    Hey Everyone!
    I am pleased to announce my next event on Applecraft! A giant maze! Now I know what a lot of you guys are immediately thinking, “ANOTHER F!@#ING MAZE!? WHY!? AND IT HAS PARKOUR!?!?! YOU’RE HORRIBLE MELON”. I wouldn’t blame you for that reaction BUT my team and I have put a lot of effort into this monstrosity. There is survival, parkour, maze navigation/mapping, combat (not pvp) and puzzle solving involved. The maze has multiple layers with tunnels and vine routes scattered throughout with a centre area for getting resources for your maze travels.
    But before I get into the rest I would like to give a huge thank you to those who helped make this a reality because I would not have made this without their assistance. So thank you to Pure_Purple_, Flame_Star1, Pixelus, Lord_Of_Cipher and Mistyfirefly.

    Now, how does this work? This maze event will be a team event. Each team will consist of 4-8 players (no less and no more) and I would suggest forming them wisely as having a wide range of skills will be VERY helpful. Each team will have their own separate maze and will start the event at a time decided by them. The fastest team to complete the maze and exit AS A TEAM will win first prize! Please take note that I said fastest, NOT first. There are also second and third prizes as well as participation prizes. To complete the maze you'll need 50% of your team, rounded up, at the exit. To start the maze will be the same requiring 50% of your team. When you start the maze you will enter into a survival area within the maze and then you must explore, find the secrets within and complete the challenges to exit.

    Signing Up
    Times available for teams to pick from are listed below. I am flexible so if none of those times work for your team please message me and we can work something out:

    Other details
    I don’t really want to give much away but some crucial details! I have completed this maze myself, so yes it is possible. Yes it took me a long time. If you die it takes 5 minutes ish to re enter the maze. You have to be on the server in the maze world for those 5 minutes ish to tick by (you’ll see why). If you get stuck, you will have to re enter the maze just as if you had died so be careful, ensure wherever you’re going is not a one way dead end. Map, it, out… I would suggest finding a good minimap mod because I have no way of preventing people from using them so you all may as well use them because they will be very useful.

    Penalties
    ANY questions regarding this event asked to those who helped create it other than myself will incur your team a 2 hour time penalty so PLEASE direct them to my discord MelonMarauda#4865. Keep this thread to applications only, thank you.
    Any member of a team found cheating in any way will get the ENTIRE team disqualified and the entire team will NOT get any rewards for even participating. Another reason to choose your team wisely.
    Any member of any team found sharing information about the event to other teams or anyone not within their team will have their entire team disqualified again preventing that team from getting any rewards. Sharing information could be as simple as giving hints about any details, so choose your words wisely. Once the first 3 teams are identified teams are free to talk about the maze without consequences.

    Rewards
    1st, 2nd and 3rd place will receive special rewards and every other team that finishes will get the participation reward. Details on these rewards will remain hidden until the teams claim them.
    There are also 3 other rewards up for grabs for the fastest team to find Megan and Greg, the missing beet and Shaun. If you find one of these take a picture with them and send it to my discord to mark how long it took your team to find.

    Good luck maze runners. You’ll need it.

    Ooooh and one other thing for all you maze/parkour haters, I am in the mood for making things, so if you have any good ideas for events message me about them. I am however not a fan of recreating someone elses minigame. So don't tell me to make bedwars. Thanks

  4. HALLOWEEN BUILD COMPETITION RESULTS!

    With the help of special guest judge MelonMarauda, I'm excited to announce the results of the 2020 Halloween Build Competition!

    Choosing winners was exceptionally difficult as after a first review I ended up with a "short list" of 20 plots. The builds were all so different! There was parkour, mazes, quests, and a lot of dragons! Some builders went super-detailed with armor stands and storyline, while others worked on a larger scale.

    If you submitted a build and didn't get selected, just know that there's a very good chance you were on my long "short list". The quality of the builds was exceptional.

    FIRST PLACE:
    Lord_of_Cipher, Aliicc, buddhaboi ($100 PayPal and Architect Rank)

    SECOND PLACE:
    Brokolii ($50 PayPal)

    THIRD PLACE:
    LuckyMinecraft1 ($25 Store Voucher)

    HONOURABLE MENTIONS:
    wentaxe, CoconutChunks, Elementiger_1985, Amir_Bor, Eeevvh ($10 Store Voucher)

    Congratulations to the winners, and thank you very much to everyone who entered! I will be in touch shortly regarding prizes.
  5. One late fall night, you are traveling a few towns over to go and visit some relatives when your horses are spooked by something in the woods. They go wild trying to run away from whatever is creeping in the trees, and before you can try to calm them down your carriage tips over and you are flung from it, hitting the ground with a thud.

    When you awake you find yourself in the middle of a small village. The villagers welcome you, inviting you to join in their festivities. It’s All Hallows Eve after all! You decided to stay for a bit while they offer to repair your wagon but soon things take a dark turn.

    Children are getting violently ill everywhere and the villagers start to turn against you. “This is all your fault!” They point their fingers and demand you fix whatever curse you put upon their children or else it is your head. You plead your innocence but they refuse to listen as more kids become sick.

    “I’ll prove it to you!” You finally exclaim to the angry mob. “I’ll go out and find whoever is responsible and I will cure your children of this sickness!”
    And so your journey begins, can you figure out what exactly is going on in this village? Can you find out who is the true culprit and save these poor children?


    Welcome to Applecraft’s Halloween 2020 Adventure Map!
    Once you do /halloween (from any world) You will be spawned into where our story begins right by the wagon. Go forward through the path towards the town and start your journey by interacting with the NPCs. Make sure you click all the NPCs! If you skip an NPC, you might miss some important clues to help you figure out who the true culprit is! Some NPCs give out valuable information, others give out kits that might help you! remember to set plenty of homes! You will die a lot.

    -Do NOT cheat or share the ending! This is about everyone having fun and enjoying the adventure!
    -The first 3 players to finish the map gets a special prize, but everyone who participates will get a generic prize.
    -Once you have reached the end of the map, turn in all the items (7 relics) you’ve collected to earn your prize! PM tunny#7280 on discord! I repeat that is: tunny#7280 on DISCORD!

    I Would also like to give a huge thanks to Koree, Jess, Eeevvh, Toby Kers. Brok, Misty, SJstoby, SJCreeper, Lupito, Tom, And all the other staff who have been amazing throughout this whole process of building!

    Have fun! A mixed group of staff and some players came together to make this for you all, so remember
    to have fun and enjoy your time playing! :)
