  • Area leaders are players entrusted to administer a city within the game.
  • Area leaders work alongside admin to bring rp and arcs to a specific city.
  • These are going to be standard rules and will apply to all the cities. This set of conditions will allow for the leadership of each city to be involved in its development as well as set conditions that they must remain active in order to hold the position of Governor/Liege/etc.
  • Current recognized leaders are listed here, and only those listed will be recognized officially.

Rules of Leadership

  1. Area leaders must be actively roleplaying in the area they wish to lead, and must inspire RP in others.
  2. Area leaders should be of the race and alignment of their area, as detailed in the table below. For instance, in Trist'oth, drow and evil would be ideal. Certain cases can be accepted (at admin discretion).
  3. Each area must choose a deputy leader. Deputy leaders are also subject to admin approval, and in the event that the area leader does not have a suitable deputy, admin may appoint a candidate they deem suitable.
  4. Area leaders must be an active roleplayer in their area. If a leader (or someone on their behalf) fails to log an rp on the wiki related to their area in over 60 days, they may be replaced by their deputy, or if the deputy is also inactive, by another player of the admin’s choosing.
  5. Area leaders are considered IC and OOC leaders of the community. Thus they must exhibit good behavior and work well with admin. Admin have right of refusal to officially recognize any leader that does not uphold the exemplary behavior of a community leader.
  6. Anyone interested in becoming an area leader must complete the form listed at the bottom of this page.


  • Each area receives a 10,000 monthly stipend to assist with their RP arcs and RPs ongoing within the area. Inactive areas do not accumulate a stipend.
  • This stipend is kept in a separate funding account. Area leaders can donate to that account and request that account's balance by hmailing admin.
  • If an area leader is purchasing customs with this stipend, they need only specify that in their hmail to Customs.

Town Development

  1. Area leaders who request room changes should direct room changes and additions to Builder. Major changes should be discussed with admin. Minor changes can be made at the discretion of the administrative team for a small fee subtracted from the city funds.
  2. Area leaders do not receive income from area shops. If an area leader wishes to have an income-generating shop, they must apply for it and pay for it like any other player. Using city funds to pay for individually held shops is against the rules.

Ideal Race

Below are the ideal races for each city. While it is strongly preferred your character be of that race to rule that area, but not compulsory.

Area Leadership Approval Form

The following form should be filled out and submitted to Applications

  • Name of character to be leader:
  • Amount of time with current character (approx):
  • Have you ever broken a Hollow rule? If yes, which one, when, and why:
  • Area you wish to rule:
  • Race of character:
  • Alignment of character:
  • List of RP you have performed as this character in the area, or to bring RP to the area:
  • What is the in-character justification for your character being the area leader (election, hostile take over, the people love your character, etc.)?
  • Have you ever led an arc, clan, or guild? If so, which? List all.
  • What is your vision for this area? Describe its culture, history, people, direction you wish to take it in, etc.
  • Do you have a deputy leader in mind? If so, who and why?
  • Any Additional info:

Instructions: All of these questions MUST be answered to the best of your ability. The Administrators will then take into consideration your request. During this process you may be mailed by administrators asking for additional information that must be provided.

Given that this is a serious application and may well influence the development of Hollow, there is a fee of 10000 gold which will be deducted from your inventory or bank account. Players who are unsuccessful in their applications will have half of the fee refunded to them. Please note, that the funds you lose will enter the city funds/treasury and will be used to the benefit of the area. If you do not have enough gold at the time but are serious in your commitment, a payment plan can be organised with the administrative team.

All forms must be sent to Applications with Area Leadership Approval as the subject.

Disclaimer: Please note that you are not guaranteed area leadership just by applying and you cannot appeal this decision; it is final. Having RPed once in an area does not constitute enough to be able to rule or lead it. Players do not have a right to area leadership, it is a privilege that can be removed if the administrators see fit.
