Upgrade your Experience!
For an extra $25.00 per month, you can have all these cool additions:
Premium members who maintain their membership for 90 consecutive
days are eligible to own a private
home in one of GemStone IV's many player neighborhoods!
Buy furniture and pets! Decorate in one of billions of possible
styles! Designate someone as your guest, allowing them to
enter your home even while you're offline!
Want to try something new? Eager to test that new spell we
just released? Here's your chance to roleplay all the unique
characters you've always wanted to create! Not one, not ten,
but fifteen extra character slots to play with -- and
all of them are eligible for Premium membership benefits!
More and Better Storage
More Locker Space: As a GemStone IV Premium member,
the locker capacity for all of your character slots is increased
by 30 items. Plus, Premium members may access all lockers
in all towns simulataneously (unless the locker is currently
being moved by the Paspartu brothers).
Locker Inventory Shipping: Premium lockers can be
swapped between two towns while the other towns remain accessible.
For example, the Wehnimers locker can be swapped (shipped)
with the Icemule locker. At the same time the lockers in the
other 6 towns will be fully accessible.
Locker Inventory Organization: Premium lockers contain
5 furniture items which can be used to sort items. In addition
to the 5 furniture items, the locker itself acts as a "sorting"
mechanism. When you drop something into your locker it will
be sorted and moved to the appropriate furniture item. Items
placed in/on the furniture items will not be sorted. Don't
be suprised when you type LOOK IN LOCKER and see
nothing, as you'll find your belongings in or on the furniture

more about Premium Four Winds Halls and the Isle of Four Winds!
