    Hello Ioncraft,

    We've officially added Towny to the server! Towny has completely replaced Factions. If you don't already know, Towny nomad-resident-town-nation hierarchy system. The Towny world will still be pure-survival. Players just starting out, who do not belong to any town or nation, are called nomads. Residents are players who are citizens of a town. Towns may be started for 1000 ions (our new official virtual currency) by players who are the rank of Patron and up. Players who start towns are called Mayors, and Mayors can hire assistants to recruit new Residents and expand the town's territory. Mayors and their assistants are in charge of claiming territory, as well as issuing a tax to your Residents to pay for the mandatory 100 ions/day* upkeep cost, as well as any tax your nation may set. Territory claimed by a town is completely protected from fire, PvP, grief, and monsters. Nations are a group of towns, like an empire. A nation may be started for 2500 ions by Legends and up. Players who start nations are called Kings/Queens. The daily upkeep cost for a nation is 250 ions/day*; therefore, nations may charge a tax to all towns under it to help pay for the upkeep cost. If the upkeep costs are not met, then the town or nation will be deleted.

    *Daily upkeep costs are subject to change.

    How Are Ions Earned?
    Ions are primarily earned through trade. Throughout the spawn village of Winterfell are Admin Chestshops where you can buy and sell various items to the server. When you establish your own town, or build a shop in a town, you can create your own chestshop! Just follow this guide. To check your current ion balance, type /econ in-game. To pay someone directly, use the following command: /econ pay <username> <amount>. You can also purchase ions directly from our webstore! Go to www.shop.ioncraft.org > Ions & XP!

    More Towny Information
    In Other News...
    We've updated our Webstore! You can now purchase the ability to spawn heads and headmaps, as well as the Unlimited Plots perk. Additionally, you can now purchase 5,000 ions for $4.95 USD. Starting today, you can use coupon code HWEEN13 to receive 30% off on all Donor Ranks and Commands & Abilities! Additionally, players who purchase a Custom Rank will receive a 10,000 ion bonus! As of October 13, we've had $0 in donations this month! Our server costs a minimum of $80 USD/month to host and pay off other expensive bills. So please, every little bit counts. <3

    We've added a new minigame called Quicksand (also known as TNT Run)! Open your /compass and click the TNT icon to warp there!

    We've added a new Backpack plugin for the Towny world! For donors, this plugin increases the amount of available storage you can have in your inventory. VIPs get 9 extra slots, Patrons 18, Elites 27, Legends 36, Masters 45, and Customs get 54. When you die, items in your backpack will also be dropped. Type /backpack in-game to open your Backpack!

    Keep an eye out for more updates coming your way, and please think about donating to help keep our server alive!

    Have fun,
    Ioncraft Staff

    When I bought Elite, it said that I would be awarded a certain amount of ions. I never recieved those ions because I bought it during the Faction World Emerald Era. Will I be receiving those ions?

    Sounds cool. How do we get there? Is it still /warp fw? If so, seems to be down.

    For the ions, does this bring back the /job or something like that?

    As of now, we don't have a Jobs plugin installed. Currently, the only way to earn ions is through trading with chestshops or by purchasing them from our Webstore. There are a few admin shops around the spawn village of Winterfell you can sell things to.

    The beauty of Towny is that the economy can be easily controlled to avoid players from getting super rich and inflating the economy. We can adjust the adminshops as well as raise or lower the town/nation upkeep costs.
