This was a commisioned build for a faction server as their spawn, it is custom terrain mergin into normal minecraft terrain and was build by the Athion Network Build Team.

Join us:


A smoky smog cascades down the pointed peaks Smältur Öden like the tendrils of smoke that billow from the nostrils of a great winged beast. The plumes of black death pour over the craggy facets and rippling cobblestones of the infernal factory’s foundation. It was only then, as licks of gray-white dance along the ground and dissipate, that a voice dripping of molten fury and passion booms out through the darkness.

“It was on these foul stones that our fathers, and our father’s fathers fought and perished. It is the blood of our ancestors that lay the mortar for the slabs we stand upon here today..”

Droplets of glistening, molten rock sweat from splits in the rock faces, oozing down the walls only to seep into the stones once again. The dull clanging of the great gears that adorn the structure seem to seize up the landscape and viciously jostle it, sending rippling, rolling tremors across the latitudes. Each turn of the cogs, a clap of divine thunder beating down from the plateau which Smältur Öden sits.

“.. in all of our posturing and all of our pretenses. Smältur Öden is the center of the world, brethren. Within, the means to travel to the four corners of our Realm.”

The laden clouds overhead swirl and intermingle with the issuance of black soot and ash from the smokestacks of Smältur Öden, intertwining and becoming indistinguishable. Winds roil overhead, whipping across the plains that surround the great factory’s perch. Bright bolts of blue-hued electricity shoot through the cumulus growths, occasionally launching a precision strike at the tipped pinnacles of the curled spines surrounding the cathedral to brimstone and fire.

“You stand at the gates to glory... “

Armored feet stamp the ground rhythmically like the ticking of a metronome, and each collective footfall rattles ringlet curls of chain or platelets of mail. The clattering of metal instruments of war and destruction tremble with anticipation in the hands of individuals eager to lead a charge on the world in the names of their clans and their houses, their banners and standards.

“Do not hesitate at the threshold to your conquest of that glory. It is here, upon this hearth, that the true rulers of the Realm will make themselves known. Step forward and claim the gods as your witnesses while you lay the land to siege. Perhaps, then, one of you will claim Smältur Öden as your castle and its plateau as your throne.”

This was a low complexity build out for a Factions spawn client we did.  It wasn't really super in depth mainly one central castle with two interior rooms and a drop.  But we like to show our some love to the work we do so you guys get to enjoy it as well.  Even if we can't supply download links sometimes.

Hmmmm.... I think I agree with you that this is a simplistic build. However, I feel that it is very compact, there's a lot of features put into that one focussed piece of architecture, which is in contrast to the desolate landscape. In one way, it almost reminds me of a crouching animal, ready to release all the pent up energy within it.

If you guys could build something that showed the leaping animal, I'd be really impressed :)

The IP for our server is, but unfortunatly, I think this was a BT only build, made as a commission. I don't think players can view it at this time.

We will get some shader shots of the build out shortly... as this is one of our more simple designed builds there isnt much more to see outside what the video shows. It should be live on the sever we made it for soon once we see it is live we can link you this build to have a look if we haven't put up any new screenshots
