I Finally Archive Sanvar's Red/Blue Pilled Kit

by ianrandmckenzie

The kit you are about to see is a culmination of so many of my efforts, past and present, to make archiving kits as awesome as it can be. From adding icons with the enchantment animation to adding enchantments themselves to getting icons to link to other archives, making leather armor dye-able, and finally my most recent addition: banner archives and adding them to your kits. I'd like to thank everyone for their testing, feedback, bug reports, prais...read more

Distant Worlds Expedition

by ianrandmckenzie

After a lot of hype, the Distant Worlds Expedition by KiwiSlider has finally begun. I got my KiwiBrand explorer kit and have set out on my way. Here is the kit that Kiwi gave to all participants: To kick off my journey, I wrote, of course, a poem to commemorate the occasion: So far, I have found many interesting places throughout spawn. Most of it all in ruins, but some things still in-tact... for now. I won'...read more

Participated in the Pirate Party

by ianrandmckenzie

On a Saturday morning, I woke up to FlyingBroccoli sending me the coordinates of the Pirate Party! I wasn't sure I was able to make it because of how chaotic my sleep schedule is, but the timing was right and I made my way to the destination. I found the portal that took us all there, greeted with skull and bones banners adorning the nether portal taking us to the high seas. I wish I had taken more screenshots. There were cool ships, a trading post, and even a Kraken! As expected, Viktis...read more

The Crystal Forest + Other Builds

by ianrandmckenzie

As I continued with my prolific writing, I did some random builds along the way. One of them, the Crystal Forest, is part of a little quest that gives away the location through my rhymes. Here's the poem: Being that the forest is full of end crystals, there's a stable for your mount's safe keeping: After the Crystal Forest, I made this cozy little island garden home: I...read more

Became a Man of Status

by ianrandmckenzie

Less than a week after my return, the famous PvPer and venture capitalist KiwiSlider was taking notice to my writing exploits. With poems written about multiple players and groups, it seems I had proven myself to be a true figure in the Constantiam community. Kiwi chose to honor my efforts with a gift of his rare, un-dupable KiwiBrand Status Tenue kit: And here's the certificate of authenticity: No doubt, I h...read more

Participated in 'The Ender Rouse'

by ianrandmckenzie

Shortly after the release of FitMC's video about 2b2t's notorious griefer, popbob, using a backdoor to the server to acquire portal frames – and someone subsequently glitching an end portal announcement to the server – at the tip of everyone's mind was the infamous end portal opening sound and how it could be related to a backdoor. Leveraging this knowledge, KiwiSlider began hunting for un-opened portals and opening them up just to make people think he had backdoored the server, too. Of c...read more

I Get Invited to Spawnfagzia

by ianrandmckenzie

After taking the server by storm with my flurry of poem writing, I dropped poems all around spawn and nether spawn. I began writing about Constantiam and its players, mostly, with a few sprinklings of my own inspiration. After a couple of days, KiwiSlider submitted my name for approval to be invited to the Spawnfagzia base. I was accepted the same day and I went a hundred blocks out and built a little mountain hut with a cozy room and fireplace to write more of my works.read more
