Many thanks to Thad for his time spent in this role, but the RL monster is borrowing him right now. We're super close to hiring the Online Events Director, but until then, I need to hire a 4th Game Master to fill the gap.

UPDATE: We actually need to hire for 2 Game Masters to replace Aintza since she's now the Director of Online Events!

Overview:
Game Masters are responsible for our Forum Games and Frivolous Fun forum activity. In the Forum Games forum, Game Masters help balance, run, and moderate games alongside users to ensure that the games run smoothly with little to no issues. In the Frivolous Fun forum, Game Masters moderate and make sure that various threads are active and engaging for members.

Game Masters are also encouraged to run any non-standard games that they have an interest in running. This might be via Discord, or via a existing forums. Community interest and Game Master ingenuity are the limits. :) Be sure to share any ideas you have that are outside of the box via the application form!

Requirements:
  • Be any rank, so long as you've been a member of the community for at least 3 months
  • Be knowledgeable of or have a willingness to learn Xenforo moderation controls
  • Be tactful and considerate when dealing with issues that can arise in games
Duties and Responsibilities:
  • Read and moderate all Mafia and Frivolous Fun threads
  • Archive and/or prune the Mafia and Frivolous Fun forums as needed
  • Work with your fellow Game Masters to ensure a fun, engaging experience for participating members
  • Educate and inform members of how to play Mafia games, and field questions from and offer advice to those running games
  • Enforce and maintain any general forum rules as outlined in the Membership Manual
  • Time commitment of 5-10 hours each week; more if actually running a specific game
  • Notify the Online Events Director (or Cordamora) should any issues arrive, and work with them to resolve any issues
How to Apply:
Email your application with the subject line: APPLICATION - GAME MASTER - YOURNAMEHERE to onlineevents@tarvalon.net and cordamora@tarvalon.net. Please include in the body of the email any working knowledge you may have of Xenforo, conflict resolution strategies, and why you would be great in this role. If you have any questions, email me. Applications will be reviewed by Online Events Director, Cordamora, Keeper, and Amyrlin, Amyrlin-Elect.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Applications are due by March 15, 2022.

Hello friends!

This is a very fun job. If you enjoy games or even the Frivolous Fun forum, I would recommend applying. Running mafia games is not a requirement, you are just the point of contact between the people that run and players. All of which can be taught. So if you are even a little bit interested apply or message me and we can go over what is needed!

This has been extended to March 15! I am also hiring two Game Masters!!!

With the changes to the department, I am looking for more than just Mafia admins. Do you love games? Do you like just chatting with people on Discord? Do you have any specific ideas for Online Events you would like to see? APPLY!

@Chiema Purvene'Caba in the past, this possition was called Mafia Moderator and was moderating only the Mafia games in the Mafia forum (now called Forum Games).

In 2020, the execs decided to call it Game Master and gave it a bit more resposibilities - like organizing Discord events and other forum activitites. The position now falls in the Department of Online Events, which means that it will encompass all online events, including the Mafia games.

Currently Aintza is looking for two people that would fill this position (there are two more people serving currently - Jocasta and Kenith), for a total of four Game Masters.

I hope that made it clearer :look:

PS: The official Free weeks - Shaoman and Bel Tine are still planned by the Online Events Coordinator and the Online Events Team.

I will let Aintza answer you this, but my understanding is that it is not a requirement, no :D

Ilverin is correct!

You would need to help moderate them (or just watch over them to make sure everyone is being civil) but running a game is not a requirement.

Could the duties and responsibilities section be re-written to reflect the changes that were previously made? Right now they're very mafia-heavy, so I can understand the confusion. I think the existing re-work to the overview section is helpful, though!
