History

Before the first house was built, and before the first Birch Tree was grown, this area was a vast and empty "Green" space, not many trees, plants or any signs of life. Then along came Mystila - After a long walk from Spawn, was looking for a place to set up as home. Karate chopped a tree down, made a few sticks and resources and made a mud hut, this was to be "Home" for the next 30 minutes - before A mine was found, with Coal, and iron and more importantly - STONE! Once the first day cycle kicked in, it was time to build the foundations that would soon lead to the village of Birchwood! Birchwood is currently expanding in most directions, and now features a paved market square (for future events) a temporary XP grinder, Library and enchantment centre.
