Fast forward a few months, a few towns have sprung up here and there, including one I helped found. All is going well. Another month or so, and someone makes a form of government to unite the established towns, known as the Sanctum. The Sanctum towns watched out for eachother, helped build in eachothers towns, traded, etc. Fast forward again to a few months ago, where someone decided to destroy the one of the towns completely, as well as the Sanctum building, almost effectively destroying all the order we had worked to achieve. We survived, rebuilt elsewhere, and are thriving.
The only rules on the server are no hacking/duping and no bugging the admin constantly. We used to have a Stargate mod to allow fast travel between areas, but that was recently taken away and we lost a lot of players. There are still consistently about 15-20 people on the server, most starting out or living in newly founded towns. What we have is exactly what you described. Fight for your life, trust people carefully, and moreover, just play the damn game however you want.
One problem we've had is our admin has tried out all sorts of mods over time, and its lost a bit of its harshness and edge, but has drawn in a lot more players. We have a second server run by a different admin, who used to be a moderator on the original one back in it's prime, which he runs exactly as it was back then.
The server's IP is jkeller4000.com:25570 and is run by JKELLER4000
Second server's IP is jkeller4000.com:25565 and is run by MPFIV
I hope to see you there, and anyone else who cares to join. I've played on this server for almost a year, and I don't plan on ever finding a different one. I can guarantee you will enjoy it.
The post is from a thread on the idea of a server which has no laws. you can do anything without being banned (other than complain about the server, which is rather silly). it's interesting to just explore, theirs tons of ruined buildings, raided caves, burnt villages, and a couple of thriving towns. the community are friendly and most people are trustworthy. and it's really nice to not have a stupid money system or level thing and just have single player with more people.
It would be nice to see some of you on there, we could set up our own town and investigate the ruins. I feel like finding a old large building and patching it up, it would give a nice feeling and plenty of space with little work.
currently i'm just wandering, scavenging. there are tons of dungeons.
