Story Mode

Hide Your Fire is currently gearing up for our second season of a story mode – during this time, game mechanics and elements will change so as to serve the larger story arc.

Wanna get caught up? Here’s a recap of SEASON ONE.


Pre-Season: “Realism is a dirty word”

Season Two is getting closer to launching. If you’re a regular player, you’ve noticed a few changes already: mobs have health bars, wearing heavier armor makes you move slower, weather is now a bit more realistic, and mob breeding is more realistic as well.

There’s a few more changes coming soon that I think will make for a better experience as we head into Season Two. Expect to see the trend toward realism inch a bit further, and as always, I welcome your feedback.

So, why play at Hide Your Fire? Good question. Here’s why.

We’re player run.

We have a light but functional government of player operators, and player input is what drives this place.

We’re well managed.

Our server admins are pro/am, and know their stuff. Years of nightly backups, with per-spot or per-player rollbacks available for the asking.

We’re free.

There is no currency involved, no buying ranks. We play because we love Minecraft.

We’re friendly.

We’re almost always super welcoming and nice. Oh, and there’s no hate speech tolerated here – racism, nationalism, sexism, homophobia. That means you’re safe to just relax, and play. It’s smashing.
