    Getting Ready for Season 5

    Getting Ready for Season 5 We're in the final stretch in getting Season 5 launched! The Ministry of the Interior has been extremely hard at work last week and over the weekend and has completed very extensive preparations for Spawn. This has been the most prepared and complete prep work we have done yet in Everneth's history and we couldn't have done it without our extremely talented and highly productive members of the Interior. So I hope the hype train is moving fast down the rails at this point! So lets cover whats going on this week. To address some common information that we get asked: World Spawn will be set at 0,0 for easy navigation. The Map size will be kept under 7-8k and expanding 2k every major update from here on on a trial basis The seed will not be made available, sorry! There are reefs by spawn because this is 1.13 for crying out loud. Lets get into it! The map download could take a while. Its going to be massive! Tuesday, July 24th, 2018 - 2PM-6PM EST The MAIN server (play.everneth.com) will be officially closed down an transferred for getting it compressed to a download. The end as well as all playerdata will be deleted and only the overworld and nether will be preserved. The map download size is projected to be approximately 12GB depending on compression. While this is semi short notice, you'll have the whole world available to you. Once the transfer is complete, we'll get the map ready for its demise! Thursday, July 26th, 2018 - 6PM EST TNT Day has arrived! The Main server will be relaunched in Creative Mode and its time for you to do your worst to destroy this map to your hearts content. To give enough time for people to lay waste to the world, we'll extend TNT into Friday evening until 9PM-10PM EST. Friday, July 27th, 2018 - 9PM-10PM EST Main will once again be shutdown, housekeeping will commence by cleaning up all old data, clearing out our databases that house stats, coreprotect data, and more. After everything has been cleaned up, HC will begin moving Season 5 out of our prep build server to Main. Once Season 5 has been successfully moved over, Par will be given access to test plugins and verify that we are ready for launch. Once we have confirmed all of our systems are in order, we'll shutdown and begin the countdown to our launch! Saturday, July 28th, 2018 - 12PM EST The floodgates will be unleashed and Season 5 will officially begin! There you have it Get hyped, get ready. Season 5 is coming this weekend so you better be prepared to jump right into the new content! Faceman Lord of the High Council, King of Everneth How about this view from Spawn!?

    parliament

    The parliament is the collective name for the Staff team of Everneth. Its formed with 2 teams: The Council (Mods) and High Council (Admins). As part of the feudal theme, Mods are named Barons or Baronesses, a lower rank title in the peerage system. The Admins are named Counts, a mid level rank title in the peerage system. We reserve the rank of Duke for times we have multiple HC members and theres need for a clearly defined second-in-command. I am the owner of the server and sit as its King as well as a member of the HC. Currently their are 2 permanent Mods and 2 elected mods. Something unique to our server is that members of parliament may propose and vote on changes to the Charter which is our ruleset. This charter contains all of our rules, the standards for which our staff is created and managed, how rule change procedures are to be done, and clearly defines a code of conduct for both members and staff alike. This is why our "rules" are so long. Everything is in there! http://everneth.com/rules/

    Plans for 1.13

    Things have been quiet, much too quiet For a while now, we've been kinda coasting on by as a community. Much of us have been straight up burnt out, waiting for new features, moved on to other games, suddenly became adults, started college, and so on. Some side effects of this has been that we missed out on the last elections and haven't pushed to make amends to this just for the sake of time and activity. Lots of rumblings have been heard, and I'm mainly going to dispel rumors and confirm most of what many of you have already been talking about. So lets get started here with a non-exhaustive list of whats to come. The Discord Its no secret, the discord casts a large shadow on the website. While we use the website as a gateway to the community, its largely a pile of mud that players must dredge through in order to join us. For those that do manage to join us, the mud is so overpowered they move on to a new community. Who knows, we might even make them reevaluate their lives and discover Minecraft just isn't worth it. I have no idea. So whats going to happen to discord? Psych! Nothing huge. Well, not overtly huge anyway. Some channels may be disappearing... Most notably the map development areas. Categories will return very soon for staff areas and maaaaaaybe the events section. Projects will probably disappear. Most importantly however; a new #help channel will be implemented. This was suggested by FearlessPie some time ago and I believe its a good time to try and beta test his plan. #help will be used to contact staff for problems or ask questions. Once these have been sorted, the messages will be deleted from #help to keep it clean and to show our queue of issues. This should help two-fold: you will have a primary point of contact to get staff help and you will see more transparency between staff and players. In a nutshell, treat this channel like a hospital: Only use it when you need help If its empty, no news is good news The reports forum on the site will remain! So don't fret! For those who don't use or participate in discord, it will still be there. About the staff... Again, its no secret that staff has been running on fumes for a looooooong looooooong time. When 1.13 comes closer to pre-release, we'll have people return to play and check out the new content. At the same time, Parliament will be dissolved down to just myself and will form a temporary provisional Parliament much akin to how Everneth began 2 years ago. Once Par has been dissolved, I will appoint 2 barons(esses) for the permanent seats, one (or two if it works out that way) of these Council members will head up the Ministry of the Interior. Then an election will be started like usual for the temporary Council members. As for the High Council, I will be seeking 1 member for the HC position who is more technically inclined to assist with server administration. The goal here is to have the lower council outnumber the high council as sort of a social experiment, as well as put more technical expertise toward the top so that the load is more evenly spread. While the HC member appointed may as well effectively be the Duke, this may or may not be the case. About the map... Without hesitation, 1.13 changes everything and anything to do with water. As such, this means we will start fresh with a new map to get the most out of the new content. Much akin to the previous reset, Par (as much as it is stable at the time) and the Interior will aim for getting basic infrastructure laid out before unleashing the floodgates. One thing I want to try for 1.13 is the addition of challenges. These challenges are something you would find in old survival maps such as skyblock or deserted island such as: build a cobble generator, build a mob farm, etc. The challenges for us won't be nearly as simple since we aren't restricted to a small floating island, but the idea is there. Feel free to toss ideas around here on the site or in our discord. About the site... The site will stay. Its still a bastion of information that should stay posted regardless of what communication tools we use. The forums will stay for now. Some tools to integrate with Steam may come in later on down the line. Some tools to connect your in-game stats may come later as well. Its a slow and endearing process. About the Charter... There are some proposals I have in mind to pitch once Par is back up and running strong with 1.13 coming out to amend the charter. Most notably is the treatment of thefts. Do we want to remove the ability to return items and jump straight to a 72 hour ban? Do we want to forgo charter points for thefts unless the victim of the theft "presses charges" for it? Reason for the consideration is that 62% of the issues that arise within our community are theft related and the current due process for theft is fairly exhaustive and a long process. Definitely something to debate/discuss/rage/shrug about. For sure let me or a member of par know! A couple of them are representing you after all! In Closing We have quite a bit to look forward to. Some changes are being made. The map is getting reset when 1.13 launches. Staff is being shaken up around the same time. If you have any questions, ask!

  6. 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! Companion of Everneth DigitalRocker, hearsay, HelloDoodGames, Fixemega, Zippur, sirignol, MagicDave_, Xmplary, OriginalYT, Sh3mm, _Cash_, Puddles, KiemPlant, Cookeh, livelaughdream, RoscoesWetsuit, Toxic_Crumpets, sofiahana, DivineBovineYT, Gantoxx, freddysee, InchTech, Legit_Flash, korbinyt, LieutenantChip, Pontuzaa, Kaddaschatzi, NuclearPhys, JazziBelle, Ultimatenotch, NeonNarwhal4, AlohaDood, Javious, ENGLuke, JoMiGo, EspioEclipse, HGWicks, LeonGospel, GeminiBrian, Cerium, Toby_Teal, Mr_Yogi_Bear, UltraMoreGaming, Brenegan, DedBoii, SaltyBac, chiptzel, SableVigilante, N0MOARBISCUITZ, Altimadark, ProfessorDangle, Outkast_, BobIce1026, kemari_kemai, Adriano1804, sam8ddd, UnbreakableWill, Empryzz, BurntCobalt, RemyBoyz_, campbell529, AlexSanchez, Jtm12, BenSwift, Blades88, Juice328, BuddahPlayz, Kenner, wagzal, Erkard, wbafunk Parliament Service Medal EarthCube, Zieon, Kaddaschatzi, lopp Beer Award Pandeoo - Absolute Drunk UHC death Javious - Claiming to be best player on the server and dying moments later Purple Heart of Dedication Kaddaschatzi, RashE, lopp Outstanding Build Medal GreasyTroll4 - Raventon Build RashE - Kingstone Build Kaddaschatzi - Kanada Build Outstanding Redstone Creation DauntlessFive513 - Shulker Storage system Virtuous Medal Puddles - Season 4 spawn and Hub Pandeoo - Season 4 Spawn and Hub EarthCube - Season 4 Hub Kaddaschatzi - Season 3 Spawn Ministerial Excellence Medal FearlessPie - Late Season 3 Morgoth_LotR - November 2017 King's Cross Medal Kaddaschatzi, ProfessorDangle Order of Everneth Medal FearlessPie, EarthCube 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! Faceman King of Everneth, Lord of the High Council

    Current NPCs and Bios

    Archmage Teraphys The King's royal advisor in the magic arts. Headmaster of the Brimlock Wizards College. Age: 57 Race: Galandarian Profession: Mage, Royal Advisor Element: Lightning, Arcane Nobility: Lowborn Teraphys grew up in the small wizarding village of Moctal in the southern provinces of Everneth. As a young child, Teraphys was a troublemaker and mischievous boy who often set fire to the crops. Rather than face imprisonment for various counts of vandalism,, Teraphys accepted apprenticeship in Brimlock Wizards College under the condition that should he drop out, he would be arrested immediately. During his time at the college, his magic became more refined and manageable.While not the highest performing mage in the college, he managed to graduate with above average markings. Then three-years war broke out between the Evernethian realm and the denizens of Hell when the Demi-god of the Undead, Formitiis, ripped a hole in the fabric of time unleash his armies onto the world. Teraphys grew in favor of the royal court in the Battle of Axel where he discovered the vortex that Formitiis had created and sealed it permanently. Once the war had ended, then Headmaster Paelix of Brimlock invited Teraphys to return as an instructor. Initially Teraphys had refused the offer and returned to serve on the Royal Guard to His Majesty. Two years later, seeking change Teraphys returned to Paelix and accepted the offer. Fifteen years would come to pass until Headmaster Paelix's passing. Upon Paelix's death, Teraphys was selected by the King to serve as Headmaster of Brimlock. Immediately following the assault by Loden in spawn, Teraphys was appointed Royal Advisor of Magical Arts. Field Marshal Mendil The King's royal advisor in military affairs. Top ranking military official of His Majesty's army. Age: 55 Race: Galandarian Profession: Soldier, Royal Advisor Element: Steel Nobility: House of Langham - 4th Earl Langham Mendil, of the House of Langham, was born into a house of Evernethian nobility. Throughout Mendil's childhood, he assisted his father and as the first born was vetted for managing the County of Langham in the southern provinces. At the age of 16 while serving as Deputy to the Sheriff of Langham, Mendil took part in Teraphys' arrest. It was through Mendil's suggestion that Teraphys went to the Brimlock Wizard College and through this they became good friends going forward. To gain honor in the family name, Mendil enlisted to the King's Army at the age of 17. By his father's recommendation, Mendil was dispatched to handle bandits and rebels in the norther provinces. During a scouting mission, then Sergeant at Arms Mendil led a reconnaissance unit that led to the discovery of the largest rebel camp in the region. In the resulting battle the following day, Mendil successfully besieged the stronghold with minimal losses. This victory garnered Mendil a promotion to Commander. Once war broke out with Formitiis and his minions, Mendil was teamed up with his old friend Teraphys to lead the King's Army against the forces of Hell. At the Battle of Oldecastle, the top ranking officer Field Marshal Walcor was killed in a surprise night assault. Fighting demoralization, Mendil seized command and turned the tide of the battle to drive the enemy out of the fortress. While considered a loss, had Mendil not taken command the realm would have been dealt a major blow strategically. It was these actions that led to Mendil's immediate promotion to Field Marshal, the youngest ever in the history of the realm. At the closing of the war, Mendil was chosen as Royal Military Advisor to the King. It was through his recommendation that Teraphys would be chosen as Royal Advisor of Magical Arts. Today he also serves as 4th Earl Langham.

    This Month in Everneth

    Monthly dispatch-like things re-re-restarted Staff Updates Council Election As the nominations have closed, the vote is now on for the next term of parliament elections. Your top candidates and current Council are Warwolf595 P_Puddles FearlessPie Kaddaschatzi (Incumbent) This vote will last a week which started on November 23rd, 2017 and will close on November 30th, 2017. Once the voting closes, the electorate shall start their term the following day on December 1st. Vote! High Council Changes For a while now, there have been 2 Dukes at the upper echelons of the HC. This was never the intended purpose of Duke as it is meant to be a singular position as second in command of staff and not co-inhabited. As such both rolo_ and GT have agreed to voluntarily descend to the rank of Count for the time being. Dependent on the changes coming in Term 7, I may be faced with re-selecting one of them to regain the role of Duke. For now however, there is no inherent need for a Duke at this time. Community Updates Raffle and Voting The first monthly raffle was a huge success resulting in 271 entries into the contest. With the success of this raffle, I will continue supporting the raffle monetarily. In case you missed it, the first winner of the raffle was none other than Mr_Yogi_Bear. Please drop a quick congrats to Yogi and thanks to all who participated in October! Let's keep this up and keep our community growing! Map Longevity Survey On November 20th, 2017, I posted a survey in discord asking for feedback on keeping the map alive for much longer than are usual time. Most of our maps last roughly 6 months and we would like to aim for a year and follow through with that for the first time in our communities history. With that I will provide some data collected from this survey and let you all know where we are headed from here. The top 3 picks for top priority projects were the Modern City Megabuild with 62.2% favor, Spawn Subway with 48.6%, and then PVP arena with 40.5%. So expect to see these 3 projects scheduled more frequently in the calendar. With the implementation of the community projects, the average response was roughly 67.8% somewhat confident in these changes, 18.9% very confident, 10.2% somewhat not confident, and 3.1% not confident at all. Out of 22 responses at the time of this writing, staff will be investigating these ideas Tour videos More frequent small events Bring back weekly minigames Customization achievements/advancements Weekly challenges that record the top players on a sidebar scoreboard RP events using Dungeons & Dragons style characters that players create. Tellraw lore/interaction and Summon'd entities for events Promote community based projects Better/More frequent vote reminders for growth. reduce pings Resurrect staff from the dead Out of 37 responses, the top 3 events that were requested to happen more frequently were (in order of 1st to 3rd in votes) the following: PVP Battle Tournaments (56.8% response) Spleef Tournaments (45.9% response) (Tied) Generic RP Events & Archery Tournaments (37.8% response) With the implementation of more frequent events varying in size, over all confidence was roughly 63.9% very confident, 27.8% somewhat confident, and 8.3% somewhat not confident. For the reintroduction of a spleef league, overall reaction to this was somewhat split between Maybe at 48.6%, Yes at 40.5%, and No being 10.8%. Overall wish list ideas that I intend on investigating are the following PVP battles that involve invisibility Custom Advancements Underground labyrinths in the game district Haunted mansion as a tour or rollercoaster Rollercoasters Ice Boat Races Community Projects This is an attempt at starting large projects that the community can contribute to as a whole. These projects change each week so that we don't get burnt out with one project in particular and consistently get some change happening each week. These projects will be coordinated by the the Ministry of the Interior and Parliament (staff) and will be led by Kathi and Earthcube. For more detailed information on the community projects and how they will be handled, please check out this announcement: Server Updates The decision and discussion behind moving to Sponge is still very theoretical is not remotely close to being feasible at this time. The major features/plugins we need don't quite line up just yet. Its something along the lines of this: Map - There is a solution available but it is NOT real time. That said, in-game signs on this other map can appear on the map which could be used for base marking Discord Link - There is a solution available much like the current. Permissions - There is a solution available much like the current. WorldGuard/Edit - There is currently no solution available to setup commands restriction by region Until these core requirements are met, we're going to stick with the battle-tested spigot. If you know of a plugin for sponge that's stable and offers command restriction by region, feel free to DM me on discord or PM on site. In Summary In case you missed it, this is a quick tl;dr of recent events: We recently had our map reset on October 1st, 2017 There is now a raffle every month for those who vote for our community We are starting community project builds that rotate every week A couple editions of Roleplay are on the way A survey happened to get your feedback and it was a huge success There is an election going on. Go vote!!! Come join us on site at http://everneth.com and in our Discord at https://discord.gg/0zdTSF2v9w0Ik1tt

    [DISCUSS] Weekly Projects

    This is the discussion thread paired with the Weekly Projects announcement. For those who would like to suggest a build to vote on, our top three candidates from the survey are the following: Modern City Megabuild PVP Arena Spawn Subway ==================== Discuss!

    Introducing Weekly Projects

    Introducing Public Works Projects Introduction This was first brought about a couple years ago to our former namesake community, VanEvo, under the name of campaigns. We facilitate a large mega project and get the community involved throughout several phases of the project to vote on what we build, designs to build, etc. This process was a long drawn out procedure and it eventually ran out of steam in the early phases of our first project. So to reattempt this type of idea, we will only focus on one project a week at a time and move on to the next one so that there's something fresh to work on. How will this work? Step 1 - Discovery We will be looking for projects from you, the community, to work on. The interior already has some projects in mind but we want to have a specific passion project that the community votes to work on. In order to do this, we ask that you suggest in a build in this discussion thread! Step 2 - Vote Once we take suggestions, we'll put up some of the popular ones up for a vote. If theres already a majority behind one particular suggestion, we'll skip the vote and put it right into the agenda. Step 3 - Schedule If you haven't come across it before, our website features a Calendar. We will schedule the projects from Sunday to Saturday in 1 week blocks and alternate between them. For example: Week 1 is a spleef arena project, Week 2 is a Roller Coaster Project, Week 3 is a subway system project, etc. If there is demand to work on any specific project, the Interior may increase the frequency we work on those projects in the schedule. Step 4 - Claim Once those projects are in place, the Interior will be tasked with choosing land for our builds. This is part of the Interior's special ability to claim land for Parliament / public use. Once claims are finalized, they will be documented on our Dynmap. Step 5 - Build! Help out with some designs on the test server, contribute materials for the build on main, or help in the construction of the project. There is a role for everyone! Step 6 - Get recognized Each week you participate in the project, you earn progress towards a medal. At project completion, you will be awarded the medal you built up to. With each project you will be working on a separate medal. You only need to contribute once a week to earn progress at this time. The tiers are as follows: Stone tier - 1 week participation Iron tier - 2 week participation Gold tier - 3 week participation Lapis tier - 4 week participation Emerald tier - 5 week participation Diamond tier - 6 week participation How do I log my contribution? Contact a member of the Interior or Parliament so that we can make a log of your contribution for each project and make note of your medal progress. All records are being tracked in a shared document among all teams. Whoever does your log entry will inform you of your medal status including the entry. Who is running this? This program is jointly managed by the Ministry of the Interior and Parliament. Management documents are shared among both teams. The program leaders are @EarthCube, Baron and Deputy Minister of the Interior and @Kaddaschatzi, Baroness and Member of the Interior. As such, they have authority over logging and project sites. For any suspicious activity/thefts, please contact a member of Parliament directly for assistance. For any other issues, any member of the Interior should be able to help. How to I keep track of this? Check the site and check it often! Each project is scheduled in the Calendar and will be shown in the upcoming events box on the side bar when you come to the site and login. We'll do what we can for convenience and quality of life purposes, but it is ultimately the community's responsibility to keep track using the website. It is also suggested that you join out discord for use of voice rooms or private calls. Schematica For anyone interested, you are allowed to use the schematica mod with the forge client. Please note that the print function is prohibited without prior approval from HC which is only in extreme cases. While this makes building less convenient, part if the challenge in building is doing everything by hand. So lets build as fairly as possible. Conclusion In closing I would like to thank Kathi and Earth for volunteering their time and effort into taking the lead in this program. I would take the time to make build suggestions in the discussion thread (linked below, needs link) and we'll inform you whats happening next after suggestions come in.

    I'm Resigning.

    I mean, we don't just pull rules out of thin air. About 95% of the rules are born out of reason and circumstance. In other words, they exist because something has happened prior to warrant them. So yeah, this is making some grand assumptions that can't be afforded to make. Even those with common sense will still ask questions that the rules seek to clarify.
