Greater Spawn is widely considered to be the 4,000-5,000 block area directly around spawn. It is littered with farms, griefed buildings, ruins, and lava casts. Certain, but relatively unknown cities were built here, such as New Russia (originally New Berlin) which was 20 players strong until its fall on July 26th. Certain bunkers created underground still survive, and its location was in the 3k Z-coordinate range. Other abandoned cities do exist, however many of their names have been lost to time. A large variety of tree farms, 'hotels', dirt and wood shacks, and ender-esque towers looking like cobblestone versions of End Cities. There are not many images of this place, and almost all animals here have died. Many players do not come here, because it is possible and easier to find a portal at spawn, and most newly spawned die of starvation before escaping to this region. PVP is not extensive here, as the zone is too large, allowing bases to survive for around 2-3 months in this destroyed land, although getting basic resources like wood and food is difficult, and requires careful farming. Less advanced PVPers will be found here, sporting stock iron armor, not very threatening, but in large numbers can annihilate small cities. Personally, I do not advise going to Greater Spawn due to the fact that it is full of empty cities and no real loot or action. Almost everyone skips over this location.
