Today we are featuring the survival map The Cloud Layer, by TerrariaOnline.com forum meber MrCheese911. The Cloud layer isn't your typical island based survival map and exploring this large world will take a good amount of time.
Since this is a survival map, there really aren't any rules. The game plays like vanilla Terraria, but you won't be starting out emptyhanded. Ore's and treasure chests are scattered all around this world and can really help speed up your progression through the game. Even tools like an anvil and furnace are supplied right at the start, and I really appreciated the head start that gave me.
There a good helping of islands to discover as well. From large arenas full of traps and monster spawns, to abandoned villages. Of course there are the usual corruption and jungle islands, but they are definitely outnumbered by unique and unusual islands.
I asked MrCheese911 some questions and he was kind enough to answer:

This is a community-hosted event - please direct all questions to PsiSyndicate's thread or YouTube channel, and have fun!
Today we have a Story Feature something that we have only done one other time and I think this one definitely deserves a feature for this week. I'm not going to spoil it by talking about it to much here. So here is the Synopsis, and Table of Contents, and don't forget to tell us what you thought of it and maybe you will take on the challenge and be the next story writer on Terraria Online!
In the shadow of a dungeon a god-killer prepares to escape from the world by destroying it. On the other side of the continent, another man wakes up in a field with no memory and among strangers. His past lies locked in the fragments of his dreams, but in an attempt to remember he will be forced to retrace the god-killer's footsteps and set off a series of events that will plunge the land into chaos.
This is the story of their war to control fate, whatever the cost.
