DMing in a Persistent World Environment

This is a revised and updated guide to techniques for effective DMing on a persistent world (PW) server. The contents cover a number of unique conceptual and practical issues involved with DMing in a PW environment, and were originally based on a discussion at the old Bioware DM-Friendly Initiative (DMFI) Guild forum. Thanks go to all those DMs who contributed ideas and comments.
