Welcome, travelers, to the world of Acæthys. A land ravaged by the failures of the Thæ, of the conquests of Man, of the Vagai shamans, and of the exploits of the Advori. A once fantastical and advanced world fallen into chaos and destruction at the fall of the Great Veil- a massive starborne magical firestorm that first landed two hundred years ago- and this winter, the Veil threatens again.
Join us as we lay the foundations of a grand Roleplaying server, where you take on the role of mankind in a ravaged world where magic is shunned and many take stock in survival of the community. Every other week players can sign up to partake in Quests, wherein they gain Fame and rise through the ranks of legend- but also take on great peril, as during a Quest if one dies, he must make a new life. Our story begins in less than a week’s time, on December the 21st, Dawn of the Veil, as Humanity’s expedition lands on the isle of Medrae, hastily preparing for the storm. Interested parties can drop an application at our base of operations here:
Be sure to read through the fluff and familiarize yourself with the setting first. We’re looking for people with roleplaying experience and a good, hearty outlook. This server is starting from the ground up, with no dedicated players as of yet, and this also means that moderators will, over time, be chosen.
Players are expected to represent themselves by a certain basic level of polite conduct.
Players are expected to maintain an atmosphere suited to perpetual roleplaying: out-of-character chat is not to be made on the server itself. We will soon have other outlets for such things, namely forums and an IRC channel.
“Thievery” is more or less ok, as long as the person being robbed has the ability to defend their property. Example: If a player is off traveling to another part of the server and their house is robbed, that player was unable to defend their property, and the thief will be recommended for a ban.
“Griefing”, defined as the wanton destruction of another's property for personal entertainment, is right out and perpetrators will be banned.
Players can be responsible for bringing rogues to justice, and can craft in-game laws to that end.
Breaking reality through “Hacking”, though, is banned. We’ve enough of that, thank you.
If you have any more detailed questions, feel free to shoot either Ross_Varn or I an e-mail. - Ross_Varn - [email protected] - Olothontor - [email protected] You can also send me a message through the MC forums, but I can’t guarantee I’ll see it as quickly.
December 21st is our intended opening night, and will mark the date of our first Quest, which will be logged on the Wordpress blog. Applications will be processed within 1-2 days of submission.
Regardless- Welcome to the World after Death, Traveler.
If you want to have a decent- nah, not decent, brilliant- place to RP on Minecraft, we want you to join us. The name is Ross, and Oloth and I have many things planned for the future of this server, stuff that you've never seen before. The adventures of Acaethys are going to be unforgettable. Give it a shot. We'll see you there.
We now have 13 players, including the admins. There's plenty of room for anyone who wants to join, since we have 100 slots. Weekly or bi-weekly quests, epic ruins to explore, many locations; what more could you want?
I've posted, and hopefully will be bringing a few friends along with me.
Absolutely! For the time being, the Quests are catch-all and completely open. Later on down the road (presuming we eventually have more players) there will be sign-ups to make sure the Quests don't overflow with people. In both cases, you're free to participate or not. Thanks for the app!
I ask you to keep in mind that we're a tony startup server- don't expect greatness from the very start. I think my co-admin has approved you and three of your friends, so once you're on I'll direct you to the IRC channel I set up for OOC chat and suggestions. Please, I encourage you to hang out there. I would love the feedback on where you think the server should go. It is, after all, for you guys. Not just for me.
