Echoes of Minecraft History

Behold, the history of the server. We've been through several different worlds over the time this server has existed, and the last moments of each are preserved here for you to download and play yourself in single-player mode. Think of this as the museum of Idle Thumbs Minecraft past.

The First Epoch

September 9, 2010 - October 30, 2010

The first epoch was long and prosperous and there was much rejoicing. Many were taking their first steps in a brand new game, and wonders abound throughout the land.

The Second Epoch

October 31, 2010 - October 31, 2010

The second epoch ended almost as soon as it began in a weird oopsie and everything was lost in a day. Alas, no records exist of this short-lived time.


The Third Epoch

November 1, 2010 - December 27, 2010

The third epoch rose swiftly from the ashes of its ill-fated predecessor, becoming what some have called the greatest of the Idle Thumbs epochs.

The Fourth Epoch

December 28, 2010 - June 24, 2011

By far the longest, the fourth epoch saw many great works, constructed at great personal risk by a tireless and dedicated few. Rumors abounded of a lost subway system converted to storage by the government, but no explorers ever reported discovering it.

It is cold on the frontier. There have been no sightings of monsters to date, but we remain ever-vigilant.
