Nerdcrafteria

DFTBA

On this day two years ago, on March 4th of 2016, a few days after we said good bye to our original map, the current main map on the economy server opened its doors for the first time. It was an exciting new start. We all started back at zero, with Nerdtropolis, Solara, and Thistledown, waiting to be explored and populated with awesome and interesiting new builds.
Since then, five more town's have been added to Nerdcrafteria's custom made beautiful landscape: Playertowns Emerald Falls, Nouveau Batiment and the recent Drakerberg, as well as two more staff administrated towns, Scythian Peaks and Viridian Isles.
Everything was new and exciting and together we managed to create a beautifull new place to meet our friends and relax.

To celebrate this second mapiversary staff is holding a town themed staff auction at 4pm EST today. Each of the current 8 towns will have one chest dedicated to them. The items of each chest reflect the towns style and atmosphere and will also include at least one unique, uncraftable lore item.
We hope to see you around at the auction house at /warp auction later today!

On top of that we also want to value the community and teamwork that led us to this point:

Today we re-open the house point meters at /warp witchcrafteria. About an hour after this post, they will start accepting new items that will, should you be able to completely fill the meters, unlock for different rewards:

Emerald Rain
This reward will cause hostile mobs to have a chance of dropping emeralds. This will last one week....​

A gleaming city of media and games, host to magnificent apartments housing hundreds of players as they navigate their first steps in Nerdcrafteria. Marble statues and parthenons and coliseums surrounded by vineyards and an ocean ripe for trade. The largest tree in the world, with floating islands and plots nestled under dim green branches. A forest creeping with oversized inhabitants and a rich vein of emeralds beneath the jungle canopy. Dozens of variously-biomed islands, linked together by intricate bridges. Shining spires of quartz and coal, windows and walls made complex and the whole town dedicated entirely to art. Collossal geodes and crystals hidden in an ice-capped mountain, away from the modern village just outside. A newly-discovered land of moss and dragons, where spires of rock rise from the sea to support viking structures of old.


We’ve built a lot over these past few years on Nerdcrafteria, and with our 2nd birthday since reset just around the corner (that’s right, we get two birthdays now) it’s time to celebrate our collective achievements. Come one, come all to the Nerdcrafteria Town Auction! Each chest is dedicated and themed on a different town, with plenty of goodies inside and as always one super-rare lore item!

The Auction will be held on

MARCH 4th
4PM EST

in the Auction House on the economy server (/warp auction to get there!).

Hi folks,

see those gaps in the code fence on the right? Right...there, yes that one.
There's also one on the back left. That's not good.

And because it's not good our hosting provider (the company that runs the physical server) will has closed them.
Starting from Jan 10th, 4am EST the forums will be offline.
We don't know how work-intensive the fix is, so we also don't know for how long the forums will be offline.

See you on the other side, friends.

Edit: The server should be back up and running as normal~

Ehehe, too much broth. Server is having hiccups and trouble staying up long. We are brewing a soothing tea.


All engines running again. Choo Choo! Broth was the answer to survive the crisis, it seems.

Get out of bed Yui, I know you're not that sick.

Hi everyone,

quick PSA: Someone forgot to close the windows to the server room. It started to snow in and now the server is down with a cold.
We are aware of the cold and are urgently brewing hot apple cider and collecting blankets to get the server healthy and up and running again.

The medical team will inform once the crisis is passed.

As the Nerdcrafterian nights grow ever chillier, longer, and darker, the citizens of Scythian Peaks would like to invite everyone to brave the northern snows and come warm their toes at...

*~The Winter Market!~*

There you will find piping hot apple cider, creamy eggnog, fluffy baumkuchen, and all sorts of little goodies if you're looking for something for the special people in your life.

Just use /warp wintermarket to come and enjoy some perfectly roasted chestnuts by the bonfire! Or perhaps some fruitcake's more your speed? Whatever your tastes, come partake in the festivities and join us as we chase away the long, chilly nights~
