What is FantasyCraft?
Well, it's really simple. FantasyCraft is a collaboration of various people and resources in an effort to bring a new type of Minecraft Beta Server into existance. In short, it is a community in the making. As of September 20th, 2011, the server isn't yet open to the public-- but our development team is working hard to get it ready!
The main idea of FantasyCraft is to create a community, a place where everyone knows each other (or if they don't, they're invited to get to know each other), and roleplay together as a whole. We aim to have different quests, different playable races, dungeons, and the potential capability to even build your own nation from the barren rocks or water or trees of any area you please. We will enforce fair economy (That includes free market) and a balance of power. Staff won't be 'super-powerful' ingame... we'll have to work just as hard as you will!
Not only will FantasyCraft be a community centred around roleplay and quests, it will be non-linear. That is, you can follow the storyline and enjoy every twist and turn it takes you on, or go off on your own to bring something new to the server. There will be eight major cities, two for each main race, and twelve 'minor' villages for the various people belonging to each race.
We will have five to ten mobs unique to FantasyCraft; these mobs are as much a part of the storyline as the cities are. There will be NPC's, the ability to level up, PvP arenas, a custom texture pack, and the coup de grace, custom blocks with custom features. Not to mention that there will be an official FantasyCraft website complete with launcher!
You will need to download some things to enjoy all of FantasyCraft's beautiful experiences, but it is more than worth it. (Thankfully, FantasyCraft will have its own loader, to help load the mods and/or clients needed. Think of Spoutcraft, except specifically for FantasyCraft!)
If you want to join a community, wherein anything is possible... then you should join FantasyCraft as soon as it is open to the public. Watch out, Minecraft-- FantasyCraft is coming to town.
