Are there any recommended resources past the top 10 results on Google for tutorials or example algorithms for terrain similar to that in Terraria or King Arthur's Gold?

Not sure about those games, but here's a couple articles I keep bookmarked on terrain generation through fractals. The approaches can easily be simplified to a 2D side map instead of 3d terrain.

Pretty much, start learning about fractals if you haven't already. They seem to be the general answer to terrain generation.
