    [release]

    Goose’s Faction Server is a Minecraft server where there is a major focus on a player driven world. This means that rules are kept to a minimum, and I let the plugins handle restrictions.
    The main plugin on this server is the Faction’s plugin. It allows you to team up with friends, or just plain strangers, and form a faction of your liking. You can claim land, and battle other factions over their land.
    This server is Minecraft survival at its best. Do what you must to survive, or work your way to the top and claim the title of Most Powerful and Prosperous Faction!
    This is not a purely PVP server: While PvP is an aspect of this server, don’t think that it’s all you need to do. You can build massive cities, trade with other factions, become the lord of the nether, or whatever you wish.

    Please keep in mind that this server is not a protected build server. Anything you build runs the risk of being destroyed by an enemy faction for whatever reason they see fit. Be prepared to defend your creations.
    [/release]


    [release]

    The admins of this server are players just like you and just want to have fun. Do not fear the admins, but please do respect them. If you are unsure about something, just ask an admin or even the players themselves. The following are the rules of the server:

    No eyesores: This means things like 1x1 block towers reaching to the sky, pixel art, genitalia, random lava/water flows, or “borg cubes” (basically anything that’s just a box without any detail). The general rule of thumb is to just give your buildings detail and make them
    somewhat attractive.

    No water/lava TNT shielding: Don’t cover your walls or buildings with water or lava with the express purpose of TNT shielding. Underwater bases are fine. For clarification, read this post: http://www.facepunch.com/threads/107...1#post33207635

    No Hacking or Exploiting: This should be obvious. If you’re caught using exploits or hacking you’ll be banned on the spot. (While I’m not very sure if Mineprint is still around, but it is also a hack.

    No using Nether Portals as inescapable traps: At least provide enough space for the person to return back through the nether portal. You can create a room that they can’t leave from, but give them enough room to re-enter the portal.

    No Mobtraps: If you fail to follow this rule, your faction's bank will be cleared, and the chunks with the trap will be regened. Repeating the offense will earn you a ban.
    [/release]

    The Ender dragon has been slain by the Imperium Empire, ushering in the new age. They have brought back the egg from the End Realm as a trophy, a bold decision considering not much is known about the artifact.
    [/release]

    [release]

    You have a chance to create a featured faction! Featured factions get their own banner and description in this thread. To have your Faction featured, it must have 5 or more members. When you reach this, send me a PM and I will create a banner for you. Make sure to include the primary, and secondary colors of your banner, and what you want your emblem to be (out of minecraft item graphics). I will also be holding a competition. Every month, I will be switching the server banner. If your city is the most attractive out of all the other cities, it will be featured in the banner for a month. Competition dead line for next banner: December 22nd. To be eligible, you must be a Featured Faction.

    Mob traps will not yield anything: YOU, the player, must kill mobs for them to drop anything. This is to make gathering war resources a challenge.

    You need Cubits (Money) in your faction bank to purchase land: Cubits are the server currency. They are obtained by killing hostile mobs and by killing players that have money on them. You drop 25% of the money on you if you die. You can deposit your money into your faction’s bank, but only faction admins and moderators can withdraw money. The first chunk of land costs 20 Cubits to claim, and goes up by 10 every new chunk. Use /f help while in-game for more information.

    This is a legit server: I will not be spawning in any items for people or teleporting people to places because they are lost. The only things created in creative mode are the spawn ruin, and the ruins for other things like the vampire shrines and the Word Walls.
    [/release]

    [release]

    Factions: Learn more about factions here: http://massivecraft.com/plugins/factions

    Bookworm: Lets you write in books. Use /bookworm on a book to start writing in it. For more information: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/fun...ks-1000.22159/

    CombatTag: Stops players from logging out in the middle of PVP. It keeps the player’s character in-game for about 15 seconds.

    CreeperHeal: Heals Creeper holes on dirt, sand, and gravel over time.

    iConomy: The workhorse behind the server’s economy system. Use /money to check your balance. /money help for more information

    LavaForge: Returns the bucket back to you after using lava as a source of heat for forges.

    LoginMessage: MOTD plugin. Please read for important information.

    LoreTime: Plugin that displays the in-game date of the world. Uses the Elder Scrolls calendar.

    Map Clone: Allows you to clone maps and give them to other people. You can also use /mzoom to zoom the map in when you create it.
    Use this crafting recipe to clone a map:

    YOU MUST SHIFT CLICK THE 2 DUPLICATED MAPS OR IT WILL NOT WORK.

    MCBans: Ban database plugin. Helps the admins keep tabs on possible trouble makers and also helps keep out the known hackers. (I realize this is a opinion based ban plugin, but it is fairly well managed and works.)

    MoneyDrop: Caused monsters to drop currency in the form of gold bars. Be careful, anyone can pick these gold bars up once they are dropped.

    noEnderman: Simply blocks endermen from picking up blocks.

    NoGrind: Makes conventional mob farms useless. The player must kill the mobs directly to get drops.

    ObsidianDestroy: Makes obsidian no longer an invincible block. It takes 3 TNT strikes in 10 minutes for the obsidian to be destroyed.

    Showcase: Lets you make shops with floating items on half blocks. Shift click a half block with the item you want to sell in your hand to start the shop making process.

    Lumberjack: Causes trees to be chopped from the top down, no matter where you chop them.

    Vampires: You can be a vampire! Check this guide for more information: http://massivecraft.com/plugins/vampire

    ChannelChat: Simple chat channel plugin that works flawlessly with factions. Info here: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/ch...s-permissions/

    Very Sticky Pistons: Info here: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/very-sticky-pistons/

    TreeAssist: Makes leaf decay have a chance to plant a sapling under it.

    RandomDisks: Randomizes music disks that spawn in chests that are in newly generated strongholds.

    Ports: Allows admins to define teleportation areas. It is only used to define "ships" for fast travel between cities that have docks and ships.

    The Thu'um: Used to allow Skyrim "Dragonshouts" for the chosen Dragonborn. Dragonborn must find word walls that contain the shouts before they can't use them.

    You don't HAVE to pick a faction. You could create your own if you'd like, or be a loner (but this means you can't claim and protect your things)

    Read the Factions plugin Player Guide: http://mcteam.org/plugins/factions/

    It explains the advantages of being in a large faction.

    If you're just an adept builder, that's ok. There might be a faction who needs a good builder, as many of us have run out of ideas.

    But go ahead and give me your mc account name and I'll add it after I get back from work.

    I don't believe so. Your land would just be unclaimed if you disbanded your loner faction.

    I'll put a suggestion in towards the plugin dev and see if he can make a Merge command for the plugin, where if two plugin admins agree to merge factions, they can, keeping all the land that both factions have claimed.

    Wait, or do you mean if you've just built on it without claiming it?

    Yes, you can claim your land if you didn't claim it prior to being in a faction.

    Slimeballs as currency would be interesting, but I still want people to be able to set up chest shops and such, and that requires a currency plugin.
