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

The 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.

In January 2018, The TownCrier officially became a Meeting Hall Organization based in the town of Wehnimer's Landing.

When the 2020 changes were made to ESP, the TownCrier became available as an OOC ESP Channel, too, and news headlines are delivered simultaneously to both LNet and ESP now so that people can pick the one most convenient for them.


  • The newscast is primarily an out of character resource and available via ESP (ESP TUNE TownCrier) or Lich on LNet (;tune TownCrier)
    We don't promise 24/7 newscasting, but we're able to do so more often than not.
  • Daily news publication deadline is 8pm Eastern, the day's newsfeed becomes live around midnight with Newsby.
  • There's a very small podcast each day to inform you of today's events in GemStone. This can be heard over Alexa via the Daily Flash Briefing, "Today in GemStone IV" or "GemStone IV TownCrier" at Apple Podcasts or Google Podcasts (a link seems to be needed to find it on Google):
