After following the mysterious map, you're suddenly knocked unconscious and trapped inside an enormous brick pyramid. Quickly realizing that this place is under control of the hostile magician, you have to face numerous challenges in order to regain your freedom. Survive, discover the untold stories about the world and learn your enemy's true motives before it's too late.
The map mentiones and contains several unimplemented or removed features from Minecraft. The lore presented in there is only a fan-made one which may be in conflict with the official lore.
About your character
For years you've been known as a fearless treasure hunter, who would do absolutely anything to find even only a clue to where a new adventure awaits. So when you had received an old map from anonymous source pointing at some pyramid-like structure in the middle of the ocean, without a second thought you started planning your journey to it. Currently with this seemingly golden opportunity slowly rising at the horizon, you're preparing to set your foot on this mighty structure, being completely unaware how dangerous that place actually is.
About your enemy
Taking the brick pyramid as his home, the Illusioner turned it into a maze with various challenges prepared specifically for those who would like to investigate the structure. Despite having a large amout of corridors, none of them apparently reaches the upper floors of the pyramid, where the Illusioner supposedly resides. The reason behind challenging every intruder is unknown, however weird noises coming from near the top of the pyramid have been reported. Notably, none of those who have ever been trapped in there ever returned.
Tips useful during gameplay
The challenges are grouped by the Paths, with each of them being centered around one theme. The Path concludes with a boss fight and successfully completing it grants more valuable rewards as well as the access to the other Paths.
Manufactured differently than regular Eyes of Ender, their true purpose remains a mystery. In the pyramid they're located at the end of each challenge and you have to take them in order to progress further.
After completing one of the challenges you'll obtain a fishing rod. The pool of items has been reduced to prevent obtaining overpowered items like bows or enchanted books. You can only fish out: cod, salmon, pufferfish, tropical fish and kelp.
Custom resource pack
Included in the pack with the map. I would highly recommend use this small resource pack in order to experience to map to its full desired extent. It contains an animated custom texture of Eye of Ender as well as extended version of 'calm4' soundtrack that functions as a boss fight theme, it replaces 'mellohi'.
The map is designed for a singleplayer experience only. Playing it on multiplayer may produce undesired results.
Pretty fun map, took me a few hours. One big problem is the severe lack of food; the only time I had enough food was in the very last part after the key door. The map is also pretty confusing to navigate. I would also suggest putting a large chest in the base room for storage, because you end up with a ton of enchanted books. I did like how there were just enough to put full protection 4 on the diamond armor if you saved all of them, as well as sharpness 5 sword and power 5 bow. Also, if you're going to put that many books, make it easier to get levels. Maybe have them as a reward for clearing rooms. I spent some time trying to grind xp but gave up and gave myself levels (that is the only cheating I did though)
One more thing, I'm at the part where you make the fire resistance/invis potions. I made the invis potion, drank it, and the effect never came. I was still on fire and had fire resistance from the previous area. I kinda cant progress cause gamemode is locked even with LAN world on. What do I do?
