Welcome to my blog about my rambling adventures in the rich and exciting world of Minecraft

Hello! I'm back! Bloody capped internet... Anyhoo I thought I'd take a break from my odyssey to show you a video I think sums up minecraft pretty well! More news on my progress will follow soon. (I now have a second floor!)

 My Island mine, lots of coal so far and enough iron to make a sword and bucket, one I hit bedrock I'm going into branch mining mode to search for diamonds!
Island fortress 2.1, with (finally) completed outer walls and more light to ward of the super wave of mobs that assaulted me the first dozen nights! It has been a harrowing journey and next on my agenda is to start a greenhouse garden to supply me with bread, and a indoor pool/bath on my planned second floor which will conveniently supply me with fish for an added boost to my diet!
Currently I am in planning mode, hence the lack of progress + work has been hectic lately!
Will update soon!!

Pictured: the spiders on ONE side of my house, not to mention the sulfur from the 4 creepers who I thankfully could take a swing at while they bounced below me. I also discovered that morning that spiders if you hit them right can fly back onto another spider, making them high enough to jump over your spider proof wall and precede to take almost half your health before they finally die!

first look at "hell Island"

So named because I quickly realized that if you are on a island in the middle of the 'sea' in minecraft and night falls, the hoards of the night come at you in a relentless attack until morning, whereupon you must crawl from your hole in the ground (apologies for no pictures of my first shelter, I was too busy fighting off a creeper sea invasion) this is my first substantial shelter, modified of course to stop those damn spiders from crawling right in and mauling me in my sleep!
*Note the unfinished walls to the sides, those are no longer there, I'm torn between who I hate more, spiders or creepers!
