Eronev 2: The Soul Cauldron

It's finally here, the sequel to The Eronev Mansion Adventure! Join Jarig in the Soul Cauldron to discover it's many secrets, fight it's terrifying monsters and experience an awesome adventure. This hybrid of Adventure, CTM like rules and Puzzles comes together in Eronev 2 creating a deep and complex story. Using state of the art Minecraft Technology from Minecraft 1.4, you'll see things you've never seen before.

Download The Map!

Latest Version DOWNLOAD

If playing on SMP ensure enable-command-block is set to true in the server.properties file!

If, for some reason, you didn't spawn at the beginning, the starting coordinates are: x:-122 y:162 z:338

This is not an easy map! The biggest complaint I got from The Eronev Mansion Adventure was that it was too easy. In Eronev 2 you will have to THINK about how to tackle your obstacles. You have fire resistance potions from the start... USE them, MAKE more and don't forget to craft the items you need! Did you die in Lava? Why didn't you have fire resistance on? Hell, why don't you just pour water all over the lava? This isn't a good map for people just starting out in custom maps as it uses some advanced Minecraft mechanics. Play carefully, play smart, don't panic. Good Luck.

Wait what? Custom mobs? Floating skulls? Command block dialogue??? There are SO many new features in this map that have NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE!

YES! It's out!
They told me that I could not simply walk into Mordor. So what did I do? I simply ran.

I have to shamefully admit that I did not play the original... But I've watched enough LP's to understand it! Therefore, I'll have to try this one as well! :D Looks promising!

I just finished playing the first one today, best map and one of the best MC adventures to date I have ever played, and then I go to play this one and I could not even get out of the first areas. SO MUCH LAVA!. It made it almost impossible to do anything due to causing lava to just flow every where and ruin things or kill me and I would loose all the items. It was a mess. I want to play this so badly but it just seems like if the ammount of lava in the starting area could be toned back then it would be much easier to get into it. The first had such great pacing and this one just seems like its gonna be so hard so fast.

That's why you get a bunch of fire resistance potions right at the beginning. Don't be afraid of using + making them Posted Image

The biggest complaint about the first one was how long it took to get to the good stuff and how easy it was, here you're given it right away.

Added some tips in the first post, hope that helps!

And now let's get down and dirty with this review for you Jig!

Alrighty - so, since I always have issues with the snapshots, I went ahead and played in 1.3.2. Still a blast!

I found the map great and fun!
Only real issue I had was dieing before setting my spawn, causeing me to find a way around the tunnel of lava in the beginning.
But over all, great and fun.

(side note) I'm secretly hoping you find the time to try it again in the snapshot, maybe when 1.4 comes out. I think it's light years ahead of the 1.3.2 version especially in the narrative with NPC dialogues.

My (Jigarbov's) Responses throughout the above in green, there aren't too many spoilers, but if you want to be kept completely in the dark don't read the review. Its fairly spoiler free though Posted Image

"Another thing is, in terms of 'difficulty', it was really quite easy. Thanks to all the potions, I never ever felt threatened by anything, even in the DDD, which was pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. That area was a real "CTM" experience, though I was a bit disspointed by the lack of any hugely strong reward. I did also finish the Trader's Quest, thanks to the book that was sold in the Nether, detailing where the traders are. I brought those items into the Boss fight which made damage not really an issue.

Funny, there was a post just 2 before yours saying it's too hard x) I guess it's going to be very polarising based on peoples Minecraft skill level, especially with potions and enchanting."

Thanks so much Fangride, glad you enjoyed the map. It seems the difficulty will be polarising, as will it's differences with normal map conventions. I must stress again to anyone playing this map, don't go into the map expecting Eronev 1.5 This is not the same kind of map and it will challenge you to think differently.

Glad you enjoyed it! If you died before sleeping in a bed, then you would have found a secret stash of fire resistance potions right there in the house under the floorboards (which becomes visible only after you leave the tunnel for the first time)
