This is my first Adventure Map in which you are tasked with investigating the disappearance of a group of archeologists who were supposed to be searching for the Aqua Temple, a mysterious, ancient greek temple that contains powerful weapons and magnificent treasures! However, the dig sight is in an area that is in the process of being invaded by the Skeleton Army who have trampled many towns and villages in their path!

If you like the map, want more maps from me or have any suggestions for this one then please leave a post!

Mods that you may find helpful if you want to construct your own adventures include:
INVedit (allows you to add any block to your inventory to be used in construction)
http://www.minecraft...pic.php?t=15921
Spawner GUI (allows for the changing of what mob spawners create including Giants and Humans)
http://www.minecraft...pic.php?t=80246
Cartograph G (allows your world to be mapped out in many different styles and is useful in finding caves/dungeons)
http://www.minecraft...f=1022&t=165779



This map is a sequel to my second map called "The Pitch-Dark War" in which a long lasting war between humanity and skeletons has reached it's climax as man is on the verge of finally completing it's fight in the western front!
You are sent with your squad to ready an outpost close to the Shrouded City which is the last of the skeletal refuges but when you reach there they are already launching their attack! You don't remember much else and awaken in the castle ruins; your squad, equipment and supplies are all missing!

'The Pitch-Dark War' adventure map is available here:
http://www.minecraft...f=1034&t=306708

SPOILER ALERT
I will be releasing another map which will be called "The Ancient Mystery" in which you will try to find out what happened to the protagonist of my first map and will take place in the same area (which will be significantly changed).

Finally, do not burn down the library with the 'flint and steel' which is what many of you keep doing - all that there is under the floor is a red stone circuit! Also, don't enter the cobblestone tower if you haven't been through the second temple! I may fix these problems later!

First person to post here!

Anyway, going to try this map now. I'll edit once I'm done

EDIT: Not done, but I thought that maybe unless if one note is REALLY long (like, more that 5 signs) I would reccomend putting it in the game just to make it easier to read.

EDIT2: Still not done, because I got stuck on where to go next after the forth room on the right in the bookroom, I hit the switch and when I came back out, I didn't see any other doors open.

EDIT3: I figured out the redstone for some reason was broken once and I had to replace it. But now I am stuck again. The door at the back of the room that leads to: 1. an  :D door leading to a small cave with random clay and a waterfall that leads to a furnace with something in it. 2. leads to a wooden door with a room with about 4 zombie spawners, and some furnaces and dispensers. Past that leads to a cave with about 2 spider spawners. But I can't find my way past those two things. Can you help me?
I don't think joining the day before Beta came out counts as being an alpha player...

If you have got to a spider spawner it means you have taken the wrong way and need to go back to find a different route! I will check on my version of the map later to see if the redstone is broken on that too! If it's not then it was probably a creeper's fault!

It couldn't have been a creeper, because it was just one small redstone.

And, does that mean the cave past the furnaces/dispensers is just extra caveness?

The cave past the Crypt(room with furnaces/dispensors) has multiple routes with one leading the correct way!

Ok, got past that, but I have a small thing you may need to fix. I got to the part with TNT, and I blew it up, and nothing appeared. I dug around it and then I found the next passage. So, unless if you had to try and look around for it to appear, you should move the tnt a little.

Good map! I got lost a few times and in the room with the "graves" in it, one of the signs has no writing. I'm not sure if it was intentional, like it's supposed to be you or something. Anywho great job and i like the end :Pig:
There's cubes... deal with it.

Ok, now I got stuck on the part where it says "This cave has no treasure" and then I found the treasure and the sign said "I Lied!". So, where do I go next?

EDIT: Nevermind... I figured it out. Oh, So I completed this, and I give it 26  :Diamond:'s up (if you know what I mean :) )

Thanks for Feedback! I have hopefully fixed the TNT part not revealing the next path and also fixed spelling errors in the Notes! Couldn't find any broken redstone circuit though  :Diamond:

A good long map. It's hard to find a good map like this (there's good ones but it often ends too quickly) I accidentally went in the cobble tower first then realized it wasnt the right one :(

P.S. great ending when i saw it my face slowly went :| :( :D 8D

I have made a prequel to this map called "The Pitch-Dark War" which shall explore the Skeletal Army in more detail! It is however a lot shorter in length but provides a better backstory and has multiple endings in which YOU decide how it ends! I will be releasing it when more interest (if any) is shown in the map!

if it's greek, shouldn't it be the temple of poseidon? or some other water spirit?

You didn't need to quote the entire introduction post but anyway - I didn't want to reference any actual Ancient Greek Culture because I would probably have got it wrong! I will try and elaborate though in my third map called "The Hanging Gardens" which will take place in Ancient Greece where you are a prisoner who has to test out if the palace traps are enough to stop intruders from reaching the treasure room!

I've made a link to your first video and will continue to do so for the rest of your playthrough! I like how you put the notes onto the backgrounds!

This was a lot of fun! A good challenge in some parts.
I only have these to say.
1: When there is a part of the plot thats lesser to urgent messages, please limit them to signs, saves clicking.
2: I'd also like to say that you did supply us with HEAPS of supplies.
Less notes and food/weapons.
Other than that a top level adventure map, excellent plot heaps of action and ingenious traps! KEEP IT UP MAN!!!
