Play on Easy or above
Find the blocks for and complete the Monument, whatever it's name may be

01 - Septum Immoriel
Map Type: Linear-Branching Difficulty: ROMHack Hard Number of Objectives: 21 Expected Release: 2015
The Lands of Immoriel await your coming. The Palamock laughs at your futility. You are watched, and the world is over.
Septum Immoriel is a unique and massive CTM map, designed to not only be extremely difficult, but also be unlike any other CTM map you've ever played, featuring unique custom mobs, beautiful terrain, a fully realized story, special triggered events, and a unique Custom Potion feature, allowing players to create brand-new potions using unique ingredients. The map has been over 2 years in the making this far, and continues to grow and change by the day! The map's fully fleshed out story and unique and continuous landscape and story will help make the map feel connected and alive like no other.
This map is being developed by myself with assistance from members of the CTM community! Huge thanks to everyone who has dedicated time, blood, sweat, and tears to helping make this map as amazing as possible!
This map would not be possible without the building assistance, designs, and huge help of these amazing people:
Timetoslide - The Stolen Citadel designs
Tuckler16 - The City of the Winds builds and design (GaleHold Estate build)
Carloooo - Tyranny of Agamemnon original build (Agamemnon build)
Epiclandlord - I4 assistance and help with Darkhelm the Restless
Apophum - Redstone help and design with Darkhelm the Restless
Xekaj - The Visions of Argus additional builds
Krose - Darkhelm the Restless additional builds
Ragirk - The Monolith Deadground terrain
The VoxelBox Build Team - The Castle of Lost Souls build and design (Tanviir build)
The CTM Community Team - The City of the Rafters build work
Theawesomeonehhh - General awesomeness and build help
Now, here's some images to get you excited for the map:
More below the spoiler:
The swamp claims souls, the world churns
Your goal - The Monumentum Immoriel
Hidden away; the City of Fallen Trees
Skeletons await in the Conscriptorium
Virulent violence in the ruins of the Shattered Conservatory
Only death awaits in the Ruins of Immoriel
Agamemnon's hand finds all...
The Stationary Guardian is armed for your break-in
The final quiet place... Intersection the fourth
Even the shadows betray you in Darkhelm's home...
The map features 4 Intersections, but also a Dungeon-style setup. You move through the map as a linear branching map, but within each area will be at least one Dungeon, which will often contain a wool, but will not always do so.
I also will use an expanded Victory Monument. Not only does the player need the normal Wool and the Iron, Gold, and Diamond blocks, but an Emerald block and Redstone block as well, bringing the objective count to 21.
Furthermore, a second Monument is accessible elsewhere in the map, that will serve as a storage space for the Lore Books you find. If you find a book without an Author, be sure to hang onto it, as it will come in handy later for this bonus monument.
Of course the areas need to be named, so I'll list my areas below, along with a progress bar.

Here's an image of the area to show it off a bit. I've also now got three wools placed throughout the map, which means if anyone is interested in giving the beginning a runthrough, for balance testing, please send me a PM!
Wow looks nice i would love trying this looks epic
i love how you did that thing in the first picture xD dont know what to name it
That is the area called "The Rabbit Hole" I couldn't come up with anything else either XD I just used an MC edit brush with a randomizer on it, and then a second, smaller brush to break it up. Then I flew around and hit things
If you'd like to try out the first three wools (Warning: It's really punishing), I'd be happy to send you a download link.
