Hello players,

Today, I would like to officially release a project that has been in the works for quite some time now: the fourth official server on the Shadow Kingdom Network called Kingdoms! This server will be a new, appropriately named, survival server, based around PvP and obtaining as many "resource points" as you possibly can.

I'm going to do my best to answer any FAQ's:

What is "Kingdoms"?
Kingdoms is a gamemode similar to the popular Factions plugin, but with a few key differences. When you join the server, you can immediately choose to join or create a new Kingdom. When you are a part of a Kingdom, you will have to obtain "resource points" for your Kingdom to claim land, buy automatic defense weapons, upgrade your forces, invade other Kingdoms, and so much more! When the server is released, simply type /k info and the plugin will run you through an in-depth guide on how this plugin functions if you are confused.

What is the difference between the Towny server and Kingdoms?
Glad you asked! Our Towny server has been a huge success on Shadow Kingdom. As of now, Towny has the biggest community of all Shadow Kingdom servers. Our Towny server is based on the economy, since actions such as griefing, raiding, stealing, scamming, etc. are against the rules. This has made the Towny server a much safer and "laid-back" experience. Kingdoms, on the other hand, will be PvP-oriented, and griefing, raiding, stealing, etc. is encouraged. The server will be running full 1.11.2, but as opposed to Towny, there will be no PvP cool-down timer, which will make PvP much more enjoyable.

What new server features will Kingdoms have?
Kingdoms will have many of the features that Towny has, but you will notice some aspects of the gameplay will be much different. Features such as mcMMO, Backpacks, VoteParties, and Crates will be present on this new server. A feature you will notice is different is the Auctions plugin. On Towny, the Auctions plugin displays a message in chat when a player auctions an item. On Kingdoms, the Auction will be GUI-based, using a plugin called AuctionHouse. By default, everyone can list up to 1 item in the AuctionHouse at one time. This allows for unlimited items to be auctioned at once.

When will this amazing server be released?
We are aiming for a release on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017.

We hope you guys all love this server. If you guys have any suggestions for this new server, please feel free to...
Hello players,

I'm so excited and happy to announce to all of you the release of our new Lobby for Shadow Kingdom! Please everyone thank @JST (jstoeckm2) for his amazing building skills!

When you join the network using mc.shadowkingdom.org, you should spawn right in the new lobby. We have many planned features and little easter eggs to be added to this new lobby very soon, so stick around to see!

As always, be sure to report any issues that you run in to in-game, and enjoy the new Lobby!

Thank you,
- SK Staff Team
