This Friday, the 2018 Summer contest will begin! We know It's short notice, but we hope this doesn't cause to many problems, and means you'll get plenty of time to work on your builds!

We've chosen the theme "Science and Magic" as we believe this is an untapped area of build that should be encouraged more.

On behalf of Pizza and all of us on the mod team, thank you, nameste, and good luck!

Hello fellow Westerosi! Arkilstorm and myself and the spare builder or two have labored over the past few months to bring you the glories and plenty of Highgarden! We will be opening the main town for building and recording to gather footage for the V&A exhibit. The build will start on Sunday, May 27th at 3pm GMT (11am EST)

What we are doing is building the houses, gradients for in-place structures and infrastructure construction (roads, ditches, trees) and depending on how quickly this goes, may even start on the sprawl and other villages. Remember, this is one of the most prosperous and wealthy areas in the Seven Kingdoms! So, this means we will be coordinating via discord, if at all possible.

So, be prepared to build cute Reach houses y’all!

A Game of Blocks MMO
Premise
Ascent through the ranks of Westerosi Politics, from a common peasant to a high lord during the confusion of the “War of the Five Kings”. Gain riches by trade, make allies by clever diplomacy, sow chaos with false truces and win fierce battles in your pursuit towards the Iron Throne.

Genre
First person role-playing real-time strategy

Key Features
  • Build your own future by participating in a player-dependent political framework that affects every individual in game.
  • Team up with other players to manage all aspects of a Westerosi Family: gain resources, trade, raise taxes, make friends and allies, fight enemies.
  • Combine the Crafting and Gathering of Minecraft with the political complexity of the Seven Kingdoms and the vast continent of Westeros.
  • Explore a giant persistent map set amidst an alternate “War of the Five Kings”.
  • Participate in real-time politics & social interactions.

General Gameplay
  • A massively multiplayer online experience in which the player may progress through 3 stages of political influence each providing a new set of challenges.
  • As a Commoner, its all about advancing your character: PvE (& possibly PvP) questing & exploration are the main challenges.
  • As a Kinsman, you start to shape the fate of Westeros by joining a Family. Choose your friends and foes carefully, as this stage relies heavily on PvP interactions through trade or combat or intrigues.
  • As a Warden, you are in command of an entire region by making political decisions about taxes, bonuses, war and peace. How long can you manage to stay on top before your peasants turn on you?
  • Choose 1 out of 3 classes that define your character and develop a playstyle that you prefer: Warrior,...

A number of serious security vulnerabilities affecting multiple CPU architectures were recently disclosed by Google's Project Zero team. In order to address the disclosed vulnerabilities, the physical hardware on which our server resides will need to undergo maintenance at 2018-01-19 12:00 AM EST. This is the first of several separate maintenances that will be necessary to fully mitigate these vulnerabilities. This maintenance specifically patches the Meltdown vulnerability; the Spectre vulnerability will be addressed in a future maintenance cycle. We will inform you of these maintenance cycles via additional tickets.

This downtime should last less than 2 hours. Thank you for your understanding in advance!
