The rules are basically as follows:

   # A gem must be in your inventory for it to count towards your
     score. (Not in a pack or some other container.)

   # You will drop any gems you carry if you die.

   # Player killing to get gems is acceptable ONLY by the choice of the
     immortal running the event.  This will be announced at the start of
     the event. When run with killing permitted, experience loss for
     playerkilling deaths will be disabled for the duration of the event.

   # Gems will not be in houses, guildhalls, stockrooms or "Fog of Creation" rooms.

   # GEMHUNT will show you your current score.
