I love skyblock. I love fan fics. So i decided to combine the two into an epic, survival, skyblock-ish adventure.
So here begins Steve's quest on everyone's favorite sky island!
Good, no problems with the download, I spawned normally. I waited a moment while the chunks loaded. Well, there wasn't much to load. Just some small, 3X3X3 hunks of dirt with a tree and a chest. I just wanted to avoid lag. As I waited, I wondered if I could complete the challenges given on the forums. All of them would have sounded easy if this were a normal world. This was not. This was a place where dirt was valuable, where falling once could result in failure, and where one mistake could spell doom.
This was Skyblock.
"Alright, chunks appear to be loaded. Let's get started," I said to no one. No one but me, of course. I peeked in the chest. 12 pieces of string, a bucket of lava, a bone, wheat, a red mushroom, 2 blocks of ice, pumpkin seeds, a brown mushroom, a slice of melon, and a cactus block. I closed the chest and walked to the tree. Six blocks tall, with three exposed logs. I began to punch it. Isn't that how everything begins?
I was not scared that I could punch wood with no pain, nor was I surprised when the blocks just floated. I was used to this. I was used to blocky worlds, too. And not only was I used to pixelation, I embraced it. I had removed the three originally exposed blocks when I realized that I should remove the leaves first. I punched the leaves in front. Oddly, no saplings. I went around to the back. It was difficult punching in the one-block wide space. After I had trimmed a few more leaves, a sapling fell out, and I walked backwards to grab it.
That's when I fell.
I plummeted down into the emptiless void. I watched as the last heart of my health was destroyed, along with three pieces of wood. Death Count: 1. I respawned and moped for a minute. Then I said to myself, "No sense crying over every mistake. You've got work to do, Steve!" And there was.
I harvested the two remaining pieces of wood, and got a one sapling from the leaves. Well, it could be better. Or worse. But mostly better. I then preceded to dig out the pits for the cobblestone generator. I put the lava and ice in so that I could get to work on the first challenge once I was ready.I crafted a work bench, then a wooden pickaxe, with two sticks left over.
Now it was time to retry tree farming.
I placed the sapling in front of the chest. This was my last hope. I took the bone out of the chest and crafted it into three bone meal. I hessitantly clicked on the little tree. To my relief, it grew fine. A healthy, five-block-tall tree. I trimmed the leaves and received five saplings. I stood a moment in thanks for this wonerful harvest. Then I retrieved the four logs. I stored them in the chest then went to the cobble generator.
I took out the pick I made with the original logs. I broke the ice and watched as it made stone. I began to harvest it when I relized that it would be more effectient to collect the lava first. I grabbed the bucket and scooped it up. Then I noticed that it was night, and the lava had been lighting things up. So I put the lava back, so I could see what I was doing.
Then I got hungry.
My hunger bar was down to five points. I was half-way to starving. I needed food. I scrambled towards the chest. Melons. Yes. Melons would do. I took out the melon and made seeds. Then, I made a hoe. I quikly ran to the cobble generator and tilled the dirt next to the water. I then proceeded to plant the seeds. I decided I would save bone meal for trees. It would take a while without it, but hopefully the melon would grow before I died of hunger.
The sun came out, and I continued mining stone now that I didn't need lava light. I hate working in the dark. I only do it when nessesary. I could walk off the edge, or drown. As I mined, I shuddered at those thoughts.Once I had about a stack of cobble, I stored it in the chest. Finally, I could start building my world, my way. I raised my pick up with pride.
