BUDDY CONTEST WINNERS
They told their friends about GemStone III and now they're reaping the
rewards! We'll be picking three winners at the end of every month, so just
keep spreading the word and you could be next! The names of the new lucky
winners are posted on the GemStone III web site each month following the
drawing. To participate, go to http://buddy.play.net/gs3.

Congratulations to this month's winners and good luck in the next drawing,
March 31st!

Grand Prize: Custom Character Alteration - Guenhafyr Vonzauberwalder
Second Prize: Free Quest Ticket - Jaidhin Sha'Cor'el
Third Place: Free Month Subscription - Machean Zepp

NEW ROLEPLAYING VERBS
You know the moments when you don't want to laugh but chuckle just won't
do it?  Try CHORTLE for those indecisive moments. And for the times that
pant and yell won't work, try to WHEEZE and YELP! Someone bothering you
perhaps? HISS or SQUEAL at them, or try CRYing in a different way.  If
that doesn't work, then simply IGNORE them.  And for those wanting to show
off those finely tuned muscles, CLENCH MUSCLES is for you! Check out NEWS
2 13 for even more new verbs... and get out there and STRUT your stuff!

ALL-NEW ELANTHIAN TIMES!
