Hello gentlemen of this forum.
Allow me to introduce myself, I'm Guy, whereas my ingame name is Arriona, and I was pointed to these forums by a friend of mine who at one time played with you all, I believe. I'm here to speak to you about a server that may interest you.
The Minecraft Center Server, of which I am a part of, began as a small community server several years ago. Since then it has grown slowly and steadily. The server was created and centered around the idea of factional combat - having player made nations, organizations, trade unions, and a variety of other forms of clans and factions, sorting it out amongst themselves and carving a chunk of the world for them to settle, either by diplomacy or militaristic expansion. It's up to the players to decide. And that's what I think is what makes this server unique to other Kingdoms PVP servers.
Our newest launch will be happening in a few hours, and I invite you all to come and see for yourselves the server and forum. Unique aspects that I think are worth mentioning to you all is our unique armor plugin, which will be implemented in short order after our launch, which features unique attributes to each armor set and giving each its own particular use. We're also going to be making use of proper, buildable ships as well as cannons, to make sieges and ship to ship combat as engaging as possible. We also have our own wiki page, that includes pages on the server's multiple iterations, factions such as the Dwarves, the Order, the Brotherhood, many others, and extensive player made lore (even some religions, be sure to check out the Cake Crusade as a perfect example of religion, politics, and war that can span continents on our server)
Now, I'll allow myself some indulgence, and ask you all to read on.

About two server iterations back, I started a small faction named the Republic of Palamaine, and it grew to about eleven members at its height. For awhile we enjoyed a supremacy over the server after a brief but intense war against the Ottoman Emirate that saw us occupy their capital and fill a power vacuum at the time. Our Golden age was bright, but brief.
In time the League War began, that saw our near destruction and larger powers form that quickly eclipsed us. After that iteration of the server had ended and a new map was generated, I as well as other members were preoccupied with other callings, real life being the obstacle it always is
Though a new age is dawning with the beginning of this server, and I call upon you all to join me. As of now the faction hierarchy is unformed, though I'm leaning on forming a constitutional monarchy, with a proper parliament and positions of governance for members that show active contributions, and possibly an elected monarch that reigns for a set term.
The theme that I have favored would be to start off with the first settlement being of late medieval-high renaissance, reminiscent of the Gothic Era. Subsequent settlements would show a progression through the ages, and culminating in a proper city of the enlightenment age, with broad avenues, gardens, and low-lying defensive walls at the outskirts of the city, where the borders would be secured by star forts and other defensive towers (as well as any personal player made castles, fortlets, and the like. )
Ultimately there will still be player freedom to choose what they build and in what style, and obviously they have their choice in deciding what faction to join. Though I ask of you all to consider Palamaine as a viable option and one that would welcome all of you.
