOA plan with the AGM(s), the (senior) AGM shall assume temporary authority as GM. At the time of the GM’s return, they will resume their authority as GM with the delegated authority returned to them unless otherwise directed by the GM.
