Scheduled Server/Forum Maintenance Post Update News!
Hey guys!

We have now successfully updated to Minecraft 1.10! :D

There are a few housekeeping and plugin changes that happened. In preparation for the VIP Changes that'll be out on Monday, we have switched the Vote Shop plugin to BeastTokens. All your balances have been converted, however we are still having issues with voting on PMC and Minecraft Forum. Be warned we will still be tinkering with this for the next day or so. You will not be able to get new tokens for voting until this is fixed. The Vote Shop is also down until Monday when the new perks go live!

Changes will also be dropping in Buycraft on Monday, so stay tuned.

We have also updated LWC which locks your chests, doors, etc. Because of this, anything you had locked or password protected will need to be re-locked.

VIP World will come down on November 1st so get your save in here ASAP.

*clear throat* Polar Bears!

Downtime (Resolved) 1.10 Update
Hi everyone - the update to 1.10 is now in-progress.

All servers will be down while the update takes place, the should be back up with 1.10 later today.

Back up! Go read the update post here
:91:~Happy Halloween, Nerdcrafteria~:91:

Yes, we're a little early, but you can never have too much spoopy in your life! :eek:

There is a spooky forest that has appeared to the northeast of Nerdtropolis. What is contained within its shadowy clutches? And who exactly lives in that house on the hill? I would be wary, Nerdfighters. Spirits inhabit these dark woods. If you wish to brave the dangers, visit /warp halloween.

Venturing far enough into the forest one will discover a dance floor where the ghosts and goblins boogie! You may also find some staff hanging around.

As happened last year, staff again will be handing out candy for trick or treating. When they are available, they will be at this dance floor with music playing and the colorful discoball over the area will be lit up. To receive candy say in chat or /msg the mod saying "Trick or Treat!" Try to collect them all!
Some things to note:
-Staff will announce when Trick or Treating is happening. Please do not bother them about the activity. They will host it periodically throughout the day.
-The goal is to collect the most individual items. While you are welcome to collect multiple of one, your final count will only be unique candy items.
-Players are welcome to trade the candy amongst themselves, but cannot sell them. Anyone found selling the items will be disqualified from the event.

Trick or treating will be happening from now until October 31st.
Whoever collects the most candy will win a special Halloween Elytra!

Important Updates VIP Package Updates!
It’s here! The time has come! Nobody panic!

We are very excited to announce the newly updated Lifetime and Temp VIP Packages that will be available for donation starting Monday, October 24th.

Before I get into the nitty gritty details of these long-awaited changes, we wanted to say thank you. Thank you for your patience with us these past few months as this project got discussed, debated, pushed back, and overcame more than a few technical hurdles. We ask for your continued support as I’m sure there will be a few more bumps as everything falls into place.

As I said back in May when I started taking over the Head Administrator role, working within the EULA regulations is not the easiest task, but we’re trying our best as a staff to give you guys some great stuff in exchange for your support of the Foundation to Decrease World Suck. Your money goes to some fantastic causes each year during the Project for Awesome, and Hank and the rest of the staff definitely want to thank you for that generosity. We’ve done our best to try and make everything fair to you guys while also keeping in mind what’s best for the server overall.

With that said, let’s dive in!

Scheduled Server/Forum Maintenance 1.10 Update Incoming!
Hello everyone -

As news trickles in for 1.11 (Llama Hype!) - we wanted to let you guys know that the Senior Admins and I have set a date for us to update to 1.10!! We will be bringing down the server on Saturday, October 22nd early in the morning to update all servers and update a few plugins as well.

Server Event Solara Needs Heroes!
It seems like dark forces intend to interrupt the server's birthday celebrations:

A long time ago, when Solara was still young, a mythical creature came to town to spread chaos and despair. Back then, sorcerers and witches of Solara were able to freeze the dangerous beast to stop it from destroying the whole town. They decided to hide its presence from the people of Solara so they wouldn't live in constant fear of the creature. A few generations later, the event was forgotten.

But the invisibility spell wore off!

There's no way of hiding it now!

The Hydra is attacking Solara!

It has been attacking for ages.

If the invisibility spell is gone how can we be sure the spell that keeps the monster in check will persist? Is that magic slowly wearing off?

A dark portal appeared underneath the Hydra. We need heroes, brave enough to explore what lies beyond it. Can you find a way to renew the spell that protected Solara for centuries?

Brave citizens of Nerdcrafteria, please come to /warp soquest and help us save Solara!


Co-Mayor of Solara

Once there was a verdant land. People came and they farmed and they built and they mined. And when they mined, deep within the bones of the land, they found an abundance of precious ores.


More people came. They cut down the forests, they dug up the land, they tore open the rock to get at the ores. And as the people worked, a hunger grew. The people began to fight, and to steal, and to divide themselves. And then the hunger divided itself from them.


And as the people fought, it ate. And as the people hoarded, it ate. And as the people stole, it ate. And as it ate, it grew ravenous. It rooted itself in the land and devoured all it could. Crops withered, plants died, and the land was no longer quite so verdant.


The people abandoned the land and fled, but the ravenous hunger followed, devouring anything in its ever growing reach. Finally, in desperation, the land was sundered to contain its spread.


The ravenous hunger found itself trapped, but no less hungry. It turned back to what little land it had left and ate all it could. It ate the grass and swallowed whole trees. It drank the rivers and lakes dry. When it had none of those left, it gnawed down the mountains leaving little but dust. Some resisted it. Some mountains repelled it, some trees held fast, some lakes remained. Try as it might, some things would not be taken by the hunger. As it fought it grew exhausted. Finally it settled deep beneath its dusty wasteland and slept.


Ages passed. New people found themselves within this land. They began to...
Emerald Falls: Finally Open!


The Story of Emerald Falls

Captain Lemon glanced at the men shuffling around the ship’s deck. All looked weary and worse-for-wear, though they had good reason to be. They had been sailing for months with no sign of any land since leaving their home. Their provisions were running low, but Captain Lemon feared that returning to their industry-stripped homeland with no news would be the end of the Emerald Trading Company and everything she held dear. As her heart was sinking with the setting sun, the captain happened to notice that the rays appeared to be bending slightly. Despite countless crushed hopes, she once again scaled the mast to the crow’s nest, and pulled out a spyglass. Peering through it, she felt her her sorrows melt away - land! “Land ho!” she cried to her men below, and grinned at the shocked expressions on their faces. Instantly the tired crew sprang to life and bustled about the deck, adjusting the sails and rigging to put them on course towards the discovery. It took them several hours to draw near enough to the island to see any real detail. As they got closer, they began to notice that what they had originally believed to be hills were in fact giant trees! Every once in awhile, they would see massive shapes swoop up out of these trees and stain the dusk sky an inky black, blotting out the stars, before diving back down into the...
