An Avatar is a high-level mortal player who dedicates some of his/her time to helping new players in the realms. Duties of avatars include offering advice and help on the newbie channel and most importantly personal help to new players taking their first steps in the realms. The Avatars are listed on the plate in the Hall of the Avatars north of the Freyburg Cathedral sanctum together with the Advisors. An Avatar may even become an Advisor. You can easily recognize an Avatar from his or her (Avatar) flag visible on the who list. The currently serving avatars may also be seen via the avatars command. Once a player has finished the level 40 mission he or she may become an Avatar. In order to do so the Gods have to be asked whether the player fulfills the criteria for that position. No player has a priori RIGHT to become an Avatar - that's the decision of the Gods. Only experienced players of good character will become Avatar. There are no clan, class or alignment restrictions to becoming avatar. However as a representative of the mud, you are expected to behave in a sensible manner especially when dealing with new players. Avatars should always be polite and -always- be willing to help if they can.
