There are only 2 rules: Don't cheat, and don't be a ****. Pretty much common sense.
Open Realm Craft is a small server meant to be optimized for fun. That means:
No forced sign-up to a forum
No application just to play
No oppressive rules
No excess of protected areas
There are 8 towns with a combined total of 12 people.
There are roads that connect every town.
You are not forced to pay a fee to start a town, anyone can.
The gold-based economy allows money to be actually tangible and feasible to earn through mining or selling items. No need to worry about having money be worthless, because gold already has actual value in the game itself. The economy is iConomy with the Gringotts plugin, (also Chestshop and Vault) to mix all the benefits of a physical currency with all the benefits of plugins like iConomy.
There is an arena that has two modes: PVP and Jousting. We use the Jouster plugin so players can use lances to actually joust each other!
LWC allows you to lock your doors, chests, or anything else that needs locking so no one steals your stuff.
I joined this server over a week ago and I'm having a blast on it. I've met many people with interesting towns and I've been apart of a diplomatic meeting between two of said towns Oppurnicus and Elsworth. I have also formed my own town, Splinter Bay, which I am proud to call home.
If anybody is looking for a nice community with lax rules, I highly recommend this server.
