    A Candle in the Dark, the Gravel City, the Plateau Polis, a Town on the Edge
    Founded - December 29th 2014

    Click here for LiveMap.

    New Haven is an idealised medieval-style town situated in the far south-western wilderness, close to the map edge, with the neighbouring ruins of Reutov to the south-east, Castle Nabradia close by & the submerged city of Lemuria to the north-west. The town is elevated upon a circular plateau, surrounded by various wild forests & harsh mountainous terrain.

    We are a proud member of the Amber Kingdom, the third largest on the server consisting of seven towns, with Annalora being our capital city.

    The town's main focus is roleplaying & will be structured around that as much as the server Classes allow. Farmer, Soldier, Crafter, Councillor, there are many roles to fill within the town. Use your imagination.

    Blazon (Town Banner) - Sable, a candle argent, sun Or in glory.

    Main Industries - Gravel Mining, Free Range Animal Husbandry (Pigs, Sheep, Rabbits), Quarrying, Ice Harvesting, Sustainable Dark Oak Logging

    Main Imports - Unrefined Ores, Fruit
    Main Exports - Textiles (Wool, Leather), Processed Meats (Pork, Lamb) Enchanted Items

    We are committed to developing mutually beneficial relationships with our fellow towns in the spirit of fraternity, whilst still striving to be the best we can be & having fun on the ImDeity server.

    We need rules to ensure that everyone is treated fairly, understands what is expected of them, & knows what is appropriate behaviour.

    1. Please follow the Server Rules as they always take priority over Town Rules.

    Any Griefing or Stealing can result in immediate Eviction from the town & possible confiscation of your belongings.

    2. Please let the Town Staff know if you are going to be inactive for longer than a week (7 days). If you are Inactive or Banned for longer than a month (30 days), you will be evicted from the town.

    If you are evicted for Inactivity, your belongings will be stored for the required 30 days, from that date. You will be sent mail to let you know to collect your belongings. If they are not collected within that time, they will be donated to the town.

    3. Please make sure you have enough dei (money) to pay your daily taxes. The town has to pay for each plot protected & taxes compensate for this. Failure to pay Town taxes may result in eviction.
    Current Daily Tax is 10 Dei
    Voting on the ImDeity website will give you 200 dei per day, more than enough to pay for your taxes. If you are having difficulty paying your taxes, speak to Town Staff.

    4. Please listen to the Town Staff. Repeated failure to comply with requests may result in eviction from the town.

    5. Please respect all players & their towns. Town & Player bashing is not permitted in any form.

    All Town Rules violations will be dealt with by the Council. Punishments can include, but are not limited to; Confiscation of Materials, Community Service, Expulsion from New Haven.

    Town Rules are subject to revision and you will be informed. They will be posted in the Town Hall main entry, easily accessible. Ignorance of Town Rules is not acceptable.

    All buildings are subject to review by Town Staff. Building outside your assigned plot on Town Property (within 300 blocks) without permission from Town Staff will result in immediate demolition.

    1. Please make sure your building meets the medieval aesthetic requirements of the town. If you are unsure, ask the Town Staff.

    2. Please build inside the border of your assigned 16x16 plot. You should not touch walls with neighbouring plots or exceed your plot border without permission from Town Staff.

    3. Please build under the town height restriction of 20 blocks. You may exceed this with permission from Town Staff.

    Any breach of the Building Regulations without permission from Town Staff may result in demolition of the build & a request to rebuild.


    Single Plot 14x14 - 500 dei.

    Two-Plot 30x14 - 1000 dei.

    Tri-Plot - Under discussion.

    Quad-Plot 30x30 - 5000 dei.
    A Quad-Plot is only available on request & with permission from the Mayor.

    Why is a Quad-Plot so expensive?
    A Quad-Plot is quite a large amount of space, so we would like to encourage people to make the best use of it. By making this type of plot so expensive, it becomes a status symbol, ensuring the person who owns it will take as much pride in their building as we do in ours. This price is non-negotiable.
