This server was an idea between me and some friends which we started on a month or 2 ago. We have been working quite intensely to get everything to work before we opened the server up for the public. And now we think we are ready.
The idea behind The Shire was that you arrived in an old abandoned prison cell after falling through a hole in the ground on one of your adventures. There you have to fight your way out through a maze filled with monsters to get back to freedom.
When you finally managed to fight your way out you could choose between 4 towns to be your home town and then you can choose which profession you want to work as. And the more you worked the higher up in the ranks you would get, unlocking crafting of more advanced items, wearing more powerful armor, create parties to play with friends, create your own guild and finally create your own town!
But then we figured that only having this would get a bit boring after a while. So we added an evil side! You can also start as a thief, without a town, and work yourself up the ranks the evil way to finally create an evil town to gather all the thieves, assassins and gangsters together to battle the good towns for control over this world!
We have a special economy which dynamically changes prices on items based on supply and demand which means you can be lucky to find cheap items to sell, or an item which have a big demand so you can sell it with big profit! You also have the possibility to hire builders, engineers, architects or interior designers to help you out. I have thought about adding the possibility to buy/sell P2P via a web interface but that is not added yet.
You can buy your own plots outside the City Walls, or you can rent a luxurious apartment within the walls for a higher price but for better protection.
All of this is added and the server isn't even official yet, so as time goes and we have a chance to improve the system you can expect quite magnificent things from the future!
We have plans for several events, including a drop-party every friday, PvP Tournaments, Wars between towns, etc. But they are not active yet for several reasons but mainly that we have been focusing on getting the server up and running and ensuring that everyone have a problem free time online.
