Administrator: The Administrator; reserves the right to override and arbitrate any matter. This is the final authority on all matters when it comes to Tales, be they storytelling or moderation.
Game Master: The co-owners of Tales of Warcraft, beneath the Administrator. They operate the server and arbitrate all matters when it comes to Tales, be they storytelling, technical work, or moderation. This is a team which operates in place of the Administrator and may act accordingly with the position.
.. Building Supervisor: The building supervisor(s) are the chief authorities on all building projects; be they world edits or simple builds.
Technicians: The technicians are a varied role which relates to either development, technical work, or the think tank behind Tales. This is a position which is usually held for those who are tech savvy and may come from varied backgrounds. A technician may hold a role as a weaver or storyteller if requested and approved.
Storyteller: The writers and chief individuals responsible for administering the various storylines of the server. They hold the responsibility of holding the cards and telling the stories we weave - what separates the storyteller from the weaver is mostly the aspect of responsibility and trust placed in them to arbitrate case-by-case scenarios in storylines, or the trust to portray accuracy with lore related issues. They are also responsible for assisting players with character development and character progress.
Weaver: The weavers are responsible for assisting and aiding the storytelling team whenever the need calls for it; as such, they do hold a responsibility to actually assist and maintain activity. You are expected to work outside of your own personal projects. Chiefly, however, the weavers function to tell more personalized stories which bear a lesser burden of responsibility than expected of a full-fledged storyteller. Ideally a weaver is expected to enrich the world and bring it to life with an emphasis on assisting either individual characters or groups/guilds tell their stories. Weavers may be a position which can be held by other roles if requested under most circumstances.
Trials: The Trial rank is a temporary position held in its respective role: e.g. Trial Technician, Trial Storyteller, Trial Game Master. There is no definite amount of time one can hold the rank, it is case-by-case and may be petitioned for promotion at the holder’s leisure with the Game Master team or Administrator. Weavers do not have to concern themselves with trials.
