The fourth public reincarnation of a former small private server, Eyes of Birch aims to increase its player base while preserving in game tranquility and quaint atmosphere. Long term activity is sought, but the primary goal is to create a unique and enjoyable sense of community. This version of the server will be adding a few oldschool feeling tweaks to the vanilla game, and welcomes your nostalgia. Prepare to apply.
Freshly reset at the end of August, our spawn in this world is located in a pristine alpine valley between several towering mountains ranges. There we will begin to settle a spawn town. Your help–or at least your touristic interest–would be greatly appreciated. You may roam as you wish and build wherever, within reasonable consideration of your fellow players.
This server was initially made for Discord friends across several Discord servers, and now we are grouped together on one specifically made for this Minecraft server. We voice chat fairly often, and are always happy to hear new voices, or see new typists. Let me know in the application or elsewhere if you want an invite link.
I won’t lay down many solid rules, but rather trust you to understand the basics of a cooperative minecraft server. We all love vikings, pirates, and warlords, but please do not engage in destroying, stealing, or killing without some sort of understanding between players. Generally, do not make the game unenjoyable for others. I’m sure most of you have been through this before. Also, around the spawn area at least, please fill creeper holes, finish off trees, and keep the village and flowers preserved where possible. Thanks.
My in game name is IcedEmpyre. I am the owner and former operator. We are now instead running on a private server hosted from a physically accessible rig under the care of sneakysnek (aka AssassinRG). It is 24/7 and better performing than the old host. Specs at bottom of post. If you have any questions/suggestions regarding the server or game, feel free to contact either of us. Players of all experience levels are welcome. Players below 18 are not likely to be accepted, but you could certainly try submitting an application along with the rest:

We are looking to have some events in the future, including but not limited to boss fights, UHC, community builds, competitive mining, voice chats… We are running on paper spigot, but will not be using any major game changing plugins unless perhaps by overwhelming request of most members. The currently most substantial plugin is MCMMO.
The physical server is an R710, Dual x5650 processors with 72GB of RAM on a
fiber connection. The virtual machine has 2 virtual CPUs and 6GB of RAM provisioned right now, which can be increased as necessary. Running on a Raid 6 15K SAS array.
Whether beneath the hot desert sun, amidst the rolling ocean waves, sheltering from a high mountain blizzard, slinking through the dangerous night, or wherever else you might find yourself, I look forward to meeting you in game.
