Lenten Everstorm closes

Survivors of last month’s everstorm have shared their final reports:

  • MJ went exploring beyond the safe glow of torchlight. At nightfall he began pillaring up and watched the sunset. It was a good world.
  • Laxmi13 survived because apparently her real body doesn’t understand 2D movement anymore.
  • SuperStone developed new and exciting ways of not dying, then stopped playing before actually needing them.
  • samihiggins helped create a commune below spawn. She leaves behind many farms and many more hours in her pursuit of perfectly enchanted bows for all.
  • Magenta spent more time landscaping that she did caving and she build her first double-spawner mob grinder.
  • Phali successfully defended Voids’ legacy, then took Deliverance and some supplies on his back and headed for the sunrise in search of new adventures.

April Everstorm opens

A new iteration of Everstorm is here! The reset is planned for May 9th, so come be the first to die! Or rather the next, as we already have our first obituary!

  • MJ was shot in the back by a skeleton while trying to escape up a staircase.
