Entry name:   Temple of knowledge and Understanding.

Entry detail:
(this is a lot, so i'll understand if you don't read it all)\

The Temple of Knowledge and Understanding was the pinnacle of an ancient civilisation known only as the Ascendants; whose whole reason for being was to reach the highest scientific level known to any alien. This goal was achieved, and so they began construction of their memorial for the day where they would eventually die from an uncurable disease.

The Temple is the last known remaining structure of the Ascendants, however overgrown  it may be. The structure consists of four towers, many courtyards and one central structure with a pillar. Everything here has a purpose, from the Belltower of Eternal Longevity, to the Pillar of Graceful Understanding. In the Ascendants pursuit for a cure for all disease, they attempted to fill the river with a remedy for all. As the last Ascendant died, the last drop of remedial liquid was poured into the lake, but it was too late.

The Temple is know a memorial for the Ascendants, containing a repository of their entire history and technological advances. Any who can understand the languagte may use it with complete and full authority, in an attempt to prevent the same fate for the Descendants.

Entry name: The Final Sacrificing Temple

Entry detail: 
The Final Sacrificing Temple is the temple that includes four elements, which is wisdom, power, skill, and leader.

This was known as the Final Sacrificing temple because of an ancient hero who has the four elements, as a strong, knowledgeable, and master of battle leader of the people. He defends the people from the 'attack'. As a gift, they made him four temples right after he passed away.

A while after that, the four temples are attacked by the 'attack' with no troubles since the hero passed away. The people has no more hope on defeating the 'attack'. Their only choice is to rebuild the temples into one, and by sacrificing a person, a single person to regain the hero's powers and defeat the 'attack'.

Every time someone comes to the temple, they'll feel more refreshed and energized.
(To tell the truth it looks like some sort of story :l)

Entry name:  Drake Spine Mountains

Entry detail:
The reason that this is called 'Drake Spine Mountains' is because of the shape of the mountains around the map. Their tops have some characteristics that are similar to those of the mythical dragon creature called the Drake.

The most eye catching part of the map is the huge mountain which is home to the wonder of the huge caves. Found inside in a part of the caves is a old abandoned temple, which is thousands of years old, yet still in good conition.

Apart from the large mountain, throughout the map there are also other mountains, and some have caves as well. There is also a river which and its source comes from within the lagre mountain. To top off the realm, there are some decorative trees.

Entry name: Equilibrium

Entry detail:
Many concepts came up in the making of this.
The main, revolving concept is focused around
the idea of having an atmosphere between two
extremes in tempurature.
While the setting is supposedly ontop of a
snowy mountain, the lava that the mountain
contains, is still activating. So essentially,
the top of the mountain has been brought to an
Equilibrium, allowing nature to grow on the tip
of an snowy mountain.

So that theory was there, and other concepts just
lunged in as it went, there is some man-made
work and machinery there, featuring a lift and
an attempt at a steam-based recharger..
It only came to 60% completion.

Anyway, so for what i did get in, just imagine
yet another cavern filled with nature with some
mines and the top iced off with snow and things.

Do you confirm that you have read the rules of the
contest: Yes.

Have you completed your entry and it is ready to be

judge it anyway.

Do you confirm that this entry is all your own work
and not copied or plagiarized from any other person's
work: Nah i took it all from Moufisto.
Yeah it's mine. -.-

Username:    IzaVelox

Entry name:   Cliff-side

Entry detail: There's a lot to this build. When you first enter, to the right is a sea-arch, and to the far left is what happens when a sea-arch collapses, and before that, between the waterfalls, is an older pinnacle eroded and colonized by plant life. There's a cave behind each waterfall. Following the path up leads you through a cave behind the close waterfall, after which you will catch site of a plateau and atop, the home of an ancient tribe in touch with the stars and sky; entrance is through the carved dragon's head.
