The job of the Alliance Liason is to represent the views of alliances in matters such as game design, speedgame setups, situations that arise during a round etc. Basically to ensure that the game is and will be enjoyable for alliance players. It's the equivalent of being head of the ill-fated PA Senate, although hopefully with regular meetings between the HC's and Aryn this version won't die a death. The job also has to balance the needs of the smaller, 10 player type newbie alliances with the needs of the large veteran alliances such as Fang and Eclipse.
