You can customize the roles members of a town may hold as well as the privileges within the town each role has. Towns require at least two roles with different weights; a "mayor" role and a default citizen role, otherwise you will encounter errors.
- If you change the number of roles, you will need to reset your data, as the role weightings stored in the database will become incompatible.
- You can change the privileges at any time in the config, though
- You can also change the role name as you see fit. It's just the weightings which can't change as those are stored in the database.
Roles are defined in the town
roles.yml file below, which is a copy of the default setup.

Role privileges are how you specify what rights each role has in your town. The below table is a list of all these privileges and what rights they give each role. If you don't assign a privilege to a role, nobody will be able to perform that action, so make sure they're all assigned.
✅ Remember that higher roles inherit privileges from lower-weighted roles.

Some actions are automatically given to only the mayor—such as the ability to disband and transfer ownership of a town. Only one player can be the mayor. If you'd like a "co-mayor" setup, it's recommended that you define two roles - one true "mayor" with the highest weighting, and a "co-mayor" weighting just below that, and assign that role all the privileges.
