Gem Quest.

You state your case very well. However, there is no need for me to address

each point of your post separately because as a matter of principle I make gems currently held by players ineffectual for the duration of any Gem Quests I am holding. I choose to do this because I feel each Gem Quest should be fought on a level playing field and any past successes a person may have had are not relevant to new contests.

I cannot speak for the rest of the pantheon but I suspect their approach

would be a similar one.
