I am also looking for roleplay servers, none which have Towny/Multi-Hub/"Lite-Roleplay". If any are still around, could somebody respond to this thread? I am also looking for a roleplay server with a whitelist/greylist.
It DOES have Towny for now, but the devs are looking to replace it for a custom settlement-based plugin as war and 'conquest' are one of their big selling points.
That said, these things are NOT mandatory by any stretch of the word and you can just be a Knight of an Order looking to protect the land or a wandering merchant looking to make your living among the people of Arkacia if you like. That said, even though RP is optional according to the rules, just about everyone is doing it and there's nothing stopping you from creating your own settlement if you please (although there are some REALLY good ones already in the works if making your own is too much work for you and there's nothing wrong with that by the way)
That said, though the terrain is custom, it isn't policed. You can mine wherever you want and break whatever you want so long as you're not at spawn or in another player's domain. There are also a boatload ofinteresting plugins and features and the staff are working literally the hardest to add more and more as time moves on.
It's a wonderful server and I love it like crazy (and I"m usually the one that hops from server to server out of boredom) but I can understand how it wouldn't be for everyone. That said, PLEASE try it for yourself! Also make money so you can buy stuff from me. Remember how I mentioned being a wandering merchant as an option? Yeah... that's what I'm doing actually. xD
Oh, and uh, there's no whitelist involved, so that may turn you away. Just so you know.
