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 Rogues on Dark Castle

Thieves make their living through their cunning
and uncanny survival instinct.  Though not as
hardy as Warriors or as learned as Mages,
their expertise in the areas of stealth, deceit,
and trickery more than make up for any
shortcomings they might have in other areas.
The expession "nothing is beyond a hungry thief"
contains more than a little truth.
 
From the nimble fingers of a cunning
PILFERER to the silent and deadly blades of
the ASSASSIN, thieves are a common sight in
cities and towns throughout the land.
 
Note: Due to their unwieldy size and
severely limted dexterity,
      Ogres may not be thieves.
