Village name: Aotearoa
Village theme: A large treehut/hanging village in the jungle/Pre-colonised New Zealand
Introduction of your village:
The land of Elysium was caught up in a violent period. The War of Elysium had seen powers rise and fall, alliances made and destroyed, friends protected and betrayed. It was a particularly hard time for pacifists, as those who refused to fight were being slaughtered innocently everyday. It was getting more and more dangerous in the Nether Network, to the point where pacifists refused to enter the transportation hub for fear of losing their lives and material accomplishments to vicious townspeople and roadblocks set up by both sides of the war.
Around the time when the war was at its most brutal, Theodorre, a pacifist, and Tommyleej, a semi-pacifist, fled their homes in the dead of night, through the empty Nether Network and into Castra. From there, they were able to escape into the PvP zone of Elysium, an area almost completely untouched and far from where the war could reach. After finding a jungle temple full of treasures, they decided to stay in the beautiful jungle and to create a peaceful settlement high in the jungle treetops.
Thus, Aotearoa was founded.

Why should your village be official:
Aotearoa is unique, in the sense that it is built around the environment. We tried to use as many “natural” resources as possible, in order to fit in with the landscape of the jungle biome. We are also happy with our design - “Treetop Town”. Secondly, we’re proud to offer our residents safety - despite being within the PvP zone - with every bungalow fitted with a panicroom, featuring an iron door with the switch on the inside. Standard safety protocol is immediate evacuation to each resident’s panicroom in the event of a hostile invasion or raid. Thirdly (and finally), we’re very happy with our political standpoint. Aotearoa is strictly neutral (alliances, however, are encouraged) in all wars and conflicts. Aotearoa uses a unique governing system called “Assisted Democracy”. In Assisted Democracy, every resident gets a vote when deciding anything in relation to the settlement (excluding anything relating to election of leaders). The leaders get two votes. If, for any reason, a disagreement arises between the leaders, the residents may vote in order to end the disagreement.
We hope you consider this application ;D
