Event Description

Hello, Realms adventurers! Many of you may recall the mysterious lairs full of undead discovered under Chimeron last August. The Militia has evidence suggesting the culprit fled to uncharted islands off the southern coast of the Realms.

This is off the beaten path for most adventurers, so I have secured passage for 3 parties of up to 8 adventurers to explore different areas of the island group in exchange for assistance with a minor task at each destination. One party will join an explorer who is hunting for a lost artifact in the ocean, another will help the local trade merchants' guild investigate a disruption to trade from a nearby island colony, and the third party will venture out to an island that isn't known to be inhabited on behalf of a group of settlers looking for a new home.

All three parties will set sail on February 6th. If you're interested in joining any of these expeditions, please inform me of your intent before the end of January. We'll want to sort out who among you are joining each expedition in advance. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly.

Sir Saka Keeneye
Warlord of Chimeron

For those who haven't played at a prior RealmsCraft quest, our goal is for first-time players and Minecraft veterans alike to have a fun time playing through the quest! This is a free, virtual, unofficial Realms event using the Java version of Minecraft, and Discord for voice chat. We have 3 loaner accounts for folks who don't have a copy of the game yet! While there is no event fee, you will need access to a computer to play.

We've built an IC Realms quest for 6-8 players at a time, and we've also designed classes of custom PC and NPC abilities to bring Minecraft gameplay a little closer to the Realms' system. We'll open the server in advance so you can set up your character, test out controls, try the custom Realms player abilities, fight some basic monsters (or each other) in the practice arena, and run through the tutorial we've set up for folks who are new to Minecraft.

This quest should take about an hour and a half to complete, but that is likely to vary with your party's size and experience with Realms quests and playing games like Minecraft. You'll have a maximum of two hours, beginning at your designated start time.

Questing Parties:
12pm-2pm: Available
3pm-5pm: Available
6pm-8pm: Available

Once we have questing parties established, you'll all get to decide together which party is going on each part of the expedition over on the RealmsCraft Discord server. We'll facilitate that in-character discussion starting in February.

Rules Changes and Notes

This is being run in Minecraft. We've set it up so there are a lot of similarities to the way our Rules work, but it's also pretty different. Details will be explained in the tutorial areas we've set up on the server, and we'll also be able to answer any questions you may have on the RealmsCraft Discord server!

Other Notes

You'll be playing in adventure mode, meaning you won't be able to use most of the digging, crafting, and building parts of the standard Minecraft game. (Otherwise, you'd be able to dig through obstacles or build a bridge over a pit of monsters to fight. What's the fun in that?) You can expect most of the staples of a good Realms quest, however!

If you have any questions, please contact Pat Bobell via Discord, Facebook Messenger, or email so he can help you out!
