FIRST, to start things off...
HAPPY EASTER! From all of us here on StompzCraft, we hope you guys are having a happy holiday.
Anywho, welcome to our 2nd Monthly Update! You thought we forgot, didn't you? Well, you wouldn't be too wrong! (For we almost did... heh.) But, (half-) jokes aside, we've gone around the server and prepped bunches of exciting information to bring to y'all, so, I'll quit my rambling and get properly started.
Upon recent findings, it appears that the brokers have gone on strike, the shareholders bailed, and there seems to be a lot of burnt pants on the floor. Must be Spring Break for the Economy Report. Stay tuned for an emergency update!
Despite disparaging outlooks, we've seen a bit of a boost in the economy, as new shops have sprouted up all over the server! We've taken a peak, and loved the progress we see. Be sure to check out Conner's Crazy Cheap Crud (conner_roks) , Randomness777's Shop (randomness777), BaronVonFrank's Shop (BaronVonFrank), and Frost's Emporium! (Frostglaex). We particularly took a liking to Frost's lava dome design, which we hear was designed by KirinLight himself. All shops can be accessed via /warp mall.

You may have also noticed, we at the Stompz team have chosen to get into the Easter "spirit". Because of this, you'll notice some new decorations around Spawn, curtosy of our own AccidentProneMan (heh, me). Much love to you Acci <3 (thanks Pings :3).
(I promise we'll have an Easter egg hunt next year; time got away from us, this time.)

Now, onto the even more exciting parts of our community here at Stompz: towns! Several new towns have made their way onto the grand stage of StompzCraft, and all of them have been making excellent progress. There are two in particular we would like to take a closer look at, Viridis City and Eagles Landing, led by their respective mayors, Randomness and ST3V3P! Let's dive right in.

Viridis City is a bustling town with a quickly-growing populus. Filled with dense vegetation and charming architecture, it's surely a beauty, bringing back old Stompz vibes that surely have been missed. Randomness has been hard at work expanding his town, and we wish him the very best of luck. :)

Now, on to Eagles Landing! We've loved seeing the progress being made with this town, and the wide array of builds being sprouted up all around it! The city itself is centered in the middle of several mountains, making for an excellent backdrop. Its mayor. ST3V3P, is always welcoming new members, so be sure to check it out!

Finally, we take a look at a massive project being undertaken by several Stomperz to unite the community. Many of you have already heard of it; it's called the Great StompzCraft Road (or as I'm personally coining it, the Stompz Continental).
The concept behind the road is to make a giant connector between every town on Stompz, something we've never seen done before in our community's history! Everyone is welcomed to pitch in, so if you'd like to lend a hand or connect your town, be sure to contact Beelan or one of the other town mayors working on it!
One of the most impressive parts of this road is the West-Gate Bridge. This is truly a marvel to look at, with a functioning lighthouse slapped right in the middle. We've even heard whispers of a city popping up around it...? Take a looksie!

Well, with all these new developments coming, we're very excited to see what's in store for next month's update. It seems that's all we have left to bring to you today! As always, we'll be keeping an eye out, and happy Stompin'!
