    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 this seat are as follows: Kaddaschatzi GreasyTroll4 Mentalistic You may have noticed that there are no incumbents included on the list. This is because the previous barons 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 June 30th (A week from Saturday), 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. If you need to change your vote for whatever reason, please ask a Staff member and we will do it for you, since IPS doesn't allow members to change votes on polls. Also, pick only one person to vote for PER POLL. This will help stop vote manipulation. Those who vote for the same person on both polls will forfeit their votes. The winners' term as Council members will begin on July 1st, 2018 and last until September 30th, 2018. 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 5 Nether Hub Rules Even though the season is only a few days old the Ministry of the Interior has been hard at work to get the layout of the hub done. This time the design was built in creative way before the start of Season 5 to allow us to set up the basic structure of the hub ASAP. We will finish the entire hub over the next few weeks. Until then the cobble squares around 0,0 are where the tunnel entrances of the finished hub will be so you can go ahead and start building your tunnels! Don't forget, you don't need to be a member of Interior to donate materials or lend a helping hand. We always appreciate the help. After all, this hub is the community's. Sneak peek of the Hub design! To make sure that everyone gets on well with each other in the nether it is very important to follow these rules: Tunnels can be decorated however you like as long as they are kept to a maximum of a 7x7 area, which includes the walls of your tunnel. You may also add an extra layer of blocks for ghast protection on each side. Keep your tunnel as straight as possible. If you need to turn, do so only once. If you absolutely need to go up or down, use a tunnel at the top or bottom of the hub, and only make the change in height at the end of the tunnel. If you run into an obstacle, go through it. If the obstacle is player-made (such as another tunnel), however, go over it if you are on the top floor or under it if you are on the bottom floor until you've cleared it, then go back down to your previous Y level to keep it as straight as possible. Remember, The ratio of blocks between the Overworld and the Nether is 8:1 (for every 1 block you move in the Nether, you move 8 blocks in the Overworld). Make sure your portal in the Overworld is linked perfectly (or as close to perfect as possible without moving the tunnel left or right) with its Nether counterpart by dividing the Overworld coordinates by 8. Try to keep the Y levels as close as possible if they desync. Claim your tunnels! Place a sign next to the tunnel stating where it goes and who it belongs to. Please be aware that the Ghast spawning algorithm (5x4x5 over a solid block) allows for Ghasts to spawn in these tunnels if care is not taken. Use a transparent center block (like glass) or some other method to prevent spawning (like slabs). We would also advise either building the walls or surrounding the tunnel with a blast-proof material, so it doesn't break from outside Ghasts. Usually, it is not necessary to match the Y levels when syncing portals. However, if you absolutely must go up or down to sync your portal, use the upper floor of the hub when going up, and use the lower level of the hub when going down. No diagonal tunnels! The hub is NOT designed for diagonal tunnels, and making tunnels this way will screw up a lot of other tunnels, as well as making tunnel designs overly-complicated. Do not cut off any other tunnels or possible future tunnels when building your tunnel. It is very important for everyone to follow these rules not only for the convenience of others, but also for the general ease of access and aesthetics of the hub. If there are any questions or problems regarding any of the rules, please contact FearlessPie, Kaddaschatzi or any other member of the Interior Ministry. Now, get building! Regards, The Ministry of the Interior

    Season 5 Spawn Layout and Rules With Season 5 approaching fast it is time to officially show next maps Spawn and to define some rules to make sure everyone has the best possible experience at Spawn. Below you can see a map of Spawn and its districts. Unlike previous maps we will not have a farming district this season as it was barely used before. Spawn Chunks: The Spawn Chunks are a 100x100 block area centered around the Spawn point which will be located in the water at 0,0. It is off-limits to any building not approved by parliament beforehand. Waterfront: The Waterfront is a district that is managed by the Ministry of the Interior and will be the area official builds like the Parliament building and stage are located in. This area is off-limits to any building that is not approved by the Ministry of the Interior. Gaming District: The Gaming District will be home to games and arenas built on the server and is managed by the Ministry of Competition. Before building in this district please get in touch with Rashe, KingNicku or any other member of the Competition Ministry to avoid any inconvenience with your build. Housing District: The Housing District is a district managed by the Ministry of the Interior. Spawn houses should be located in this area of the Spawn island. Shopping District: The Shopping District is also managed by the Interior Ministry and will serve as a hub for all trade on the server. Shops are going to be located here. Please make sure that all builds in the ocean within 100 blocks of the Spawn Island comply with the rules of the district they are closest to. To claim land in the Housing and Shopping District just mark the area with signs. Please be considerate of others while doing so and make sure to not encroach on your neighbours terrain too much. We will not limit the size houses and shops can be but again make sure it doesn't interfere with others, fits into the area and doesn't take up giant parts of the district. The Ministry of the Interior reserves the right to take down any build at spawn that is located in the wrong district, is overly aesthetically unpleasing or causes any other serious problems. If you have any questions about the districts please feel free to ask FearlessPie, Kaddaschatzi or any other member of the Interior Ministry. You can find a list of all current Competition and Interior members here. We wish all of you a great start to the new season! Regards, The Ministry of the Interior =============================================================================== BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE The Housing District is housing Season 5's first build competition!

    Arlin Zumrik was born in a small forest elf village, by the name of Ryvelin. Ryvelin was a very beautiful place, the chirps of birds and blooming flowers all filled the air with delight. Arlin grew up in a small home, with 3 siblings. Personal space was very hard to come by in the home, so Arlin spent most of his childhood with the wildlife outside. Arlin's mother and father were both hunters, providing a significant amount of food for the village and the family. By the time Arlin was 15, he had already learned how to skillfully hunt, and provide for the family as well. Arlin believed that he wanted to become a hunter himself, and live within the village until the day he would die. This soon changed however, when Arlin's mother was fatally shot during one of the routine hunting trips. Arlin knew that being killed as a hunter was a large possibility, thus, his dreams changed. He no longer knew what his life would contain. One day, as Arlin was sitting in a tree above his home, the smell of smoke traveled through the village. He jumped down and looked into the forest, licks of fire shot up through the canopy. Arlin started yelling for everybody to get out of the village, knowing that they did not have the resources to stop the raging flames. Arlin's family wasn't in their home, they were surely mourning at the cemetery on the outskirts of town; where the fire had already burned. The village was surrounded, and Arlin knew he had to run. So, using his wit, he ran up the tree once again, reaching a branch that was above the fire. Arlin leaped, praying that he could make it over. When Arlin touched the ground, he was joyful that he could not feel burns all over his body. Arlin made a run for it to the Northeast, where he had heard rumors of a rising kingdom. Arlin traveled along a path, hoping that it would lead to the faraway place. After several days, of walking, hunting, and resting, a tower bearing a red and gold flag appeared over the horizon. Arlin screamed with excitement, which was strange after all that he had just lost. He walked up to the gate, asking to speak to the King. The guard questioned him, then allowed him to speak to the King after hearing his story. Arlin went into the keep, and found King Icarus Forde already aware of his presence in the kingdom. Arlin began to speak, "H-Hi, sir. I've come from Ryvelin. I need a place to live and work. If you need anything done just tell me and I'll-" The King cut him off. "Listen, son. There is an area around here. It goes by the name of Mirkwood, recently renovated from a bandit's lair into the flourishing city it currently is." Icarus said. "Can I live there?" Arlin asked. "You may, on one condition: Mirkwood doesn't have any ties to Kingstone as of right now, I want you to change that. Put up a wall, flags, recruit soldiers. You can lead the village as a vassal of Kingstone. There is no leader of Mirkwood right now, and it seems no citizen wants to be the leader, this is your shot." Icarus explained. "I'll go there right now and tell the citizens I will be their leader. Thank you," Arlin told the king. When Arlin arrived in Mirkwood, the people were thrilled to see a new face in town. Arlin rounded the people up on a path, and spoke of his plans with the village. The people were joyous, finally having somebody to lead them through the dangers in the world. Arlin adopted his culture into the village, with elves being the skilled military archers for the settlement. To this day. Arlin still continues to build Mirkwood into the greatest it can be.

    Here is a link for more information about Kingstone. Looking to join Kingstone? Then this is the post for you, here are the official Kingstonian Entry Examinations*! Kingstonians are elite, outnumbered, and fiercely loyal. As such, the Kingstonian applicants for the Season Five Everneth Roleplay must be the very best. You're dedication, standards, and creativity will be tested if you wish to become a citizen of the Kingdom of Kingstone. Why join Kingstone over another faction? Well, Kingstone has a reputation of victory in Season 4, remaining undefeated against the unadulterated assault of Loden, the Desolate One, The Empire of Solis, and the Western Bandit Hordes. More impressive than this, however, is it's rich and immersive lore that has been crafted and refined for over six years. Kingstone prizes loyalty, pride, initiative, integrity, endurance, and determination. A Kingstonian is a bastion of strength and hard work. If all of this is attractive to you than you should continue reading below. Remind yourself that grammar, formatting, and effort all have the utmost importance to your chances of getting accepted into the kingdom. I also feel the need to say that many people have expressed a desire to join Kingstone and I wish to be outnumbered by enemies, so you will be competing with your fellow applicants. Kingstonians will begin to earn monthly allowance** as they rise to the ranks, as well as secret discord channels and war councils. There are six basic ranks of players who can call themselves Kingstonian. The King - The ruling monarch, King Icarus Forde at the time of writing. The Inner Circle - Through dedication and working closely alongside the King, these members have gained his deepest trust. The Kingsglaive - These legendary warriors protect the king with their lives and act out his will. The Vassal - Landowners who receive the King's protection and wealth for answering the call of war and fighting against the enemies of Kingstone. The Councilmen - Advisors to the above tiers, tasked with assisting their liege in construction and decision-making but are barred from fighting in war. The Laborer - Peasants paid per-job, serving as gatherers and builders supporting Kingstone's economy and infrastructure. Now, the road to becoming King is long and hard, and if you want to become King of Kingstone you'll be looking for me as a corpse, so I'll only be accepting Kingsglaive and below, as only going above and beyond the call of duty can earn you the title "Inner Circle". ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Joining the Kingsglaive - There are three basic requirements to becoming a part of the 'glaive of Kingstone. Unique Character Design/Roleplay Skill - The Kingsglaive are an integral reason Kingstone's military has seen such success, and their prevalence in the "Legend of Kingstone" require them to be interesting, unique, and immersive. A Character Profile would be infinitely helpful in your quest to becoming a member of the 'glaive. These players are held to a degree of roleplaying skill, this means your character must fit in the world of Kingstone, and the Everneth Universe at large, think low fantasy medieval, I'll be denying any TRON robots with nuke launchers. Finally, you must always respect roleplay etiquette. No meta-gaming (causing your character to act with information he/she shouldn't have but instead acting on information you have as a player), or controlling other characters (speaking for another player's character without permission or assuming your actions go without reaction, for example: avoid saying things like "I stab you in the throat, killing you instantly"). Loyalty to the Crown - Kingsglaive are defined by their loyalty. They obey the King's commands without hesitation and trust in his ability to lead the kingdom to further victory. As a result, I expect my Kingsglaive to respect Kingstone and defend it with your ((character's)) life. Its citizens and homes must be protected at all costs and an insult to Kingstone is an insult to you. Combat Proficiency - Kingsglaive are feared on the battlefield, and powered by Ike's magical weapons of war(Brisingr, Ax of Odin, etc) the earth must shudder under you as you walk. You won't be required to be Achilles or anything, but I expect the 'glaive to perform well in the field. All loyalty in the world is no replacement for raw talent and physical strength. Some vassals become Kingsglaive, but I have yet to have a Kingsglaive member that wasn't also a vassal. I am willing to work with you to help design your character and weapon as well as the circumstances in which your character meets the King and becomes a member of the 'glaive. Example Kingsglaive Application: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Becoming a Vassal - There are two basic requirements (along with joining the event battles) to becoming a vassal Building Skill/Progression - The main job of a vassal of Kingstone is to build and rule over a small part of the kingdom's territory. This means you must be willing to start and finish your build. Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was Kingstone, but I expect progress to be made, even if it's just fifteen minutes a day. Fiefs (areas of land given to vassals) must 'fit' in the Kingstone theme, this means doing your best to build something attractive, and believable. Medieval is a good theme to follow, but I'd also except high elf fantasy, oriental, etc. Just don't build any cars or spaceships, and don't build bigger than the capital itself. Character Uniqueness - Vassals also need to have their own characters to play as, but aren't expected to be as passionate about the lore and war as the Kingsglaive. However, like the Kingsglaive you would greatly benefit from a Character Profile. I am willing to work with you in designing your character as well as finding a purpose/theme for your build. Example Vassal Application: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Becoming a Councilmen - Compared to the above two applicants, looking to become a part of someone's council is relatively easy. A councilman's main job is to assist their liege in any way they can. This usually means help them build/design their fief, or advise them in matters of state and politics. The councilman can be a priceless tool to a vassal or 'glaive, and unlike a laborer, members of a Kingstonian Council receive a monthly allowance. In order to become someone's councilmen, all you must do is earn a member of Kingstone's trust and attention. Vassals are responsible for their council just as the King is responsible for his vassals, so it is important for a councilman to be trustworthy as well as hardworking, as a vassal with too many councilmen can begin to lose track of his people. Councilmen cannot participate in official roleplay battles, as that would unbalance the teams in Kingstone's favor. Example of a vassal or 'glaive member officially accepting a councilman: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Becoming a Laborer - The easiest rank to attain in Kingstone. The laborers are players who aren't so much interested in the roleplay or the wars, but rather making a paycheck or buying land in Kingstone. They import or gather materials for Kingstone in return for Kingstone Crowns** Kingstonian Laborers can also, of course, sell and work for other factions, a practice that would be very suspicious to any other rank. However, they do not receive a monthly allowance, nor are they allowed to participate in official roleplay battles, as that would unbalance the teams in Kingstone's favor. Example of a Laborer's Application: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Yes, I take it that seriously. The good news is though, that the harsher I am with the applicants, the more dedicated the people who actually end up joining are! **Kingstone Crowns (and a currently unnamed, unconfirmed silver coin) are the custom currency I will be minting in Season 5 of Everneth. Crowns can be used to buy real estate in the Capital, as well as steak/diamonds/fireworks. I'd ask that all applications come as replies to this thread. That said I wish you all good luck and encourage you to apply to any opposing or neutral roleplay factions if you aren't fortunate enough to make it in while we're recruiting.

    Hello everyone. A lot of you have probably been wondering where I've been for the last month and a half, and why I have not appeared on the server. Today, I wanted to dispel the rumors and talk about what's been going on in my life lately. Some time ago, we learned we had to move from our current house, and that the lease could not be extended to give us more time. This is all well and good, and I'm happy we're moving out of this dump finally, and the next house is a lot nicer, in a better neighborhood, and is a lot more calm and peaceful and quiet (with fresher air to boot). However, the problem is that because I also have to work and my brother has university studies, it's putting a lot of pressure on us to get packing and to pay the rent at the same time. This, coupled with longer shifts at work (due to me being one of the few people still available for longer shifts now that university/college has started again for most employees), already takes a lot of my time away from the server, and I need to do the longer shifts at work in order to cover for my brother. On top of that, I have to help take care of my mom, who is still heavily under the weather and sick. On top of that, I have been studying for my GED and my G1 drivers license, which takes even more time away from the server. These are both really important for me because of what I have planned for my future (which I will discuss in further detail below). For a long time, I thought that coding and computer programming were things I could do as a career, but I've learned that it just doesn't suit me. So, after a few more stumbles, I have finally found something that will suit me, as well as help me support both myself and my family. In about a month, my family will be moving to Ottawa, and after a few months of settling in (and finding another quick job to help pay for the rent), I will be sending in an application for the Canadian Armed Forces to serve in the Air Force as an aircraft technician. This position will not only discipline me and hone what skills I currently have, but will also teach my multiple trade skills I can use in future careers, should I ever leave the military. To apply, I have to first complete my GED, and I'm also aiming for my G1 (and, if possible, my G2) drivers license, in order to make my training easier. If my application is accepted, it means 3 months of basic training. During most of those three months, I will be completely cut off from the internet, mobile devices, computers, friends, and family (only on the weekends will a trainee be allowed to visit or call his family, and even then, not on the first month, unless it's an absolute emergency). Once my training is completed, I will be sent to a base somewhere in Ontario, where I will live for 4 years and complete my training for my field. All this to say, the future for me does not look good in regards to playing on the server. But despite this, I still want to go ahead with my plans. It brings good money, it gives me skills I desperately need for the future, and it gives me a purpose. The second reason for why I have not been active on the server is actually very simple: I don't want to get on. For me, Everneth has changed. It isn't the community I joined or the server I used to play on. When we first started, it was awesome and exciting and fun and new. Now, it's "same-old, same-old", and in my opinion the community has grown distant and too sarcastic/negative, preferring memes over actual fun. Yes, I know, "Everneth was built on memes" and all that, but it wasn't this excessive when we started. Most of the current members of Everneth I don't even know anymore. It's quite simply boring and draining for me now to get on. So, a while ago I had decided to not play anymore and instead focus on enjoying Minecraft the way I always had before, this time through a different outlet: singleplayer. No more resets. No more salt. No more memes. Just one big world for me to explore and build in and never have to worry about losing anything. And it worked. I can't recall a time when I've ever had this much fun playing the game since season 3. As for Everneth, while I don't want to play much on the server anymore, I will always be in the Discord and will always chat with folks here whenever I get a chance. I have made many friends here, and I don't want to lose them. Yes, even during my military service, I will always find time in the day to talk with you guys (when I can get a computer, that is, since I can't bring desktops with me, I'll have to buy another; which is actually good in the long run because the military gives discounts, plus I can get a brand new shiny Windows 10 with a good graphics card). In regards to being Staff, I want to announce my official, permanent retirement (until further notice, anyway), and I would ask to be excluded from getting any votes (even unofficial ones) during the elections. I have requested to the High Council to be excluded from the polls, so it won't do anyone any good to vote for me. I can't deal with the extra pressure of being Staff right now, and I probably won't ever be able to again down the road, until my life settles down again. I will complete this last term as Baron, but afterwards no more Staff positions for me, at least not for a while. In regards to all my stuff in my, ahem, "base", I will donate all the valuables to Interior, and as for everything else, it's all up for grabs (such as it is, anyway). I just wanted to let you all know about all this. However, I want to reassure everyone, this is NOT a "goodbye", this is a "so long". I'll still be around every so often, and who knows, I might even pop in to join in a UHC or game every so often, if I have the time and the computer to do it on. I will never forget the memories we've shared, nor will I ever forget the friends I've made on here. I would never trade the last few years for anything. I will always be a part of this community. However, until my application goes through, I will still be in the Discord server to talk with you guys. I am not leaving just yet. Today, however, marked my last time on the server, in order to prepare my place for anyone who wants to take some stuff. If anyone wants free stuff, my place is at 800, -1280. From the bottom of my heart...thank you all. When I joined this server, I was miserable and very discouraged at that point in my life, but you all brought back a lot of the joy I once had in my life, and I can never repay that in full. So, thank you. My final official order as a Baron: enjoy Everneth, and never stop enjoying it! You won't ever find another server quite like it! Click. *Save and Exit* GreasyTroll4 has left the game.

    Fishy Adjustments & 1.13.1 Hey folks! This weeks Tuesday Update brings some more changes that I felt needed a post in the News & Updates board. Adjustments to mob caps have been made and some plugins have been updated. Water mobs have had their cap increased by 112% Hostile mobs have had their cap decreased by 15% Prism will be deployed to Main. It is currently running on Test. Prism will run side by side with CoreProtect for 7 days. If successful, CoreProtect logging will end next Tuesday Update and Prism will be the primary logger. CoreProtect will be retired after an additional 3 weeks. With the 1.13.1 update we should see some performance improvements but it won't be like 1.12. Both Spigot and vanilla MC have a substantial amount of room for improvement going forward so dont expect this update to fix all the issues. Faceman Lord of the High Council, King of Everneth

    The Elytra Well will be Refilled Starting tonight the Tuesday Update will now include more network management scripts and routine housekeeping cleanups. More importantly The End will now be reset! Don't panic! The main end island will remain and the Dragon will not be reset according to the majority vote in the Discord. So what exactly happens in this update? You will continue to get a 30 minute, 15 minute, 5 minute, and 1 minute warning prior to the server shutdown at 11:59PM EST Save-all fires at 11:58PM Shutdown fires at 11:59PM Network cleanup fires at 12:00AM The End Reset runs and processes the dimension at 12:01AM The main island is copied out so that the End Farm, Exit Portal and island are preserved The existing gateways will be reset, though for now even though the block is gone you can still pearl through them safely (see pic below) All the old files are backed up and then deleted The seed of the end is changed Restart fires at 12:10AM That's right. The Tuesday Update will now take 10 MINUTES Be prepared for there to be chunk errors and possible glitches in world generation. Also make sure you are out of the end or at the very least on the main island or end farm. I cannot guarantee your safety with this in place. This HAS been tested but not under heavy load. And with that I hope you all enjoy the new and improved Tuesday update! Faceman Lord of the High Council, King of Everneth

    Hi, I was thinking (if I get accepted lol) Of building a house with a modern nature type theme. This is the inspiration of the design but I'd love to hear your guys input.

    Since it was brought up, let's talk about the JuGPack, soon to be known as the unofficial "Everneth Roleplay Pack"! 50% Conquest CITs (Custom Item Textures, basically a new texture that only appears when you name an item something specific, turns a diamond sword into a high-resolution spear, etc) 20% Vanilla Block Variations from Bdubs Texturepack, plus his iron recolor (Vanilla Block Variations are blocks of the same type having ever so slightly different textures to give it detail and depth) 30% CITs I made and implemented myself (Such as Brisingr, each of the Kingsglaive Weapons, and many many more.) The weapons and armor really add immersion to battles, and a connection with custom items, the VBVs help Minecraft appear more aesthetically pleasing while still remaining recognizable, and having an item custom-made for you in-game is a really nice feeling. I might release it publicly-ish to Evernethians with Optifine 1.13, but since it has a lot of Monsterfish_'s textures the last thing I would want to do is appear like I'm stealing his work and passing it off as my own. That said anyone who wants it is welcome to PM me @RashE#6503 on Discord assuming, of course, you will not distribute it to anyone else. Here are some screenshots. Conquest CITs: VBVs from Bdubs Some items I made myself. Armor CITs But the game looks ultimately the same.

It would be appreciated if we could get block donations such as redstone, ice, glass, etc. Thank you Oh, and for all those unaware, the Dragon Egg is claimed by Parliament and Interior for use in the official Everneth Museum. If anyone should pick up the egg after the battle, please give it to the nearest Staff member immediately so that it isn't lost. Regards, The Ministry of the Interior

    The current Chieftain of the primary viking tribe of Everneth, currently the man by the name of Ragnarock, was born in the seven hundred and fifty-second year of their calendar, on an unknown date. Ragnarok has spent his fifty-six years in life on this world as primarily that of war and plunder. He grew up in a small village, before leaving at the age of ten to find adventure in the world beyond. He soon found out, however, that adventure is not simply something one can go after. Soon on his journey, he encountered a group of bandits whilst travelling along the northern shores. He fought bravely, but was soon shot by a bowman before falling and fainting. Assumed dead, the bandits raided all they desired from his body, before leaving him there in his own sea of blood. By chance, he was discovered by a travelling merchant, who stopped to investigate the body before discovering that Ragnarok was still alive, although barely. He took him to the nearest village and found the local doctor. He patched Ragnarok’s wounds, leaving him to spend months healing in the village. He soon left the village to seek what he originally sought out, and thanked the villagers for their hospitality. He travelled for months, in the deepest trenches of the country to the most brutal shorelines in the darkest weathers. He soon came across a village in the middle of a raid by what Ragnarok knew to be vikings. Ragnarok looked the part of a viking more than a villager, and so he found their chieftain and demanded to join. He responded with a request, “Find the most valuable item in this village and you may do so.” He searched and searched, and soon found it, a kingly crown with no identity. He brought it to the chieftain, who was greatly pleased, allowed Ragnarok to join their ranks. After this, Ragnarok spent many years travelling the shorelines, plundering the countryside for both rags and riches. He rose up the ranks to eventually become the second-in-command to the current chieftain. He knew his destiny of becoming the next chieftain, and knew that something would happen that would signify this event. However, soon a sickness came down upon his crew, lasting for the better part of a year, eventually killing almost ninety percent of them. This plague lastly struck the chieftain, who handed Ragnarok his axe. “This axe has been mine for as long as my memory has lasted. It comes from the hands of Odin himself. It has no name, for I have never seen one so fit as to be worn upon an axe this gracious. Take it, wield it as Chieftain, and bring this crew back to its former glory.” with that, he let go of the axe, and took his last breath, giving Ragnarok what he had long expected, but now that he had it, he knew not what to do at all. Ragnarok led what remained of his ship across the shorelines, but he knew that they could not last much longer. He decided that they would need to settle down, somewhere in the countryside. They travelled away from the shoreline and into the country, soon founding a village next to a river in a small plains. They built fortifications and farms within, becoming self-sufficient for their first time. However, they did not know at the time that they had settled on already claimed lands, by a power much greater then they had ever seen. Around two years passed before an envoy showed up upon the Chieftain's gates. He asked for ‘the one known as Ragnarok’. Ragnarok was awoken, and he travelled down from his grand hall to meet the envoy. “Whom are you to arrive so suddenly at my front gate?” “I am an envoy from the Kingdom of Kingstone, sent by King Icarus Forde himself. You have settled your village in his lands, and you must meet with the King immediately.” Ragnarok had never found himself in such a position before. He knew that he must meet with the King, for he had never met such a power in all of his years prior. Ragnarok mounted his horse and went with the envoy to the capital of Kingstone, seeing the most mighty walls, and people and shops abound. Atop a hill he saw the grand castle of Kingstone, where he presumed the King was. He was proved correct, as the envoy took him to the castle and into a grand hall, being told to wait there. He waited for only a few minutes, before a man in the finest clothing and a most mighty crown appeared. “I am King Icarus Forde.” The King spoke with a deep booming voice, and upon feeling his very presence, Ragnarok knew why all his men followed him with such loyalty as he had seen. Ragnarok bowed to the King, who then spoke; “I have heard word that you have created a nearby settlement on lands under the jurisdiction of Kingstone, my jurisdiction.” Ragnarok, as mighty a warrior and leader he was in his own right, was almost trembling at Icarus. “I had no sign nor insight that these lands were under the control of such a fantastical Kingdom. We saw land fit for a settlement of my people, and we took it to lay upon for generations.” Ragnarok, as unfamiliar he was with the situation, still spoke as a great warrior would. “I see. It is understandable. Still, you are in my lands, and therefore you must submit to the King of them.” Ragnarok has expected worse upon first being summoned here, but now he felt a certain safety in the castle. “That is also understandable, King. But I must know, what do you entail by submission?” The King spoke as though he was no stranger to such situations. “You and your most able-bodied men must serve in Kingstone’s military as our most loyal soldiers, and your settlement as a vassal is expected to grow and produce as all our others do. That is all.” Ragnarok was relieved. He had expected to be forced to pay some kind of tribute, but was surprised by only being required to serve in Kingstone’s military. “And of course, the Crown will protect your settlement if it comes under any attack.” The King also stated. “I am grateful for the hospitality you have shown us thus far. We will continue living under the Crown as part of your Kingdom, and you will be most pleased with our services.” Ragnarok boldly proclaimed. “I’m glad to hear it!” The King said. “However, I simply have a couple of questions before you travel back. Firstly, what is the name of your settlement?” said the King. “We have taken to it Ravenscar. One of my men was attacked by a man who held a sword named Raven. He took a heavy blow from it, and wore the scar proudly. We took it and named the settlement as a testament to our hardiness.” “I see, a fine tale and a finer name. Secondly, I see my men have allowed you to keep your axe. What is the story behind it? Every great warrior has a tale about his weapon of choice.” “It belonged to the previous chieftain of our group. Upon his deathbed, he passed it unto me. He said that the axe came down from Odin himself. The axe itself holds grants great power to the warrior who is bold enough to wield it. I hold it now as Chieftain of Ravenscar, and I proclaim myself as one of the greatest Viking warriors alive.” boomed Ragnarok. The King did not speak for almost five minutes. “I have never heard such a tale about a weapon, and even more the warrior who wields it. You truly do strike me as one of the most mighty warriors I have come across. I sense that you will hold a great place among my military, and that you will serve us well in the years to come.” “Thank you, my King. You will not be disappointed, not by me or my people!” “I expect so! You are now free to go, for that is all I require of you as of now.” With those words, Ragnarok traveled back to Ravenscar with a new view upon the world around him. He knew of himself as a mighty warrior in his own right, and now he would need to prove himself worthy to the King himself. Whatever Ragnarok may face in the future, he knew he would be prepared for it. A new life awaited him, and he anticipated every moment that would seek him.

    Character Profiles Character Profiles are created to give the community a good idea of how a character acts and appears, sometimes revealing their backstory or motives in a concise, and intuitive way. This post not only has a template for your own profile but also contains a collection of all profiles to date. An important first step in designing your own Character Profile would be to make a "character card". This is simply an identification image with a picture and some basic visual information on it. Character cards are a staple of Character Profiles. Common pieces of information include: age, weight/height, eye/hair color, defining features (jaw shape, build, scars etc), voice, and the infamous "Smells like:" meme. Here is an example card: And here is a template for your own card! PM me @RashE#6503 on discord and I'll make a card for you if you'd rather. After that, it's just a matter of writing out some backstory and any other kinds of information you'd like to share about your character. Explaining which season the character is meant to be played in can also be helpful. Existing Character Profiles: (In ascending chronological order...) King Icarus Forde of Kingstone (RashE) (Season 4-5) Nicku Crestshade (Nicku Crestshade (Season 4-5) Jay Porter (20JPorter) (Season 4) Kordon Luis (TheSteelNinja14) (Season 4-5) Reaneal (DeadBoii/Studio/Reaneal) (Season 5) Rem (MikuChanProductions/___Rem___) (Season 4-5) Arlin Zumrik (Remy) (Season 4) King Jay Porter (20JPorter) (Season 5) Keshi Waawaash (boofsly) (Season 5) Bjorengahr Wildhammer (Chaibh) (Season 5) Ragnarok (DefendPopPunk) (Season 4) Agunua (TheDeadWeight) (Season 5) Polimus (Luvion) (Season 5) Rhextel Rayydark (Rexel) (Season 5) Lindsey (Studio 528) (Season 5) Samson Brink (abcfree4all) (Season 5) Richard Matheson (Faceman) (Season 5) Dorian Mercer (Beolyx) (Season 5) Micheal Frederick Nandus (Michel_Fred_N) (Season 5) Murdek Urmmin (DivineBovineYT) (Season 5) I'll attempt to keep this updated, but if I missed you or you have a question or comment, PM me on discord or here on the forums.

    Season 4 Awards Traditionally we haven't seen monthly awards in several months and while this season draws to a close it is again time to honor the accomplishments of the citizens of this community. These awards aim to recognise our citizens for their hard work, service to the community and exceptional achievements in building, redstoning and PvP.

Purple Heart of Dedication: Awarded to players who go the extra mile in helping new players transition into our community. Outstanding Build Medal: For completing a truly exceptional project or build on the server. Virtuous Medal: For significant contributions to public works and projects.

Order of Everneth Medal: This medal is awarded to members inducted into the Order. This award is the hardest to achieve and is Everneth's highest honor. Members of the order are knighted and respectable members of our community.

    Kingstone's Royal Study was dim. The chatter in the castle had started to die down after dinner had finished, and soon all Ike could hear was the whispering of the wind. The room was round, a massive rosewood desk was cluttered with papers and books. A glass inkwell reflected the dancing light of the candle lighting the king's workstation. Bookshelves lined the walls, grimoires and records held the secrets of Everneth, Vennterria, and Calpheon's histories. A massive painting behind him depicted the western gate of the city he built. He was seated in a massive spruce armchair, its padding was cotton, bound by a dark red leather. Two equally as comfortable twin maple chairs sat vacant before the desk. Closing the day's records, his attempt at a sip of brew was interrupted by a sound at the door... (( This is the first "chapter" of a series attempting to give the community an opportunity to engage in a public roleplay instance. Feel free to respond to this post, but remember to be "in-character", this means no meta-gaming (acting with information you as a player has that your character shouldn't) or "anomaly characters" (this is Everneth's Roleplay, I shouldn't be talking to a cybernetic mickey mouse). Also, attempt not to interrupt unless it's urgent, or if the conversation has died (wait for Icarus to be alone before having your character enter the stage). Finally, our conversations will benefit from a character profile, which will give me a better idea of how your character appears and acts. ))

    Icarus would deal with the elf later, the sand dripping arms and skull had one thing correct. For now, the mage was broken. The Wheat Gate's parasite remained, however, and now it was time to dance. Forcing a malicious smile, Icarus spoke quietly. "I choose 'perish'. You forfeited my ability to stay neutral the second you invaded Kingstone." Quieter still, he whispered to Kordon in an attempt to keep the enemy unaware. "Kordon, make your way 'round to the Noble Gate and demand a sentry's broadsword. Climb the battlements and wait on a Wheat Gate tower. On my mark, you are to plunge deep into the Lich's skull from above. Shade, keep Rem safe and retreat down to the port." The shade's eyebrows furrowed and as she opened her mouth Ike finished: "That's an order." Glancing back at the Lich and then at Ike again, she grabbed Rem's hand and led her away from the gate, furious. With luck, he wouldn't need the curse but Kordon was right, the single shot boomstick was a liability and low caliber at that. Inhaling deeply, Ike charged into the fray. Mid-step his back foot was caught and he fell flat on his chest. Rolling, he saw the dry skeletal hand that had grabbed him. As he swung Brisingr at its wrist, a new skeletal warrior made his way out from under the still flowing sand. Without the curse's boost to his reaction time, he was too slow to parry the blow against his neck as Brisingr was still between his legs. He braced, but instead of the sound of steel against throat, he heard a woosh and a metallic twang. The sound shook him and Icarus rolled out of the grasp on his foot. Standing up, a swing from Brisingr shattered a third undead warrior and Ike turned his vision to the source of his savior. Agista Rustero, daughter of the Empress, was catching her scythe as it spun back to her. Barefoot and in loose black clothing Ike realized she had just been sleeping. "For someone who hates me, you save my life a LOT," the King teased. Smiling, she turned into smoke and then appeared by his side, "Somebody had to. And I AM your 'glaive." The sound of shambling corpses and rushing sand caught their attention once more. "A fucking Nec, it had to be a Nec, didn't it Murphy?" Ike cursed. But this one was far stronger than Ulthur, and ever so slightly bigger. "With me," he commanded. Agista smiled and vanished again. Now careful of the sand, Ike swung from above, smashing the ribcage of the nearest enemy minion. Its spine had caught Brisingr however and without hesitation, the king had cleaved through it and two of its skeletons comrades in one mighty cleave. Agista had appeared behind a column of the undead and halved them all. As her scythe was still swinging, her free hand cast purple flames that sent several more back to whence they came. The fight was on and despite their number, Kingstone's enemies were slow and fragile. Foe after skeletal foe fell, shattered, and broke. The two of them were quickly making headway towards their malformed master.

    Hello, this is Kordon. I was walking through the Wizards Tower the other day and I happened to stumble upon a book that looked strange and different from the rest. So I picked it up and it was written in a language I have not see yet. Now, mind you I've seen many languages but this was foreign to my understanding. It was written in symbols that look hard to write in as well. All of the books have the common number known by most races, the highest number I have so far is number 8. I will put the books back for now, from what I have seen so far is that there's 1 book per settlement within Kingstone. I will be translating book #3 If you would like to lend your hand in helping me translate, please sign your name on the extra paper i have pasted below:

    We don't need a translator anymore. Fredrick of the Wizards' Tower went ahead and translated it for us, Something about how depressed and psychotic Rem is and how the character their skin is based off's partner is the only one who can "bring [them] from darkness".

    Whats your favorite thing you've seen of 1.13 so far? For me, it would have to be the beautiful colors of the ocean floor!

    I personally listen to basically everything... I cant think of a song from a genre that i don't like. My personal favourite artist currently is Change the Rapper. HBU?

    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!

    Bit of a necro, but just wanted to chime in and say that I think Canada is excellent. I'm obviously pretty biased but I feel very blessed to live here and think that if we continue pushing things in the direction of socialism we will be on the right track to becoming one of the best countries in the world overall in the future.
