AINU LEVELS, ARATAR, GOD LEVELS, IMMORTAL LEVELS, IMPLEMENTORS, MAIAR, VALAR
These are the Ainu (immortals,
[ I] the Creators of Arda
[ A] the Arata
[ V] the Vala [Architect] or [Mudller]
[Ms] the Maia [Shaper]
[Mw] the Maia [Wright]
[Mb] the Maia [Builder]
[Mc] the Maia [Cartographer]
[ M] the Maia
The Implementors [ I] are the original C-coders and have the overall
responsibility of the game. The Implementors are CryHavoc, Eru, Manwë, and
The Aratar [ A] are highly trusted and have vast access. They can
help with anything requested
by a mortal/immortal and some have main areas of responsibility:
- The Arata of Code, Ac is Waba; responsible for developing mudlle
- The Arata of Mobs/Objects, Am/o is Frór; responsible for all
mobiles and objects.
The following Aratar also have access to all the source code for MUME,
and can in theory fix anything that is broken with it: Dáin, Frór, Ilie,
Mint, Nienor, and Waba.
Valar are highly trusted on MUME
and have access to almost everything. They can help
with almost everything requested by mortals/immortals.
Mudllers and Architects
are considered equally high level.
Vala - Mudller, [Vm]
These immortals are working
in MUME's mudlle and assist
the Ac in developing mudlle
and code. Usually they work on specific tasks all across Arda.
Vala - Architect, [Va]
Being architects, they assist
the Arata of Zones in developing areas and zones. They manage and supervise
teams of builders and usually take the main responsibility in developing
a specific superzone.
Actively contributing, (relatively) mature and reputable Maiar may get
promoted to Valar when the management is convinced that:
- They are capable of self-steered, non-supervised work that in general
is "good for the game", with (when applicable) due consideration
for gameplay and trueness to both the MUME
spirit and the Tolkien
- They integrate well into the current team and will be pleasant and active
peers for the foreseeable future.
- They will represent MUME
appropriately when supervising Maiar or interacting with players, even in
difficult situations like justice
- There is a need for a certain position to be filled.
Maia Shaper, [Ms]
A trusted Maia with enough access to help
Valar and higher gods with
the maintenance of the world and its inhabitants.
Shapers are exceptionally experienced Maia who already have helped a lot
in creating and maintaining the game. Very few Ms-positions are tied to
specific tasks (as maintaining LHs if no V+ is doing that at that moment).
Shapers usually serve as Senior Builders and often fullfill a role as supervisors
for tasks that are not handled by a Va or Vm. Like with senior Mw there
is no general job description
Maia Wright, [Mw]
Ainur of this level have
finished building a full
zone in MUME. They can sometimes
help with bugs and/or report
them to V+.
Some Mw also go on building
new zones or serve as senior
builders in a project and help
newer immortals building.
They can also assist in
various tasks but once a Mw has finished his or her zone there is no general
Mw is also the first level at which one may contribute mudlle,
the online programming language that makes MUME
the interesting world that we know.
Mw and Ms with access to mudlle
are commonly referred to as Mw+m and Ms+m,
and shown with a (+m) next to their names
in VIEW WIZLIST.
Maia Builders, [Mb]
A Maia who has finished describing a full zone.
Maia Cartographer, [Mc]
A Maia who has helped building
or improving a small part of Arda, or who still works on describing the
Maia, [ M]
This is the lowest rank among the Maiar. Newly immorted characters start
as a "plain" Maia. Maia have not yet begun shaping the world of
MUME or have no intent to
Maiar of Mw or lower rank can be considered as plain [ M].
The command VIEW WIZLIST
will provide you with a complete list of all active Ainur
while VIEW WIZRETIRED
will show all retired Ainur.
