Ashes of Minecraft - An Ashes themed Minecraft Server, online now!
Ashes of Minecraft
Server Address: ashesofminecraft.beast.mc
Server Version : v1.10.2
Ashes of Minecraft offers a glimpse of what the Ashes of Creation world will look like.
In AoM, players can work together to build up their factions. Developing their small village into a sprawling Metropolis through the teamwork of Adventurers and Artisans.
What are Adventurers? What are Artisans? Well, I'm glad I asked!
Adventurers explore the world, searching the many caves and caverns that litter San'dal. By killing monsters and looting treasures, adventurers can bring vast riches to their respective factions. Only by contributing to a faction can it evolve, increasing its territory and power.
Artisans are the crafters of San'dal, by invoking the powers of creation and worldedit, Artisans can build the most fantastical of Metropolises! Of course, Artisans don't start the game with such OP powers, only by increasing the level of their faction may they gain access, and only within their faction's city.
Both Adventurers and Artisans alike can play AoM normally within their faction's Zone of Influence. Inside of their Zone of Influence, players may build freeholds with whatever resources they can harvest from within - players cannot take from outside of their ZOI.
Okay, so everything is pointing towards levelling my faction, how do I do that? Well! I'm glad I asked!
Levelling a faction is easy; for the small price off $5.9- *AHK!* "Ouch!" *COUGH* "Stop!" *POW*
Uhh... Sorry about that, now where was I? Ah! Levelling a faction, it's easy, simply complete quests for the various villagers within your city, contribute resources, or... more, possibly, we're still thinking of things.
What can I expect from AoM in the future?
We plan on changing from 'faction based' to 'node based', in the future we would like to see players able to explore the world, come across a village/node and be able to develop it into a Metropolis. This process would be automatic, and players would be able to fight against each other in territorial wars and such. Unfortunately, mod development takes time. Fortunately, we have a lot of time! Until 2019/2020 in fact.
I don't like Minecraft, is there any way I can get involved?
Yes! There are a bunch of different ways to get involved, we're in need of writers to create stories and quests, artists for textures, web art, more? and fan art is always welcome! Programmers will probably be needed, I want to finish design and also get the server playing as described above before starting active development. When I say we're in need, I don't mean that we're recruiting, just that there's more than enough space for the whole community to use the server as a medium to bring their thoughts and ideas to life - this is a community project, not a traditional Minecraft server.
Everyone is welcome to join the discord and share ideas, even if it's just to speculate how things will work in Ashes of Creation.

Any information related to the server, including the mods you'll need, is most up to date on the discord!Darckwar has given us an incredible gift to start off the server, check out his Dwarven Stronghold, Dolmiir, below!
Massive thanks to Darckwar for this, it's just amazing.
Update! The port is a WIP, we've also started work on the treasury and the first portal. Not only that but we've made good progress in the quests and npcs within the dwarven city, Dolmiir. It will act as an introduction and tutorial for players. Take a look!
And another look at the front of Dolmiir.
