Apr 16, 2012After claiming he was captured and had been a prisoner on the ship for two weeks, the guards of the fort released him and sent him on a boat to the nearest town, Flan.Posted in: Screenshots
Being careful not to mention his pirate past, he told the townspeople of his boating knowledge and about his days at the harbor in Hambeck. Soon after, a small boat was constructed so George could deliver and pick-up goods around the area.
After bringing back a load of stone from a near-by town, a lighthouse was being built to guide captains into the small cove.
A small farm was tilled and planted to provide more feeding options for the town.
Using the stones from the newly dug mine, the harbor was starting to take shape.
A long stretch of shore was reinforced to make a new dock for a boat built by George and the town's carpenter.
After the boat was complete George heard news that Cap'n Saude and crew had escaped Dro's Keep. Although he loved the people there, he wanted to get back on the pirate ship, he would tell the people of the town that he was going to pick up some cloth from a far away town.
As he departed from the cove, he made course for Saude's keep, although he didn't know for sure if the escapees would be there, it was the best option he had.
As he sailed into river's mouth he gazed upon a beautiful Galleon, topped with the red flag of Saude's fleet.
Before entering the keep he took one last glance at the massive ship, faced the door, and knocked 4 times.
After peering through the peep-hole the door was unlocked and George was led into the captain's room, where he was examining maps.
The captain looked at George with a stern look, and after a few moments of silence, grinned, and let out a joyful "Ahoy me boy!".
Apr 14, 2012*This topic follows the life of redblade, a pirate in the fictional lands surrounding the Baltic sea and more. It is not completely accurate, for I do not have a great knowledge of pirates, but I probably know more then the average person, that being said, correct me on my historical mistakes, and I'll remember them next time, just don't make a fuss about it. This thread was started to diversify the many topics started based in the Baltica, enjoy.Posted in: Screenshots
George worked with his father in Hambeck at the shipyard, unloading and loading goods, fixing ships, and other ship related task starting at a very young age.
When George was just 13 his father was recruited to captain Lord Occam II's ship through the Baltica, he would be gone for months, and George would continue his work and live at the shipyard. When the Lord finally came back aboard a ship George did not recognized he became worried. Did they wreck? Why would they have switched ships? These were just some of the thoughts that were running through his mind. He made his way through the crowd of overjoyed people happy that their lord had returned, but where was George's father?
Once he made it to where the Lord was standing with two men he shed a tear, for they were the other men who had gone with the Lord on his journey, surely his father would've been standing there with him. When the Lord spotted George he frowned, turned around, and sent one of his men over to tell him the news. George was devastated, who would take care of him? He had already become sick of the men at the harbor. He couldn't handle it, all the happy people around him, all the joyful cries. He ran back to his room and started to cry.
His sorrow turned to fury, he started blaming others for his fathers death, he then blamed himself. No one had come to comfort him, not even bring him some food. Where would he go? He couldn't stay in Ha,beck, too many memories, but where would he escape to? Then it hit him, pirate ships, he remembered how he had always admired them as a child, how they could just sail by and send fear throughout the town, and he remembered how he had once overheard his father talk to another man about how the pirates would sometimes have children aboard doing tasks such as bringing powder for the cannon form place to place. It was not an ideal lifestyle, but it would do, at least he might earn some respect. But how would he board a ship? They never came into the harbor, for if they did they'd be blown to bits, and the nearest known pirate keep was leagues away.
Then he heard the bells, they rang 3 times, signifying a pirate's passing. George ran outside to see the ship, it was a bit small compared to some he'd seen, but it was still beautiful in his eyes. He made up his mind, and hoped into his small rowboat and snuck away from the town in the dark of the night following the ship.
That was months ago, George had caught up with the ship at a small dock and boarded it after discussing with its captain, Saude, telling him that he'd do any job.
George had become quite popular aboard the ship despite being a low-ranking Powder Monkey by telling stories of his times in Hambeck and the ones from his father, giving the captain his knowledge of the shipping schedules and patterns of ships, he had even gotten the nickname Peek-a-Boo, which he despised, for his tendency to pop out of no where.
They were now dropping anchor near a jungle, where they would spend the night while a hole in the ships hull was patched.
Captain Saude had his men setup a quick camp site where they would sleep for the night.
The next morning George was chosen to be part of the crew that would go explore the shore in search of locals to sell off some of their goods. George was told that if he succeeded in doing this task he would be moved up in ranking on the ship. After only an hour of searching they found two fishing homes and sold off some of their provisions.
They returned to the ship and boarded it, telling the Captain of their earnings. George was promoted to deckhand, it wasn't much, but at least he'd be out of the soggy bottom of the ship. The captain's yelled out some commands, and they we're off to the small port town of Flan.
They restocked supplies in the town and were off to Dro's Keep, were a battle would ensue.
By conquering Dro's Keep the pirates would have a stronger safe for their treasures and a better take off point. Once they had reached Dro's Keep they met up with their sister ship, the Baltic Adventurer, and attacked the ill-guarded fortress in the cover of the night.
The sister ships had their advantage by attacking at night and pummeled down the fort's walls.
But the small victory was quickly overcome when the fort's catapult hit the bow of the Baltic Adventurer.
The ship quickly flooded and went down in a matter of minutes. As more defenders awoke the sky was lit up by flaming arrows hitting Saude's ship, the crew abandoned ship but were quickly captured by the fort's defenders.
MOAR: erm yea sorry about the pictures switching from night to day all of a sudden. Anyways ill post more soon.

Jul 10, 2014Auksie posted a message on WHITEARK: a vast desert city and long-term solo project (4th August 2018 - OP completely redone! Really!)Posted in: ScreenshotsQuote from breakneckelement »Man, this is great. =D
I don't usually like desert builds, all the pale yellowish sand and sandstone makes it feel whitewashed and plain, but the sheer mass of this project as well as the attention to detail and back story make this totally worth seeing. Do any of these houses count as villager houses? Because if they do it'd be great to see this city populated. =)
I'm not a huge fan of desert builds either, partially for the same reason that anything other than sandstone looks a bit out of place while too much sandstone feels a little bland, but I also don't see why so many desert builds insist on looking Egyptian or Arabian - pyramids, palm trees, minarets and so on. It's a pet peeve of mine really.
A few villagers were put in the bank in the Old Town after I built it way back when, but they eventually all died for some reason. Testificate Plague, I dunno. They were so annoying though that there aren't any anymore, so I don't know if it would work as a villager city. I would give it a go, but their constant noise drives me loopy.
Seeing as it's been a month-and-a-half since I posted anything here, leaving this to end up on page seven, here's a quick teaser to show I'm actually still building...
New clocktower? What new clocktower?
Dec 18, 2013NASH0XX posted a message on ~ Project Mitica ~ [RPG/Adventure/Survival] [Recruiting Skilled Builders]Hello everyone, I have been playing minecraft since the 1.7.3 Beta, and there's always that moment when you get bored of the game, it often happens right?, at least for me does.The moment when I got bored of Minecraft was the first moment that I realized that most of all server where the same thing: Factions, Multi-World, Mini games, Hunger games. The first thing that appears (and keeps appearing) when you search for "Minecraft server" will be one of these.I kept searching for an "innovative" server, but I wasn't lucky in doing that. The same results again and again, but I found some that weren't equal, a few ones were different, but they were still the same thing. So I started to think, "What can I do to create the best server out there, something unique, original and awesome?", I thought and thought, until I got it! I asked some people what did they want to see in the game, took the best of some games and thenI blend them together, what I got was: "Project Mitica".Posted in: Server Recruitment
Project Mitica, what's it?
Project Mitica is a server that mixes the RPG with the Adventure plus the Survival aspect of minecraft that we all love, its main goal is to bring a new type of "gameplay", a new experience for the minecraft players.
Set in a vast world of 10000x10000, players can freely walk and discover all the greatness of this incredible world: Cities, amazing landscapes, villages, people, dungeons, etc. They can freely edit the terrain as they wish(break/build), with only a few limitations of course.
Players take part in this world being whatever they want, there are no specific classes or races that they must choose, they can be anything they want. The possibilities are endless. Once the players have chosen their "role", they can follow a "path" in order to become that thing they want to become, by reading books, asking people, going to a specific place, etc.
No "warps", portals or signs that tell you where to go. Everything is up to the players, where they want to go, what to do, etc. Every step and decision a player makes will forge his/her own story among the people of Mitica(The Players), but there will be a lot of challenges by making these decisions. Although there are no signs that tell you where to go, the spawn point is very helpful to help and orientate the players, that way, they won't feel lost.
A lot of danger. The World of Mitica is a dangerous place, filled with strange creatures and corrupted souls that make this more challenging, everything set to Mitica's Lore. (Dungeons, Dangerous Places, Temples, and much more!)
Lore. Lore is a fundamental part of Mitica, where you can find information about the world and its story, you can even be guided by these. Books are the best information point for players, by reading books you can almost go anywhere you want!
No NPC. It's all about the players. There are no NPC.
An amazing world. The World of Mitica is beautiful and interesting, with this new world at your hands you will not want to play with the default World of Minecraft anymore!
3 Great Continents, 3 Empires and 3 Kings
Featuring 3 Huge Continents and their cities, this experience is taken to another level, where you can join an Empire if you wish to, and form part of the greatness of it. But that's not all, multiple islands, magic places, dangerous places, and uknown lands await you in this world! And that's not all! There's much more to say about this project!
Thanks for all your support guys, now the server is up and running! You can now see it here!IP= worldofmitica.com:25567
Prepare yourself for the adventure!

Jun 4, 2013CheesyCrackers posted a message on ~REALMS OF ELDARIA~ [New RPG server] [Need Staff and Builders]I'm not applying but just wanted to point out that you miss spelt high with a added T at the end of "Builder(Really hight priority)"Posted in: Server Recruitment
Jun 4, 2013emily_2010 posted a message on I'm back! And busy remaking everything! Here's the first preview..Every few months I get the urge to get back on minecraft and update my creations but there is always too much and I end up losing interest or I get swamped with all the new blocks that come out and suddenly my stuff is out of date. I'm rushing to get it done this time! I'm making a town for a zombie survival server. What do you think so far?Posted in: Screenshots
The texture pack i'm using is called R3d Craft, it's a 128x version of the default textures and i'm using shaders.
Mar 16, 2013Come sign my petition to stop big youtubers from not replanting trees in MP servers, its a huge issue for new players. This is somthing i will offer no evidence for yet still think you should sign the petition.Posted in: Discussion
You keep saying all these things yet dont give us any evidence for your claims.
Mar 16, 2013I'm sorry but I find it highly doubtful that any of the really big youtubers go out to random servers and just openly bully some random person. Considering most of the 'famous' ones a usually 20+ years old. They have better things to do. And bullying some random kid would trash their reputation with the community at large if it ever got out.Posted in: Discussion
Also. 'Cyber- Bullying' is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard of. It's the internet. If you don't like so jerk messing with you then ignore them. It's easy. If you in a chat room leave the room or try to have them silenced. On a forum just report the person to a staff member. Seriously. Any one who gets so threatened by a random person on the internet needs to toughen up. Being made fun of by random trolls isn't 'bullying'. When it comes right down to it. If people refuse to help you out. Nothing is keeping you in front of the computer screen, or on the site where this 'bullying' is going on. You can walk away from it. What you can't walk away from is some one you see every day at school who want's to beat the crap out of you, or just make your life a living hell. That is bullying.
Mar 16, 2013I think you're overestimating the power of a petition. It can't stop an abstract concept like bullying and it certainly won't "get the word out" about how some random Minecraft Player was, shockingly, told his content wasn't very good or was, even more shockingly, ignored entirely.Posted in: Discussion
Feb 6, 2013redekens posted a message on Lands of Aeacus [Updates every Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday!] [FANTASY] [RPG]I think you should take it easy on the custom blocks used!Posted in: Screenshots
The city is too bland (the rooftops and roads for example) and the terrain too flat. Also when you take screenshots you should make it more visually appealing, such as taking the screenshots during daytime and turning your smooth lighting to max. The texture pack's logs also clash with your creation too much. I suggest getting a new texture pack or fix those textures.
Please don't take this criticism too hard, I am only stating on what I feel can make this better.
