Thats part just part of my definition of what imms are. I think of imms
(at least those that have any contact with the mortal population) as being
gods or other divine beings. Even without total roleplaying on the part of
the staff, anyone who wanted to interact  IC with the players would have to
have some kind of mortal role.

However, what i want to do is make it so that the staff are true mortals
some powerful "magical" powers.
