A short post to inform you all that Aethier will be updating to Minecraft Version 1.15.2 on the 12th March 2020.
This is due to the following reasons:
Performance issues with 1.14.4
Stability issues affecting plugin releases
Framerate issues reported by players.
MPM being half broken anyway
Difficulties resulting in us being unable to enable mobs, release resource maps, and provide access to legacy content.
There will be a service outage on this date for approximatley 2-3 hours from 6pm GMT to 9pm GMT. Pre-Testing has shown that no issues will occur as of the upgrade and all server functions will resume, however there will be a lack of MPM support until the developer updates the mod properly.
Further information will be provided as needed and in response to player questions.
As some of you may know, a part of Aethier's Welcome Team used to consist of the Newcomer Training Team, or NTT. The NTT hasn't really had a lot of structure or guidance as to how it is intended to function. As the new Welcome Team lead, I have taken it upon myself to revamp this system. I have rebranded the NTT to be New Player Mentors, and this new system is described below. I have also made a few other additions/changes to the team as well.
1. NTT changed to Mentors, people who will help out new players with whatever they need as opposed to giving tours that can be a bit overwhelming. Their goal is to help players feel comfortable and find RP as well as answering any questions new players might have.
2. New thread coming out with descriptions of all the current regions/faction groups. Will note if they are accepting new players or not.
3. Welcome Team becoming three different divisions: Whitelisting, Mentors, and Marketing. You don't have to be in all three, and we are looking for new members.
After reading this thread, if you are interested in becoming a new player mentor or joining the marketing division of Welcome Team, please apply here. If you have a pending NTT application, please comment on your app to let me know if you are interested in joining the Mentoring division instead.
Hello everyone! For those of you who don't know me, I'm natureluvr, and I've recently been hired as Welcome Team Leader following Redwall's retirement. I've got a lot of ideas that I'm currently working on to improve some things, particular regarding new player integration, and hopefully they should be released soon! Welcome Team and I are already hard at work planning and discussing, we have high hopes for everything that's in store!
Thank you all so much for this wonderful opportunity and I hope that I will be able to do good by our server as Welcome Team lead!
These were the last words spoken before the Prime Evil of Pride, Astaroth, was ripped in half by the mysterious, demon-like being. In truth, it didn't know itself. It was vengeful, angry..hungry. And all it sought was food, and power..the power to do..what? What was it again? It couldn't remember.
It felt as if it had been shattered into a million pieces, and only by eating the strongest of this place it could realize what it was. Yet a red haze clouded over its vision as it sat upon the throne of Pride, staring out across the hundreds of guards, courtiers and other beings that now lay as nothing but entrails in the wake of its rampage.
As it finished its meal it exited the palace, watching as thousands of demonic beings lines up across the plaza, kneeling to their new lord. Power felt good..but something was missing. This wasn't its home, was it? Chaos, destruction..this was not what it sought, but it needed it so to survive for now..
The ground shook above for a moment, as the drums of war beat across the overworld. It looked up, and for a brief moment, it remembered. It's red eyes lit aglow with hellish rage, and it looked to the world above which it had faint memories of that faded as fast as they came. It soon looked back down, and began marching toward...
