    == PLZ UPDATE! ==

    As we all know Spigot 1.8.1 is out now this plugin does not load in 1.8 PLZ can some one take over and update it to 1.8 it would mean a lot to us all!

    Hey! With alot of past experience with the SkyWars plugin, I couldn't help but reply to this comment! So, if you would like to speak in coloured chat, here is a tutorial: Example: So if you want green, do this: &&AA not &A You need to put 2 &'s and 2 of the color code. This works for all colour codes. Hope I helped! :D - DerpPlayzMC
