Towns and Wars


Towny is an advanced land claiming and wars system. Every player can be a member of one "Town" - which is essentially a land claim. Every town has a "Mayor" (claim owner), "Residents" (members of the town), and can have other players "trusted" as well (giving them access, but not counting them as a Resident).

Towns can be members of "Nations". Nations can go to war against each other. Being part of a nation also provides other benefits - like increasing the maximum size of your town.

Anything outside of Towns is considered "Wilderness". On our server, anyone can do anything in Wilderness.

Creating a Town

To create a town, you must not already be the Resident of another town. (You can be trusted in as many towns as you want, but can only be the resident of one).

If you are not currently in a town, stand where you'd like to create one, run /t create <name>, and then /t claim to claim that chunk. This will set your town's homeblock

After this, you can claim more chunks around your homeblock by standing in an adjacent chunk and running /t claim again.

Adding more players as Residents of your town will increase your claim limit

Falling into Ruin

If you are offline for more than 90 days, your Towny data will be deleted and if you owned a Town it will fall into "Ruin".

Towns also fall into Ruin when they are deleted (with the /t delete command).

While a town is in Ruin, the land is still owned by the old Town's Mayor and can be reclaimed (/t reclaim). However, the land is NOT protected - anyone can raid the land and modify it or steal from it.

Ruin lasts up to 3 days. After this time, anyone can claim the land.

Towns are the foundation of the Towny system. Every player can be part of 1 Town (either as the "Mayor", or as a "Resident"). You can be trusted to as many Towns as you want, but you will not count towards their number of Residents, and therefore will not affect the class of the Town.

"Mayors" are owners of Towns. They are the only ones that can control some aspects of a Town, like inviting others to the Town. "Residents" are other members that have chosen that Town as their home. Mayors can give Residents different roles and permissions.

There are 8 Town classes, which are based on how many Residents are in your Town. Your Town's class determines how many chunks it can claim, and how many outposts it can have.

  • Ruins (0 residents) - 1 chunk limit, 0 outposts
  • Settlement (1 resident) - 32 chunk limit, 0 outposts
  • Hamlet (2 residents) - 64 chunk limit, 1 outposts
  • Village (3-4 residents) - 96 chunk limit, 1 outposts
  • Town (5-7 residents) - 192 chunk limit, 2 outposts
  • Large Town (8-11 residents) - 320 chunk limit, 2 outposts
  • City (12-15 residents) - 480 chunk limit, 3 outposts
  • Large City (16-19 residents) - 640 chunk limit, 3 outposts
  • Metropolis (20+ residents) - 800 chunk limit, 4 outposts


There are 6 Nation classes, which are based on how many residents are in all of the Towns that are part of the Nation. Your Nation's class determines how many bonus chunks and outposts each Town gets.

  • 0-9 residents - 0 bonus chunks, 0 bonus outposts
  • 10-19 residents - 32 bonus chunks, 1 bonus outposts
  • 20-29 residents - 64 bonus chunks, 1 bonus outposts
  • 30-39 residents - 128 bonus chunks, 2 bonus outposts
  • 40-59 residents - 256 bonus chunks, 2 bonus outposts
  • 60+ residents - 512 bonus chunks, 3 bonus outposts
