New Spawn!

WE GOT A NEW SPAWN.

Instead of spawning on top of Mount Olketessan, new members will now spawn on a small plateau that contains some information that everybody – even old members – should read. I will cover the info here.

 

I decided to introduce a new system, which I call “Ambitus”. It is essentially bribery.

1. Make an altar near the base of Olketessan on the small lake, which is near Castle Olketessan. An altar should be a diamond block on bottom, then a lapis block, then a chest. Somewhere on the altar should be your name, so I know who made the altar. The chest should have valuable goods inside.

2. When the person who made the altar is online, I will approach them and ask them what they want. You can bribe me to destroy an enemy’s (or friend’s) base, or ask me for some resources. You can ask me for anything you wish, and the bigger the offering, the bigger the request. Or, if I don’t like your offering or offer, I might kill you on the spot. Or I might destroy your own base. Or I might plague your people and set them on fire whenever they get on.

You’ll never know why your base is gone, or who asked me to do it, or if I did it for fun! I can tell you’re all enjoying the sweet prospect of Ambitus.

 

Good luck!

Waiting…

MANY OF YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED . . .

That the server is down. Well, I decided that wasn’t necessary. So Dunmel’s up, until further notice.

Welcome, ali46002, to Dunmel Island! And AnonymousFreak, we hope you’ll be something more than that. But, really, welcome. Glad to have some new players on the server. I wish you luck.

 

The Quandary Islands Get Real

WE CAN ONLY HOPE THE GODS WISH US MERCY . . . 

. . . because Dunmel Island is getting its first small expansion! I am adding on to the Dunmel Island map, but fixing some terrain generation bugs along the way. Some of you may have noticed how there’s a random forest biome intruding upon the desert, and how a jungle biome demolishes our nice plains area. I will be destroying these jungles and forests, and I also wish luck to those who set up camp in those bugged areas. They will be getting fixed.

But that’s not the big news. I am expanding the horizon – literally – on the “Quandary Islands” thing by adding an entirely new island. This will be Variform Island, which I’m still tweaking. It will be the general home of the god Arcus, the Immortal of wisdom. She dislikes mortals who intrude upon her property, so be wary. Arcus is John Locke’s mother, so she might not mind him visiting Variform Island.

I am not revealing too much about the island, but it is small, and not fit for anyone who wants to stay there. Nobody would be that foolish. The real danger lies right under the skin…

New Look, But Same Great Taste!

I DECIDED TO DO THAT THING …

Where a company says “we have a new look”, but still keep that great old taste. That, i have done. I decided to get a new theme for the blog, because the old one was nice, but I also had a drab look to it.

So, now inspired by toothpaste ads, I got a new theme. And what better way to test it out that write a new post about it?

Also, if anyone is interested in advertising for the server, just message me asking for permission. You can either message me on the Minecraft Forums, or preferably, on this very blog. Messaging me on the Forums works too, because I’m on there more often.

 

Thanks!

The Quandary Islands

MANY PEOPLE FAIL TO NOTICE THE GHOSTLY ISLANDS AROUND DUNMEL.

 

These mythical and misty islands exist beyond the reach of the mortals, a closely guarded secret of the gods. All the gods attempt to guard it… except one god, who thinks he owns it. Fogpen, the god of madness, dragons, lies, and secrets. He calls the Outer Quandary Islands his own, even though Dunmel itself is in the Quandary islands.

I need to call upon heroes once more… to call them to the misty shores of Galeon to find the minions of Fogpen… the legendary Havocers.

 

LORE!

YEP, I’M WORKING ON THE LORE.

I am periodically adding more of the mythology to the Lore page. You may want to visit it often, as new things are being added.

 

Thanks!
