  1. Your View: ARCAS - Sense of Completeness I’ve overheard some concern expressed around how complete or full the map feels, players expressing that they feel like Arcas was either rushed, or that aspects of the map were neglected. As such, I would like to attempt to tackle these issues by sprucing up parts of the map that are barren, landscarred, or incomplete. To help this process along, we are interested in what areas of the map you feel need the most improvement. - Are there any specific world builds that come to mind as being aesthetically displeasing or unfinished? - Are there any specific natural areas of the map that come to mind as being very bland, borderline landscarred, or lacking in completeness? - When it comes to a map feeling finished or immersive, do you prefer to see a lot of “life” in the sense of lush nature and unique terrain, do you prefer to see a lot of “history” in the sense of ruins and signs of past civilizations, or do you prefer to see both heavily intertwined? If you have any other feedback to provide on this topic it would be appreciated. Thanks!
  2. (A Depiction of Humble Servants of The Creator gathering amoungst themselves peacefully) Circa, 1725, 9th of Sun’s Smile A man sits in his study, Eyes follow trails far too muddy, Lost is his mind, Forgotten when it is time, Let us look to our predecessors we’ve forgot, For we may continue on to one hundred new Empire’s, Or not, “Do not allow your Monarchs, Bureaucratic Patriarchs, and inept Dukes decide your fate, for they shalt leadeth thee into oblivion, and allow Iblee’s chaos to once again ravage our people’s GOOD hearts.” ”Look unto my eyes for I am a man created by Lord GOD, Lo’ I am the servant to whom is all powerful, I tell thee, and I tell thee.” The man hoists up his White Scepter; made of Lord GOD’s own bounty, “There’s work to be done.”
  3. Shadow of the Empire The Known World, Year 700 (zooming in may be required to view cities) ----------------------------------------------=0=---------------------------------------------- Music Brief Summary The last centuries have not been kind to the Imperial state. A once mighty and indomitable force that stretched from Mesopotamia to the northern shores of the Emerald Isle has been reduced far from its former glory. Decades of stagnation, mismanagement, invasion, corruption, and plague has taken its toll on the state. The first of the dominoes fell in Italy. In 642, an amalgamation of Italian senators, natives, and generals orchestrated one of the first Imperial civil wars. In a matter of years, Imperial armies were dealt crushing defeats, and forced to largely abandon the province. Following the withdrawal, the unified coalition splintered, leaving the peninsula divided. In the British Isles continuous pressure from both Highlanders and Seakings alike has slowly eroded Imperial authority. Weakening garrisons, destroying outposts, Imperial control of the region slowly slipped. By 653, British officials could no longer tolerate the stagnant Imperial rule, and cast off their rule. Egypt, by far the most profitable Imperial province was thrown into a state of confusion by mid 660. A terrible defeat inflicted by invading Persians opened the door into the entirety of Imperial north africa. Persian armies penetrated deep into Egypt, leaving a large trail of death and destruction in their wake. The regional capital at Alexandria was even sacked towards the end of campaign. Following the humiliating defeats in Egypt and Judea, Imperial forces were unable to stop the separation of the provinces of Libya and Judea. The most recent string of shortcomings to strike the Imperial realm have sprouted up in Iberia. Only four years ago, the rebellions in Iberia begun in full swing. Self proclaimed kingdoms and empires alike on the peninsula continue to wage war against Imperial forces, though no decisive confrontation has been made yet. Now, with the assassination of the old Emperor Louis X. His son, the ambitious Charles III ascends to the Imperial throne, vowing to reclaim the lost territories and restore Imperial prestige. The future of the Empire, and the Mediterranean world as a whole hangs in the balance.. ------------------------------=0=------------------------------ OOC The rules/mechanics can be found here [Click Me], Any questions can be brought up with me.

  4. Imagine seeing someone's actual hands move with their own personal hand gestures as well as their head move with every real life nod or shake. This has personally been on my mind for a few days, but also wondered if other players have thought about the idea of playing VR Minecraft on a roleplay server, the kind of inspiration, immersion, and the type of experience it could possibly bring. There are videos that show that it's possible to have both VR players and normal Minecraft players on the same server (x) (It seems the guy recording isn’t using a vr, but his friends are), and a video that show what it's like to play in the Minecraft VR experience (x) (Showing OMGCraft covering it). Personally, this looks like a lot of fun, but also on the videos it shows how hard it is to PVP whilst in VR, but also talks about how fun it is to use bows and such. The only problem is that there are threads on Hypixel that regard being banned from the server by watchdog for having a 'hacked client'. (x) This is one of the main problems found on the search listings. Also if it's allowed by staff's permission, I'm willing to help test. Oculus releasing VR Minecraft (August 15, 2016) but most install a mod that’s called “Vivecraft” Foot note thoughts: Say if I joined RIGHT NOW in Vivecraft- Would I be able to see what others type in the chat? https://www.vivecraft.org/faq/ says in order for normal players to see vr players in VR, they require the vivecraft server plugin.. Will there possibly be VR support someday? Is it impossible? Will this effect TPS? Say if I got banned for testing, Can I request to get unbanned by staff?

  7. AND TO THE MIRE, HE RETURNS ___________________________________ [!] A depiction of Kaer Glythen, the Aeldinic seat of House Grimm The war between the feuding Imperial Houses of Horen and Marna has claimed many lives as of recent, and families all throughout the two imperiums now grieved for lost sons and daughters - taken all too soon in the conflict. One such family is the noble House of Grimm, its members having learned of its patriarch’s death in the most horrible of ways; The Baron’s corpse was shipped to the stone-maken walls of Reza, confined to a wooden box devoid of any means to initially identify him. Eventually, however, upon reaching hold of Lady Grimm, authorities were able to properly identify the bloodied husk as her spouse - a man who had so chivalrously lived past his prime. As the family grieved together and sorted through the late patriarch’s belongings, a piece of parchment was found. On the paper lay dozens of crossed out lines of text, all discarded before the middle of the page. In there, a handful of lines remained, writing comparable to chicken scratch, though legible nonetheless. I remember my arrival upon Atlas hazily, though some memories do not escape me. The overwhelming fear of leaving my parents, and my eldest siblings, on their lonesome in Venerra. Thankfully, I had my sister Alana by my side throughout the voyage. Tempests raged about us as we ventured further into the murky waters, our vessel soon being consumed by a grey mist -- restricting our vision for a good while. In the days following, we could make out a jagged mountain ahead; Overjoyed, Alana and I leaped into the frigid waters and gradually arrived to Haeseni shores. As we made our way into the confines of Markev, we were greeted by our cousins, Emma Ludovar and her younger sibling, Jacob. My sister took the path of Chamberlain; I, on the other hand, pursued the path my father had always desired for me - knighthood. And so life went on for me: I had four beauteous children and a supportive consort. Alas, I write this for I have spent fifty-some years alive - Death encroaches, and rapidly at that. Should you find this and I’m deceased, my sole request is to be returned to my grand-nephew, William I of Venerra, where I am to be laid in our family crypts with my father Elias, my mother Selina, and my siblings. To the mire, I return. Credit to Axelu for writing the entire thing, I’m just here for the rep.
  8. @Chorale_told @Youngie5500, @ChonGojDragonski, and I to take this argument elsewhere. So we were arguing that the fact that there was no punishment on Ioannis was not very logical, as all the evidence incriminates him. The post from DPM was a little confusing (at least for monkeys like me) until he posted again saying that after the event of him and Ioannis speaking, Dewper later got DDoSed. Youngie says that since there was no direct evidence of Ioannis DDoSing Dewper, it can't be used, and "Him saying "Yea, let's do it" followed by loud laughter doesn't mean he'd actually go through with it." DPM was very calm when he was in the VC with me and some others, so him PMing ACU20 saying he'd DDoS him didn't seem like a real threat to me. Also, he did not get DDoSed after the pvp ended, so clearly wasn't a serious threat at the very least, and could be related to what Ioannis did in Youngie's mind. Seems like staff isn't holding players to the same standard. Also, Ioannis wasn't even punished with all that evidence on him. He had to step down himself, and is not blacklisted from staff. The only way he could've gotten Dewper's IP was from using admin perms to see him on the website. This all seems pretty strange to me, not to mention he stepped down after evidence rose a second time ?. any thoughts on this? hoping Youngie and Chon will reply at the very least. Chon raises some very good points in the original debate, that I'd rather just screenshot than retype them all. I disagree with Youngie's points as they are more based on how he thinks of Ioannis, and there not being "evidence beyond a reasonable doubt." Which I also do not agree with, since it seems pretty obvious to me.

  9. Sylvestre III’s Third Mayoral Speech Painting of Main Street in Cyrilsburg, 1653 A month has passed, as the citizens of Cyrilsburg begins to gather around in Main Street Sylvester III would place a box as he'd go to stand on it looking at the people People of Cyrilsburg, after this month of the election I've heard that the race is closer than you all think. As with that, I have something to tell to those who still haven’t decided. Those of you who haven’t decided, I want to ask you do you really want one person to have gain more power than he already has?, do you as a citizen of Cyrilsburg want to be possibly looked over?. I come to ask for many of you to vote for what’s right for our people, and I know many of our citizens are conscripted into the military but it’s best that all of our citizens know how to defend...themselves from harm. I come to you citizens that I look to bring a re-establishment within our taxes as well as a few tax cuts, bring our military into homes of their own, evict those who have left, build stalls for merchants, and finally re-establish what we once had as a growing population. What I mean by that is, I want to re-establish the events we once had within Curon like masses, festivals, tournaments, and so on so forth. I come to you people of Cyrilsburg that in the next following months of this election you choose what’s best not for yourself but for this great community we have here in Curon, Thank you. Sylvestre III would wave at the cheering crowd before he’d step off the box VOTE SYLVESTRE III FOR MAYOR TODAY! “With Wealth Comes Prosperity!” https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/170951-sylvestre-iiis-third-mayoral-speech/
  10. Religion and its standing: Throughout Axios, religious Roleplay has been, or has been attempted to introduced into the hearts of major roleplay hubs and/or cliques and for the most part, has caused many events of roleplay and long-term event lines. Obviously with the maps end now, we are seeing these religious groups within their “comfort zone” of attempting to once again save the realm from destruction. One thing that Religious Roleplay hubs (Specifically speaking: Ascended*, Paladins, and the Clerics) lack for the most part is: an active place to roleplay. The reasons for this have been debated, and the list of popular reasons are listed below. Not enough players for an active roleplay hub These groups are continuously venturing around the realm to spark RP in other hubs. Religion has a lot of members, just not active enough to play. This debate has boiled into 6.0 and merged with other debates such as: who should and shouldn’t be getting land. This has been conflicted with both players and staff teams and I’d like to provide my opinion and give a chance for everyone to express theirs on an organized thread. My thoughts: Religious Roleplay for player hubs such as Veris contributed greatly to its general Activity and its short-term events. Throughout my time of leading Veris, the paladins, ascended, and clerics played major roles in spook events and were ALWAYS in the city. This obviously means they were sacrificing time away from their “home base” to assist in activity and produce a better form of roleplay for everyone else. This wasn’t just the case for Veris. These three major religious groups were spotted in every major city, small town, hamlet, cart hub, roadside tavern on the server and yet… the activity of their respective regions collapsed. With this being said, I am in affirmation of giving these religious groups one plot of land to delegate themselves, or small pieces of PROTECTED land to house their belongings and short roleplay scenarios at. I believe that, even though my character was against the majority of religion and its attempt to limit evil doing, the leaders and members of these religious groups have persisted and worked diligently to make sure that they provide roleplay. Now, your thoughts! I understand that in no regard does this post, my opinion, or the opinion of others guarantee one side or the other of this debate, however I feel its necessary to get the communities feedback. Remember! Keep the thread on topic and peaceful.
