Ambush enemy factions and steal their dropped experience orbs!

New Server Hardware!

Thank you to all our donators!  Warlands and all PVP-related maps will be running on the new server!
32GB Quad-Channel Ram
i7 6-Core @ 3.2 ghz
80 Player Slots

New Factions Ruleset & Points System

Players who are killed now respawn at the Warlands spawn castle, not at their /f home

Power Changes:
Players now have 8 max power (was 12)
Dying causes you to lose 2 power (was 4)
Players now lose 1 power per day of inactivity (was 0.5)

Territory Changes:
Trying to place/destroy blocks in enemy land causes 4 damage
Faction moderators no longer bypass owned land restrictions
Factions cannot claim land that is not touching land they already own

New Death Back System:

After dying, items are no longer automatically brought back into your inventory.
You are now required to use the command: /death back to retrieve your items. You have 5 minutes to use this command after dying or your items will be dropped.
Items are no longer dropped after disconnecting while dead.  If you can log back into the server within 5 minutes from the time you disconnected, you can retrieve your items using /death back.
WARNING: Only use ‘/death back’ in the world that you last died.  Using ‘/death back’ in the wrong world will cause your items to be dropped on the ground!

PVP Item Drop Mechanics

In addition to the new /death back system, when you die in Warlands you will drop some of your items!
Drop 10% of your items!
Drop 15% of your items
Drop 25% of your items

Stacks of items will lose a % of their total size.  You will also drop a % of your unstackable items.
