Cloud World: Skeeve’s Narnia (Opened July 1, 2020)

Cloud World: Skeeve’s Narnia
At long last the time has come for me to open a new server! This will be my 11th Cloud World and while Skeeves-Gigantic-Empire (SGE) remains open, all my other worlds have long ago gone out of credit.

This new world will be called Skeeve’s Narnia with a target Grand Opening on July 1st, 2020. (Just over 2 months from now). It will be heavily themed to C.S. Lewis’ Books, The Chronicles of Narnia. The rules will specify building guidelines, naming conventions, and possible Role-playing of the characters from the books.
It will be a Custom World with the following settings:
(Except PvP will be ON, not disabled as it shows below)

Until it opens, this thread will be used to share some ideas for the server and establish rules.
I will most likely make this a “Searchable” world, so that random noobs will not pour in. Familiarity with the Chronicles of Narnia is strongly recommended.

Below are some starting ideas:

  • Spawn design to look like the Wardrobe which first brought the 4 Pevensie Children to Narnia.
  • The “Large Oceans” setting will make for long sailing trips which should mimic “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”. Islands could be created to match the theme of that storyline.
  • Underground areas could be designed to look like the realm of the Emerald Witch from “The Silver Chair”
  • The Climate setting is “Normal” so that we can have both Winter Regions and Deserts. The deserts can represent the kingdom of Calormen from “The Horse and His Boy”
  • The setting “More Trees” will allow for vast forests – perhaps representing the Woods between the Worlds from “The Magician’s Nephew”
  • We could build the Stone Table that Aslan was sacrificed on, and later create “Aslan’s How” from “Prince Caspian”.
  • Don’t forget to name all of your Donkey’s “Puzzle” and your Unicorns “Jewel” from “The Last Battle”!!
  • Recommend naming your Blockheads after characters from the books.
  • Building rules would apply so that the book’s themes are followed.
  • Since Narnia was a violent place at times, with many wars and times of strife, Mobs are set to “Hard” and you will need to clear the “wilds” of Narnia and make them subject to the Kingdom.
  • For the same reason, I will probably make it PvP – and we will use that to address griefers a little differently than just simply banning them: My proposal is to have us Narnians defend the land from griefers! Death Drops are set to “all items” for that reason…
  • Protection signs will be very rare, and only used to protect the Spawn area, Gem Trees, and maybe a few key structures.

All Ideas and Suggestions are Welcome! I can’t entertain them all but I will listen to every one of them.

Maybe somewhere on the server you have a series of pools and if you swim down deep, you come to a small representation of your other worlds. :smiley:

Another feature might be the White Queen’s castle with statues of creatures turned to stone.

I’m really looking forward to this. These are some of my favorite books of all time.

Is there a reason you chose to open the server on the 1st of July?

Awesome suggestion Jem!
That would be really cool.

Oh and the reason for July 1st is because I am currently active on another server now and want to continue there for the time being.
Also I would like to have a little buffer of time to create the world and get some preliminary structure to it.

@Skeeve
I shall not the answer to give away, allowing others to thus speculate…

Love this idea! I’m super excited for this server to come out. My horse (I guess a brown donkey shall suffice) Breehy-hinny-brinny-hoohy-hah shall dominate the lands of Narnia, alongside myself, of course🐴

If I’m not confusing it with some other C.S.,

Is it

Clive Staples?

Can’t wait for the server, though! I am curious to see how the locations from The Horse and His Boy will turn out. I’d say that book or The Voyage of the Dawn Treader are my favorite.

Puddleglum best character, tho.

You can still use your normal IGN, I’m just going to ask people to name their individual Blockheads after the characters of their choice.

It’s not totally mandatory though, just for fun.

And @Alexandra_Inglorien — Yes correct!

Not the type of person to read books, so I don’t think this world is for me. :confused:

@Lord-Hyness You can listen to the audiobooks The Chronicles of Narnia playlist

Have you considered making anti-spawn and its surrounding area the Western Wild? You could build the garden atop a cliff there and a great apple tree in the center of it.

Further, I’d love to offer my Companion to Narnia book for location descriptions to help design the world.

I’ve never read Narnia, will that be a problem?

Another excellent suggestion, the Western Wild!
Love it. And I will have to try to get my hands on that Companion to Narnia book!

@Dom Not a problem, but it will be more enjoyable if you do. Seeing the movies helps, but they only made 3. There are 4 more books after that.

Okie Dokie. I’ve been looking for some books to read. Maybe I will try these ones
