o Now there was in the time of Kronos a law concerning mankind which has remained in force among the gods from that time to this. The law ordains that, when his time comes to die, a man who has lived a righteous and holy life shall depart to the Isles of the Blessed and there live in complete happiness, free from evils, but that the man whose life has been wicked and godless shall be imprisoned in the place of retribution and judgment, which is called Tartarus.o o Gorgias (Plato)

No lights shine in Tartaros. Even on the eve of the Silver Age, when the last Heroes imprisoned the last of the Gigantes under a sky of daggers in the black pit, Tartaros was just a cold abyss of jagged stone spires. No gold was found here. Iron and coal were plentiful, but no gold, no silver, no jewels. A city was built by the Heroes, who swore to forever guard the last Gigantes. The pit became covered in lights, and the city was joyous, and soldiers and adventurers were plentiful, for a little while. In just a few years, the lights extinguished, and the portal closed, and Tartaros turned into just a myth.

By chance, magi of the surface reignited the link, and rediscovered the black pit. A first expedition was called to explore the city, surprisingly intact, and to search for any of the mythic o godso toolso that the Heroes once wielded.

The first expedition went and didno t return.

And so, the trumpets sound for a second band of soldiers and adventurers to enter the pit of Hell.

Additional Notes



1/30/2012: 3rd place is great. I expected Circlelight to take first, anyway.

Regarding the status of interiors and the map: I've been busy lately, and I had been bored of the project for a while, so I don't have a definite timeline on when I will finish the map. But I will be continuing to work on it, though not in any timely fashion.

- - -

(For PMC Caved in Contest)

Completely solo project. I built this to be an adventure map, but I didno t invest enough time to finish interiors and to add mob spawners and loot (IRL and Starcraft took me away). I plan to continue working on interiors and will eventually update, almost certainly when the contest is over.



Lighting? Nope. No open glowstone or torches (redstone torches dono t count). Moody lighting, no fog, nighttimeo the only way to play. Five torches should be all youo ll need, if played wisely ¯_(ã )_/¯

This is fantastic. The gloomy, dark, and depressing atmosphere as well as the execution of the design and theme are captured perfectly in this. Why didn't I say this two years ago?

Tartarus has a couple different spellings since ancient Greek doesn't translate precisely.

Hey, I may be level one (1), so you probably don't care about anything I may say to you.
Me, I personally want to ask if you are still planning on making it an Adventure map, as I can help you.
I've learned how to do a countless amount of things using MCEdit, and maybe some Redstone.
Thinking back to the map *Herobrine's Return*, I believe I know how to do just about everything done in that map.
Well, I said what I wanted, if you don't accept, so be it, your map, your descision.

Wow, this one deserves first place, in my opinion. Great job with originality! I saw way too many dwarven stuff, and also all of the "bright pretty" ones. Anyway, great job on this project, I am now a fan!

Website: www.mctartarus.enjin.com
Here a short description of our server
You walk into a room full of mist and dark. This is Tartarus. We are a 24/7 Ancient Greek Minecraft PVP server set in Tartarus. You can choose a class, and fight to the death with your friends all around the famed underworld. Throw an offering to Cerberus, or stare down the vile Kronos himself!

This should have been first. The project that got first had way too many colours involved. This conveys much more of a dreary world that lies in the mist.

I really love how you used monotone as an effect. When most stuff seems monotone it's usually an accident that detracts from it, you you've actually used it to add to your project! Great job!
