Kingdoms at war is a new server, running factions mod on Minecraft 1.5 with bukkit support.
We have Physical shop locations for you to buy and sell (trading is done with gold ingots for currency)
The /set home feature is avaliable but there is no /spawn feature. So you can set one home and no more. So there are players that must carry goods openly through out enemy / factionless territory.
No items have been disabled, you can use TNT, Boats, Minecarts, Fire etc. Nothing has been removed as I think all these things are very much a part of the game.
Currently there are a few factions that seem to be up and coming, making very magnificant bases although, it's still new noone is completely entrenched yet.
If you're unfamiliar with factions, it's a mod that allows you to join or create a group that can hold and defend land.
As well as make friend or foe with other Factions.
Each person gets a maximum of 10 power and a low of -10 power.
The ammount of power you have determines how many slots of land you can hold (15 x 15 each)
Enemys cannot destroy on your land, although they can attack you. So you defensive structures such as walls and towers cannot simply be removed. (although TNT cannons can still fire into the zones and cause damage)
When you die you loose 2 power, so if you land ammount becomes higher than your power, enemys may claim some land off of you.
Every 50 miniutes you will regain 1 power. So if you're able to kill enough of your enemys quickly enough you should be able to make claims on there land.
Chests are NOT protected, although a chest in an enemy zone can be extremely if not impossible to reach, making a lot of groups spend a fair ammount of time on creating a vault.
Things we wish to add in the future:
Player run shops
More citys with different shops in each of them (several citys or ourposts have been created you may notice) Each city selling different items at different prices. ie TNT may be 15 gold ingots a peice in spawn town, but only 8 somewhere else. Prompting players to travel and colonize around these towns.
Jails (Having issues with this mod in the new Bukkit) Instead of kicking players for silly things such as logging / telporting during combat, begging Admins for items, Spamming chat etc there will be several prisons throughout the world.
And ALWAYS open to suggestion, although I have been asked a lot to add MCMMO I will not... I don't think it's fair that someone could level up ad become so OP that newer players don't have a chance. I don't think minecraft should be about Over powering your self through monotonous leveling up.. I think it should be about creative engineering and ingenuity
