Swamp Town is a project located directly south of Spawn, past a small ocean.

It is a town created a small distance away from setavulos' house, and primarily built by setavulos.


History

The area now known as Swamp Town was first settled by Jazzable, who used that area as a base for some time. After leaving for a new area, the swamp was left in a relatively naturalistic condition, barring the mine and nether portal that could be found built into the mountain.

In mid 2016, setavulos joined the server and settled in the area, building their house on a hill near the shore to Spawn. They lived in the area near the shore for a while, and then decided to build an Inn in a large clearing near the mountain. The old nether portal and mine was found, and eventually setavulos found out that this was Jazzable's old area. After building the Inn, setavulos decided to build a small town nearby to have a reason for the Inn's location. That was the beginning of Swamp Town.
