Bastion is a well-rounded player experience, Donators get some perks but isn't game breaking, the community is fun and fair Staff is a riot to be around. All around a great server cmon and join if you haven't already!
This server is, by far, the best I've ever played on.
That sounds hyperbolic, I know, but you won't find a nicer, more comfortable community anywhere else. Everyone is exceptionally friendly, including the staff.
It's not just the community, either. BastionMC has a perfect mix of vanilla and plugin, allowing for an incredibly enjoyable survival minecraft experience. Money is actually worth something on Bastion, and you choose how you want to acquire it. Mining, fishing, and even doing odd jobs for other players - BastionMC's unique plugins allow for interesting gameplay that not only preserves that feeling of vanilla survival, but promotes the closeness of its community as well.
There's so much to do, see, and enjoy on this server. It's the reason I've stuck around on it, and it's why you should too.
The Owner, Final_Architect, was kind enough to share with me his recipe for Butterscotch Pudding, and, after trying it, can say that it is honestly one of the best I have ever had.
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups whole milk
4 large egg yolks
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, room temperature
2 tablespoons Scotch
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 bananas, sliced
1/2 cup English toffee bits
Stir 3/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in heavy medium saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and boil without stirring until syrup turns deep amber color, occasionally brushing down sides of pan with wet pastry brush and swirling pan. Remove from heat. Add cream (mixture will bubble vigorously). Stir until smooth. Set caramel sauce aside.
Mix brown sugar, cornstarch, and salt in heavy medium saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk. Stir over medium-low heat until mixture thickens and boils, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat. Whisk in caramel sauce.
Whisk egg yolks in large bowl to blend. Gradually whisk 1 cup warm caramel mixture into yolks. Gradually whisk yolk mixture back into caramel mixture in saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium heat. Gradually whisk in butter, Scotch, and vanilla.
Divide pudding among 8 parfait glasses. Chill until cold, at least 6 hours and up to 1 day. Top puddings with banana slices, whipped cream, and toffee bits.
After trying it one rainy Wednesday afternoon I can say that it has simply blown me away in every aspect.
What can I say about this server that hasnt already been said. It is an amazing experience for me, love the people and the staff. The custom plugins (fishing & mining). I love survival minecraft but bastion adds to it, to make the whole experience even more enriching, and the community that I`ve seen evolve and grow during my time on here, is an absolutely amazing community.
