It's a long story...
In summer of '13 I was introduced to this weird block game called Total Miner Forge. Being the long time gamer that I am and a fan of Legos, I was quickly entralled with this new style of game. After half a dozen or so maps, I had an idea. I want to build a midieval kingdom! And so I founded 'Castlevania'. A map Dig Deep map built in the spirit of all that makes monsters and hero's great. It has under gone many changes and has had it's share of trials. I have trusted people in the past and regretted it. So I learned how to zone. As time went on and the kingdom expanded, I grew wise in the ways of hosting. That's about the time I reset the economy to fuel the kingdom through the efforts of remote citizens. As well as my wife and I always toiling away in the background to ensure a truly unique and fufilling experience. Then 2.0 hit... Blueprint bugs locked out most of the top end gear, so I declared Castlevania broken. But by this time I had already invested over 350 hours into this map, so I held onto it, hoping one day for it to be restored. One day happened! Oh glorious day to once again take the throne and walk the streets filled with eager players. I have always provided assistance to new visitors to the realm and now have a ranking system for easier identification between players. And incentive to gain permissions and access to a better experience. But this world ain't for the timid. I have pet spiders for getting started, but they bite. I have lava ducts all over town for 'night light', but it can kill in a heartbeat if one falls in. Spikes are common. And I now have been scripting like a mad man. Mana, hunger, thirst, and sanity status effects, all custom built by me, are in effect. It has been a goal to determine what can and can't be scripted in DD. There are a lot of admin special features and items, for those who prove themselves. There is employment created with skilling in mind, and residences galore. And the shops are All economized and itemized, so one will need to shop around. All in all, this map is for people, like me, that love to dig deeper, and see what can be done.
So stop on by 'Castlevania', and remember the motto of the land is... Try not to die!
