History of Cryinia, Volume One: Foundation The world of Cryinia has a long and storied history, consisting of chaos and worry, destruction and malice, and finally, success. Cryinia began in the middle of September in the year 2011, and ended on July 31st in 2012. Regarding the origin of the name 'Cryinia', I can only speculate; though I suspect it has something to do with all the 'whining and crying' committed by the server's vocal population following the end of the previous world, BR3. The clamor mostly due to disappointment regarding the Exodus. The Exodus was intended as a way to transition between BR3 and the world that became Cryinia. The server staff organized it to allow every individual on the server to bring two doublechests of goods; anything they wanted to bring along.Unfortunately, this plan failed as map corruption of some sort prevented the transfer of newspawn into Cryinia. Whether this is true or if there was some conspiracy behind the sudden failure of the Exodus, we shall never know. As a result, everyone quickly had to adjust to the reality that nothing from the old world could be saved; the world would start fresh. Thus the whining and 'Crying'. So as can be expected with any fresh start, Cryinia's fresh start was fairly chaotic, though it was executed without any serious issues. There were several differences between the Cryinian policy and BR3 policy, however, the most notable being land reform. In BR3, individuals were allowed to region as much land as they wished; up to a reasonable limit. It was usually determined at the discretion of the staff member involved. The new land policy in Cryinia was to allow each individual player to claim only a 75x75 block area of land, considerably smaller than previously allowed, but cozy and usable. However,the immediate effect of this policy was to make the foundation of towns and cities impossible, at least until the policy was adjusted to account for their creation. However, taking into consideration the fact that towns and cities in BR3 rose quickly and stagnated just as fast, one can understand why Cryinian policy was the way it was. So, as expected, Cryinia started developing slowly. The land restrictions worked exactly as intended, leading to far less overall waste of good land.Everyone quickly began snapping up their 75x75 allotments of land, dotting the landscape with lean, pragmatic homesteads, while avoiding the worst excesses of the previous world. The only problem that remained was transportation.The previous world, BR3, knew nothing of transportation problems. Transportation was served in three effective ways in the old world; Warps (Freely available to all, although staff members were needed to set them," Portals (which anyone could set up for a reasonable fee,) and minecart rails, which saw extensive use. Amazingly, BR3's railways were largely built by private interests - ordinary players instead of the server staff. The staff provided a public subway at the Spawn, but the rails themselves were privately built and maintained. The new transportation policy for Cryinia immediately banned the usage or development of warps. They would never come to be used by the public, though rumors exist that perhaps a secret warp network, useable by persons unknown, once existed in Cryinia. Portals (Stargates) would eventually come to be developed in Cryinia, but only after the introduction of Travellers. Much like today, the construction of stargates was left to this small group of elite explorers. Stargates would only achieve wide scale use about halfway into Cryinia's timespan, when the number of portals finally began to exceed the number used in the previous world, BR3. Until perhaps the Late Period of Cryinia, the new world could not hope to match the transportation system of the world of BR3. Although Cryinia's foundation was far from perfect, the builder population quickly became used to the changes made, and Cryinian civilization would quickly begin to rise beyond even the heights of the last civilization in BR3. Cryinia was fertile for expansion, literally and practically.
