The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

TownCrier is the rolling news feed with all the news that's fit to share about GemStone IV. The TownCrier channel went live on LNet on March 11, 2016. Hosted by your friendly news anchor, Newsby, the TownCrier is published with ongoing updates by a dedicated team of creatives.

The project came to be because who wants to have to choose between roleplaying or looking in multiple places for what's going on in GS? It was named after the first magazine of Elanthia, The TownCrier of GemStone II from 1988-1989.
