The Warzone Event  very likely coming next weekend.  Please let me your availability for the event in this one question survey.

There have been several changes to the rules and I strongly suggest planned particiapants read them.  If anyone has any suggestions or concerns, please let me know.

For those not planning on participating in the war itself, motivated merchants looking to make mucho mullah should look to sell fire charges, tnt, arrows, and armor.  I will tag any shop that does this with the WAR! tag on the Ravenport page.
City News

- written by AlbinoAwesome
  • Albino's Sea Shanty is open near the unfinished bridge on the South side of Ravenport, selling wood, food, and other miscellaneous items at discount prices.
  • Taconia has opened a motel for users who are visiting the city or using the End Portal.
  • Patrons who donate iron bars to the city of Taconia in the motel, will receive benefits in regards to using the End Portal. (food, safer passage to the portal)
- written by lordnine
  • In an effort to appease the poorer inhabitants of Ravencraft the Mercantile traders group has graciously agreed to offer a cobblestone alternative as a means of paying for many of their fine wares and exotic imports.
- written by beebee766
  • Serenity - a new reception hall for the rail staion and Nether portal, a beautifull high-ceiling attractive building.  Our town notice-board and members board are in this hall, so it could be considered now as the 'centre' of Serenity - Jek, Awd and beebee.
  • The Great Pyramid - a collosally large pyramid on the outskirts of Serenity, located in the desert.  This vast structure is 125 high (above the clouds which move through it) and 165 x 165 base.  It will take your breath away and can only be fully appreciated on 'Far' rendering distance.  The floor will feature beautiful mozaics, digitised into colours from actual pictures.  Under construction - join in if you like! - bee and Awd
  • Solitude - Jek has made this into a habitable sand mine area with its own portal, staorage and safe-haven.
  • Ravenport Shop - in a prime waterfront location in the commercial district, we have specialised in selling anything to do with rail travel.  Sales are going well and the gold generated is communal SABC currency for purchasing materials for our various projects.
  • New Member - we have Panda_Assassin joining us as a friend of Awdolan's.  Bee also new Panda from a previous server, so he comes vouchsafe and in good honour.
  • War Zone - SABC has formed an Army to compete in the WarZone, with Goldsword heading up the troops as our General, assisted by Captain Awdolan as his 2nd in command.  Already much planning and work has been done and we feel we are well prepared, so if you are not an SABC member or afilliate and find yourself in the WarZone, travel with the greatest unease !! Obviously we are not going to tell you about our progress and what we have done, but we are sure you will find out soon :-)
  • Arena - recent contests in the Arena have shown that it works well, but will need some fine tuning.  You may/may not know that SABC esigned and built it at Old Serenity in the Old World and Wiz transposed the entire Arena to the outskirts of Ravenport, where it is used for small 1v1 battles. 
  • Recruiting - you have probably noticed already that we do not go out and actively recruit new members.  If a player likes SABC style and knows some members, he/she can apply to join or even be invited.  We go for quality, not quantity!
  • Exodus - Jek has been active in building and embellishing the beautiful desert town of Exodus.  Definitely worth a visit with some inovative structures such as a mosque, a colosseum and a fabulous man-made gorge.
Archean Empire
  • Builds - Moose696 is working on a large underwater base  in the Archean seas.
  • War Zone - The Archean army is constructing a formidable defense tower in the center of the War Zone.  Its definitely the largest and most interesting structure there.
  • Transportation - A large suspension bridge is under construction on the road between Ravenport and Mercantile
  • Future Expansion - After the War Zone Event, the city will continue expanding to the east and west.  A hedge maze is planned around the arena, industry and the desert to the east will be converted to a beach/
