My first experience with Gemstone was Gemstone III on AOL when I was around 14 or 15 years old. I was a big fan of fantasy novels by authors like Melanie Rawn and David Eddings and it was enthralling to explore a fantasy world and create a custom character. I'm an avid reader so exploring a world via text and using my imagination to bring it to life is more attractive than graphics that might not match up with what you envision. I've played a lot of modern MMOs since then and nothing scratches the same itch that Gemstone does in regards to creating a unique character. From features, to clothing, to items, etc. there are numerous ways for you to make your character unique albeit in the form of text on a screen. If you enjoy exploring a world, interacting with other players via roleplaying, and not running full tilt towards an end-game/dead end, then Gemstone IV might be a very worthwhile experience for you.

I returned full time in 2010 and haven't regretted it for a minute. The storytelling has been fantastic across the game from GM Kenstorm's multiple storylines to the involvement from GM Marsteform in Icemule to aid from GM Haliste and others for River's Rest then across to Ta'Vaalor and Ta'Illistim. Teras has a new guru and the game seems more alive with updates, stories, events, merchants, and community over the past 5 years it feels like a golden age for a game I've played for 20 years.

I greatly endorse giving it a try or checking the gswiki out with the recently announced f2p accounts you can experience all the aspects of the community and roleplaying it has to offer then take the robust mechanic and combat system on the trial basis.
