I am looking for some creative builders to assist in building a lightly modded, adventure/survival map!
Basic Map Information:
A perfect being of immense power created the world, and at first, it was likewise flawless, but its perfection did not last. Whether by the Creator’s intent, subsequent abandonment, or unforeseen tragedy, the world has become flawed, but it could be far worse.
The World is No Longer Relevant
The world’s denizens have managed to overcome their ennui, and in the dawn of a new age, have begun to expand beyond the world, exploring and settling new worlds and dimensions beyond their plane.
The deities of the world are truly supreme beings, present in all places at once, with nigh-limitless power to bring to bear, and a sense of restraint most in their position would lack.
Magic is Mundane
Mortals have no magic, it is solely the domain of the world’s deities and lesser supernatural entities.
Only Humans exist in the world.
This world used to be perfect. The world was magnificent and truly perfect. Alamakaya, the Life Shaper deity, created a flawless planet for the gods. He shaped life into many amazing creations with a gentle vision for the planet. Then the war came. The humans on the planet started feuding about money, power, and other trivial things. People started growing angry. War broke out and decimated the population, leaving only small city states scattered across the planet. People were scared to leave the protection of their walls. Only in large, heavily armed groups would venture forth. The only others were the nomads, those that wandered in small numbers or even one person. There were bandits too of course. There was even the rare hermit, usually well hidden and behind heavily fortified shelters. They sustain themselves on the land; hunting, farming, raiding, and scavenging. Ruins were everywhere, magnificent cities and towns that were beautiful, where life was friendly and living was easy. Now they lie and burnt out shells of emptiness, devoid of life.
In the past few years, things had become more optimistic, peaceful, and the people lived less in fear, but more in positive optimism. Hope had returned. But that was not to last. A sickness began creeping in from the eastern marshes. A corruption that corrupted the land and spawned monsters that craved blood of humanity. The souls of the dead were dragged from the afterlife and corrupted to serve an unknown master with a sinister intent. Spiders grew from annoyances, to dangerous. Ocean creatures rose from the depths. Extradimensional entities clawed their way into this world. People became terrified as danger stalked the land. Explosive creatures from myth were spotted in the wild. And even people and animals became corrupted when they were slain. Certain people even began to use magic, previously only seen in deities and higher powers. The most terrifying menace in the minds of the people were dragons. They were seen only far from cities, at night, so people were not even sure they existed, but the fear was ever present.
There is hope that exists far from civilization that was not even known at the time. A group of nomads were visited by Alamakaya and bestowed incredible powers that were channeled from a shrine that was built hidden from sight and heavily guarded by magical metal golems. This shrine gave them the ability to shape incredible weapons and armor that were created with the energy collected from defeated servants of the dark. They gained the ability to create magical brews from ingredients gathered from defeated enemies and the lands. They also gained the ability to teleport between waystones that were built across the lands and then activated by them. But the most powerful and important gift, was immortality. When one of the nomads died, they were resurrected back at the shrine with new bodies and in perfect health. These are the individuals who are given abilities to beat back the evil. They are hope.
