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

Paths
[1.16.2] Illusioner's Fortress v2.0 Minecraft Map

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.

Suspicious Eyes

[1.16.2] Illusioner's Fortress v2.0 Minecraft Map

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.

Fishing

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.

Just finished playing the map. I loved it!

As some helpful feedback, one bug I noticed was in the Magic Path when you're solving the invisible and fire resistance puzzles. If you don't grab the suspicious eye at the end of either one (I've only seen this happen with the invisible path, but I'm assuming this applies to both), it will of course keep you trapped until you've actually grabbed both. However, the real problem is that if your potion effect is still active, you have the ability to get more ingredients and brew extra invisibility or fire potions before going back to grab an eye.

Next to playing Herobrine's Mansion a while ago, this may be my other favorite adventure/puzzle map. I liked how you kept all the boss fights and paths unique, especially the fight at the very end. Awesome work!

This is a cool map! The effects and puzzle mechanics are well executed. Though I'm currently stuck on the magic path trying to figure out what the room with the allium ingredient is. Could this be a find the button level or something?

Ha, I forgot to grab it on that level. I didn't even realize I needed to use an invisibility potion and just used the defender's shield while dodging the wither skeletons!

You have me stumped on that secret potion room in the arena from when you've already beaten the magic path. I can see the lever opens and closes the piston exit to an old puzzle, but I don't see its purpose aside from getting you good potions. I'm also not getting the whole snowman and turtles thing.

There was an issue with the snowman challenge in older versions of the map, where the snowballs would stack up. Naming them can solve that problem and I didn't want to type some nonsense so I put a hidden message in there. It doesn't affect the story or gameplay in any way :)
