Joining this server I spawned under a large manmade mushroom, on an island in the sky. It overlooked a large sign bearing the server's name. I walked down a path and landed in a series of rooms giving detailed and thorough tutorial information about the server, and how to use various featuers.
Immediately they made it very clear the server rules with a large wall that you'd have to try hard to miss, as well as giving new people a book listing all of them. They do not allow swearing, as they are a family friendly server, their Planet Minecraft listing emphasizes.
As I wandered around the spawn, and decended into the rooms mentioned earlier, someone approached me and offered me golden carrots to help me start!
Exploring the rooms, I liked how they have a visual demonstration on how their container locking plugin works.
The server theme came off to me medieval, and yet, somewhat quirky. Many smaller rooms and blocky bright colors gave the server an RPG feel. See below for a picture of their main spawn building, mirroring a large old royal castle.
CapeCraft delivers on the information front, as well as for creating a unique feel from the moment players spawn. The players were friendly, and were busy chatting away together. There were no staff online at the time of this brief review; a player told me that staff are often online when I asked in public chat.
Briefly exploring their donation website, there were no "pay to win" perks found.
