(Now includes Pics) Designing New MC Forum Thread; Need Help.

Post by TheFrazzledKid on Wed Feb 15, 2012 10:51 am

Good evening;
So I've decided that for our new map, we'll have a new thread on the Minecraft Forums.
Which is why I need your help;

I need SOMEone (*cough* Faelar/Blaze/Jocc *cough*) to sum up EVERYthing that's happened on the Dawn Of Time, RP and Community wise, from humble beginning to the second cataclysm, (Feel free to separate the two).
However, I believe this needs to be a short sum-up, not a 20 page epic novel. (Which I'm proud to say it could be).

So basically, I'd like:
1. A detailed paragraph or two explaining the Lore;
2. A sum-up of everything that's happened since the beginning including events, characters and towns (if important);
3. Possible glimpse of the future (Outline of what's to come, probably including the EnderDragon Temples);
4. Anything else you want to include.

Thanks. :D

EDIT:
To make things clear, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] thread is the one we're leaving behind.
I will post a new, updated one.

Free Piczzz:
(Pretty basic, done in 5 minutes)

*panicks and copypastes every single lore thread into notepad documents*

Is this necessary?

I'd like a sum up, not every little detail. :P
Even a time-line of the important events you can remember would do.
It isn't a must-have, but I think it's something we'd like to show on the new thread.

EDIT:
This site is staying.
The Dawnoftime Thread on the MineCraft Forums is going, and I'll be posting a new one.

I'll be happy to do the graphical design as soon as we get some good images of our new map, and the exact details of what we want on the thread.

All was well, Frazz left, Scope became co-owner, everyone died. The end.

Any objections? (I'll see what I can do in all seriousness)

Also Blaze;
Feel free to make a banner/picture of a destroyed part of our current map, with RIP on it.
As a memorial.

(I changed my mind, I did it now!)

The Dawn of Time..The dawn of a new civilization. Recovering from a rapture known to many as the first cataclysm, society began to rebuild from the ashes. With the stout hearts and creative minds of a group of people, Dawnbay, the first city, was born. Soon, society began to reform and regrow, and with it, new towns and cities sprung up from the ground.

But soon, a terrible, otherwordly evil came to undo all of life and it's creations. Hordes of undead swept accross the land, and a war of life and death raged constantly. Innocents perished, Heroes arose and fell along with the terrible creatures they fought, and new discoveries were made. Although the outcome appeared bleak at times, civilization continued to fight back, for the light shines the brightest in the darkest times.

Soon, however, the great evil that had plagued the lands and corrupted the hearts of countless unleashed the full might of his armies, and cities everywhere were strangled in a second cataclysm. Cities fell one by one, and villages were crushed. At the very end, Dawnbay, the place where it all began, was also the place that civilization as it was known once again fell.

Society would retreat to hide in the mountains of the north, for lives cannot be rebuilt like structures can, but a new life would come with the next dawn, and The Dawn of Time Society would return once again to rebuild, recreate, and recover, for they lived in a world bathed in the light of creation- a world in their hands.

Not a bad entry. ;D
I still want to see what Scope, and anyone else who wants to test out their literacy skills, has to offer.

Heh. I won't try I don't think, Fae's pretty good though, in the Loreboard, some nice pieces of literature there. Good work Fae, :) I don't know where we'd be without ya for our Server's Lore.

Mhmm, Very good point, he holds the server together, as do you and Frazz. But all the admins do really.

I'm pretty sure Fae knows much more about the DoT lore than any of us do, unless you're asking for reviews from the players or something...

Closing these forums for a new map?
Lolno :P

The forum thread however could use a rework and if you posted a newer one it would attract more attention having less posts ;D

I feel a timeline coming on :D

Fae's sum up of the Lore is perfect, and I'm using it.
But if anyone wants to write a time-line (Listing dates towns were built, dates of major battles, etc) that'd be nice.
Really, anything creative to do with the Dawn Of Time would be amazing. XD

Also:

I don't get why everyone thinks I want to close these forums. XD
I specifically made sure to point to the MINECRAFT FORUMS thread. XD

The End challenge I'll leave Fae to announce when he feels is appropriate through RP, and after that an explanation should probably be put on the thread as there are some people who will just ignore these forums and just get on to play without having a lot of an idea about what's going on. (Speaking of the End challenge, we'll have to have a discussion about the logistics of how it will work whilst you build spawn and have lots of fun worldguarding the all the areas. [Also, was there a definitive answer as to whether worldguard could block Ender Pearl teleportation? Or if some mod could be found/made that did?])

There currently isn't a lot of player built stuff on the new map (Excluding the stuff I've done) to talk about, so town info and such is currently... unavailable, though it would be possible to write something up about the friendly competition or W/E between New Cerberus and Spawn Town at the beginning.

A Spoilered list of all the mods and Admins would probably be a nice idea too, and a list of the current ranks we have so that people won't be confused by all the name colours.

A section with numerous links to these forums, likely for Role Play stuff, and any other important threads we make/have, just to send more people this way to get more involved with the community.

A timeline of events could be done, though exact dates I'm not sure we have (Were I to make a timeline, I'd get the dates from Fae's Lore Board posts and convert them into a system that Fae approves/,makes up/RPifies for dates IC, and use that to arrange everything.

I'd also leave posting it until the new map is actually up. That way we don't have people come here expecting to play on the new map, to be told that it is merely a temp map ATM, and it may give us some time to set some stuff up before an influx of people arrives, who we will have to introduce to our server and community, and ensure they follow rules and such - even the 'unofficial' ones.


And Blaze, I may take some screenshots of the New Map when I'm done with things/upload the version to be hosted to Frazz and send them to do what you want with them. Will likely have a different sort of look to the other pictures - different TP as well as some Shaders running - but I'll try to find some good ones (Though that will be interesting with not a lot to take Screenshots of yet).

I searched for 20 minutes and said "f*** it" and just added it to the blacklist in essentials, but of course, essentials sucks, and I can't find a plugin to disable enderpearls. *looks around* HEY KAIRUS, NEED YOU.

indeed post the banner size, i have access to photoshop, id also recomend that anyone who has an impressive build on the server should post a screenshot so people can shoop some stuff together, also if a few people could do that i'd be eternally grateful and this is a long sentence that only barely makes sense.
