|“||It looked like a perfect planet. Plans to make a colony ship started that day. But now that we’ve arrived, it’s clear that things are not as they first appeared. A seething, teeming purple biomass covers the surface, spewing forth malign alien entities that cruelly murdered the initial scouts. We aren’t sure if the scans were wrong or if Space Command was just lying to us, but this is not the paradise we were promised.
We’re sending you down to the surface as our last attempt before giving up and taking the Jaded and her colonists back to Homeworld. We’ve got little to offer you besides a glass bioshelter to keep the aliens out. We’re only willing to invest so much more into what will probably be a failed expedition. But if you’re resourceful and lucky, perhaps we can find a way to make this colony work after all.
Blightfall is a combination modpack and adventure map about surviving on an alien planet. It uses magic mods and tech mods to create a novel gameplay experience. Can you survive on a world completely covered by Thaumcraft taint?
|— The official description|
Blightfall contains a very large custom map and a custom storyline created through the use of Hardcore Questing Mode and CustomNPCs. The story is about a character, the player, who settles on a planet intending to colonize it, but discovers that it does not meet the requirements of their colonists, as the entire planet is covered by Thaumcraft 4's Taint. It focuses on exploration and discovery.
