Plaman has today stood victorious in his quest to gain the sapphire gem. All told, he accumulated over 33 million quest points. The nearest challenger only accumulated 16 million points--a worthy feat in and of itself to be sure.
Even after he knew his closest challengers had stopped their bid for the gem, he continued to quest, racking up more and more points. It is this sort of dedication to a goal which has earned him the right to use the gem.
Congratulations once again to Plaman.
