I had this idea, and I think its a pretty good one:
An rp server with spleef instead of !roll!
I am an enormous nerd, and I do LARP (live action role play), and I think that the same idea could be used in Minecraft! It's very simple:
Things there are:
money is dealt with in the economy section, and the crown is the currency.
Goods: these have to do with the economy
these are somewhat simple:
gold, iron, coal, cloth/plant material/herbs.
professions: these are dealt with in the professions section
this is done by deleting the ground from under the target's feet.
Things there aren't:
building of any type
this would make the server not as role play-ish, and kill the spleef.
these should be there, but would make everything to hard.
supposed to be like an LARPG, so these are a definite no. This also kills races and classes.
There will be four mines on the map: going there will instantly get you up to 4 materials in your inventory
you can only hold 3 materials in total at a time, like 4 gold, 2 gold 2 iron, one of each, etc.
there will be a mill near the middle of the map
at the mill you can combine any 1 resource (except coal) with 1 coal and 3 crowns to make a packaged version of that material.
eg: 1 gold +3 crowns + 1 coal= 1 packaged gold.
You can hold as many packaged materials as you want.
you can sell to other players, or to one of the four mines.
the mine that makes the material you're selling will pay 4 crowns, and all other mines pay 5 crowns.
mines will ONLY BUY PACKAGED MATERIALS
these can hold 5 materials instead of just 3.
they can repair blunted weapons:
a weapon is blunted if it kills a person, and that weapon cannot kill until it is fixed.
to repair a blunted weapon, they need to use up 1 packaged iron.
I currently have neither a map nor server.
Because this will be so heavily based on trust, everyone will need to be recommended by someone. All forum ops can recommend you, as can other VERY big names (people with over 400 posts). I can recommend you, as can other people who have been recommended. We can't go over 32 players, so first come first serve. Anyone who helps out by making a custom server, a map, or hosting will automatically get in. if this server becomes a reality, it won't always be up. It will happen in games that would last 5-6 hours.
If I was unclear on something, feel free to point it out, I will so my best to clarify!
EDIT- I put this in mapping and modding because it is not yet a server. It will have to be moved if it gets a server.
