    Gifts of the Gods is a free roam type rpg. There are no hoops to jump through or lava pits to avoid. I design this game as an extension of Terraria as is, only giving it more of a story and plot line. Exploration of the land is highly encourage and co-op is also highly recommended.

    Story: You are a young farmer living in the Village of Vulcan, which sits next to Castle Vulcan. Unfortunately these are dark times and the Kingdom is at war with the Corruption. The Wall that once protected the land is beginning to crumble and the last of the knights sent to protect The Wall have failed. King Vulcan VIII decides to abandon the Kingdom for safety of the people, until the Corruption has been dealt with. This is were you, the humble farmer comes in. You and several others have been elected to search for the Gifts of the Gods. Centuries ago, the Kingdom use to worship the Gods, and in return, the Gods gave man gifts. These gifts were powerful armor and weapons helped keep the Corruption at bay. Foolishly, not so long ago, King Vulcan II decided to abandon the Gods, as he believed that the legendary Order of the Cobalt Knights were enough to keep the Corruption at bay. He ordered the gifts be return to the temples from which they came, began construction of The Wall. Peace was about the land for centuries later, but the Order of the Cobalt Knights began to change, for you see, the hearts of men can easily be corrupted. For unknown reasons the wall began to crack, the order began to fall, and the rest is history.

    -Begin your journey young warrior, for the Gifts of the Gods, and seek out the source of the Corruption

    I must say the work in this map is amazing i've been watching the forums for an update too ;)
    I hope you don't mind but i imported some of your designs to my private world because they just look so awesome.
    Don't worry i don't claim stuff as my own and its my own world so no one will see it but me (and you if you really want to).
    I see by the blocks under the tree of life you also use TEdit

    Also i kept your map in my map list too its fun to play but i'm just to stunned by the man hours you must have put into this. (also can i get the schematic for the ungriefed forest temple please?)

    this map is amazing!
    i love that terraria online has such a talented
    builder!;)
    but there was one thing if u want i could work on the storyline about humanities desperate attempt, to find the gifts the gods left. I already have ideas for it i can pm u i mean u must be busy and i understand and i want to lift some weight off that.:D
    Have you seen the update list? Under future updates it says, enemy factions will come to your world and make cities. We could call them the CORRUPT FOLLOWERS or something like that.
    The story is not bad, but could use more detail. But if u built buildings that go with story, they could almost speak for them selves.

    sincerely Cc.

  9. Percival Green Slime

    Aw, man. Look at that tree! My tree is a sapling next to that monster. The roots go everywhere! And you've got glass clouds. Why didn't I think of glass clouds? That would have been great as part of the sky island chain on my world.

    I couldn't place it as to exactly why your leaves looked so much better than the tree I made. But after scaling that tree I noticed your use of green brick walls to make the foliage appear thicker. Very inventive and I'm totally stealing it.
  11. Kaing Eskimo Zombie

    yeah thats true, at first i did it without the green bricks and it just didnt look right, after i put the green bricks in the background it looked much better and not just green dirt rings on trees
  12. Lan EX Cursed Man

    Tell me you didn't place that Yggdrasil tree just now >_< must try!
  13. Kaing Eskimo Zombie
