  The Year is 175 of the Imperial Era. The Empires of Vaeltaja and Iustia have co-existed in an uneasy peace for the past decade, when all of a sudden the Vaeltajan Empire goes silent... no ships leave the continent, nor do any people, nor does any sound. The Iustian Empire sends a military force to "investigate," and they too are never heard from again. The continent is deemed unsafe, and all travel too and fro is forbidden. But you were never one to follow the rules, and so under the cover of night you set sail for the forbidden continent, and set foot in the capital city of the Vaeltajan Empire: The Grand City of Jolhaim.

  JOLHAIM is an open world RPG that tasks the player with a single goal: Discover what happened to the people of the continent. Clues are hidden throughout the map, alongside legendary loot, formidable dungeons, and monstrous enemies. All interiors are decorated and filled with loot to aid the player in their quest. Discover the lore behind the land and its peoples, from the Jovish to the Shi, and even prominent individuals who once roamed the land.

  The Map will include:
  • 4 Cities/Towns (Including Jolhaim)
  • Several villages dotting the landscape
  • An assortment of Dungeons with varying degrees of difficulty, covering multiple genres
  • Tonnes of unique items/loot
  • Custom landscapes
  • A colossal amount of lore on the land's history and cultures
  • A deep, enticing mystery that will keep players entertained for hours!

  The map will not hold your hand. It will hand you a book, suggesting where to begin looking, and from there everything you do is up to you. Want to investigate the mystery? Go right ahead. Want to go straight to the final boss with nothing but a steak? That's allowed! Want to completely ignore the main story and forge your own adventure? Why not!?

  Jolhaim is far from complete, and with the current lack of map making tools due to the 1.13 overhaul this may not change for a while. Until it is done, I will be updating this page monthly at the very least to inform you guys on how the project is going. I'm only one man, and building most of this by hand with a few tools to aid me. Due to this, if you are a skilled builder and want to help, send me a message and we can sort something out!

  If you REALLY want to try out some of what this map has to offer, check out https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/king-sigurd-s-castle/ to play through just one of the dozens of dungeons JOLHAIM will have to offer!

  To keep even more up to date with the development of Jolhaim, I suggest you follow my twitter https://twitter.com/TheReve16614482 . Going to try post any and all updates there while still maintaining my monthly update's here.

Finally, this is all being done for free, and will continue to remain free. In order to support me, consider donating to my Patreon with this link: https://www.patreon.com/The_Revenant . this will include monthly update vlogs, with more content on the way. Once again, JOLHAIM IS AND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN FREE FOR EVERYONE, this is only for those who are keen on supporting me through the development process.

  -9/10 Districts Completed
  -1 More left!
-More work on side quests
-Subway Completed
-All city infrastructure completed
-Began work on making dungeons easier to find

  Finals season is approaching lads, so I apologize in advance but things might slow down a wee bit. that being said, the densest part of the entire map is complete! That does not include loot and books and whatnot, but nonetheless this is a massive milestone! hopefully everything else runs just as smoothly!

  All that's left is the legal district, which is where the Cathedral is. That will only consist of 3 buildings, but they are huge, so we'll see how that goes. nonetheless, the city will be done sometime this year, and mu God am I excited!

  Unfortunately, I think that's all for this month. Until next time, have a great one lads! Take care!
