The Exiles of Elysia: Rise of the San'lorai

"For ten thousand years the San'lorai ruled, but from the fog the Far Ones came.
Standing afore an age of everlasting dark, the Highborn sacrificed themselves to save the flames."

Interested? Leave a comment and diamond!


This is a remake of the first and most ambitious map I created over a decade ago. Developed as part of the supplementary material for my novel The Exiles of Elysia: Knightfall, this map takes place four hundred years prior to the events of the book.

Inspired by Dark Souls, Elden Ring, and King's Field.

This map contains a full story campaign that details the efforts of Emon Peregrine, last Prince of the ancient San'lorai, in his quest to reclaim the sacred valley of Lynwen and bring his dying, scattered people salvation - or vengeance
. The map is enormous and lovingly handcrafted, encompassing a gigantic and breathtaking mountain range with ancient forests, crumbling ruins, and foreboding citadels to explore. Lay claim to unique equipment blessed with the holy Light, cursed with the forbidden arte of Lifestealing, or enchanted with other magical effects. There are dungeons to conquer that are guarded by fallen heroes, hundreds of secrets to uncover, and an expansive story arc with optional quests, including scripted encounters and multiple cinematic endings based on your choices in the map!

This map is designed for solo or co-op play; no mods are required!

Stay tuned for additional updates - new areas, music, datapack updates, a hardcore mode, a speedrun challenge, and more!

Map Features

Sounds like a pretty serious teleport bug - probably an issue with the entity not despawning. I will definitely look into it.

Fix to teleport bug
Try this command:

/fill 29 6 -80 29 15 -80 minecraft:air replace

This will permanently disable the Sanctuary teleport, but is definitely better than this softlock you are experiencing.

So sorry!

So i just did that, and yeah i was unstuck and still finished the map. Finished in 5~6 hours, solid map with great story, dynamic and combat. A great map to explore and watch the work you put into it. For a map that is technically 12 years old it still is a great map

Thank you so much! I really appreciate your feedback and interest.

I am pushing out an update soon to fix the teleport functions. Using scoreboard objectives, no one should ever have to deal with the issue you alerted me to.

If you would like, send me a message with an NPC, item, decor, or flavor concept and I will try to incorporate it into the map as an Easter egg.

Where do I put the torches? It says on stone or wooden braziers, but I don't know what block that is.

Oh, also, I accidentally put an item in the new pots/jars and can't get them back. I had to restart from the beginning since it was my weapon. Might want to check into it so others don't run into the same problem.

Thank you so much for this information. While you can break pots with a bow, the newest version of the map fixes the issue you ran into (and now even has rewards for dispatching them).

Braziers are the various Fence posts. They are typically found in dark areas or near Monster Spawners.

I greatly appreciate your feedback!

My sincerest thanks! I typically update the map each holiday. Lore addition and datapack optimization is up next.

New Game +
If you ever want an additional challenge, by defeating the tutorial boss you unlock "the third path." You only have one attempt, so make it count!
