I'm not 18 yet. (Still 13 but I can still play and I know some people who can advertise. I play a lot and op would be great but I can still spread the word without leadership. (Ps I have experience with leadership on other servers)

"Hated. Hopeless. Sleepless. Sane.Alexel Bear's the Shadow's Hame."
For a long time, you may've looked upon the minecrat forums, searching and searching, you wanted role-play, not poppycock with no finesse, or art! And here, you'll find what you desire! A world hand-crafted by a talented world-painter, a lore rich, and magnificent. Staff to aid you, rather then hinder you. You are the world, do you wish to become a king? A shifty thief, a suave bard?! It's all possible! Long have we been working on this project, starting with our contacting of mister Patrick Rothfuss, who with great thanks to him, will allow our world to be based upon his, and the Kingkiller series, and now, we come to extend to you the offer of a lifetime!
This means simply, you are not exploring the world of toliken, or the world of George R.R. Martin in this place, but you are exploring a place unexplored, teeming with new possibility, new advantage, and with this comes all new foes, new allies, new enemies! From the Amyr to the Chandrian, from the halls of the university to the fishing city of Tarbean, all is open, all is unlocked, but you hold the key to it all, there now comes your story, and your adventure!
You problably are forming an idea on your head already; large-scale wars with you leading armies, your hand bringing down punishment to those who defy your word, vengeance. Perhaps you are more daring, and your mind shudders to imagine the consolidation of an empire, your power grooming under your hand, or perhaps your mind is that of a simple, yet detailing one, whereas you see yourself making a family, trying to live the day by day on the slums, where crime is law. No matter what your vision is, no matter how daring, how stupid and how amazing it is, they are all possible. In a world where imagination molds the mystery of this land, you are the one who pulls the veil down.
At our start, you shall be open to explore the country of the commonwealth, all of it's plains, from the singer's hall's of Imre, to the mysterious city of Hallowfell! As time goes on, and we begin to increase in player amount, we'll be unlocking many-a-thing, starting with Celad, and then the Aturan Empire. After all of the nation-states are released, you can expect a new race to tantalize your intreats, along with a brand new world to explore, and dream off, all rich for the taking..
Deep in the four corners, of all towns and villages near. There is tale.. Blue flame. Blue flame engorges the world, blue flame sets all alight, dozens dead, dozens fear. All knew the signs of the Chandrian, though many conflicted. They knew in their hearts that this flame signaled their arrival, why make such a brass move? Why unveil from the stories, and prove their existence as solid, indisputable truth..? No one knew, but they did know the Amyr, their saviors of stories past.. Were none to be found. The gates of the commonwealth began to close, as their borders solidified the mountain passes, the keeps of great: They all closed, and in that moment, the world shuddered. As tales like that in story solidified and a fear burrowed into the world's heart.. and blue flame roared from afar.
Here begins an epic tapestry, the return of the Chandrian, and the Amyr's calling. The world is shaped by the actions of you, the player, and with it comes many things. In the months to come, in the years of this world you shall play. The Chandrian shall overcome the gates of the commonwealth, and entries shall be found, the world at your disposal upon that day. You have the opportunity to follow the Chandrian's will, and be one with Encanis. Or instead, choose to worship Tehlu to your last breath.. All is possible, all shall occur. But as we have said, it is you who shall shape it.
We need willing friends, and aids to make this come to life, and you just might be one of them. We have use for many people, from builders, to graphic artists, to admins and lore masters! Below you will find Applications for Each.. Please, with this. Either post it here, or PM it to me on the MCFORUMS.

[Update] Dec. 24th, 2013:
Crafting Azeroth version 1.0 has been released!
Download Now: CraftingAzeroth-v1.0-release.torrent (6.8 GB)
Crafting Azeroth v1.0 includes over twice the content of the original beta version, including the new continents of Outland, Northrend and the Great Sea, in addition to the original continents of Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. Additionally, many zones that first appeared in the beta version have been re-generated using newly added blocks and features. To learn more about v1.0, you can view screenshots in the updated image gallery, read the included readme file, or explore the interactive map in your browser.
[Update] Jan. 23rd, 2014:
There is a nice Mac OS X installation guide here. Thanks Joshua Reeves!
May. 17th, 2014:
Someone asked me to modify CA-Static and CA-Teleport so they would only affect the Crafting Azeroth map, so I made a separate version of both plugins that checks the world name before applying any changes. You can download them here and here.
About this project:
The Crafting Azeroth project is a full-scale reproduction of the World of Warcraft environment for Minecraft. The creation of the map is heavily automated, assisted by custom software that I have developed. The best way to explore the map is inside Minecraft, but you can also view the map in your browser by clicking the link below:
Screenshots of the map can be seen in the following galleries, including all new screenshots of Outland and Northrend. If you are unfamiliar with World of Warcraft, the "Before and After" gallery will show comparison screenshots between World of Warcraft and Minecraft:
Additional information about the map and many older screenshots are available in this this archived post.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Q. How does the conversion process work?
A. Custom software converts the continents of World of Warcraft into Minecraft blocks using a process known as voxelization. This software converts everything in the game, including all the buildings and natural details, down to the individual tree stump. Once the parameters for the software have been set, the conversion process takes approximately 48 hours and requires no human intervention.
Prior to the conversion process, I needed to match textures from World of Warcraft to the appropriate material in Minecraft. For example, an object with a wooden texture might be converted into wooden planks, while an object with a mossy texture might be converted into mossy cobblestone. I created a special software tool to help perform this assignment, but selecting materials for all 10,000+ textures in the game still required many hours of work.
Q. How large is the world?
A. The current version of the map spans approximately 500 square kilometers and contains over 100 billion blocks. The highest part of the world, the peak of Mt. Hyjal, stands more than a kilometer above sea level. Since the map exceeds the Minecraft height limit, the world had to be divided into seven altitude layers, each connected via a server-side plugin that teleports players as they approach the height limit. To be played locally, the map requires 22 gigabytes of available hard-drive space.
Q. Does the world include underground areas, like dungeons and caves?
A. Yes, the map includes all caves and dungeons that are not part of a separate instance. So, areas like Blackrock Mountain are freely accessible, but dungeons like Blackrock Depths or Molten Core are not. The map also includes many randomly generated caves similar to those found in Minecraft.
Q. Do you plan to convert any other zones, such as Pandaria?
A. Yes, work has already started on Pandaria, but it will take a bit more time before the zone is ready to be released. The conversion process can also be used on dungeons and battlegrounds, so they may appear at a later date, but they are not top priority right now.
Q. Where can I download a copy of the map?
A. The full map is available to download right now, just click the BitTorrent link at the top of this post, or download from this mirror. If you don't want to download the map to your computer, you can explore a read-only version of the map by adding wow.cursecraft.com to your in-game server listing.
(new) Q. I downloaded the map, but now I'm stuck in Outland. What do I do?
A. Entering the Dark Portal in Hellfire Peninsula should return you to the Blasted Lands in Azeroth, just as it does in World of Warcraft. If the portal takes you to the Nether instead, you may not be using the correct plugins. Check the readme file for instructions on how to download and install a Bukkit server with the required plugins. The readme also lists some useful /tp commands for teleporting to key locations.
(new) Q. The game runs really slow when I'm near a jungle. How can I fix this?
A. There are two important things you can do. First, set your graphics in Minecraft to "fast", so that leaf blocks are opaque rather than transparent. Second, make sure that you are running the map on a Bukkit server with CA-Static-1.0 plugin correctly installed. Doing both of these things will greatly improve performance in large jungles and forests and should also help preserve the map from damage.
(new) Q. Can your software convert games other than WoW?
A. The same technique could be used on other games, but it would require a tremendous amount of additional work. The converter would need to be adapted to handle different file formats and then specially configured for the new data set. This is a very time-consuming and technically challenging process, so I have no plans to use the software to convert other games.
Q. Who is involved in this project?
A. The conversion software for this project was developed by Rumsey (RamsesA). Hosting support for the Minecraft server is provided by Cursecraft, and in particular Martin Benjamins (Marlamin), who helps manage the server directly. The mapping software used to generate the Google Maps view of the project was developed by the Minecraft Overviewer team.
Q. Who can I contact if I have more questions?
A. In addition to posting here, you can contact me via [email protected] or Twitter, or send a private message through this website. If I do not respond right away, check if it's something covered in the readme or this FAQ.
