[1.7.10] Austeros [immersive and mature roleplay survival] [RP] [PvE] [RPG] [PvP] [100+ slots] [DawnFire Realms]

Recommended Posts

DFR Austeros - Banner

DawnFire Realms offers serious, mature roleplay survival in a credible dark fantasy world inspired by the lore of Fall from Heaven II.
After many years of serving our community with vanilla servers, we now announce the launch of a modded server world:

Austeros

We have launched open Beta on: Friday September 25th, 21:00 CEST / 15:00 CET.
Check out our website ... where you can register and apply for the whitelist.

- Austeros runs on 1.7.10 MC and requires a Forge modded client and our core modpack. We support this with TechnicLauncher and two modpack versions: one core and one extended modpack, with grpahical mods that are not necessarily required to play but greatly improve the gameplay experience.
We have carefully selected and configured our mods and generated Austeros using the ClimateControl mod to a world sized 40k*40k. This is what we prepare for you, the DFR community:
- Selected mods match the theme and lore of Fall from Heaven II, the lore we also use for
our vanilla server worlds. The main mods focus on magic and ingenuity:

Thaumcraft 4, Witchery and Tinkers' Construct.

- Roleplay and PvE are our main objectives in this immense, multi-featured world. PvP isn't. Players can freely decide whether they wish their character to engage in PvP or not.
- Austeros is a 'dawn' world themed as a magical world somewhere in Ceridwen's indefinite vault, in between dream and reality, where the 'dreamers' (= players) are in control of their characters immortal lives.
- Three roleplay starting towns to encourage roleplay from the very start. These are characterized by character alignment on the 'Organization scale':
Lawful - Organic - Chaotic. The three towns are called Vedfolnir, Ostara and Nidhogg respectively.

- Themes and styles of starting towns are rather unique for medieval fantasy MC worlds, see pictures in the second post!
- For a divine perspective on Austeros, check our
dynmap.
- A carefully selected plugin set, in-line with the plugin set we use for our vanilla servers. Some of the main plugins: Towny, LWC, GriefPrevention, SignShop, ArmorWeight, Hydrate and DeathControl.
- Character development to enhance the RP-PVE and RPG experience is supported with racial traits of 11 (!) races, defined using RaC + MCMMO permissions, many of our mods special features and ... of course, through roleplay.
- Player loyalty and support (playtime and voting) is rewarded through a trusted rank system using AutoRank and a little in-game cash. Donators are rewarded similarly, plus they are allowed access to additional races for their characters to roleplay.

Mods required to play on Austeros


Our modpack is here: Technicpack - DFR
And we also offer an extended graphics version: Technicpack - DFR Graphics+

 

DawnFire Realms servers have already been up for over 4 years and served thousands of enthusiastic community members worldwide. Our highly customized vanilla world Somnium_Beta is still running today and still home to many of our members. We offer a decent roleplayer base, experienced staff, a lore unique for MineCraft MPS, vanilla and modded gameplay enviroments based on carefully selected and tuned plugins and mods, dedicated custom plugins and, most of all, an energizing and very inspiring community of mature players focussed on realistic immersive roleplay survival.
We are always looking to strengthen our staff team. If you feel you could add to DawnFire Realms, either apply for a position as Aide (builder) or send a pm to a Seraph in case you're interested in helping out with coding, graphics and/or our wiki.

Playing on our vanilla world Somnium doesn't require a whitelist application. If you prefer playing there, don't hesitate to do so. More info can be found here and on our website.

The Praetor of Vednolfir, the honorbale Aela Milanthril, organized a welcoming banquet for all Souls that appeared on Austeros. Many of the lawful inhabitants of Vednolfir attended, and both the Ostari and Nidhoggi sent a serious delegation to represent their people and get acquainted to the folks in the other colonies. Here's a few screenshots of the aftermath.
Note that this Seraph couldn't join in to get some shots of the 10+ characters active in the banquet hall during dinner, sorry!

... and on another roleplay event briefly after the welcoming banquet, Bal the Desolator challenged the Souls of Austeros after a giant crater appeared a couple of leagues north-west of Rost'aura.

We disabled DeathControl as it appeared insufficiently compatible. We replaced it with a combination of tricks that still makes a character respawn in Trenton Memorial Hospital after a knockout, ensures hospitalization costs are charged for character, town and nation, all inventory (inlcuding mod slots!), is kept, and that experience orbs are partially lost. To reduce the potentila experience loss of a knockout, players with Baron and/or a Donator rank are granted the ability to store experience orbs in a bottle, at a small price.

For more detailed info, check the main announcement thread 'Austeros' on our website, which also includes a full changelog since launch.

We introduced 7 new races on Austeros, all based on Fall from Heaven II lore.
Players can now define Peredhil (half-elf), Halfling and Goblin characters when they achieved Viscount rank.
Donators can play as Centaurs, Ormen (lizard-men), Shades or even as a mythical Aifon (merfolk).
Check the main announcement thread, 2nd post, for more info on these new races:

http://dawnfirerealms.net/threads/austeros.1435/#post-9197
We allow character re-roles (2nd characters) as of November 3rd on Austeros. See this thread for the re-role procedure:
http://dawnfirerealms.net/threads/austeros-new-character-re-role-procedure.1566/

 

Note that:

The RacesandClasses plugin is used for Austeros races and we plan to use this, and the additional races, for the next Somnium world (Omega) and Vesperus as well. If you wanna experience how our non-whitelised immersive roleplay survival (vanilla with many customized plugins!) works, join the Somnium Beta community!

      For more information on our servers, network, status, wiki's, launchers, pack pages, and more checkout our server page here:
      http://apocgaming.org/servers
      AGN is a community of gamers for minecraft and other online games founded in 1999 for gaming and setup in 2010 for minecraft servers.
      We host independently from Zilacon's own privately hosted dedicated servers.
      (Bungeecord, Vanilla, & Tekkit Classic are on a paid host. All others are hosted by Zilacon)
      I pride myself in hosting and managing high performance servers with virtually zero down time. All of our servers have deadlock, lag, and crash detection.
      Automated restart scripts, entity clearing/merging, spawn limits, timing adjustments, etc. To make the server run as smooth as possible.
      Our servers normally maintain 19-20 TPS no matter what. If you experience any type of lag with a good ping to the network, please contact us so we can look into it.
      Me and my staff team are available almost 24/7 on our discord server.
      On APOC we have many gameplay styles for you to choose from, along with over a dozen modpacks and servers to play on.
      All of our servers (excluding skyblock modpacks) have all of the features below.

      Server Features:
      Always Online: Dedicated, optimized, built for performance servers since 2010. Our servers are fully automated with almost zero need for human intervention to remain online and running smooth. Multiworld: We have worlds for PVP and PVE. These worlds are Survival (PVE/GriefPrevention Protection), Factions (PVP/Factions Protection), and Towny (PVP/Towny Protection). PVP worlds allow griefing and raiding by following the rules within the factions and towny plugins for war. Survival is PVE only and uses GriefPrevention for its protections. Custom Economy (APOC-Payday): Our economy is like no other, with one giant plugin (APOC-Payday) this plugin offers rewards for over 30 gameplay activities from killing mobs/players to crafting items. It also rewards you for voting with keys/kits to redeem for items and economy/exp/claimblocks. Our plugin also handles sign shops, player plots, automatic ranking, online/login rewards, and much more. Admin & Player Shops: We provide basic vanilla items in the spawn tower for admin shops. And we leave the modded side for players to buy a plot in spawn, create a shop, and select their items and prices for their shop. We encourage a competitive player market on APOC. Our admin shops will not interfere with selling modded items. Custom /help Commands: We have a custom menu of /help commands that explain everything on apoc. How to use our economy, claim systems, worlds, voting, shops, teleportation and homes, and much more. If these help commands cannot answer your questions, staff are available on the servers or on discord. MCMMO & APOC-RPG: All of our servers come equipped with MCMMO and APOC-RPG which adds skills, bonus drops for actions, custom enchanted item drops from mobs, and randomly placed chests or structures with loot inside in the worlds. Bungeecord: Our custom bungeecord server allows clients of any version to connect to our network & servers. Once connected to the server of your choice, you can communicate with everyone from every server, and see everyone who is online in the tab list from all servers. Looking for Staff:

Redeeming keys like Common have a chance to upgrade to Uncommon, and Uncommon to Rare, etc. Vote Keys are issued only for voting for sites, they give 1 EXP Level, $100 Economy, and 10 Claimblocks.

      Hexxit requires you to download the Sounds/Music separately as Mojang has shutdown the resource servers for older minecraft versions.
      Download Resources: http://apocgaming.net/repo/files/147_152_Resources.zip
      This works for all MC versions from 1.2.5 to 1.5.2. Unzip this into your .technic/modpacks/modpack_name/resources folder.

      Hey, I'm new to having an account, but not new to Hexxit and roleplays. It would be nice if I can join a Hexxit roleplay, one that isn't just mindless quests that beg for donations and crate buying. I'd liek to join a roleplay server that has a story to follow, characters, and good roleplay situations. If its for youtube or something I can record, I have a pretty good mic too. So whether its a youtube thing or not please reply on this or message me on discord about it. My Discord is  Red_RiotDS#3827
