Nominations will be open for at least 48 hours. Self nominations are encouraged. A single player will be able to hold multiple positions. The Game Manager has overall authority for activities in the RPG. He determines random events and can insert/remove elements to guide and enhance storylines. He determines when characters die from age or unpredicted (non-storyline) violence or accident. When he determines that an event will occur that directly affects a character he notifies that player so the player can work it into his storyline. If the player cant do so the Game Manager will write the event story himself.
