The series started as a vanilla Minecraft multiplayer server on June of 2014, hosted by the first two streamers, Jeriicho (Tucker) and Syndicate (Tom). They were the only players at first, but they gradually began inviting other players to join them. The plot revolves around the Four Heroes, who are Tom, Tucker, Jordan (Captain Sparklez), and Sonja (Omgitsfirefoxx). They were later joined by James (Waglington) in Season 2.

The very beginning of Season 1 had no plot at all. But once the priest of Mianite (16bitDec) joined, he revealed that their land was ruled by two warring brothers, the God of Good Mianite, and God of Evil Dianite. Tucker chose to follow Mianite, and Tom was recruited by Dianite. When Sonja joined, she followed Mianite as well and became one of the four main heroes. A third god, the neutral Ianite, was created by Jordan when he refused to choose one of the two original gods. She was absent for a time, but her existence was proved when Mianite sent the Heroes on a quest to retrieve her stolen heart from Dianite. The first season ended on November 20, 2014.

Season 2 started on January 31 2015, with one of the major changes from season one being the inclusion of mods, and its setting in an Alternate Timeline. At first the plot consisted of saving the town of Dagrun from the approaching Taint. However, it quickly became clear that Mianite runs a much tighter ship in this realm than the other, and his followers are less than accepting of those who follow other gods.

Please note that while there are at least three fan-made wiki pages claiming to be official, none of them are endorsed by any of the members and all backstory on them should be taken with a grain of salt. Make sure whatever goes on this page is official, and keep fanon to WMG.

This series provides examples of:

  • Ascended Extra: In the first season, Waglington just appeared every once in a while. Season 2 has Wag as one of the heroes now.
  • Bad Moon Rising: Season 2 brought along the Blood Moon, in which randomly one night the Blood Moon would rise and more mobs would spawn,making it one of the most hated nights in Mianite.
  • Battle Couple: Tucker and Sonja.
  • Character Blog: Mot, CountryBat, and Martha all have official ones.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mostly Tucker, but Tom too on occasion.
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: Yes Tom, insult the Gods to their face.
  • Gentleman Wizard: Waglington is pretty much the friendliest person in Mianite.
  • Have You Seen My God?: There are many times when the gods are absent for a period of time.
  • Literal Cliffhanger: Season 1 ended with the heroes jumping of a cliff into the void.
  • The Hero: All four of the central players are The Heroes. Wag is promoted to this after the raid on Inertia.
  • Jerkass God: Regardless of whether they are supposed to be good or evil, both Mianite and Dianite have a tendency to be dicks to their chosen heroes. Averted with Ianite, in season 2 she openly hangs out and makes friends with the other Mianite characters and Teem Reester, and both versions have shown nothing but support for Jordan.
  • No Fourth Wall: Since Mianite is a Let's Play rather than an actual web series, the players casually refer to non-plot related things. There are, however, moments when they are supposed to be in character, but they break it anyway. Averted with it comes to the non-streamers. Ianite's final message to Jordan indicated that the Minecraft world is all the inhabitants of Ruxomar know.
  • Oh, Crap!: 'So Many.'
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. There are currently three Tom's running around.
  • Physical God: The three gods are all this.
  • Pun: Jordan makes a lot of puns, some good, some awful.
    Jordan: Are you purgeturbed?
  • Rule of Three: There are three gods, one for each of the realms. Mianite for the Overworld, Dianite for the Nether, and Ianite for the End.
  • Shipper on Deck: Tucker went so far as to build a marriage altar for Captain Capsize and Jordan in Season 1. He also shows support for Jordan and Ianite in Season 2. Sonja gets in on it too, with she and Tucker even suggesting to Ianite that she move in with Jordan when they first met in Season 2.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Tom worships Dianite, who is basically the devil.
  • True Companions: Tucker and Tom mainly, but all four of the main heroes are this.

Season 1 provides examples of:

  • Big Bad: Dianite is the ultimate Big Bad of the series, but Furia tries to usurp his role at one point. He was unsuccessful.
  • Bigger Bad: The Shadows looked to be this, but was ultimately revealed to be a ploy by Dianite to test his followers' loyalty. Until season two reveals that The Shadows and World Historian are the same person, and World Historian was season two's Bigger Bad.
  • Damsel in Distress: Ianite, and later Captain Capsize.
  • Didn't See That Coming: In response to Jordan's supposedly unrighteous stealing of Dianite's armor, the god teleports Jordan to the combat ring and summons a wither. The wither fires some shots at Jordan and flies away to wreak havoc elsewhere.
  • The Dragon: Furia.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: Furia rose up in an attempt to usurp Dianite.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: In the very beginning, Mianite wasn’t meant to be a roleplay server, so many of the early episodes are simply vanilla Minecraft Let’s Play.
  • God of Evil / God of Good: Dianite and Mianite, respectively.
  • Oh, Crap!: The sterling examples are the Tank of Judgement, when Dianite finds out that Jordan won Tom's Dianite armor through the purge, and when Dianite has a final showdown with the four heroes.

Season 2 provides examples of:

  • Alternate Self: All four of the main heroes have one, and it's revealed that Waglington does as well.
  • Alternate Timeline: Season 2 is revealed to be this.
  • Big Bad: It sort of fluctuates. Near the beginning of the series it was the Taint, but switched to become Helgrind after his stance on the other gods became apparent. After he was banished to the Nether, the new Big Bad became Mianite.
  • Bigger Bad: World Historian, who wrote many of the in-universe books, ended up as this.
    World Historian: Thanks for the quintessence.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Jordan has this after Ianite leaves Ianita behind.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Averted. Though the Wizards show up late into the Taint problem, and they seem like they are going to use their mighty Wizard Powers to help... They really don't do much to stop the spread of Taint. They just show Team Reester their badass new base.
  • Blood Magic: Tucker has gotten very talented with this.
  • Broken Angel: Prince Andor, a Winged Humanoid, had his wings cut off when he was imprisoned at the Inertia. He gets another pair, thanks to Jordan.
  • But Now I Must Go: Ianite after much heartbreak and becoming DePowered.
  • Butt-Monkey: (Ex-)Guard Tom. His treatment certainly makes the hero's look... not that heroic really. It comes back to bite the heroes in the final episodes. Most of the streamers inflict this on each other too, distributing copious amounts of death and destruction among Team Reester.
  • Catchphrase: In most every episode Farmer Steve appears in, he'll say "I'll give you a right rumble, mate!" at least once.
  • De-Power: Part of the reason why Ianite left.
    • This is also why Waglington is no longer a Wizard; his magic was drained by a particularly difficult teleportation spell.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Jordan and Waglington cleanse the Town of taint and took on the Taint statue manifestation, almost completely destroying it.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The Tainted Statue manifestation that shows up near the town. Although it was human-shaped enough to qualify also as a Humanoid Abomination at first, when it was taken apart by explosives it returns bigger, sprouting Combat Tentacles which it uses to assault the town and dropping the "humanoid" part completely.
    • It even is titled in the chat (when it speaks) as "Abomination."
  • Divine Parentage: Ianite is revealed to be the King's and Martha's mother.
  • The Exile: Tom was banished from Dagrun after he revealed that he worships Dianite. Subverted in that he isn't that torn up about it.
  • Fakin' MacGuffin: Jordan allows four of the Ianita's to be sacrificed in order to revive Ianite, not knowing that the original is in Martha's care. When Mianite finds out about the original he orders Jordan and Tucker to find it, even after he said that the four Ianita's had been enough. Grown suspicious, Jordan makes a decoy Ianita and has an acted-out "confrontation" with Martha in which he kills her. Jordan than gives the decoy to Tucker, who kills it, sparing the original Ianita. Everyone bought it.
  • God of Evil / God of Good: In Season 1, Mianite was the God of Good while Dianite with God of Evil. In Season 2, their roles seem to have reversed, with Dianite being on the heroes' side and Mianite being sketchy at best.
  • Grey and Gray Morality: In Season 2, Mianite is using questionable means to keep his people in line, and Dianite only shows his true nature to Farmer__Steve and Tom, though to be fair, it's justified in that its speculated his own brother killed him.
  • Hellhole Prison: The Inertia, by the way it's discussed, is not the best place to find yourself.
  • Infant Immortality: Averted as Sonja and Jericho find out by killing Jefry, Tom's "son."
  • Katanas Are Just Better: The Kikoku, the very sword used to kill Season 2 Dianite.
  • Merchant City: Dianite's dwarven city is described to be something like this.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Jordan accepted Lieutenant Al's offer to clear the town of taint in exchange for a powerful weapon, ignoring Martha's warnings as to what would happen. As a result, the taint returned the next day as an enormous, unstoppable monster.
  • The Nicknamer: Farmer__Steve enjoys giving nicknames to people it seems. Syndy for Syndicate, Wagz for Waglington, and Sparklybum for Captain Sparklez.
  • Oh, Crap!: Jordan's solution to destroying the taint proved to be counter-effective.
    • Pretty much everyone’s reaction to Dagrun being turned into a wasteland.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: When Dianite returns, he asks what he was like in the heroes' realm. When Jordan tells him, he responds that "other me is lame."
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Tom's Alternate Self is named Mot.
  • Ship Tease: There are many hints at Mot and Dianite possibly being in a relationship. Becomes cannon in the final episode.
  • The Tease: Martha the Mystic is Farmer Steve's girlfriend, but that doesn't stop her from flirting with all the guys on the server.
  • Winged Humanoid: Many characters, such as Prince Andor, King Helgrind, and even the Heroes due to the presence of Angel Rings.
  • The Wise Prince: Prince Andor.
  • Wham Episode: Deviser_Gaines and Mianite want Dianite resurrected.
    • Wham Line: Apparently, Mianite is not really the enemy.
    Mianite: Despite what you have heard about me, it is in my interest to see Dianite revived.
    • There is also this line found in a book in Sparklez' inventory...
    You trust too much. Do not. Question everything.
