I have filled up a double chest, containing everything from a wooden sword to diamonds and enchanted items. These will be hidden around my residences in 54 free buy chests, for all of you to find. I am currently thinking of starting around 7 PM Pacific Standard Time, but if that sounds like a bad time let me know, I am sort of flexible that day. Below is a picture of all the items you could win in the Scavenger Hunt. MY EMC STORY: First, let me give you a little history of my Minecraft career before EMC. I had spent over a year just playing Singleplayer, and then my friend Enzler and I joined a server called McPluto, which in hindsight was really poorly run. We played on that for a while until the server eventually died and I got frustrated and left. I think after this Minecraft lost interest for me, and it wasn't until one day on Facebook that this changed. Among the annoying sidebar adds on Facebook I noticed an Empire Minecraft add, and I figured that if a server was important enough to have a Facebook add it must be awesome.That just so happened to be exactly correct, and by the time I finished the tutorial and chose smp7 I was extremely excited. I got Enzler to join that same day (its his 1 year birthday as well, but he's perma-grounded by his parents, so he won't get to celebrate ) and claimed my first residence, 14860. Immediately, I built a little house, and started work on a castle wall around the perimeter, both of which still stand today. Overtime, I have kept adding things to that residence, including a smallish sky shop which I just recently tore down. I used the Minecraft account of a friend who quit Minecraft as an alt and got another res, which I worked on for a while. During this whole time, despite it containing many famous EMC historical events, such as the mass exodus and the Copherfield incident, I was completely unaware of anything occuring outside my little area. It wasn't until at least halfway through that first year that I started making friends and being social. Getting hired at the TREES Library (R.I.P.) helped me make my first friends, Dandandondo and Kadboy, and through their Tekkit server I met Chris_flo, the owner of TREES. (TREES is an smp7 organization fyi). After deciding I liked the TREES group, I just hung out around them all until I became friends with everyone. I now have tons of friends, and it has made Minecraft so much fun. I will list everyone later on.Last December, I purchased a Gold supportership and claimed a residence next to mine, 14859. Inspired by the 2012 movie Avengers, I began the largest project I have ever attempted, a replica of STARK Tower. It took me two months to build the structure itself, and at the point this is being written I still have several floors left to interior decorate. Using this tower (the first picture) as a base, I started the Avengers, which ended up being a total of 10 people, each of whom got half a floor in STARK Tower. Also around December, I started going on the forums, and have since become a well-known member. The forums have been great, and I now find myself on them far more than Facebook.Anyways, in conclusion, this has been a great journey, and I could not imagine not-playing EMC. I would like to thank all the staff, present and past, who have helped start this server, and turn it into the amazing place it is today.I would also like to thank all my great friends, and if I forget somebody, which I likely, I apologize in advance. So in no particular order, thank you to these people:EnzlerAlyattaylaDeathconnDandandondoKadboyCube151Chris_flocutejuliewPandaseatramenSonicol1Pab10ssstrngmnmlameidlThe_Shadow_007creepincreepers7Ninjastorm5201 (R.I.P.)The_Legend4Drew_1999All the great people I've met and got to have discussions with on the forums So once again, thank you to all who have made this a great community, its been a great year.
