Ravencrest is a forest town found on the road to Ironhelm. It is run in a council sort of way; although I built it, I look to the citizens for advice and input regarding building and other suggestions. Being in a forest, we build entirely out of wood.
To find Ravencrest, take the road towards Ironhelm from spawn. It's about half way down the road, you can't miss it.
Currently, most if not all our residents are not miners. We rely primarily on trade to get what we need, and sometimes favor wood over iron as a currency. We mostly do not share what we acquire through trade, although items gained from the bounty of the surrounding nature are shared amongst the townsmen.
We work with a council type government. Each resident has a say in what we do or don't do, and meetings in our town hall decide on whether or not to carry out changes to the town.
We do not have a currency, as we are not part of any kingdom. Many of us value wood highly as it is used in all our construction, but we accept almost anything we need, be it iron, gold, diamond, or other misc items.
Our town produces much food, and so bread, fish, pork, stew, sugar, eggs, milk, wheat, cake, and even cookies are plentiful in the trading post.
Our town has several buildings to cater to your needs. We have:
A public forge
A private farm
A town hall
A guards quarters
A trading post
Current residents are:
Spacewolf78, our leader.
Doctor_Cuddles, our primary farmer.
DrPompo, leader of the arena.
ThePortalMaster, a member of IronHelm.
Chicken_Chaser, a guardsman.
MCPilgrim, a guardsman.
Guardsman: You get a set of armor and weapons and watch over the town at night or in times of high alert. You aren't expected to stand around town doing nothing, however, if you get bored of guarding, you can do other things in town at night, but while on duty, stay in town in case you are needed.
Farmer: Just what it sounds like. This is basically a side job, just tend the farm when it needs to be.
Hunter: Hunt mobs during the day and night. Day meaning sheer sheep, kill pigs and cows, etc, night, collect gunpowder and other mob drops.
Miner: Of course we'll have need of miners, but this also will be a side job. We will only send you to mine if we are in dire need of something, but I don't want ten miners bringing the town tons of diamond because that's not what the town is meant to be.
Lumberjack: Also a side job, but more work. Just what it sounds, cut trees outside of the town area.
Aside from the basic no killing or stealing from our residents and guests, we have a few rules.
-Do not build or otherwise alter the town without consulting Spacewolf78 first.
-Under no circumstances should you cut down the trees close to the town. If you need wood, seek it elsewhere.
-Construction should fit our building style, use wood. If you are unsure about your building, ask Spacewolf.
-Be friendly to one another. If someone needs a piece of bread, let them have some.
-If you have a job, do it. If you'd like to do something else, you can be assigned a new position, but if you're a chef, don't go cutting down trees.
-We are a peaceful town. Do not instigate fights with other residents, and especially not members of other factions.
