What you have before you is another Minecraft adventure map. Tales of Noralon is a massive adventure map in the making. Your character is the son of a wealthy retired soldier of the Valiant Blue Army. Your family has fled south in search of safety from the invading armies of vikings from the North. The once great cities of Noralon, controlled by the Valiant Blue Army, have been burned to the ground, and the villages pillaged. The army has been destroyed, but your father and other leaders are forming it back and preparing for a resistance against the vikings. As you fled south, your two older brothers were murdered at the hands of the vikings, and ever since, your father has had a negative character. The small village you live in is preparing against the vikings, just like the other villages (not yet built) scattered throughout the lands. Your character has just turned 18 years of age, the year that marks adulthood. You must prove to your father and the village that you are a responsible adult who will be able to lead the resistance alongside your father.
The storyline will be a major, if not the most important, aspect of this adventure map. It will literally be a game made within a game. For now, the main questline is only one book 1, chapters 1 and 2, but I believe there will be four books, each with 9-10 chapters. There may be as many as six sidequest books, each with around 9-10 chapters.
The expectations are above the roof, but with only one person working on this, the project may take a long time to be fully complete. In fact, I am putting this map in its alpha version. For over one week, I have been writing the epic storyline, which I can say is already almost complete, and I have started to build the world itself. As of now, Noralon only consists of one small town, but this will grow into many great cities, and countless numbers of villages. The quests are being transferred from paper into the game, one at a time. There will be countless easter eggs hidden throughout the map.
What the map will consist of when it is complete:
- A couple of huge cities
- Countless villages/towns
- Epic main storyline
- Dozens of sidequests that help lead up to the main story
- Hundreds of easter eggs throughout the map
- Hundreds of hours of gameplay
1. Do not break any blocks unless the quests tell you to do so
2. Follow the storyline!
3. Complete all of the quests of the main storyline in order
4. You do not need to do all of the side quests, but it is highly recommended for the full experience
5. Warning: The length will be really long, so if you are looking for a quick map, this is not for you. As of now, Alpha Version .5 there is approximately 1 hour of gameplay.
6. There is a lot of reading involved, please be aware of that!
This texture pack is a must! This texture pack helps make this map original. Without this texture pack, you will be unable to play the map the way I have pictured it to play. You will probably still be able to play without it, but it will take away from the full experience of the map.
Why this texture pack is a must!
- As you play the game, you may notice the many paintings that are used. Without the texture, the flags will not be there alongside the beautiful paintings.
- This texture pack is perfect for an RPG styled map.

Thanks man, really appreciate it. I will be constantly updating it, but being a student I can't guarantee the updates coming as fast as I would hope. Other than that, I will be updating the main post right now
Can anyone provide some feedback for me? Already 15+ downloads, but only one comment. I love everyone's feedback, even if it is negative. That's right, be negative, it will help me make the map better.
Other than that, here are some announcements:
I have written over Book 1 Chapter 3 and 4 of the main questline.
I will begin adding some side quests either tonight, or tomorrow afternoon.
i am going to be doing a LP on your map for my youtube if you are cool with it.
That would be awesome man! Just comment later on with the link, and I will put it into the original post. Hopefully, I can bring in updates faster than you complete the map It might be a little tedious collecting materials though, but they will all be needed in future quests. Also, can you tell me where you spawn? You should be in "Voltair's House" (the sign is found above the door in front of the house)
Thank you everyone for the positive feedback so far! Anyone who wants to do videos for youtube of this map can whenever they want, but please include the link back to this forums topic somewhere in your video and/or your description. Cheers!
howdy there. I was just wondering how the progress is coming along?:) I am excited to play your map but my gf and I are gonna wait til you get further along in your project before we get into this awesome sounding adventure of yours:D good luck on your game and in your classes!
