Hello players,

Today marks two years since we founded Shadow Kingdom. We have seen so much success in the past two years that we never thought possible when we originally released SK to the public as a plotworld creative server.

Shadow Kingdom has seen both good and bad days. Many of you veteran players will remember the days when our average player count was 3-5. This is why it blows our mind to see that just last weekend, we've peaked at 57 players online.

During the time that Shadow Kingdom has been open, we've had many memorable experiences. We'd like to highlight some of these moments here. We've had many well-known builders and Planet Minecraft staff members join SK to build, we've had famous Twitch streamers play on Creative with their fans, and we've even had a real-life museum use SK as a demo server for Minecraft. Things like these events are what keep us interested and willing to continue development for you, the players.

We'd like to conclude this announcement with a thank you to the community for supporting our project. Without you guys, SK couldn't have existed this long. Here's to another 2+ years of prosperity for Shadow Kingdom!

Players, please comment below this post what your favorite memory on SK has been. Screenshots are encouraged!

Hello players,

Today I'd like to introduce to all of you Shadow Kingdom Skyblock. We have been working on this server for many weeks now, and it's now near completion. I'm going to go over some of the key features on our new Skyblock server in this post to give everyone an idea of what the experience will be.

Challenges and Ranks

On Skyblock, you will become ranked by completing challenges. These challenges will range from building houses to collecting materials. As you complete the challenges, you will be granted many prizes that will help you during your Skyblock journey. After unlocking a new level of challenges, you will be auto-ranked through the ranking ladder.

Auctions, Crates, and mcMMO

As with Survival, we will be implementing Auctions, Vote/Rare Crates, and mcMMO on Skyblock. These features are highly enjoyed by players on Survival and we believe that players on Skyblock will love them just as much. More details about these features and how they will function on Skyblock as opposed to Survival will be released once the server is open.


When you guys join the server, you will notice that the economy is different from the Survival server. Buy prices are higher and sell prices are lower in the server shop. This is intentional. A key aspect of a fun Skyblock server is generating your island from nothing and pushing yourself to survive with minimal materials. This is why the economy will be more stretching.

There are many more features and unique plugins that you will find yourself enjoying once the server is open that I can't cover in this post. We are all so glad to finally announce this project to you guys, and we hope you guys have as much fun playing the server as we think you will.

Note: As with all new servers, there are bound to be bugs that need squashing and glitches that need fixing. Be sure to report any issues you experience once the server is open on the forums, and you may be compensated for your efforts in improving Shadow Kingdom as a whole. ;)

We will see everyone on 3/18/2017 for the big release!

Thank you,

Hello players,

I'd like to begin this post by congratulating our new staff members and staff promotions on Shadow Kingdom:
  • Necropoli(Voidaccount) - Promoted to Assistant
  • LetzTaco - Promoted to Assistant
  • Nqz - Promoted to Assistant
  • RamonaWinchester - Promoted to Moderator
I'm looking forward to the greatness that will come of you all.

In other news, many of you older players remember a server named "oldcreative," which was an archive server for the old Creative server before the reset. This server has not been used for many months now, and hardly had any player connections, so we've decided to use the hosting power from oldcreative and add a new server to the network. The type of server and features will be announced at a later date.

Lastly, there has been a slight change in rules on the Survival server. Its come to our attention that Shulker Boxes cannot be locked via LWC, like chests. This makes them vulnerable to stealing and raiding, uncontrollably. Because of this, we're promptly adding a new rule regarding Shulker Boxes to the Official In-Game Rules. Please be sure you check the official rules regularly for updates and edits.

Thank you and happy mining!
