Journey to Ark Cluster
(Aberration/Extinction/Lost Island/Crystal Isles spawns on Ragnarok, custom drops on all maps, x10 item stacking, boosted stats, 1.5-2.5x harvest/exp/taming, 300 dino level cap, 150-200 player level cap and more. Details below)
We are currently looking for a fresh line of new players for our cluster of PVE servers. We aim to maintain a family friendly, relaxed atmosphere for our servers with our settings geared towards the casual player. Many of our players have jobs, school, or family commitments, so our settings aim to accomodate players who may not have unlimited free time on their hands while also leaving an element of challenge and growth intact.
Our current maps consist of Ragnarok, Genesis, Genesis 2, Valguero, Crystal Isles, Lost Island, The Island, Scorched Earth, Aberration, and Extinction. Fjordun will be added to the cluster upon release. We currently have Ragnarok, Genesis, Genesis 2, and Valguero established as primary servers, with the admins covering their monthly boosting. The rest of the maps are brought online on an as needed basis, or are maintained through player donated boosts.
Our servers are currently lightly populated with only a small number of players across the entire cluster so we have plenty of room for a new base of players to grow.
Discord participation is optional but strongly encouraged for keeping on top of the latest news and event information as well as connecting with other players.

If the servers aren't showing up for you, make sure that you have the box checked to show password protected servers.
General Server Information:
XP Multiplier = 1.5 to 2.5*
Taming Multiplier = 1.5 to 2.5*

Boosted Dino Stats (Health x.3, Stamina x2, Weight x2, Melee x.2, Speed x2)
Boosted Flyer Speed (This is done via a percentage increase to the taming bonus meaning Pteranadons and Griffins will have a noticeable increase while slow flyers like quetzels will only have a small increase. Flyers that don't have a taming bonus to movement speed aren't effected at all, such as the argentavis, wyverns, and snow owls. Our goal was to hopefully make some underappreciated flyers more useful, while not over-powering flyers that already have a bunch of utilities that make them popular. This also effects land creatures that have a taming bonus to movement speed.)
Longer Days/Shorter Nights (Approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes of day to 10 minutes of night)
Custom Beacons, Loot Crates, and Alpha Loot
Element from red drops, red loot crates, and alphas.
Most single stack items stack-able (Prime Meat, Honey, Wyvern Milk, etc)
Custom Spawns = Aberration and Extinction spawns on Ragnarok. Ichthyornis do not spawn on ANY map. They are all dead. Purged. Extinct. Gone. FOREVER AND EVER. Pegomastix only spawn on the rotating server (Island/Scorched Earth/Aberration/Extinction).
Structure Decay Multiplier = 3 (12 days thatch, 24 days wood, 36 days stone, 48 days metal, 105 days tek)
Dino Decay Multiplier = 6 (48 days)
If anyone has a planned extended vacation that might cause them problems with these decay rates, then just let the server admin know ahead of time. These settings are in place to keep our servers clean for new players when old players leave. They are not in place to punish people for having a reason for not being able to log on to reset their decay timers.
General Server Rules:
Our rules are pretty simple and straightforward. If you can't find something specific under the rules, either ask the server admins or see rule 1.
Always be respectful and considerate of other players on the server.
Help keep the server uncluttered for other players. Destroy temporary structures/starter bases when no longer in use, don't spam pillars/foundations to prevent other people from building in an area or to prevent resources from spawning, and only build what you will actually use. Having individual personal bases by individual members of a tribe is fine, or having both a land base and a water base is fine, or having bases on multiple maps is fine, but we don't want to see a single person tribe building numerous empty bases sprawled across a single map just to have all the best building spots. Just be considerate, and keep your locations active. Also try to keep excess dinos cryopodded when possible. You typically don't need hundreds of dinos out at once at a single location all the time and this frequently causes peoples games to crash when they fly overhead so be considerate.
Don't block access to artifacts. If you choose to build a base in or near an artifact cave, the artifacts must be accessible to other players.
When looting beaver dams, remember that they don't spawn new materials unless the dam is completely destroyed. This is done by emptying EVERYTHING out of its inventory. If the wood is too heavy to take with you, just dump it on the ground so fresh dams will spawn for the next person. Your fellow players will greatly appreciate this.
Any instances of trolling, abuse, or harassment will result in banishment. This includes bullying or pressuring other tribes into tribe wars if they aren't interested.
No causing intentional damage to another player's character, tames, or bases. This includes dragging unconscious players into water to kill them, as well as stealing. This rule is voided if a tribe chooses to engage in a tribe war.
Regarding Tribe Wars: Our rules regarding tribe wars are relatively hands-off. Essentially engage in tribe wars at your own peril. As tribe wars are voluntary and only affect the involved tribes via supported game mechanics, admins will not intervene over the death of tames, destruction of bases, or the loss of equipment/supplies during tribe wars. Rules 1 and 5 will of course always be enforced though, so keep it civil and respectful.
Rules Regarding Server Admins: Our server admins are also players. While we have happily kept our servers open to others, the core reason for purchasing our servers in the first place was of course for ourselves to play on them. We do not permit admins to utilize admin commands to benefit themselves in any unfair way. You may however see admins using admin commands to address bugs, test changes to the servers, perform general server maintenance, or to host server wide events.
