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! We’re also looking for volunteers to adopt any of the other channels. Contact ArmyJen#0001 to volunteer.

General GemStone IV


GM Quilic announced, “Plz note: QST Premium Storyline will be starting off at 3:30pm instead of 4pm EST, and will start off in Selbi’s Office, inside Hale Hall. And… um… yes. Buy deeds.”


GM Quilic announced, “Storytime will start at 3:30pm EST in Selbi’s Office, inside Hale Hall. Itinerary: 1) Blood Ritual (largely on you guys) 2) Lowering/Raising the barrier (largely on you guys) 3) {redacted} 4) Death 5) {redacted} 6) {redacted} The End”

Ceyrin posted a link to the forums.

GM Quilic reminded, “Reminders: Meet in Selbi’s Office, ready to perform a Blood Ritual to summon Aahlara Be prepared to drop the barrier when instructed, to let Nazhor in. And, um… there’s gonna be combat. So, yeah. Buy deeds.Triage, as always, in Gardenia Commons. I probably won’t let it get overrun. Expectations: Expect the same rough level ranges in the same rough areas as always (weakest to the west, midrange to the south, near-cap to the east, cap+ to the north). Expect to die, perhaps “unfairly”.”

GM Quilic announced, “HIGHLY recommend that when there’s a call for a break in the action, people head back to GC. Just sayin. Those who don’t may miss some things of import”


GM Naionna announced, “Lectoria will be in the small park of the Landing soon to work on costumes!” then “Moltin the fabulous has decided to come and help Lectoria with her work, so come and join them!”

GM Naionna later announced, “A meeting at Moot Hall will be held in about ten minutes to discuss the Landing defense system and taxes! All are invited!”


GS R-man/Hammerr’ asked, “Hey, what is the minimum amount of Perception ranks one should have if they get disarmed and need to use the Recover action?” ASGM Estild answered, “0 is required, it just results in taking longer to find the item. Every failed attempt increases the odds to find it on subsequent attempts, so eventually, you will always find it.”


Yrsa asked, “Anyone able to weigh in on how much spell aiming affects 309? I’ve been using it without any aiming at all, and it’s still bonkers… how much more bonkers is it with aiming?” ASGM Estild replied, “It counts for half of your spell strength, so it can make a big difference and help ensure it hits more often and for more damage.”

ASGM Thandiwe posted, “Thandiwe posts some more teaser stuff and then logs out. What a scamp!”

GM Sotsona posted, “Just post a teaser and then forget to post in here that you posted something! No, wait, I already did that. Don’t do that. I’m a bad example.”

GM Sotsona added, “I will have to take a look at the identical ones tomorrow, and see if they are actually identical or if I just listed the buffs wrong. I tried to avoid duplicates as much as possible but I was limited in what buffs would be approved so some are probably inevitable. As for the missing ones. Ghezresh was on purpose. I didn’t want confusion with the EG storyline bracelet and I wasn’t even sure if the beads would be ready in time anyway. The others were just because of time constraints or issues thinking of messaging/buffs/etc that were lore appropriate. So I held off for a future update.”
