I guess I consider myself a towny veteran. Although I had long periods of absense, I've been playing towny since March of 2015. A1craft was not necessarily my first server, but I have most of my fondest memories of playing minecraft on it.
I remember the hours I spent expanding my town, socializing with the towny members, and building massive skyscrapers. It was a community unlike any other. But those times have come to pass. Nowadays, I'm the "last surviving member" of my town, hopping on occasionally to check on it, to make sure it stands as a testament to the memories I once had. Here are some pictures taken in the "good old days"
Old A1craft spawn
The peak of creative player population
My discovery of wearable wither skulls
My acheivement of reaching world border (before elytra)
The town that started it all (Blackmount)
One of my old friends
The crash of the Towny diamond pick economy
My old outpost (Forgot towny name, was PaulThur's town)
Asking for ink sacs to craft OP tome of knowledge (Unlocks all upgrades for slimefun)
Spicy Skyblock Chat
Skyblock Scourge known as toxicwheat (if you remember this kudos to you)
Epic throne I created
And the rest stays in memory.
Any old towny members here?
