We now have an area of Frontier specially reserved for pvp gameplay - the Wild West
! This region runs by a variation of the standard rules
that allows things like players to attack and rob each other at will. However, once you leave the area, normal Frontier rules apply.
The area is found near the southern edge of the world. A trainline is being made but there is also a signed path from spawn via the Nether.
The border around the Wild West is marked by light poles. Many have signs that indicate that you are entering the pvp area (or exiting if you approach from the other side).
On the eastern border of the Wild West is the peaceful village of Piedra Roja
(that is "Redstone
" for those from north of the border). This town has villagers who will happily trade with you in all manner of items and services. However, the village has its own by-laws
, the most of important of which is no pvp gameplay is allowed within the town walls
. So stay a while and get to know the locals. For once you leave its protection and journey into the Wild West, you will need your wits about you. Wild beasts and banditos are the least of your worries.
