One time I was on my way to my nether fortress. I was building a huge netherrack bridge. One time I was sneaking around on the edge and the block I was standing on burst into flames. I fell off. Into lava.
3) Don't build your bridge ON the lava, build it ABOVE the lava. And either way, Fire Resistance potions will be your friend, because lest a ghast knock you off your bridge, you've got to act fast or there goes another wonderful inventory.
Spent about an hour adventuring in the Nether for a fortress, finally found it. Fought my way in and obtained some nether wart and 5 blaze rods. Seeing it as sufficient for the day and marking the location I set out on the 500 block return trip(last direction I looked for the fortress) About 3 blocks outside the fort I realized my rushed mistake and immediately got shot at by a ghast and some blazes hiding on the fort. In my blind rush to get to saftey I smacked a pigman upside the head with my sword... I had no fire resistance potions and iron armor with a diamond sword. It was a slightly infuriating Nether adventure, plus the fact I lost all my stuff
That's a little odd. The chunks didn't save, but your cousin's position over the lava saved?
Chunks are in region folders and position is in level.dat, it makes perfect sense actually!
