  1. ...except when it does! Having considered your feedback from the last war and reviewing how it was conducted on both the player and staff sides, we’re making a number of changes with regard to how wars work. The newest version of the war rules is live in the War Rules forum, and wars (even though they were technically unfrozen a few weeks after they were frozen initially) are officially open again and will proceed under the new ruleset. Aside from a handful of wording changes and minor adjustments, major additions include: Base War Cost: Given the state of the in-game economy and adjustments to war paths, base costs have been reintroduced Mechanisms of War: Better defined build rules for attackers and defenders This section will also be updated with more pictures once we get examples together Tile Victory Conditions: Better definitions which are specifically tied to tile types Lair Warclaims: While allowed before, more specific rules have been defined with the help of @squakhawk A huge thank you to @ferdaboy and @Llir for their efforts in fielding feedback and getting all this put together and organized, @HogoBojo for lending the server for screenshots, and many more for their feedback and discussion. Addressing some concerns on the staff side, it’s been the case in the past that a handful of mods volunteer as war mods and are trained on how to put wars together. Moving forward, all mods are going to be trained to do so in an effort to a) cut down on a lot of that waiting/review period prior to warclaim starts, b) make more mods available to answer questions and help folks out as needed, and c) allow for involved mods to be fully excused from those duties with additional, uninvolved manpower. As is the case in big overhauls like this though, most everyone’s going to take a minute to learn how things work and there’s always the chance something could be done better. It’s your feedback that helps us determine where changes need to be made so we can provide the most fair experience for all as we can. Keep an eye out for our Your View’s and join Mod Discord if you want to give continual input on our projects. Up Next: Petty Theft, Heists, and Boats Build Standards, Doors, and Redstone Doors

    Mechanisms of War

    Building Participants must submit their fortifications 48 hours before the warclaim for approval by the overseeing Moderator, or they run the risk of having ALL modifications removed/denied. Sieges - Defenders: Once war initiates, defenders may only construct meager and temporary fortifications. The eligibility of these fortifications are subject to the overseeing Moderator’s approval. New mechanical gates/doors or any other Craftbook signs are not permitted, with the exception of those leading to new siege weapon platforms. Inappropriate Defenses Sieges - Attackers: Attackers may build siege camps and other minor temporary fortifications for their siege weaponry. The forts must be appropriate for the setting (subject to Moderator interpretation) and cannot be excessive in their size. (No pancake layering). Attackers are not permitted gates/doors or any other Craftbook signs within their siege camps. Inappropriate Siege Camps Field Battle Fortifications: Defenders may build meager fortifications such as a rally camp that is limited to walls. Defenders are not permitted gates/doors or any other Craftbook signs within their camps. Attackers may not construct anything. Siege Equipment You may craft siege equipment and ammo through an in-game voucher, and bring it to the war server. Siege equipment is destroyed upon the conclusion of battle and will be collected by the overseeing moderator, but unused ammo will be returned to the respective nations.

    Lairs

    Lairs on a realm-owned tile may be warclaimed by the owning realm. This warclaim is free of cost for the realm/lair. Allies are permitted for both sides, and pay standard base/travel costs. If the realm wins, they may annex, pillage, or raze the lair region. If the lair wins, the tile is returned to the monks and the lair is protected for two months from any warclaim. The lair may avoid a warclaim by moving (if approved) using ST-Lair Relocation within 48 hours of the warclaim post, otherwise the warclaim proceeds as scheduled. The Administration may delay or veto warclaims on lairs. Note: This is generally only used in special circumstances when a lair is being used for an eventline.
  4. thank god its you now

  5. I'm thankful to the admins for the opportunity and looking forward to continuing to work with a great team of mods!
  6. Ser Alwyn frowned and shook his head as he read through the missive before tossing it into the fireplace. He'd stare out the window of the keep, commenting to himself as he stewed in his discontent. "If they weren't our enemies before, surely they are now. Bannin' tattoos... Banishin' children... I'm so pleased th' Curia's focusin' on th' real issues." "GOD, I wish Father Toni was still with us."
  7. Hi everyone! We’ve had Limited Creative (LC) for a while now as our current happy middle ground between pastes and doing it by hand, but we’ve not been entirely clear about what it is, how it works, or much else about it unless you’ve made a modreq. Thus, we’ve put together this little guide so you can stop asking questions and start building! Layman’s Guide to Limited Creative Disclaimer: It Just Works What is Limited Creative? Limited Creative, or LC, is the server’s way of easing the average player’s ability to build through a localized version of at-cost creative mode. LC acts just like default creative mode with the exception of the ability to drop things, access inventories/entities, or place certain blocks such as ores. How does it work? Using a combination of worldguard and fancy tech-folk magic, a region is set up in your name with you set as a Region Owner. Inside the region, you’ll automatically be given LC, a high fashion green outfit indicating you’re in LC, and you can start to build. As a Region Owner, you’ll also be able to add others to the region and they’ll be able to build in LC as well with /rg addmember region_name mc_name. (Ex. /rg addmember lc_laymans_guide SimplySeo) What does it cost? Limited Creative is an at-cost alternative to building in vanilla that exchanges mina for placed blocks while you build. Natural blocks such as cobblestone or dirt are free to place while others will cost 0.1 mina per block. After placing a block, you can break it again to get your 0.1 mina back too. As a part of the region, the lc-balance on /rg info region_name will reflect how much is left for you to build with. (Ex. /rg info lc_laymans_guide) Free Blocks List How do I get set up? Figure out where you want the region. Keep in mind that LC regions can’t overlap with one another. After deciding where you want an LC region, get permission from one of that area’s Region Owners and get your mina together. /modreq at the location you want the region and be ready to send the moderator who answers a screenshot of the permission in discord. When the moderator answers your modreq, they’ll ask for the RO permission, mina, and area you want it set up in. Regions can be hard to set up in a crowded city, so please be patient with us as we get you set up. Build away! While you’re building… Keep in mind the bounds of the region you’ve had set up for you. If you accidentally fly out of the region while 200 blocks in the air, you will drop out of LC and plummet to the earth. Balance running low? /lc pay will bring up prompts that ask for the region you want to pay into and the amount you want to add. If lc_region_name doesn’t work, try just region_name or region name. (Ex. lc_laymans_guide > laymans_guide > laymans guide) LC regions aren’t meant to be long-term projects that take weeks to do, so the default expiry date for regions is 7 days after which you’ll no longer be able to build in the region. This can be adjusted during the setup process, within reason, according to the moderator who sets it up with you. Expiry dates can’t be extended, so endeavor to have your build finished by the given date or it’ll have to be remade. Want to give more detail to your build? /lc stick while in LC will give you a debug stick to use in the region. You may also use client side building mods, such as Litematica and Litematica Printer, to help out. I’m finished building. Now What? When you’re finished building, /lc finish at the location of the region to close it and have the remaining funds returned to your persona. Have fun building! If you’ve read this far, you’re hopefully ready to get your LC region going and get building with ease! If you run into any issues while building or want some more information, /modreq and a moderator will be with you when they can. Special thanks to @SimplySeo for being my test dummy, @teeylin & @TimberBuff for helping me find the free blocks in our sea of documents, and @annabanana1014 for making sure I didn’t miss anything.

  10. THE ALKAYABAN COMPANY CHARTER Issued the 7th of the Amber Cold, in the Year 165 of the Second Age ESTABLISHED BY THE ROYAL BANK OF NÚMENDIL In pursuit of ever greater and continuing prosperity of the Kingdom, the Royal Bank of Númendil does hereby grant this letter of certification to the Alkayaban Company, hereafter referred to as ‘the Guild’, under the stewardship of the Honorable Mazra et-Sûhalar. Herein are dictated those rights to be afforded to the Guild and its members, as well as its duties and responsibilities to the Crown. I. The Guild shall be hereafter granted access to those industries and facilities operated by the Beneficiary, for the purposes of fulfilling its obligations. II.

Signed, Ser Alwyn II of the House Glennmaer, Royal Castellan of the White Court of the Númenaranyë, Lord of Formindon, Templar of the Archangel Michael, and Knight of the Realm Mazra et-Sûhalar, Master of the Alkayaban Company
  11. The Castellan nodded as he read through the missive. "As it should be. Our enemies are driven out or else beaten. There's no honor in slaughterin' those who remain."
  12. Ser Alwyn finally realizes this wasn't just the ramblings of some visitors at the gate as one of the scribes hands him a copy of the missive. His thoughts drift to the idea of undoing his duty belt and patrolling the city for those responsible. "Hmm. . . We'll see."
  13. Bhudand simply nods upon hearing the news, his expression hidden behind his helmet as he slid the blank Dwed Corp Form F1 back into the filing cabinet.
