Basics:

When you die, you get deathbanned. This means you are banned from the server for a certain amount of time. Your deathban time depends on your rank.

‘Lives’ can be used to bypass deathbans. Lives can be purchased in packages, but they also come with ranks. See /revive.

When you are hit by a player, you are put into ‘Spawn-Tag’ or 'Combat Tag'. If you are spawn tagged, you cannot run into safe zones. Also, commands are limited. PvP is enabled outside of ‘safe-zones’. When in combat you cannot ender pearl into a safe-zone! Be careful!

When you die you are given a ‘PvP Timer’ which lasts for one hour. When you have a PvP Timer enabled you are not allowed to enter faction claims, including your own. Therefore you cannot /f home whilst PvP timer is enabled. If you want to remove your PvP timer, execute the command /pvp enable. BE CAREFUL! PvP will be disabled for you whilst your PvP Timer is active, so other players can’t kill you.

There are very few commands on HCF. You will not be able to warp anywhere other than to your faction's home. Therefore if you wish to go to spawn, then you must run there.

Money is an integral part of being successful. You need money to buy a claim; money can only be obtained through the Spawn Shop by selling 16x of any ore block. Fear not, you are given a small loan of $100 if you wish to bypass this step.

Maps usually last about 4 weeks, which is about a month and one week, before they reset.

When you disconnect from the server without doing /logout a villager is spawned in, at the position you disconnected. Your IGN is displayed on top of the villager and if people kill it, all your items drop and you will be deathbanned. However, if you do /logout, and wait for the ten second timer to expire, your npc will not spawn in.

When a Map releases, there is a two hour ‘SOTW’ or ‘Start of the World’ timer. During the SOTW timer, ALL PvP is disabled.

The use of enderpearls have a 20 second cooldown.

There are 6 ranks on our server:

Tier 6 > Sylph

Tier 5 > Feargus

Tier 4 > Fatebringer

Tier 3 > Thorn

Tier 2 > Qodron

Tier 1 > Sepiks

As mentioned above, each rank has a shorter deathban. Furthermore, each rank has a crate key and upon purchase of a rank, you will receive 3x Crate Keys for the rank you purchased. When a new Map releases, you are granted with 3x Crate Keys of your rank. You also receive a certain amount of Lives upon purchase of a rank or upon a new Map release.


Factions:

Each faction has a ‘DTR’ or ‘Deaths Till Raidable’ value. The maximum DTR a faction can have is 5.00. DTR regenerates 0.05 every minute if not on ‘DTR Freeze’. If a player in a faction dies, their faction is put on ‘DTR Freeze’. This means their faction will not be able to regenerate DTR for 10 minutes. Also, if a player who is in a faction dies, their faction’s DTR value will decrease by one. If a faction’s DTR goes below 0, they are ‘raidable’. Any land claimed by the faction will be unclaimed. People can steal their items and destroy their land. Whilst you are raidable, you can /f disband, but not /f create for 10 minutes to prevent factions from re-claiming their base.

To claim land for your faction, you have to ensure you have enough money in your faction balance. You can view your faction’s balance by doing /f balance and you can donate money to your faction by doing /f donate <amount>. Then you will have to do /f claim. This will give you a ‘Claiming Stick’. With this, you can tap the ground where you will have one corner of you claim. Then you're going to want to run to where you want the opposite corner of your claim. When you mark the corners of the claim, each block inside the claim costs $5. The server will then tell you to do /f claim confirm. When you run this command, the cost of the faction claim will be deducted from your faction balance and the land will then be yours. You cannot extend claims, and you can only have ONE claim. (https://forums.sylphhcf.net/threads/sylphhcf-claiming-guide.103/)

Factions are only allowed to have ONE /f ally. To talk privately with your allies, execute /f c a. To talk privately with your faction, execute /f c f. Ally chat is shown in blue whilst faction chat is shown in green.

When in other faction’s claims, /f home cannot be executed. If you find yourself trapped in another faction’s claim, execute the command /f stuck. This will teleport you to your /f home in 5 minutes. But beware, if you move, or are hit, your /f stuck timer is reset and you will need to execute /f stuck again.

Classes:

In HCF they are usually 4 different types of kits (Archer, Bard, Miner & Rogue). You will be given different effects based on the kit and each kit has special abilities:

Bard > Full Gold – When equipped, this class gives the player wearing it permanent Speed 2, Regeneration 1 and Resistance 1. Bards can give effects to the people in their faction:

-When bards hold Sugar, nearby faction members will receive speed 2. When bards tap the sugar, it deducts one sugar from their inventory, but gives nearby faction members speed 3 for 5 seconds.

- When bards hold Blaze Powder, nearby faction members will receive Strength 1. When bards tap the blaze powder, it deducts one Blaze Powder from their inventory, but gives nearby faction members Strength 2 for 5 seconds.

-When bards hold Iron Ingot, nearby faction members will receive Resistance 1. When they tap the Iron Ingot, it deducts one Iron Ingot from their inventory, but gives nearby faction members Resistance 4 for 5 seconds.

-When bards hold Feathers, nearby faction members will receive Jump Boost 2. When they tap the Feather, it deducts one Feather from their inventory, but gives nearby faction members Jump Boost 7 for 5 seconds.

-When bards hold Ghast Tears, nearby faction members will receive Regeneration 1. When they tap the Ghast Tears, it deducts one Ghast Tear from their inventory, but gives nearby faction members Regeneration 3 for 5 seconds.

-When bards hold Magma Cream, nearby faction members will NOT receive any effects. However, when they tap the Magma Cream, it deducts one Magma Cream from their inventory, but gives nearby faction members and themselves Fire Resistance for 30 seconds.

-When bards are inside other faction’s claims, if the members of the faction are inside the claim, when the bard taps spider eye, it deducts one spider eye from their inventory, but also gives the players of the faction wither 2 for 5 seconds.

When Bards hold or tap effects (excluding magma cream), they do not receive any of the effects they give to their faction members. The faction members need to be within 20 blocks of the bard to receive effects.

Rogue > Full Chain – When equipped, this class gives the player wearing it permanent Speed 3, Jump Boost 2 and Resistance 1.

-When rouges are holding sugar, they do not give effects to ANYONE, including themselves. However, when they tap Sugar, it deducts one from their inventory, and gives the ROUGE ONLY, Speed 5.

-Rouges also have the ability to 'backstab' other players. Backstabs can only be done with golden swords. When rogue backstabs a player, the player will take 4 hearts of damage. However, the rogue will receive slowness 4 and Mining Fatigue 3 and their gold sword will be broken.

Archer > Full Leather – When equipped, this class gives the player wearing it permanent Speed 3 and Resistance 1.

-When archers are holding sugar, they do not give effects to ANYONE, including themselves. However, when they tap Sugar, it deducts one from their inventory, and gives the ARCHER ONLY, Speed 4.

-This class has the ability to ‘Archer Tag’ a player. When a player is Archer Tagged, they take 25% more damage and their names are highlighted in red.

Miner > Full Iron – When equipped, this class gives the player wearing it Permanent Haste 2, Fire Resistance, Night Vision and Invisibility.

Spawners:

Spawners can only be broken with a ‘Crowbar’. This item is a Diamond Hoe, which can mine one spawner and six end portals. Once the crowbar has been used to mine at least one end portal, it can no longer be used to mine a spawner. Once a crowbar has been used to mine one spawner or 6 end portals, it breaks. Crowbars can be purchased at spawn for $20000. When you break a spawner or end portal with a crowbar, they will drop onto the ground. (https://forums.sylphhcf.net/threads/crowbar.1/)

KOTH:

King of the Hill, aka KOTHs, are pre-built areas where you cannot build, or break blocks, and happen at pre-determined times. You must stand on a small capture point for a designated amount of time, which is normally 5 minutes, without getting knocked off by other factions. If a player is knocked off of the capture zone then the time resets to 5 minutes. The reward for the faction that captures a KOTH is normally 2 'KOTH Keys', which open ‘KOTH Crate’ at spawn.

Can we make our own crowbars or do we HAVE to buy them?

and does the pvp timer activate after you get deathbanned and hop back on? So during the time remaining for your pvp timer to ware off, you can't do any of the things you mentioned¿

One last thing, say if I were to purchase my fac land with my starting money. Once I've claimed, can I not claim anymore or add on to my claim??
