Hollow World is a Mature, Medieval Fantasy Roleplay server. Our world and lore take inspiration from Medieval Fantasy settings such as Lord of the Rings, Games of Thrones and The Elder Scrolls. Our community values aesthetics and adventure, things that shatter immersion violently are avoided. First, your name and skin. If your name is Cat_Rapist_69 and you wear a blue creeper skin at all times, it ruins the illusion that we are exploring and building together as pilgrims in an unknown world.
If you constantly demand that we materialize blocks and teleport you wherever you want to go - once again, this destroys the metaphor of the game and is frowned upon. Hollow World is about discovering the world and staking out a place in it, not subjugating nature to our demands. Our monuments stand as achievements in a natural world , not as transformative elements in making nature our tool. Notch has created a terrain generator that provides wonder before gameplay. As such, any actions that are either malevolent or negligent which decimate the terrain and its appearance will not be allowed.
For conduct, one is expected to bring with them a mature attitude, a sense of humour and behave as if the server were a cooperative mission for adventure, not a vehicle for hoarding. Obviously every player has a right to things he (or she) has mined or gathered, but if the cooperative spirit is lacking and generosity and magnanimity are not present and should that player breach our rules repeatedly or severely enough they will be removed from the server to protect the rest of the community.
We have a mature and competent admin staff who play in survival mode just like any other player. We garauntee the fair treatment of every player on our server and players shall not be harassed or abused. Our community actively participated in the development of our server through an advisory council.
We aim to offer an enjoyable playing experience for a wide variety of players - ranging from the most enthousiatic and godmod avoiding roleplayer to the casual farmer that just tends his crops and greets travelers that pass through his farm. Roleplay is encouraged however and when dealing with other players you are expected to try and enhance their roleplay and help their immersion, rather than hinder it.
We are first and foremost a survival server. Players gather their own resources for their projects, although creative mode is used on occasion to build central infrastructure essential to the functioning of the server. We encourage people to show off their creativity and building skills, but we also encourage people to build with purpose whilst interacting with others in a suitable medieval setting. All builds should fit with the theme and style of our server and have an appropriate backstory. When a new player comes to visit your town we don't want them to just walk into a square cobblestone castle without a story. We want them to be in awe of your building style (whatever that may be) and to be fascinated by the stories surrounding your castle.
Medieval Fantasy is a rather broad term and can be interpreted in various ways. We don't want to be too restrictive on what players build and it's not easy to write down a definitive list of rules. You can be sure however that things that are considered modern are frowned upon. Just because it says medieval however, doesn't mean that you can't build roman or greek styled buildings. These are things that fit perfectly within a medieval fantasy setting.
We offer players a variety of worlds to play in, all connected through lore and accesible through a central portal world. We have a custom generated world with realistic landmasses, mountains that go upto max world height and custom biomes. We offer a pvp and non-pvp world for resource gathering that are expanded and reset at regular intervals.
