And I'm back from my original post in this topic. I have played through a good portion of the intro, and I must say that this map is excellent, particularly with regards to the story line. I am also quite impressed with the architecture present throughout thusfar.
The play through is done in French, and so, I invite any French speaking persons, or persons interested in learning French, interested in this map or Minecraft to check out my video series of The Bane of Izarus.

Have fun watching!

There is something I wanted to request: can you include mention of the prologue in the Terms and Conditions.

The object of the game is to find the music shrine and forage through the land in search of 11 music records. There are many different and interesting areas to explore, each harder than the next. Because of this map’s length, size and difficulty, I recommend that only experienced minecraft players attempt this adventure. Here are some of the things you can expect from this game:
- A large, detailed map to explore with loads of exciting temples to fight through
- An RPG-style gameplay with challenging environments and bonus achievements
- A soundtrack with over 20 tracks to be played in-game
- Abyss pits, fiery death traps, cactus pits, hordes of monsters, and cake!
- Added a generalized map of Laora after the screenshots section
- Added a featured Let's Play section (still looking for more LPs to feature!)
1) All music discs must come from chests (records from creepers killed by skeletons do not count)
2) You must play on easy difficulty or above (I balanced the game around normal)
3) You cannot break through the glass ceiling of the map
4) You cannot take from a bonus chest without first successfully completing the bonus parkour track
5) You CAN place/break blocks and craft normally
GENERALIZED MAP OF LAORA
I've added this map to give players some very basic guidance in their quest across Laora. This map shows absolutely no detail of each region, but does give some idea of the relative sizes of each area. I have also included the number of records in each area. Hope this helps!
In a long past time, the continent of Laora was used by elves and men alike who worked together to build up mighty cities. Laora was renowned for its many large temples; people from all across the world would travel to Laora to marvel at its wonders. The reason Laora was so prosperous was because the elves of the Naori jungle built a large shrine for the gods and provided the divine with beautiful music. For these musical offerings, the gods protected the continent from plight and aided in the construction of the immense temples. After centuries of flourishing, the Laorean continent was visited by the dark lord Mephistopheles, who cast an evil curse over the land. All the beautiful temples were taken from the humans and elves and settled by the dark cult. To stop Laora’s divine intervention, Mephistopheles scattered all 11 elven music vinyls from the shrine across Laora in well-guarded temples.
The humans and the elves both tried to fight off the hordes of cultists and monsters. Izarus, a powerful wizard, was appointed by the Laorean mages guild to study the curse and try to figure out a way to stop it. After travelling to Laora and investigating the wretched lands, he condemned the continent and was forced to flee by the evil’s potency. The Laoreans now look to you, brave adventurer, to put an end to the curse. You must fight your way up into the district of Albeon and restore all the elven music records to the shrine. In order to do this, you will have to fight your way through swarms of cursed monsters spawned by the evil powers of the dark cult. Will evil completely devour Laora or will a true hero restore divine intervention and free the land of the plague?
Featured Let's Plays
This is a french playthrough: Prof. Aurore is a very experienced and meticulous player which makes this LP extremely tantalizing.
To encourage risky behavior, there are several bonus parkour tracks built across Laora. If you complete a parkour challenge without placing blocks, you are rewarded with bonus items found at the end of the track that will help you on your way. It is illegal to take from a “bONUS chest” if you have not successfully crossed the parkour track. Items range from food and supplies or enchanted weapons and armor. Keep in mind that you can still place blocks to cross a parkour track, you just don't get the bonus items at the end.
