Hello players!

I am happy to announce the final sale of the year. Until the 2nd of January, all ranks and rank upgrades are 65% cheaper. So if you have been thinking about getting one of our ranks, this is the time to get it, since this will most likely be the highest discount for a while.

Check out the awesome rank perks at https://store.shadowkingdom.org/ or use /buy in-game (make sure you enter the right username when using the website though). :)

Towny Winter Event
In addition to that, we are launching our Towny Winter Event paralel to the Creative Build Contest! Similar to the previous Winter event you can unlock your rewards, including a personalized item, by completing a number of challenging, frosty tasks between now and January the 2nd!

First of all, here is the list of all objectives. You can get that list in-game by using /winter:
  • Place 5000 blocks of snow
  • Place 2500 spruce leaves
  • Break 5000 spruce logs
  • Break 5000 packed ice blocks
  • Break 10000 cocoa beans
  • Break 2500 coal ore
  • Kill 10 polar bears
  • Kill 50 rabbits
  • Craft 500 cakes
  • Craft 1000 firework charges
  • Craft 500 pumpkin pies
  • Breed 25 foxes
Completing each task will award you with a personalized WinterToken. They will only work for the player who obtained them, so trading is not possible*.

Once you have at least 10 of them, you can use them in /winterprize to claim the final reward. This reward consists of a shulker box containing these items:

You might wonder why you have to work for a "gift". I'd like to answer this with a counterquestion: Why would you expect to get anything in life for free?

And on top of that, you will get your very own Elf Hat. Just like last year, you are free to choose your favourite color ;)

Each one comes with a personalized name and...

Hello everyone!

We've had five great contests so far, filled with wonderful builds created by our talented players and staff members. Therefore, we are proud to announce the sixth Creative Build Contest! As usual, staff members will be able to compete in a separate ranked contest - judged by you. To spice things up a little, we decided to increase the prizes for the winners significantly!

Just like the last contests, the theme will be decided by your votes. This year we do not have a specific winter theme, however, all of the available options allow enough flexiblity for a snowy build, if you would like to make one. :D

Timetable:
  • December 11th-15th: Theme Poll.
  • December 17th: Theme announcement, building begins!
  • January 15th: Building ends, judging starts.
  • January 24th: Results are published.
Poll:
  • Legends And Myths:
History became legend. Legend became myth. Ancient cities, great heroes and dark creatures have been lost to time and now only their stories remain, waiting to be retold and recreated in this fantasy/history themed contest!​
  • Virtual Worlds:
Virtual reality, the gateway to remote lands, alien planets and magical places. Here the laws of nature are but a guideline and everything the mind can imagine is possible. Or could our “reality” be just a simulation that is revealed if you only look close enough?​
  • Natural Disasters:
The greatest creations of man are insignificant when confronted with the forces of nature. Will you portray the fury of the elements and the destruction it brings or will you instead show how, despite everything, humanity unites to overcome the challenges it faces?​
  • Into The Unknown:
Fraught with thrills and frights, the allure of the unknown calls to you. These distant worlds hold great mysteries, great challenges, and even greater treasures. Wonderful brilliance and terror, a new world across the sea, and alien landscapes.
