I love playing on this server, it is quite the challenge and also, a new way of thinking. What I mean is that there is no protection at all, so it real is a team effort, also, it tests our greedy natural ways. let's be honest, we all like to build and collect. This server prevents that to a certain extent, once your cache is found, it will vanish in short order!
I started a few days ago, earlier this week and found it interesting. As I was collecting bones and building a sky fort it dawned on me: " Hey, maybe being so close to spawn isn't such a good idea..." So we made haste to the outlands, waterworld if you will...
Maikerumine, Disableclouds, Twoelk, and Death's place..
I made a decent farm and house out in the water away from spawn, a few friends joined me and made a HUGE village. We had it all, even a Nyan Cat tail piece appended to the main house. No sooner than later, in the score of a day and a half, it was found, and on the third day the Nyan, apples, bread, tools (before crafting ore was obsolete), a few beds and torches were ganked! just like that! We all knew it was a possibility, but continued to build and farm as much as we could. Once the first set of "stranger danger" bone's were found, I knew it was all over, like your beautiful build of the house on the circle plantation, now ravaged. Just like spawn, ravaged! As of a few days ago, there was dirt and trees on the main island, now it is a cobble heap, sad sight yet interesting to see how the player dynamic works out in this world.
I really like what and where you are going with this server, it posts great challenge, similar to the Just Test server (My Fav) yet it offers new crafting and intense farming logistics to boot. I really like the simplistic nodes and recipes, it really adds to the depth of a different world. and since there is no way to horde items, that means the items (unless dropped through mining) are always in world and there for the taking.

What came first:
The Papyrus root or the sapling?
Good job, I just wanted to say.
