    Dogs of the State: Phoenix Reborn is a Direwolf20 1.7 server.
    We are a greylist server. Once you have fully read and understand this post you may join us on the server at minecraft.dogsofthestate.com.
    Our players join us from around the world so at any given time there will be a friendly face to greet you when you log in.

    [​IMG]

    Dogs of the State is a gaming community that has been playing games together for over 5 years now. We've also been running a Minecraft server since Multiplayer went live, and have gone through several different town/server configurations. If you are mature, seeking a tight-knit community, and wanting to be part of fun and massive builds while helping each-other survive, "Dogs of the State" is the place for you. We have instituted an age restriction of 18+. We are only looking for the best and most friendly players, who can also communicate well and are looking for a community to spread their wings in.

    [​IMG]

    We enjoy having the large subset of mods available with DW20 packs. Historically, we have tried to up the difficulty on packs through config changes and other such controls. This iteration we are avoiding adjustments of that sort opting for a more "Utopian" type build. We also enjoy a good role play during out builds. Currently, we have separated into factions. There will be little to no actual PVP but role play conflicts will play out in forum posts and some pranks (within reason) may be tolerated. Griefing will not.

    [​IMG]
    Several iterations of the server have existed prior to this one, as a fluke, a number of active duty military and veterans chose to make Dogs of the State their home. Having intimate knowledge of this life and embracing that connection and seeing value of these members in the community, Incomitatum, the DotS owner, decided to make it a selling point. To this day that tradition continues. We are proud to have a significant number of military individuals (both American and foreign) as members of our community.

    Thank you, for your service and dedication to your country.

        • Can’t be stressed enough we have to be able to communicate with you and be sure you can and will read and follow periodic communications.
      • Be, Mature
        • We are an 18+ server because a good number of us have jobs, spouses, kids and need a place to enjoy playing the game with other ADULTS. We expect our players to act like adults at all times.

        • Some shorthand is okay such as AFK or BRB just please try to type for real.
        • If you can’t be bothered to type “okay” or even “ok” instead of “kk” you are pushing it and maybe you should find a different server.
      • Any resources in your house or pockets are yours, otherwise we are a commune and share our goods.
        • Public chests are public, take what you need and give back to the community when you can.
        • Thieves and leeches will be banned.
        • If you’re not sure if it’s public property leave it alone until you can ask someone who knows.

    **STARTING AGAIN**

    I still can’t believe he left us. That rotting fool left us when we needed him most. How were we supposed to know that Asmodeus had imbued the ship with dark magic during his attack? The short answer is we couldn’t. We were counting on the Necrotech to keep us apprised of those sorts of things. The damned fool left us in our time of need. When we fired up the fusion reactor to recharge the ship it triggered something in Asmodeus’ magic. We were unprepared without Phantagor.

    It was like some invisible hand reached out from the ship and began to systematically rip our settlements from existence. Magic had returned to this world and with a vengeance. I enlisted the help of Flight_Freq to adapt his force field technology used during our run in with the Count to be compatible with the archaic energy production we had managed to cobble together on this god forsaken world. It was enough to keep our people safe but we knew it wasn’t going to hold indefinitely.

    Chief Warlock Dark_Tundra having felt magic return to the world was able to tap into the powers of the Otherwhere and began a ritual. All we could do is wait and hope the shields would hold long enough for Dark to relocate the all the refugees to a safer place. As the last of the refugees blinked from existence I turned to Dark to signal it was time for us to join them an invisible fist slammed into the shields and they began to falter. The air was sucked from my lungs instantly. This was it… I’m coming for you Necromancer… you son of a bitch.

    When the darkness faded I was standing in a beautiful garden. My self-sacrifice to save my people must have bought my ticket into paradise. I turn around to take in the beauty only to behold a horrid site. The haymaker I lay on him nearly rips that necrotic skull from his body. To my left I think I hear a chuckle coming from the Warlock. Wordlessly, Phantagor picks himself off the ground and walks through an opening in the hedges. I look toward Dark and we exchange a knowing glance. We had made it out alive; the Necrotech was back among us, in an all too familiar situation. All our technology lost, our magic depleted, I guess it was time to start again. This time it’s different, this time I will be watching that stinking collection of bones and skin closely.

    I come from a military town. My father grew up here eventually joined the Army and did a few years in Germany in the 70's returned home and stayed as a civilain worker at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS). Thats my experience with the military, beyond that though I'm very interested in science and history. I like to incorporate those interests into my builds. I also have interest in Sci-Fi. (stargate, star trek (voyager all the way), etc) . The last (and only other) server I played on was also 18+ and I really enjoyed it but after classes started back up I got swamped with college and life so by the time i try to reconnect with those guy they had move on.

    "All that lit up the room were the floating, dark coloured candles. Any other humand being would have felt like the walls closing in on you, a strange breeze and feeling in the air, that let your skin crackle with bursts of sensation, leaving only an oily, disgusting sense when they passed. Awakened Ones could here the skulls singing litanies of long forgotten stories while others just murmured gibberish lessons of life. Staying for too long at the room would turn you crazy, mad, at least would make you feel sick to the degree that you should vomit. But then again, secrets and power lies in the thick air...something...something stirs behind. Marvellous power fills the whole room and one can be sure, someone larger than life was sitting there, starring at the old tomes, books and papyrii.

    "I watched creation start to crawl..."

    Observering from the back of the old, crackling bones that had the stench of the graveyard on them, you could see that the books contained mysterious of the nine hells, demons and worse. Yet, with the dreaded darkness all around you, you can feel that it is not about the evil within, it is actually like the old Necromancer is frantically searching for a solution.

    "Is there any chance in Hell?"

    Flipping over dusted pages, littered with blood, ink and other less suitable substances, the Old One tries to find a way. He is older than time itself...or at least, he forgot when he himself started to crawl. Creatures of the Dark refer to him as the Dark One. Pariah amongst the Gods. While the Lightbringer, Micphaistos and other gods where long forgotten, the Dark One still draws powers from his followers. Still, this is far than enough to stop the ruinious powers draining the fabric of reality, tearing wholes into this very dimension.

    "If rain is what you want, then take your seats, enjoy the fall"

    He knows who is coming. He knows what is behind all this. And Asmodeus is not coming alone. He wishes he could prepare more, but his people dont listen to him anymore. All he can do is to try to protect them. The first demons are already spilled upon the overworld, attracted by the shiny machinations of the technicians. Attracted by the dark wishes of the magicicians. The time is short and dire...they are coming...they are here...they are coming...they are here...

    -Have you READ everything before this? Well this will be at the end, but I believe I read the entire original post. I didn't read through all the previous applications though.

    -Where are you from? Washington State.

    -How old are you? I was born 23.5 years ago*

    -What gender do you wish to be know by? I'm male.

    -What is your Minecraft Username? Qyv

    -What other games do you play on a semi-regular basis? I mostly play minecraft. I did just buy skyrim for pc but it isn't quite the same as the xbox version.

    -What role do you enjoy taking the most in Minecraft? I really enjoy mining, I find it relaxing to dig through several hundred stacks of stone by hand.

    -Which mod do you know best (from the ones we have installed)? I'd say I'm best with the basics - thermal expansion and tinkerer's construct. I'd love to learn more about Ender IO and I do like computer craft, although I find it usually isn't worth the time to set up the Lua.

    -If you are added, how often do you intend to be on? I usually play minecraft close to everyday, I do have a vanilla 1.8 server I play on frequently, but it hasn't been as active so I will be more active here for a good while I think.

    -What is your schedule like, what hours do you most often play? Evenings, and weekends. I'm usually home by 6pm weekdays and weekends I'm up at about 5am (all times pacific daylight).

    -Why do you think you will be a good fit for the Dogs of the State? I popped on the server and talked a bit before coming here. I love the idea of the impossible objects for the ender chest colors. I'm a friendly player that likes to help out where I can.

    *You clawed out from nothing and I sent you back
    Fought to the metal, and law's what you lacked*


    Thunderstrikes are rolling through the most parts of the land. The sky grows darker and darker and even the slightest dabbler in magic knows something is up. Something dark is coming. You can hear a hiss in the air.

    Raindrops clearing a fire - is the first thing you think off, when you hear the alien sound coming from the sky. The stench of salpeter and sulfur is filling the atmosphere and makes breathing nearly impossible. You fight with the urge to vomit and keep your guts, but the sound is getting even more terrifying. It is like a cacophony of screeches in your ears.

    You start to feel nauseted, on the brink of weting yourself, you see what you wouldnt have believed untill this very moment:

    A giant bolder made out of...guts?! Flesh?! Demons?! Fire?! ...somekind of fleshy abomination of living or, you hope so at least for those poor souls, dead flesh is heading straight for you!

    The stenchs grows thicker, the screechers louder, you can feel your drumhead pop, your leggings turn wet and the acid smell of bile accumulating in your mouth.

    "For all that is holy and sacred!" Is the last thing your mouth is ever going to scream in pain, agony, unbelieve and panic. Your last thought is just that this is impossible and we are all doomed, right when the Meteor lands on you, drowning you in his sticky, bloody, wet mess of flesh.


    Then you wake up. But you are sure...this was not a dream...This was a warning!

    -Have you READ everything before this?

    Yes!

    -Where are you from (Example - Iowa or United Kingdom)?

    Romania, Europe

    -How old are you?

    I am 19 years old!

    -What gender do you wish to be know by?

    I'm a male

    -What is your Minecraft Username?

    NimeniAltu666

    -What other games do you play on a semi-regular basis?

    Not really into gaming, I get really bored really quickly. I very rarely play some Planetside2 or singleplayer games like Far Cry which I complete rather quickly

    -What role do you enjoy taking the most in Minecraft (Eg: Farmer, Builder, Explorer, Digger)?

    Probably a Tech Guy. I'm not a good aesthetic builder. But I do love tech mods.

    -Which mod do you know best (from the ones we have installed)?

    This is the first time I play in 1.7 because I had some job-related issues that required me to be out of country for a while. But I'm pretty good with tech mods and I will definitely get along with them just fine. I don't know exactly what changes in what mods, but I will get the hang of it. I used to be really good with combining mods to create nice builds.


    -If you are added, how often do you intend to be on?

    I will be on almost daily, playing between 1 and 3-4 hours a day.


    -What is your schedule like, what hours do you most often play?

    I play mostly in the evenings (UTC +2)


    -Why do you think you will be a good fit for the Dogs of the State?

    Seems like a nice community, where not everyone get accepted (as a matter of fact, I got lost with that ROYGBIV thing). I've been always wanting to play in a community with nice and mature people, that doesn't have lots of plugins to ruin the game.


    -(Optional) What have you seen worked well on other servers that you might like us to implement too?

    As far I see now, any idea that I was having has already been done
