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 Bards on Dark Castle

Bards are the ancient storytellers and singers of
Sorpigal. They keep alive the legends and history
of the realms through song and dance.
 
Their voices, when focused through the power of KI
can at times become enchanting, summoning,
confusing, or even lethal.  Woven with spiritual
ki powers, bards have a multitude of songs at
their disposal for various occasions ranging from
a soothing and healing tune to a rousing call to
battle!
 
The bard's music is often exceptionally powerful
when employed as a support for groups of
adventurers travelling the most dangerous of
roads.  Be they a TROUBADOUR or
MINSTREL, a bard always has a quick wit
and merry tune for any occasion!
