Hey guys! My name is Matt (IGN: _AMPLiFY) and I am the Director and Founder of the Realm of Alaria or RoA for short. RoA is a new server that is being developed by a dedicated and motivated group of players. (Quick plug: if you want to join our team just PM me).

Technically speaking, RoA will not be the name of the server, but rather the name of the world. We have just been using that name util we can come up with a general server name. The reason for this is for future proofing; should we ever change maps I want the lore to make sense.

Our goal for RoA is to make it a RP server like no other. The map will be fully custom excluding the wild which will just be normally generated terrain. We will have special events, an in-depth lore, and a community driven story line. I am very excited about this project and cannot wait to see where it bring us!

The Development Approach
The way I decided to attack this massive RP project is to break the team down into sections. A Lore team, a building team, a coding team, a marketing team, and a whitelist team. Later we will introduce a GM team. This way I can address specific people on our Dev team and get the information I need to know.

The lore team is currently working on a basic story for the server and an idea for new potential players on how things will run. The coding team is working on two custom plugins that will be specifically for RoA. The marketing team is idling right now until we get more information down. The whitelist team will work with the marketing team because they will need to know where people are applying for the server once it is live.

And of course the building team! You didn't think I forgot about them did you? :p We run the build team a little bit differently. Instead of having an open server where the builders run a muck we run off a build ticket system. I will post a topic on our forums describing what we need. Then players can sign up for the builds, build them in SP and then make a schematic.

We do have a private server for development. We will use it mostly for plugin config and testing and for our veteran builders. Once we have all the parts of the map we will put them together there too.

The Future
We plan to just continue as we are. I hope to have the server live in 3-4 weeks. I know that is a push but I think it will be done, but we will need to work hard.
