I would like to say I agree with Vulpine. I have played a number of towny servers and most of them keep me around till around the middle ranks and then I run out of things to do. I have only stuck around on this server simply because of the community it has but not everyone is so easily pulled into it. There have been a few towny servers i've played that have towny war/pvp and it has added an interesting and exicting element to the game. Recently playing a server I only remember as PirateCraft but it allowed for town based warfare and it was rather exciting getting prepared to defend or attack.
