What happened to SCORPIO? Will there be SCORPIO you ask? The ship what transported many convicted people to Prison Island to face their final journey behind the prison bars. Well, let me share a story about SCORPIO and the Captain of that legendary ship.
One faithful stormy night, it wasn't stormy, it wasn't even night, but all the glory stories starts like that - The captain of SCORPIO, better known as Captain Shananium, was facing faithful challenge in the ocean. He and his ship was in trouble.. deep deep trouble! No one could image the fight and struggle to keep this ship on course. The fight between the ship and it's captain could be one of the most epic in Prison Island history and it was hours and hours long! Sadly.. Captain Shananium and his ship lost that fight and ship ended crashing land of prison Island, collapsing prison walls and giving all the prisoners free route to escape. Cause of this horrible accident and fight behind the scenes belongs to Koskenkorva Viina, (also known simply as Koskenkorva, or Kossu). It is the most common clear spirit drink (38%) in Finland, produced by Altia in the Koskenkorva distillery in Ilmajoki and bottled in Rajamäki. Shananium just could not handle these % at ocean and basically wasn't capable to guide ship safety to prison island. This was sad day for SCORPIO and sad day for Prison Island.
But will there be SCORPIO II?
Prison Island Warden
Head of Staff
I'm no longer AlphaGuard or member of Staff in this server. (I retired) I serve currently under C-Rank and maybe later as Trainee/Guard depending how things turns out. (Guarding has always been the thing I really like to do). I have no other plans from future, but I hang around just like before.
Lot of weight on my shoulders has been dropped and I feel good about it.
C'ya around, one more hippie has reborn.
Senior Guards can now host small events in server. They have own arena to do that, warps can be found inside D, B and C-Bank. Warp is "SE" and it's on Cyan wool. There are only 3 events for now, but more are coming soon. First events will be "Beta" until it's fully tested with full event scenario by Seniors.
I like to remind everyone, that this is no excuse so beg or nag Seniors about hosting events. They are only allowed to do so few times a day + they have other duties in Server too.
C'ya in Senior Events!
What I have heard so far, it's yet undiscovered and the main reason for lag is still missing. It could be Plugin or plugins, It could be host-side issue, there could be something between server and player connections, Can't really count ddos possibility out. I only know that server was pretty solid first days even with over 60 players, but something changed dramatically 3 days ago and every new day has been more worst than day before.
So before server pops back up, I hope research and tests will be made by Devs to get performance back how it was originally. Just don't open it until this is solved or you are 90% sure what could be the reason. It may sound "stupid" but having playable server is more prior now than having server open what is unplayable.
As part of Staff, I'm really sorry for lack of communication between Staff and Players. I've done everything from my power to change it and I have had numerous cat fights between Wardens and Devs but facts remains... Moderators/Alphas are in same boat than you guys. We don't know anything and if we know something, we are not allowed to share anything as our "Trust rules".
I know that all of you deserves better than we can offer right now. This has been long tradition in Convicted, you don't see any Wardens/Devs except SDA share things and mind with you guys. It breaks my heart when potential commune like Convicted is treated like this. I hope these things changes at least when server is open, but to be honest, I'm with one of those who lacks trust for Convicted right now.
I'm sorry, but that's how it is. It's exactly how everyone have said here and Staff have nothing to counter it.

Looking for a prison server to test your skills and prove your worth? A server with a range of activities and an active team? Then look no further. Come to The notorious Prison Island. Many brave souls have entered the walls of the prison and eaten it's gruelling soup, but few have returned to the mainland. In this prison you'll hone your skills, make friends and discover your inner strength by climbing through the ranks till you eventually earn your freedom. The question is: are you going to survive?
Inspired by numerous servers and built with great care by users of a since-closed prison server, Prison Island is a collection of ideas from many people combined - not a single person alone.
All suggestions are considered with great care and no idea goes ignored so feel free to tell staff about any ideas that you have.
WARNING: Breaking any of the below rules may result in your Minecraft account being permanently banned from the server.
To make a ban appeal please use the following format:
No coddling. No unfair play. Just pure, raw, competitive pvp. Enjoy your time in prison.
You've been sentenced to life in Penitentiary. The Prison runs on a currency called Behavior Points. With BP you can buy items, plots, cells, and a higher prison rank. Most items can be sold for BP, but how you get these items is up to you. Will you work in the mines or shank your cellmate? Will you befriend the guards or become notoroius?
Through good behavior, you have finally earned your freedom. You are now free to roam the wilderness. Prison rules are not enforced here. Stealing from others is allowed, but griefing is not. You may come back to the prison at any time, but you must follow prison rules while inside.

(Minimum of 3 days)4) Have you read the Server, Prison, and Guard Rules?5) Any experience with the prison genre?6) What is your time zone?7) Why are you the best choice for guard?

Do you understand that we will require a screenshot of this when/if you retire from guard?
New guards are first set to the "Trainee" rank. A Trainee Guard is upgraded to full guard through a recommendation from an Alpha or Warden. Full Guards are upgraded to Alpha Guard through recommendations from Wardens only.

The main goal of the server: To provide some people with a Minecraft server that offers
heavy progression gameplay. While allowing them into survival to take a break yet
still work towards some goal. These goals are not meant to be met within a given time period,
it is going to take some time. Granted, this server is sort of niche - it won't pander to
everyone's likes, but give it a try! Hopefully we can make this server a second home to enjoy.
If you're having trouble starting out, refer to this starter guide and tips:
When you first spawn, you will be in the main Mastery world.
1. Head towards the cafeteria to, continue walking straight until you see this Quartz-like door
2. Read up on the requirements to begin Mastery
3. Earn money by chopping logs, stone, or completing various parkour
- Upon respawning after death, you will be in the survival world, simply click on the bedrock sign to return to Mastery -
Added a simplified beginner guide at the bottom, it is hidden behind spoilers!
Although the server is currently in Beta, I am enjoying my time in the survival world! Can't wait to see the finished product < :
I'm enjoying the server a lot, fighting with other hooligans such as myself and adventuring out in the survival world with friends, chill server!
This will serve as the official forum post. There is a bitly link to it which is currently bit.ly/MasteryForum. This is a very fun server and hope to see new players on it soon!
