Hello everyone!

We are happy to announce our yearly Spring Sale, accompanied with a brand new event! Until the 12th of April, all ranks are 30% cheaper and all in-game perks are 25% cheaper. So if you have been thinking about getting something from our shop and missed the birthday sale, this is your chance.

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). :)

Easter Event - The Egg Hunt
Looks like the Easter bunny came early this year and hid many eggs all over our spawns. Grab your magnifying glass, put on your searching shoes and find them all!

There are 50 eggs hidden in the Towny spawn and another 50 eggs in the Creative spawn. When you find an egg, simply click it to claim it as found. When you find an egg, you will get the reward it holds inside! (but watch out, not every egg has a reward)
Some eggs are easier to find than others, but with the right amount of patience and skills you should be able to find them all. ;)

When you find all 50 eggs on Towny, you will be rewarded with this unique event item:

When you find all 50 eggs on Creative, you will be rewarded with a unique rank that gives you the following perms until the end of April:
- Access to the following Building Tools: WorldEdit, VoxelSniper, GoBrush & GoPaint.
- Access to ArmorstandsTools to give your builds that extra level of detail.

Will you find all eggs and claim the ultimate prize?

Hello everyone!

After three very successful build contests, it is finally time for our fourth official Creative Build Contest! But this time there will be an exciting twist for those who were always wondering how their building skills compare to our Creative staff members!

For this contest, our most skilled staff members will build something with the same theme and restrictions alongside you! Don't worry though, their builds will not be part of the actual ranking so they will not steal any prizes. Instead, their builds will be ranked separately, based on the votes of our amazing players!

The contest will run from the 27th of March to the 17th of April. This contest’s build time will be three weeks, giving everyone enough time to build something breathtaking! You can join the build contest by claiming a plot at /warp Contest.

The timetable for the contest will be as follows:
20th-25th March: Theme poll.
27th March: Theme announcement, building begins!
17th April: Building ends, judging starts.
24th April: Contest results.

Poll:
The contest theme will once again be decided by you, through a poll. With four brand new themes everyone should be able to find one they like.
  • Under the Sea / Into the Abyss:
    As we dive down the sunlight fades. More and more fish are swimming with us. While the water surrounding us cools down, I turn on my lamp and see the most beautiful things through my crystal clear goggles. What will you be making in this underwater themed contest?
  • The Wild Wild West:
    West America, 1800. The scorching sun causes many to stay inside. A tumbleweed, a saloon, the sheriff’s office and a railroad form the main setting for this Wild Wild West Contest. Get your horses ready, hold your lasso tight and make sure to be on time for the duel at noon!
  • Knights and Princesses:
    In addition to the grand castles, city walls and cathedrals, we also find many knights, workmen, farmers and nobles in this era. During the Middle Ages there is something to do everywhere, if it is not a witch hunt, it may well be a coronation of the next emporer. Where do we find you in this century?
  • Steampunk:
    The sound of a running engine, the wind from a fan blowing...
