Craving for Caves

Hosted by Fwob with Kitasia, Killerloose and Salvatrix on 29th February 2020

On the 6th December 2019 Fwob made a post on the forums announcing a Cave Dimension Building competition..

Caves, caverns, grottoes, bunkers, underground rivers or houses, rock overhangs, you name it, it’s all good. Well.. I’m trying to sound inclusive here, but we also have to appreciate that a cave is still essentially a cave!

Players would have 3 months to build their Cave themed dimension, with a live stream to tour and judge them all happening on the 29th February 2020. The main competition was for new builds only, there was also a bonus side competition for peeps to submit existing builds.

Videos of the stream by Fwob

The winners were all announced at the end of the you tube upload video and on the main forum thread.

Screenshots below!

On this page you will find a list of all the Dimensions with a few screenshots of each one and details of where to find them in game.
The Dimensions are listed alphabetically by shard.

The very best thing about Dimensions is that they are 3D, you can walk around and through them, thus a 2D picture will never do them justice, you should always pay a visit to the Dimension yourself!

From a separate forum post.

“The Strazeri, once a proud and productive people, have fled their home of generations in fear. Fleeing, terrified of the natural wrath of the volcano they foolishly awakened in their quest for advancement and growth. Their continuing journey takes them deeper and deeper into the bowels of the volcano, fleeing the encroaching and devastating lava that threatens to entomb them all and wiped them from existence. With their very survival in question, join them in their Odyssey to the deepest depths of their known world and pray they find their way to safety and freedom from the evil they have brought unto themselves….”

Killerloose’s Choice

Shard: Laethys
Dimension: Tulan

Favourite pasta shape: Mandala

Run the gauntlet of spinning blades to find the beautiful shining cavern within. Keep finding those hidden paths!

My dimension is based on Mayan mythology as described in the “Popol Vuh”. (I will try to keep this short.) Ruled by death gods and their helpers, Xibalba, “place of fear”, is the name of the Mayan underworld, a place beneath the earth. Despite being ruled by fearsome gods, Xibalba was once a place of greatness and its inhabitants received offerings from the people who walked the earth, above.

The entrance to Xibalba is believed to be through a cenote, a surface connection to a subterranean body of water, which may or may not be linked to an active cave system. The path to Xibalba is rife with tests and traps such as a river filled with scorpions. Xibalba is home to at least six deadly houses filled with trials. There is a “Dark House” that is completely dark inside, a “Cold House” filled with icy cold and hailstorms, a “Jaguar House” filled with hungry jaguars, a “Bat House” filled with terrifying bats, a “Razor House” filled with spinning blades, and a “Hot House” filled with blazes and dazzling bursts. The purpose of these houses was to either kill or humiliate people placed into them if they could not outwit the test. I combined a few of these ideas into distinct areas: the river of scorpions and the Jaguar House became my river of hellbugs, and the Dark House and Bat House were combined. Other areas I kept separate: Cold House, Razor House, Hot House.

Xibalbans enjoyed the worship and offerings of surface dwellers. In my “Dark House” I added a portal to the final destination with offerings to the Rain God, and at the bottom of my cenote are the remnants of offerings.

The downfall of Xibalba came about at the hands of the Maya Hero Twins, Hunahpu and Xbalenque, who later became the sun and the moon. My dimension portrays the way to Xibalba prior to its downfall.

Crystal Mine Cavein

Shard: Wolfsbane
Dimension: Harrow Crypt
Owner: Zornar

Favourite pasta shape: Rotini

Watch as the boglings mine the crystals!

Background on Crystal Mine Cavein
From the Diary of Bilbo Bogling

“We couldn’t believe our luck when we cleared the collapsed tunnel and discovered the legendary Crystal Mine still filled with valuable crystals. We found the skeletons of the miners who had been trapped and worried about how they had died. We soon found out when the giant cave spiders attacked, killing one miner and cocooning others. The cocooned miners are being treated by the nurses. Good thing we brought the laser.

The chefs found the spider meat was a good supplement to the dwindling meat supply. The previous miners left behind a still that brewed an emerald liquor from the crystals. Most of us soon became addicted to it because it greatly increases strength and stamina, allowing us to work harder and much longer. The pace of work keeps the blacksmith busy sharpening and repairing the pickaxes and other tools.

When a cave-in trapped us too, we were confident we could dig themselves out with our automatic drill, diamond-bladed, motorized saw and manual labor. We will be rich if we do get out but I’m not so sure. At least we won’t suffocate because there is a good supply of fresh air coming from somewhere.

When I discovered a hidden pond filled with fish deep in the mine, I abandoned my mining duties to fish and live by myself. I like the fish much better than the spider meat.”

Note: The red spheres in the lower part of the mine are a guide to points of interest. Three spheres close together indicate a branch point.

As history will remember the Strazeri decided to build their civilization inside a dormant volcano. After milennia passed, they began to experiment with geothermal energy which led them to harnessing the power of the magma from the volcano. Harnessing this deadly and natural energy resulted in the volcano to once more become active after so very long, thus forcing them to flee and leave everything they knew and built behind. Journey in wonder as their legacy burns…

Escape from Halloween

Shard: Wolfsbane
Dimension: Harrow Crypt
Owner: Unka (Zornar)

Favourite pasta shape: Rotini

A cave full of Skeletons and fire! Follow the skeletons as they make their way to the celebration area!

The cemetery was under siege by giant cave spiders so the caretakers put up giant cauldrons of poison to block the spiders, and hopefully kill them. It worked for a while as evidenced by some dead spiders in the cauldrons. Cemetery visitors used the jump pad to reach the walkway over the cauldrons. The spiders eventually tunneled around the cauldrons and invaded the cemetery. You can see lots of spiders surging out of the small tunnel on the cemetery side of the cauldrons. All the caretakers and visitors were killed as evidenced by piles of corpses and hanging cocooned humans, the latter especially in the elevated mausoleum.

The dead then rose from the grave, as skeletons with pumpkins heads, (the Halloween tradition for Rift) to kill the invading spiders and burn the nests. Many of the skeletons eventually tired of the hordes of spiders and trekked out of the cemetery to “Escape from Halloween” through Death’s Door.

The intent was to keep it as dark as possible for all the glowing Halloween decorations and give the atmosphere of a cave. The Pitch Black Sky Projector provided the low light and Izbithu’s Demise dimension provided the cave-like setting. In the polar climate found above ground in Izbithu’s Demise, it even makes sense to have a cave cemetery.
