What is Towny?



Towns are the most basic part of Towny, allowing people to gather and work together as a group.

A town is a collection of residents with one of them as the mayor.

A town also has a bank which the mayor can withdraw from.

A mayor can also have assistants who have the same powers as him/herself.

Towns can have taxes that will be taken at the end of real time 1-day period.

A person can only be a resident of 1 town at a time.

Towns are divided into "Town Blocks," which are 8 block by 8 block sections of land.

The more residents a town has, the more "Town Blocks" it can claim. This is how a town expands in size.



Nations are a higher level that allow towns to ally together. This adds advantages such as giving towns more flexible land permission options and allowing them to participate in Server Event Wars.

A nation is a collection of towns (or just one town) with one of them as the capital city.

The mayor of that capital is the king.

A nation can join the war event, as well as ally other nations.

A nation also has it's own bank.

It can also tax the towns that belong to it.



Outposts let you claim an area of land that's not connected to your town.

Same size as a regular town block.

They utilize your town's tax rate.

They DO have to be associated with a town.

Just as towns, they have to be a certain distance away from another town.

Costs Crits to start. See current cost ingame via /towny prices



Wars are server wide events that all Nations are able to participate in.
