Storyline Questing

Starting this weekend, the first quests will be implemented, setting the stage for future quest-lines and expanding the world beyond the realm of survival.  

New and existing players will quest to learn how the Realm of Ravenkraft was created and what challenges await them.  Puzzles, stories, characters and cities will make Ravenkraft come to life!

World Instancing

Dungeon Instancing is defined as:
  • A special area, typically a dungeon, that generates a new copy of the location for each group, or for certain number of players, that enters the area
Many players may be familiar 
with this concept from games such as Guild Wars and World or Warcraft.  We are able to instance almost any world to include parts of our very own Ravenkraft overworld as well as adventure maps and other types commonly found available for download in Minecraft communities.
Currently Ikin and Rohal are entire worlds still under construction by our creator players.  These will be available in coming months

Here are some examples of things you can expect to see in the instances:
Server Speed Boost

Today, the server has been migrated to new hardware at our  hosting company.  Basically, I asked about performance upgrades and they asked if we wanted to be moved to a less populated housing for our data.  I am very hopeful that we will now be able to provide a lag free environment as the server slots fill over the next few weeks.

Server Ranking - we need your help!

Ok... so here is how rankings work on

Each month, every servers' vote tally is reset to zero, giving servers small and large alike opportunity to get a little time on the top of the lists.  The more votes Ravenkraft gets in the beginning of the month, the better our ranking and the more people will see our server.  This will mean an influx of new players.

Please help but up-voting the server here.  Every day that you vote will help keep us on the top of the list.

In addition to MCSL, we will also be submitting a listing on Reddit.  If you have an account, please let us have your upboats here.

Player Promotions

With our new ranking system, many people instantly gained rank they had earned according to the new ranks, roles and rewards rules.  This weekend, we will be giving out those rewards as well as any  newly earned ranks for those who have earned them.

Nickel9, is earning the rank of creator for his hard work on the Ikin project.  Congrats, Nickel!

The PVP world

Starting tomorrow, new players not added to the white-list will still be able to join the server but will restricted to another world.  Zeal is another world entirely and players there will not be subject to rules concerning property or PvP.  They will however, be subject to the servers decency rules.  You can read more about this on the revised rules page.
