Rise of the Kronarch - Now accepting applications!
“I remember when the snow began to fall in the South… Our land of Amaranth, once a lush and vibrant forest stretching from sea to sea, had dawned a new and sinister icy-edge. Every year hence it has only grown worse, closer and closer to suffocating our homeland. Alongside the creeping snow also comes a new and strange race of humanoids called the Kronarch. Initial contact was but a brief meeting of elders, but the Kronarch seemed insistent on the growth of their… civilization. We will continue to try and establish contact and create a truce to hold the death of our forests at-bay, but I fear our efforts are in vain. At times, even though undesirable, war is a necessary evil. We have lit the bonfires of our temples and offer sacrifices daily to the forest God, Turin, but we fear his alliance with our people is weakening with every passing day. Has Turin forsaken our people for these cold-hearted beasts, or is he simply attending other affairs… Time will only tell. Gods save us.”
~ Benzant, Second of the Order of Druids of Amaranth.
This is my second massive online world (first was Tumbleweed), and so much has changed with the addition of Creative Mode and new host options. I'm excited to announce that Rise of the Kronarch, a tribal PvP, RPG server is finally here. Looking forward to making it into something great.
Just a warning, I've attempted to wrap a complex set of rules and story around the typical Minecraft mechanics - so, if you're put-off by an in-depth rules system, detailed buy/sell mechanics, or adhering to specific rules "just because"... please please move on.
I'm looking for some mature, no BS Minecrafters to join me in this adventure. Ideally, I'd like a crew of age 18+ players but will slide the scale downward if I don't get enough applicants. After a week-or-so grace period, I'll send out notifications to three Amaranth and three Kronarch tribesman to begin the war!
To get started, download and read the rules. Be sure to take a look at the linked Buy/Sell Rates Excel doc (found within the rules) as well to get a feel for how the Serenity store works.
