Hello everyone! This post is a lengthy one. There will be an index just below where you can fast-forward to sections you care about, but I encourage you to give the whole thing a read at some point soon, as this post contains information important to everyone. First, I wanted to extend my sympathy to anyone whose 2020 was just as bad as mine and many others, and I want to say that I hope your 2021 is much better than last year. Without further ado, let’s talk HollowWorld 2021.

Over the past few months, you have heard through whispered sneak peeks and general, band-aid level coverage just what is coming next on the server. Today, we’re going to go in-depth into HollowCrafting, HollowWorld’s next big step forward. We’re extremely excited to put this into the server for everyone to enjoy, and we simply couldn’t keep it behind closed doors any...

PSA: Player Safety Concern

To the HollowWorld Community, and others:

This will be quite an impactful announcement, so please make sure to read it in full. If you feel uncomfortable or know more of the topic, feel free to reach out to Moderation if you feel the need to.

Since its conception, HollowWorld has grown to be a big community more so than it is just a Minecraft Roleplaying server. Even those that no longer participate In-Game still participate and contribute. We are proud to be the community that we are, with a great many participants. As you all know, Staff and Moderation Team do what they can to ensure the rules of The King's Law are followed. This is, of course, done to maintain the harmony of HollowWorld and safeguard it as being a safe place where as many people as possible can go to RP and have fun. Following the addition of a new member of our community last year, old members of our community and members of other MC RP communities relayed hearsay of them being a predator. No one had...

[IMPORTANT] Pocket Migration

  • 2,141
  • 79
Hello all,

As I'm sure anyone who's ventured there has noticed, the pocket world has nearly unplayable amounts of lag and is generally hurting. Under the hood it's eating about as many server resources as the actual main map, so we're going to generate a fresh one without the 8 years of inactive pockets that need to be loaded.

The timeline for this is about two weeks; on the 9th of January I'm going to make the new map and start migrating pockets. At this point, the old pocket world will be inaccessible, and /pocket should take you to the new map. Sit tight while this is happening, I'll try to power through them all as quickly as possible.

If you have a pocket, I would like you to fill out the form below in a reply to this thread. The old world will still exist if anyone really needs to get in to it/move their pocket, but I'll see evil things if people start asking about it immediately after the migration.

On a...

Change in Abstract

Good evening Hollowworld,

Over the past few months, many of you have doubtless noticed players running around with gold plus signs (+) in front of their names, but with regular colored titles. These players mostly have been related to the Events Dept., so-called "player DMs" granted permissions such as TP or vanish. Others have been working for the Lore Dept. to loreify items in-game. Many of these same players were granted on-forum permissions to view tickets related to their department, or move threads in the applicable nodes. These players have been wearing the "Hired Guns" banner to denote that they have applied to and been granted permission to volunteer in an official capacity with one of our depts.

These changes have been part of an ongoing restructure to our volunteer work force, and now at long last, we are cresting the last hill.

Our volunteer force is being split into two groups: Admin and Staff.

Admin
shall be the team that manages the...

Harvesting Plugin + Beta Period

] Project Overview [

Hello everyone,

Some of you have heard of the crafting rework teased at a while back. The short of it is that we're working on a system to standardize IC crafting and progress by making it plugin-based, with an experience system in the style of a traditional RPG. You gain experience by crafting actual in-game items from IC resources found in the world, and can name and customize the lore text of the things you make. As you progress you gain access to more difficult recipes, and can eventually choose a specialized branch of crafting to make expert crafts with intrinsically magical materials.

One of the stated goals of the project is to introduce more fantasy elements that are part of 'daily life' RP. Many new materials are being introduced for this with a range of magical and fantastical effects, from a metal that glows perpetually with heat to a sturdy wood that's near as light as air, and most can be found and used simply by exploring the map and...

Renting Property in Storm's Landing

With the changing of heads that’s gone on with Storm’s Landing, and trying to keep player involvement up, rent has fallen to the wayside several times. With one last restructure it is our hope to bring all builds under the same rules and make the process of renting quicker and easier for staff and players alike. While the new system will take getting used to, it will be an overall better system for renting in Storm’s Landing.

Greetings Alterans,

Below follow two updates pertaining to conflicts on Discord and how to best contact each member of staff respectively.

Discord & You: Staff Involvement
Due to a recent influx of inquiries pertaining to Moderation's policy regarding matters that occur on Discord, we felt the need to clarify through an announcement.
The HW Discord is subject to the HW Code of Conduct, which is outlined in the Discord & You thread. Conflict that occurs within personal Discord chats/messages are subject to the same manner of guidelines outlined within the 'Involving Staff in RP/OOC Disputes' section of this thread.

Should anyone exhibit offensive/harmful behaviour within the official HW Discord Server, we encourage you to report it. Should it take place on Discord within personal chats or PMs, we advise leaving the chat or...
