    What do you mean by "cover themselves"? If characters don't disappear then why do returning players always start anew,?

    We don't always start a new. My mains were created 15 to 20 years ago. I take years off from the game but come back, open the accounts, and pick up where they left off

    Reserving the right, not that it already isn't enshrined in other places.

    Why do you think returning players start anew? Most do not, or they dip their toes in after extended breaks with free accounts now perhaps before activating their paid accounts.

    I took a 7 year break ('08-'15) and my accounts were exactly as I left them when I returned.

    Don't fear the reaper.

    Well thanks for the answers. For a second I thought my char that I worked hard for will disappear in a few months

    I know what Whirlin said, but I'm not entirely convinced.

    You stumble about in a fruitless attempt at foraging.

    1/6/2014: Setheve completes the promotion ritual and says, "Congratulations, Whirlin, for achieving Guild Master status! We trust you'll serve your guild well."
    1/11/2014: Grandmaster Alchemist
    1/14/2014: Capped, and got Loralaii killed by a GM.

    IP can be easily masked by using a proxy.

    But I doubt anyone will do that for this silly game website.

    A lot of people cash out when they quit, not expecting to return. And then they end up returning. Sometimes they're able to buy their character back, sometimes they can't so they either buy another character or start from scratch.

    Another thing to keep in mind is a lot of "official" information is outdated and Simu just lets it rot on the website, unless they got their shit together sometime recently and finally cleaned it up, which I doubt.

    Gemstone in a nutshell: Really awesome game, but could still be 47320478390x better if it weren't run by a company that's run by very stupid people.
