Welcome to Halcyon, a unique factions server with a focus on creating a realistic world, modeled by civilizations and societies.Our server is based on one that existed over a year ago. Our goal in creating this server was to recreate this semi-RPG environment to urge our players to develop civilized and advanced factions. The whole world was their place to build a nation, a republic, an empire from scratch! How do we do this?
Anyone can create a faction!
HOWEVER... factions who create a charter on our forums and develop their cities more like an actual city, a SOCIETY, will earn special perks like elevators, gates, bridges, to help further develop their cities
You are REWARDED for building beautiful cities, sprawling metropolises - you are NOT rewarded for attacking every faction you find... But, why not do both? Create your own Roman Empire! Create wealthy cities and conquer all of your foes!
An economy based on GOLD! On this server, you can't teleport to spawn. You must take the dangerous journey to walk there and sell your gold...
Those who build closer will be at more risk for being raided, but can get to spawn to sell their gold MUCH quicker... Those who settle farther out have to take a riskier journey to profit. There is a balance in this world that will favor the strongest, most intelligent societies!
Ender chests, weapons and armor enchanting are all disabled. No ultra-safe place to store your goods and never run the risk. No OP enchants on your weapons or armor. Your success is based off of your skill and ingenuity, not who spent the most time sitting in front of a grinder.
You don't get OP stuff for donating. You don't get OP stuff for voting. You, and everyone else, must work to earn. Only the civilizations that work hard will "earn hard"! There are no secrets to this. The winners win, and the losers will lose.
This is a serious server. Nature has its way of dealing with the 1337-pvper, hole building raiders that blindly attack everyone. If this sounds like you, you will not last very long on the World of Halcyon. Only the societies that found their civilization and through ingenuity and strategy, create the perfect nation!Join the WORLD OF HALCYON and create your own civilization today!
Maltier Empire is currently on the server. It seems quite good, but theres only 1, or 2 of the nations that aren't filled with immature 12 year olds. Despite tthat besides a bit of lag issues (Currently getting resolved) it's a decent server to get started on
