Half of you probably realised that I haven't been on in a few weeks. Well, I switched to Linux Mint over Ubuntu and kept using the old IP when I was trying to connect. I finally made it back onto the server around a week ago. I noticed the following. First, there's barely any players online. That's regardless of what time I play at. The most activity I've seen in the week has been two players. I thought that with all the improvements and whatnot that more players would be active then anything. I suffice to say I have been proven wrong. Secondly, there's little-to-no activity on the website besides myself and the moderators. There's around four white-list threads sitting in limbo at this time. Second, why all the buildings now? We're in the middle of trying to come up with new lore for the entire server, but time is apparently better spent making frivolous buildings that, although remain quite cool and amazing(Kudos Shark), serve no purpose but to shelter Zombies and Creepers in their unlit depths while taking up vast amounts of space and looking pretty. I ask: Why did you use MCEdit to make the buildings(It's easy to tell, ie. The docks "Supports" don't reach the bottom of the ocean) when a more fun and engaging RP experience would have been to hire contractors/companies to do it in-game? Also, I've not seen or heard from AzorThorm in a long time. He is a good person, but he has gone off the face of the earth. Spark, you're doing a good job at it alone, but you need to get some additional help involved. I'd like to recommend Sharkgrin, she's done a lot.
Disclaimer: this post is in no way meant to belittle or shame the server.
I will not be returning. The site will stay up for as long as it can, but I will not be taking care of it. If someone wishes to assume control of the website they should PM me here on the MC Forums and I can have it transferred to their ucOz account.

I hope the Brutii have left their mark on Immortalus.
Why do things small when you can make them great?
I certainly agree in the case of player-ran projects to them directing such.
However in the case of a capital city, made to host the baseline of major RP activities and also.. To look like a capital, an architectural reference.. Things can be done better and faster using this tool. Besides, I remember clearly that certain people were quite bothered with the large-scale building projects I started back in the old city. Often saying : This is not a freebuild server.
There's your answer. This ain't no freebuild server, thus, roleplaying is a priority. Building the capital by hand would have taken months of dedicated work from at least 10 to 20 players, whithout including contingency and planning. Roleplaying the construction? Add at least twice that time. Would people get tired? YES, REALLY FAST. 100% sure of it. Especially considering that building repetitive things like a wall or a cave or even terraforming the whole valley is NOT fun in the long run.
So yes. I used MC edit. In the objective of sparing time.
Of course, some people pulled out magnificient projects like the reproduction of LOTR's world in insanely short times with great effect. But they themselves admitted dedicating most of their time on it, exit employment, life priorities and sleeping. I sincerely doubt everyone is capable of pulling that kind of feat without some 3rd party help. In fact, even the project I just cited used MCE to cover things such as caves and less intricate landscaping.
Oh yes they're useless.
RPGs could live without the bells and whistles.
Monsters could be numbers and letters.
Players could be numerical character sheets.
My kitchen could be a kettle above a fire.
But when it looks pleasing to the eye, it's a lot more encouraging and immersive for Roleplay.

The servers not dead. I've said this before. people have just been taking a break or have been waiting for the map to be finished. But since leaving the unfinished map up and keeping people from build isn't the best way to keep people playing we have switched maps. We are now using a new map for the time being as a sort of prologue to the RP. Unfortantly as of right now the server provider may be having troubles because the server doesn't seem to be working. But I'm sure its only happening because of the 1.8 update coming soon.
