I am officially off DM'ly duty for the time being! Please direct any questions you would normally send my way to any other member of the DM Team! I'ma have a baby sometime in the coming days and I'm taking this time to relax, and then have a bit of maternity leave from DM stuff. You'll probably still see me now and then playerside, though. Let's be real.

This is for forums and Discord! Please and thank you! <3

Leathan has shifted into the Inactive DM role due to life being excessively difficult. Hopefully he can come back to active duty soon! Wish him luck and good tidings! He'll not be available for the time being for DM'ly things.


On the other hand, I will be slowly easing back into my DM'ly duties. I've been doing mostly forum stuff when I get a chance, but after this week you should start seeing me in-game again!

Mahtan has moved into the Inactive DM role for now. RL has accosted him and stress is real. So he'll be out of commission for DM'ly things for now. Hopefully he can return to active duty soon!

Raua has moved into the Inactive DM role, due to RL being RL and making her super busy as she prepares to move out of her homeland. That would be stressful for anyone, so let's wish her luck and let her de-stress as much as she can!

Good luck, have fun, come back soon!

Yimmi has temporarily moved into the Inactive DM role! He's a doctor, though, and the whole world is in a pandemic, so... Of course he has!

Keep being a hero, you glorious Yim, and we'll see you when you get back!

Hey folks,

I've been absent for a while now and it's long overdue that I step down from DM. Real life is weird, and as it is right now, I'm not really finding the time or willpower to bring myself into Amia (so I won't be around much player side either for a while).
I don't know if I'll ever return to the role. My NPCs have long since moved on from Amia, though maybe, just maybe, I'll find a way to bring them back some day.
I've really enjoyed my time as a DM when I was more active. Creating for this community has been a privilege. I hope to see you all around in game some time or another.
Keep having fun and be kind to each other.

Hello, folks!

I am taking a wee break from Admin/Dev/DM'ly things till the end of the year. I definitely need it so I don't burn myself out from doing a bunch of work with the module and such. Part of this time I'll be out of town with Zoltan for family stuff, but otherwise I fully intend to hop in playerside. I'll still be around, but I won't be addressing any admin/moderator business. It's time for me to de-stress!

In addition to this, the entire Dev Team is on break till after the holidays. 2020 is almost over, and I think we're all glad for that! Here's hoping that everyone has a safe and happy holiday and we'll be back in action in January!

Okay! I am back, but I'm going to be in Administrative Developer mode for the foreseeable future due to RL things. I will not be available for regular DM shenanigans, so I'll ask that I be treated like the rest of the Administrative Developers. I just don't have time to run my usual events, I'm afraid, so I'll be focusing the little time I have for non-player activities on Developer/Admin duties (including the module and hak updates). I may be seen DM-side note and then, though.

Happy 2021!

Since COVID has made this length of time indeterminant.. Hey friends!

Not that I've really been "inactive" in terms of actual activity level, I'm sure you've noticed I'm still pretty active in the forums, and I've never taken a break from Development work. My focus will always be an Administrative Developer role, so my functional activity really hasn't (and still hasn't) changed. I'm around for technical expertise. Love you guys, and hope to keep making things for you to enjoy into the foreseeable future!

Re: The DM'ly Comings and Goings

Hey, folks! I'm afraid my attempts to DM anyway have been waylaid. I'm stepping down from DM'ing due to RL consuming my time and much of my creative energy.

I will continue to host and manage the server, pushing updates and doing monthly hak updates (except February, as I have been struggling with pain and injury this month). I will also do website and server maintenance where needed (and I'll finish up the job system pages I've been working on, as well as an update to the heads reference page). But this is the extent of my Administrative Developer duties now.

Today I will finish doing the character transfers I have already received, but any new character transfer request forms need to go to Raphel Gray (see this post). He will also be taking care of LETO work.

Regarding Southport and the Kingdom of Cetha: Charles and Amarice are still the points of contact for the settlements. If there are any further changes, they will be announced also.

It has been a pleasure to DM for Amia these past two years. If I ever find the opportunity to return to DM'ing, I'll jump right on it. Have fun and I'll see you in game playerside!

Hello everyone,
This probably doesn't come as a surprise but I'm stepping down as DM. Being a health worker under all this COVID stuff has been a bit too much, I always arrive too tired at home and this has make me been inactive for far too long.
This was probably the best experience I've had in Amia and I hope that, while I was active, I helped to make this amazing world even better for you all.

See you all player side!

DM Arbiter

Post by Jes »

The Team would like to announce the new administrative role of Dungeon Master Arbiter. This DM will act as the point of contact for the players to share their concerns/complaints about anyone on the staff, and will ensure that issues related to DM/Staff behavior and activity are handled appropriately. He will hold each DM accountable to activity requirements and complaints about their behavior.

As a neutral and trusted, unbiased party among the present Staff, Maverick00053 was chosen for this role.

Maverick will be the one you can contact directly if you have any staff complaints. He will also take more anonymous complaints or concerns through the Amia Feedback Form for the same purpose.

Thanks, Mav!


(The Inactive DM Role is being culled also, due to new DM activity guidelines, as overseen by Mav.)

Re: The DM'ly Comings and Goings

Our new DM Guidelines are visible here for everyone to see now.

With these in mind, the following DMs are stepping down today, with some potentially to return within a couple weeks:

Rafaelmacgyver
TheRogue
Mahtan
Khylaria

Raua will no longer be doing DM duties, but will remain an Administrative Developer.

I will be stepping back in as DM with these new guidelines in mind also. I expect March to be my low activity month, however, and I will not be assigned to any particular faction at this time.

We hope these changes will help move Amia forward and keep us inspired and our listings accurate!

Reminder: There is a form at the beginning of this thread that you can use to apply to be a DM. You can also send the DMs your ideas/plans for one-off (or a small number of) events and be a Guest Story Teller.

For a multitude of private reasons I'm stepping down from any staff involvement. There have been a lot of fun times, but it's time for me to move on.

Take care, Amia

Hello everyone! - I’m stepping down as a DM and as a Developer, and I’m likely not going to be around playerside for a long time either. IRL has become super busy due to work and some personal problems, and so I can only apologise to the players who have enjoyed the events that I had begun. Feel free to hit me up on discord if you want to talk. So long Amia, stay classy.

Due to some RL stuff piling on I need to take an 2-week break to focus on catching up to my current coursework.
