Greetings and salutations, people of Minecraft Forums.
For those of you who know me, you may remember I had made a "backstory" for Minecraft's history. I left some things unaddressed, so I'm here now to re-write the old story, and later I'll add some Character Logs.
Now that that is out of the way...
Hello, and welcome viewer to my tale. I have researched as much as I could, and have let my Imagination fill in the gaps. I will be explaining Minecraftian lore in this. Be warned, this is a literal wall of text. Also, this is my opinion, not facts, please do not mistake it as such.
In the year 2000, a new planet was being prepared for colonization. We, the Earth, sent a crew of 50 men and women to colonize the strange cube planet. Unfortunately, all of the men and women were affected by the strange atmosphere in which they were forced to live. Not only did this planet have a Sun and Moon, the planet rotated around the sun extremely quickly, causing the sun to set much faster than what they were expecting. The landscape was blocky, and hostile. Strange cube-like animals roamed far and wide. The gravity also was much stronger than the Earth's, so soon the colonists were much too weak. We did have communications with the colonists, though.
6 years passed, and the next generation of colonists found a new struggle to deal with. Darkness, as it seems, has developed a unique effect on an odd insect known as the Sulpher Bug. The insect grew and morphed into a tall, bipedal creature. This creature, known by the colonists as a Creeper because of it's habit of sneaking up on them, contained a sac of Sulpher and a nerval cord extending from it's brain to the sac. With a simple thought, an electric spark is sent to the sac, exploding the contents in a nasty blast. On the flip-side, however, the Creeper emits a hiss when preparing to explode. The Creeper also can stop the spark mid-travel if the victim is too far away for the blast to reach him/her. Also, the darkness revealed two monstrous creatures that resembled cube-ish humans. One was the most resembling a human, a carnivorous creature with green skin, but had muscles and bones. These creatures weren't particularly fast, and so in a flash they were named Zombies. The second humanoid creature looked similar to our human Skeletal system, but in fact the bone was a second skeletal system, almost like an armor, if you will. The "armor" also functioned as a skin to hide a thin, but dense amount of muscle and the real bones. The Skeleton, as it was appropriately called, had an advanced degree of intelligence and could produce a peculiar substance from its forearm. The Skeletons wielded Bows and could create a near-perfect replica of Arrows in infinite amount. Finally, the darkness morphed two kinds of arachnid, both being Spiders. One was a large black Spider that hunted in a similar fashion to our earth's Wolf Spiders, these were simply called Spiders. The second was a smaller blue-black spider that could create webs to ensnare prey. These spiders did not need to rely on these webs however, and could hunt down prey on their own. These were known as Cave Spiders, for they would only be found in caverns.
Finally, the colonists aborted the mission, but instead, 3 years passed, and NASA created their first artificial life-form. NASA then recruited 50 new men and women to recolonize the planet. How? By transferring the colonist's soul into the life-form. After all 50 men and women agreed, the colonists were then transferred into their new bodies. These new bodies were cube-ish to match the planet's style. Also, the bodies were much stronger than a normal human body. Finally, these bodies could use Alchemy, which was jokingly dubbed "Crafting". With this, The colonists could combine raw materials to get new materials much faster than the previous colonists could. In addition, the bodies could create a small pocket dimension in which they could store materials and tools. With all of these, the Colonists, led by Markus Persson and his brother, Steven Persson, set out to re-colonize the planet now known as Minecraft. The colonists spent several years on this planet, their bodies un-aging. Half of the colonists were sent to populate the surface led by Markus Persson, nicknamed "Notch" , while the other half was sent to create a laboratory underground, these were led by Steven Persson. This laboratory was named, "The Stronghold", and was used by the science division of the colonists to create new tools and weapons for the surface-dwellers. Whilst mining, Steven Persson discovered that an odd dust known as Redstone had special electrical properties, and could be used for circuitry. The scientist also tasked themselves with creating new life to help them with daily tasks. They crafted special Cages with which the scientists formed the life. Through trial and error, one of which created green blob-like Slimes, the scientists created Horses, Cats, Wolves, and other animals to help them. In addition, the Colonists led by Steven created an odd Metallic ring, which can send knowledge of how to craft an item created by the scientists to the Colonists above. When Steven found that monsters were becoming a nuisance in the Stronghold, Steven created an insect known as Silverfish to defend the Stronghold from the monsters, and Iron Golems to protect the Colonists above. Unfortunately, In 2010, disaster struck. Steven returned from mining to the Stronghold to find it overrun with monsters and all of the Colonists working in it dead. Steven fought his way through the Stronghold and even through to find the Metallic ring he had created transformed into a slightly organic Portal. When Steven approached the Portal, he was attacked by a horde of Silverfish. Upon defeating the Silverfish, Steven looked at the Portal with disgust. He began to destroy the eye-like crystals that lined the Portal. Upon the destruction of all 12 Eyes, the portal began to close. However, a long head and neck of a Black Dragon rose from the slowly closing portal. the Dragon breathed a powerful roar, knocking Steven into the ground. The Dragon retracted its head back into the Portal as it finally closed, finishing with a powerful shock-wave that split Steven into two halves. One was his soul as a ghost, and the other was his soulless body with blank-white eyes.
At the same time, Steven's pregnant wife gave birth to a baby boy, as Steven's wife passes away from her illness, she names the baby, "Steve".........
Truly, not all was well. The shockwave created by the Dragon ravaged the lands, tearing the planet between two dimensions. The dimension that Steve found himself in carried both the Cages and the Portal, whilst the dimension that housed the other Colonists carried only remains of the Cages. Marcus and the other Colonists used what materials they had to form one large Cage, which upon activation would transfer a bit of their world to the other dimension. However, the darkness was not to be outmatched by the Colonists, and slipped through the Cage to Steve's dimension. Unfortunately for the Colonists, when they themselves were transferred, they were transformed into peculiar creatures, their soul loosely hanging onto their morphed bodies, which had large noses... It was even worse for the scientists that survived, who had been corrupted into potion-lobbing monsters.
