I finally won and made it to God. Now I just have to choose an alignment, an avatar, and a city to patronise, and sit back in #immortals and watch the world roll by, dropping some righteous lightning here and there...

...except I'm a little worried by this:

http://lorry.org/arch-wizard/confessions.html

(excerpt):

"(I hate the level name 'God')...Wizards:

Wizards are there for two reasons. Mainly they are there for the people above them to abuse, but as a sideline, they are there to abuse the people below them. It's a bad idea to push all the wizards too far; as an arch-wizard you need someone to run the game for you so that you don't have to do it yourself. If it comes to it, it's a good idea to weigh up the fun you'd get in deleting all the wizards to the hassle you'd get from the lower players with no-one to look after their petty moans.

Basically treat your wizards badly, but not too badly. One nice way of really annoying them is to promote a subset of them to a new level. This helps because if you have to delete all the lower wizards the upper ones still side with you and can continue running the game."

"...I find it helps to enlist a few black belts in various martial arts as arch-wizards too, in case some mad MUD-spod gang decides to beat you up at a meet. Enlisting arch-wizards for their worldly skills rather than their game skills has the added advantage that more often than not they don't know anything about the game and how to play it. This really winds up the lower levels."
