After spending the night in the Taiga’s tower, my gear is far too beaten up to risk confronting the goblins again, so I carry on looping around to home again.
Dungeon Pack : I think Dungeon Pack was the source of the Castle of Disappointment. It was probably the victim of some bad timing, in as much as it had only just generated when I arrived, so it had not had a night-time period that would have allowed the spider spawner to put out some minions. Regardless, the zombie spawner was never going to do too well in a roofless building, unless I was foolish enough to attack at night.
Not Dungeonpack’s finest moment, but it does have some pretty good structures that I’ll be encountering before too long.
Taigore’s Inventory Saver 3: Another showing for Taigore’s. I should probably not make a habit of that.
Grimoire of Gaia by Silentine : I think that was the first time I’ve had my head torn off by a gryphon since they were changed to only spawn above a certain height. That’ll teach me to not look both ways before running into my valley.
Grimoire of Gaia mobs often drop small chunks of iron, emerald, or even (rarely) diamond. Once you have enough of them, you can combine them for a full gem. Beyond that, they also have a range of unique drops, so the reward is certainly there to balance out the risk.
