Sprites Yuyu's Minibiomes: The Dark Sepulchre

    Hey, gang! Yuyutsu here, and I'm back with another one of:
    Yuyu's Minibiomes!

    Now, I love making underground microstructure suggestions for Terraria. In fact, I already have! To understand why I'm fascinated with the Terrarian underground/cavern layer, take a look at the following minimap.
    The Terraria Underground is vast, and has so much potential! Yet, it seems to be wasted by large pools of water, multiple Underground Cabins(which are really cool, but get monotonous), and a bunch of stone, with, pretty much, nothing else. That was only a small section of a Medium World. The aim of my Underground suggestions are to turn the aforementioned minimap into a diverse image that is truly unique around the world. So, let's begin with:

    Dark_Worm (1) (2).png The Dark Sepulchre 202671-1df693c207f5556b1f65623adb4ea695.png


    The Dark Sepulchre is a small microstructure that generates at the Cavern Layer of a Terrarian world. The Sepulchre will be far rarer than Underground Cabins, but will not be super uncommons- you'll be able to find a couple on your Spelunking run.

    The Sepulchre is a rectangular room composed of Titanstone Blocks and Walls (these are really cool Blocks that I've never heard about, and I thought they fit this aesthetic nicely). The interior will be filled with Cursed Pots (see below), Books, and Green Banners. Towards the end of the room, a Dark Chest will be found, illuminated by two Cursed Torches. I'm using a lot of vanilla tiles as part of the Sepulchre's design, but my inspirations comes from, surprise surprise, a Starbound biome. Let's take a look at some of the modded tiles that can be found in the Dark Sepulchre.

    Dark_Worm (1) (2).png
    Cursed Pots
    Similar to other Breakable Pots, except their green eyes glow to make them stand out.
    Loot (any one of these, or Vanilla Pot loot):
    Dark_Worm (1) (9).png Crypt Arrow 10-20
    Dark_Worm (1) (2) (10).png Accursed Round 10-20
    Dark_Worm (1) (2) (13).png Cursed Candy

    Breaking Cursed Pots may spawn 1-3 of the following Critters:
    Dark_Worm (1) (13).png Dark_Worm (1) (14).png Dark_Worm (1) (12).png

    Dark Worm, Decrepit Glob, Cursed Cranium, respectively.

    Dark_Worm (1).png
    Accursed Chest
    Primary Loot:
    Dark_Worm (1) (8).png Staff of the Dark Magus- 50%
    Dark_Worm (1) (10).png Necrotic Pendant- 50%
    Secondary Loot:
    Dark_Worm (1) (9).png Crypt Arrow 20-40
    Dark_Worm (1) (2) (10).png Accursed Round 20-40
    Misc. Vanilla Gold Chest Loot

    Opening the Chest for the first time spawns 2-4 of the following:
    Dark_Worm (1) (2) (14).png

    Wailing Skull (Pre-Hardmode)
    Wraith (Hardmode)


    The Dark Sepulchre doesn't have any special effects. It is simply a new structure.


    The Sepulchre adds 1 new Enemy and 3 new Critters. None of them spawn naturally.
    Dark_Worm (1) (2) (14).png
    Wailing Skull
    32 HP / 4 Defense / 24 Damage
    Lobs Cursed Flame at the Player. rarely Flies through walls, like a Cursed Skull. 2-4 Spawn upon opening an Accursed Chest for the first time.
    Dark_Worm (1) (2) (13).png Cursed Candy- 20%

    Dark_Worm (1) (13).png
    Dark Worm
    5 HP / 0 Defense / 0 Damage
    Acts like a worm. Lingers for 5 seconds before dissipating into shadowy dust. Spawns when breaking Cursed Pots.

    Dark_Worm (1) (14).png

    The following items are found by breaking Cursed Pots and looting Accursed Chests, or by other methods:

    I managed to make a mock-up of what the Dark Sepulchre would look like in-game with a hint of coding and building. Hope you like it!

    That's all I have for today, guys! I hope you enjoyed another one of my Minibiomes. Comments? Questions? Suggestions? I'd love to hear it! Thanks for reading :D

    I like this quite a bit. The sprites are all great! I think the structure would benefit from being built from something new instead of Titanstone. That might just be me wanting more for the glowing green aestetic, though. Do the critters have any potential for fishing?

    I'd make my own tile, but I'm a bit lazy when it comes to spritesheets like those. However, I did forget to add bait powers for the critters! Added them now.

    The underground is so boring, having a lot of small but variety of underground gen would freshen up venturing the mining experience. Do more please.

    This looks pretty great! The underground could use something like this to make mining trips more exciting.

    Thank you guys! Spelunking shouldn't have to be a chore when there's always something new to find.
