    Then explain me the existence of Dart Traps, Gayzers, Boulders, Super Dart Traps, Flame Traps, Spear Traps, Spiky Ball Traps.
    Ofc they want me to rage at this game if they added such things.

    Thank you for cherry picking three words out of an entire post to take out of context. Those items you listed exist as obstacles, and in literally any other game would not be seen as a troll object. Now, if they all insta-killed you with no chance to even find them, then they'd be IWBTG levels of trolling, or if there was no way to disable them.

    Everyone’s passion for the lore is obvious but certainly there are nicer ways of going about pointing out the issues. I mean, even the nicest post I’ve seen in here about it has been unnecessarily blunt/harsh. Y’all are acting like they said “we’re not releasing any more updates until the community approves of this” relax people, it’s for fun! You know, like a game?

    Pretty sure a simple “that doesn’t make sense because (insert example here)” would’ve sufficed.

    It's odd though - the Hallow is also associated with chaos, one of its underground enemies being the Chaos Elemental. Light mummies and the Dao of Pow also inflict Confusion, but that's a weaker and less exclusive link between the Hallow and anarchy. Its indiscriminate (save for the jungle) devouring of purity and evil biomes in the name of light is essentially its modus operandi.
    The corruption also gives off an air of some kind of order - all the enemies except recently-corrupted wildlife seem cut from the same cloth - brownish, amorphous monsters with no visible organs but eyes and fangs. Sure, it might be decaying, but it's all decaying the same way.
    The crimson is definitely chaotic - most of its enemies look as if the biome would do whatever it takes to survive by infecting other beings, rather than digesting and creating its own legions. Its theme is also more chaotic than the corruption

    The biome suggestions by Zoomo and Tovlyn, in my opinion, frame the different evils in a very interesting way by adding very thematic alternates. Non-canon food for thought.
    Corruption (amorphous darkness) vs Hallow (chaotic light)
    Crimson (fleshy anarchy) vs Cyber (mechanical order)
    Contagion (blooming death) vs Covert (autumnal life)

    Very neat lore. I'm about to basically sum it up but with some more at the end. This is just my take on it and some of you may have other interpretations.

    What I'm gathering from it, is the crimson is something that just sorta exists in the world, except when the corruption is there? These are kinda like viruses, and the hallow is like an antivirus?

    Okay so now the story bit. So Cthulu attacked, and the dryads tried to stop him, managed to damage him, causing him to retreat to the moon so he could regain his strength. But all but one of the dryads died but one, leaving the world vulnerable. The lunatic cultists then enslaved an entire city's worth of people, including the mechanic so she could build the twins, the destroyer, and skeletron prime to replace the pieces cthulu lost, but they were destroyed. The old man was also cursed to watch over the dungeon, until he was freed. After all this, the cultists tried to summon cthulu's army and himself. The cultists were defeated, but not unsuccessful. Cthulu's army stormed the world, until they were defeated. Then he returned. Twisted by the power of the moon, the Moon Lord attacked in a final battle for Terraria.

    Also actually crimson enemies have the same color, looks like they're made from same stuff, why you call this "anarchy" then?
    The fishes also look the same, compare blood feeder and crimtane goldfish to this:
    Also by name of the paintings sold when painter is in crimson/corruption we can see that crimson is somewhat releated to death too. I mean gore = something is killed = death. Also wtf is contagion? It's not even vanilla terraria stuff, we discuss here the non-modded terraria.
    So the crimson is actually just blood'n'gore version of corruption... And stronger so always choose crimson!
    On the other hand, Hallow unlike corruption and crimson is filled with magical creatures while in evil biomes creatures are clearly biological.
    So it's a fair counterpart to both biomes.

    And Skeletron for that matter. Skeletron Prime is certainly not a replacement skull for Cthulu, just a mechanized version of the very human-skulled Skeletron we all know and love.

    We can see, however, that the Moon Lord clearly still has his spine, so it's far more likely that it's the intestines. It would make sense considering it's the mechanized version of the EATER OF WORLDS, and the intestines are part of your digestive tract...

    Oh hey they added a bestiary. Maybe that will clear some things up.
    Correction: They will add a bestiary.

    The lore was well written, but, as aforementioned, has multiple holes.
    -Plantera and the Jungle Temple
    -Where the Moon Lord came from
    -The Mystery behind the Mysterious Tablet
    -WTF is Duke Fishron?
    -Frost Legion, Moon, and Pumpkin Moon
    -Infinate others.

    Thanks Aurora.

    I've just realized something. It says "scraps of information" at the beginning, so there IS an excuse for this lopsided lore. `:naughty:

    To be honest, this is really a great lore for a sandbox game, mostly for Terraria of course ! :D

    Can this be translated into Spanish or can the text be copied to translate it?

    I have a question, on the wiki under trivia it suggests that the moonlord is cthulhu's brother but the lore suggests that the moonlord is Cthulhu himself. Is one wrong and is one right?

    Anyways I think it's neat that they made lore but sadly I made my own lore and I like it better. I may take some of your ideas though, and tweak mine.

    Proto Persona The Destroyer

    The lore on the wiki (which is not an official source, FYI) comes from a joke made by Cenx, that she has since walked back on. The lore posted here is "Official" but has problems. There's really no right answer here I think.
