If you want to help with the lore part of the map, comment on this thread or send us a private message. This is what you can do as far as lore goes:
Rumors - NPCs in taverns will have hints and clues leading to caves, temples, or quest locations. Write a sentence up to a maximum of 85 words that an NPC can say to the player so he/she will go search for the cave/temple/dungeon/etc.
Example: "Did you hear about the little girl who went missing? Last time anyone saw her, she was looking for her lost father around Deepwood Crypt."
Lore Books - Around the map you should be able to find tons of books that add to the lore of the world. Write a story of a maximum 500 words about a temple, city, NPC, etc. Please note that this will be hard to do until the Public Beta Testing of "Fall of Darkness" is open.
Build a creation and use worldedit to save the schematic and upload it to minecraft-schematics.com. Make sure it's easy for us to know where we stand when pasting your creation (example: stand on a red wool in front of the entrance). Also, when uploading, please name the creation "Fall of Darkness - CREATION NAME".
What can you build?
-House (small, medium, large)
-Guild Headquarters (Thieves' Guild, Miner's Guild, Bandit's Guild)
-City Wall Design (maximum 15 blocks long - this will be stacked multiple times around the city)
The creations can be very detailed, but the scale has to be realistic in terms of Minecraft realism. Example: a guard tower shouldn't be bigger than 5x5x20
