  • A Brave New World

    June 5th, year unknown

    It had been weeks since the great upheaval began. Riots overtook the land and fire followed.

    At first I didn’t fear the mobs. I have fortified my home to an extent unheard of in times of peace. But, these are no longer times of peace.

    I see fires in the distance and at times have seen bands of looters on the horizon. I know they will come for me at some point, but till then I will try to maintain a level of normalcy.

    Crops need tending, animals must be fed and my wards need protected.

    My lands include a village of almost 40 people as well as servant quarters. I also rent small sections of land to allies on the outer perimeter. I think it is time for everyone to move inside the main walls.

  • My Opinion on the New Forums

      Hello! First of all, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. There were no discussion categories that had to do with the forums. (none that I saw)

    Anyways, here I am going to put my opinion on the new forums. What I think might improve it, and such. Feel free to post your's in the comments of this one too! :)

    So, what I think of the new forums.
    First of all, I might be the only one, which is okay, but I preferred the dark theme that was on the old forums. The white and blue looks much cleaner, but it hurts my eyes because my computer monitor is very bright. Next, I can't seem to find a favorite or follow button on forum posts. I can only find the bookmark button. I also don't see the status posts the used to be to the right of the screen. I enjoyed having them because I could say things without having to open a whole new discussion. And finally, images don't work. But this isn't much of an issue. And it is more a technical problem than my opinion, but I thought I might include it in this post. Otherwise, I like the new forums and I think that many other people will like it too.

    Thanks for reading!

    Also, before you post your comment on this..... Please, do NOT fight in the comments about disagreements. Just because maybe you love something and somebody else hates it, that is no reason to fight.

  • Creative Bi-Monthly Build Comp: Tell a Fairytale


    a great example, from suac's second plot in Creative


    *Tell a Fairy tale!*

    Creative Build Comp: March 15th - 31st

    Build comps on Creative will now be quicker and smaller, and twice a month! Although you have less time, this is a great way to earn some nice prizes in Creative and show off your skills!


    You may start building anytime starting from March 15th, and will have until March 31st at midnight EST to finish your build. Any builds submitted after this date will not be entered or judged.


    Tell a Fairy tale! Your builds can be inspired by existing fairy tales, like Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood. You could also build what you think is a perfect fairy tale. Make sure it has a Happily Ever After, we wouldn't want to make others negative with our fairy tales!


    The build must be on /creative. Builds on /creativevip or any other server will not qualify.


    The builds cannot be offensive or inappropriate.

    Do not ask staff anything about the other contestants.

    You can work together on your build, but only the plot owner will get the prize.


    The judging will be based on Theme, Creativity, Originality, and Difficulty.


    After you finish your build:
    When you have finished the build (which must be on the /creative server), create a /modreq regarding the Tell a Fairytale Contest and it will be entered for judging.


    Announcing winners:
    The winners will be announced by midnight on April 1st in this thread.



    *Prizes will be given to the top three builds!*
    First prize: 5 tokens, 500 treats.
    Second prize: 250 treats, 1 player or staff head of choice.
    Third prize: 100 treats, 1 player or staff head of choice.


    We hope you participate and have fun! Good luck!

    • By "now" I mean when I get the world set up, which is mostly done as for this writing. I will, some time on the 10th, or 11th, whitelist Gardens and allow only judges on.  They will have until the 16th to conclude judging, so winners can be announced on 17 March.

    • All MineCats, Gardens and Comp rules MUST be obeyed.  Failure to abide by the rules may result in your build being removed (not accepted), You being banned from Gardens (Appeals will not be accepted until competition end), or for very drastic violations, permanent ban from all of MineCats.  Or anything in between.

    • Judges may participate in the Build Comp as well, and in fact, judges are not known until near the end of the competition.  Judges Wanted announcements will be made for the staff at that time.  Everyone else is welcome to participate in the Build Comp, provided they are not banned from Gardens or MineCats.

    • To join the Build Comp, go to /server Gardens and walk through the portal for the CompWorld.  If you had participated in the Valentine's Day Build Comp, you will use your previous plot location.  New entrants will have to do /p auto to claim a plot.

    • The prizes are single person prizes.  As such, no help will be allowed on builds. Only the plot owner is eligible to win the prizes.

    Good Luck & Have Fun
