You can visit the project on the Mysidia server at mysidiaserver.us.to
Once you're there use /warp Cipher to get there.

About
Cipher was a project that I've had in mind ever since the beginning of my adventure map, which is almost a year now I believe. Originally I never planned on making a castle or any kind of architectural building in it. The concept was that it's an ethereal higher dimensional world where you travel to and wind up in the council of the unity. The idea was to have 9 pillars with floor art representing them, which I stuck with. During creation of LastNorth I drew out a sketch of this project and I ended up falling in love with the concept and ideas that were spewing out of me.
I started the project on October 4th and was hoping to finish it at the very end of that month. Although, due to severe server issues, I lost about 70% of my progress with the project and was forced to start over the things that were lost. Despite the irritation with that, and my frustration with it is inevitable, I'm glad I had the opportunity to start anew and improve the project. There were many times that I was worried I wouldn't finish it due to this problem, though I ended up pushing in more energy towards it.
Being that there are 9 pillars, they each represent a different god or goddess of the unity. In order: Satus, Dimidium, Hora, Concordia, Xenos, Pondero, Animus, Alitheia, Desino. Each god represents a different aspect of reality and the human nature(i.e: Life, Time, Knowledge). The dragon serpent is a "soul serpent" that travels from realm to realm gathering the souls of deceased individuals.
The name 'Cipher' sort of came to me loosely. It took a while before I was decided on that name, but right away I figured I'd end up using it anyway because I myself personally like the word a lot. If you're curious as to what the word means, it essentially means nothing, or something with absolutely no value. The idea with using this name is that coming to this "higher dimensional" land, Zen(the main character) is no longer bound to the trivial ignorance and stress of the normal world. His mind is set free and his understanding is absolute. 'Nothing' being absolute and 'whole', there is not a single meandering thought in Zen's mind.

Lore
"Upon the doors, that in which time has been sown, leads a path into my shadow.
The shadow calling me, the sacred half of my self, it beckons me to open these doors to a kingdom.
With luminescent light transcending into new forms of waves, they cascade from my perception into a new form of
understanding. This land, a place that does not seem imaginable by a simple mind, but yet I had always imagined myself as the simple type. There are dismal feelings left inside me that are becoming so evanescent because of all the light in this world piercing into me. It is as if I am entirely something else, an entirely different entity than I have ever imagined.
With confidence held firm, I make certain which path I may lead, in hopes to rid this dying world of its chaos.
To make amends with the gods that I have once fell so blindly to, I am to prove to them the soul essence of my potential. Although, the understanding of this is already with them, and for this being true it was inevitable that I'd end up here. Here, in the kingdom of cipher, where I will travel through the portal onward to meetings in Epsilon. "

Realy well designed. I searched for a long time for a project like this, I never expected
to find something as great as this project.. It's a great world to explore, especialy with
the song ''Panty & Stocking OST - Fallen angel feat. Aimee B'', it realy feels like a higher
world. With great landscaping, great custom trees and greatly designed buildings and
amazing art.

Breathtaking! You are extremely talented. The colors, the mixture of styles, the flow of the patterns and architectural styles, the shape of the land... seriously, even the shadows are mesmerizing! Thank you for making this downloadable - especially since you say it took a lot longer than you anticipated. I'm going to walk around in it and ooh and ahh in person now. :) (ps, thanks for introducing me to Thomas Bergersen's music too!)

You are the minecraft equivalent of Leonardo Da Vinci. I get so reflective when I see your storylines that I get a insane urge to write a book on Minecraft Philosophy. Then, I download the map and play on it and have fun and I forget the storyline entirely. But thats just me. You are a awe-inspiring builder, and I hope you keep on making these beautiful maps. There are some people I am impressed with, but you have a beautiful style that is completely your own. Keep up the good...no, AWESOME work.

Thank you for such a positive comment, it's really sweet. Da Vinci is a great master and I once had an enlightening dream with the man. It was remarkable. I'm set out on making a very large project now actually and I'm not sure when it will be finished, but it will be eventually.
