The castle originally boasted a cobble generator of innovative design with a rail track system to an underground storeroom. Construction of the generator was assisted by Krenath. The build also has a large glass, lava and water structure floating above it. While this took many hours to complete and looks impressive in its own right chivers88 has since questioned his logic in putting it directly above the castle as stylistically it makes no sense. It took so long to make that removal is not an option.

Work has recently been done on the village surrounding the castle. The village will expand to surrounding areas. The hovels in the village need furnishing and other players are welcome to claim one and decorate it. Permission must be given by chivers88 for this. Much of the land the village lies on is hand placed and there remains a nooby cobble structure in the village disguised by trees. If the owner of said cobble noob-hut would like to remove it chivers88 will recompense them most generously.

View of the castle shortly after spawn wall was constructed. Glass structure was not completed and terraforming had not begun for the village. Note nooby choice of location for entire build. Ugly cobble road in evidence, now removed.


Generator of innovative design, has since been reproduced elsewhere. Note entrance to castle at sea level.

Night view showing an early version of the iron statue right above the castle. Removed by the builder and relocated at a later date. Glass structure still unfinished at this point because, in the words of chivers88, it was a 'right ballache to do'.

Rear view of the castle. View of the underwater glass wall of the underground boxing arena. Experimental wool design on the tower now removed. Cobble platform in front of the glass structure deemed a bad decision by chivers88 and also removed.

Fun with signs.

chivers88 cannot find a large amount of mushrooms in a cave and not take a screenshot of them.

Cave porn.

View across the bay of PirateShip and Riot's Castle. chivers88 did not know who SlowRiot was or that it was his castle when he began his build.

The entrance gatehouse raised off of sea level. Note two zombies seeking refuge from the rain in the castle. chivers88 told them to fuck off.

View of the castle grounds before construction of the village. Ugly cobble noobhouse in the centre has now been removed. The enderman tending to his sugarcane on the left has been allowed to stay and has become a firm friend of chivers88. They enjoy playing backgammon together.


A gold armoured zombie, so far the only person to actually use the chess board. He lost to a cave spider who used the Blackburne Shilling Mate.

A good few hour's caving. chivers88 specialises in gathering resources from caves and does so exclusively wearing only iron armour. Like a boss.

Evidence of severe chest-room griefing. chivers88 has been a victim to several grief attacks due, he believes, to his close proximity to spawn.

chivers88 once found Rufas in a cave fapping into lava. chivers88 backed away slowly and fled.

Another bountiful cave.

Cobble road cleared and terraforming begun for the village.

Cobble platform removed and glass structure finally complete. "Bloody thing" - chivers88.

Large iron statue and gatehouse statues added. chivers88 is still not sure about the large iron statue.
