2023 Q3 Quarterly Meeting

Thanks to all the folks who attended our quarterly meeting! If you missed it and would like to see the VOD you can do so here!

If you want the minutes of that meeting they are available for folks to read here!

The next quarterly meeting will be on Saturday, November 18th at 1pm US central.

Minecraft Servers

DS9 August Petitions (and build contest announcements!)

DS9 independent worker’s day parade

Wow what an incredible parade! If you’re interested in the work folks put into this parade check out this VOD! If you’re not already a member and are interested in joining us for our next parade you can join Joe’s patreon to support him and gain access to our minecraft servers. Our next parade is the last one at B’Hala!

Thank you to team Deztiny for hosting!

If you don’t have time to watch the VOD something exciting to note is that Quinn and Joe plan to record a new version of Quinn’s song Lines. This is inspired by server member Phali’s club dance remix, so keep an eye out for that!

Folks should note that August’s Everstorm will go down on August 31st! This is because Everstorm cycles will now align with monthly newsletters, so be sure to get your obituaries and survivor’s messages sent in a timely manner!

  • Magenta could not fend off the pillagers and the trident-wielding drowned at the same time
  • SuperStone was cornered in a cave by a heavily-enchanted skeleton.
  • ChefNutmeg was sniped by a skelly lighting up the nether fortress.
  • Ellas died to a tree climbing drowned, they lasted about 20 minutes
  • Eclogues withered away due to hubris
