Welcome to the TownCrier's Daily Discord Digest.

In this space, we at the TownCrier will attempt to provide a daily digest of select conversations at the Official GemStone IV Discord server covering a 24-hour period from 10 pm EST the night previous to 10 pm EST of the night listed in the title. Not all conversations will be (nor can be) reported and we will endeavor to utilize a neutral tone (although our unique senses of humor may show through).

Links may go to the Official Discord post itself, to the GemStone IV Wiki, or other useful and relevant places. In the case of Discord links, those links will send you to the Discord web interface. If you are not signed in, you will need to be signed in to see them.

The digest was created by and is edited by the player of Qafziel Nalfein/Darcena Wolf-Valslayer - Jen. Have an error to report on this digest or some information to pass along? Contact Jen on Discord at ArmyJen#0001 or e-mail her. Please reference which digest day to which you are referring.

What You Missed

My gratitude to the following individuals for assisting in the compilation of this Discord Digest: Luxelle (#scripting) and Laralana (#general, #prime, and #help).

General GemStone IV


LostRanger pointed out that several eidolons had been sighted in the basement of bonespear, and stated that he wasn’t sure if they were supposed to be there. Puptilian questioned whether monsters across Elanthia may be travelling outside of their typical areas in greater numbers than previously observed. PM Wyrom clarified that creatures have specific zones where they are allowed to be or spawn, and added that Bonespear Tower is all one zone, so it would be normal to see an eidolon anywhere within Bonespear. He provided further insight that creatures generally stay in their areas, but with the perfect combination of creature choice and player character presence, they can wander quite far from their point of origination, but everything is still functioning normally!

LostRanger provided a scripting tip to help players discern which creature may have created a hostile situation like a cloud or sandstorm. You can ;repos info targetid.lic to see if this script might me useful for you!


GM Skhorne annouced that they are hiring GameHosts, and requested that interested parties please apply!


Naamit asked, “Can the West Harbor boat rental spot please be re-opened? It disappeared sometime in the last year(s; likely plural).”


Arianiss had a question about stat bonuses. Leafiara answered that there can be +40 in each stat. Arianiss had more questions about premium point enhancives, which Roblar answered and Alisaire answeredRaelee added some information too. It’s all a bit more than I was interested in researching, but if you’re looking into PP enhancives, you might want to read up.

Milax asked for a Discord channel dedicated to each profession.

Leafiara asked, “Are the benefits to Spike Thorn from training ranger base ranks capped at level or do they also go beyond that like 917 and 309?”

Melivn asked for an update on the status of the Lumnis contest since the verb still reports the contest is beginning on September 27.

coldd asked, “how does the WPS smithy/services work for racially weighted weapons? Does adding weighting via services add to the scripts weighting?”

Ashraam asked, “Why does Sigil of Escape not transport you to the oasis (unstunned teleportation), but instead telports you to “Sea of Fire, Beneath the Hammer”? This seems to be of limited value in SoS, and the other societies can transport to the Oasis I believe.” The player added, “If you’re using it while unstunned it is meant to — Transport yourself (but not your group) back to the local Sunfist Headquarters in your realm. If there is no Sunfist Headquarters in your realm, it will default to a local safe zone (i.e. Pinefar Great Room). So transporting me to the Under the Hammer is actually a safe room I believe (doesn’t appear to be a dangerous room), but you’re basically trapped and have to move through dangerous rooms to get to somewhere that you can leave the Sanctum. It’s 100% worthless to use for transportation inside the Sanctum. 130, Symbol of Return, and I believe Sign of Darkness all transport you to the oasis.”


Alatarion asked about a haste script that checks when it can be cast again on a specific target. FarFigNewGut reported there was a brand new upoad, celerity2, from Glave.

World of Elanthia


Malinya reported, “The Wyvern’s Honor and Ta’Vaalor’s Crimson Legion Reserves will have an “Assault on the Grimswarm Night”, Tuesday, September 17, at 9pm. The patrol will gather in Ta’Vaalor’s King’s Court for spells before heading off. All are welcome to join. Alternatively, should a warcamp not avail itself of us, we will be offering Sunfist task assistance or a warparty hunt or two.”


The TownCrier needs a volunteer willing to cover this channel! Contact #ArmyJen0001 if you are interested.


SimuCoin Events and Quests


PM Wyrom announced, “The schedule will be very similar to last year. The only thing that is TBD is if we’ll be starting games and shopping at the same times. Feedback from players is pretty split between it being “open too long” or “just right.”” He added, “It’s pretty much a mimic of last year. So the 11th would be the start time for Platinum’s merchant week. The 18th would be the start time for Prime’s.”

Sabotage asked, “Will the trove be at EG to distribute the T5+ wins?” PM Wyrom responded, “We’re almost ready to discuss that!”
