Gemstone IV News
From GameMaster Estild, of the Cleric and Empath Team:
Shrines will now provide a bonus or penalty for Clerics when they BLESS a gem to create a holy receptacle (325). Being in a shrine of the Cleric's deity will provide the greatest benefit. Being in a shrine of another deity who is aligned with the Cleric's deity will provide a smaller benefit.
And being in a shrine of another deity who is opposed to the Cleric's deity will provide a penalty.
Magical Workshops will no longer provide a bonus to success. Minor failure, as defined by the gem not exploding, will no longer prevent the gem from being sold to a gem shop.
