I don't understand what you mean by 'code release'?

The current release is 1.16.3 for Java.

The current release is 1.16.3 for Java.

Ah, this is 1.12.2. Fairly old-school, but there's nothing the extra versions really add that I want.

The 1.15 version was huge. The villagers completely change how the game can be played.

It's been one week since launch and Dwarves! is going strong.

The Outpost has grown from a few tents to a nice little settlement. A mine has been established, apothecaries have been building their gardens, the smiths have now set up a proper smithy and the first Outpost newspaper - The Servant - has been released. Our first Tribute is due in a week and I am very excited to see what the future brings.

I'm continually working on extras for our Professions and Skills in the background and focused on growing Dwarves! over the coming weeks and months. Join our Discord from the main post, read through the necessary channels to become a Dwarf and get whitelisted!

The first Tribute has gone successfully, with a few minor changes needed. The Dwarves are on the way to advancing their Outpost rank, affording them more permissions, privileges and fame!

The Grol have been killed in sufficient numbers to stop them increasing their hold on the island. This is an ongoing thing, so this could all change in two weeks!

A number of Dwarves have died in the past week, though the Outpost is still going strong. A bank has been made with plans to introduce a currency, a Guild of Smiths has been established allowing metalwork to be created in a much more streamlined fashion. The Public Servant continues to keep the Outpost updated with all the recent news and changes, with its own spin on things.

In general, the server is currently going strong. The Discord is growing tremendously, with new Dwarves joining in every day. We have a solid core of players, but the more the merrier!

Scandal hits the Outpost!

Veteran writer Ortho Berukahs, lead editor of The Public Servant, makes claims against apothecary Ilzar Goldspit. After these claims are made public, a number of Dwarves rush to defend Ilzar's honour, both in-person and via more publications.

Eventually, over threats and fears for his own life, Ortho has fled back to Bormar. Will the lack of a reputable newsletter now effect the Outpost? Only time will tell.

In other news, expeditions have been led against the Grol in the Red Hills - our valiant Dwarves taking many lives in their encampments.

Join Dwarves! today!

A large, illegal build is uncovered on the very edge of the Outpost border. It has since been taken down, but this was a close call for the Outpost. Such a construction would have meant a hefty increase on their next Tribute.

Voting has begun for potential leaders of the Outpost. A single Leader, with a rank yet to be determined, supported by a Lower Chamber of 3 capable Dwarves. Campaigning is happening all of this week and we shall find out who will be the first ruler of our Outpost soon!

Voting for our first leader ends today, with the winner being announced shortly.

The Outpost is slowly closing in on achieving Rank 2, giving more permissions, privileges and fame!

New Dwarves are constantly arriving at the Outpost, join today!

The first leader of the Outpost has been announced!

Kadol Ubbul, jeweller, has been voted by the population of the Outpost to become its first Leader. He will be supported by the Lower Chamber; comprised of three Dwarves yet to be chosen.

The first major 'expansion' of the Dwarves! world is almost complete!

The Flora update will bring in over 300 types of new plants, fungus, woods, saps and many, many more. Over time, these plants will be added into the Apothecary potion making re-work and also brought over to the Brewery plugin so you can make all sorts of new alcohol!

The Flora Expansion has now been done and Apothecaries can access all of these plants, by foraging in different biomes and other conditions.

Many new Dwarves have arrived at the Outpost in recent days, and efforts are underway to establish a Guild system.

Huge storms and heavy rains have battered the island and the surrounding oceans for weeks now. Recently, the swamp has been flooded with boggy water, pushing the local ecosystem into overdrive.

What started as a few Swamphoppers appearing in the Outpost, ended up being a titanic battle against a gigantic Panacea Leech and 3 Bog-King Toads that had gorged themselves on the wildlife.

Kadol Ubbul has stepped down from leadership, allowing Ogrona Frontik to temporarily take leadership. An election will be held shortly to finalise this!

The Black Quiver disease has struck the Outpost. The current occupants believe a recipe for a cure must lie somewhere on the island, as the previous occupants might have had experiences with the disease.

The disease is fatal and after the 8th day death will occur. Time is ticking for our Dwarves, will they find the cure in time?
Title: Re: Dwarves! - A Minecraft Roleplaying Server
Post by: DwarvesRoleplay on January 27, 2021, 11:53:37 AM
A old apothecarial recipe has been unearthed on the island and our Wordsmiths have put their heads together to decipher it.

After delving into a magma-filled cavern, battling through magma slimes and slaying a gigantic, trapped magma troll, our brave Dwarves secured the last of the believed ingredients to the cure.

With 2 days before the disease becomes lethal, will our Brewers be able to create the cure in time?

A potent cure was found for the disease, with a day to spare before the first deaths happened. Brewed by Lokro Surja, it has saved the Outpost from a devastating blow!

More Dwarves join every day and with more updates to the skill and profession system coming every week, along with plans to update to 1.16, there's no better time to join Dwarves!

Marshall Khestor has now become the Overseer of Zietal Mar!

In other news, the Brewery plugin will be getting a major upgrade soon, with over 800 single-ingredient recipes and 50 types of 'basic' alcohol.

A broken Dwarven ship - The Cuckoo - has foundered off the coastline. The Grol have swarmed around it, yet our brave Dwarves have ventured aboard to try and uncover its secrets!
Title: Re: Dwarves! - A Minecraft Roleplaying Server
Post by: DwarvesRoleplay on February 28, 2021, 01:02:04 PM
The secrets of The Cuckoo have been unlocked and now our Dwarves work to rebuild the ship for their own purposes!
Title: Re: Dwarves! - A Minecraft Roleplaying Server
Post by: DwarvesRoleplay on March 08, 2021, 08:23:59 AM
The Cuckoo has been salvaged and the ship is being rebuilt for our own use.

Fort Thidir has started proper construction, soon we will have a gorgeous mountain defence to keep us safe!

A lot of new Dwarves have joined in the past two weeks and Dwarves! is growing stronger every day!

Our first Megaflora has been discovered and rendered inert.

The Amanita Colossi had been converting all types of wildlife into fungal-based mobs, including Bulls and Trolls. Threatening to overrun the Outpost, and infect our Dwarves with bursts of spores, they headed into the forest to track down the mighty mushroom and destroy it.

Over 50 alcohol recipes have been introduced for the Brewery plugin! Cider, tequila, ales, vodka, brandy, rum and many more await those dedicated Brewers to figure out the correct recipes!

A new batch of tools will be released shortly. Pickaxes, Prospectors and Excavators will be three grades of pickaxe, made from ingots, plates and slabs.
