The map has a very large download (Having a resource pack and a heavily edited world) and will take a while to download.

According to legend, there was once a corrupt wizard who terrorized the land with his pumpkin-headed warriors. He was called the Pumpkin King due to him being characterized as having a Jack-O-Lantern head, like that of his mutated plant minions. The Pumpkin King wanted control of the entire world, spending tireless hours in his castle's basement to alchemically create the most deadly creatures imaginable. Using the high magical energy of an ancient sorceror's tower, the Pumpkin King grew his ultimate creation in the middle of a freezing tundra, where no one would find him to disrupt his plans - except for one person.

They say that a hero in a dark cloak scaled the icy tower, inside of which they battled the Pumpkin King's most menacing minions, the Pumpkin King's master creation, and the Pumpkin King himself, using the mystical flame sword DeathBlaze. Ultimately, the mutated plant monsters were destroyed, and the Pumpkin King with them. Supposedly, the hero died of his wounds shortly after the battle, and therefore no one knows who they were, and how they knew where to find the Pumpkin King. But that's all just an old story, right?

You are an 18-year-old adventurer who makes a living off looting dungeons and completing quests, native to the cold region of Helmvan.  You have very fuzzy memories of your past, but you do know that your parents died when you were young, so a man named Harry took you under his wing and taught you swordsmanship. Though your home is technically in Helmvan, you spend much of your time wandering about the land. You decide to visit your home town when... what? Do you expect me to finish that? SPOILERS!

About the map:
Legend of the Pumpkin King (LotPK for short) is a lengthy, linear map that focuses on dungeon crawling, inspired from the Legend of Zelda.

Playtime can last anywhere between 10 and 20 hours (Depending on how good you are), most of that time spent inside dungeons. LotPK focuses on its 10 dungeons that get harder as you advance in the map, each with its own customized monsters and puzzles, where you can loot chests and receive legendary items to aid you in your quest. There are 8 unique (And somewhat difficult) bosses that test your minecraft skills such as archery and 1-on-1 combat. It also has 13 short sidequests, including an optional mini-dungeon.
LotPK also has Minecraft's first item conversion system, (As far as I know) which will allow you to place torches and ladders that you craft.

(LotPK has its own resource pack, which is included with the download. It may be updated with the map over time.)

Note: If you find any bugs, let me know immediately! Anything not mentioned won't be fixed! Also, constructive critism is welcome - if you have any recommendations involving story or gameplay, leave a comment!

Does anyone possibly know what you do after you complete the stolen Exports Quest?

I was starting to work on a video guide, but that got put on hold since I had a lot of things come up.

I've had playtesters say things about the tool shop too. It should work if you stand right in front of one of the shopkeepers, depending on which job you took.  If it still doesn't work, then I probably forgot to reset it after testing, so I'll take a look at it.

Okay, if you still haven't found it, then you can download the newer version and the map should be easier to understand.
