Playing over 3 years and cant thank the staff enough for making it so fun. Deviously enjoyable. Keep coming back for the community.


lovely place, the people are nice, very user friendly. I am able to play on here with my friend and I enjoy just being able to explore and talk to other people on the server


I've had a great time on this server, and it's the only server I can't not come back to!


Good server, is fun, cool staff, nice buildings, has lore


Great server with a great community. I’ve been a part of it for over 3 years now and I look forward to playing more in the future. There are a bunch of custom plugins, structures, and features that enhance quality of life and enjoyment while maintaining that Vanilla Minecraft feel. There’s even an ongoing lore plotline involving multiple dimensions and interdimensional beings, with tons of things to explore! Highly recommend, check it out.


Great server. I've been a part of it for over 3 years now and it has a wonderful community, dedicated staff team, cool custom features, and a fascinating ongoing lore plotline. Check it out!
