Terraria: NPC Competition


So, was just looking through my facebook and noticed that re-digit posted a competition to design an NPC for the new update that they are doing.

Here is the post:

Hey guys! With the update nearing release I thought it would be cool to do another community based contest. This time, we are offering you the rare opportunity to have an NPC designed by you brought to life in the game!

Not good with art? No problem there! Simply give a thorough description of your NPC, and we will have one of our Re-Logic team members bring your vision to life!

Ready to get started? Great…here’s how it will work:
Required for each entry – please use this format to make the review of what we hope will be tons of creative ideas easier for us.

This contest will run until Sunday the 25th.

Here are the guidelines:
  1. APPEARANCE: What does he/she look like? Again, if you are not artistically gifted you may describe the design. If you are able to provide an example of your NPC in sprite form feel free but for legal purposes the final design will be done by a member of Re-Logic with communication from you on the design.
  2. PURPOSE: What is the purpose of your NPC? What does he/she sell or do?
  3. ACQUISITION: How do you get him/her?
  4. DIALOGUE: What is his/her personality and signature phrases? Be clever!
  5. NAMES: What are some names you would like him/her to have?
  6. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT: Be original! Let's not get me sued over this. ;)
Before anyone says it, this will not delay the release of the update in anyway as NPCs are not difficult to add in game. :)

Want to design your own, then here is the link.

The organ donor

Appearance: Old and malnourished and covered in blood.

Purpose: This dodgey dealer likes giving you cash for donated organs.

(everything you donate takes X amount of health from your health bar)

*HEART: donate a heart from your health bar = X amount of coin
*STAR: donate a star form your mana bar = X amount of coin
*EYES: donate your eyes = X amount of coin + impaired vision everything is blurred and or completely black sight is restored after time or if you have lenses in your inventory
*LEG MUSCLE: donate your leg muscles = X amount of coin + movement speed reduced
*ARM MUSCLE: donate your arm muscles = X amount of coin + melee speed reduced

All i can think of in terms of donations just a bit of fun character prob more end game and makes players have to go out in search for heart and mana crystals to replenish their health bar again. The organ dealer does not sell if you donate more than X amount of your health/mana bar this is to stop players from just constantly selling organs to make loads of money.

OR the player can spend money and get Health, mana top-ups, and some temporary buffs. Whatever would be easier to implement

Acquisition: When you have "X" number of health, and have died "X" number of times.


"Psssssssst, mate."

"I like your eyes, can i have them?"

" 89% mortality, better than that nurse though"

ok, dialogue is pretty naff may need to think more on that

Name: Jeff, Lector, Heiter, Szell, Zoid-Berg, (any other names of questionable doctors)
