Hello all. I would like to share with you today an idea i recently had. When boss monsters ever become available, how do you think we will summon or fight them? I have an suggestion.

Rarely Deep Underground (or even rarer, above ground), you can find an Ancient Temple. An Ancient Temple can be found anywhere in the world. They are composed of mostly stone bricks and gem blocks (Gold, Iron, Diamond blocks), vines and cobwebs can also be found. But in the center of every Ancient Temple will be an <insert name here>. It could be called a Hell Forge, Unholy Forge, Unholy Altar, etc. and it is used to get something to summon the boss. How will it work? You might be asking, but here's how i imagine it.

HOW TO SUMMON THE BOSS

What's the boss? Lets say something like.... ....a Soul Devourer. So, lets get that summoner.

Your cafting table is ready. Lets take some bones, adn some rancid meat. Turn that into 6 Soul Flesh.

Now, take a Spiders eye, and more Rancid meat. Make a Soul Eye. Then take some teeth (hopefully they get added into the game so this can work) and combine it with even more Rancid Meat. Make a Soul Jaw.

Finally, take some rancid flesh, and whatever pops out of your imagination, and make a Soul Heart.

Now we have just created a "Soul Devourer Doll". Take this doll, and throw it into the <insert name here>. Out will pop a "Soul Devourer Totem". Take this totem to the surface, and place it. Light it with Flint and Steel AT NIGHT. Out will pop your delicious boss.

*OR*

Instead of ending up with the doll, you craft the totem. Then use the hell forge to make the doll. Place the totem, then insert the doll, THEN light it on fire. YOU tell ME what you think. I think this one makes more sense.


SOME SCREENSHOTS

Now for some pictures to help get the image in your head. AND PLEASE NOTE that this NOT totally what i imagine, just something i threw together to help get a visual representation. Enjoy.

CAN YOU INTERPRET IT BETTER?
I would LOVE to see your visuals, art, and crafting ideas for this. What does the Boss Totem look like? You decide!

P.S. Notch, if by some lucky chance you may be reading this, do consider it, i think that its a great way to summon your future baddies :)

I always thought a boss could be summoned same way as a snow golem, but more complex. Maybe some rare item that can be crafted using all of the mob drops.

"After 1 hr of building this giant statue I place the 'Eye of Notch' into the this space..."  
Lightning crashes to the ground all around the statue, followed by big explosion destroying everything in a 20 block radius.  Out of the ashes a giant monster appears...

"OMG what have I done..."
"If it already has been done then it can be done again"  or
"If its a mod its possible to be a feature"

Well, thats basically what i just said. The last part with the Boss Totem. You must first craft a Boss Doll. Throw the Boss Doll into the forge, and get Boss Totem. Place, and ignite the totem. You can make multiple (and stackable) Dolls, but Totems are unstackable.

I was thinking like snow golems where you place specific blocks in specific locations in order to make it.  The only craft-able item would be the "eye of notch".  Though I guess it would be easier to have Totems that you ignite to summon the boss.

The "Eye of Notch" sounds interesting, but... no offense... kinda dumb. Sure, its bound for lulz, but im just trying to be somewhat practical. Can you explain this Eye of Notch? Is it a block or item? How do you use it?

I was thinking of it as a block, holds all the "souls" of the mobs, maybe not exactly call it "Eye of Notch", it would only take 2 bosses to make Notch blind.  Alot movies with summoning of some boss seems to require a gem of some sort and this block would be that gem.

Ah, okay. I see what your getting at. Maybe you make the totem first, THEN the doll? And you would need the doll, or multiple Boss Dolls to complete the totem. So the Boss Doll would be the "gem". What do you think?

Did you say, make the game more like Terraria?

But yeah,I see where you are going, and I hope it's a little more complicated than that, involving potions and stuff like that. Like, you have to drink a "Daisy pusher" (Spawn skeletons and zombies that work for you, normally), but then after you drink the daisy pusher, you use this other thing while it is still in effect to summon the boss.

Woah what? Who said anything about making this game look like Terraria? I heard from several sources Minecraft will have bosses in the near future. So I developed a method on how to summon them. Herpity Darp.

I dunno... seems like it might raise some religous eyebrows... especially mine.

Hm? What do you mean? Its not a voodoo doll. Its more like an Icon. Theres nothing offensive about it, unless your talking about using a demon altar. If you get offended... somehow... in a game like minecraft because you summoned a boss monster, than that's really your fault and you should disregard that and enjoy the game anyway.

Besides, i'm an atheist :P

Well, if Minecraft has bosses planned in the near future, Mojang probably already developed a way to summon them, yet to be implemented, likely to be in 1.10> or the 2.x branch. Derpa-doo.

Okay. What I'M Doing is suggesting an idea of how they should do it. What if they don't have a solid plan hmm? Also, you stills didn't tell me what you meant with the Terraria comment.
