We at Blackstone are an economy-based, RP-optional community. Like most of the best places on earth, we enjoy fine wine, a good cigar, and the desire to punch you square in the kidney. Both of them actually. Please join the forums at wargodsmc.net before playing as you will be rankless and have no building rights otherwise.
Governmentally, our server is run as follows: 3 "provinces"; Lavenderonia, Ragusa, and Tafaldaysia The Spawn area (marked by rings in the sky) is more or less a "free-build" area, although there will be no protection within it. Outside of the spawn area one must get a permit before doing things such as mining, farming, and such. This is why it is encouraged to join a province, as the people within the province will help you through tough times to buy your land. If you say "Cah-caw!" in chat, people will know that you are insane and should be treated as such.
Owners of each province are as follows: JamesLWillisIII: Chancellor of Tafaldaysia (also server owner) Yippingbyrd: Chancellor of Ragusa Lily_Flowers: Chancellor of Lavenderonia
_______________________________________________________ Province Info
Tafaldaysia is owned by the server owner and him [sic] waifu (o so kawai!!!1one). Although "the Royal family" manages it, it is anything but classy. You're going to spend a lot of time rolling around in mud, punching cops in the face on one of your many LSD-induced trips if you join this server. Not too many cities or beautiful structures, but definitely the most industrious group of people (unverified).
(Something something city under construction something)
Ragusa is the Communist province. I know what you're thinking, "zomg komunistz r evil diz is amerkah land of da free", but listen up. Ragusa pays for your permits and gives you land plots for free. Well, not quite. You are expected to hold a "job" in Ragusa - be it lumberjacking off, getting stone(d), or becoming a designated contractor/designer. Now you may be think "zomg great", but listen up. Again. We're sarcastic assholes in Ragusa, each and every one of us. We're the ones telling you there's a secret city under that lava lake, or telling you to jump. But, hey, survival of the fittest.
Arguably the biggest community, they definitely have the most cities (51,204,240 at last count). They're the most "RP"-oriented of the three, although none of the provinces really are. Uh... What else. I think they like cookies. Or phallic objects. One of the two.

Some things to note
[*:14ixbk0p]Spawn building isn't finished, so don't be whack about it. The other buildings are done, though.
[*:14ixbk0p]Inside spawn, you can mine, hunt, and take all the delicious wheat that you needs (replant though, don't be a douche). However, outside of spawn you need the permit for the corresponding province (Ragusa is NW-W, Tafaldaysia is NE-E, Lavenderonia is SW-S, roughly)
