Who are the
As Elephant MUD's 'help wizards'
"The following people are the Wizards of
Wizards do not play the mud -
they are Immortals, who create the world in which the mortals
live and breathe. If you experience any problems with your character,
Admin are the only ones who can assist you - please do not pester
Wizards for help.
Now, this doesn't mean wizards aren't helpful,
it's just that generally speaking all the Immortals hold down regular jobs,
or are studying for a degree, while doing work on Elephant MUD. Terribly busy
people. Some of the wizards listed above are also 'Guild Wizards' and look after
an entire section of the MUD itself. Others are developing new areas, fixing
current areas, in charge of MUD departments, all sorts of work.
99.9 percent of the Wiz Ranks have played their
Ele character up through the levels to reach the dizzy Immortal heights they
have. It is a taxing role, and one which brings with it responsibility and seriousness.
We do not 'play', we 'code, or oversee, or develop new ideas.' What? Is it strict?
Too right it is. We are not to tangle in the affairs of the mortals, and gawd
knows they're all having enough of 'em...
The wizards can also be looked to for all kinds
of insane behaviour. This picture
demonstrates quite how an evening of Silly Green Beer and Wink Murder can cause
havoc on even the most well meaning 'Dress As Your Favourite Monster' evening.
Never let it be said that the Wizards don't work
hard! In June 2002 fourteen of the Immortals met in deepest darkest Oxfordshire
for a weekend dedicated to the betterment of Elephant MUD. A lot of discussion
and hard work filled the two days, but in the evening we banquetted on burgers
and hotdogs and some of us even remembered our costumes to the losely fitting
theme of Knights and Wenches. For pictorial evidence of these immortal goings
