Picture El Capitan in Yosemite, except shaped like an hourglass. The first thing I did in this Minecraft world was scale the cliff up to the narrow part in the middle where I started constructing my home far away from the terrors below.
I’ve since built a greenhouse on the top of the rock formation, planted a few trees to make it feel homey, and put up fencing to help me avoid taking a three second tour of the valley. I often climb up there to watch the sunset and gaze down at all the torches I’ve littered around the landscape to chase away the creepers and other nightmarish creatures that haunt my dreams.
My next self-appointed mission will be to track down some chickens. I’m running dangerously low on feathers for arrows and I need to find a way to corral and breed a few birds. I think there may still be some to the southeast.
