Me and my brother share a username but we use 2 different computers.  I want to make a server that we both can build on but I don't want to go through all the hassle of setting one up if we can't both be on it at the same time.  Will he have to purchase a separate account in order for it to work?  

Thanks!

Put the server in offline mode, and have him go into offline mode, so he logs in as Player and you use your username. This should work.

Wait, how do you go into offline mode as a player?

The only LEGAL way is to purchase another account.

Using a single account for more than one person is piracy. As a result won't allow you to play online.

Once you buy a second account you will have no issues playing online together in any server or on a private home server.
