Had an interesting situation occur in my guild. Turns out the GM was sort of a tramp. She’d been having an affair with one of the officers, while carrying on an e-affair (lots of texts and IMs, but nothing physical) with another officer. She managed to keep her real lover (and her husband, who I’m still not sure is totally aware) in the dark about her e-lover. About a week before all hell breaks loose, Don Juan (her email lover) professed his undying love for her, which set the events in motion. She begs him to keep it quiet, but we’ve been friends for months and the other officers and I get his side of the story, which doesn’t jive well with her version (i.e. he was a crazy stalker who misinterpreted her being nice as love in return, calling her at home and work, constantly messaging her after she turned him down). He subsequently gets booted from the guild, but not before forwarding months worth of texts and instant messages showing it was a two-way street between them. One day she pops up in officer chat, announces that she and Romeo are server transferring, taking most of what’s in the guild bank, changing her name, booting everyone from her RealFriend ID, and riding off into the sunset. Still haven’t found her, though I’d love to. The one honorable thing she did was promote an uninvolved officer to GM.Since then, we’ve changed leadership because the new GM wasn’t able to commit what he thought was enough time to running things. It’s sort of evolved into a council of officers who use our guild forums to make decisions about the direction the guild is taking, membership, and use of the little bit left in the guild bank. While the Game Masters we’ve contacted have been pretty sympathetic, they aren’t able (or willing, I’m not sure) to restore the items she took or the significant amount of gold.
