1) Are you the only current staff member? What is the difference between a staff member and a GM?

2) Are the GMs required to make a GMPC?

A GM is a staff member, but not all staff members are GMs. For example, a person can be a staff member through being an apprentice GM, running a pub npc, or even just having a position like character sheet checker.

I think WoLT is using GMPC a little differently than most people. He's simply saying we have to make a pc to play in the beta (and of course in other games). He's not saying we need to put a GMPC with the PCs on each of our adventures.

Shadow is correct. You never need to play a gmpc, but it's worth mentioning that by not having one you'll miss out on a lot of the gm rewards.

Okay, thanks. I have no problem playing a GMPC for testing purposes, but when game time rolls around I'd much prefer to focus all my attention on DMing. Losing out on the rewards doesn't bother me.

Sure thing. You will need a pub npc, but you also arent required to use it, though it is encouraged inthe spirit of keeping the pub lively.

I'm not sure if I'm going to help audit characters, but just as an FYI, are we all granted the same Tier for character creation?

Thanks,

Thanks,
To clarify, No.

Each person in the closed beta receives a plus 1 to their normal Tier for the purposes of starting. So if you normally qualify for 1, you are bumped to 2, if you qualify for 2, you are bumped to 3.

To explain this simply: If your name is green, you are 3, if your name is blue, you are 2. This is not the normal case but it is for all participants in the closed beta to reward all of youthem for their bravery and dedication in being the first to dive in and make this project work.

ShadowcatX specifically just purchased CS by check and it will be going through in under a week or so, so there is an exception there, but otherwise that's the gist of it.

What if we qualify for tier 2, are we then bumped to 3?

I think Malchior was asking what if we qualify for tier 2 after the beta. (Ie. They run 1 game to become tier 2 and have the +1 from beta, do they go to 3, or did they just qualify for tier 2 twice?)

In all cases as explained in Tier rules, if you qualify and your status changes (higher or lower) in order to become the new tier you'll have to acquire the minimum prereqs.

This is effected not only by the bonuses from the Beta, but also if someone, say, has CS and then loses CS due to not re-upping. In the latter, the Tier status would not be lost, but the player would not qualify unless they met Tier 3 standard requirements.

Because I just copy and pasted it and it was probably 4am or so. Please drop that in typos and I will get to it asap.
