Brief synopsis of the following articles:
- 1.3 spoiler image.

In addition to the exciting 1.3 spoiler, we also have a couple (vague) Terraria: Otherworld spoilers! These pictures were taken during the GDC Expo (more regarding this below) with a normal camera, which is why they're a little blurry. Be sure to click on them to view their full size.
Re-Logic at the GDC Expo - March 7th
We won't be going into this topic too much, so if you want to check out the full thing, please head over here to view and stay up to date on the blog. If you're wondering what exactly GDC is, be sure to visit their website for more information!
"Hello there everyone!
As we mentioned in our announcement for Terraria: Otherworld, members of the Re-Logic and Engine Software teams will be in attendance at this week's Game Developers Conference. We will be spending the bulk of our time camped out in our home away from home (Booth #2230) showcasing Terraria: Otherworld and answering questions from the media and anyone else that stops by. Hopefully, we will be able to squeeze in some "fun" as well. ;)
That said, we got to thinking that vicariously sharing our experiences in a "stream of consciousness" style blog through the week might be fun and allow our larger community a glimpse into what goes on this week.
Whenever we are able (and remember), we will share happenings from the trip here. That could be random insanity, news, spoilers, or really anything. We have no "plan" for this blog thread other than to share the experience with all of you."
With that said, here are a few images of Re-Logic's adventures at GDC:

"Our goal is to have Terraria 1.3 ready for release in June 2015"

Story of the Week
This week's story was created by Qui Devorat! This will be the final part of this series, so enjoy!
Here is this week's story!
As I slid my backpack onto the trader's desk, I ordered him to fill it to the brim with a minishark, a set of gun parts and shark fins. I knew that crafting a Megashark would be a rather hazardous venture. If they saw me with what is practically a handheld auto-cannon that only hardmoders have been able to obtain, they would get suspicious, jealous...
And malicious intentions never end well
Especially for those targeted by it
But these were desperate times,
So time for desperate measures.
A man interrupts my train of thought, inquiring about the weapons I was buying. "By the gods, are you going to war? By yourself!?"
I turned my head to him and murmured to him in reply "Yes. You could call it that."
He could call it that indeed.
TO BE CONTINUED.
