Welcome!
Congratulations on finding your way over to the home of The Black Square! You've found a dedicated group of "casual hardcore" players. If you're looking for a chill group of players to hang out with, you've come to the right place. We're the gamers who'll find Alternative Solutions(TM) to big problems. If you have a crazy idea we'll give it a shot - if it works, we'll use it. We need people who think outside the box. We need unconventional thinkers and gamers. We don't stick to the meta. We forge our own meta.

Mumble is required. Our address is mumble.theblacksquare.net port 7389. Feel free to drop in any time, say hi!

ArcheAge Launching!

[$] ArmyKnife a posted Aug 30, 14
ArcheAge will be entering Open Beta on the 4th, and 'Early Access' on the 12th. The game officially launches on the 16th! I'll be posting on the forums with regards to my plans for TBSQ to exploit the economy play the game soon. I'll also put up some recommended builds for people who haven't had a chance to try any of the beta releases.
Because I forgot a power cord. Sorry!!! This should be sorted out by Sunday.
Hello Everyone,

Our Minecraft server will be coming down temporarily as of 7/09/14. I'll be making a backup of the world before bringing it down and put it up on Mega so it can be recovered in the event that I forget my encryption keys. This means the server will be back up within the weekend, hopefully on the evening of 7/10/14.

 - ArmyKnife

EDITED: Corrected the date of downtime. I need to pack my car tonight, so the server is coming along too.
