A playwright is someone who writes plays. It combines the words play (a written drama or comedy) and wright (a person who does work on, in this case, plays). Both words a old English, but the first instance of the word playwright dates to the late 1600s.

My Review

This is the seed to play if you want to see all the things that this new update has to offer. There are many villages peppered around the map. I love the flatland desert in this level. It's a really good spot to plant down a castle. There are a lot of waterfalls and floaters on this level. Very scenic. I recommend this seed to all advanced users while I continue my search for something a little more -- legendary.


Well, it doesn't get any simpler than this. The map runs east to west. Dead center is a massive desert with a super thick forest in the west, a nice mountain range in the southwest, and a small bit of ice out east.

[TOP] This is a shot from inside one of a medium cavern showing a lava fall that illuminates two nearby waterfalls.

[ABOVE] Keeping with the lava theme, here is a medium lava fall flowing out of the side of a mountain just after twilight.

[ABOVE] Here is a shot of the largest of the villages. I'm pretty sure this is as big as a spawned village can get without player assistance.

[ABOVE] This really scenic lake is being fed by a small waterfall. This lake is actually surprisingly deep.

[ABOVE] This series of medium and large land bridges combine to create a serious shadow across the terrain. No doubt you're going to find some daywalkers hanging out under here.
