    "A mysterious reality-bender known only as the incarnation of nightmares, Abaddon, has found a small dimension known as "Terraria". It certainly is an interesting one, but it could use a little more... spicing up.
    Thus, he has created gateways from his home world, Syrus, to the land of Terraria - trapping the syrusians in the process. Now, lost and confused in this strange new land, they desperately search for a way home.
    You, the player, must defeat much stronger foes than you have ever faced before. You must find new allies - some who even used to be enemies - in order to find a way to defeat Abaddon and open a gateway back to Syrus. But for now, his shadows loom across the lands Terraria..."

    Thank you for your patience.

    - No severe bugs

    - No severe bugs (except of course Terraria's own instability)

    Mod Conflicts:
    - Even More Modifiers might cause the Prism Break and Eroded Prism to crash the game
    - Player Resource Bars causes Araghur to crash the game
    - Instant respawn and similar mods break our bosses' despawn mechanics

    Other Issues:
    - Trying to load the mod displays "This file was compiled for the HiDef profile, and cannot be loaded into a Reach GraphicsDevice.", this is fixed by navigating to config.json in the ModLoader folder, then enabling support4k and disabling support8k (re-enable support8k if this does not work).
    - Issues with the Staff of Araghur (not fixable due to redcode).
    - Issues with the serpent mount (not fixable due to redcode).

    This seems quite fun. I will try it out later, considering the mod is available for download that is.

    Good looking mod you have here! I am happy to sprite for you if you need any help. By the way, see some PRETTY overpowered weapons there, so while we are at it, why not add another one? Private message me for the idea.

    The grinding for Oblivion bars is generally boring (I ended up hacking it the last bits to craft the summon for Erazor) You need 5 shards for a single bar and you need 20 bars to make some basic items. I don't know if it's just me, but I think you should make it drop in bigger quantities or reduce the amount of shards required for a bar.

    oh i just realised i said Sources and not Browser, my bad! ^-^
    also, i would like to have some spriters, youre in my friend ;D

    also the Oblivion Bars, you might be unlucky with the drops, try to farm them from Solar Eclipses, if you still think the droprate is too low ill change it to 2-4 ^-^

    That's what I did, and I should also point out that in the dark (most of the time you will get them) they are nearly impossible to see. I also tried altars, which would have worked fine if the wraiths actually came up to where I was :D
    And, instead of changing droprate, could you change the required shards to craft from 5 to 4? Y'know, if you want to

    Sounds cool! Mind linking my terraria video in this thread post when I use it in my series? It would help a lot! Like some ppl said, a few sprites need work. But nothing a few resprites can't fix.

    K, I'll take massssssive prep lol. And I haven't used your mod yet in a vid. I'm gonna record episode 4 tomorrow or the next day. Episode 3 was recorded before u asked me to use your mod so it's not in episode 3 which will come out later today. But here's the link to my channel so you can watch for episode 4 to come out (which will guaranteed have your mod in it):


    I think this mod has some potential. Keep it up! (Also if you need a spriter, I might be able to help in my spare time.)
    Also what does the update add?
