The King of Shadows is an epic Minecraft adventure with a quest driven storyline that has you battling to save the continent of Faerun and stop the King of Shadows. Set in the lands of Faerun it has you battling the odds to stop the King of Shadows and his undead armies from conquering the lands of Faerun and beyond.

King Azoun IV has rewarded you for recovering the Golden Chalice of Kurast and in turn saving the life of his daughter with a castle and lands in the north east of Faerun known as Winterkeep. Upon arriving at your new home you are met by an emissary sent by Open Lord: Piergeiron the Paladinson who informs you that the High Lords of Waterdeep need your help to defeat the King of Shadows and save Faerun.

In order to defeat the King of Shadows and save Faerun you will need to persuade the many different regions of Faerun to join together and fight under the one banner. The main storyline quests revolve around you doing this and culminate in you entering the fortress of The King of Shadows to find and defeat him. As you do this you will encounter in excess of 175 quests.

  • Epic Scenery - custom made map with biomes of breath taking beauty.
  • Amazing Cities & Towns - every building has been hand furnished by a team of dedicated builders.
  • And a whole lot more!

You can find out a lot more on our website http://www.drobnovia.com so come and have a look and see for yourself!


From the bitter, windswept steppes of the Endless Waste to the storm-lashed cliffs of the Sword Coast stretches a wide, wild land of shining kingdoms and primal wilderness, Faerun is only one continent of the world known as Toril. Other lands lie in distant corners of the world, but Faerun is the centre of it all, the crossroads and crux upon which all else turns. Dozens of nations, hundreds of city-states, and countless tribes, villages, and settlements dot its expanse.

The continent of Faerun is a landmass of approximately nine and a half million square miles, located mainly in the northern hemisphere of the world of Toril. Sub-arctic extremes chill its northern reaches, where ice sheets like the Great Glacier dominate the landscape in blinding white. To the south are the equatorial jungles of Chult and the tropical coasts of Halruaa. It’s bordered on the west by the Trackless Sea and on the east by the Endless Wastes and the Hordelands that separate it from Kara-Tur.



Faerun is an open land full of kingdoms and empires, large and small, and scattered city-states and villages struggling to make their way in a landscape that can be unforgiving wilderness one mile and cosmopolitan city the next.

Countless millions of humans, elves, dwarves, halflings, and other sentient beings call Faerun home. It is a land of magic and intrigue, cruel violence and divine compassion, where gods have ascended and died, and millennia of warfare and conquests have shaped dozens of unique cultures.

undefined

In order to get the best possible experience from playing The King of Shadows the following are the key points to note:
  • Resource Pack - use the resource pack included in the download (when downloaded from our site)
  • Single/Multi Player - ensure cheats are enabled if playing a single game and all players are OP'd if playing in multi-player
  • Game Settings - when you press the button at the start it sets all of these for you

undefined

We use an altered version of Conquest and the adventure has been built around this. It might look okay in some places with alternative resource/texture packs but if you want to experience the adventure as intended we suggest you use this resource pack. If you got the map from our site the resource pack is contained in the download, otherwise you can download the resource pack from our download page.

To see what the adventure looks like with this resource/texture pack we suggest you watch the trailer video at the top of this posting.


undefined

To allow all of the features in the game to work, portals, signs etc you will need to be either opped if playing a multi-player game or switch to LAN and cheats enabled if playing a single player game. If you don't do this the quest system and other key features of the map will not work. In other words, if you don't do this you might as well stop playing the adventure!

A large amount of people have very kindly given us permission to use their work in our map and we would like to express our sincerest thanks to each and every one of them for doing so.

I just noticed on the forums that the "Sigil of Fear" was delayed until 2019. Bummer. But at least I can re-play all the other maps until then :D

Honestly, this is the most amazing map I have ever played. The visuals are stunning, the storyline is amazing, the audio is well selected, and it comes together perfectly. This deserves much more popularity then what it already haves compared to maps that can be made within half an hour. Awesome map, please continue with the same quality! You have earned one more diamond.
Thanks for the kind words they are appreciated!

Hi, what kind of program did you do this kind of from above? Overview from above and it's like a map in hand.

Not sure I understand what you are asking but if you are asking how we made the map of Faerun then we used UnMined to create the original image.

through which program a screenshot is made?

www.drobnovia.com/images/faerun.jpg
It isn't a screenshot...it is a map generated via UnMined and then edited via Photoshop to have all of the locations and such. At least I think that is what you were asking. :P

Well, I have yet to unite the first region but so far I am loving this map! I would like to report a bug however- I'll do this on the Drobnovian forums when I remember, but I had a glitch where I got the 'Tax the People' quest twice in Waterdeep, and when I tried to choose a thing it gave me a cheat count and after 3 tries sent me to a room where the developers yelled at me for cheating.

I am honestly very happy that you've added in a anti-cheat system into this map. I personally am guilty of using spectator mode to try and figure out things in both Drob. Knights 1 and 2, but I've only ever used it to try and figure out where NPC's or entrances to tombs are when I'm severely confused. As atonement, I'm currently refusing to use any teleporters in Faerun... Let's see how well that goes.

There are no bugs at all with the main storyline quests of this we are very sure as they have been thoroughly tested however due to the size of the map there is an issue with the redstone lagging which is the cause of what you described.

Good to hear that you are enjoying the map though :)

We set it to 100% as everything has been done. It's just a case of adding some final changes to spelling and the like now and then release it at the end of the month.

Do you have any idea what the size of the map will be once you upload it? Your previous projects tended to be around 200+ Megabytes and this world is much larger than those.
  • Azounstone

  • June 26, 2017, 3:26 pm
Hi,

Including the resource pack the maps are as follows (approx):

  1. Drobnovian Knights I - 250MB
  2. The Golden Chalice of Kurast - 260MB
  3. The King of Shadows - 650MB
Suffice to say this adventure is a lot bigger than our previous ones which is a good and bad thing depending upon how a persons pc is etc.
Even if it is a tad bit bigger it will be well worth it if you enjoy immersing yourself into the world and the story! :) I may be a bit biased though!
