  • New Residents:

A warm Welcome to all our newest Residents:
  • Monsterboii

Sever Event:

The server event continues, though its spoils grow more sparse with each new participant.  I have restocked the world several times, but with less tokens each time to remain a balanced reward system.  The token shop is up in the center of Hellspawn and many have cashed in their tokens for rewards.

I was working on the special prize yesterday and was having trouble with the plugins that I was hoping to use for it.  It is coming but I don't want everyone to hoard their tokens either.  The special prize is a group reward and more people does not mean less.  In fact, you will probably want to go as a group.

I'd like to know everyone's thoughts on the event.  If you could please fill out this anonymous three-question survey, I would be grateful.

  • Beebee and Stalin are coordinating North-to-East side rail transporation.  
  • Ciaflayed1 is starting a west-to-HS rail line.  
  • The server is seeking a portal transportation coordinator.  Please email wizardofire to apply for the job.
  • The server is seeking a road construction team.  Please coordinate in this thread.

I have come to understand that building in survival mode is a rather hard thing to do, especially on a large scale.  With the wood and stone production enterprise I have started, I've found that I can buy the other supplies I need with the money gained from those ventures.  This is how you do it:  you find a niche, part of the market that is currently under-developed and you delve in.  Ravenkraft needs gunpowder, brick, feathers, flint, obsidian, terraforming teams and builders.  If everyone were to pick up a different piece of the market and sell goods to one another, we would all find everything to be much more accessible and affordable than when we have to gather all the materials individualy.  This is what makes capitalism work.

A summary of new production:
  • A new lumber-house is being erected near Hellspawn to bring even more wood to the market faster than before.  
  • tmosconi's wool factory leads the way on wool production.  
  • Mob grinders of various types and sizes are being created.
  • Alexwakawaka's shop is selling affordable foodstuffs and redstone in Hellspawn
  • Chewiestmonky has opened a general goods store specializing in TNT and slimeballs.
  • superduck23 has opened Ducks Menagerie of Miscellaneous Materials in Hellspawn.

Ravenkraft now has five factions with more than one member: RVN (21), Bro (8), SABC (5), TAR (4) and WAAGH (2)
