He just can't learn to play peacefully with others not associated with him, I agree, lets just kill him..

Give them a break, they just lost their whole faction and converted and you went ahead to continue robbing them of what they had left. :(

It's extremely meta and non-RP to disappear during a fight, but the same goes for boxing off the log-off spot. I decided that making a box around the spot or "capturing" the person would make up for the logoff, or "cancel" it out.

[QUOTE=oskutin;31491003]Faction chat should be global :v: And remember that i want to configure levels.[/QUOTE] Yeah, faction chat should work alongside this, but I'm not sure how. Again, we just need Dragory to actually be online active to get this stuff to work, that's currently our only barrier.
The XP mod won't restrict us from mining or doing what we normally do right? Will it just let us improve what we do? I would be pissed to mine diamond with my Ipick and get no diamond because I am not a high enough level.
[QUOTE=Chezhead;31487886]If someone was hacking diamonds in, that's a class 1 offense and they will be banned immediately.

[QUOTE=RainbowPillows;31482888]It's quite simple what you did. You see, you hated him because he tried to assasinate you, saw him log, built a cage around that spot, and when he logged you killed him and made off with his items. It doesn't help the RP at all. We had the potential for an A+ plot twist, a possible man hunt but instead its oh lets just cage so that when he logs in like an hour later we can solve it all. Weak.[/QUOTE] If someone attempts to kill me, Im not going to simply let that pass, I never hated Apcragg, I gave him everything that was his, and on his request, things such as his bookshelves, books, 15 Iron, a Diamond Pickaxe, in return, he don't bother Skaal anymore. I also gave him 20 Diamonds back out of what we got from him, which is far more than you can say about what you did to Space or Krut. He logged off immediately after, and be honest, if you had a fully-armored Player with a diamond sword in your base, who logged off right after his attempt to kill you, what would you have done. Logging off right after the assassination attempt and still staying in our base did not help RP either, but you could only care about what we did. We countered his logging off, with a Perimeter, around the area of his disconnection. I admit to it to being Meta-gaming, but it was both of us, and not just us, so don't point the finger saying how it was only us that meta-gamed. Our problem with Apcragg was resolved when we returned the items, and sent him on his way. Apcragg was a really good member of Skaal, built a sugar-cane Farm, and even helped mine, he understands why we sent him on his way out of Skaal, and he did it in a respecful and mature manner. (Unlike some people) We never wanted to kill Apcragg, I knew at some point that their were spies, but I was willing to give everyone a chance into our faction. TBFundy was an obvious spy, and we still invited him in, we only kick players out if it was necessary . TBFundy broke a ton of random blocks in the faction's town, and even in Ironhelm's railway. He never learned, and never replied when I asked him multiple times to stop. When he logged on only to find he was kicked, we told him why, and the only response we got from him was "Lol". We even let him gather his items in his house, we broke the chests so he could pick them up, When he didn't leave, Stood idling in the Gates rather leave, is when we killed him. We then dropped his items out at the front gate, and the first thing he does is say he's gonna blow up Skaal when his items were returned, and then complains that we killed him.

The economy is so saturated at the moment, as anyone can do anything. We're working on making it a bit more realistic, and balanced. People have jobs as woodcutters, but anyone can do what they do. If we made it improve what you do, the economy would be even more saturated. More wheat would fill our chests, more cobble, more diamond. It would just make things even worse off. [editline]2nd August 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=btang03;31491633]TBFundy broke a ton of random blocks in the faction's town, and even in Ironhelm's railway.[/QUOTE] Did he really break blocks in the town? If he did it maliciously, even if he was in the faction, that's against the rules. Also, railways are protected by the "any player-made structure shouldn't be griefed (outside of war)", so he should be banned. I'll check into it later once Dragory comes back online and starts the server up.
Down now, down before, down forever. Such si the server. [editline]2nd August 2011[/editline] Also, banning kinda is meta-gaming, too. :v:
[QUOTE=MountainWatcher;31491968]Down now, down before, down forever. Such si the server.[/QUOTE] Dragory is just lazy as usual. Once he's online, it's just a button press to get the server back up.

[editline]2nd August 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=MountainWatcher;31491968]Also, banning kinda is meta-gaming, too. :v:[/QUOTE] I was thinking about that. Once thing we could always do is put a bounty on the person's head when they should be banned. Once they die, we would ban them.

Dragory is online (and AFK) now.
Because I'm bored: A quick history of the server (as far as I remember) [thumb]http://www.1337upload.net/files/1mappi.png[/thumb] I joined the server, joined [URL="http://www.1337upload.net/files/2011-03-14_20.39.20.png"]Creepavalley[/URL], which was pretty much the biggest faction and had the largest city. At that time, a lot of stuff was made with /give, so this city was HUGE. Eventually, I got bored, and killed Loriborn, a random citizen (at the time, but this causes problems later!). I run away with Deadchicken and a few others to create Umbra Mortus, a shady faction that terrorized the village constantly. On a random day, I decided to run into Creepavalley and attack it. 3 guards stood no chance, and I took them all down. At this time, someone started ruining the town, and there was a general riot. I eventually stood atop the castle, and told everyone I owned the city. No one really minded, so I renamed it "Flooderia" (after the constant floods someone was causing), and put up propaganda signs all over. Once the previous owners of the town got back, they took the place back over. By then, it was in ruins, and it was abandoned and looted. It still was interesting to explore it, as there was a hidden monster disposal system beneath the city I never discovered until I found a hole in the street. That was operated by legendary_ken, by the way. After my defeat at Flooderia, Umbra Mortus' tower was destroyed by some other people and Deadchicken and I built another one far away. Fenway was created, and we terrorized that for a bit, but left it alone after a while. Meanwhile, Loriborn created a neat little city on the ice called "Icecap", which we attacked multiple times. After a while, our current fort was found, but it was a very complicated attack in which rules were broken, so we just left it alone. I took up a job as Loremaster, and created [URL="http://youtu.be/wwl-KHCWSKM"]dungeons and cool stuff[/URL] with Deadchicken. At this point, the server was shut down due to some conflicting updates. The final map looked like [URL="http://www.1337upload.net/files/3map.png"]this[/URL]. A second server came up, but that was extremely short lived. Fast forward to the 3rd server. This one was interesting, but extremely unbalanced. There was a singular ruling faction, Meinheim, which all but one admin was on. Any other factions usually [URL="http://gyazo.com/985051b911dd2492545e69c5d0518c93.png"]got destroyed[/URL] within a matter of days either by pressure to join or attack.

After a while, Loriborn and I developed a fierce rivalry. Our factions hated each other. We hated Meinheim for being the giant, overruling faction owning almost all the members of the server, and they hated us for being the annoying flea that attacked them. Tobba2, ThePortalMastster and I were the most active members in that faction.

We planned to attack Meinheim with the allied power of Winland (now Kalewala), but never got to due to server shutdown. Jump to the current server: Loriborn and Meinheim were pretty much non-existant. Ironhelm was set up to be the new Meinheim, but luckily, people joined other factions and it is currently relatively balanced. You know the rest, as you are creating and playing it.

It's not wrong to kill, but you need to restrain from killing everybody not from your group, have a sense of decency, and try to do other things besides robbing and killing people.
