"Figured I’d make an open space for those who’d like to join me."


Halfast was a planet colonized sometime during the Eighth Era.

HyperSilence established it as a new home for Hallowers displaced for years after Dragonhollow winked out of existence at the end of the Seventh Era.


History


Advent

"We have a semi-active community, some people have been here for years, some for 5 minutes. If this place suits your fancy, feel free to stick around. If not, no need to waste your time."
HyperSilence hard sells Halfast


HyperSilence in early days of Halfast

After Dragonhollow was consumed by the arrival of Nyx—the long foretold Eternal Night—the surviving Hollowers spread across the stars and settled on other planets.

With the sting of Retrohollow's failure faded from recent memory, the former Archpriest of Eris HyperSilence created a colony on the distant world of Halfast, having grown nostalgic for the simpler times of yore when he would roam with, live alongside, and occasionally kill his friends and foes.

Using the faster-than-light communications network Discord, he broadcast an open invitation for all Dragonhollow refugees to accompany him in building a new home. The planet was so remote that only those he personally reached out to could find it.


Emergence

Wiz: The pvp aspect currently seems kinda weak, If we hade something like the badlands id gladly return with a few mates
Wiz: I know Jrod & Gabault would agree xd, (i think?)
Gabault: i dont disagree
Jrod: I also don't disagree with that statement
Wiz suggests murder would bring everybody together


Boo and Sharkberries fish together at an Iolanthe bridge

HyperSilence's summons was heard far and wide and he was soon joined by a number of fellow expatriates.

Zen broke ground on the river town of Koan, providing an XP farm, fishing hut, and graveyard for the community. Alec settled there and built a hobbit hole. Not far downriver, Sharkberries and Boo built Iolanthe, home to fisher folk.

Jrod defeated the ender dragon Nightfyre.

An unknown thief stole many of Zen's personal belongings, leading Hyper to greatly extend the time taken for claim deeds to expire. At the same time, he made a survival kit available to all residents.

BEEEEES

Despite Hyper's reminder that it was never intended to be a direct continuation, many veterans considered Halfast to be the spiritual successor to Dragonhollow. Others such as Wiz and Gabault were disappointed that person-to-person combat was prohibited.

During this period Halfast struggled to find its own identity and emerge from the long shadow cast by Dragonhollow, ultimately awaiting a time when the world became more comfortable with the balance between past and present.


Rise

Absurd: YAY!!!
HyperSilence: Hahaha we missed you too buddy <3
Wiz: Damn what is happening
Wiz: Everyone is coming back ;_;
—Old veterans come home


Zerg, Jrod, Sharkberries, and Alec prepare to ride the water slide beneath Iolanthe

Sharkberries began an ambitious effort to renew interest in Halfast and grow the community, beginning with word-of-mouth efforts via Discord and the construction of the Camillia city-state, which would eventually became the planetary capital.

Inspired by his efforts, HyperSilence made it possible for anyone in the universe to reach Halfast and launched a promotional campaign designed to convince newcomers to visit the planet. He collaborated with Shark in the creation of the Biodome, a new entrance point featuring parkours and random teleportation into the wilderness.

Ranks were reestablished and perks were added for citizens and veterans. Rules governing combat between residents were changed to be less restrictive in order to appeal to a wider audience without compromising the agency of those wishing to abstain.

Downtown Camillia, the capital of Halfast

HyperSilence chose Jinx, Zen, Sleekit, Tox, and Sharkberries to serve in his new ruling hierarchy as Arbiters of Halfast, charged with upholding the values of Halfast and issuing punishments when necessary.

To ease the struggle of his residents, Hyper introduced a number of quality-of-life improvements including the GPS, variable lighting, and a Bee Breeding Kit.

To encourage and regulate single combat between residents, a number of dueling arenas were built beneath the Biodome.

Jrod and the Scylfings were the planet's primary threats, murdering newcomers and veterans alike, until the return of Greywatch offered refuge and the promise of resistance against deadly banditry. This led to the inception of Eternal Chaos, an alliance of convenience between former foes Alec and Jrod. The rivalry between the two organizations came to dominate the landscape of the Eighth Era.

By popular demand and in collaboration with the magician Lilac, HyperSilence reinstated the Survivor event by hosting Halfast Survivor, pitting his residents against the elements and each other in a battle over who could survive the longest. Alec was the first victor, claiming Phantom Armor that made him unseen to monsters he encountered in the wild.

On 8E:333, warriors gathered to do battle against a fierce ender dragon and each other in the first WeekEnd event with Eternal Chaos securing the lion's share of the loot.
