Wayward Wonders is an open world “Complete the Monument” map with elements of both survival and adventure. The player(s) must explore the land to defeat the evil bosses that have taken over the Wonders of the world.
There are two monuments: The Adventure Monument (12 blocks) and the Wool Monument (15 blocks).
Each block of the Adventure Monument is tied to a major location on the map. At each location is a beautiful Wayward Wonder of the World that has fallen to forces of evil. The player(s) must defeat all foes and return all the blocks to the monument to cleanse the land and the Wonders that stand upon it.
Completing the Adventure Monument allows the player(s) to access the final battle and block.
Each placed Wool Block gives the player(s) a random bonus reward item of high value. Wool Blocks are also tied to random locations scattered across the map.
Pick a direction and go! The map is designed to be vanilla Minecraft but with random events and amazing locations to discover. No single playthrough will be the same, and every player’s experience will be different (think Skyrim or Fallout style, but in Minecraft). You will not find all the special items or secrets, but that is the point. Some will take a few hours to play the map and some will be at it for several weeks. Make it what you want.
The map is made up of several landmasses. The Wayward Desert is dry and brutal. Water, soil, and trees are extremely rare and tough creatures are everywhere. The other continents are not nearly as dry but have their own challenges. Wayward Wonders, Wool locations, dungeons, temples, villages, and Spirit Stones are scattered across the whole map, in no particular order.
