Welcome to EXCAVATION, a unique RPG founded with arcade and dungeon crawl aspects. How can these genres have compatibility?
Let's explore.


With dungeons organized into "chains," or strings of several unique dungeons leading to one another, your environment will change drastically upon level completion. Finish five levels of increasingly difficult dungeons to fight the boss of that chain. Of course, dying within one of the dungeons will force you to restart the chain from its first level. Due to this, rage-quitting is quite prominent here and raiders often quit after failing... Don't be one of those raiders! Even experienced players die often, after having completed hundreds of trials.
To compensate, you will always keep your inventory items upon dying. This server may be arcade-based, but there will never be a game over!


EXCAVATION makes traveling from the deepest depths of the underworld... To a sewer infested with the undead... To an ancient mythological maze... All possible and expected. Most items are themed to match the dungeons and areas in which they are obtainable. Score a rare sword and slay your enemies... They will surely know where you found it!


EXCAVATION currency is calculated in coins that may be used to purchase/repair items, rank up, bribe players and infinitely more options. Difficult dungeons will award more coins to raiders in contrast from easier dungeons; challenge yourself to reap the benefits!


You will enter EXCAVATION as a novice, yet may exit as an almighty entity. Each rank upgrade grants players with new perks that make raiding dungeons and ranking up more convenient and sometimes easier.
Ranking here demands time, skill, dedication... And some luck! It may take some players several days to rank up for the first time, while others may rank up twice on their first day of playing. Don't become discouraged; you will eventually be among the greats with hard work and motivation!


After completing a dungeon chain, your inventory will likely be filled with white-colored weapons, some dark green, one or two blue... Maybe purple... In extreme cases, red... Almost never, orange.
Each of these color-coded classes of items have different probabilities of being looted from chests and mobs. Though these items have no value at the shops, they certainly have value among fellow raiders! Sell, trade, compete with or even gift them to those in need... The choice is yours if you strike the luck!


Most have difficulty adjusting to the brutality and unforgivingness of the dungeons, yet those who fight through their early stages of ranking eventually emerge dominant over the elements that once dominated them.  Enthusaists become submerged within EXCAVATION slang, lingo, procedures, memes, and other social perks of this vibrant community.  Novices often receive a beating, but those same novices often grow to deliver it themselves.

Will you become an ace of spades?

Welcome, and happy raiding!

Hey Pat1196. I played the MOSS Dungeon chain and loved it. I really want to play more butt (‿ˠ‿) I've found two things so far that don't work.
1) Ender chests. When i click them it just says "Ender chests have been disabled, because chests cannot be saved or loaded. Ask the admin of this server to look in the console."
2)The iBuy and iSell sign don't work, when i click on them nothing happens.
I found this which might have something to do with it even though it's 1.8 but it is spigot so https://www.spigotmc.org/threads/essentials-signs-not-working.41621/
I am of course on 1.9 as its the only version that works on the server.
please fix this, I really want to play more. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

You'll need to do something along the lines of re-downloading Minecraft or updating your drivers/hardware, for this is not a server-side issue.

To be honest, I thought this server would be pretty bad when I first joined. I only did join because my friend told me to in hopes of talking to the owner about improvments/helping out. After actually giving the server a chance, it's a lot more fun than I expected and now i'm playing it all day... All though I think theres still a ton of room for improvment, the server definitely has a lot of potential and I hope to see that potential fulfilled in the future. :)

Soon. My test server has not been functional lately and I need to get that up and running to try the plugins on the new update. For now, switch your client to 1.7.5 backward compatibility.
This is my favorite server :D can't wait to find out what is in the new shop!

This server is running on 1.6.1. You're probably running 1.5.2, given that it cannot recognize the version of MC. Upgrade to 1.6.1 and try again.

This Server is sooooooooo Awesome and the admin (pat) Is so nice also the server have awesome feature like for example this server aculy has the feeling of your in a rpg like for example me and my friend angello44 made a full on base that looks like the assassins base from assassins creed. then we recruited people so they can help us help other people plus this server isn't like the other server were you die from php and you don't get your stuff back the you get made and leave. we'll this server lets you give people there stuff back and there not messed up were all they want is you to be mad. they acculy want you on there server plus they are kind once again after i'v said a 1,000 times, srry but i truly think this server would be the one for you. @[email protected]
