You can visit the project on the Mysidia server at mysidiaserver.us.to
Once you're there use /warp Cipher to get there.

About
Cipher was a project that I've had in mind ever since the beginning of my adventure map, which is almost a year now I believe. Originally I never planned on making a castle or any kind of architectural building in it. The concept was that it's an ethereal higher dimensional world where you travel to and wind up in the council of the unity. The idea was to have 9 pillars with floor art representing them, which I stuck with. During creation of LastNorth I drew out a sketch of this project and I ended up falling in love with the concept and ideas that were spewing out of me.
I started the project on October 4th and was hoping to finish it at the very end of that month. Although, due to severe server issues, I lost about 70% of my progress with the project and was forced to start over the things that were lost. Despite the irritation with that, and my frustration with it is inevitable, I'm glad I had the opportunity to start anew and improve the project. There were many times that I was worried I wouldn't finish it due to this problem, though I ended up pushing in more energy towards it.
Being that there are 9 pillars, they each represent a different god or goddess of the unity. In order: Satus, Dimidium, Hora, Concordia, Xenos, Pondero, Animus, Alitheia, Desino. Each god represents a different aspect of reality and the human nature(i.e: Life, Time, Knowledge). The dragon serpent is a "soul serpent" that travels from realm to realm gathering the souls of deceased individuals.
The name 'Cipher' sort of came to me loosely. It took a while before I was decided on that name, but right away I figured I'd end up using it anyway because I myself personally like the word a lot. If you're curious as to what the word means, it essentially means nothing, or something with absolutely no value. The idea with using this name is that coming to this "higher dimensional" land, Zen(the main character) is no longer bound to the trivial ignorance and stress of the normal world. His mind is set free and his understanding is absolute. 'Nothing' being absolute and 'whole', there is not a single meandering thought in Zen's mind.

Lore
"Upon the doors, that in which time has been sown, leads a path into my shadow.
The shadow calling me, the sacred half of my self, it beckons me to open these doors to a kingdom.
With luminescent light transcending into new forms of waves, they cascade from my perception into a new form of
understanding. This land, a place that does not seem imaginable by a simple mind, but yet I had always imagined myself as the simple type. There are dismal feelings left inside me that are becoming so evanescent because of all the light in this world piercing into me. It is as if I am entirely something else, an entirely different entity than I have ever imagined.
With confidence held firm, I make certain which path I may lead, in hopes to rid this dying world of its chaos.
To make amends with the gods that I have once fell so blindly to, I am to prove to them the soul essence of my potential. Although, the understanding of this is already with them, and for this being true it was inevitable that I'd end up here. Here, in the kingdom of cipher, where I will travel through the portal onward to meetings in Epsilon. "

You are the minecraft equivalent of Leonardo Da Vinci. I get so reflective when I see your storylines that I get a insane urge to write a book on Minecraft Philosophy. Then, I download the map and play on it and have fun and I forget the storyline entirely. But thats just me. You are a awe-inspiring builder, and I hope you keep on making these beautiful maps. There are some people I am impressed with, but you have a beautiful style that is completely your own. Keep up the good...no, AWESOME work.

every time I see one of your builds (if they can still be called that), my mindbackflips and tries to squirm out of my ears, the way it does when I think about impossible things, like the size of the universe or the properties of a higgs-particle. it is not so much the sheer creativity and power of mind required to create something like this that impresses me (another of those extreme understatements), it is the sheer time, patience and concentration that do. You are the Queen of the Legendary Builders, by a huge amount. it is actually quite ironic that, while guys are those with the reputation for crazy gaming, and then a girl becomes the minecraft builder queen. though it is not so much gaming what you are doing. it is art. I hereby declare minecraft builds of this level to be counted among art, and among the same levels as Rembrandt, van Ghogh, Picasso and Dhali.
I can ramble on like this forever, but that won't add anything.
Oh, before I forget, DIAMOND

Thanks techpotato, I'm just trying to keep focus and get it all finished now. I still probably have a long way to go but I'm more than half way through at least. The plan is: 2 more projects and fixing/adding to the already created parts of the map. Redstone and things like that will take up most of the time.

I cannot explain the beauty and essence inside this architecture. Your creation is truly beautiful. It gives off that smooth, mythical, inner-light vibe. I love it and can't wait to see more of your work. I honestly think you are the best minecraft architecture in the game. Because you make stuff big and bulky, but not jagged or rough, but bright, and smooth, and where the patterns fit. I see you said you sketched some of the stuff... What's your process in making ideas or building your creations? Because I can tell you didn't just rush into this randomly placing blocks everywhere.

Thank you for such a warm comment, it's really flattering. I've had about 90% of the ideas and projects laid out before I even began to draft out things and write down more ideas for them. It all started with loose ideas floating around in my head about a story. This story changed drastically over the months, but I started to develop a certain plot and direction early on and so that set the score for what I'd later create. It never defined how I'd create it though, it just sort of defined what purpose things would have. Usually I try to remember whatever pops up in my head. I often close my eyes, and get a lot of ideas that way. For Cipher, that is exactly the case. I was just closing my eyes and had a few images pop up and went straight for my pencil to draw it out. I came up with a very rough outline for Cipher, then wrote down things I'd like to put in. The list included amethyst crystals, snowflakes, and other things like that. I later drew out a better draft of it just to think out some details and patterns, but still the draft and the finished result are so very different. Basically, I just draw it out for proportion and shape. I ended up having to tone it down with Cipher due to the height limit, and by that I mean it was meant to be much taller looking. I try not to over think it at all. A lot of the ideas I get are very spontaneous, but end up connecting to the original purpose. Emotionally, it's very important that you're in the right state of mind to do any form of expression, art, craft, whatever. I let myself do what I want to do, I'm as real as I let myself be, but at the same time I hold myself back to follow the intentions of the storyline.

I tried to swallow this and accept it, but i had to trew it up again, cause no human other that you, the creator, can swallow this and acept it as it is, its too awesome and amazing, no words describe this build!
