Novus is a small friendly fully vanilla private server that I run. We’ve created a great community over the past few years and normally have anywhere from 0-8 players on at any given time. We regularly play mini games on and off the server together and have developed many good friendships with each other.

‚ÄčTo apply to the server, fill out this form. We are very selective when it comes to whom we accept to the server, so make your application look good. If you are accepted you will be notified via the email you provide in your application. If you are not accepted, you will not receive any communication.

I started this server because I’ve always had a hard time finding reputable servers for myself with a mature crowd, and where I don’t have to worry about griefing. Keep in mind however, the server doesn’t have any way to prevent people from stealing your things, destroying your house, and ruining your day. So please, take precautions to hide your precious things. I have the whitelist enabled so that I have some control of who enters my server, and will do background checks on every application received.


If you would like to help with server costs, click the button below to become a patron on Patreon.  I will make your name on the server blue to show my appreciation.
