ULTRA HARDCORE SEASON IX
LAST MAN STANDING | Free-for-All
Saturday, January 27th | 1PM EST
In the early days of the new year, families enjoy the warmth of their home and time spent with their loved ones as they huddle around their fireplace, warding off the cold of the outside and reveling in the joy that being with those close to you brings. As the frosty air brings an icy coat to everything it touches, we recognize this as a time of peace and tranquility above all else, and one to be savored.
...No, sorry, I can't keep that up.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
This January is the first Ultra Hardcore season of the year, and we're going to start it off with a fresh slate. No silly twists, no changes to the game or special terrain - just you, in random terrain, tasked with one goal; Don't die. You don't get a teammate to rely on or any sort of leniency in the rules. You will either prove yourself as the single most strong, clever, well-rounded champion to ever log on to the Everneth server, or you'll be mowed down by whoever is. This is Ultra Hardcore.
No twists this time. No leniency. The two main tenants of Ultra Hardcore are that the world border is shrinking, and that your health will not regenerate. This is all that remains; all else is unnecessary and a distraction for the purposes of this season. You already know how this game works, either by virtue of being a former combatant or by the sheer fame that Ultra Hardcore has earned over the years. The game is as follows; prove yourself or die trying.
Ultra Hardcore has a number of tenants. Breaking these tenants is a sign of weakness and will be punished accordingly.
- Fallen combatants must cut off all communication with all other players. There are no exceptions for any reason.
- Potions of Regeneration are banned.
- Players are safe from PvP for the first 20 minutes of the match. An automated message will be posted in the ingame chat after 20 minutes have passed.
- Spectators and dead players are not allowed to use the ingame chat. Violators will be kicked or banned.
- Mods are not allowed, with the exceptions of Optifine and the Replay Mod. Optifine's zoom function is disallowed; see with your own two eyes or not at all.
- "Skybasing" - defined as building high up into the air to create an artificial chokepoint - is disallowed. Prove that you can fight, not that you can hide.
- Branch mining is disallowed. Staircasing and digging downwards are both acceptable.
Everyone wants to be the best.
Champion - Awarded to the last team standing!
Ironman - Awarded to the last player to receive a point of damage.
Sanguine - Awarded to the player to slay the most opponents.
Midas - Awarded to the player to acquire and eat the most Golden Apples.
First Blood - Awarded to the first player to kill an opponent.
CLOSING AND SIGNUPS
As always, this season will be hosted on games.everneth.com - the server will open 15 minutes before the scheduled starting time. The game will begin at 1:05 PM, and anyone arriving later will be automatically put into spectator mode and will not be able to participate in the match. Don't be late; we can't and won't start over for you.
We'd like to thank gerrybrano for his UHC BLOX module, which is the machine that runs the match.
Kill or be killed.
Weekly Projects Week 2: Community Mega Build 1: Modern City
The second week of weekly projects is at hand! This week, starting today, December 17 and ending on December 23, we shall be starting the community's first mega build: the modern city, a very popular choice by the community! We already have the perfect location picked out: the plains at -700, -3380. Materials such as concrete, wood, glass, and various other materials are needed to make this build a reality, so any aid is appreciated!
We will also need volunteers for terraforming work to fix any holes, clean up the plains, and clear out any trees in the way, as well as to set up a staging point (for supplies, beds, etc.) and Nether portal and lay out the groundwork for the city.
Unlike the Arena project, the city's foundations will not be using Schematica at first, and will instead be made in a similar way to plots. Plots can vary in size, but the maximum is 60x60. Any dimensions smaller than that are fair game. Once the plots and foundations have been laid out, we can get to work on designing buildings on the Test server, at -1300, 4700 (or, if you'd like, you could design and build some buildings at the actual build site, since everyone has different ways of doing things). After some designs have been finalized, Schematica can be used to start construction.
We know this feels like a lot of work, and we won't sugarcoat this, it is a lot of work. That is why this mega build will be appearing every 2 (maybe 3) weeks so that people can not only refresh their minds after a week of building, but also so that people can have more time to gather resources, work on other projects, build their own base, and work on designs on their own time.
Anyone who helps build this week will receive the Stone Tier for the city project medal. Simply PM @EarthCube or @Kaddaschatzi if you helped, so they're aware of your contribution. You can read this post to learn more about weekly projects.
Thank you for your time!

Weekly Projects Week 1: PVP Arena
The first week of Weekly Projects begins today, December 10, and will end on Saturday, 15! This week we will be working on the PVP arena built by IzzyArcher. The build, which is shown in the picture below can be found at -1320, 260 on the test server. The arena will be built at -405, -360 in the Games District on main. This location has been marked by Izzy along with some materials to help you begin building.
We're going to start the arena by terraforming the area around it and flattening the terrain. Once that's done, we will copy it over from test. Once the arena is fully copied over, we may add some more details in and around the arena if we decide to revisit it another week.
Feel free to use Schematica to copy the build, but use of the printer function is prohibited. For anyone who wants to use Schematica, the schematic has been provided for you here: arena.schematic. If you use it, be sure to align the schematic at -471, 68, -374. Also make sure the main entrance (the side with the storage chests) faces east.
Anyone who helps build this week will receive the Stone Tier for the arena project medal. Simply PM @EarthCube or @Kaddaschatzi if you helped, so they're aware of your contribution. You can read this post to learn more about weekly projects.
The Second Voter Raffle Result
In October 2017, I launched a raffle to everyone who votes for our server on our MSL listing. Once you vote, your IGN is recorded in our database and counts as an entry to the raffle. Please note that only real IGNs will be accepted for the raffle. So if the player selected did not recently own this name, it will be disregarded and the raffle will redraw. The winner of the raffle will receive a $10 USD (or native equivalent) Steam wallet code. In order to be awarded the code, the winner must have a Steam account and must provide a link to the account in order to receive the code.
Without further adieu, the winner is...
Congrats my dude! Please PM me on site or DM on discord with your information and I will get your code to you as soon as possible.
For those who also voted, thank you for your entries and better luck next month. If you would like a chance to win, vote for us! Each vote counts as one entry into the raffle.

Season 3 Awards & Beyond
Due to reasons unknown, (Throne Abdication?, Formation of Privy Council?, Zieon is a bloody mess?), the realm of Everneth has not seen monthly awards in months. These awards are meant to highlight achievements of merit, notable blunders, and outstanding performances by the citizens of this community. Their presence on your profile and beside your posts also helps to commemorate seasons past after a reset. So, without further ado, here are the awards for the closing of Season 3 (June-September 2017) and some awards from the start of Season 4 and their recipients in order of precedence!

Order of Everneth Medal
DMost of these awards have been given based on memory (vague at best in some circumstances) due to being very far behind in handing out monthly awards. So I do apologize for those who feel they have been skipped over or missed. I would say though to get recognized for certain items, there are certain criteria we look for. Some examples of the criteria:
- Purple Heart: Be active in helping players transition from newly registered to pending to citizen.
- Outstanding Build: More often than not, we consider builds posted in Builds and Map Talk forum to be worth consideration, however; the rest is left up to written nominations. Post your builds! Don't be scared to share!
- Outstanding Redstone: Same criteria and procedure as the build.
- Beer: Be drunk and fail
- Virtuous: Be active in public projects that affect the community as a whole. (Int is a good place to start)
If i missed you for the Companion of Everneth award, this could be that I haven't seen you play in a while or i potentially passed over your name in the member list accidentally,. If you fall into the latter category, please PM and I will fix that ASAP!
Congrats to all!
King of Everneth, Lord of the High Council
