The GemStone Universe
The Unarmed Combat System encompasses a unique combat style which features four types of attacks: Jab, Punch, Kick and Grapple. This system replaces Voln fu (Kick, Punch and Throw) as the primary unarmed attack method used against Undead creatures. Unarmed combat attacks are not, however, limited to the undead. They can be used against all creatures and characters.
Effectiveness with unarmed combat depends significantly upon a character's brawling skill. Although similar to AS/DS in its functionality, unarmed combat replaces melee and ranged weapons with the hands and feet, and AS/DS mechanics with Unarmed Attack Factor (UAF) / Unarmed Defense Factor (UDF).

Here's what's happening in the world of Krakiipedia:
- Krakiipedia now has a feed for the GemStoneIV twitter account on the Main Page! It appears beneath the news section, where you are likely reading this message! The last ten (10) tweets from @GemStoneIV will be displayed here for your convenience.
- Looking for Player Shops? Head over to http://shops.krakiipedia.org/ for all your shopping needs!
- Krakiipedia may experience some downtime in the next few days as some server-side work is carried out. Content should be safe, even if there are outages, so I don't discourage anyone from submitting new articles or editing existing articles. I just wanted to leave a note as to why we are down, if we are. I'll post another new item when everything is sorted. I'm hoping that KP's performance improves a bit after this, as it can be a bit slow at times. Also, I'll be looking at upgrading to the latest version of MediaWiki once this maintenance is completed. That should be a largely transparent move, though.
- Krakiipedia has been updated to MediaWiki version 1.11.1.
- Krakiipedia is now host to a quote database in the style of http://www.bash.org/, which can be found by navigating to http://quotes.krakiipedia.org/! Feel free to add quotes to the database about anything GemStone related, be it clips from in-game, chats or what have you!
