If you want to play a server where your character gains stats and abilities as you level up, the RPG (or MMORPG) gamemodes might be for you.
Based on the RPG genre, on these servers there is more of an emphasis on character development and story. Players may interact with you in an old-fashioned dialect and treat your character as if it was truly whatever class and or profession you choose.
RPG servers are usually much more in-depth but will not be like a classic Minecraft game. Maps will be pre-built and quests, instead of mining, will be your daily routine. There are often a lot of interesting things to do on RPG servers, and each one will be unique, so be sure to check out a few before settling if you like the sound of this gamemode.
