This challenge is a variation on the nomadic play style. I’m using the seed Nomad but you can use any seed you want with the exception of 404. You are a wandering nomad in search of a roaring campfire. Unfortunately, Minecraftia’s wood is too brittle to burn the whole night through. You can break it with your bare hands for goodness sake! So it is time for a quest… a quest for fire!
Bravely you shall cross mountains, deserts and tundra in search of the deepest caves, never pausing to sleep and killing all who stand in your way. In the bowels of Minecraftia you shall gather the materials for a Nether Gate and steal immortal fire from Hell itself! Why? Because you’ll do anything for smores.

Ghasts want to steal your smores! Kill them all! +5 points per Ghast
Click the spoiler for shelter examples. These should give you a basic idea of what you can build though you don’t have to follow them exactly.
This was your first shelter in Minecraft. It will NOT be your shelter here. This challenge is designed to keep you exposed to the elements.
Now how are the monsters going to get you way up there? Come down, silly!
This is your basic shelter. You can make it out of any material. When you leave the area you can either leave it standing or take it with you. I’m using a jack-o-lantern as my campfire. Real campfires are for winners only.
Natural caves make great shelters.
Or you can carve your own shelter in the side of a cliff. Just keep it shallow, no more than 4x4.
This shelter is for MEN and MANLY WOMEN. No walls, no roof – just you, a torch and your sword. Good luck!
