I've been working on this map since i started playing minecraft (september 2010).

You are free to ask and talk about the map, comment, discuss things, quests, report bugs, ask me where to find something, if you have a trouble with a quest, your experiences, what have you found... and other things. Just dont be shy.
Remember to sleep everytime you reach a new city, otherwise, if you die, you will spawn at the last bed you slept in (if you don't sleep at any bed, you will spawn outside the jail sewers at Minecity)
Don't waste time sending me messages, I will not reply them, if you got any question or anything else related with this map, post your reply here at the topic - Thanks.
The instructions are in the README inside the downloaded files.
Just to point out, Minecity is the worst city (city where you spawn), make sure to visit other 13 cities for great structures, landscapes, more quests, and a lot of improvements.
Thank you guys for voting at the poll, the most voted option was to port this map to multiplayer. So I am doing this. v0.6 is already being worked on, no mods and will work on multiplayer, there will be 2 versions, one for singleplayer and another one for multiplayer, featuring a few co-op quests. You may say, no mods, then map will have no quests and NPC's and all that, just the structure of map itself.
Well no, Aramis v0.6 will have NPC's, quests, rumors, cities will be improved, a lot of structures from cities will be modified, like Minecity structures, new features, a whole new texture pack, a lot of bugs will be fixed, money system is also coming back and everything from v0.5. Also, best thing is that map will be always up to date since it will not use mods.
I will not add the 250 quests, since some of them needed mods, but there will be more than 100 quests and even new ones!
The only things that are not returning from v0.5 are the new items and some of the new mobs that v0.5 included.
Stay tuned and check last page of thread, I will post daily updates with progress of map, features I have added, etc!
It's out! The beast update, and probably the best update that this map will ever have! It includes:
3 new regions, 20 new addictive hours of gameplay, new NPCs, jobs, a salary system, 100% new RPG texture pack, new awesome mods that will improve gameplay, robbable banks, more rumors, improved quests, new empires, a new economy system, a new buying house system, waypoints at every empire, city and village, new villages (2 new empires, 3 new big and beautiful cities and 2 new creepy and cursed villages), fixed a lot of bugs, epic new landscapes, more than 100 new quests, improved the other cities, etc! Download now, and enjoy update v0.5

ALL errors you might get (98% of them) are because you installed the mod pack wrong. And if you installed it right, but get stuck on the minecraft loading screen, delete the folder named META-INF inside the jar.
Current bugs with the map (not mod pack):
There are some grammar errors, just things like random letters I typed and didn't notice. For example, I didn't write "right", I wrote "rightl" or things like that, random letters I did not notice, it's not a big deal, you will not even notice it.
A part of the abandoned jail sewers takes you to a room related with a quest.
