Hey,

Further to some readings I am conducting into Tibia's history and lore, I stumbled upon this insert from Tibia wiki which details the following:

"Originally, gamemasters were called wizards. For a long time they had no special GM character at the time and were not invincible, meaning that when they had to evaluate a case of a troublemaker, they were risking their very own lives during that "quest".

With the new account system, CipSoft was able to bestow a whole account the status of a gamemaster instead of doing it manually to a specific character.

After the implementation of new gameworlds and the premium account system, CipSoft provided Gamemasters with a new, invincible tool character, which had no vocation, no carrying capacity, and was always level 2."

In particular: 'For a long time they had no special GM character at the time and were not invincible, meaning that when they had to evaluate a case of a troublemaker, they were risking their very own lives during that "quest".'

Based on this reading, I was wondering if there is any recorded cases of a Game Master of old being killed? If so, could you provide as much information as possible surrounding their death.

I can't say there is, but I doubt that. There are barely any recordings of Tibia from that time because that was before July 2001, and recording your screen back then was rather complicated and resource demanding.
