Biome Lore[edit | edit source]

Void[edit | edit source]
The Void is a strange location made by Oblivion so that he could rest somewhere. At some point, the Fulgurians wanted to research the void, and so Oblivion killed them.
The Terrarium is where the now dead Heart of the Nature resides.
Mire and Inferno[edit | edit source]
There were once 2 civilizations, one was built on a mountain, the other around around a lake. These two locations developed into large towns. The mountain town focused around blacksmithery and worshiped Akuma, while the lake town was centered around fishing and worshiped Yamata. One day, the gods made appearances to them and attacked the towns. They killed all but one member of each civilization. They are known as the Travelling Merchant and The Samurai. Now, Yamata and Akuma rest, waiting for a worthy opponent.
The Pit is a structure being built by Lucifer and his followers. Only he and his followers know what that place will be for. Want to know? Too bad, you have to wait until they finish it.
The Acropolis is the fortress of Seraphs and their beloved queen. If you are airborne, you can make your visit and even worship her. But don't try to interrupt the playtime of Seraphs, as they are fragile emotionally, and they can call their queen like how a child calls their mother when they need help.
The Cavern of the Worm King is the home to Scavengers and their king. There are rumors of treasure that can't be found anywhere else, so elusive that people would sell their souls for it, But beware while treading the caverns, as opening even one chest wakes the deadly king up and he can strike you at full force, which can lead you to become his meal instantly!
The Equinox Altar is a mysterious location found in the far ends of Terraria's skies. Only few Terrarians have seen it, but none except one have returned to tell the tale. According to the survivor, there are 3 slots that can contain certain objects. The one on the left was shaped like a shining star, the one on the right was shaped like a literal planet with moons. The one on the center was shaped like a worm, possibly an idol to worship the gods of time. And there is only one person known who has the final idol: An ancient guide who treads the deserts...
A bizarre shrine indeed... It appears as if a Terrarian managed to build this here along with statue of... something not from this world. Whoever that was... Nobody knew him or even saw him. But that crystal... It might give clues about who they could be...
