The Medium


“"Medium" has a fairly obvoius double meaning. It is literally a middle ground, the wide band of spherical space in between Skaia and the Furthest Ring [...] It is also a medium in the sense of a canvas for paint. An ether for an emergent reality. [...] it has mystical, unexplained properties for sustaining life, specifically the players. It's not quite literally a vacuum, since people can breathe in it, though it is not necessarily a field of breathable atmosphere. In the same sense, it magically powers houses severed from the electrical grid. ”
— Homestuck: Book 2 commentary


The Medium contains the many mysterious, fun worlds of Homestuck, and now you can explore them in Minecraft!

So far, five worlds have been built. These include:

The Land of Heat and Clockwork

  • This world is covered in lava and mysterious machines. In the middle of a lava lake sits the Beat Mesa! Scratch it and reality will be changed forever! But only the Quills of Echidna (/warp jake) can scratch it! Be careful though, Dirk Strider will protect it at all costs!
    Hidden deep within the ashened caves of the world lies a Temple of the god Hephaestus. land_of_fire_and_clockwork.png

The Land of Frost and Frogs


The Land of Frost and Frogs
+ Travel to this chilly planet, capture frogs, and trade them with Jade Harley who is at the top of the Frog Temple!

The Medium is now REOPEN! However, the /warp plugin is messing up right now on Cueballcraft. The warps will be restored once it is fixed.

New Features:
A new Minigame Shop villager at /warp medium!
- Trade the heads of Vriska Serket and Eridan Ampora for brand new prizes!
- New prizes include potions, armored elytra, and a new angelic set of armor!
A new rule 3 has been added, as well as Rule 2 being updated (Check First Post)

Changes to rewards:
- Armored Elytra now has the protection of an Iron Chestplate rather than Diamond. (Still much better than just wearing a normal elytra)
- Totem of Resistance, Dwarven Fury, Eridan's Potion Box, Pogo Hammer, Fear No Anvil, Caledflwch, and Thorns of Oglogoth have all been removed and are now illegal to possess. If you have them, burn them.
- Angelic Armour now increases attack speed instead of giving extra health.

New rewards:
- Pirate Fury: a potion with different cool effects
- Sea sickness: a negative potion to throw on opponents
- Airship Engine: A firework with 50 Duration!
- Potion of Wrath: a negative potion to throw on opponents
- Potion of Angels: a healthy potion for you!

If you burned any minigame items, be sure to message RagedEclipse ingame or on discord for a compensary gift! Thank you for your patience.

Currently, there is a bug with the plugin we use to seperate inventories between worlds, i.e. SkyBlock and Factions. The bug will corrupt the data of item in player's inventories upon relogging onto the server.

The glitched data is as follows:
Heads sometimes lose their name, lore, and attribute modifiers.
Armor pieces will have their attribute modifiers change and it will become extremely spammy on the item. (The "When in main hand" slots are Attribute Modifiers)
Items, such as the Queen's Ring and King's Scepter will also have the attribute modifiers changed.
The unbreakable tag on any item gets cleared.

The only way to prevent this currently is to be sure to put your items into a chest before logging off.

I have changed the leather armor which is supposed to have the unbreakable tag (Poseidon and Demonic Creeper) to have Unbreaking 25, so be sure to get the newer versions!
