Building Competition #3: Cave Chronicles (Party at 6 PM CST on Sunday)

Have you ever discovered a cave in Deepworld and thought to yourself, "man, this cave is boring?" Us too! So let's join together for some friendly competition and see who can make the most interesting cave experience. Just like with the dungeon building competition, we will have lots of winners and lots of prizes, and many of the entries will become a part of Deepworld's world generation system!

Building Style:
- The goal is to create a cave that offers an experience, whether that is a puzzle, a challenge, a story, or just something pretty.
- For example: The attached image shows my example cave. It's a crumbled pipe observation station with a skeleton at the bottom. A note is beside the skeleton and says "My dear Adelia, I will always lov-". There is a chest nearby, locked with the password "Adelia".

New Items:
- We will have player-placable notes and password-locked switches/chests very shortly, so feel free to plan for them (you can just include signs stating the intended behavior like I did in the example). They will be fully usable in-game this weekend.

Rules:
- All entries MUST be built in competition worlds only. These will be publicized here and have [Competition] in the name.
- Competition worlds feature green protectors that can be claimed by clicking on them; thus, you can have a protected space to build without having to use your own protector. If you want to do additional entries, you can use your own protectors, or wait for additional competition worlds (you can claim three protectors per such world as of tomorrow - right now, just one).
- Size can be anywhere from small to huge
- The competition deadline is Friday May 3rd at 6 PM CST. Voting will occur over the following weekend and the awards party will be Sunday May 5th at night.

Prizes:
- Grand prize: 500 crowns and a Brass Throne
- Best Of and Popular Choice prizes: 250 crowns
- Top 20: 100 crowns
- Participation: TBD

The first world is "Hayle Glade [Competition]" and is now open. It will become non-premium tomorrow. If you have any questions or clarifications, post here and I'll update the rules.

Let the competition begin!

    Ohh and since sledgehammers don't distress blocks do we get a free hatchet?

    Public world.

    Sledgehammers still currently distress blocks in public Deepworld. Once the update comes out, hatchets will do that. They will be very cheap to craft, though, don't worry.

    I wanted to incorporate some Deepworld lore into my cave, automatically I thought of the fair. I wanted to create the fair lying in ruins after all that occurred. With limited space, I created a booth, and a broken down walkway at the bottom. So, here is my cave!

    In my picture below, caves remind me of Natural History. I then created a crystalized cave with a story of an explorer. My cave represents many explorers around the world doing what they love and desire the most. So hopefully y'all love my cave and happy Competition! :)

    I'm sorry to ask, but premium can come with crowns, correct? If so, how much?

    If it does, I'll definitely participate despite being a noob.
    If I was able to, I would buy premium myself but I can't. Life-Technology complications

    Premium comes with 100 crowns. Also, I think you get a little bit more if you mentioned someone when you registered.

    How many green protectors are there in a world?

    A lot. Don't worry, there won't be any shortage.

    Somewhere around 200 I believe.

    We'll add a way to locate ones that were missed in a couple days, since the last 10 or so might be tough to find naturally.

    Sorry. I meant getting actual premium. Not the crowns that come with it.

    Also, question. Does the cave have to be in one shot?
