Kenorland: Race away
Race Away is back for another round, get these blocky legs going!
As always, the goal is to reach the highest X coordinate possible, following the East cardinal direction. This new world will be a bigger challenge to navigate; slow and steady might be the key to victory!
A starting pack of items is provided at the spawn point, make sure to collect it before going. Due to the rare nature of any food items, your health is set to slowly regenerate.
The top 30 runners will get Merit Points based on their best position, in decreasing order. That is, the top runner will get 30, the second place 29, third place 28, and so on.
For June, enjoy the time on the beach, with rattling Bone Towers and Mr. Sun himself defending their domain in the Hunter's Lodge!
All Horsemen Quests have also been updated. See the Horseman Points Guide for an indepth look at the quests, points, and how to cash them in!
The tasks for the guilds have been rotated in Laurasia, Rodinia and Superia. Multiple players are still in the running for the Grand Master title of each guild; keep going if you want a chance at claming one! The first opportunity for these will be next month, if people keep going at the current pace. More details will be shared before the end of the month. Good luck to everyone!
If you need details on any of these, the wiki page about the Monthly Challenges is updated as soon as each of these is ready at the beginning of the month!
To better help with supporting the community, both Kimonellos and Rebbica007 have been promoted to op status. Congrats to you two, and thanks for helping!
Due to extended inactivity, Kagato has been returned to trusted status. I appreciate the help you gave while you were available!
Upcoming science updates
With Minecraft 1.17 getting close, it's once again time to prepare an update and rebalance things as needed.
Most notably, the Lost Woods and the Horsemen Areas will be updated so that you will need to complete each one before being allowed to move on to the next. Some existing items will also be adjusted, while keep inventory will be applied to more boss rooms.
This will take place starting next Monday, on 7 June, leaving you a full Events Night to complete any work you might already have in process. I recommend that you read the full forum post with the details on how this will work.
