Character Name - Oak
Character Age - Unsure
Character Backstory- Oak lived for a long time near a town named Vendigroth, leading a rather peaceful life as a druid, he helped the locals and was involved in some conflicts, but overall he led a nice life. Eventually he became sick, and he found life around him to be becoming sick as well, so suddenly he left Vendigroth to find some kind of cure. He spent countless days in the wild experimenting with recipes but found nothing. Eventually he grew sick of it and ate a berry he knew to be extremely poisonous. The effect was far different to what he desired, he found the disease to be gone, and was euphoric, but he also found that many of his powers were gone or weakened. He had far fewer healing powers, and found it almost impossible to change form. He wept the day the sky went dark, he knew that nothing could grow without sunlight, so thought about giving up. Then he remembered his past friends and knew if he sought them out, they might have a way of bringing light back. As the light returns, Oak is confused, and needs shelter and oatmeal.

Apr 14, 2012nickimmy posted a message on Why do I constantly hear the 'Poor people are too lazy to get a job.' argument?Whenever entering a discussion about welfare, health care and charity with a conservative they always tell me that poor people are lazy. I don't know how this argument even exists. People have this idea that everyone is born equal, as much as it would be nice for that to be true, it simply isn't. Someone born as the child of a rich person gets good schooling, from that gets the ability to go to university, as they could afford it, and then is able to get a good job. Now I'm not saying poor people can't get jobs, but for a person born to a low income family to get a well paying job is FAR harder than for one born to a rich family. People need to realise that we aren't all equal, and that idea is the biggest flaw in capitalism.Posted in: Politics, Philosophy, News and Science

Betelgeuse is a dedicated role playing server. Beginning with your application, you will create a new identity to play as. You can live life as a simple farmer, harvesting the fruits of the earth to feed your home. Or perhaps a guard, protecting the town from dangerous undead enemies. Or maybe you're more of a "wealth-redistributor", pilfering anything not nailed down from ancient crypts. The choices are yours to make, and we invite you to make them here, in one of the most in-depth role playing settings you'll find in Minecraft.Not strictly necessary to read, but it will help you to understand our world and shape your character.
Era of Discovery
In the year 831, the continent of Betelgeuse was the home to three nations; the Humans of Novum, the Elves of Gwaelondur, and the Lamia of Sha'Eranathi. The elves and humans were on good terms, each aiding the other when needed, while the Lamia, a breed of snake-people, kept to themselves.
Novum was a port city, a trading hub on this continent for the human empire that ruled their homeland. Settled decades before, it had grown up around the fishing and farming industries that came naturally along the coast. Gwaelondur was a city nestled in one of the dense jungles of Betelgeuse. Living in harmony with the trees, the elves prospered, able to take the lumber they needed without harming the forests.
For years the only threat were roaming bands of Orc marauders. The elves and humans would work together to defend themselves and each other against these hulking berserkers. The Lamia again watched, aiding on occasion, but only when it suited them to do so.
Then, in 873, the continent was changed with the emergence of the Dwarves of Bryn Duraz. The elves immediately took a disliking to the stocky mountain dwelling race, while the humans formed an alliance with them. This alliance prevented any hostilities between the elves and dwarves, as neither wished to lose their human friends.
With the dwarves, however, another race took their place on Betelgeuse. The Anansi, a race of hostile spider-people, skittered out of the caves spanning the continent. Immediately allying with the orcs, they began attacking the other races, waging war on any that ventured below ground or into the swamps.
Era of Strife
874 – 1131
In 874, the Orcs and Anansi brutally attacked the dwarves, slaughtering a mining outpost and collapsing several tunnels. The humans and elves, unable to aid their cavern dwlling allies, counted them off as dead, and focused on fighting their enemies on the surface.
After decades of bloody fighting, the humans and elves developed a construct to aid them against their enemies. Massive iron golems now defended their cities, evening the odds against the brutish orcs and near-feral Anansi.
Even the Lamia fought the spiderfolk, using their own magics to defend against them, an almost instinctual loathing growing inside of them.
Finally, after over two centuries of war, the dwarves reemerged in 1130. Having developed golems of their own, they reopened their caves, joining in the surface fighting with axes and constructs. Nobody questioned how the dwarves had defeated their foes, thankful that they were alive to help fight the remaining Anansi. By 1131, the war was over and the spiders were thought extinct.
Era of Tears
1131 – Present
Relations were never quite the same after what scholars referred to as the War of the Spiders. The Dwarves were even less trustworthy of the Elves after being abandoned, as they viewed it, while the elves were suspicious of how the Dwarves defeated the Anansi. The elves, while still friendly with the humans, blamed them for the high losses they suffered during the war. The Lamia, as always, remained secluded, though associated with the other races a little more after seeing their strength.
The reason for the Dwarves' victory became evident in recent years, when a final group made their presence known. Representatives of the Drow house Zau'Afin revealed themselves to the surface races twenty years ago in 1452, informing them of their residence in the deepest caverns in Betelgeuse.
They also brought unsettling news: the Anansi were not extinct. They had retreated deep into their nests and were rebuilding. The Drow had been fighting with small bands of them for years, and the threat was still there.
The year is now 1472, Era of Tears. For the past three hundred and forty one years, Betelgeuse has been at peace, with only internal struggles hampering the nations. How the world may change still remains to be seen.

We are a dedicated Minecraft RolePlaying server hosted in Phoenix, Arizona. We feature a mild RP experience, along with a more HardCore plot driven experience. You live in the port city of New Novograd. Perhaps you have lived there for years, or perhaps you just arrived off the boat. Your destiny is your own to shape here in Betelgeuse: Supernova.
Rules1.) Join our external forum.2.)Read and follow all rules at Spawn.3.) No griefing, mods, asking for handouts, asking for OP/Admin status.4.) No overpowered characters. Period. End of discussion. If you need to ask if your character is overpowered, it is.5.) No god-modding, meta-gaming, etc.6.) This isn't required or a rule, but if you want to increase the immersion and atmosphere, set your render distance to short, and your brightness to moody.
Application. Characters should be realistic. If your character has an answer for everything and will always come out on top in any given scenario, you're doing it wrong. If your powers far outmatch your weaknesses, you may need to rethink your character.
For Example: If your character was born with the innate power to control lightning, and an accompanying immunity to lightning, you're doing it wrong. If your character has power over lightning, a good addition would be for them to be plagued by small shocks. Perhaps they're unable to touch metal for fear of being electrocuted.

That's a problem today. It's not what you know, but who you know. And I don't know anyone
To be honest. I was kicked out of my house when I was 14. I lived with friends until I was 15. After that lived on the streets and grew up in not the best places in the world. I then meet my wife, went to college. Worked 2 jobs, I would literally work from 4am to 11am, go to school from 11am to 5pm, then go to a different job from 5pm to 11pm. Every weekday. Sunday and Saturday, I would go to the evening job, but not the morning job. I did this for almost 5 years, while my wife worked one job and took 28 credits in school. For those five years, the total income we both made was less then $15,000 dollars a year, with had to feed and cloth 3 people, my younger sister was living with us. I never took welfare or food stamps. I never took unemployment.She walked away from college with a prefect grade point and a phd in computer science. I limped away with a masters degree and two bachelors degrees, and a 3.81 grade point average. College almost killed me. I been poor. I would never consider anyone that is poor to ever be lazy. Ever. I would consider some of them to have mental illness and self worth issues, but never lazy. I said it before and will say it again. The most laziest people I know, make more then a million dollars a year. Some of the hardest working people I know are extremely poor.

I'm still working on making enough (though I doubt there ever will be enough) to build something epic and being able to make Steve? and some mobs. Now I can have all the diamond I want!

Apr 8, 2012draconoxis posted a message on Digging directly up should NOT be a rule of minecraft.Technically its not so much a rule as old, but still used warning, although I get exactly what you mean. In saying that, you're right about it being a little out of date. As you said, the lava and water drops give away any immediate danger of digging straight up, and the only real threat is being one block below lava I guess. Usually, if you're smart, you would also listen for mobs before digging somewhere. If you hear footsteps or a zombie growling in the distance, and you can't pinpoint the direction it's coming from, assume they're above you. And even still, with sprinting, knockback, blocking, and all these new-fancy doodads that 1.8 brought about, mobs falling on you really isn't that threatening anymore. I miss how hard Minecraft used to be; No beds, no regen, no tamables, just you fighting like a man.Posted in: Survival Mode
