Since last time I made no progress towards, well anything really, this time I’m going to endeavor to fight the horrors of the night. My goal: string for a bow and some gunpowder for TNT. Why TNT? Why not TNT?
The night started off incredibly uneventful. I stood on my walkway, looking into the dark of the night for creepers, zombies, skeletons, spiders, anything to fight. I finally decided that hiding on my well-lit walkway was probably not the best way to bring the undead in. Are creepers undead? I think they are.
I wandered into the night, unable to really see much at all. Finally, it happened. I heard the tell-tale growl of a zombie.
One, lone zombie? That’s it? That’s not much of a challenge now is it? I fileted him on the spot and moved on.
You can hardly see it here, but I’ve found a creeper.
Correction, I’ve killed a creeper. Gunpowder! Hehehe….something’s getting blown up. While TNT is nice and all I still needed two more string for my bow, since that was really the reason I was out here.Ah! Over there! Two spiders!
One dead spider!
TWO dead spiders! Ahahaha!!! (cue cheesy thunder and lightning) Now we’re in business! Come tomorrow morning I’m going to pop back in my house and string together a bow. For now though, there are more baddies to kill.
Headed towards my house I noticed that the moon was disappearing behind my home. The night was short and really unsatisfying. There was so little to kill! I began to head back towards my abode.
Ok that’s more like it. I back peddled from these approaching abominations and carefully picked them off with my iron sword. By the time they were dispatched, the sun was rising.
What the hell; one more spider for good measure. Having killed another spider during the night that I didn’t cover here, I now had enough string for two bows. Maybe a dispenser is in my future.
It’s time to head home for the day. I had my string, and I’d gotten 8 units for gunpowder during the night. Something was getting blown up, but I haven’t decided on what just yet. There’s a gravel pit east of my house, so maybe I’ll blow that up to try and bag a handful of flint the easy way.
So now I’m armed and ready in case of underground confrontations. Now I need to bolster home defense and scour my mine for the rare minerals I need to build my portal. I hope I don’t get distracted again.
That would be terrible.
