Kingdoms is a framework for players to form groups on the server. Different kingdoms should represent different identities of players within the community.
Kingdoms can participate and cooperate in various aspects of the LC experience. Examples are:
- Teams in minigames
- Collecting experience for skills. Kingdoms have the option to select a bonus skill which will grant their members an XP boost.
- Building a base with your kingdom
- Trade and have war with other kingdoms (WIP)
Minigames are a method to both relax and to meet new people. Take a short break from playing survival to do something completely different with friends or new acquaintances.
Our games come in a large variety of different types. We have competitive games aimed more at PvP, such as Skywars and Murder Mystery. We also have more casual games such as Discofall or Connect 4, which have more variety in gameplay.
The competitive minigames offer a leaderboards system, which can be tied to players or kingdoms. Reaching first place in these leaderboards will grant you specific bonuses. Some casual games can also offer rewards.
Skywars (tied to player leaderboard)
Skywars is a quickpaced minigame where 4-16 players fight against each other in a sky world. Each player starts on their own floating island, where they have to make their way across the void to the other islands. Most islands have chests on them with loot that you can use to gear up. The last player standing wins the game! Use your currency to unlock kits, so that you can gain a head start in this minigame!
Murder Mystery (tied to player leaderboard)
Murder Mystery is a competitive role playing minigame. One player becomes the murderer, the others are innocent. The murderer has to kill all innocents, while the innocents try to survive until the end! One innocent player is the detective, who can see the cause of death for dead players. Innocents can end the game by finding all the diamond ores hidden on the map, and bringing them to the furnace to create a diamond block. If this block gets offered, the innocents win the game!
Paintball (tied to kingdom leaderboard)
Paintball is a fastpaced shooter minigame, where kingdoms can battle against each other to gain control over the minigun! The kingdom that has the highest score on the leaderboards will be able to use /minigun to get a gun that shoots rapid fire arrows!

We have added a system that adds diminishing returns to the xp values earned in a single day. This is done in order to prevent players from excessively grinding and getting too far ahead from the more casual players. The diminishing returns are applied on all skills equally, and will be reset once every 24 hours.
How it works:
The more experience you earn on a single day, the less xp you will get from each activity. The reduction is capped at 50%, meaning you will never earn less than 50% of the default xp value. We aim to have the reduction rates set so that you will start noticing a small decrease after ~3 hours of non-stop grinding, and you should reach the cap after ~8 hours of non-stop grinding. Please help us adjust the values if you notice they are incorrect.
The build mechanics are a new set of tools that will allow you to build more easily in survival mode. They are connected to the building skill.
The build tools are as follows: pencil, blueprint, chisel. A pencil can be made by crafting a plank with a (char)coal above it. A blueprint can be made by crafting blue dye with paper. A chisel can be made by crafting a stick with a flint above it.
The pencil and blueprint are used to make selections, which can be filled with blocks or be cleared out with tools. The chisel allows you to change the rotation of blocks such as stairs, logs, or glazed terracotta.
To use the pencil:
