The Spire is now online, More event locations have been made, we're waiting for more members now, once we get enough active members we can start these events! Send in an application (See below for how to apply)
What is the Spire?
The Spire is a unique server that tries to cater to both creative builders and PvP'ers.The Spire is unique in the sense that there are in-game factions which settle on opposite sides of "The free for all zone" once factions get bigger, users can opt to start one of the other two factions or even create their own.
The free-for-all zone is 500 x 500 block square, there are no rules here, you are free to murder and pillage all who enter. killing another player will drop a head, those heads can in turn be cashed in to an admin for prizes such as teleports and items, if you gather enough heads you can even buy custom terraformed lands to build with.
Currently this all seems like its geared towards PvP'ers, and yes a large portion is, but there will be events ran by our "Game Managers" or "GM's" events such as PvP tournaments, building competitions, races, and many other exciting events.
As a builder you can be sure that anything outside of the free-for-all zone is safe. any "crimes" commited here are punishable.
How to Apply:
You can send an email to [email protected] with the title application, send us your username and minecraft forum username and you will be whitelisted promptly.
You can also post your username here and we will whitelist you as well.
When you are whitelisted you will be put into a faction by an admin, this is to keep the teams balanced. if you choose to be factionless remember that being factionless means you cannot participate in any team events.
Some exceptions will apply, suppose a friend of yours was placed in the red team, you can request to be placed with your friend. If you truly dislike your faction you can leave it at any time, but to join another you must have the permission of that factions leader as well as that of an admin.
Mods on The Spire:
Faction mod of some sort
Head Hunter (This allows me to control head drop rates.)
and maybe a few others to keep things interesting.
Server Ranks are in order of lowest to highest:
Acolyte (Starting Rank)
Apprentice (Trusted Rank)
Elite (Experienced Rank 1)
Master (Senior/Experienced Rank 2)
Grand Master (For those who greatly prove their skills)
Spire Master (Reserved for the Owner and Co-owners)
Admins and GM's are void of the ranks, though most of the time they will be master or above.
as a general rule ask someone more experienced if you have any questions.
Respect the staff and other members, Anyone caught speaking about minority groups, sexual orientation, religion, etc. in a derogatory manner will be dealt with accordingly.
Griefing the hard work of others isn't nice and isn't tolerated (Unless of course you are in the free-for-all zone)
If you notice any server bugs, or its not running, or something happens and there isn't an admin online, you can send an email to [email protected], or if you have any concerns in general you can send an email there.
List of Factions:
Red Faction (Names will change)
Blue Faction (Names will change)
How to Create a Faction:
To create a faction, you will need at least 8 members, including yourself, as part of this faction. Each member must agree to this. In addition, a Spire Master must approve of your concept and faction.Once you have created a faction you get to choose a color for your new faction and also claim land as your factions main base. Your faction will also be officially included in events and games.
Server IP: thespire.mymc.io
If you have any questions feel free to post below!
I've realized that maybe the application was difficult to receive and might have been off putting. I've changed how to apply, simply send an email to [email protected] with the subject "Application" make sure to tell me your Minecraft forum username, your Minecraft username, and a bit about yourself. why you wish to join the spire, what skills you feel are relevant and anything else you think would help your application.
If you are uncomfortable with sending an email, you can post your application in this topic, of course that means that everyone will be able to see it, I will PM you to let you know if it was accepted or not.
My Minecraft username is the same as my username on this forum. I would like to join the Spire because most faction servers suffer from inactive players and faction inflation, having only two factions at least to begin with should be interesting. I'm an excellent miner, a budding architect, and a crack-shot with a bow. I think that because of this, I'd be a boon to whichever faction I'm assigned.
Welcome to the Spire Terashi, I'll have you whitelisted asap, you are going to be assigned to the blue faction.
The spire is slowly growing! I hope to see more applicationsin the following days, We've done some major terraforming here and there, me and the other admins have started work on a few events too for when we get a good community rolling.
The spire is still looking for new members though!
I've updated the first post with screenshots, I'll keep adding more as we make more things, there's still a lot of things made that I can't show yet (They are for future events) I've also posted the server on a listing site, the link is http://minecraft-server-list.com/server/203643/ Leave a vote if you can!
