Runecraft is a minecraft server known for its gamemode "Darkworlds survival". Runecraft is the original creator of the darkworlds survival gamemode. Runecraft: Darkworlds is a pre-modern, medieval style, nation building, survival server with a softcore roleplaying element. The softcore roleplaying ensures that players do not build ugly things which are out of place such as pixel art.
Darkworlds survival is a new way of playing survival minecraft. It consists of multiple dimensions, the main ones being The Light World, and The Dark World.
Nature must be preserved here, buildings must be very well crafted, and other resource collecting which changes the natural landscape is prohibited. You may protect your blocks and items in the lightworld with the towny town system. You may create a town/settlement or join one.
PvP is global on the light world, so do not let your guard down.
The dark world does not have as many regulations as the light world, and things such as TnT and fire spread are allowed. It is a dangerous lawless realm of anarchy. The only real rule is not to make it impossible for others to leave by placing or removing blocks, killing is fine.
Please note the map may be reset for version changes, depending how everything goes.
Runecraft is a pay what you want model. Donations are encouraged to pay for server costs if you enjoy your time. Donations go towards the cost of the server, which is expensive. If you do not wish to donate, you are free to play as long as you want.
