FAME (verb)

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

FAME is used to access a character's fame. The Fame system is an antiquated relic from GemStone III, when fame grew at an even faster rate. Players can opt their character in or out of the fame lists using the SET verb. SET FAME ON to join the lists, SET FAME OFF to remove from the lists. After turning fame on, players must CHECK IN at the local inn to be counted or to update their fame total. Fame will not update on the lists automatically.

Many activities that reward experience also reward fame, such as earning a guild rank or resurrecting an adventurer. Fame has little use in game. Access to Hearthstone Manor requires certain thresholds of fame. The fame lists are also popular ranks of adventurers by profession or race.

Usage

Usage: FAME {player|filter|stats} [rank]
  {filter} can be the name of a race, profession, or "ALL".
  [rank]   is at what rank to start viewing the list.
         25 ranks are displayed at a time.

Examples:
      FAME Despil       Would show Despil's fame.
      FAME ALL 100      Would show an unfiltered list of rank 100-124.
      FAME DARKELF 1    Would show the first 25 dark elves starting at rank 1.
      FAME ROGUE 500    Would show the first 25 rogues starting at rank 500.
      FAME STATS        Would show statistics based on the fame list.

Only the one thousand (1000) highest characters who have their fame flagged 'on' can be viewed.

Help Fame

Fame -

When you are victorious in combat, solve a quest, or accomplish certain other tasks, you gain FAME.  FAME is a measure of your fame in Elanthia.  Being famous won't help you kill things or change your character in any other way, but you can brag about it and every now and then it may help you or hurt you to be famous.

There is no further help available on this topic.

Historical note: as of 9 January 1995, the ENTIRE fame list--every character in GemStone, ever--was comprised of 2123 names; only 1105 of them had 100,000 fame or more. (Reminder: in the current system, the list is the top 1000.) Gender was not recorded at that time, and of course the races/professions still had the old (ICE age) names.

Many of these names are now known as House founders (Enegue, Starsnuffer), or legends in their own right for deeds done & items owned (Sagan, Kree, Jesh, Thalior), or have creatures named after them (Artuero). Compare these names to the goblets in the Legends' Bar in Hearthstone, for example.

Compare the top 100 as of that time:

When looking at the fame numbers, bear in mind that in the late 1990s/early 2000s, all fame values were reduced by 90%. (i.e. While killing a 5th level creature used to return 500 fame, it would now return only 50.) All character fame was likewise reduced. The easiest way to conceptualize this is simply to remove the last digit (of an old fame number), or to add a "0" (at the end of a modern fame number) when comparing.
