The Maester Alliance is an ancient order focused on preserving the stories and texts that have been written by Minecraft players into in-game books.

The Alliance is currently focused on managing the Walo Nena Assembly and the Anpa Nena Tomo Scriptorium in Mt. Augusta on the CivMC server.


Civcraft 1.0

After the abandonment of Lazuli, NateMagic traveled north to an old mining outpost and started to build a great hall that would become The Citadel, other ex-lazulians Ttocs_is_Awe and SomethingSaucy came to join him and expanded the hall that housed many texts and added a village next to it. They were both collecting books and writing new ones. The three of them reached an agreement and named themselves the Maester Alliance.[1][2] The Maester Alliance was announced officially to the Civcraft subreddit by SomethingSaucy on the 2nd of March 2013.[3]


The closest thing to a headquarters of the Maester Alliance on Craftlang was the library officially named (in the toki pona language) tomo pi mute lipu pi ike sona, from which the english version is derived - Pikesona Heretical Grand Library. The reason for deeming the library "heretical" or to be containing "bad knowledge" was the fact that it mainly contained books written in english, not in any constructed languages - the focus of this particular server - nor about anything related to the server. The collection of the library was mainly made up of books originating from Civcraft 1.0. The library was located in the small town of Mokuhr, the most noteworthy settlement on the server.

Civcraft 2.0

After losing momentum at the start of the iteration, the Alliance resurfaced in 2014 and, led by Marcus_Flaminius, initially established a headquarters - the Omen Assembly - at the Omen Facility, an unsuccessful development project by Dr_Oracle.

The second headquarters of the Maesters in Civcraft 2.0 was the Tenpo Assembly, which was named "after our ageless nature" and the distant location "that has been forgotten by time" by using the Toki Pona word for time.[4] This headquarters was erected on a sizeable land claim located far north from the Omen Assembly, which was offered to the Alliance by Ogel6000, the leader of Saraliana. The land claim was soon neighboured by Garundistan, a tiny nation with strong ties to Craftlang.

To better protect the large land claim, the Maesters eventually also applied for membership in the North East Alliance and remained part of it as an Observer State/Member until the end of Civcraft 2.0. Additionally, close to the end of the iteration, there were also some discussions with nearby Eterna of collaboration, most notably to make use of their newly established Nether factory, which made travel to such a distant location considerably faster from more populated regions. The difference in travel time was enough to make it reasonable to consider building a public grand library on the existing land claim of the Alliance, but the iteration ended before any such plans could be realised. Instead, the friendly relations with Eterna led on to the Maester Alliance joining the Heartland Federation for CivTemp 2.0.


The Maester Alliance established and maintained a small expeditionary library - the Loje Library - on the second iteration of Bergecraft, in the town of Dearborn.


Built a facility named the Tawa Assembly[4] on CivTemp, in the Heartland Federation settlement of the Aleph shard. The name of the facility was decided by a vote, with the suggestion to use the Toki Pona word for travelling put forth by Logic_Man winning the majority.[5][6] Afterwards, a library was established within the Assembly, called the Tawa Assembly Library.[7]

Civcraft 3.0

In Civcraft 3.0, the Maester Alliance tried to ally with a suitable political group that would ensure enough security to allow for the establishment of a grand central library that would serve both as a place to copy texts from for other libraries as well as act as a centre of knowledge and research. Thus, the Maesters started out in Tjikko, together with Concordia. The Alliance had reserved the right to its own borough under the Concordian rule and work soon started on the library. Unexpectedly, however, the work was cut short fairly close to finishing the build, as ttk2 departed from Civcraft development and, as a result, Civcraft 3.0 ceased to be.

Devoted 3.0

Maester FabledMrFox created the Library of Augusta within Mt. Augusta and with Marcus Flaminius's permission led the Maesters on Devoted.[9] Helping FabledMrFox was TaylorLCling who would later go on to become a Maester.[10] The library had 44 books in its collection at one point.[11]

CivClassic 2.0

The Maesters were based in Mt. Augusta, in the Kamakon Assembly. Nearby was the largest and main Maester library, the Shardore Tower Library. At its peak the library had over 100 books on the shelves; the book collection of the library can be found here. During CivClassic 2.0, 7 new maesters were initiated into the order, saying their oaths at the Kamakon Assembly Hall.


The Maesters are much more spread out with Maester Lodish settling in Yoahtl, whereas Maester Logic_Man and Maester Milipede set up in Mt. Augusta. Not long after, Maester Flaminius returned from a long slumber and joined Maesters Logic_Man and Milipede.

In Altepetl - the capital of Yoahtl - the Xunkuilotl Tomo Lipu Library was built by Lodish, and in Mt. Augusta the Walo Nena Assembly and the Anpa Nena Tomo Scriptorium was built, as well as a plot for a future library reserved. Maester reffelruz set up to the west, in The Commonwealth, building Akesi Grove which was later used for the initiations of Jenson3rd and Peyt1212.[12]


The Alliance issues rulings, known as decrees, to govern their internal workings. As of December 13, 2021, these are the known decrees:
