I have been on this fine server for a year now. I have had some ups and downs and some new ideas. Before everyone just asks a question, please read my story.Once upon a time, there was a minecraft player named brickstrike. He played all day on single player or on 5 slot servers. But, one day he decided to join a Survival Multiplayer Server with no PVP because he was a noob. On 3/29/12 he joined Empire Minecraft at like 8 pm. He then started a mini shop on his res because at that time shops were in style. He kept building and building till April Fool's Day. When all the dragons came for like 3 days maybe. Mobs were every where but it was awesome. He logged in 5 times a week until summer came. There was a trip that lasted for 25 days. Because I thought well it could be a new start when I get back, I didn't ask for my res to be saved. I then didn't login until October where I still had my basic supplies, which was helpful. In time I bought diamond supporter and got four reses. I am quite active now and hope to be for another year. Sorry everyone for a long post but now you get to Ask Me Anything [within reason] right after I thank a few people.I would like to thank everyone for being my friend and helping me through this year, it has given me a few more lessons in life that I need. I would like to thank Faithcaster, aCookiegod, Todd_Vinton, Randomzh, nick_godoy, southpark___, heyaroo, Jcplugs, Aikar, ICC, Maxarias, and all of EMC staff for being my friend.
