    Just kinda curious, what is (the) the ancient world pack all about? Does it have a bunch of magic? Does it have old fashioned wind/water/animal powered machines? Crops? etc.

    I looked around a bit and couldn't find much information on it.

    Oh. I was confused because on http://www.drakortha.info/the-ancient-world/4561847648 it listed TAW modpack.

    oh yeah we had a modpack in a previous iteration of the server but not anymore. the server is currently just a spigot 1.9 server.

    Drak, whenever I can I'm trying to spread this servers name and get new players on it, I advertise it almost everywhere trying to get some more folks to enjoy what I've enjoyed here. Trying to get some new players in the mix is whats best for this server and upcoming new age which by the way, I can't wait for.

    If you want to set up some plugins as an anticheat I'll even help you test them until we get it just right, I'm totally serious, lets be productive and we can get a solution.

    Hey Drak just some thoughts for the new island you are working on, I saw that you wanted to add some snowy areas so maybe a sort of ice/glacier area can be added consisting of a large double maybe triple layer ice sheet off the coast consisting of packed ice, ice and snow blocks maybe packed ice spires as well as some snow caves and such. Think of the sea of ghosts in Skyrim sorta, would be a cool little change from the norm and would add a bit of mass to the size of the continent if people wanted to build out on the ice sheet.

    If you're going to build out on the ice you should have to use small builds of lighter materials, like snow blocks and igloos, small shacks, etc.

    No giant castles built on the ice over the ocean plz (At least, if you do, it better go to the sea floor).

    I'm thinking about holding some kind of Creative build competition for ice themed dungeons. Anything decent can be used on the new continent we're putting together. I'm also taking "ruin build" submissions. You can either build them in singleplayer and send me the download, or they can be built in our creative sandbox on the server. Builds will be used to populate the new continent with explorable areas and mob zones.

    Something unexpected appeared today on the continent of Blue Peaks. Something familiar, but not quite. Aqua, shard like blocks formed themselves in the Icy lakes of the region and spread outwards, spewing out creatures of unknown origin. Before retreating, responding fighters reported actually being lifted and thrown telekinetically. Video was captured of the event. Viewer discretion is advised – some may find this footage disturbing.

    Two bits of important news:
    https://mctaw.wordpress.com/2016/03/...th-pick-locks/

    On April 16th lockette will be removed from The Ancient World and be limited to The New World only.

    and:
    https://mctaw.wordpress.com/2016/03/...-up-for-grabs/

    Right now there are 5 plots up for rent in the upper city area of Ironheart. Prices have been set & the currency is emeralds, although this is planned to change to something like netherquartz. Fair warning – currency item & value may be altered in the near future as we’re very early in. I’m also planning on adding a chest shop plugin so you can create shops out of your plots!

    The value of diamonds has been increased a bit, and there's now some cheaper plots available in the city.

    Always fun going to old bases and finding signs you and your faction members put down in 2012.

    Why mate? Why is all I can ask right now, why destroy my faction mates and friends hours and hours and HOURS of hard work for something I did alone by myself?

    I get it, I'm an awful person to most of the moderators because I like to mod the most modifiable game on the planet, I don't deny it but why did that have to happen to my innocent faction mates who also love the server to death? If its all of our items you want just tell us what to hand over and Id make them give it over, or you could even WIPE THE CHESTS but why put a wither right in our bunker? Destroying and decimating an ages old faction home for what purpose? Some of our members love server so much that getting home to play was a highlight. Today was payday here for us EST'ers and two faction mates were going to drop $20 each onto the patreon and I was going to set down $15 because we like the server that much but now we/I just can't Drak and I'm sorry. Just help me understand what point you tried to prove?
