LORE: Somehow, we ended up here. No one can remember how we got here. No one seems to know why. One day, you're living your life. The next, you're waking up surrounded by Dinosaurs, with a strange diamond in your arm. We seem to be connected to these strange floating obelisks too. One thing is known: We have to survive. The land is hostile, and the beasts are a thousand kinds of deadly. We either work together, or die alone. the ARK is unforgiving. The aim of the server is to present an ARK where the Dinos are terrifyingly dangerous. The players will have to work together to survive against these creatures, or ruthlessly eliminate the competition! We're going with the ARK's "Lore" which is sparse. Feel free to join us! Date: 07/06/<ERROR> Location: ARK #19322 The survivors of ARK #19322 are a diverse bunch. More are being transported daily. The struggles they face from the environment seem to keep them from killing each other at this time. One survivor, from a more advanced time, has erected a research center to study the ARK. We wonder if she'll find anything out? Another group of Survivors have been bartering colored dyes for animal hides and leather. They have a sort of shop on the western edge of the ARK. Still, many Survivors seem lost and work only to keep themselves fed, and in one piece. The wormholes and transportational dimensions that bring beings and items to the ARK have attracted the attention of the survivors. A cargo ship was sucked into the ARK a few days ago, and showered the coast with items the survivors quickly scavenged. High quality, or high tech items are rare on the ARK. Only one survivor has been fortunate enough to find metal panels from a crashed space vessel, and used them to create metal ships. She has used them to attempt taming the wild beasts of the sea. Her luck has been varied, and widely bad. Fishing is always about patience though, is it not? Special Events: -Strange things are sucked into the wormholes that bring people to the ARK. From Advanced Alien Spaceships, to simple wooded boats! Will you be lucky enough to find the wreckage of such a vessel? Will you be the only one?(Special Drops!) -Increased Resource Gather Day! Once a month the Resource Gather rates will be increased, allowing for a few hours of Stockpiling! -Roleplay events (Including the Special Drops). Meet up in the Southern Islets Pub to talk about surviving, trade goods and animals at the bazaar, or go on an adventure (Special Admin Lead RP events, as well as spontaneous RP). -More to come!

Server Rules: -Respect Roleplay and Roleplayers. This server is for them mainly! This is the most important rule. There will be no mercy for people who break it. -Global Chat is OOC. Please keep it civil. Local Chat is In-Character. -Respect fellow players, and do not grief them.(Excessive cage time, over-Raiding ect ect.) -No Raiding the same person twice within 24 hours. Give them a chance to build up again. -Do not interfere with Roleplay in any Out of Character (Non-Roleplay) way. (Strictly Enforced). -Try to keep bases visually appealing! (Not strictly enforced). -No building on valuable resource spawn -No building on 50/50 (Location on map, it causes gathering bugs). -Destroy any of your personally owned unused Buildings and Rafts. If you don't we might have to wipe the server for clutter. -No PvP at Southern Islets Point Village. -No Raiding RP Buildings RESOURCE SPAWNS: The Volcano, Metal node spawns, Obsidian node spawns, cave entrances, caves, or ANY place an uncommon resource spawns. Breakdown of What Griefing is, and what PvP is allowed. Greifing is trolling. If you kill new players, people who are RPing, or repeatedly kill the same player over and over. That is griefing. If you Raid the same person twice within 24 hours, that is griefing. If you lock someone in a cage for more than an hour or two, that is griefing. PvP is allowed at any NON-RP Structure. What is an RP Structure? Any structure built up and decorated with minimal or NO Defenses. Usually owned by the Red Raptor Tribe. These buildings are there for Roleplay. They are used for events, and social gatherings. Raiding those establishments is NOT Allowed. PvP (Fighting players) is, only if those players are Out of Character. PvP is allowed in all zones except for the Southern Islets Point Village located around 80/40 in the South. Anyone caught breaking these rules will be thrown in a cell, and given a warning the first time. Anyone building in a restricted area will have their base removed (Stuff saved), and asked to relocate the first time. Continued breaking of the rules will result in a full base and Dino wipe of the offending player/Tribe and possible server ban.
