    Old Dunshire Forest, a poem by Bom Tombadil

    Ernie enjoys the poem, and makes several copies to spread around the city of Belvitz since they are such great fans of the Old Dunshire Forest.

    Poor Leadership

    You seem to all treat being a forum mod (a glorified hall monitor) as your own little personal club. You don't even need to talk to other forum mods, I know I didn't when I was a forum mod, you just need to get on with the job you promised to do. That said, the only interaction with Chorale that I've had is when he and other forum mods go around Halfling RP threads and delete half of the posts inside them for no good reason. Seems like a bit of an idiot to me. Alongside the fact that he collects titles like pokemon cards and displays a big list of them under his profile must alert you to the type of person he is.
  3. What kind of ban are you appealing? Server Minecraft Usernames Dalek348 Ban Reason Breaking a cobble block Players Involved Alpha And Omega By your own understanding, why are you banned? Alpha and Omega reported someone griefing into his house. After that, he saw a block missing in the perimeter wall of his compound - believing that I had in some way been connected to the grief. I had actually made a small hole 20 days before in order to get out of his compound (easily accessed by jumping over trees) rather than to get into it, which is what was first believed. After I got banned Llir also used tools to show that over time (a duration of approx. 2 months) 3-4 other cobble blocks had been broken in the same area while I had been checking on his house to investigate any griefing done to his stuff while he was away from the server. Why should you be pardoned? I apologised to Alpha and Omega for the mix up. Everyone who lives in the old dunshire forest knows that I look out for them and their builds and always check for griefing and report it as soon as I find it. That is why I was at his house in the first place. There is no malice or intent to do any harm, I forgot to replace the blocks while on a regular anti-grief patrol and for that I am sorry What will you do to prevent similar circumstances that led to your ban? Replace any block if I need to break it Discuss why you believe that following the Community Guidelines is important to promote a healthy community. I have played this server for 7 years, and have seen so many people come and go in the community. When people leave, it's so often because the guidelines of the community have broken down and they can't take the stress and strain of it anymore. But looking out for others in the community is the heart of what I do, and why I log into the server really. Whether it's looking out for the Halflings, or for my neighbours in the freebuild area. I encourage everyone to do exactly what I do, encouraging people to be relaxed and to be proactive in helping out your friends and your neighbours - even if they are a complete stranger.

    If You Stand for Nothing, then What Will You Fall For?

    Countessem banned me when he found 1 block missing and found I broke it 20 days ago, this is a fact, I have his messages screenshotted on discord. Only now do you desperately root around to try and find more ‘evidence’. When you say I griefed into the freebuild, you are the liar. I broke a block to get out while protecting my neighbours build from grief even though he was a complete stranger to me. But of course you’re allowed to make false claims and call people liars, because your name is coloured in orange. Just as Jacko is allowed to half-destroy an entire ent village because he is a glorified hall monitor. TarreBear is allowed to break rules attempting to world edit away builds do he can expand his town. Youngie is allowed to break raid rules and make up his own rules to try and get out of it because his name was blue. Drfate and Insecurity_ are allowed to grief racial capitals because of being event team and trial GM. I have privately reported all those people to admins with full evidence, and nothing gets done. I now know I should have gone public with it, because people like them know no shame until they have to publicly face up to things and take responsibility. It’s one rule for us and one rule for you. GMs are not the best we have to offer. If they were, then very few of you would have your precious titles and coloured names. Being a GM only means you are the most motivated to covet and accumulate pixel power and dominate complete strangers who would otherwise most likely trample all over you in real life. But you people take it as your right to be completely infallible and just do as you please, then look down your nose and vilify the people who are wise to your pathetic tricks.

    If You Stand for Nothing, then What Will You Fall For?

    I did not grief my way into a freebuild. The owner had been offline for months and was being threatened with eviction by GMs and griefed by players. Despite being a complete stranger to me, I kept going to his build to make sure people weren’t destroying it. I caught 1 or 2 grief attempts there, and the fact it didn’t get world edited away months ago is because I vouched for him even though I didn’t know him. I admit I broke a block to get out and return to my base because I didn’t want to bother doing the jump out, but I forgot to replace the block on an abandoned wall at an abandoned house - hardly the crime of the century. I’ve said it before, banning me for that is like giving a parking ticket to an ambulance trying to save a life. Completely unnecessary But I am glad you posted here, because how could I forget the occasion when you took it upon yourself to destroy a new player's entire burrow while he was offline? Purely so you could have a laugh and troll us, pretending to be a relative of Iblees and a pig, called 'Pigblees' I reported you to Fireheart and after everyone dodging responsibility, I was told it was a 'misunderstanding' and then everyone all at once started a co-ordinated ignoring of all my messages. Sounds like justice and fairness, right? Because of course it's only a game, so why should anything be fair. If your name is written in a colour, you can just about do as you please

    That screenshot is faked and you know it. That farm has been planted after I was banned. Returning to the scene to smash a few blocks and say it was me is low. Countessem found 1 block destroyed and banned me for it. Only after the event do sad individuals like you dig around to falsify evidence and twist the truth - and yet you have no shame doing it publicly I did hop the fence, the place was covered in trees when I was there. I broke a block to get OUT of the build

    If You Stand for Nothing, then What Will You Fall For?

    And I am banned for a week for breaking 1 cobblestone and forgetting to replace it. I caught @Jacko severely griefing my area, smashing several blocks of my house, filling my house with leaf blocks, spamming trees everywhere, blocking every single entrance of every building with trees - but nothing was done to him and I spent 3 hours cleaning it up. Then I caught @TarreBear trying to break eviction rules, sneakily trying to give me only 1 week eviction warning rather than the 2. He did this because he wanted to world edit my ent village away, so that he could take my land from me and expand Belvitz. I also discovered that Jacko's massive grief and TarreBear's attempted illegal eviction were more than likely connected, and they planned it together. Again, nothing happened to them. This is an immature server where underdeveloped teenagers project their real-life insecurities into the game, which ends up with them coveting and accumulating titles and authority, and then using it to lord over innocent people who are just here to play a game and have fun. Then when their real-life insecurities are suddenly brought back into focus - a rude word directed towards them, or someone forcefully making a statement - they lash out aggressively and petulantly in order to protect the image of themselves they have desperate cultivated.
  9. What kind of ban are you appealing? Server Minecraft Usernames Dalek348 Ban Reason Breaking 1 cobble block Players Involved Alpha And Omega By your own understanding, why are you banned? AIpha_And_Omega came back from a long break away from the server and found his freebuild house griefed into by someone (not me). After that they found 1 block missing in his outer cobble wall, and log block showed me breaking it 20 days ago. Essentially, my fingerprint was found at the scene of someone else's crime. But me breaking one cobble block and forgetting to replace it meant I got banned for 1 week nearly a month after I broke it. Why should you be pardoned? There was no malice at all but the block was accidentally broken and not replaced while in the midst of doing a good deed. Since it is located in the giant ent forest I planted, I like to check up on everyone who lives there and ensure they are all OK, which is what I was doing when I forgot to replace the block. I messaged him on the forums and apologised for the confusion and we both acknowledged the mix up. I am constantly on the lookout for griefing, that is why I was around AIpha's build in the first place. People see how beautiful our ent forest is and that puts a target on our backs. I discover and report griefiing every week, I would never dream of doing it myself. 'Griefing' implies intent and malice - I simply forgot to replace 1 block while being a good person and looking out for my neighbours What will you do to prevent similar circumstances that led to your ban? I won't break a block that doesn't belong to me, and if I do break 1 cobble block again I will replace it immediately.

    Gone, but not forgotten (Madeline Applefoot PK post)

    Having heard of the news of Madeline's death spreading like wildfire among Dunshire's gossiping Shire-ladies, which put a halt to the days tilling of vegetable patches and tending of flocks, Ernie trudges home, sits on his sofa, and stares at a picture on the wall by Nodian Elric. There was little of village and Halfling life that was untouched by Madeline Applefoot. From the sunny Dunshire days that never seemed to end, to the care and solicitude with which she treated every proper Halfling and Dunshire villager. Ernie lifts the painting off the wall and looks at it closely. It shows every Dunshire Halfling and their children sat underneath the ale garden tent. Pints of Branborough Buzz, Withfoot Cider and Applebrook Porter in every hand and smiles on every face. The painting had signatures of everyone from the village beneath it, and the ink on Madeline's name began to smear as a tear fell on the painting.

    @atles I'd be interested in having a look of that map, PM me or put it in here if you find it I suppose. I also remember being on a server with some of the Australian guys that lived in Whisper Isle and they were restoring the Aegis map to be clean and non-destroyed. I don't know if your map is from the same thing though

    Dunshire | Laws & Traditions

    Ernie adds on another slip of sheepskin with a few laws and traditions of old: -A Halfling recognises that baths are important and promises to take one at least every week -Residents of Dunshire are required to drink at least one pint of ale every week. -Residents of Dunshire promise they are not secretly an Undead, an Iblees worshipper, a biggun, a munchkin, or a spider, and will evict themselves from Dunshire without harming other villagers if they are.

    I look here occasionally. Nice to see an old undead friend though As a side note, would any of you guys want the download link to the Aegis map? It even still has peoples stuff saved in their chests (fun to see who was spawning stuff in actually) but it was right at the end so lots of places have been destroyed by undead, but its stll good. Message me if so
