Minecraft Explorers Banner

Minecraft Explorers is a way of playing Minecraft multiplayer which promotes constant exploration and migration and tests the survival skills and teamwork abilities of even the most veteran Minecraft players. Explorers accomplishes this by imposing a rule set which must be followed at all times which forces the players to make decisions which they would normally not face in standard survival mode. Try it for yourself on your server to experience it!
