The Lantern was a newspaper offering editorials and advertisement, which began by publishing weekly, and later published bi-weekly. The first issue was launched May 16, 2013, after the end of Civcraft 1.0, the newspaper continuing into the start of Civcraft 2.0.[1] Adverts could be bought for Iron.
