GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE

Welcome to GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE. This contest started out as a personal challenge that garnered enough interest to bring others on board. The basic essence of the contest is simple. You make a new character, in GemStone IV Platinum, and if the character dies, you are out. With that basic premise out of the way we will get into the various rules that need to be put into place to ensure a fair competition. Please keep in mind that this contest is run primarily on an honor system and we are trusting participants to follow the rules.

Contest Rules

  • All participants, upon creation, must be posted in the GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE thread. This includes name, race and profession. They must be created after July 17th, 2017.
  • Upon death you should submit a post to the thread informing the community of the character’s death and immediately delete the character. Inventory may be transferred to a non-HARDCORE character prior to deletion.
  • HARDCORE characters must be self-spelled. This means no outside spells may be used. Spells the character can activate themselves from Magic Items or Scrolls are permitted.
  • Items and silver may not be obtained from other characters. This means nothing may be received from another character or player shop. All silver and inventory must be earned by the HARDCORE character. NPC shop purchases are permitted. Items the HARDCORE character obtained from a merchant, including raffles and merchant services, are permitted.
  • Items from a grand auction, Platinum monthly raffle, Duskruin, Delirium Manor or other "pay to play" or "1 win per account" sources are not permitted. Items from Reim are permitted but only from your daily free Reim run.
  • No outside services from OTHER CHARACTERS are allowed. This includes:
    • Armor skills
    • Artisan Skills
    • Blessing
    • Enchanting/Ensorcelling/Elemental Resistance
    • Healing
    • Locksmithing
    • Mass spells
  • Deaths resulting from PvP, direct GameMaster action, or GAME WIDE outage are exempt. Also any death that is a required part of a task that may or may not exist for a specific society is exempt.
  • GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE characters cannot use any item purchased with Simucoins. Similar items found normally are allowed.
  • GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE characters should toggle on the ability to view their level in their profiles.

Rewards

The biggest reward is the honor and prestige from your fellow GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE players. That said, to make it interesting, I will be offering the following prizes to participants:

  • Upon reaching level 20 a GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE character can show their Lord/Lady title to Brinret for a 1 million silver reward payable to a non-HARDCORE character of their choice.
  • Upon reaching level 40 a GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE character can show their Great Lord/Lady title to Brinret for a 5 million silver reward payable to a non-HARDCORE character of their choice.
  • Upon reaching level 70 a GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE character can show their High Lord/Lady title to Brinret for a 10 million silver reward payable to a non-HARDCORE character of their choice.
  • Upon reaching level 100 a GemStone IV Platinum HARDCORE character can show their Grand Lord/Lady title to Brinret for their choice from an AUCTION QUALITY prize chest for a non-HARDCORE character. Additionally the HARDCORE character is now exempt from deletion on death.
