Hey all, Just want to let you all know that there is an issue when connecting to the server, I am trying to find what the issue is but so far I have found nothing in about 3 hours, It claims the login servers are down but there is no evidence of it being down as I am able to connect to our partner servers.

I will keep you posted so watch this space.

Bombs rained down with each marching step, every click of a round loading into the chamber. Shrapnel was even deadlier than bullets, you could eye down the gun that would bring your death, yet you couldn't see the shards of metal coming towards your body faster[​IMG] than lighting to deliver the blow. The soldier sat there, frozen as a statue as his bunk-mate charged ahead, screaming and following blindly yet knowing. Another pair of hands hauled him up and screamed in his ear, spitting blood, gunpowder, spit, and grit onto his face, both the material and feeling, "Soldier, get moving, you're too far in hell now[​IMG] to stop." And with that, the slug of boots kept that tune in his heart to have his own marching forward. Left and right, forward and behind, death was closing in, he chuckled as he could recognize and place the severed limb lying at his feet to it's owner several yards away. He was looking down at the grenade that was there, tick, tick, tick, click, click, and as it grew in interval slowly it turned into a spoon? A red and white cover was laying underneath the glass of lemonade with the gre- spoon stirring it, his eyes met the soft ones sitting across from him. A small voice asked, "Are you ok?" The man shook his head, smiled, and replied "Yes" as a comfort to the fireworks exploding above them.

A bit of a longer little mood-setting story hmm?
You all know what this means[​IMG], another event! Yay! (right?)

Before I roll into this event's details I am glad to say that Mr. Papa Bear aka Ursa has granted me permission to officially make events without having...
Just a small PSA that has not much to do with our website but as a responsible website admin I wanted to warn you anyways.

So today CloudFlare announced that they found out about a massive data leak that has been undiscovered for months. It basicly leaked random data from their servers to all websites that use CF's services. And well in between random data there were also quite a lot of passwords, usernames, cookies and more.

Anyways ancientrpg.net never used CF so we are safe on here but your other passwords might not. Change them immediately! All of them!

If you want to check if a website uses CloudFlare, check those websites:

The girls giggled and ran around, handing chocolates to their desired person, friend or romantic interest. 'I don't get it', he thought. He was sitting there, enjoying the food and watching the interactions among the society he lived in. 'Will I ever?', questioning himself again, it was a daily occurrence now-a-days. In a sense he could see what they were doing, he understood the motives behind the gifts and flowers. He looked to the empty seat to his right, a brief sparkle of a memory flashing, as he rests his hand down. "Happy Valentines Day, I'm sure you would have loved all this..."

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

It is a humble of an 'event'.
Cupid has arrived and the choclates are floating everywhere!
Also the Marriage Plugin has been/is being put back into effect! Yay! Finally I know!
Share your love and kindness around today, you never know who might need it. Sappy, I know, but you never know the impact you have on people until you bring it to light.

Have a wonderful day

Hey Hey Hey!

As you may know. I was promoted to Head-Designer recently. It's my job to give the players new content. So as I want to know what you guys want! So I am hosting a nice quest line competition! You will have from Feb. 9th to March 9th. Which will give you a whole lot of time to take care of it. I do need to lay down some rules so here we go. REMEMBER TO POST IDEA IN THE CORRECT CATEGORY!

Rules
  • The quest lines / stories must be usable in game, therefore they are bound to the laws of physics of Minecraft.
  • The quest lines / stories must use unique NPC's with a link to there skin from such websites as PMC unless they are a type of mob on the server or use the in game editor (Go into single player to mess around with this concept).
  • The quest lines / stories cannot be copied from other games, films etc. They can be loosely connected if you wish (such as a similar name or item).
  • Nothing too inappropriate such as a quest involving some sort of drugs or the use of offensive language etc.
[​IMG]

More may be added alongside suggestions from the community.

Tips
  • Think of lore for items, people and locations.
  • Good at building? Build some stuff to go with it on the build server!
  • You could make sword, bow or armour skins to go with the NPC's look / drops / rewards.
  • Be unique!
  • NPC's can run server based commands or make a player who clicks them run a command. If you have a plugin you want to run alongside the quest contact @UrsaMajorYT or @DetectiveStrife and they can test it to see if it works....
That's right folks, all vending blocks are to be confiscated and banned.
Due to certain duping exploits etc they are eventually going to be removed completely.
However, those who have shops will be allowed to close them down and sort everything out.
That is all I have time for today, stay tuned for further information.

He heard the faint boom of the fireworks a way off, sitting silently on the pier . Rocking his feet, crossing them, tapping lightly against the wood just thinking and ignoring the chattering behind him in the brightly decorated town. Boom, another firework lit off and even though they were created out of millions of pixels and coding, they looked as real as his own home's. Home... he wondered what the world was doing, were they worrying about the thousands still left, trapped in the game, or were they laughing and enjoying the festival without a care in the world? He supposed he'd never know. Sighing silently he looked up from the water, tilted his head and watched the town, listening to the players making the best out of what they could. Another year, another day, another minuet in this game ticked by, it was a depressing thought, so he let his mind be swept away with the calm, rolling waves, believing it was all real.

Woot Woot, another event!
Don't get your hopes up however everyone, this will be a humble event, for I myself have been quite busy and unfortunately I have been having many problems.
But enough about me! Let's get into the details of the Spring Festival tomorrow.

Of course I am going to be decorating the server, making it bright and shiny, but there will also be a market! The market will be in the same place Santa's workshop was (across from the bank).
Also, don't be surprised if you see a certain beast roaming around (aka possible Chinese Dragon Boss that drops the currency for the market).

I know, fairly short, but as I said, busy schedule, etc etc. And to answer why there has only been events on major holidays, it is because 1. busy as I said and 2. we're basically limiting events until revamp.

Lights. They were bursting in the sky here and there, everywhere. Not one was the same to another, they were all unique. One tangerine orange and the next a cobalt blue bursting in the shape of a heart to the sun. Occasionally there were the few smiley faces but he waited in anticipation for that one firework. The biggest this year, the grand finale, the solar system. All the fireworks bored him so far, they were simply the opening show, a shadow below the pinnacle of the main act. There on the railing he sat, looking up past the glimpse of the clock tower and the few persons with familiars hanging off the sides of the ticking hands like wild animals. Then, there it was, wide in the sky and bright as ever... the countdown. 5... 4... 3... 2... 1... *BANG* others were wrapped in the arms of another, some were laughing and hugging with friends, but his eye were wide on the sky. The Earth, Sun, Saturn and it's glorious rings, then his favorite planet of all, Jupiter. A never-ending storm, in the shape of a bright red eye, always watching. With a silent sigh, they dissipated silently, fizzing into a non-existent light once more and fell victim to the harsh winds of the earth. He stood, turned away, and walked home, the brightness shining in his eyes his guide through the dark and narrow streets.

nother year gone, how many more to go?

Hello everyon! Yes this event will be small and nothing to grand but it's the thought that counts. A new year, new experiences, new thoughts, and new encounters. I hope you are as excited to see what 2017 is to bring us as I am (whether it's good or bad).

For this event I will be getting on during Noon and Midnight {Except for 2 of them since 4am and 5am is a little to early for me XD} for the following time-zones to set off fireworks at the clock tower. With each countdown I will drop many items, trinkets, gifts, etc.

The...
It was snowing in their world. A yearly event that had all the people scrambling on to see. It may have been made out of pixels, fake pictures on a screen, but it was their escape, their own place they called home. There, flying above them all was one, cloak, eye-patch, shield, and all, shimmering like the north star in the sky. Her black and white ears twitched watching them all jump for joy after vanquishing yet another doomed boss. Of course there were few who sulked, heads down as they didn't have a new addition to their items and walked away from the group gloomy as can be. With that she smirked, spiked teeth reflecting off the flakes of ice in the air with mischief. Slowly, she flew off, grinning like a Cheshire cat, settling down on her throne in the sky with one thought drifting through her cloak-covered head. 'Oh how that gloom would change with tomorrow's last gift.' And with an echoing chuckle, the curtains close on the icy day eleven of their Christmas.

Hello everyone! I hope you all enjoyed these past twelve days as much as I have. Granted, it was hard getting on every day, especially when I spent five+ of them being sick. However, I trucked through it just for you all and the joy it fills me with to see you all enjoying your time on our server. Today even though I wasn't slashing my sword and gritting my teeth at the anticipation, I had a grin on my face the entire time. With a few technical difficulties at first you all stuck with me and bore it out, receiving joy and gifts. I thank you for that.
Below will be a few screenshots of the event from today.

Merry Christmas...
He yanked away, trudging off towards the thicket of pine. The crunch underneath him and whispers of snowflakes hitting his cloak were the only sounds for miles. In the distance there was a faint blue glow, he was close now. He looked down at his clenched hand, sword glinting off the moonlight. For her, he repeated in his head, stepping into the clearing. Jingle bells sounded and the boss dropped, his crooked appearance didn't faze the young man. He knew what was to come. With one lone tear falling onto the snow, sword grasped in hand, a promise in his heart, he then leapt.

Tomorrow during Christmas Eve, Nicholas The Renegade will appear. This is a one in a life time event I wish you will all come to participate in. If he is not killed. his drops will remain unknown. Revenge your fallen loved ones and defeat Nicholas The Renegade tomorrow at 10pm GMT.

He'll be waiting...
