| The Premium staff can help you with questions about Premium benefits.  We are also always   |
| interested in hearing your ideas and suggestions for a better Premium subscription.         |
|                                                                                             |
| You can ask questions and offer suggestions in two ways:                                    |
|                                                                                             |
| 1) The "Four Winds Hall/Premium" folder in the GemStone IV message boards:                  |
|    The Premium Staff view all topics in this folder.                                        |
|    See - http://forums.play.net/forums/GemStone%20IV/Four%20Winds%20Hall%60Premium/view   |
|    This is the preferred method of contact, since if you have a question, it's very likely  |
|    someone else does, too -- and a good number of benefit improvements come about directly  |
|    from player suggestions and discussion on the boards.                                    |
|                                                                                             |

|  The current list of what Four Winds Hall members receive is as follows:                    |
|                                                                                             |
|  -- Extra character slots!                                                                  |
|     Each premium subscription comes with 15 free extra character slots.                     |
|                                                                                             |
|  -- Extra Locker Space!                                                                     |
|     As a Premium member your locker space is increased by 30 items on every character!      |
|     Since you also get 15 extra character slots with a Premium subscription, that is a      |
|     total of 450 extra items you can store.                                                 |
|                                                                                             |
|  -- Premium Transport System!                                                               |
|     Inside each town's Four Winds Hall, you'll find a Transport Room (see PREMIUM 4 for     |
|     directions to the hall in your town), and in this room is a ticket and a portal.        |
|     You can purchase a ticket to then enter the portal.  Once inside, you'll be in a nexus  |
|     of rooms that leads to all the different towns, allowing you to choose your ultimate    |
|     destination.  This system provides you instant, inexpensive, one-way transport to the   |
|     town of your choice up to ten times per month.  A sign with more information can be     |
|     found in the Transport Room of your local Four Winds Hall.                              |
|                                                                                             |
|  -- Lockers In Every Town!                                                                  |
|     All Premium members have access to a locker in every town.  (Note on lockers: when      |
|     first upgrading to Premium, you must visit your original locker before your lockers     |
|     will convert to the Premium system.)  You will also notice the contents of your locker  |
|     are automatically sorted by item type, and your locker manifest (located in the Mist    |
|     Harbor Bank) can show you what you currently have inside.                               |
|                                                                                             |
|  -- Increased locker moving speeds!                                                         |
|     When you use the locker moving company, Premium members have a greatly reduced cost     |
|     for all moving speeds and an additional speed choice.  Effectively, this allows         |
|     Premium members to nearly instantly move their lockers from town to town, increasing    |
|     your available locker space because you have easy access to ALL your lockers spread     |
|     out across Elanthia.                                                                    |
|                                                                                             |
|  -- A home of your own!                                                                     |
|     Premium members who maintain their subscriptions for 90 consecutive days can            |
|     purchase a fully-customizable home of their own in the game.  Homes also allow you      |
|     to own your own interactive pet that will even follow you around the neighborhood.      |
|                                                                                             |
|  -- A second type-ahead line!                                                               |
|     Tired of seeing "You may only type ahead one line" messages?  You get an extra          |
|     type-ahead line as a Premium subscriber!                                                |
|                                                                                             |
|  -- Four Winds Halls in every town!                                                         |

|                                                                                             |

|        This is an excellent opportunity to hear about completed projects, future goals,      |
|        and ongoing endeavors in store for Premium.  It is also a time to speak directly      |
|        to the Premium guru to voice concerns, offer suggestions, and give feedback.          |
|                                                                                              |

|        A frequent request we've received was a way to unlock scripts via Premium points,     |
|        and while we couldn't make that work, we have the next best thing!  Xerria comes      |
|        to Mist Harbor once a month to unlock items from her extensive list of allowed        |
|        wares.  She even takes requests for additional scripts to ask for for the future!     |
|                                                                                              |

|    * Professional Guild additions to Mist Harbor                                             |

|                                                                                              |

|        They may not have an official guild, but Paladins deserve a nice place to             |
|        congregate, relax, meditate, and trade stories.                                       |

|        Several more storylines are in the works for the denizens of Mist Harbor, whether     |
|        they call the town home, or just like to visit!                                       |
|                                                                                              |

|        Requests have been made to spruce up some shops in Mist Harbor.  Plans for several    |
|        upgrades are in the works.                                                            |

|   Jainna will take the entries and number them, then in a separate judge's file, remove the  |
|   identifying information from the entries.  This "blind" file will be sent to a panel of    |
|   GM judges who will select their favorite designs.  Those entries with the most votes will  |
|   win the contest.  Jainna does NOT vote unless stated so in the contest description or in   |
|   the rare case of a tie.                                                                    |

|   We'll select approximately ten winners from all the entries submitted (no matter if from   |
|   Prime or Platinum).  There is always a potential for less if there are less than ten       |
|   entries submitted.                                                                         |

|   PREMIUM START lists this information.                                                     |

|   How do I know when my premium service started?                                            |
|   To check on your premium start date as our billing office sees it, type in PREMIUM START. |
|   If there is a problem with your start date, you will need to contact the billing          |
|   department.  A GM will not be able to help you with billing information.                  |
|                                                                                             |
|   How do the alterations work?                                                              |
|   Alteration scrolls follow the policies outlined in the ALTER verb.                        |
|                                                                                             |
|   How do I use PCALC?                                                                       |
|   PCALC allows you to calculate the point cost for an enchanting, padding, or flaring       |
|   service (see cost lists below) for a specific item.  You must be holding an alteration    |
|   in one hand, with the item you wish to have worked on in the other.  you will then use    |
|   one of the following:  pcalc flare /  pcalc enchant / pcalc pad                           |
|                                                                                             |
|   If you have enough points to get the work done that you want, PCALC will tell you how     |
|   much the total cost is estimated to be.  If you do not have enough points, it will note   |
|   that to you instead.  Bear in mind that if there are any costs that PCALC is not          |
|   accounting for, the GM who handles your Premium Point request will apprise you of those   |
|   costs at that time - PCALC is a tool, not a final word.  You will also notice that there  |
|   is a 2 hour "real time" delay between each use of PCALC -- this is to prevent using the   |
|   system in lieu of other in-game means to determine properties of an item.                 |
|                                                                                             |

--------------------------------------ALTERATION SCROLLS EXPLAINED-----------------------------------
|                                                                                                   |
|  The scroll alteration system is different than that of the typical merchant coming to town doing |
|  work.  You will not be in the same room with the GM's who are doing the services for you.        |
|  Instead, you will communicate with them through the alterer's scroll.  Once you get your scroll, |
|  you do not have to stay and wait for your work.  GM's will be doing these services (under the    |
|  name of Sadie) in as timely a fashion as possible.  It may take a couple days for you to get     |
|  feedback on your request.  It may take a couple of weeks.  You will have to be patient.  Do not  |
|  give your scroll to another character.  The best thing to do with your scroll would be to keep   |
|  it in a safe place on your character.                                                            |
|                                                                                                   |
|  IC Note:  Sadie will be coming to Isle of the Four Winds to do the Premium Plus alterations.     |
|  You will not get to personally meet Sadie as she will be very busy working on the alterations.   |
|  However, you will be able to communicate with her through scrolls.  The scrolls will be          |
|  available on a table in her room in the lighthouse, which is located on the Isle of the Four     |
|  Winds, Mist Harbor.  You do not have to wait there for your service, and your item will not be   |
|  taken from you during the process.  You will be informed when your item is ready.                |
|                                                                                                   |

----------------------------------------HOW TO USE YOUR SCROLL---------------------------------------
|                                                                                                   |
|  Below is an explanation of how to use the scrolls.  The words in all caps are the phrases you    |
|  will use to work the scrolls.                                                                    |
|                                                                                                   |
|  1. First you GET SCROLL, making sure the item you want be work worked is in your *left* hand.    |
|     The system will see your item and make a copy so Sadie knows what the original item looked    |
|     like.  Please note - The Sadie scrolls are used to request any service using Premium Points   |
|     not found elsewhere in Mist Harbor.  See PREMIUM 9 for more details.                          |
|                                                                                                   |
|  2. You will then WRITE a NEW request.  Example, WRITE NEW I want this broadsword to have rubies  |
|     in the hilt or WRITE NEW I want a ruby-hilted broadsword with a show of: The broadsword is    |
|     made of polished steel and... or WRITE NEW Please add acid flares to my broadsword.           |
|                                                                                                   |
|  3. The message is copied and stored for Sadie, so she may complete your request at her leisure.  |
|     At this time the scroll will still be in your possession.                                     |
|                                                                                                   |
|  4. Sadie has found your request and decided that what you wanted was well within the guidelines  |
|     she works under, and therefore she has approved it.  She will send a message out to you       |
|     telling you so.  At that time you should READ your scroll just to make sure she did           |
|     everything the way you requested.  If it is correct, you then WRITE ACCEPT.  The message      |
|     that you accepted the alteration will be sent to Sadie, and she will then send a runner to    |
|     you with your alteration.  At that time you must WRITE ACCEPT one more time.  The scroll      |
|     will disappear from your hands and be replace with your newly altered item!  Once you WRITE   |
|     ACCEPT you no longer have the option of changing the item.  You cannot assist to get          |
|     something changed or fixed.  It's done!  You own it!  Don't even try!                         |
|                                                                                                   |
|  5. If between the time you made your alteration request and the time Sadie got back to you       |
|     approving it, you changed your mind about what you wanted (which Sadie highly discourages),   |
|     you would then WRITE REPLY with a message.  Example: WRITE REPLY I changed my mind about the  |
|     ruby hilt and would rather have a gold-hilted broadsword.  Sadie will get your message and    |
|     then reply back to you if that is okay.  From here on the information in step 4 applies.      |
|                                                                                                   |
|  6.  If your alteration/service request is not okay, Sadie has two options.  She will either send |
|      you a message telling you the alteration is rejected, or she will send you a message telling |
|      you how she can make the alteration work with a few changes.  You then can communicate with  |
|      her by WRITE REPLY (message).                                                                |
|                                                                                                   |
|  Some examples:                                                                                   |
|     Let's say Sadie is not happy with your request.  She will send you a message, and it will     |
|     look something like this:                                                                     |
|        A runner approaches you and recites a message from Sadie, "I don't have enough veil iron   |
|        to make your entire suit of armor out of it!  Let's keep it imflass like it already is.    |
|        You can READ your scroll for more details.  Please WRITE ACCEPT if this is okay, WRITE     |
|        REPLY to respond, or WRITE NEW to start over again."                                       |
|     When the runner asks you to READ your scroll, it is because Sadie probably rethought your     |
|     alteration for you, and she wants you to see if that is acceptable since she couldn't do your |
|     original request.                                                                             |
|                                                                                                   |
|     Let's say Sadie liked your request.  She will send you a  message that will look something    |
|     like this:                                                                                    |
|        A runner approaches you and recites a message from Sadie, "I can do this work for you.     |
|        You can READ your scroll for details on how it will appear.  Please WRITE ACCEPT if this   |
|        is okay.  To start over WRITE NEW."                                                        |
|     After Sadie gets your approval (WRITE ACCEPT), she will then make the item.  When it is       |
|     finished, you will get a message that looks something like this:                              |
|        A runner approaches you and recites a message from Sadie, "I'm finished working on your    |
|        armor.  You can WRITE ACCEPT it when you're ready for it."                                 |
|                                                                                                   |

|      Platinum users may use Platinum points to recover items that you are not able to get     |

|      circumstances that would prevent the item from returning into the game, you have the     |
|      ability to utilize Platinum Points to recover the item.  Points determined on a per      |
|      item basis.                                                                              |
