Although I do not know what this would be called, I'm in need of some staff who are interested in helping with the startup of a unique SMP-like gamemode, in which you take the more recent semi-vanilla survival multiplayer servers and add an interesting twist on it. This twist being that of an ancient being working towards helping the members of the server. It may sound weird to you currently, but I can put it into better writing over discord.
If you are interested, please add me over discord and we can discuss further, thank you!
Have a great day!
In addition, this server needs multiple people for the start-up team, and if you are uncomfortable in adding me on discord, you could fill out this application here and I will consider inviting you to the start-up team!
Basically, my idea is that there is a higher power on one of the more recent SMP server builds
This higher power is not a player on the server, more-so a part of the start-up team.
No matter who this higher power is, they will build totems around the world in which can be used to collect needed resources.
An example of this would be a shrine-like build surrounded by netherrack in which a chest filled with netherwart can be found. Every so often, without warning, this totem could be refilled with netherwart, the amount being of the "higher" player's choosing.
This is still a very heavy work in progress (WIP) in which can be expanded upon, changed and even reworked entirely with the same sort of idea in mind.
