  1. [!] These fliers would be pinned up all over most cities [!] Fellow descendants! Bandits plague our roads and cities. If there were a way to identify and avoid these bandits, we may be able to thwart their evil deeds. It is for this reason that I am starting an incentive program. Below this flier people who have been bandited or have seen someone else should post a description of the bandits. For the heads of any of the bandits listed below, I will pay the slayer 100 mina kill. [[You don’t necessarily have to have their head, I just need screenies to make sure it is real and what-a-naught]]. When you have killed one, send myself a bird and we can meet post haste. Posting Format Rp Name: Username: Description [[Skin]]: Any other important details: Let us stop these tragedies together, the evil in the world can not stand to our collective will of good! [!] The bottom of the post would have a signature in heavy blue ink reading ‘Aladar Bell’. [!]
  2. Don’t you all just love that after about 12 pm EST the server turns into Mad Max? Roving bandits just roam the roads and cities, robbing and killing everyone they see. There are no ooc regulations on who can do Bandit rp so people who play their characters as saints normally, can just put on a new skin, change their names, and go a lootin’. Even during the middle of the day, there are groups that just kill and rob without any rhyme or reason besides who has the best loot on them. This was my rant, feel free to ignore me.

      This is what we get for not doing GMT events. All the GMT players have nothing to do and just bandit instead of roleplay because they cannot get pixels roleplaying in non-events.

  3. The History So, for a long time, IRL trade was done through barter. In other words, if person A has leather and needs iron, and Person B has iron and needs leather they would trade. They would come to an agreement, and decide that for every three leather that person A gives, person B will give one iron. But this is a one time deal. The next time that persons’ A and B want to trade, they may decide that for every one iron person B gives, person A must give five leather. Eventually, people decided that this was a lot of work, so they made a currency. This currency was something like gold coins (We will get back to this later). So if iron was worth 3 gold coins, and leather is worth 1 gold coin, the people involved in the trade don’t both have to have something that the other person wants. They just have to have the money that is equivalent to the product they are buying. So with this type of currency, person A can buy iron from person B, without having leather to give in return. After this, countries started to run out of gold, so they switched to paper currency, like dollars. These paper currencies were backed with a valuable resource, like gold. This meant that, theoretically, anyone could go to the federal gold reserve (at least in America, I don’t know how they do it in other places) and trade their money for the gold that the paper note was worth. This new system meant that no one has to carry around heavy, expensive, gold. The con of this system is that you can only have as much paper money as you had gold. Ever so slowly, every country stopped backing their currency with something valuable. This made currencies worth nothing except when everyone agrees it is worth something. This is the current system in the world today. If everyone stopped accepting dollars in exchange for goods, dollars would just be pieces of fancy green paper. The big issue with a free-standing currency is inflation. The way that I like to explain inflation is this: Every country has a set amount of wealth. This wealth can be increased or decreased with trade from other countries. Every note of free-standing paper money represents a part of its’ country’s wealth. So if, for example, a country printed 10,000 notes, each equalling 1 (like one dollar bills), each note would equal 0.01% (100/10,000) of that countries total wealth. So the more notes that are printed, the less that each one is worth. If a piece of bread is worth 0.1% of the country’s total wealth (that is crazy high, this is just an example), and each note is worth 0.01%, then each piece of bread costs ten notes. But, if each note is worth 0.00001%, then each piece of bread would cost ten THOUSAND notes. This point is where all of my rambling becomes relevant to LOTC (I will explain this later). Value At the very root of trade is supply and demand. If there is more of a resource than people want, the price goes down. If people want more of a resource than there is, the price goes up. In other words, if there are 3000 crafting tables in a Minecraft world, and everyone only needs one crafting table, people won’t want to pay very much for one, because they are everywhere. But if there are 10 diamond blocks in the world, and everyone wants all 10, then everyone will pay a lot for them, because they are so rare. This concept is illustrated in the pretty graph below. When something is rare, it has an innate value. This means that it is worth something, just because not everyone has it. When someone finds a vast amount of a previously rare resource, the innate value of that resource goes way down. This is why monopolies work, they basically say that even though there is a lot of a resource, only a little bit is available to the public. One thing that happens IRL and in LOTC is the creation of a monopoly. This means that one person has complete control of a good or service. IRL there are laws to prevent this from happening, but in LOTC there is nothing like that. So basically if someone went to every city, and every market stall and bought every single piece of iron, they would have a monopoly. Then they could sell it for a much higher price because they are the only person who has it. In LOTC So, after reading this very long, and seemingly pointless post, you may be wondering: What does this have to do with LOTC? Well, this is a very important part of the server. Since mina are a free-standing currency (like we have IRL currently), they are subject to inflation. This is such a big issue because everyone can get ‘free’ minas every day just by voting. That basically means that, at least from an rp perspective, money is just being created, without the overall wealth of LOTC changing. Another big issue with LOTC’s current economy is that there is really no limit to the supply of most items. Since nexus was removed (For all of its flaws, nexus did regulate the economy. So let's give thanks to it for its good deeds.) everyone can make every item. The only items that truly don’t have an endless supply are event items. That means that these are the only items with true innate value in LOTC. The next question that will be asked is: Can this be fixed?. Because, let's face it, half of the server will just yell at the mods ‘fix the economy!’ with no concept of what that entails. The short answer is yes. The long answer is that it would take a massive revamping of almost the entire server. Voting rewards would have to be deeply changed, and a nexus replacement would have to be put into the server to limit supply. So, it really could never, realistically happen. If anyone has flaws to point out or anything that I left out, feel free to tell me. I make mistakes, somewhat frequently.

  6. Please answer the following questions to help us better track down the cause of a particular bug: **MC Names of all involved** Everyone trying to join the LOTC discord **Description** No one can get into the LOTC discord server because the /verify command won’t work. **Date of occurrence** Since the map change or before **In game specifications** I have tried on both personas, as have many other people. **Steps to Reproduce** 1. Log into LOTC 2. Type /verify **Expected Behavior** It should give a code to enter into the LOTC discord server. **Actual Behavior** A message appears that the command isn't recognized. **Additional Information** This has been a problem for some time, and no one has fixed it yet. **Error Message** “This command isn't recognized” (Or something very similar)
