Hello players!

I am pleased to announce the final sale of the year. Until the 3rd 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). :)

On top of that, the frosty winter version of our lobby has now been released as well, so check it out, if you haven't already!

I would also like to mention the two other events that are currently running until the 3rd of January:

Creative Build Contest - Winter is Coming
Compete in this winter-themed contest with other players for fame and prizes in the form of store coupons and build points! Check out the details here.

Towny Winter Event
Complete a number of challenges fitting the season to obtain nice rewards and unique, personalized items (we will think of a more creative name for this event next time XD)! Check out the details here.

With this I would like to thank everybody who has been with us through this troublesome year. A server like ours is shaped by its community, by the people who play on it, and the people who make sure it keeps working. Without any of them it could not exist. Therefore, I am extremely thankful for everybody who has helped making it the awesome place it is in the past and present!

Best of luck to all of you!

Hello everybody!

We are happy to announce a new event for Towny to run at the same time as the Creative Build Contest! During past events, you were able to get special items by donating. However, this time you can unlock your rewards, including a personalized item, by completing a number of frosty tasks between now and January the 3rd!

First of all, here is the list of all objectives. You can get that list in-game by using /winter:
  • Place 2000 blocks of snow
  • Place 2000 spruce logs
  • Place 2500 lanterns
  • Break 2000 packed ice blocks
  • Break 5000 cocoa beans
  • Break 7500 layers of snow
  • Kill 100 strays
  • Craft 250 cakes
  • Craft 500 firework charges
  • Craft 5000 cookies
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 8 of them, you can use them in /winterprize to claim the final reward. This reward consists of a shulker box containing these items:

And on top of that, you will get your very own Festive Sweater. Since we were not able to decide on a color, you can choose which one you prefer ;)

Each one comes with a personalized name and lore:

If you have any questions or feedback regarding this event, do not hesitate to leave a reply.

We hope you all have the best holidays possible during times like this!

*This also means, that changing your in-game name will prevent them from working. In that case you can contact an admin to trade you working ones.

The results are in, with a big majority for the theme Winter Is Coming! Here are the final results:

Theme Description: The summer is but a distant memory and the land is now shrouded in white. With the frost and snow comes an air of mystery. What could possibly be hidden out there in the storm?
