(Note: The name of this server has changed to "Rift: Blocks of Telara")SCREENSHOTS!
"Rift: Blocks of Telara" (or "RiftBlock") is a totally new server aimed to provide players with an engaging story and dungeon system present in RPGs combined with the creative and fun mechanics present in Minecraft. The server has entered a development cycle which will last only a few more weeks before opening up to the public. The development cycle consists of building the major city, programming quests, building and programming dungeons, setting up a website, designing graphics, and designing NPC skins. The server is being hosted by Bastion Services with over 4 GB of RAM.
A long time ago, six powerful and fearsome planar dragons roamed the cosmos, searching for planets to conquer. These dragons were collectively known as the Blood Storm, and their apetite for destruction was insatiable.
Eventually, they came upon the planet of Telara, a world created at the nexus of the six elemental planes. The amount of elemental power contained in the planet was immense, and each of the dragons wanted the planet for themself.
The dragons of the Blood Storm began to fight against each other. In their wake, villages were destroyed, fields were scorched, and entire continents were flooded.
Finally, a group of six valiant warriors formed together to defeat the dragons. Blessed by the gods with Legendary Weapons, the warriors culled the dragons during their chaotic wars, one by one, until only Maelforge, the Dragon of Fire and Regulos, the Dragon of Death remained. The six valiant warriors then founded Cambria, a city of power and wealth that to this day stands as a shining reminder of the Telarans' victory against the dragons.
...but there are rumors that Regulos has been plotting to enact his revenge. Death Rifts, one-way portals from the Plane of Death, have begun funnelling hordes of the undead onto Telara, murdering anyone they come into contact with.
Regulos has only two goals. First, to destroy Cambria. Second, to destroy the world.
The six valiant warriors have long since passed away, and the gods seem to have abandoned Telara in its time of need. Will you have what it takes to bring peace to the world and the end of Death incarnate?

Builder (Positions Open: Limited)
At the core of this server are the Builders. RiftBlock is looking for skilled builders who are interested in building in all styles. You will be required to work well with others and be open to compromise. Although you will have a plethora of creative freedom there are some codicils that must be adhered to (certain buildings must be built a certain way with a certain amount of space, etc.) The main city is fully done, so we will mostly be needing your help with building dungeons.
Content Designer (Positions Open: Limited)
Skin Artist (Positions Open: Two)
Urgently looking for Skin Artists! Please apply if you're interested!
We are currently running a plugin called CitizenSkins which gives all of our NPCs custom skins, but we need Skin Artists to make these skins! As a Skin Artist, you will have the responsiblity of creating original skins for all of our NPC characters. All of our main characters have already been created, but we still need lots of touch-ups as well as generic NPC skins.
Graphic Designer (Position Closed!)
The Graphic Designer will be responsible for creating a variety of graphics to use for the RiftBlock server, ranging from website banners to forum signatures. You will be working closely with our Webmaster to design images that he can use as templates for our website. You should be open-minded when applying to this position, and may have to redo a graphic multiple times based on my or the Webmaster's request.
Webmaster (Position Closed!)
With Beastnode hosting, we get a free sub-domain for a website. In charge of this website will be the Webmaster, who will create a friendly, professional-looking website featuring a place for news and announcements, a wiki, and forums. You will be able to appoint as many "Web Assistants" as you deem necessary (and they must be approved by me) to help you build and maintain the website.
Resources (Positions Open: One!)
Want to play a role in the staff, but you lack "artistic" skills? This role may be for you!
Resources is a purely administrative job designed to help me manage RiftBlock resources, which everything from the staff to advertising. In the Resources position, you will have the responsibility of creating and organizing documents, interviewing staff candidates, tracking plugin updates, generating publicity, and various other tasks aimed at keeping RiftBlock organized. This position requires you to have knowledge of how to use office software (such as Microsoft Office or Open Office), be easy to reach, have good people skills, and be easy to reach.
If you have any questions about the server, application process, or anything else pertaining to RiftBlock, feel free to leave a post on this thread or e-mail me at [email protected].
