Pressing further on to 200k

by ianrandmckenzie

Continuing on, I continue my proclivity for building inns. They continue to get bigger and bigger, with this one being my biggest – including a family-size suite with beds for the kids! At this location, I didn't write anything new. Instead, I transcribed a poem that I had written several months prior. As I began to acquire more equipment, inventory management continued to be a challenge, so I found this writing to be quite fitting: ...read more

Moving on to 100k NE

by ianrandmckenzie

As I continued to travel, I began to develop the philosophy of leaving anywhere I go a little better off than when I came. I didn't want to commit myself to massively epic builds, so I opted for simplicity, and paid extra attention to the smaller details to make my builds extra homey and cozy. When I came upon the 100k NE monument, it was quite destroyed. I had no idea what it looked like before, so I made a lot of assumptions. Then, I added a pub and inn next to it. I liked the idea of th...read more

Constantiam Community Mistakes Me for One of Their Alphas

by ianrandmckenzie

It's almost one month into my time on Constantiam. I am way in over my head with today's gamer culture. I've been out of this scene for over 5 years. Nevertheless, people seem to like you when you just be yourself, so that's what I did. However, being myself doesn't mean that I've forgotten what trolling is, or how to react to trolls – or how to be a troll. As I was becoming more established, and having a dupe stash under my belt due to a lucky trade with CuBoyd, I started embracing some ...read more

Trade with KiwiSlider

by ianrandmckenzie

Fortunately for me, the first Constantiam-related Discord I ever joined was KiwiSlider's Constantiam Trading Platform Discord server. He had quite reasonable rules for the server and does a wonderful job of ensuring that the server is free from the toxic liberties the Minecraft server itself allows people to enjoy. He routinely culls the server of people who engage in shady/larcenous deals and gives benefits to trustworthy traders. Given that I was quite new to the community, I sent him a...read more

Onward to 25k and 50k NE

by ianrandmckenzie

After creating my first book, I was energized to keep going. I reveled in the thought of someone finding my cliff dwelling and finding my poem. I pressed on for another few thousand blocks, and made another cliff dwelling with another poem inside: Continuing northeast, I finally hit some open seas and accelerated my travel via boat. This is where I happened upon my first encounter with a highway monument, an ocean construction at 25k northeast. Here...read more

My First Book on Constantiam

by ianrandmckenzie

As I alluded to in my previous timeline post, my intention on Constantiam was to be more of a writer and pacifist, writing books and leaving them around places. My biggest goal whenever travelling is to find a base, but instead of griefing it, simply leave some books behind. Even better, books that were written based on inspiration from the bases that I stumble upon. But, after traveling several thousand blocks, I was growing impatient. I wasn't finding any bases. So I decided to make a s...read more

My First Day on Constantiam

by ianrandmckenzie

I was one of the lucky few to join Constantiam. On the 16th of May, 2020, I submitted my whitelist application. I don't remember exactly what it said, but it was probably as cringe and LARP-y as a comment made on a FitMC video by RoarRageRemember: “I'm joining Constantiam solely for one reason: To be a scribe. To get books and quills and find someone very powerful that can protect me as I make a secret library very far away and act as court scribe.” “My code name will be Roar, and my MC ...read more
