High above the surface, where the razor-thin wind whips through meteor dust, there hangs a little construct. It bobs across the threshold of sky and void, its ancient consoles pockmarked by a thousands years of debris. Here at the precipice, into the tatters of the Shade, the deities have sent a chosen few. They are our frontlines in the fight against oblivion, and they call themselves Sky Rising…

Current announcement: Now we're trying out modded Minecraft. Come one, come all!


Welcome to Sky Rising’s info thread! Originally formed to conduct plugin tests, this little station at the edge of space was fortunate enough to attract a wonderful group of players. Now that we’ve stabilized (well, more or less...), we’ve opened our doors to the FR community at large! Here’s a taste of life on the edge of oblivion:

gdP2Ovq.png Player-Directed Updates
Enjoy a constant stream of tests, additions, and screwball event ideas! The server stays true to its roots by actively translating feedback to features, so feel free to speak up--we’re always looking for new experiments.
A Greylist Everyone can Enjoy
Traditional whitelists and greylists, though useful for maintaining server health, can be unfortunately exclusionary. Here, you’ll have full access to events, tools, and permissions from the start! Your only roadblock is the vastness of the void (and your starting lack of transport), but the community can ferry you across without staff intervention.

2mErdVF.png_ Custom Code
This server runs a cutting-edge fork of EverydayMiracles (the plugin it was originally created to test) configured especially for the void. Chat with your FR deity, or throw your hat in with the Shade, all the while accepting and completing quests to earn godly boons. Or just enjoy the nifty flight nametag!
Voidfront Property
Every player gets their own island (plus complimentary elytra), with full WorldGuard protection from y=0 to 256, for a protected zone of over 70k blocks. You are free to build beyond your property into “public domain,” or purchase additional protected islands using points earned through quests and events. Pictured island belongs to chairsquid!

d0OVLjP.png A Concerningly Intelligent Server
From the aggressively streamlined Spigot implementation, to our opportunistic restart system, to the player-activated event network and beyond, we’re doing our best to squeeze every iota of performance and intelligence from our humble li’l server. It's only getting smarter...
Gods, Goons, Events, and Adventure
This is only a brief introduction to what you'll find on the server. With a boatload of events, a welcoming community, a stable (and growing) plugin list, and a story that's just getting started, we're sure that there's something here for everyone. So come on in and pull up a chunk of island! We've got a planet to protect, after all.

Recommended Mods

Because our server is mostly void (Nether and End generate normally), you may find that it runs a bit faster than a normal world. I personally found the FPS gain sufficient to run a shader pack, though I can't say what (if any) gain you'll experience on your own machine. That being said, here is a list of clientside mods that I've found useful on Sky Rising:


**list cleared for 1.11, will come back as mods update**

Lore & Headcannons

Contribute to our official server lore! A running doc of finished documents can be found here:

This list is primarily for short headcannons about how the particulars of life on Sky Rising works. Feel free to ping me with a new one!

  • The name of the ship at spawn is Experiencing A Significant Gravitas Shortfall, after the Culture ship of the same name.
  • Sornieth has a massive debris field around it, a result of early clashes between deities. These ore-rich asteroids are occasionally towed in by the station using ~magic~ (and some are sentient?).
  • The station itself was once largely automated, and seems to be a result of Second Age engineering. Bits of it have literally floated off with time, due to weakening magical tethers
  • The station and ship are both kept afloat by harvesting atmospheric magic.
  • Players are, according to lore, particularly powerful and/or beloved exalted dragons.
  • Earth dragons are particularly uncomfortable up in the Sky Rising colony, at least at first (various)
  • Each island contains a tiny shard of the Pillar. The chunk's Shade-warding magic helps to protect its occupants. (Aradium)

1pm, Sunday
8pm, Wednesday

Peak Pinglist
This pinglist will be used when server population peaks, and can be used by any player while the online population is greater than 5--if you like to play in a group, consider being added!

Keeping the Lights On

This server has flexy RAM space, which means that I can keep it going for a long while on my own funds, though the slot count would be restrictive as anything. In order to fund additional space, I have opened a Patreon Page specifically for supporting the server. There are some neat rewards available to Patrons, as always.

Of course, not everyone has access to Paypal, or money to spare! Honestly just caring about the server enough to read this paragraph means a ton to me, so thank you for that, but if you'd like to get involved:


  1. Link to us from somewhere, anywhere! The banners in the previous post can be stuck wherever you like. You could even carry them in your signature for a bit--plenty of people never read FRD, and we won't be able to reach them without your help!
  2. Post on the thread! Keeping us visible is a huge deal.
  3. Use the suggestion box. Keeping the ideas flowing is critical to making this server as fun as possible.
  4. Get in-game! Our community is definitely the best thing about this server, so contributing to it--by helping new people, hosting events (like Spleef and Light Tag), making beautiful builds--anything that improves the community helps the server. So don't sweat it if you can't donate money! Time is just as important!

Thank you so much for helping out our community! Here, have a sleepy kitten:

@Oranitha the general pinglist is pretty much all the pinglists, right? If not then add me to the peak pinglist(I might not be able to go on a lot when it peaks since it's usually 7-8 in the morning when it peaks) and the event pinglist.
