Intro
This is a role-playing server, not a survival one or a single-player one. You will be expected to work together, form communities and interact with others, not just wander off into the wilderness .
Welcome to the Broken Worlds; a dedicated fantasy-inspired role-playing server whose community has stuck together for over 6 years! Over this time, we have changed maps as the main storylines come to a close, but are now focusing on a much more longer-term map!
In the beginning, we were heavily inspired by Dwarf Fortress. As years have gone by, we have slowly drifted away from that, but our current world is much more DF-inspired than previous maps.
We are a vanilla server, with a few plugins. Search for 'BWRP' on Technic and select the vanilla option.
We have the SkillAPI plugin! Classes and professions are available, with a number of different skills. The system is still in progress, so some updates may happen.

The World
The End
We have custom-written lore, put together by our team of Storytellers (our moderators) and Community Managers, custom-made maps and a rich backstory of both regions and individuals in this world. All of this lore is often put forward by the players, working it into their backstories of their characters.
With a world crumbling to an end at his feet, Beor Fellhammer, First and Last Dwarven God of the Second Pantheon, cradles in his palm his cherished homeland.
On every side is the end of all things, and so Beor closes his hands around his homeland and plunges into the void between worlds: a fate long thought of as death to a deity.
He finds that he and his homeland are safe from the rapture but oh, so alone. Growing concerned that his dwarves will live out their lives in his hands, he forges a mighty blessing of stone to keep them frozen in time until a better fate awaits them.
Ages pass in the void, Beor striding on, intent on finding a new realm. On occasion, he crosses through doorways into other worlds, old and new and plain and exciting but none of them suit his needs. Sometimes, he will pass a window and take note of a valiant dwarf, stalwart and on the precipice of death. He invites these dwarves through the aperture and claims them to join in his new realm.
As he passes one window, something catches his eye. Yes, that's what his dwarves would need: A seed! A small crumb of a world toppling into the void. Plucking this morsel from the void, Beor finds himself faced with a hulking, one-eyed dragon with sleek black scales. Between its two claws it also clasps the seed.
A tense aeon briefly passes.
A pact is made.
Between them there grows a new world from the seed of an old one.
On the new land Beor placed his home, breaking the stone with which he blessed his kin.
On this world, the Dragon placed his chosen, starting to follow the example of the dwarf and taking noble kin from worlds near and far.
Though the two peoples would clash, the two gods would watch over it eternal, letting it spin alone on its own axis, old gods be damned.
The Beginning
Dwarves from all realms and times have found themselves waking up in a small, rudimentary chapel, dedicated to Beor. This chapel is, in turn, found within a larger Fortress; Rakust Dosīm.
The world outside has been changed drastically. Surrounding the Fortress; a gigantic chasm pockmarked with caves, with a magma ocean stretching as far as the eye can see.
Dwarves have settled into their new surroundings, building rooms, workshops and chambers to suit their needs. As the population grows and more questions arise, only time will tell what will be revealed.

Role-Playing
On this server, you will be playing a character. For this world, specifically, you will be playing a Dwarf who has been displaced from their home (whether they remember that or not, is up to you).
Think of a backstory, which can be as detailed as you want. Where does your Dwarf come from? What are their interests? How do they talk and act? Are they brave or cowardly? All these little nuances will add up to create a truly memorable character.
You can be any profession you wish, from mechanically-based ones such as blacksmiths, farmers and alchemists, to more roleplay-based ones, such as scholars, explorers, cheesemakers, and many more. Our team of Storytellers and Community Moderators will do their best to allow each player to form their own stories and make their own experiences.

why kill elves if you could torture them, make them betray their friends, denounce their "force", make them watch trees being chopped down, feed them meat and throw them in magma as a sacrifice for almighty Armok?

Eventually when you go far enough the insane start becoming the sane

We do have an event planned tomorrow, Saturday 20th October, 10AM EST/6PM BST.

A dark pallor looms upon the fortress of Rakūst Dosim.
Frightening sounds and grim apparitions haunt these halls.
Strange, warped beasts shamble forth from places once thought secure.
Powerful alien magics turn Dwarf against Dwarf.
And from a narrow crack in the southern desert wafts the stale, choking miasma of ages-old decay; buoyed upon the endless screaming of countless horrors...

Now you will know why you fear the night.

Yeh, BST is GMT :D

Did you know that cats that have mysteriously disappeared from home can come back after a few months without warning?

This is for self-containing games.
