I apologize if this is the wrong area to post a suggestion of this nature in, if not, please direct me to the correct sub-forum.
Anyways, onto the idea. This is a suggestion for a server host who wants to run a unique server for their players.
Suggested players: 40-60, whitelisted would work best
The server in a sentence: The players have to run a country/metropolis, with a King and his Advisers managing affairs, such as construction, resources, and rebellion.
Elaborated: The goal for players is to gain as much power as possible. Instead of being a number recorded in logs, power is self-awarded. If you're King, you're at the top. Doesn't that feel great? The power, the assets? The thing is, EVERYONE wants to be King. So there are Advisers, loyal (or maybe not :wink.gif: ) to the King. You want to be in a high as a rank as possible. The King has the ability to give orders of any kind, so he can choose to be fair, loving of people, a tyrant, or just make wacky laws (e.x. no eating mushroom soup unless you wear an iron helmet).
However, if you're not Royalty, you have to fare in the city. You can either be a loyal subject, and maybe even work your way up to a Guard, or an Adviser the next time elections come around (if the King allows elections). Or maybe you're the sneaky rouge, living on the streets, stealing from the street vendors while their backs are turned. Or maybe you're the rebellious warmonger, the soon-to-be killer of the King. Or maybe you're the shopkeeper, trying to make a profit to stay alive.
To sum it up, the goal is to watch your city as it grows and flourishes (or crumbles to the ground). Everybody will be responsible as a citizen. The King has to make sure the city runs, and that he stays in power. The farmers have to make sure everyone is fed. The guards have to make sure that the walls don't explode every night because of creepers, and that the citizens are safe. The way I see it, is that it's an experiment in Minecraft civilization.
Feedback: I'd LOVE to hear what other people say about this, and also tell me if there's anything I can clarify.
If you like the idea, feel free to use it, it's not like I've copyrighted it or anything. Though I would appreciate it if you PMed me, since I'd love to get involved with that.
Thanks you for reading!
