Everstorm obituaries

No obituaries to report, phew!

The next reset is Tuesday, May 9th, there’s only one week left to enjoy this session of Everstorm!

Our server operator ToxxicGlitter already has a world prepared for the next iteration, what could he be planning?? All I have to share is this quote from Toxxic, “basically no armor again”.


The time for Vanillish’s update is here! Or rather, it will be here tomorrow! As per server operator Yirggzmb’s instructions Joe will be updating the server to 1.19.4. If you’re a player on the server be sure to use the right game version in your client!

You can expect Vanillish to go down tomorrow, May 2nd, at noon US Central time for this update.

We have a date selected for our next quarterly meeting! It is currently set for August 12th. This date may be changed in the future, in accordance with Joe’s availability. Most likely it would change to the 19th of August. We will give you the finalized date and time as we approach that time of the year.
