This server was built entirely by me. it was made in december of 2015. every building is fully decorated. if you would like to tour it, message me on xbox 360. my IGN is SixWingedWraith. if you have a video capture card and would like to record a tour for me, It would be very appreciated. now some backstory...
Before the Collapse, we had thrived. Our empire was mighty and vast, stretching across the whole of Vara. We had conquered many and were renowned around the globe. Our greed led us to the Nether. In the beginning we used it to learn. But as our avarice grew, we tried to control the Nether... contain it. We were foolish and the price for our ignorance was too much to pay. The events that occurred during the collapse are lost to us now, but what we know is the conclusion. the whole of Vara had sunk below the sea. An entire continent vanished beneath the waves. As luck would have it though, our young Prince was away on voyage. His armada had returned to the ruins of the Empire of Virak. He turned his sails to the neighboring continent of Eethia, a still relatively unknown land to the Viran people. It is here the young prince, Vycer Athian, claimed a new home upon an island he named Varis.
I am still in works on creating a timeline for this server. the present year is 1395 A.C (After Collapse) The history will talk about the rise of the Kingdom of New Virak, its conquering of the northern plains and the city of Islyut, as well as its relations to the city-state of Werland, and the desert nation of Gyre. So far I am 60% finished with New Virak, while the other two nations (Werland and Gyre) are still in planning.
anyway, what you came here for... the Pictures!!!
Entrance to Varis from Andravil Bridge.
Overview of Varis City. the left side of the city is Varis Major, containing middle class to upper class citizens, the Sky Palace, the Grand Cathedral, Fort Varis, the New Virak Colosseum, The Mausoleum of Sunken Kings, The Stone Shop, Redstone Store, and the Other World Store (containing Nether, End, and Sea temple stuff) the right side of the City is Varis Minor, containing lower class citizens, The Library of Elements, Varis Hospital, Schoolhouse, Docks, Butcher, Inn, Blacksmith, Mine, and Marketplace. The 26 houses that are built on the water are the Bungalows. where the poorest citizens of Varis live.

Well, its been little over a month since I started this thread. had to double post because I cannot add more to the original. I hope you all enjoyed viewing it (can't tell since no one commented lol) but anyway I have made quite a bit of progress on the Kingdom of New Virak. I can say I'm about 85% done with it now. 2 villages and a city, then a bunch of ship building and I'll be finished and onto the next project (City-State of Werland).
Anyway, onto the new pictures. We'll start we're we left off, Islyut City.

Next we head up to the Northeastern corner of the Kingdom to the Castle of Islyor, which was severely damaged during the Vari Siege of the Castle. it has since been repaired and patched up where necessary.
Welcome to Castle Islyor.
Palisades made long after the siege in order to increase defenses and personnel
Side view of the Castle. Inside is a partially destroyed Blacksmith, Armory, Mess tent, Stables, and water reservoir

Now for some Countryside views and my upcoming projects
Entrance to Foravil. the village I am currently working on. it lies south of Castle Islyor, and east of Islyut City. So far it features the Oakhall Manor, a flag fountain, and a Lumber store.
Countryside view of northeastern Kingdom. You can see Islyut city to the left, Castle Islyor to the north, and Foravil is the open space in the Great Isla Forest.

And as an added treat. a sneak peak at the Grand City-State of Werland!
Thanks for viewing my server. if you would like to tour it personally then message me on Xbox 360, SixWingedWraith. There is PLENTY more to see than what is shown. EVERY building is decorated, there are even secrets hidden throughout the map that could only be found through searching in depth. These screenshots cannot perfectly encapsulate the immensity of this world. And this is just 1 kingdom. there are still 2 more nations to build and 2 ruined cities to create/finish. So if you enjoy this server, feed my ego and tell me lol
