Eye of Cthulhu
Notice! This is a draft!At some point in the Game's progression, you look to the stars and wonder. Later when you have unlocked the secret of flight, you take to the sky...
Suggestions and sprites are appreciated.
Suggestions and sprites are appreciated.
And are disappointed. With version 3.1 looming over our heads, followed by the ensuing Lunar Events and insane Martians, you would think that perhaps these beings came from somewhere, yet Space remains stoically empty. This gap, as many before and after I shall attempt to fill, is the only loose bolt in an airtight game. This is a complex solution, and I apologize for the lack of sprites.
Anything in pink is expert mode only.

The Companions of Terraria
Those whom are familiar with TEdit know that the world that our characters can interact with is somewhat smaller than the actual map size. This could be exploited to the developers advantage, in a way that will soon become clear. During world generation, the limits of the world are created. But what if there where four specialized areas at the top of the world that acted as teleporters to spaces outside of the current map limits. Each would lead to special biomes tied to each of the lunar towers. This could be simply achieved, via creating small maps just outside the main world. The Biome below the Underworld corresponds with the Solar tower, the zone above Space dealing with the Stardust Pillar. The Nebula biome spawns on the side of the jungle, facing the Vortex. Whilst the portals have always been there, the celestial creatures within are more than a match for the unprepared. You are able to discern when a portal is near by a very translucent version of the analogous pillar background being overlaid onto the typical Space background.
The biome of each Pillar contains within all enemies that it has during the event, except the lunar pillar.
Each enemy listed here, unless otherwise noted, drops exactly one gold.
Reduces jump height, and halves wing flight time.
The Solar is a battlefield, where seemingly endless hordes of monsters would spell your doom. Hindering you are lakes of lava and constant meteor showers (Per meteor: 150(200) dmg. The terrain is rarely flat and is deeply scarred, with many short caves leading steeply down. It radiates an intense heat, preventing life regeneration while in contact, and for 25(30) seconds afterward. The ground is littered with charred skeletons, remnants of failed adventurers. Its animated background shows erupting volcanoes, lava flows and meteor showers.
Background and Music
Its animated background shows erupting volcanoes, lava flows and meteor showers. The Music resembles the Lunar boss theme, but sounds harsher. It adds low percussion, and strengthens the electric guitar part.
Description: The Magmatic Being appears to be made of molten stone. It emits a slight reddish-orange glow. The Magmatic Being is four blocks tall.
Behavior: Magmatic beings fiercely defend their spawn-pool, and refuse to go further than fifteen(twenty) blocks from it. When fully submerged in lava, Magmatic Beings regain health at a rate of five HP per second. It is moderately fast. Magmatic Beings will otherwise act like a fighter AI.
Damage: 200 / 400
HP: 1300 / 2600
Spawn: Magmatic Beings spawn in the pools of lava.
Description: A Butcherblaze appears to be a blazing spider with two flaming forelimbs, and the head an torso of a Selenian.
Behavior: Similar to a spider's, but Butcherblazes retreat for two seconds after striking. Unlike many enemies, Butcherblazes can only deal damage on contact with their front half.
Damage: 80 / 160
HP: 800 / 1600
Spawn: Butcherblazes spawn in dark places, in front of a wall.
Description: Char Horrors are flame-bright insectoids, with a pair of horns beneath its chin.
Behavior: Char Horrors act just like a basilisk, but can carry and transport up to two Selenians. While the selenians are on the back of the char horror, they are invincible, with the horror taking damage for them.
Damage: 90 / 180
HP: 1000 / 2000
Spawn: Off screen, surface.
Items and Recipes
Bio-construct @ Gene Splicer
Fiery Eyeballs (6)
Description: Very fast ground-based mount. Can charge like a unicorn mount, but does so in 1/5 of the time. It also deals 3 times as much damage(4 times). The mount looks like a dark green version of the Basilisk, but has four extra eyes, six limbs and spines.
Chitin-scale Armour @ Loom
Any Thread (15)
Any Thread (25)
Any Thread (10)
Description: A mobile fortress, the Chitin-scale armour buffs damage and defense to incredible levels. The Mask gives 45 defense, the Breastplate 55, and the Greaves give 50. Set bonus: +50% melee critical strike chance. Set effect: Crunch sound when hurt and you are followed by an insect swarm. The armour looks like a dull gray praying mantis, except on two legs.
Description: Made from the strongest fragments of chitin, the Carapace Bulwark adds defense in exchange for mobility. The Bulwark gives defense, based on the speed at which you are moving. The slower you are, the more defense it gives, with 40 defense while standing still. When moving faster than 40 mph, it will reduce defense. Formula: 40 - player speed = defense. (No negatives)

Red /Blue flare (10)
Note: Makes ten
Description: A everlasting flare. Lights double that of a standard torch. Used with a Flare Gun.

Old Shoe (1)
Description: A masterpiece of technology, the recipe can only be produced when you have spoken to "The Alien" NPC. The armour is alive, and can be destroyed by damage. It does not provide any armour, instead, it has a HP value equal to 75% of the players life. This regenerates at a rate of two HP per second. Aside from that drawback, the Biotech armour gives fantastic speed (80 / 160) mph and the ability to fly infinitely. The Faceplate gives a +30% bonus to melee damage, the Cloak gives a 40% lifesteal ability with all melee weapons and the Boots allow enemy stomping. When the full set has been equipped, the status message: "The Armour bonds with your Flesh" appears.

The Stardust is a beautiful place, but for the swarms. The ground is not your foe, instead, it is home to burrows, with tiny monsters inside. The terrain is wide and flat, allowing the monsters easy prey. Stars fall from the sky, bursting open to reveal monsters within.
Background and music
The background depicts twinkling stars, with the occasional comet. The music is soft, reorchestrated to include piano and clarinet. It is much slower than the other lunar biomes, but is the same song.
Behavior: Warpers are stationary, and create 1-3 50 (100) HP portals randomly around the screen. These portals spawn a random Stardust-pillar enemy every 3-10 seconds.
Spawns: From fallen stars
