Everneth Spleef Tournament III
Bring a Friend | Teams of Two
Saturday, March 21st | 1 PM EST
Spleef is a minigame where players aim to destroy the floor underneath their opponents' feet in order to make them fall out of the arena. Naturally, the last man standing wins.
- Intentionally punching players is not allowed. Disqualification for breaking this rule is at the discretion of the Community Developer running the round.
- Since we've had issues with players trying to run away from their opponents in the past arena decay is now enabled from the start of the round.
- Contrary to the previous tournament we won't add up the time that you stay alive. So if both teammates fall off the platform before the opposing players do you are out!
- You can bring a friend too. Just sign your IGN and his/ hers so we know!
Team Spleef Gold - Awarded to the winners of the tournament.
Team Spleef Silver - Awarded to the runner-ups of the tournament.
Team Spleef Bronze - Awarded to the second runner-ups of the tournament.
Golden Shovel Medal - Awarded to the player with the most sinks.
Featherlight Boots - Awarded to the player with the least falls.
CLOSING AND SIGNUPS
Both teammates have to reply to this thread to have your team enter into the tournament!
To sign up for the third Spleef tournament, reply to this thread. If you do not have a teammate you may sign up solo. We will try to pair solo players with one another. However if there's too little players you will have to participate by yourself.
*If you sign up, please make sure to check Discord or the forums a day prior to the event as I will announce the details including the qualifying groups then.*
Thirteenth Passing of the Blades
It's been nearly a month since the purge, but we finally have a new full set of staff members! After the closest election in Everneth's history, we have finally decided that _Studio528_ and Cerium will fill our previously empty temporary Baron seats.
The ceremony is to be held on Saturday, February 8th at 12 PM EST at our temporary spawn stage. The stage is currently being built and will be located at 20, 170. During our ceremony, Beolyx and IzzyArcher will pass their blades to _Studio528_ and Cerium, and FearlessPie and Sybillian will pass their blades to Beolyx and Faug.
What is the Order of Everneth?
Our community is in constant expansion, so for those who do not know what the Order is; the Order was originally founded on August 30th, 2016 at the closure of Term 1 as a means of elevating the old "Distinguished Member Medal" to something more meaningful. You may have seen people in game with the Sir or Lady titles. This is the Order's rank shown. To give a quote from the old post:Quote
In order to become a member of the Order, one must go above and beyond expectations and truly dedicate themselves to this community. This honor will be difficult to obtain and must be so to maintain its integrity.
The intention is that this honor is difficult to get. Much like real life honors, going above and beyond is absolutely a minimum requirement before the Order is even considered to be given to someone. Most of those who have been inducted to the Order are past and present staff. It's no secret that its skewed this way, but Staff have been given an extra opportunity to serve this community and those who have been exceptional and representing what Everneth is meant to be have been awarded appropriately.
If you are aiming for the Order, we encourage you to aim high and don't give up. Keep in mind that you need to go beyond the lower precedence awards (King's Cross, Virtuous Medal, et al) and truly make your mark among the cornerstone of this community. This doesn't mean budding up with staff, and simply working silently away at your base. Get involved, engage with people, participate, and contribute in the best way you can.
As a final note, make sure to wish Studio and Cerium good luck for their next three months as our new Barons!
Glory to the Order!
Everneth Abba Caving Event
Saturday Feb 8th| 2pm EST
Place: Will be announced 30ish minutes before the event!
ORIGIN OF ABBA CAVING
Abba Caving is a winner-takes-all caving game within Minecraft that was originally made popular by the Mindcrack Minecraft community. The basic premise is that individuals or teams try to gather as many ressources as possible in a fixed time. Different ressources give different scores, and the player/team with the highest total score wins!
- All players must start and end at the same time!
- A Silk Touch pickaxe must be used by all participants!
- Each player has 20 minutes to gather as many ores as possible!
- Players may dig in any direction from the start point, and may explore any ore caves, etc.
- Strip Mining is dissallowed unless there is a point in the game where we run out of caves. In that case there will be an announcement lifting this rule.
- PVP is NOT allowed!
*Note: If you don't have a Silk Touch pickaxe, you'll be provided one for the event!*
Points are awarded per ore block in each players inventory at the end of the allotted time, based on the following table:
(ORES) (DUNGEON LOOT)
Emeralds- 6 points Diamond, Music disc., Nametag, Saddle- 2 points
Diamonds- 5 points Armor- 2 points
Gold- 3 points Golden apple- 4 points
Lapis Lazuli- 3 points Notch Apple- 20 points
Iron- 1 point

Evernethian Council Election
Nominations for the elected Council members have closed - we have our finalists, and hence, we begin the final vote! Our finalists for the two seats are as follows:
You may have noticed that there are no incumbents included on the list. This is because the would be incumbents were removed from office during the purge, thus there are only 3 candidates.
Our anonymous polls will be open until 11:59 PM EST on January 31st, at which point votes will no longer be able to be cast. Once the polls close, all the votes will be tallied together from both polls, and the two top-voted candidates will win the two open seats. Until then, however, you are free to cast your votes as you please.
Remember, those who vote for the same candidate on both polls will forfeit their votes.
The winners' term as Council members will begin on February 1st, 2020 and last until April 30th, 2020.
As the purpose of these elections are to give Evernethian Citizens a voice in the management of the server, we strongly encourage each and every one of you to cast your votes and let your voice be heard.
Thank you for voting and good luck to all of our candidates!

Season 6 End Dragon Fight
Saturday, January 25th | 1pm EST
Meeting place: End Portal in the Overworld (Coordinates: x -1450/ z 800)
Nether Portal Location: Middle Floor, South West Corner
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a dragon and it's actually quite dangerous if you come unprepared. So ready your armor and brew some potions because we are gonna hunt us a dragon.
The Dragon Fight will be hosted on Saturday, January 25th at 1pm EST. We will meet up at the End Portal in the overworld. The office of Community Development has set up a tunnel leading to it so you don't have to trek across 2000 blocks of overworld terrain. A member of Parliament will open up the End portal and only then may you enter. Please try to be on time because we will not be waiting for anyone.
Once the dragon has been slain the End will be open for raiding so bring anything you will need to get to the outer End islands and find some End Cities.
Good luck and try not to get yeeted into the great space abyss!
The Office of Community Development will try to get an End farm going as fast as possible. As of right now we don't have any plans for designs so if you'd like to get involved and leave a mark on this season feel free to apply for Community Development any time by clicking HERE.
As always the Dragon Egg is claimed by Parliament to make sure it doesn't get lost. If you should pick it up after the fight make sure to give it to the nearest staff member immediately.
