You are alone. Try to unravel the mystery of your existence - and who is the Hobo?
(Bonus: The first ever Survival/Adventure Map without any typos!)
It's Skyblock, but this time you're on land. Sounds easy, right? Guess again. You are in the middle of a desert wasteland with no life for miles. You will have to use your wit and speed to survive this one!
Remember, playing with friends is fun!
Version 1.2.1 Preview:
Do not die! (An honest player plays on Hardcore!)
No item creating mods! (Single Player Commands, Too Many Items, etc...)
Play on at least easy to have access to all the items! (Monster Drops.)

Make a mob grinder.
Make an infinite water source.

Your biggest threat is hunger. Grab the seeds and plant them right away, break the grass around spawn for more seeds. Use the water from your cobblestone generator to water them!
Once you run out of dirt, look around for more! It's out there.
Lava is about a tenth of a kilometer away from you... but it's deep.
It's really hard to stay out at night - remember, there are no caves under the ground. This means that the monsters will come up for a visit... all the monsters.
Actual Hint Spoiler:
The oasis is within 250 blocks from spawn.
Lava is deep. But a staircase from spawn towards the sign should get you to some.

Using mcmmo? I love that mod, but is it the only one? How do the quests work - are they pre-built by you in the map? This sounds like a fun multiplayer night...
Yah I base it on the storyline that there was once a thriving forest and villiage there, and It was cursed with zombie apocalypse! Then it dried up, and the villiage crumbled, but the secrets remained. Quests are specific to jobs. For instance hunters will have tough fighting quests with weaponry rewards, while miners will have more exploratory quests for jewels.

A pickaxe without a miner is useless, but a miner without a pickaxe is nothing!
I'm working on a Let's Play Now. Hopefully, the first episode will be up... say Friday? If you want is sooner, lemme know, but I've got finals.
I'd love for you to make this Let's Play series, but I have the new updated version planned for release for today. Wait for that download link to hit the thread, then take as long as you'd like to make your Let's Play series. Make it one to remember - a good one! Good luck with your finals!
A little ahead of schedule...
Here's episode 1 (May still be processing)!
And yea, I've done a Vanilla LP, but it's still getting up to speed. As always, I'd appreciate constructive criticism! I've been working hard to get rid of software idiosyncrasies, always a challenge in Linux.
[EDIT] There's some sort of letter boxing thing going on. I'm going to fix that and reupload. Sorry about that.
