I am repeating myself on this one, just reboot the server. The daily player count is like 30 at best, so like 5 to 6 players on a time... I don't think many people would complain if we just wiped the server and started all over.

While people are complaining about there not being a lot of players online anymore... I say look on the bright side. There are plenty of abandoned builds, and I say...

Part 2: Rise and Fall of the Ancients

Age II: Age of Life

Following the departure of the pantheon, the dragons kept watch over the lands of Elysium. They watched over the fauna as it grew, the seas that were soon filled with life and the elves who still had much to learn. For over a millennium much did not change, the elves slowly expanded and the dragons kept observing as was their duty. But this all came to change with the formation of a new race, Humans. This new young race proved themselves to be quite resourceful, and began to mimic the advancement of the elves. The Ancient Elves, seeing the humans as a possible threat to their growing power, decided to destroy the remnants of the humans.

The Dragons, seeing the hostilities between the two races, intervened between them. They told the elves to back down and gave a select group of humans some of their magical abilities in order to even the playing field between the humans and elves. This would prove to be the Dragon Race's downfall however, for while at first their plan had succeeded in keeping the elves and humans from destroying one another, it had not however stopped the human's greed. The Human Tribes soon began to hunt down the dragons. While the dragons were indeed very powerful, they were few and far between unlike the humans who numbered in the millions.

One by one, the Dragons were killed for their stores of magic. Their powers soon absorbed by aspiring human magi, who became a race all their own. Meanwhile, the remaining energy from the dragons not absorbed corrupted the land around the dead beasts. Those who died fighting the dragons rose up as undead and what wasn't absorbed by the creatures seeped into the earth itself and created the Dwarven race. As for those around the dead dragon that were neither dead or dirt, they too were affected by the Dragon's energy. Some lucky humans turned into magi while others had their skins fall from their bodies, creating the first of the withered skeletons. The same was said for animals nearby as well, with many of the first nekos being created due to the slaughter of dragons.

As more and more dragons fell, the Dragons begged the elves for aid in fighting the humans. The Elves, still angry over the Dragon's decision to allow the humans to grow, ignored their plead. The Ancient Elves saw this as a fitting end for the annoying race. As the second age came to a close the last dragon was finally slain. Meanwhile the Elves, using the chaos the Humans caused had united and formed an empire under the First Elf Nithral across the entirety of Elysium. The Dwarves meanwhile began to slowly build a Kingdom under the very earth the Humans and Elves stood while the Nekos slowly began to expand their populations across the woodlands of Elysium.

Age III: Age of Ancients

The beginning of the third age began with warfare. The Human tribes, having finished off the dragons decided to band together once more to defeat their long time foe, the ancient elves. What soon followed was a series of wars between the two races. At first, the humans led by their powerful magi were able to slowly push the elves back. But for every elf killed, hundreds of humans died and unlike the Dragons, the elves had a population to match their prowess. Over the next few centuries, the human tribes would be eradicated by the elves and the few humans who survived either enslaved or scattered into the wilderness.

With the Human Tribes now defeated and the Dragons extinct, the Elves were left as the sole rulers of Elysium. Under the leadership of Nithral, what followed became known as the golden age of Elysium. For over one thousand years the Elves prospered and expanded their power. They built great cities, artifacts and much more. Many of the ancient artifacts found today was created during this period of time. But all good things have to come to an end eventually.

According to legend, Eldari, the creator of the Elves, returned to Elysium to help her creations once more. During this time she and Nithral started an affair, much to the Elven Queen's jealousy. It is unknown if Eldari truly did return and started an affair with Nithral or if it was simply an Elven Maid or someone else, but what is known is the Queen's response. Jealous of her Husband's new found love, the Queen in her rage responded by destroying the very veil that kept the Ortheel from entering Elysium. With the Veil now torn asunder, the First Darkness War began.

From the start of the war it was a losing battle, the Elves under Nithral's leadership charged headfirst to stop the threat his late wife unleashed upon Elysium. But the Elves alone weren't enough to stop the Darkness. Eventually, with no other option given, Nithral began requesting aid from the other "lesser" races of Elysium to come and help fight the Darkness that threatened them all. The Humans and Magi while still hostile towards the elves agreed to come to their aid in order to stop this common foe. The Dwarves, who had only recently become known to the elves, came to aid the Elves with the allure of riches. And finally the Nekos, who were more like animals at this time were soon conscripted by the elves, taught how to speak in the common tongue and given equipment to fight.

The combined might of the four races were able to halt the Ortheel's advance for a time, but even their combined power soon began to fail. Slowly Ortheel began to either kill the troops under Nithral or for some unlucky souls, corrupt them. It was during this time that Humans and Elves were turned into blood sucking vampires under Ortheel's thrall, as well as Humans transformed with half wolf half human hybrids to fight in his armies.

Soon the dawn of the last day of the third age came, and Nithral, against the words of his advisers, left their war encampment alone. It is unknown what happened next, but what is known is that shortly following his departure, Nithral and Ortheel battled. Eventually Nithral, in one last desperate move was able to entrap the darkness into his body along with Ortheel, forever imprisoning the Dark God inside himself. With the powers of light and darkness he created a tomb around himself in which he remained inside for many millennia to come.

Meanwhile, with the darkness now defeated, Ortheel's thralls scattered as their master's thoughts no longer controlled them. The war was over, but Elysium was devastated. The Ancient Elves, once numbering in billions were now left with only a few thousand left and the other allied races fared not much better. In the end, the Ancient Empire were no more, the elves that remained along with the humans splintered off creating their own factions. Meanwhile the Dwarves retreated back to their mountains to recuperate and return to their families. And so as the races began to work on rebuilding what was lost, the sun set upon the Age of Ancients.

A lot of people have been trying to figure out what exactly is the lore and story of Elysium. Due to the fact that a lot of players only know bits and pieces of it many tend to believe there is barely any, but this is actually not true. While there have been debates on what is considered as part of the lore and what isn't, there has always been a sort of basic outline for players to follow long before the lore team became a thing. I do not know if many of the fact are still true or have been changed to better suit the server currently or the lore team's preferences, but here the Lore of Elysium!.

The Rundown

Before we begin to delve into the lore of Elysium, there are a few pointers that need to be discussed.
  • First, there are currently at least 7 ages in Elysium's canon, although many tend to agree from my understanding that there are actually 8 ages. The reason for there being 8 and not 7 ages is many players believe the release of Fei should be counted as the start of a new age, and so many tend to refer to events between December 2014 - December 2016 (irl) as the 7th age and all events in 2017 and beyond as part of the 8th age.
  • Due to the work done by the Lore team and me being not really active in late 2017 until recently much of the lore here may have been changed or altered. Currently this is the most up to date lore I can come up with and so I will be using the information I know for now. If there are any dependencies please let me know.

Part 1: Beginnings

Age I: Age of Dragons

Many debate on how Elysium came to existence, some say god like cat people created the stars from their milk and worlds from their kibble, others say a person much like ourselves named Sam-moo created Elysium out of boredom, but one of the most widely accepted stories is the story described to us by the Ancient Elves. Not to be mistaken with the elves of today, the Ancient Elves, the ancestors of today's elves, were much different. The Ancient Elves where slightly taller, their skin much paler, their hair always blond or white and they lived immortal lives.

The Ancient Elves believed that Elysium was created to be a Paradise, a crown jewel for their gods. First a giant ball of rock was formed and with what remained around the world shaped into Dragons. The dragons soon aided the gods in created the rest of the world, from the highest mountains to the deepest ravines. Elves however were handmade by Eldari, the Goddess of light.

But not all were invited in the creation of this new world. The Pantheon, in fear of what they may do, tried to keep the world as secret from the Shadow Gods. But they soon found this new world and became jealous of what the others created. So they decided to create an entity of their own which would rival their fellow god's children, and so a creature without mass, devoid of light and full of hatred was born. It attacked the newly formed elves and dragons with great savagery. The other gods tried their best to keep their creation safe but it seemed that this new entity couldn't be stopped. The gods pleaded with the shadow gods, and satisfied with their victory, the dark gods tried to tame their newly formed pet, but they soon came to find they couldn't control the creature, and it soon turned on them. The entity, now calling itself Ityaak Ortheel, declared that it had ascended to godhood and the Gods, seeing no other recourse used the remains of their powers to create a veil of stars and sky around Elysium, forever keeping the new god of the void away from Elysium.

With the World, now filled with life, water, mountains, fields, sky and stars all complete, the pantheon saw their mission complete and disappeared back into the cosmos leaving behind the Elves and Dragons as Elysium's caretakers.

To re-iterated I still say the server should be rebooted. Perhaps not to 1.13 (Because that is a flaming trashcan and a half) and before you say it, yes servers like Hypixel are already in 1.13 but they also have an active staff with most of them specialized in a specific part of the server. Got a plugin problem, we have staff who work with just plugins etc. Elysium does not have the resources to deal with all the issues that would come with 1.13 nor is it small enough where you only need to worry about the server being effective for 10 to 20 people at a time (or maybe it is now, idk anymore).

What I would suggest is again, restart the entire server and rebrand it in a way. New Map, New lore perhaps? With a new map we can actually clean up the lore and stuff, add the good stuff from the previous lore and throw out the bad type deal. Theres a lot of stuff we can do with the new map that we couldn't before. Again just a suggestion ;)

While I do not believe this needs to be a custom race since "split souls" seems like less of a race and more of an affliction I do like this concept a lot and it is very intriguing to read, you have my approval for sure at the very least  ;D

So we should go and promote the server and tell people to come join when there is very little to offer? Nothing outside of lying will get people to join. The economy doesn't function, the only rps offered are tavern rps and group rps amongst friends and there hasn't been an event for quite some time outside of a few small ones usually taking place on the holidays.

I would suggest before promoting the server we at least fix the many issues plaguing it or else lose even more players in the process. The last thing we need to do is go out and mass advert it only for the server to get the reputation of "That s***ty server where rp goes to die" and then have no players join no matter what.


Don't build a house on a broken foundation.

As much as people don't think I am active (Which is true) I do still try to keep an eye on this server just because of the history and fun times I've had on it. But with recent active player numbers getting closer and closer to the single digits and the community, it's economy, nations, and more now stagnate or still in decline I think it is time we consider the red button, one I hate to press but one I think this server needs during these dark times.

That button being the reboot button.

The server is old and full of history but sadly its current status is bleak at best, Elysium needs to re-brand itself, to create a new slate if its to have even a chance to survive past this year. At the current pace this server is going it seems like to me it is filled with nothing but children and pedophiles who stalk them... I ask my fellow Elysians, who in their right mind would want to join a server with that as their current reputation. What I think we need to do in order to possibly help grow the community once more is as follows...

A. Reboot the server and start on a fresh slate, possibly even change to a new more reliable host (We can downsize as well due to our low numbers for the time being as well)

B. Create a new discord, the discord, while a pain in the arse was a very helpful tool for many Elysians to ask for help and communicate with their friends and admins outside of Elysium.

C. Wipe the lore clean and create new lore for Elysium. We can use ideas from the lore we currently have but the current lore is no buano. Custom lore will also need to be more heavily regulated and should confirm to the official lore NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

D. The Economy (If the server is rebooted) will have a fresh start, but we will need to make sure it stays healthy and not go into a flaming trash can like before. A good way to keep the economy rolling is sadly allowing pvp into the server. While many do not like the addition of pvp into the server, pvp and the items destroyed in the ensuing fight or taken in the process helps keep many server economies in minecraft alive. Everyone hates getting their items taken but now it gives incentive for them to buy more items as well as gives a purpose to people working as blacksmiths or other specialties. This of course will not totally fix the economy, but another suggestion would be to also keep chest shops or any variants of the plugin off the server. I love chest shops but they truly killed the economy, to require players to actively seek out other players for items is a great way to keep the economy running.

I have other ideas I would like to bring up but currently have to get back to my job, I will add more ideas later.

Suggestions / Re: Viaversions! Elysium to work on newer versions!
« on: June 17, 2018, 08:02:14 pm »
I see a few flaws with this idea...

A. You can switch versions already, I know you said it would help bring people from 1.12 to the server but not really. People who want to play on the server with 1.12 want the features of 1.12 included as well.

B. The amount of plugins on Elysium is quite a lot and they have conflicted with a lot of different plugins in the past. Adding another plugin might bring similar results which means it might not be compatible to the server, or worse could lead to unforeseen consequences (Like when the sign trading plugin nearly destroyed the Elysium economy).

C. Why? It takes 5 seconds to switch from 1.11.2 to 1.12... And laziness isn't an excuse!
