It happened almost overnight. When popularity rose once fishing was reliable and efficient, entire populations of fish were erased from existence. Common fish like bass and salmon were history, and sharks became only legends. An entire list of new species were gone as fast as we had discovered them. Fishermen would cast their lines to end up with nothing. Sailors collected only junk in their nets, and traps would come up empty. The days of collecting fish were long gone, and only we were to blame.

This was the beginning of the Void Era. Sea life was nonexistent, and humanity went into a dark and lonely depression. The sky was a constant soup of deep blue and charcoal. Storms became more common. They brought with them razor-sharp wind, cutting through anything and everything. Rain would hammer down constantly, to the point where it would physically hurt to stand outside only for a minute. Civilization would have to travel inland to avoid these monstrosities. At this point, many thought humanity was lost, and they would fade away, just like the fish had done before them. They were surrounded by destruction and emptiness.

On a damp and lugubrious morning, word was spreading of a mystical region out in the northern oceans. No-one knows exactly where it was, but traveling merchants shared tales of actual fish present in its waters. People started to frantically race towards the oceans; towards this magical safe-haven. Ships were loaded up and stocked to the top for yearlong expeditions. Many men would set sail while the women would tend to the children. The sea was utter chaos: men starving, ships colliding into each other, betrayal among crew-mates. Lives were lost due to these unfortunate events, but many more were lost to the cold, unforgivable weather.

After the destructive scramble to this mystical place died down, only a few ships made it to the glaciers. Many of them assumed they traveled too far, and headed in a different direction. Several dozen ships with their crew were left navigating the icebergs. They agreed it was best to work together to increase their chances of finding this fantasy land, so they kept in touch and updated one another on safe passages through the frozen obstacles.

One by one, though, ships lost contact with one another. They were separated, and never saw each other again. It's safe to say that not one of the ships are left sailing, and the determination of finding this beacon of hope died off with the last remaining crew...

1. Find all 20 collectible fish
2. Locate Ug the caveman
3. Discover the reason for the disapearing fish!
(Don't touch the water... it's extremely cold!)


  • Started 12/9/16 - FINished 12/23/16, a span of 14 days
  • Built and shared in 1.8.9
  • While the structures took about 4 days, the glaciers took many more to complete due to lack of Voxel Sniper
  • I have been playing a lot of Dark Souls 3, so I wanted the player to see the large structure in the distance for most of the time adventuring to give it all a grand effect
  • I hadn't planned on entering a contest, but the topic was such a silly and simple idea that I had to. It was fun to come up with ways I could use the building to incorporate fish in the lore

Creator,I am a Chinese and I find your map. It looks very good. I want to repost it to a Chinese MC website,
Of course, I will list your name and translate what you said into chinese.
So could you allow me repost it and create a Chinese link to make more Chinese know it and download it?

Thanks a lot.

BTW, your other buildings are also very good.
May I repost them?
