After many, many, many suggestions from the community and a solid amount work from the team, we are proud to finally announce the upcoming Creative Build Contest! To help to get everybody involved, we have composed a poll to allow you to determine the ideal theme for your contest.

The schedule for this contest currently sits as follows:
  • 26th April - End of Poll
  • 1st May - Contest Commences
  • 15th May - Contest Ends
  • 22nd May - Contest Results
Everyone will be given two weeks to work on their submissions.
Full details on the contest will be posted on the commencement date.

We have four excellent themes we have handpicked that you can choose from:
  • Undiscovered Civilizations
    What secrets lay beneath the rocky earth, under the deepest ocean bodies or within thick jungles? What civilizations live out past our reaches? Build your ideal undiscovered world and reap glory for your discoveries.
  • Journey Through Time
    Time travel is real, and you've just stepped out of your machine into the great unknown. Where do you, intrepid explorer, find yourself today? Take us on a journey through the ages to a time long gone, or a world we have yet to experience.
  • Space Exploration
    Spaceships and cities. Asteroids and astronauts. The very furthest corners of the universe are your playground in this space-themed building contest.
  • Rise of Industry
    Hot steam, firey coals and the smell of progress. It's 1800 and the great industrial revolution is in full swing. Industry of all kind is booming with grand machines, new inventions and a whole world of opportunity has opened up. Show us what you've got, inventor.
More information on each theme is included in the poll!

Hello players,

Spring is here, but the general quarantine and social-distancing are not over yet. For that reason, we have decided to launch a Don't-Touch-Your-Face sale! In opposite to the last sale, the discount includes server specific perks like crate keys (towny) and coins (creative). All items are off by 40% until April the 26th. As a small addition you will get a bottle of limited-edition SK Hand Sanitizer:

Thank you for your support! <3

Hello Players,

As many of you may recall, Shadow Kingdom officially turns 5 years old on April 1st, 2020. In March of 2015 after leaving our previous server, we began working on Shadow Kingdom as a small creative plot server where we knew our builds would be safe from random destruction or straight up deletion. With a small team of friends and a passion for the Minecraft community, we've managed to stay true to this mission throughout all of these years. Although we've expanded a lot since then into the survival realm with our popular Towny servers, we will always remember our roots in the creative building community.

During a time like this when all the news seems to be negative, we want to do something positive. So from now until April 5th, we have an early 40% off sale for Shadow Kingdom's birthday on all donator ranks, as well as some server-specific perks in-game for those who cannot buy ranks! Click here to get your donator ranks today!

Special perks:

Double vote rewards on both servers!


20% Jobs money boost for all Jobs!

  • All donation ranks are global and life-time. This means that purchased ranks will transfer to all current and future Shadow Kingdom servers and will exist as long as the server does!
  • The Early Birthday Sale is effective for all Global Ranks and Rank Upgrades.
  • Be sure to type your in-game username accurately with correct capitalization when purchasing.
  • After you purchase a rank, please allow up to 5 minutes for the rank to become active in-game.
Create a thread here if you have any questions or issues with a donation.


To finish off this announcement, I would just like to say thank you to all the members of this community who have kept Shadow Kingdom active and thriving throughout the last 5 years. I'm so grateful for this community and happy to see what it has developed into within this time.
