CMs are players of the game, with very few additional powers and responsibilities. The powers which CMs have are strictly related to community features, such Forum Moderation and the ability to moderate and mute players from community features in game and on Discord.
Community Moderators play a vital part in the community of the game, and act as an excellent bridge between players and I (JTK), so that I can concentrate on improving the game, developing new features, and such.
CMs will generally be as helpful as possible to all players. But they are players, they can get involved in wars and everything else, if they are so inclined.
