The Creeper Citadel:
Map Link: Creeper Citadel
Overworld Directions: Within the spawn town, Central, there is a small quartz gazebo (dome) immediately on the lefthand side of the spawning platform, also seen centered here. Events Night, any TARDIS or Time Gate -> Creeper Citadel (Main Platform)
Nether Directions: North Nether Rail -> Lily Keep (3rd Stop) -> World Center
Armor Rating: F - E Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Everything your heart desires within Moosemart, as well as the Combat Training Certificate armor set, best to start off new players.
Special Notes: There's a special cannon platform here accessible during Events Night that has a shortcut to all the science areas!

Before getting into the combat-oriented areas, we'll be covering the central hub of the science on the server, the Creeper Citadel!
The citadel itself is a floating fortress positioned exactly at the center of the server, accessible via a warp platform next to spawn in Central, via the Nether out of the Lily Keep station, and from the main platform of the End of Time during events night.
The island will have many varied uses over the course of future events; but currently, it serves the below primary functions:
-Quick-access NPC vendors and a 'save' point directly at the entrance, making for easy access to potions, food, or material trade-ins
-The Cavern of Science, a massive cave within the island itself that serves as a catalog of all available "science" items (Unique items not usually obtainable in normal play) found across the server, as well as where to obtain them among these new areas.
--Index of The Cavern Here.
-The Post Office, a universal meeting place where you can create a mailbox and leave other players mail! Or Items!
-The Science Workshop, the basement of the Post Office, a gathering area for any science items that need repairing or updating!
-Combat Training, located within the trunk of the large tree on the second Citadel platform. This is an area that allows a beginner-type tutorial on the basic Minecraft mobs, letting you fight weakened versions to acclimatize yourself to the game's combat. Complete all the courses and assemble a decent set of armor and tools!
-Moosemart, a collection of all unique NPC traders on the server, as well as Moosemart's own unique vendors offering various wares for emeralds- it's highly advisable that everyone visit the mart at least once, as it's an incredible resource for fighters and builders alike!
--Index of Moosemart Here.

A massive regenerating End City available during events night- Just like it's sisters, all the available loot from a normal End City is available here, Dragon Head and Elytra included! Looking for shulker boxes? This place is packed with Shulkers, slaughter to your heart's content! Be wary of the city's master- he is not the merciful sort.

Nether Directions: South Nether Rail -> DeNile (2nd Stop) -> Pandora (3rd Floor)

The End:
Map Link: No End Map
Overworld Directions: Main Central Portal: Grand Central Station, top floor -> Northern Peripheral, Eastbound (First Stop)
Nether Directions: Multiple Nether links:
-North Nether Rail -> Lily Keep (3rd Stop), End Portal
-East Nether Rail -> Doctrailia (1st Stop), End Portal (2nd Floor)
-East Nether Rail -> Super Shroom (3rd Stop), End Portal (2nd Floor)
-West Nether Rail -> Mesa's Edge (3rd Stop), End Portal (2nd Floor)
-South Nether Rail -> DeNile (2nd Stop), End Portal (2nd Floor)
Armor Rating: D - C Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Dragon Shards, and all items available from the Dragon merchants. Konarik's Mask, and chance at both the Demon Scythe and Miraak's Head for anyone that can obtain a Wooden Mask from the priests.
Special Notes: The obsidian pillars can still be mined by anyone like normal, and the end portal is setup to still allow you to re-summon the dragon with End Crystals.

The natural 'End' game of minecraft. Remember folks, keep inventory is never on in here!

We have two variants of End worlds available:
A static End in Rodinia that is never reset, and has an outer-end rail network maintained by Raegal, for those looking for their own adventure.
Laurasia's end is slightly more.. sciencey. The world itself is reset frequently, all except for the middle island- Because of this, the map for this End has been disabled.
The middle island itself is home to the usual mine-able obsidian towers and end portal, but also to many other towers, to make the outer-end easily accessible and to assist in fighting the Ender Dragon.
In addition, a massive Arena adorns the center to further aid in the dragon fight. Or, to those who are able, the 'Dragon Priest' challenge, which allows you to fight 8 skeletal priests with elemental attacks. These foes drop shards that can be collected and traded with a merchant on the spawning platform for the End, for a multitude of goodies!
The End is, as always, available via any End portals around the worlds!

-Laurasia Dragon Priests:
Armor Rating: A-? Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Elder Dragon Wings
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5.5th Horsemen Release post.

Hidden throughout Laurasia are four elite Dragon Priests, 3 within the oldest of Strongholds, and one whose tomb is concealed entirely by a pyramid of Aztec design. Obtain all 4 masks, and summon their master; a Dragon beyond ancient. Be warned, this will be unlike any normal dragon fight- and there's never the safety net of KeepInventory to rely on here!

The Lost Woods:
Map Link: Lost Woods
Overworld Directions: Grand Central Station (Top floor), South Rail -> Town of Halfway (First Stop) -> Halloween Town, follow the road North through the city and graveyard, there's a gap in the fence approximately Here that begins the woods. Events Night, any TARDIS or Time Gate -> Challenge Areas -> Lost Woods.
Nether Directions: South Nether Rail -> Eden Bay (First Stop) -> Lemuria Hub -> Halloween Town (2nd Floor), follow the road North through the city and graveyard, there's a gap in the fence approximately Here that begins the woods
Armor Rating: D - C Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: A plethora of custom drops, the Lost Woods has the most loot out of any area- bring a shulker or two. The main reward, however, is the Master Sword. Find three gems at the ends of the Fire, Forest, and Water temples, and bring them to the massive Deku Tree to claim your prize.. and slay some evil.
Special Notes: While the woods itself are mostly easy going, the dungeons and boss fights may be safest if left to Events Night. As a tip, follow the grass-path roads through the woods to visit all the 'main' areas.

Accessible via a gap in the fence behind the graveyard of Halloween Town on the Lemuria continent, the Lost Woods is a massive, overgrown forest covering what was an ancient kingdom, now overrun with all sorts of strange creatures. Many artifacts of the old kingdom are available to those who brave the trees, and if you're worthy, the sword of evil's bane itself.
Artfulness aside, this is a fully functional custom Zelda map, complete with dungeons, loot, boss fights, and even the Master Sword. Be prepared for a long haul if you plan on attempting this, as it will not be a short journey. Beyond the main path of the woods, all sorts of hidden treasures wait in the trees....
The woods vary in difficulty depending on the area, with bosses and dungeons naturally being more challenging than just running around the forest. The loot obtainable is more than enough to sustain a person, making this challenge great for old and new players alike!

-Hardmode Shrines:
Armor Rating: S Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Hero of the Woods armor
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5.5th Horsemen Release post.

Spread throughout the Lost Woods are four odd, red-sandstone structures; The Forest Shrine, the Dark Shrine, the Phantom Shrine, and the Drowned Shrine. These are advanced challenges aimed at veteran players who have gone through the areas to follow, and are re-visiting the woods for an extra challenge. Be warned, you'll be hard pressed to survive early on!

Speaking of challenges available to the new and old players alike, the Hunter's Lodge lets you set the difficulty yourself!
The lodge allows you to select and hunt different intensities of unique mobs within the Lemuria Badlands surrounding it, a massive terrain dedicated to hunting down baddies.
These unique mobs have chances to drop parts of themselves, which can be collected and used with the vendors within the lodge to trade for various armors and weapons, the quality of which increasing with the rarity of mobs the parts originate from.
In addition to the difficulty-level hunts, a Raid Boss is always available, which cycles out for a new boss at the beginning of each month- Take a group into the fight or try it yourself! Special Event items can be obtained from the drops of each raid boss, but be warned, you will need quite a few!
The Lodge is available 24/7 via the Lemuria Nether Hub, Lemuria's Grand Central Station in the overworld, or on Events Night via the EoT.

Horsemen Release 1 - Castle of Famine - Wychwood:
Map Link: Wychwood
Overworld Directions: Not currently accessible via Overworld, unless you jump off the North rail into it. Events Night, any TARDIS or Time Gate -> Any Warp -> Go to the extreme top of the Keep of Time, Spruce door.
Nether Directions: North Nether Rail -> String Theory (2nd Stop) -> Wychwood Hub -> Castle of Famine
Armor Rating: C Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Horsemen Quests, Horsemen-Area Armor/Weapon, Soul Mage Staff, Soul Obelisk
Special Notes: 8 gray, decaying, lava-spewing trees are hidden in the woods in a ring around the castle. Find them to find the Barrows, and gain access to Famine's dungeons! Be careful out in the woods, however, as besides the hoards of creepers, there's more than a couple holes you can get stuck in if one was to wander without caution.

Full release news post for full details: Here
The first area released in a series of events focused on our very own Horsemen of the Apocalypse!
This area focuses on Wychwood, the massive mega taiga surrounding the Castle of Famine- also accessible via said castle.

-The Barrows
Armor Rating: C Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Barrows Armors/Weapons,

Eight withered trees are scattered through the woods, housing eight crypts of mournful spirits. Defeat their reanimated corpses and collect their tokens from your fight, to obtain their equipment for your own!
Collect enough and bring it to the basement of Famine's castle, and another horror will await you...
The forest itself is also filled with odds and ends other than the trees, so feel free to explore!

-Kaer Morhen
Armor Rating: S Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Frost weapons, Norse Cataphract armor.
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5th Horsemen Release post.

Deep within Wychwood, a massive sprawling ruin of a castle lies, built into a mountainside. Elite soldiers of the Wild Hunt patrol it's grounds, and for those who disturb them, their Generals can be fought.

Fair Warning
While the other areas are of middling or mixed difficulty, this and all other related Horsemen areas are only for those who are confident in their abilities- which is to say, this is end game content. It will be difficult. Everything will want to kill you. Come prepared, have fun!

Horsemen Release 2 - Castle of Conquest - Snowhead
Map Link: Snowhead
Overworld Directions: Not accessible via Overworld. Events Night, any TARDIS or Time Gate -> Any Warp -> Go to the extreme top of the Keep of Time, Birch door.
Nether Directions: East Nether Rail -> Super Shroom (3rd Stop) -> Room of Divine Transportation -> Snowhead (2nd Floor)
Armor Rating: C - B Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Horsemen Quests, Horsemen-Area Armor/Weapon
Special Notes: IS COLD. FOLLOW THE RIVER.

Full release news post for full details: Here
The second area released in our series of events based on the Horsemen, this one focused on the snowy nether regions of Conquest, Snowhead.
The above-ground commodities are sparce, as is the nature of a barren plain of ice and snow, but don't let it's looks fool you: there's still a fair few things to discover on the surface.

-Temple of Ancients
Armor Rating: C - B Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Warpriest Armors, Godswords, Zaryte Bow

The main attraction of this release, however, is the Temple of Ancients; an old-school MMO style grind dungeon that lets you assemble sets of armor called 'Warpriest Armors', unbreakable armors fitted in the likenesses of 4 different gods. Additionally, with rarer drops, you can assemble what's called a Godsword, powerful weapons attributed again to the 4 gods involved with this play. There's a fair few other bits of equipment up for collection, and all can be found documented within the Cavern of Science. Also lurking in the depths of the temple, you may find a hidden challenge...

-Snowpeak Ruins
Armor Rating: S Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Mirror of Twilight
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5th Horsemen Release post.

Hidden atop the mountains bordering Snowhead, a solemn mansion sits in ruins against the snow. Some of Conquest's most elite guard patrol the halls here, guarding a relic from a time long past...

Fair Warning
While the other areas are of middling or mixed difficulty, this and all other related Horsemen areas are only for those who are confident in their abilities- which is to say, this is end game content. It will be difficult. Everything will want to kill you. Come prepared, have fun!

Horsemen Release 3 - Castle of War - Shattered Sands
Map Link: Shattered Sands
Overworld Directions: Not accessible via Overworld. Events Night, any TARDIS or Time Gate -> Any Warp -> Go to the extreme top of the Keep of Time, Jungle door.
Nether Directions: West Nether Rail -> Salad Facts (2nd Stop) -> Castle of War.
Armor Rating: B Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Horsemen Quests, Horsemen-Area Armor/Weapon
Special Notes: The Fight Kiln is accessible by choosing the 'Surface' warp out of the main castle island, and running directly across the desert. On that same note, so is the entrance for the Heart dungeon!

Full release news post for full details: Here
The third area released in our series of events based on the Horsemen, this one focused on the arid desert sands of War, Shattered Sands.
The surface of the desert is teaming with endless husks, as well as War's own personal soldier, the Golden Army. Beneath the sands lies all manner of challenges, including the mine called 'The Heart', and the 'Fight Kiln', among other things! Take a look for some powerful gear! More details under the new post!

-The Heart
Armor Rating: B Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Anima Core armor sets, Anima-forged god weapons.

The Heart is a massive underground dungeon directly beneath the central isle of War's castle. Four facions of gods can be found down here, fighting for the supernatural resource known as 'Anima', that can only be found here. Brave the generals and the guardian of the tree, and obtain for yourself some of the best armors around!

-The Fight Kiln
Armor Rating: C - S Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Golden Dragon Claws, Golden Warpriest Armor, Golden Shears, etc

This area lets you fight against, and collect rewards from, endless waves of TokHaar golems, which can be used to trade for various prizes- most of the unbreakable tools variety! The difficulty is toggle-able, going from Easy mode with the lowest drop-rates, to Hard mode with the best drop-rates pre-end game, to Apocalyptic for those who have conquered all of what science has to offer. Easy can... easily be done with diamond or comparable armor, and Normal can usually be handled if one has been through Wychwood or Snowhead. However, Hard usually requires one to have beaten the dungeon of War, the Heart. Apocalyptic is recommended to wait until one has conquered the final Horseman area, as well as the newgame+ areas before attempting.

-Dominion Tower
Armor Rating: S Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: See 'Dominion Tower Merchant' on floor 3, Bay 329 of Moosemart.
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5th Horsemen Release post.

Not-so hidden on the Shattered Sands, stands the half-buried Dominion Tower; a curious place that lets you fight nightmares from the past, present, and future, in a back-to-back brawl to the death. Get to the end for some lucrative prizes!

Fair Warning
While the other areas are of middling or mixed difficulty, this and all other related Horsemen areas are only for those who are confident in their abilities- which is to say, this is end game content. It will be difficult. Everything will want to kill you. Come prepared, have fun!

Nether Directions: South Nether Rail -> Eden Bay (First Stop) -> Lemuria Hub -> Sleepy Hollow (2nd Floor)
Armor Rating: A Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Horsemen Quests, Horsemen-Area Armor/Weapon, Sunken Ship/Buried Treasure loot chests
Special Notes: BRING A PUMPKIN!

Full release news post for full details: Here
The fourth area released in our series of events based on the Horsemen, this area focuses on the black depths of Death, the Shoals of the Departed (aka Departed Shoals). A massive area of ocean has been warped and distorted by the presence of the Horseman's castle, causing all sorts of unnatural horrors to populate the depths. Shipwrecks litter the seafloor, containing Ruins Keys that match a corresponding ocean ruin somewhere else within the area. Match key to ruin, and reap the rewards. There's plenty of.. other things to do beneath the waves, as well.

-Divine Tempest
Armor Rating: A-S Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Higher Artifacts, Elder Artifacts

The main attraction is the massive storm swirling in the center of the ocean, the Divine Tempest. To access it, you'll need to find a way up to, and then through, the floating island ruin of Laputa, defeat the World Guardian, and find the gate. Once among the clouds, you'll have your choice of gods to fight!

-Elder God Sanctums
Armor Rating: S-? Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Elder Artifact - The Mirror
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5th Horsemen Release post. Extra Warning - This chain of events ends with the hardest fight of all science bosses. Prepare diligently.

Scattered under the waves of the Shoals of the Departed, four tests of the mind and body wait for those who think themselves ready to face off against the Elder Gods, the primordial forces of the universe. Defeat all 5 challenges, and then seek the sleepy city beneath the waves...

-Realm of Darkness
Armor Rating: ? Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Dark Realm Armor, Dark Realm Keyblade, Light Realm Keyblade
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5.5th Horsemen Release post. Elder Artifact - The Mirror is needed in order to enter.

While a separate dimension on it's own, the only way to enter the dark realm is within the abyssal hole at the center of the sunken ruins of R'lyeh. The Realm of Darkness is the origin of all Heartless across Laurasia; while they may not be much of a threat under the sun, all forms of Heartless are stronger here. Navigate these dark passageways and find the end to be able to obtain some interesting loot!

Fair Warning
While the other areas are of middling or mixed difficulty, this and all other related Horsemen areas are only for those who are confident in their abilities- which is to say, this is end game content. It will be difficult. Everything will want to kill you. Come prepared, have fun!

Horsemen Release 5 - New Game+ Areas
Full release news post for full details: Here
This release differs from the previous 4, in that it was not one specific area released- but 4 new areas released across the four existing Horsemen areas. A new room within the Cavern of Science has also opened, holding specifically the drops from these areas. Be warned, however- these areas are not for the faint of heart, and best attempted after one has managed to fight through the Divine Tempest.

Horsemen Release 5.5 - Science Updates and Rebalancing
Full release news post for full details: Here
This release was a very odd one, grouped together just due to the sheer amount of things that all happened at once. While no actual Horsemen areas were released here, updated and changes did happen across all of the Challenge Areas collectively. Many of the mobs, items, and equipment have been either cleaned up, rebalanced, or both.

If you've done or received any items from the Challenge Areas pre 1.14, it's worth a visit to the Changelog to see if you need to have any items switched out/updated; which can be found Here.

Along with that, a few new areas popped up:

-Laurasia Dragon Priests:
Armor Rating: A-? Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Elder Dragon Wings
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5.5th Horsemen Release post.

Hidden throughout Laurasia are four elite Dragon Priests, 3 within the oldest of Strongholds, and one whose tomb is concealed entirely by a pyramid of Aztec design. Obtain all 4 masks, and summon their master; a Dragon beyond ancient. Be warned, this will be unlike any normal dragon fight- and there's never the safety net of KeepInventory to rely on here!

-Hardmode Shrines:
Armor Rating: S Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Hero of the Woods armor
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5.5th Horsemen Release post.

Spread throughout the Lost Woods are four odd, red-sandstone structures; The Forest Shrine, the Dark Shrine, the Phantom Shrine, and the Drowned Shrine. These are advanced challenges aimed at veteran players who have gone through the areas to follow, and are re-visiting the woods for an extra challenge. Be warned, you'll be hard pressed to survive early on!

-Pandora
Map Link: Pandora
Overworld Directions: Currently, only the Cannon shortcut platform from the Creeper Citadel.
Nether Directions: South Nether Rail -> DeNile (2nd Stop) -> Pandora (3rd Floor)
Armor Rating: C Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: FLOWERS.
Special Notes: There's some giant Mushrooms hidden in caves around here!

A massive, "regenerating" Flower Forest! Massive 'Hydra Flowers' can be found across the forest, that spawn a hoard of Sporelings that drop all sorts of flowers. Butcher your way through hoards of colorful fun, and you can even cash in your winnings for emeralds back at the rest house!

-Camirus
Map Link: Camirus
Overworld Directions: Currently, only the Cannon shortcut platform from the Creeper Citadel.
Nether Directions: East Nether Rail -> Doctrailia (1st Stop) -> Camirus (4th Floor)
Armor Rating: C Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Crossbows, Emeralds, Totems of Undying.
Special Notes: Hit it solo or bring a group!

One of the pretty new 1.14 villages, setup to allow for unlimited Raids to be spawned and fought! Want to experience one in a controlled environment, or just want a place to get rid of Bad Omen? Come visit!

-Realm of Darkness
Armor Rating: ? Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Dark Realm Armor, Dark Realm Keyblade, Light Realm Keyblade
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5.5th Horsemen Release post. Elder Artifact - The Mirror is needed in order to enter.

While a separate dimension on it's own, the only way to enter the dark realm is within the abyssal hole at the center of the sunken ruins of R'lyeh. The Realm of Darkness is the origin of all Heartless across Laurasia; while they may not be much of a threat under the sun, all forms of Heartless are stronger here.
