The Scholar District

If one were to zigzag though the city, it might take them quite some time to locate the small plaza that seems to not keep up with the architecture around it. Though in reality, the Scholar District encompasses much more than those outdated, teal roofs., stretching from the Azure Spire, all the way to the wall separating it from the New Ithanian District.

Due to it’s massive and arbitrary size, it’s hard to pin down a similar structure to the buildings. In originality, the Scholar District was made up of buildings primarily stonework and colourful windows, featuring blue roofs as well. However, expansions were made, and architecture changed, with the district being littered with all kinds of different buildings, leaving the original plaza rather behind. Some utilizing warm bricks, some coloured walls, and some with mainly wooden structures. This is certainly leagues different than most other districts, which generally have a uniform set of materials and objects used in their structural makeup. The typical cobbled roads are the only ones throughout the district, as expected. That being said, the district is rather plain in this regard. A few sparse water features makeup some plazas, such as in front of the Azure Spire, while other roads simply just keep going to the next house. Deeper in the northernmost portion of the district, you can see bountiful colours of banners hanging across alleyways, or shop carts littering the roads, but unfortunately this isn’t synonymous with the rest of the area.

For the citizens, this is a rather common place to live, much like the main district would be. The majority of the buildings stretching across the district as residences for the middle class, with really no exception beyond the rare business or governmental building. Crime is about as normal as can be here, due to the district’s rather uncanny ability to be overlooked in its importance, though guards patrol normally as they would. Many question why it’s actually called the scholar’s district, nothing about the areas gives away the people living there are somehow more intelligent than in other areas of the city. However, it’s a question rather ignored, as the people living here are more focused on their day-to-day, rather than investigative questions of the reasoning for the naming for the district.

Notable landmarks are where this area begins to shine however. Outpacing the outdated buildings, the boring nature of it, and the calmness, is the Azure Spire. A behemoth of a buildings, the Spire stretches high as the eye can see, and the occupants inside doing their work to counteract some of the most powerful mages this city has seen. People living closest to the Azure Spire can even hear the screams and pleas of mages, which must account for why the rent is rather normal for even the nicest homes around it. The Merchant Guild building is also featured just barely at the fringe of the district. Business owners and burghers alike come and go from the large complex, all doing what they can for the overall success of their shops.

IC Setting:

  • To mages, this might just be the most avoided district, due to the Azure Spire being housed in the heart of the area.
  • It’s common for people to confuse portions of this district with the Main or Commerce, due to similar architecture.
  • Guard Patrols are as commonplace as they would any area, resulting in a pretty normal crime rate around the residences. However, the closer to the Azure Spire one gets, crime tends to dwindle off for obvious reasons.

MassiveMagic: New Crafting System!

Hello everyone!

It’s time for another MassiveMagic update. From here on out we will be giving everyone further insights into the fabled plugin step by step. In this post we’ll be talking all about the Massive crafting system coupled with MassiveMagic. The crafting will be a brother system to Magic. Working hand in hand by providing new items to be collected, used, and of course affect how you cast spells.

Crafting and how it works

The crafting system is practically endless in its possibilities and what can be added. Access to the system is granted through a separate GUI by clicking a magical crafting table with a special item. The GUI will open up on your screen, just like when you right click a crafting table but with a few major changes. The GUI has a 4×4 grid as opposed to the normal 3×3 you are used too, offering a plethora of new combinations of items to create and build. To the right of the GUI is a interactable group of buttons that allow you to view the several options you have for the ingredients in your table.

The items

A good portion of items will be craftable quite similarly to the vanilla version. However several will have a unique spin to them as to how you get to them. Take for instance a sword. In vanilla Minecraft, a sword is made with a stick and two blocks/ingots. With MassiveMagic, you will be able to take part in a much more immersive crafting system. A sword in our custom crafting system would perhaps be made with a hilt, pommel, guard, and a blade. But to acquire these items, you must craft them as well. So a hilt would require two sticks to craft. A blade would require two ingots. So on and so forth. We hope this will provide something far more interesting and engaging than what you receive from vanilla Minecraft. Following suit, we have several ways to not just craft items, but to also learn new items to craft. You can obtain new configurations through the process of blueprints! With these you’ll be able to pick up new things to craft in your already vast array to choose from. These could be dropped from quests, mobs, or just about anything really! Not only this but you’ll be able to learn recipes to craft things like Magic tomes to learn new spells to cast! There is virtually no limit to this system and can always be expanded on.

If you’d like to read an interview with the mastermind behind MassiveMagic, click this link to see our forums post!

As you can see this new system offers something for everyone! Whether you’re new, a collector, or need some end game content, this provides it all! In the comments below, we will be hosting another Q&A, but focused on the crafting system. Feel free to ask @ulumulu1510 or @Kaezir about anything in regards to the system. In fact, feel free to offer your ideas or suggestions; things you’d like to see. We’d happily engage in a conversation and try to provide as much feedback as possible.

Have a Massive day!
