**What is the MPW Mega Cluster?**

Quote

 

Maelstrom Persistent Worlds is a cluster composed of 6 servers and maps which are divided into two categories: Beginning and Endgame.

  • Ragnarok (Beginning Server), The Center (Beginning Server) , a mountain based PGArk (Beginning Server)
  • Scorched Earth (Endgame Server),  The Island (Endgame Server), an island based PGArk (Endgame Server)


There are NO restrictions on transfer within the cluster. You are free to roam and explore at your leisure.

 

 

 


**What is different about this server?**

Quote

The server is an RP oriented/friendly server which is heavily focused on diplomacy, trading, faction interaction (including trade, city development, politics, war, etc).

Here, the Persistent Worlds aspects become increasingly prominent with a living economy, a continually developing story, and faction influences all shaped by the players.

**What are the rates?**

Quote

 

Nodes give slightly more resources than found on official server. However you will soon find that they won’t respawn (or take a very, very long time to spawn back). The objective of such decision is to create an environment where the creation of trade routes might become necessary.

Eventually we envision caravans who risk being overtaken by bandits. Traveling from one map to another for resource expeditions may become necessary.
(The Endgame servers imply a higher quantity of resources, high level dinos, and quality equipment.)

 


***Yeah, but what are the rates?***

Quote

Exact value of rates are undisclosed to players to avoid meta-gaming decision making.

We like for players to feel things out instead of knowing exactly what to go for from the get-go. However, what we are willing to divulge is that they are close to those of official but with a variety of exceptions. For instance, you will find that hydration decreases rapidly and much quicker than food - simulating the fact that one could survive much longer without food than they may without water. So get those skins made quickly! (we recommend 3)


**What about the Dinos?**

Quote

Dinosaurs are more aggressive but they are more useful as well. Taming speed varies, with events every week-end but in general lingers around 3-5 on week days. 


**So what’s this "Persistent World" deal?**

Quote

MPW has several facets that fit into the Persistent World.
Most of these are interlinked which I will describe here:

Economy is the focal point of all kingdoms and factions. Resource scarcity may drive a certain kingdom to initiate a war with another, while it also may open up trade routes between kingdoms that were previously at war. Economy also fits in with civil unrest but there are other variables in play such as laws, crime, available jobs and quests, the current treasury count of the kingdom, and so on.


**How do you guys work out the economy?**

Quote

 

At the moment (meaning this can change if another prominent faction takes control of the economy) the main currency of the realms is called the Rupee. Rupees are actuality the name we gave to Berry Bush Seeds for their ruby-like appearance. This item cannot be found in the wild nor can it be grown. It serves no purpose in the game other than our intents and purposes: Trade.

At the moment, the Trading Consortium (a player faction of traders) controls much of the economy by helping to regulate the amount of currency being invested into the Realms. Kingdoms and other types of factions normally possess an impressive number of Rupees, and use them to pay the villagers and adventurers who accomplish tasks and quests - which they can use to buy valuable and rare resources from the Trading Consortium or finance their own kingdom.

 


**Wait... quests??**

Quote

There are currently three factions issuing quests. These quests are listed every Friday by the leaders of each faction. The way in which we keep track of who is doing what and who is owed what is very developed and involved. Rewards for quests offer invaluable resources as well as endgame opportunities to create your own faction, trade route, or expeditionary outpost.


**Where can I get quests?**

Quote

Please refer to the notice board channel on our discord (discord.gg/uHbcHrA) to see what quest and jobs are available at the moment. Every weekend the Persistent World story line is updated once all variables that happened throughout the week are taken into consideration. Available quests and jobs will change every week based on the current predicament each faction might find itself in.


***Can I create my own kingdom?***

Quote

 

Of course you can, but there are some prerequisites which first need to be filled. If you have a group of friends, these prerequisites are usually filled faster. Please refer to the Faction Founding channel on our discord (discord.gg/uHbcHrA).

 

 

 


**Can I create a village or kingdom without filling the prerequisites?**

Quote

 

Yes and no… by filling prerequisites you and future members of your kingdom are given access to additional resources to assist in the building effort, as well as an official private channel for the kingdom’s use only on our discord (discord.gg/uHbcHrA).You will also be given a portion of any of the 6 maps to use as your realm where you can enforce your laws and regulate your economy. For example - Viking bay, Redwoods, etc.


Additionally, you’ll have support that comes with the Trade Consortium (such as using established trade routes or access to rare resources in bulk). However, nothing is stopping you from building your own empire (criminal, government, or otherwise) that operates outside of the cooperation of the other realms.

 

 

 


**Can I join an existing kingdom?**

Quote

Yup, most kingdoms are looking are in need of more villagers to complete contracts and quests which contribute to the respective kingdom’s growth and story progression. Check out the Kindom-stats channel on our discord (discord.gg/uHbcHrA) to learn more information about each current faction and find out who to contact for each faction if joining their ranks is your aim. 


**Can I be a trader? a smith? a saddler? a farmer?**

Quote

 

Yes. You can be a damn princess-butterfly-kitten if you want. Whatever you decide to do - it'd behoove you to join a kingdom to practice your craft and get established with relative safety. If trading is more your thing, you could try to join a trading company or establish one, and support the growth of a realms. Refer to the notice board on our discord (discord.gg/uHbcHrA) for certain roles that each faction is currently looking for.

Disclaimer: We don't advise taking on the role of princess-butterfly-kitten. You will be hard pressed to find a faction in need of a princess-butterfly-kitten.

 

 

 


**I committed crime in a kingdom, what does that mean?**

Quote

 

Every kingdom might have different laws and with those laws are consequences when they are violated. It might mean that some players will be hunting you down to put you in jail, or that you’ll be raided, or any number of creative deterrent devices that kingdoms put in place.

This has resulted in criminal factions being formed that will perhaps welcome you with open arms. If you become wanted from any kingdom, you will be added to the @wanted faction, where you’ll be able to access a chat (discord.gg/uHbcHrA) reserved for criminal scums like you ;)

 


***What about your admins?***

Quote

Our admin team is forged from a network of trust and communication. Admins are expressly prohibited from abusing their administrative capabilities. Usually you will find admins mainly facilitating the storyline on Discord or playing their own character and sometimes even filling the role of Dungeon Master during events.


**How committed to your servers are you?**

Quote

 

The server is only just beginning, and with all the feedback we’ve been receiving, we’re looking forward to making changes that are recorded on our discord in the update logs. Even the players themselves display a level of commitment as they pour their collective efforts into a custom ini worth note. 

The style and systems we’ve put in place are designed with the long term in mind. We eventually would like to make interactive maps with timeline sliders where you can view the history of each kingdom’s territory, military might, and wealth as well as historical events and locations.

 

 

 


***How do I join?***

Quote

 

Switch to Primitive + then under Unofficial PC Servers simply search “Mae” and 6 servers with the name “Maelstrom Persistent World RP” will pop up.

Alternatively you can join our discord channel where much of our interactions occur at discord.gg/uHbcHrA or find our PS4 community with the same name as our server.

Is raiding allowed

Anyone who builds within a kingdom (specified area) in theory is safe from raids. If they build out in the wilds (ungoverned land) they are free game for raiding. If another kingdom begins a war, there will be raiding. Criminals can steal within a kingdom but risk being arrested and thrown in a dungeon if they are caught.

Right now there is only one kingdom which presides over VB.. the rest of ragnarok and 5 other maps is lawless and up for grabs.

All weekend there will be a 4x experience and 4x tame event which will allow newer players to get caught up, look forward to seeing you there! Check our community page for details on our discord. Being on our discord will give you access to quests and rewards as well as other opportunities that would be otherwise absent in the game.

Server is not showing up for me

Am currently logged on with 4 other players - be sure to switch to primitive + before searching unofficial PC servers for "Medi"

Also, if you're having issues - our Discord server is the best way to contact our most active players @ discord.gg/uHbcHrA

I have been on this ps4 cluster servers for about 2 weeks now, and I am having a blast! It's great. Pvp rp oriented server, where trade and diplomacy are really at the center of everything. There is plenty of places to conquer, a lot of quests and job to accomplish.

 

If you've been looking for a Roleplay oriented pvp server, don't hesitate and give it a go, we won't bite! ;)
