6/26/2022: Vote boss, birdhouse runs, more! - Ene - 06-27-2022

Hey Etherealians,

I've finally finished taking the MCAT and feeling a bit more relieved that it's done with - now for the month of agonizing wait until I get my results. This also means I have more time to work on the server again! Today's update comes with a new vote boss - Chronozon.

Chronozon can be spawned every 50 cumulative votes - after that, an announcement will be sent server-wide and Chronozon can be accessed using the command ::voteboss.

Chronozon is no cakewalk of an opponent however - it'll be up to the collaborative work of the server to take it down. It has a low max hit, but some interesting mechanics for everyone to take care of! Everyone who deals damage to Chronozon will be rewarded with loot. Note that deaths in the Chronozon arena are a safe death - meaning you won't lose any items.
Chronozon drops a variety of useful items, including a rare chance for some vote shop items, imbued god capes, as well as the new perk - Voting Rights. While activated, the perk gives a 20% increased chance to receive the bonus enhanced crystal key when voting.

This update also re-introduces birdhouses - along with a convenient teleport! To build a birdhouse, simply have a clockwork purchased from the Sawmill operator, the corresponding logs, a hammer, and a chisel to make a birdhouse. Simply use the crafted birdhouse into the empty birdhouse space in each location to set one up, and then fill it with 10 hops seeds or herb seeds!

Check on the birdhouse in around 50 minutes and you'll be rewarded with Hunter experience and some other rewards per birdhouse.

This update also introduces the functionality of 2 lunar spells - Plank make and Tan leather

Vote boss was an awesome idea! Definitely encourages voting and players to work together for the boss! All of the small QOL changes always help as well, and are very appreciated!
