Imperium is an all new original 1.2.2 server. The idea is you create your nation (or join someone else's), grow your nation, fight wars (if you want), grow your economy, and build your cities!
We use our discord server as our website, this is where trade agreements, war declarations, treaties, etc are made. We use towny to make nations as well. We also are not pay to win at all, everyone has an equal chance as we have no . We also use an actual earth map, can be viewed on the dynmap.
The server'-specific features are interesting. Diseases have craftable cures, and thirst doesn't necessarily need a water bottle to quench. A good chunk of vanilla minecraft content is disallowed by the server's rules so as to keep with history, which is supposed to be the server's main draw. That said, the features the server adds to the game more than outweigh what the server doesn't allow, so it's a fun experience overall, especially if you're into old world history. Not that old, as the server is based on 900AD earth, but still.
Might throw in pics of other nations if Messiah keeps showing off other nations kek.
People are nice to each other on this server as long as the rules are followed, both the players and the owner have little tolerance for rules breaking.
Though it's also important to state that wars (pvp) can be declared for just about any reason. The server is designed to punish warmongers (i.e. staying in a constant state of war and just challenging everybody lol), but it's not hard to get in a fight, so long as you announce that you wanna fight somebody first lol.
This server relies on its Discord for things like that, the link to which is in the server via the /rules command.
