Mystical Machines is a modded Minecraft network with the goal of keeping a small community, with few high-quality servers. We achieve this by having player caps on servers, keeping over 80% of the used plugins to be custom-made, and by only offering a limited amount of modpacks. Hosting only a few modpacks and keeping strict player caps on servers, allows us to keep the community small and not scale into a massive network. Mystical Machines is run by Brend, also known as Rubbertjuh. He has over 8 years of experience in hosting Minecraft servers and was also the founder of ToastyNetworks. ToastyNetworks was a network that used to be one of the biggest modded Minecraft networks in the world but shut down recently. After retiring for a while, Rubbertjuh's interest in community management, plugin development, and modded Minecraft reignited.
