In the beginning, there was nothing. Nothing, that is, except the Infinite Ice Plains of the World. The Cinn Reoite lived on it, forces that were so large and cold they could barely move. They held the world in an eternal prison of ice.

Then, a new force was introduced. Called the Soulnatine, it was the exact opposite of the Cinn Reoite. Energetic and warm, it caused the Great Thaw to begin. The Cinn Reoite were forced away from it, and started to Recede. For uncounted Eons, this continued, until the Cinn Reoite were all but gone from the world, and the Infinite Ice Plains had become the Plains of Life.

But the Cinn Reoite were not defeated. They had taken refuge in the ground, deep underneath the surface, deeper even than the burning insides of the World. From there they sought to disrupt the Soulnatine, and destroy the life it was creating. They took some of the life that was spreading over the world, and took its life force away. Then they blew their own force into them, creating humanoid figures that would chase the humans that now walked the earth, giant spiders to jump on them, and explosive plants that would sneak up on them.

The Soulnatine itself, however, could destroy some of these with the force of its light. The plants, needing Light to survive even though they had become evil, where unaffected, though they could not be released into the world when the Light shone. The spiders, with their Eight Eyes, were blinded by the light, so that they could not see whom they were to attack. Their hard exoskeleton protected them from the burning force of the light. The Zombies and Skeletons, however, taken from underground, where sensitive to the light, and would burn up.

The Cinn Reoite also tried to make bacteria evil, so that they could spread on the world and destroy life from within. Here they failed, however, as the bacteria formed great clumps of slime that could only hop.

To offer protection even at night, the Soulnatine made an island, with a temple on it. It was protected from the mobs by a Magical barrier, and all inside was safe. This place was called the Houses of the Holy.

This is my entry to the Server spawn contest. Its title is (as some will be able to guess) derived from a song of Led Zeppelin. It will include the following
  • Spawnpoint (almost finished)
  • Rules (finished, to be filled in at will)
  • Land claiming instructions
  • Shops (run by server)
  • Maze(for amusement)
  • Parkour(amusement)
  • Nether portal hub (to be linked at will)
  • Train station
  • Grinders
That's it for now. If anyone has ideas, they're welcome to tell me.

I also welcome any (constructive) feedback you are willing to give.

Furthermore I'm looking for someone to take pictures

Additional Notes

I have now added the temporary download link. The proper link will be added when it is finished. By all means explore the build, but do not use this for anything public without my express permission. This may only be used for The PMC spawn, until further notice.

Any constructive feedback is welcome!

Update: the download file is now no longer available, since the rights have gone to the PMC user Dreamr. I cannot and will not stop those who have already downloaded this build from using it, but no more downloads from now on.
CreditThanks to the maker of WorldEdit, I couldn't have done most of this otherwise.

If you rendered these builds with some sort of program or with shaders ingame, you would get many views, all these builds are elegant and I love the colour scheme you use, expecially the blues, and the water!

If it's just how to use Chunky, this guide is really good! If it's setting it up you have problems with, I can't help. :P
