Archon is within the world, and the world will never be the same for its presence.
The dead walk among the living, and the living among the dead. Spirits are throughout the world, and the long dead have returned for all to see. People no longer die, new life cannot be kindled, and life in the presence of becoming remains in limbo. Wounds no longer heal, the dead never truly die, the world is in a state of perpetual stasis where death and life are meaningless, outdated terms.

1.14 (Village and Pillage) update-- Although a number of technical snags have been hit the update is most certainly still on the way.
Help Us Run Hollowworld-- Due to hitting a donation goal limited special titles specific titles have been made available. Make sure you have 1 HW donation credit in your inventory (Can be any rank) [x]
On April 5th, 2019, the Authors of the Arget Isles and associated IPs requested that both the physical island itself and the lore relating to Arget be removed from our setting. This is a request which was jointly granted by both the IG-Technical Dept. and the Lore Dept. On that date, the Lore Dept. considered the Arget Culture an official legacy language with special rules applying.
On July 24th, 2019, an official explanation for the destruction of the Arget Isles was approved and subsequently posted on the “Rumors” thread.
On August 20th, 2019, members of the Lore Dept. updated the official “Languages of the Eastern Continent” thread with:
Help Us Run Hollowworld: Community Donations Edition
Hello! You might have wondered here from the main page. Currently, we have reached our Community Donation Goals to get passed the August and September monthly costs to run this server. The following is the thread's introduction with details on some add-on costs and license costs for the forums.
We earned $345 that helped us pay for
-a forum license of xenforo (This helps us with bugs, and keeps us up to date with xenforo, etc)
-a Minesync add-on (This links your server rank to display as your forum rank)
-and funding for August and part of September for monthly server costs.
Thank you to all!
As you may know, it can be expensive to pay for and host this community we all call home. HollowWorld has been around for many years, and we would like it to be around for many...
Now that I have some additional testing and development resources at my disposal, here comes 1.14.(4). It won't be an overnight upgrade however it I am setting a target date of August 16th, 2019 as upgrade day. I'll release more specific and confirmed timing as the day approaches.
With this, we will be resetting both the Sorrows and the Nether. These maps have been overdue for a wipe for a bit but we've been pushing back until 1.14.4 was stable.
I do not expect issues like we had migrating from 1.12 > 1.13, and it will be thoroughly tested in a development environment before we make the changes to the main server.
The staff team and I have gotten a cool opportunity to try out a new system that we think will be helpful for communication -- The Support Ticket System.
Support Ticket System: Staff and Player Communication Made Easy (At least by a little)
Q: Why do we need this? Why did we put yet another system on our forums?
The support system ticket is a way to increase visibility for issues and form them into tasks for staff. Issues can be created and sent to departments as a whole, and then have status marked as the issue is resolved.
Player X has a question regarding the effects of a spell. That goes to the Lore Department.
After Department, you may be required to pick an additional category at the bottom of the ticket based on which part of Lore you mean to address.
