Text journal for those who could not read the picture:
Will you continue the adventure and the journal? Behold, the pyramid of Minecraft! Inside are treasures beyond your wildest dreams, and traps and challenges that will put your skills to the test! Are you up for the challenge, or will you end up... DEAD!
The game is simple. You are an archaeologist who is exploring the desert to the Great Pyramid of Minecraft. But was it worth it? Go in and come out lined with gold, or die, and your stuff will be trapped in the pyramid... forever!
None! (except don't leave the desert or hack in items. Denying these will upset the gods and you will be cursed!)
Estimated completion time: 1-3 hours
Notable things to know:
-You are allowed to break any block, place anything, craft anything, ect...
-This map is difficult for some and easy for others
-This is one of the scariest custom map in Minecraft! You will be jumping out of your chair
-Recommended for people with brains and that know how to use them
-Recommended that you know quite a bit about Minecraft physics
-The ancient minecraftians are excellent trap makers. Even the most trusted things may be trapped!
-The texture pack is 100% optional. It does not effect gameplay, it is only for a more adventurous and realistic feel
Due to the difficulty for some people on this map, here is "Beginner's Guide to Desert Tomb Raiding".
