Many players see job titles next to a wiz's name and wonder what the
job title entails. Here is a listing of the titles and descriptions.
This list is NOT set in stone and is just a basic guideline of who is
in charge of what.
The Head of Area is in charge of overseeing that the mud's areas are kept in
theme and approves all requests for new areas. He/she makes sure the typos
and bugs in an area have been fixed and that the mud's standards for areas
There is no longer a Head of Law on SWMud. Law's duties are shared equally by
all of the Law wizards and all decisions are made by consensus. Law duties

handling harassment cases and other Law-related matters.

The Head of High Mortals maintains the High Mortal quest, adds new questors,
new homes, and anything to do with the quest. He/she will also be the
one to decide on adding new perks to the High Mortals.
The Head of Player Council is the wizard liaison for the Player Council. This
wizard oversees the Player Council activities to ensure they are in keeping
with mud laws and works with the Player Council to host events that will bring
more enjoyment to the playing experience. He/she is also responsible for adding
any new needed positions to the PC, taking PC concerns to the rest of the wiz
staff, and handling team purchases. In addition, he/she reviews and approves
suggestions for new events.
The PR Wiz is here to help players and take care of some duties involved
with the players. This includes helping new players in player creation,
updating and adding panic files, helping with some player disputes, updating
'where', and being the first person that a player could go to with a problem
The webmaster updates and adds to the mud's webpage. Some things that are
updated often are:
- Player info
- Player pictures in the Rogues Gallery, Married Rogues Gallery, Coder Gallery, and
- Wizard info
- Game updates
- Panic files
Currently the webmaster is a player, not a coder. If you need to speak to a coder, use the Law Contact form.
- Admin is a term referring to the Moffs and Senators. They are
the only ones who can alter players in any way. This includes restoring
lost levels, experience points etc.
- Caretaker is a term referring to a person in charge of a planet. They
may or may not be the original coder, but are in charge of maintaining,
and sometimes adding to a given planet. The caretaker is the individual you would contact
if you have a question about anything on their planet.
- All wizards are able to perform marriages and assist with bug issues.
