Copies of characters, with the originals unaltered, can be copied once from port 6666 to 6969 under these rules:
1. Up to only 2 characters at most that have run from same IP on port 6666 can be transferred.
2. No vault contents, golems, consignments, inventory or godload objects can be transferred.
3. Only equipped items can be transferred but not equipped containers filled with items.
4. No gold can be transferred.
5. Only up to 5000 platinum can be transferred to allow them to buy roughly 1 piece of GL on port 6969.
6. No XP or quest points can be transferred.
7. No quest equipment can be transferred.
8. Only 50% of HP or mana past 1000 or 50% of movement past 500 can be transferred. So if they have 3000 hp, it's 1000+(2000/2)=2000 hp kept.
Maximum HP or mana that can be transferred is 3000.
Maximum movement that can be transferred is 1000.
Limit of 100 KI can be transferred.
To start the process send a tell to Julian on port 6666 or 6969, if I don't respond to you on 6666, and I'll start.

More Information About Barbarians on Dark Castle

The Barbarian class is just how it sounds--big,
dumb, and powerful fighters. Barbarians anger
easily, forgive easily, and love a good time and
wild brawl.  Treat them as you might a rowdy
child.
 
Barbarians are best known for their impetuous
nature and awesome prowess in battle.  Whether you
face a mighty CHIEFTAIN or wild
ATTLERAGER, it's never a good idea to be on
the wrong side of an angry barbarian!
 
Barbarian battle skills are centered primarily
around dealing massive amounts of melee damage as
quickly as possible.  As a result of the
tremendous amounts of damage barbarians are able
to dish out in a wild and furious assault, they
are somewhat less defensive than other melee
classes.
 
Note: Due to their very tiny size and
non-combative nature,
      characters of the Pixie race may not
become barbarians.
