There was a bouquet in his hands and allergy medicine in the other. For who he did not know, he simply kept walking along the dirt road. Past the lily of the valleys, past the tulips, and far beyond the pansy's. Maybe the flowers in his hand were for himself, maybe for those he wronged, maybe for life, the very thing he felt void in. It didn't matter, he simply kept walking down the dirt path, one by one the petals falling from the small gusts of wind. Easter was a day to consider, Easter was a day to wonder, Easter was a day to smell the beginnings and ends of life.

Hello everyone! You know what day it is, I know what day it is, we all know what day it is. It's Easter. The day where we have no idea how a bunny rabbit and Mr. Jesus's re-birth/Resurrection/idk got put on the same day, tied hand in hand. I hope all of you are having a wonderful day.
Today's event is a little bit more mundane and domestic, let's cut right to it.

I have hidden TWELVE DIAMOND CHESTS around the map. Inside there are Easter themed prizes, what ones we do not know. No they are not in random places in the middle of a field but some are challenging while others are easy. Also if you find one empty, it is most likely a decoy chest. I will give you the first hint to one of the chests, if you find a chest, place a screenshot of it in the comments below and I will give you all another hint to a chest not yet found.

Hint #1

THIS CHEST HAS BEEN FOUND

The smell of seawater is strong, calloused hands pull at the metal, tugging, pulling, hoping the motion on the other side isn't a bluff, behind him the hint of wood and hay floats with the gusts of wind that carry over the calm waves.

Hint #2

THIS CHEST HAS BEEN FOUND

Water echoes and drips in sequence with her tears, deep underground is the chatter and business of others yet she sits there tracing the arch above her with bloodied fingers pondering if she...
I have good news for you all, Hex and Soap have told me that the Revamp is almost ready for public testing so we have made a joint decision to allow everyone who bought Beater, Beater+ and Soloplayer to have early acsess to the revamp server!

The early acsess will involve basic dungeon and grinding areas with a few updated quest zones, The testing will be open for around 1-2 weeks depending on how well the server goes,

Currently the plan is we open the server to the donators on the 14th and we plan to go live one the 1st of May

Watch this space and I will try to keep you all posted <3

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:
http://www.doesitusecloudflare.com (seems to be under heavy traffic rn)

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.
