    HARCORE lost two characters of great reknown this week. Both were champions of their given profession with many great deeds to their name. The first of which was Lord Anaguar. Active in the competition since 6th November of last year, Anaguar the Monk reached the ripe old age of level 24. He met a particularly tragic end in being gangbanged by a pack of rampaging Zombies in Potter's Field, but let's all agree to remember him as he lived. Looking to avenge his death is Duaguar the Half-Elf Monk, who shall carry the family name with pride and/or eventual death.

    Our other particularly painful loss of this week is that of Lord Rattas the Champion Wizard. Reaching an even riper old age of level of 27, his death was also near Potter's Field. A Tree Spirit managed to ambush poor Rattas while on his hands and knees exiting the area. Lord Rattas has chosen to continue on with his character, and so we wish him well in his newfound lease on eternal life, and thank him for his time in the HARDCORE league.

    Also exiting the competition this week is Spraggeth, dead to a disconnect but survived by his sister in arms Chayze. Vimo and Lychon both had their runs brought to a close compliments of Hobgoblin claidhmores, Furdi commited suicide by Thunder Troll, and Ameren, Aliku, and Gazlowe were all Grimswarm food. Lastly, Borrs the Sorcerer retired from the competition.

    Stepping up to fill the ranks are the Elven Ranger Aurelis, and Sorcerers Qimo and Mimo, the latter two obviously of the 'imo clan. Warriors Machon and Khamas also joined the fray. Finally, we have Mubble the Monk, Maic the Paladin, and Elunas the Shapeshifter, who has most recently morphed into a Monk.

    That'll do it for this week's Roster update. See you, HARDCORE.

    Just a clarification, Aurelis is a Ranger, not a Rogue.

    HARDCORE witnessed a particularly painful death this week in the fall of Lord Ainumorco. On the very day of reaching level 20, Lord Ainumorco was struck down while exploring a new hunting ground. A similar fate befell Tannellen, Ainumorco's successor. The Paladin Ainumorco was a one-time champion of the profession, a member of The Imperiled Few, and a fierce competitor. He is survived by the newly arrived Elven Ranger Tannolas, who we wish all the luck in the world.

    Another week of war against the Grimswarm has brought a number of casualties, including Maic the Paladin and Orosch the Ranger. Also meeting a particularly early end was Malthric the Paladin, who ambushed by a Lesser Orc on a return trip from the silver mines. His twin brother Malthrick carries on the family line and profession, and is off to a far stronger start. Finally, a pair of warriors have joined the ranks, Grubauer and Ardey. Both are noted competitors, but Ardey in particular has shown himself to be one of HARDCORE's finest. To find out just what he did to earn such prestigious accolades, check out the weekly leaderboard update: http://forum.gsplayers.com/showthrea...83#post2011683

    That's a wrap for now. See you next week, HARDCORE.

    Following a discussion on the HARDCORE discord, group hunting rules have been changed.


    PREVIOUS: When hunting with other HARDCORE characters, all members of the party should be able to gain experience from at least one of the creatures in the given area. Any member of the party may skin the corpse or loot the creature regardless of whether or not they landed the killing blow. However, loot may not be shared. Whoever performs skinning will keep the skin, and whoever loots the corpse keeps all resulting treasure. Silver/Loot may not be shared at any point once gained. Alternate taking turns skinning and/or looting should you wish to divide the spoils.

    Current: When hunting with other HARDCORE characters, all members of the party should be able to gain experience from at least one of the creatures in the given area. Any member of the party may skin the corpse or loot the creature regardless of whether or not they landed the killing blow. Loot earned solely throughout the hunt may be shared amongst the party as desired within a reasonable period of time during or following the hunt. All members of the hunting party must be active participants in order to receive loot.

    These changes were made in order to encourage group hunting amongst your fellow HARDCORE members, and make sharing of loot less burdensome. If anyone has concerns or suggestions, this is the forum to voice them.

    I'll get you on the books. Good luck! If you're so inclined, tune to the HARDCORE lich channel to chat with your fellow competitors.

    Tobbot perished by the hands of a fire guardian, pockets stuffed full of boxes.

    Flygr just bit the dust to a swarm of mongrel trolls. Better luck next time.
