"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." -Forrrest Gump

Forrrest is a heavily forested settlement with some dramatic cliffs. It is a piece of reclaimed land that was formerly ocean; as such it has some unusual terrain features, including a number of ocean biome mineshafts incident upon the surface.



Disabled commands

It is notable for the fact that commands are largely disabled within the area, encouraging traditional travel even for donors. This can make visiting the location hazardous, and exiting safely is non-trivial as the /home command is also disabled outside of the arrival box.

Free build

This is a free-build location, where anyone is welcome to come and stake out a patch as long as they don't modify anything anyone else has already built. All natural trees are available for felling, although it is requested not to cut down especially attractive trees.

The site requires all building to be tasteful, and any cobble boxes and dirt bridges and towers will be removed; all visitors are asked to refrain from building anything ugly.


A nether portal beneath the surface

There are some interesting underground features beneath the central mountains which visitors are encouraged to explore; however, care is advised since leaving the area may prove difficult if one does not have a pick with which to leave the underground zones.


It's clearly visible that Forrrest has gone from a dense and desolate forest to an active bush community, to finally evolve into a population centre that sprouts new cities and happenings. Forrrest, as the westernmost outpost of Freedonia, houses a lot of active players.
