How It Works

Three teams: Hunters, Runners, and Spectators Hunters try to kill the runners before they beat the enderdragon. Runners must beat the enderdragon before they get killed once!



  • Compass tracking: Right-click with your compass to choose who to track, then the compass will point to that runner!
  • Portal tracking: If a runner is in the nether, the compass will track their last-used portal!
  • Teams assignment: Automatically assigns in-game /team to distinguish between players with colors!
  • Discord integration: Optionally integrate with Discord for extra features!
    • Auto role assignment: Automatically assign Discord roles according to teams
    • Music player: Automatically (or manually) play music in your Discord voice channel that mirrors the action happening!


Instructions For Use

  • Move the .jar to your plugins folder.
  • Make sure your config file is up to date and has all the required options (more info down below).
  • Assign roles with /speedrunner/hunter, and /spectator.
  • If you want automatic music, type /music auto now.
  • Type /start!
  • After the headstart period is over, hunters should be able to start tracking runners by selecting someone to track by right-clicking with their compass.

Note: teams are not persistent between server sessions— if you shut down the server you'll have to re-assign teams and type /start again.

Discord Setup Instructions

    • Create a Discord app from the Developer Portal.
    • Add a Bot under the bots tab.
    • Take note of your Client ID (in the General Information tab) and your Token (under the Bot tab).
    • Go to the following link, replacing 123YourClientID456 with your client ID: https://discord.com/oauth2/authorize?scope=bot&client_id=123YourClientID456&permissions=8
      • Select the Discord server to add your bot to.
    • Add your Client ID and Token to the respective fields in the config file.
    • Go to your Discord server, and add the following values to the config file, in accordance with the table above (you can Right Click > Copy ID if you turn on Developer Mode in Discord settings!)
      • the ID of your server
      • the ID of the voice channel you want your music to play in
      • the ID of the hunter, runner, and spectator Discord roles you want to be automatically assigned

    Note: For auto-role-assignment to work, each Discord user's nickname for your Server must be set to their Minecraft username.



  • /speedrunner <username>: Assign speedrunner role
  • /hunter <username>: Assign hunter role
  • /spectator <username>: Assign spectator role
  • /start: Start the match
  • /end: End the match
  • /compass: Give yourself a compass
  • /music: Controls the Discord music
    • /music list: Gets a list of available tracks to play.
    • /music <trackname>: Plays a specific track by nickname and turns off auto-music.
    • /music stop: Stops all music playing and turns off auto-music.
    • /music auto: Turns on auto-music, which plays different tracks based on game events and hunter/runner distance.
    • /music forceupdate: Forces the music to update to match the current hunter/runner distance. Use /music stop first if a special event track is playing.
