Most hunger games servers you login with a load of players, and simply go out and kill each other, try to survive; maybe get an iron sword. Or perhaps join an arena and run away from other players..depending on your play style. This is fun, but after a few times it just becomes a bit..well, pointless?
There is no back-story, no meaning, nothing to fight for!It's not like the Hunger Games at all.
To be like the Hunger Games you need the back story, you need a reason to fight.
You need the districts, the training academy, the mentor, the game makers. To be a true hunger games experience, you need to be IN PANEM!
And Project Panem, will create the real hunger games experience.
The server will be an accurate re-creation of Panem,
the world in which the Hunger Games novels are set.
Players will be able to choose which district they live in, and depending on which they choose, they'll be able to train their skills there, buy (or build!) a house, live a normal life in a district with hundreds of other players.
But there's no fun in that. So, every (timeframe undecided) staff will host a reaping in each district, in which 2 members of each district will be chosen.
They will be taken, by minecart?, to the training academy in the capitol.
There they can get in some last minute training that may just save their life. They'll get to talk with a mentor from their district ( a previous victor )
Then, they are thrust into the Hunger Games! They'll be flown over by hovercraft to the arena, and placed into a tube ready for the games to begin.
This is where the fight begins, at first players will rush for the bounty to be found at the cornucopia, there will be a bloodbath.
If you die, then you lose all your money, all your hard earned belongings. And you start a new life on the server. You can choose a new district?Currently undecided.
If you are the last survivor in the wilderness of the arena, you win huge riches and you get to live in the Victor's Village and become a Mentor, you'll never have to fight again..or at least, probably not. (quarter quell reference)

(Reaping, Training Academy, Train Ride, Mentors)
+ And so much more!
The Project's Aim is to create an accurate representation of Panem
The server will be run on a high-end dedicated machine.
For the first weeks, possibly months the server will only be open to those who applied to help with the
creation of the server.
Upon release to the public, there will be donation rewards to pay for the server costs.
The server is not a dead-end project, the server will be completed and it will be released.
I will begin to organise the server and the building teams once we have a decent number of applicants
If you're inspired to join, keep reading!
The Map We'll Be Working From:
· Create every District in Panem, excluding 13 for obvious reasons.
· Create the Capitol
· Create a Variety of Arenas for the Hunger Games
· Decide (by poll) on the full system and workings of the server, including ranks, permissions and skills for each district.
These are Ranks and their duties for the server's creation only, the ranks will be changed completely upon the release to the public.
First of all, the majority of the workforce will be Builders.
Builder(16 Spots available)
Builders do what they are instructed to do. They will be guided by architects and the Mayor for their district.
Builders must have good building skill, and be able to prove it!
Builders will only be able to build where they are allowed by the mayor.
Builders will specialize in one district, but they may help in other places.
Architects only take orders from their District Leader (mayor)
Architects design and build the larger buildings and they will create examples for the smaller buildings, such as houses, then the Builders will copy their style.
Architects main job is giving the Builders ideas and designs.
Architects should still help out with any jobs, no matter how small.
Architects must show exceptional building skill, and be good leaders.
They should have good english grammar and spelling.
Plugin Dev/Manager (1 spot available)
Must have some experience with developing plugins
Must be able to manage plugins from a panel

Example of Building Work:
Your Skills and Strengths\ Why should we accept you?:
Thank you for applying to Project Panem, we aim to reply to your application asap, at least within 24 hours!
Position You Are Applying For: I'm applying for staff on the server, once it's completed. But I also can do some building (I'm not the best though). I could also be a district leader.
Hunger Games Knowledge: I'm an expert on the hunger games! I've read all three of the books multiple times, I've watched the movie, and I'm going to see Catching Fire when it comes out.
Where would you prefer to work?: If you choose me as a district leader, then I would prefer to be the mayor of districts 1-4, but I wouldn't mind that much if you put me somewhere else.
Minecraft Experience: I've played minecraft for around two years now, so I'm very experienced.
Example of Building Work: I don't have any pictures, sorry.
Your Skills and Strengths\ Why should we accept you?: You should accept me because I'm funny, smart, and nice. I'm also responsible and mature. I will play a lot on the server, and advertise a ton. I can pretty much do anything you want me to do, and I won't mind as long as I have someone to chat to while I'm doing it. You can expect a lot of me and I won't let you down. I'm a decent builder, so even if that's not why you accept me, I can still do some work here and there. I have great ideas for roleplay servers like this. I'm also very fair when it comes to punishing people.
Hey Holly here! I originally applied for researcher, but seems like I'm needed here. Here's my new app:
Username: like I said earlier, my name is Holly, and my IGN is HollybreezeTS3.
Age: I'm 14 years old.
Time zone/country: U.S. Eastern time- I'm American and I'm proud of it!
Position applying for: I think the position of Builder is good enough for me.
Hunger Games Knowledge: I'm glad you asked-- I've read all the books a thousand times and watched the movie a hundred more times. Best book, best movie, and best ideas, EVER. You could say I live, sleep, eat and breathe the Hunger Games. I own all the books, and I have a Netflix account so the movie shouldn't be a problem.
Where would you prefer to work: I'd like to work in the Capitol, but again, if you think I'm better suited to someplace else, then I'll work there, too.
Minecraft Experience: I've been playing Minecraft since Sept. of 2011. I have never had the opportunity to be staff on a server, but there's a first for everything, and I'm hoping this will be my chance.
Example of Building work: I play Minecraft on a Mac, and I don't know how to take screenshots on Apple computers. So unfortunately, I cant show you pictures of my work. I do create modern furniture, though. Using hoppers, I created an invention called the Restaurant-On-A- Wall. Now that I think about it, the Restaurant-On-A-Wall would be perfect for the training center when they serve lunch to the tributes. Maybe I could visit the server and show you my work sometime.
Your skills and Strenghts/why should we pick you: I have good English skills, (i dun Tipe like diz), I don't use caps and I never curse. I'm supposedly a pretty friendly person and I'll personally welcome new players on the server, show them around their District and help them get started. I'm decent with redstone and hoppers, which could be useful for building in the Capitol. I'm obsessed with the Hunger Games and I've pretty much memorized every word of the movie and the books. My building strength would be in modern furniture and abstract shapes. I'm a really dedicated player and I'll get onto the server as much as possible. I am also patient and a perfectionist so if there are long, tedious jobs that no one else wants to do, I'll volunteer (lol, Katniss) for them and make sure they are done right.
Other: I'll be able to come on every other day. Funny thing, I had the same idea for a server so, I can contribute some of my ideas and if you guys like them you can incorporate them in. I will also advertise the server as much as possible. (Without being annoying, of course)
Thanks for considering my app. Hope I get accepted, either way I'll play on the server. It's a great idea and sounds like it will be a great server.!!!!
Position You Are Applying For: Staff on the server ( i can also help build if necessary)
Hunger Games Knowledge: I have read the whole series three times (for it is my favorite book of all time) and watched the movie twice i know most everything their is to know about hunger games.
Where would you prefer to work?: I would prefer to work in district 3 but any district would do
Minecraft Experience: I have been playing minecraft for 2 years now
Example of Building Work: I do not build many complex buildings but i can hold my own in a building competition. I am best at pixel art but i can build buildings that you need me to build
Your Skills and Strengths\ Why should we accept you?: I am a huge hunger games fan and this is the best idea i have seen so far. I would love for you to have me on your staff for i can offer a person who is smart, funny, and have can do what ever it takes to make this sever work. I am a hard worker so what ever you need done i can do it. I will help show players around the server when they join and tell them everything they need to know to get started. I can make sure the server is running smoothly and take out any advertisers / hackers who roam the servers. I was born to help people and you would make my day if you let me help you. I will be on the server for around 2-3 hours on weekdays and 5 hours on weekends.
Other: I am a nice funny hardworking guy who is smart and understands the work it will take to create this. That being said i would be more than happy to spend a great deal of my time to create this server because i have never seen a server that looks more fun than this one. I am a decent builder so if that needs to be done i can do it. Thank you for reading this application and i hope you consider me for your staff or any other position of need.
Position You Are Applying For: I have a variety of skills, and can just be a helpful hand for whatever might be needed to be done. I know that you need someone like that, so that is what I am applying for.
Hunger Games Knowledge: Well, I read the books so that is pretty much all the knowledge of the world and the way the games work.
Where would you prefer to work?: By your side.
Minecraft Experience: I owned the game for close to 2-3 years now and have run a couple server from then til now.
Example of Building Work: None, I can be someone that can help build, but that isn't really what I am looking to do.
Your Skills and Strengths\ Why should we accept you?: A variety: web design, basic OOP (Object oriented programming), PHP, Made over $10,000 with ecommerce, and I am very good at starting up projects, and keeping them move at the correct pace.
Your Skills and Strengths\ Why should we accept you?: I was a Lead Designer for district 7 on the Project Panem reloaded server (the 2nd one). It kind of fell apart due to lack of leadership so I saw this and wanted to really make this map this time.
