Extra Life 2018 Challenge

Welcome to Extra Life 2018! We’ve got a brand new challenge map for you, courtesy of admin dancingn27 *applause*

But first, let me tell you why we do this…

What is Extra Life?
Extra Life is a 24 hour gaming charity event that raises money for the children’s hospitals within the Children’s Miracle Network. We will be playing in dedication of our dear friend Jackson_Wilson whom we lost back in 2015 after his battle with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that mostly affects children between the ages of 10 to 20. Jackson was an amazing friend to everyone on the server. He was always so helpful to everyone, and very welcoming to new players. He often organized group projects that had to do with reusing and recycling in-game materials, and helping others. He was also our group historian, and had been in the process of chronicling our group’s history before he became too ill to continue.

Losing Jackson was very hard on us as a group. It was our first experience with the loss of one of our players turned friend, and proved just how close a group of internet friends can become despite the distance between us. Jackson’s presence can still be felt even on our newest map, AquaNu where the Jackson Memorial Highway runs through the nether network. Little things like that continue to keep his spirit alive and with us. We remember him the most this time of year as autumn was his favorite season, and Halloween the holiday he loved best of all. We’re proud to dedicate this year’s event to him by donating to the hospital he spoke so highly of while receiving treatment.

2018 Challenge Map: Waterworld

After stripping the planet bare of valuable resources and the melting of the polar ice caps, most of the globe is underwater. Some humans have survived, and even fewer still have adapted to the ocean by creating their own land.  You have been granted a plot of the ocean and a bit of land to start. Can you survive? Welcome to WaterWorld!

How it works:
You will spawn at the Command center where you will have access to your plot. You must follow the following rules and complete the following tasks to conquer WaterWorld.

Game rules in effect are the following:

  • mobGriefing = false
  • Difficulty = normal
  • Pvp = disabled
  • keepInventory = false *Be careful when you die!

There are only 20 personal plots in the complex. Each plot can hold a team of 1-3 players. If all 20 plots are occupied and we still have people wanting to join the challenge we may ask teams that have not reached the 3 person maximum to offer a spot to any additional challengers. This way everyone gets a chance to play and contribute.

From your command block at the command center you will spawn on an unlit island that contains exactly one stack of grass/dirt.  You will find no more dirt or grass available in your plot so be careful!

The only CB you will find in your plot will give you access to your own personal Extra Life villager.  No other player will be able to access your plot or your villager hut. Anything within your plot is free game for you until you hit bedrock. You will not be able to access any blocks outside of your plot.
Do not climb over or through side walls to other player plots. Doing so will result in immediate disqualification.

Throughout your designated plot, there will be hidden chests filled with items you will need to fulfill your requirements. You will not be able to find items anywhere else on the map. There are no additional ores or stones hidden beneath the sand so use your precious few resources wisely.
Hint: they are NOT underground below the water table.


Did you know that you can create air bubbles using signs?

Extra Life Vendor:
As mentioned above, each plot of land has it’s very own villager. This villager is special indeed as he will not be accepting your stack of cobblestone. Instead he only accepts a very special “Life Crystal” that can only be obtained through experience OR (this is the best part) in the spirit of the charity we are doing this all for, by donating to the Some Awesome Minecraft’s Extra Life donation page! For every $1 dollar donation you pledge you will receive 1 precious Life Crystal to trade with your villager. Did you lose your bucket? Step on a seedling? Your tree didn’t drop a sapling? Dug up all your grass? Your villager has them and more, but they won’t be cheap. The Some Awesome team is trying to raise $1,000 this year and every dollar you donate to the group donation page goes straight towards the team goal, and 100% of that goes to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. There can not be a better way to turn a day of fun and a few bucks into a good cause.
