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, #help, #roleplay-in-elanthia).

We are still looking for a volunteer to take on #roleplay-in-elanthia on a permanent basis!

General GemStone IV


Evician asked, “are paladins ever going to be able to assess weapons or armor like warriors can?” GM Naos and ASGM Estild replied that paladins will most likely never be able to assess things, as that is one of the benefits of being a warrior.


Naamit posted a reminder about the QST-related meeting this evening, “This meeting is on Wednesday 9/18 @ 9:30 PM EST Lich ID # 18258. We’re talking about all sorts of fun things and how best to plan for the DOOM. If you are interested in taking part please come and Role-play with us!”


Ragz asked, “How do y’all feel about removing the attunement-flavor restriction on the 425 fire lore perk now that fire lore is useful for all elemental bolts?”

Kiel asked, “can we get 1202 iron skin looked at to perhaps provide maybe half the CvA that actual armor provides? Your skin takes on the quality of the armor group you get from casting it. So it makes sense from that perspective.”


After Symm asked about installing Lich on Win 7, Doug said the Windows 10 Lich install should mostly work on Windows 7!

World of Elanthia


 Juspera asked, “how do you deal with “training” IC? Do you roleplay having an actual trainer? Does your character have some other means of improving their skills?” 

Raelee and Puppymonkeyietius mentioned a bit of game lore about the Council of Mages that explains the structure of various spell circles.

SimuCoin Events and Quests


Lots of general chatter about EG.

GM Avaluka posted a link to the forums and said, “I have paid my teaser fee.” It’s about her Bone Shaman clothing!
