    MercenaryCrow joined the Moderation Team on September 17th, 2015. She joined EMC on October 14th, 2012."Was looking for basically exactly what EMC offers. Key point- no PvP. I tried EMC and never looked back. The Community is what really makes it what it is.I'm proud to be a part of that Community, giving back to regular players and being for newcomers what you all have been for me."

    What do you like to do IRL? "My hobbies include:» SCUBA » Paintball » Chanmaille» Web Design» Costuming » Learning to play the violin"
    Favorite animal and why: "Raccoon, because they are just like me. Known for mischief, intelligent, efficient scavengers/innovators, very clean. Not to mention cute!But I'm also fond of rabbits and bunnies. Most of my affection for this species is influenced by the book: ""The First Book of Lapism"" by Phil Geusz."
    Favorite Website: "FurAffinity.netI am a huge fan of anthropomorphic animal characters (I'm a furry). They just seem able to emote much better than human characters. And animals themselves are the same way.When you learn to speak an amimal's ""language,"" your bond grows immensely!"
    Favorite thing about EMC: "Community, hands down! So much love and support! Not to mention the love and support! Did I mention the love and support?
    I'm also indescribably amazed by the skill and dedication of Aikar and the Dev team, as well as the Build Team. Heck, the Empire Staff as a whole just seems to operate on a level of efficiency unparalleled even in well-paid positions!"
    Favorite color and why: "Green because it is the color of growth.
    Blue, because it is the color of clarity, pureness and cool temperatures (and the freedom of the wide, open sky)."
    Favorite Minecraft feature: The crafting system. Not only can you make everything, but many things you're gonna want have to be crafted from materials you, yourself are forced to gather. Crafting things through multiple levels instills a real sense of personality and ownership to your creations- especially if they're enchanted!
    Favorite Minecraft block: Redstone Block. It's reversible, functional, can be moved by pistons to create more convoluted machines (lol) and they represent my second favorite aspect of Minecraft- Redstone machines!
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do?: I love the implied backstory of the Endermen.They plague the player long before even learning of the End. They're so unique, you can't even look at them without drawing their ire- unless you wear a mask, which implies an alien sort of intelligence- smart, yet unlearned.They are ignored by hostile mobs and ignore the player. They just wander around doing nothing. They occasionally grab a block, but only certain types. This implies the player is born with a natural aptitude for mining/crafting (perhaps simply because the player is native to this world/universe). They also can't stand water, and completely freak out during rain.Once you reach the End, you realize it's their home realm. You see the bleakness of their place of origin and begin to sympathize with their journey to the Overworld and their fascination with building. It's almost as though they're simply trying to be more like you, but get scared when you focus on them because they see you kill everything else that moves.Or have they simply observed this of other adventurers? That's a story for another time ^_~"
    Favorite music: "Electro/DanceThe fewer lyrics the better.But I still enjoy pretty much everything else (except rap and reggae)."
    Pets?: "I've cats and dogs my whole life. Or have they been my family's? I don't have time to own/train/properly care for an animal of my own, but my dream pet is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
    I also love large and intelligent birds. Especially black ones... what are they called again?"
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be?: Taste. It's the one sense I could live without. I cant' imagine life without vision, being trained in the visual arts. I would wither without music, or at least a hearty beat. Touch is important to many activities at which I strive to excel. Smell has more to experience than taste, so I could at least smell what I'm eating.
    Favorite cookie: Double Chocolate Chunk ^~^
    Favorite quote: "I'm like a Steam engine- pressure drives me!"~MercenaryCrow
    If you could meet one person, who would it be?: Me from the future, so she could give me hope.
    Aditional random stuff you want to say: Donde fueras, has lo que vieras.

    What brought you to EMC? The Empire was actually the first server that I have ever played on Minecraft multiplayer. At the time I did not really understand how Minecraft multiplayer worked, but somehow someway EMC became my first server.
    What do you like to do IRL? In real life I love doing photography and taking a ton of pictures on how I see the world. I explore and do a ton of adventures with my camera in my hand exploring the whole world anywhere and everywhere.
    Favorite animal and why: My favorite animal would be Owls because I actually grew up with them in my backyard, and its a cool story that I will always remember.
    Favorite thing about EMC: The Community, the fact that a lot of us work together to create such an amazing server alone shows a lot about what EMC is all about.
    Favorite color and why: Blue would be my favorite color because of the sky, and the Dodgers baseball team! I'm a huge baseball fan, and the LA Dodgers are everything to me!
    Favorite Minecraft feature: The elytra is my favorite feature because who does not like to glide super far?
    Favorite Minecraft block: Smooth Sandstone block because it goes good with a lot of building, designs etc =)

    Our Community is active in many places.
