The shrine of the block
 

One dark and stormy night, a man returned to TOGopia, after a short journey away. When he returned, he noticed that he now possessed great powers.

He tested this power by bestowing a gift upon a fair maiden of the town. Outraged at such a "common" gift, and displeased with his unnatural and mighty powers, she summoned the great Gods.

The Gods stripped the powers from the man, stating that his elevation to blue was a mistake, and was not meant to be. Returning him to his former, lowly red status.

The fair maiden was left with this ill-gotten, "a bit cheaty" gift. A testament to the great power that the poor man once held. So, she set off to the great desert of the South to gather some sand. With it, she built a shrine, and placed the gift she had received upon a glass platform, so that all may gaze upon it, and be forever reminded of the great gift she had been given, but could not accept. The generosity of this one man, who had used his great powers for this one small token.

Does it have a mystical and magical connection to the Temple of the Block (or whatever the shrine close to 0, 0 in the survival server is called)?

Obsi 30th June 2011 02:10 AM

No.. completely unrelated to that...

I'm not so sure... If you stand long enough at a specific spot I've heard that you can see parts of the chat channel of those that stand in the other temple! wooooooo!

Obsi 30th June 2011 11:03 AM

Hahaha

Maybe its the smaller spot to worship for those who can't make the trek all the way to spawn to the temple of the cube (I think that is what it's called).



Actually it's a joke really... although the story is based on true events - just elaborated a bit for better storytelling... I thought someone in particular would get a laugh from it... when he sees it.

Nice Obsi .... having been there for the original event that is a fitting tribute to 'the block'

The true followers of the cube have no relation to those misguided followers of the block.

The temple is build around the mystical iron block that was handed down from heaven to Misnik when he was in the mountains gathering wool from the local flock of sheep. When lo did a voice speak on to him from a burning tree (no relation to the soon resulting forest fire) and reveal the divine cube in all its shiny goodness.

Following the commandments from on high the prophet did construct the temple and when it was done the voice was pleased and bestowed upon the cube a portion of divine power allowing it to float in mid air for all to see.

The temple is open to all Pilgrims to visit the Cube Sunday thru Friday. On Caturday is bingo.

Yey, potential for religous war between the creative and the survival servers! :p
