A Game Master or GM is an employee of Aeria Games. They are responsible for the overall stability of the game and ensuring that the rules are followed. Their authority is absolute and they posses special powers and abilities (also known as buttons) that enable them to complete their tasks.
One of their most devastating buttons is the ban button. If someone is caught doing something against the Terms of Service and does not cooperate with the presiding GM or Game Sage, they will be banned.
A GM can also kick people off the server, forcing them to log back in at a later time.
One of the most feared buttons, however, is the monster spawn button. A Game Master can summon any monster they choose to any location. This is only used as disciplinary action, but innocents can often times be caught in the chaos if they aren't aware of what's going on.
A GM can port someone from one place in a map to another location entirely, including an area they have out-leveled. The Game Masters use this power for Save the Game Sage events. It can also be used as a disciplinary action.
A GM can 'mute' people as well, preventing them from talking in Trade Chat. This is always done in conjunction with disciplinary action.
