I was thinking to get a meteorite, so i smashed what i thought was an orb in what im guessing is the corruption. When i did, i got the message of "a chill went down your spine" or something like that.

I went looking for my meteorite and its nowhere to be found. I have a skybridge connecting two of the floating islands, but i searched up and down the whole place and no meteorite. I havent killed the eye yet, but i could, ALSO, how hard is it to get one of those demon alters, everytime i attack it, it does massive damage to me.

Did you get a message saying, "A meteorite has fallen/landed"?

As for your second question about the demon altars, you can only smash them after you defeat the wall of flesh and obtain a pwnhammer.
Keepin' it classy.

if you break 3 orbs eater of worlds will spawn. killing it will get you the next level ore for a pick/things.

no i did not get a message saying a meteorite has landed. one more question, what happens when the people(merchant, nurse) staying with you die?

and thanks for those quick responses :)
