If you recall, last week we were linking Curse's March Gaming Bracket Challenge for you all to show your support for Terraria's Dryad - she won the first round! This time she's up against Aela the Huntress from Skyrim, so be prepared for a tough community voting battle. Here are the full results from the first round (click for full results writeup):
Today we have an adventure map made by TerrariaOnline forum member XoGenius called The Forgotten Ice Temple. It's an awesome, well thought out map, but this map is no walk in the park.
The Forgotten Ice Temple is single or multi-player for up to 4 people. You even have your own character, the first player/single-player character is Joe, the second player is Michael, the third player is Brian, and the forth player is Marshall. In the downloaded zip, you'll have a different world for how many people you have playing. So the four player map is different from the two player map, etc. The worlds aren't different per se, they just have different loot for the corresponding amount of players. XoGenius has also supplied videos showing you what certain switches do in the game. If you find yourself stuck after pulling a switch, check the corresponding video to see what flipping a certain switch did.
In my single player playthrough, I was pegged as Joe, a young man on a mission to take a bowl to the wise old man at a temple. You soon learn of the Forgotten Ice Temple and are tasked with finding 4 keys(levers) to unlock the path to the once forgotten temple. This is where the adventure starts to pick up as you venture out to find the keys.
You'll encounter tons of enemies, in and out of...
There is much to see, create, and discover in the world of Terraria, so the aim of this recurring piece is to focus on a small part of it and see what you all have come up with.

Now, back to the Creation Compendium. This week's theme is Space - This has been a much-requested theme! If you have built a space station or ship, or have even made a model solar system, this is the theme for you.
♦Redigit has ended development of Terraria. He's promised one last bug fix, but then he's going to enjoy time off with his family. He has hinted at a new game, and we at Terraria Times wish him luck with both his new child and new project.
Us: Obselescence, you are most well known for your fan-fic, Ladder to the Sky. What inspired you to write this adventure?
Obselescence: Wouldn't say I'm most known for that. Partially because it never finished, and partially because I think The Chronicles of Gandalf ended up getting more of a reception. But sure.
Ladder to the Sky was actually a joint idea I had with a dude named Zerovirus (who is also an amazing spriter). We really liked the Terraria and said "Hey, you know what? Let's write a backstory for this crazy...
Today we have an awesome PvP map called PacMap Arena posted by TerrariaOnline forum member Herzreh, who is part of the YouTube channel Hold Reset Gaming. It's a great map, and it can be used as a capture the gem map, a team PvP map, or even a free-for-all PvP map. Here's a time-lapse video of me and some buddies going at it in some team PvP:
As you can see, we were having a blast! We were stealing the gems from each others base, but ultimately we were just fighting each other. There are some awesome items that each team gets to start with. Everyone gets a Sunfury, an Ice Rod, a Demon Scythe spell book, and a Curses Flames spell book. Everyone also gets a set of Mythril Armor that comes with the Mythril Hood. For accessories, you get a Dual Hook, Spectre Boots, Cloud in a Balloon, and Angle/Demon Wings depending in which team you are on. For the sake of identifying the other team, social outfits are included as well. A team of Mario look-a-likes will fight a team of Link look-a-likes.
The map is laid out very nicely, and the effect of fighting in a giant Pac-Man arena is done very well. The pathways are nice and dark, you can hide out on a ceiling if you wish, thanks to 20 gravity potions you start with. You also won't have...
