man, it's been a while! i would've completely forgotten about this server if i hadn't gotten the community message email! i don't think i'll be able to participate in the most recent event, but maybe i'll swing by some time!
The Halloween world, previously known as "The Afterlife", is returning soon
For those of you haven't played this dimension before, it's spooky, full of weird & unusual creatures, and incredibly deadly. It has graves you can rob, Dungeons to crawl, and strange things to observe... but we need a safe place to spawn into all of this... and YOUR BUILD could be just that! This is open to your interpretation - let your imagination soar!
Theme: "Halloween Buildcomp"
Start: Sunday, Oct 7, at 12:00 am (CDT)
End: Sunday, Oct 14 at 12:00 midnight (CDT)
Entry Fee: Free!
How to Enter: In the Towny Reforged server go to ./warp buildcomp and click a sign to rent your plot.
The winning build is going to be featured as the "SpawnPoint" in the new HalloweenWorld_v2018.
As this is a creative comp, the building goes a lot faster. Plus, we're dying to get the winning build into the Halloween world ASAP so we can open it to the players, so we're keeping the contest time pretty short!
Your build doesn't necessarily have to be a Mansion... be inventive but stay inside the Glowstone border in your plot. You can flatten it, build into or onto it, or with it, as long as you stay inside. The rest of the land outside of that border is just for reference - so you have an idea where the build is going to be going. The Halloween world is always night, so keep that in mind when you are building as well.
Winner's Prizes: 1st place:Premium rank for 2 weeks, $10K in-game cash & choice of a) 50 Towny plots or b) Special Edition "Builder's Choice" Pickaxe
Hoping to see a number of unique entries - claim your plot now as it is a short contest period!
As we have a number of inactive players that are negatively impacting the health of their Town/Nation by their continued absence, we are bringing in this rule, Effective tomorrow morning, at 9am EDT Now:
An inactive leader of any Town or Nation, (over 30 days time away with no contact) may have their position challenged
By request, the next player in line may take over leadership. So for example, if Fred is King of a Nation (but hasn't been online in over 30 days), and Martha is the Nation's Assistant, then Martha may take over rule of that Nation, by request HERE. If neither Mayor/King nor Assistant are active, the option is open to anyone currently in that town.
If the original owner returns, they may (by request), have the original founding fee for the Town (10K) or Nation (100K) returned to their account, within 1 week of acknowledgement by Owner or Senior Staff (in order to give the new owner time to rebuild funds).
Also, we are officially extending that 30 day concept to town residents as well, so that active Mayors can "clean out" inactive plots. Their will be no refunds issued to inactive players.
This is one step to work towards eliminating "ghost towns" where players may feel they are "stuck" and become frustrated with playing.
