THIS THREAD WILL NO LONGER BE CHECKED. GO HERE: http://www.minecraft...munity-new-map/

Posted ImageWe will likely not update immediately after 1.4. Also, we will have a fresh map upon updating.

Society Rising is back!

Community is a crucial element of Minecraft SMP. Here, at Society Rising, we believe in having a small yet outstanding community building and surviving cooperatively. Also, we believe in the vanilla core of this great game, so we run no game-affecting plugins. We stand out among the freebuild and PVP servers dominating today’s SMP scene by offering a close-knit and friendly community alongside town-based building.

Society Rising originally was started in late 2011 shortly after Minecraft’s full release. Almost a year later, the original three admins are returning with a new and better than ever Society Rising. Many of the original dedicated members also return, ready to create more high-quality buildings and make the server great again. Society Rising has an exciting future!

We also pride ourselves in our excellent staff team. Just like you, we play fairly and will never spawn items for ourselves or anyone, and all builds are made in survival with legitimate materials.

The server is hosted in Chicago, but our members come from many parts of the world!

Rules (follow dem):
  • Golden rule: don’t be a dick. Apply common sense. Don't start stupid fights. Don't be pretentious. We're aware that this is a broad rule, but if we call you out on this rule please respect our analysis of your behavior.
  • Don’t grief. Seriously, just… don’t. Breaking into people’s houses/farms/whatever is considered griefing.
  • No stealing. We can track this, guys.
  • Respect the staff and listen to what they say—they know what they’re doing! If you think that a staff member is being abusive, please inform another staff member.
  • Cheats/hacks of any kind will get you banned.
  • Ask permission before using any outside mod that may give an unfair advantage. X-Ray, Smart Moving, and similar mods are forbidden.
  • Try not to build ugly things (ex. cobble box houses, noob towers) or destroy the landscape (ex. chopping down entire forests).
  • If you trigger a creeper explosion, clean up after yourself, ESPECIALLY on other people's property and in towns!
  • Act honorably with PvP; no attacking people for no reason.
Have fun!

Current Towns:
Oakcrest:
The mostly rural town of Oakcrest is the most populated town in Rising and the first place seen by new arrivals. Spread over a large area including multiple biomes, Oakcrest lines a large segment of the mighty Oakcrest River. Most residents keep farms and livestock, and living is safe and laid-back. Still, it is a lively town and the center of the land of Rising. Points of interest include the spawn building, Beacon Island Lighthouse, Super's Bakery, Riverside Books, Taxi Tower, and Blaze's Alchemy.
Screenshots of Oakcrest:

Port Starson:
South of Oakcrest lies Port Starson. A small port town, it has become a more isolated and laid-back place to live than Oakcrest, the spawn town. It straddles multiple biomes, including the vast ocean. A project is currently underway to connect it to Oakcrest by rail.

Tell us a bit about yourself: Well i certainly love building things. The main reason why i wanted to join this server is to get away from the hardcore pvp servers. Its rather annoying when i was building a lovly house,farming and mining then suddenly someone show up and kill me for no reason =_=
Additional Info: i dont talk much on the chat if i dont know anybody but i still talk sometimes
Any questions?: is there a spot where we can build and mine without being in danger by pvpers?
