So what are your thoughts on the story behind Minecraft? I want to make a machinima about
There is no official story behind Minecraft so I thought:
Why not take it to the forums and see what you think?
Which is exactly what I'm doing right now.
Your suggestions can be funny, long, short and as creative as you like.
There are no right or wrongs.
All suggestions will be taken as long as they are not too rude.
Also include the arrival of certain mobs such as the Enderman or the creeper
Well let's see. I'm writing the book of Genesis right here. (minecraft version) RESERVED BY ME
1:1 There was a man of the name Marcus Perrson.
1:2 He saw the world and decided "hey, why can't people create worlds in their own image?"
1:3 So Marcus, by now gained the title of Notch, created a framework in which all was cubical, and circles along with anything with curves was unnallowed.
1:4 So he created two creations on the first day; Steve and Herobrine.
1:5 He allotted for them the entire garden of Minecraft, currently known as Alpha, given the freedom to mine, build, craft, and live in peace within the garden.
CHAPTER 2; THE TEMTATION OF CREEPER
2:1 It was well into the second week of development, with the Notch coding the garden's laws with a divine language, known as Java.
2:2 Steve and Herobrine were allowed to mine of any resource, but one of Notch's minions, Creeper, fell from Mojang Dimension. He decided to tempt Players for all eternity, until Notch's second coming.
2:3 So, Steve and Herobrine were led underground by Creeper, and tempted to mine of the ore of Diamond, a mystical object, with superior hardness and power.
2:4 Now that Steve and Herobrine had the knowledge of power of Java and Shell Script within Diamond, Notch investigated.
2:5 Herobrine actually tempted Steve to mine of Diamond, so Herobrine was banished from this dimension.
2:6 Creeper had a punishment also, He was split into constantly spawning and exploding small versions of himself, taking his anger out on Steve, but only by night and early in Morning.
CHAPTER 3; DANGER OF REVENGE
3:1 While Steve was building, and creating his world, Creeper wanted to seek violence towards Steve.
3:2 He arranged an army of demonic beings, created out of the Nether.
3:3 This army was to come out at night, and in exceptionally dark areas. This included Skeletons, Zombies, and the widely feared, Endermen.
3:4 Now, at this point, Creeper almost had his army created, but lacked a creature that could jump and climb. This creature that he tempted with powers of jumping and climbing was the only creature capable of jumping large jumpings and climbing high heights; a spider.
3:5 Spider was a noble creature, but he was only tempted in dark light. This explains his staying hostile at night but peaceful in the Morning and during Daytime.
SURVIVAL MODE::Chapter 1:Steve
There once was a man named Steve he grew up in a small town named MineTown. He got a letter in the mail saying a boat was traveling to the land of Minecraftia he right away took the chance and got a ticket.
Chapter 2:The Creeps and Ender's
When the boat came he got on saying goodbye to his parents.on the way there the place was attacked with Creepers and Endermen. Steve was the only survivor he hid the rest of the ride. When they got there the Creepers and Endermen got off the boat. Steve waited about 1 or 2 minutes and when he got out of the spot he hid he saw dead bodies and skeletons. He left the boat then when he got off the dead bodies and skeleton got up and started chasing him.
Chapter 3:Ravine's Saved my Life
Right away he started running. He knew that they were going to kill him so he didn't stop he fell in a ravine but on a ledge they continued but were running so fats the fell in the ravine completely and died.
Chapter 4:Living Life
Steve went on in his life gathering crops,wood,iron,gold, and diamonds he lives there now and is immortalnow he dies and re-spawns in the same place he left the boat.TO BE CONCLUDED.
Firstly, this isn't a suggestion per se, as you haven't suggested anything, so it's in the wrong section.
Secondly, I don't think there is any set storyline, it's for you to make up as your adventure goes on.
That's one of the aspects of survival, that's where it all starts. Your life, your story.
Villagers, Illagers, and Witches look similar enough that they can be considered different factions of the same species. The Illagers who live in the woodland mansion are officially called "Villager Outcasts", yet they have a different skin tone and speak a different language and are extremely hostile towards Villagers and seem to be far better suited and much more powerful.
Golems are hostile towards Witches, while Witches and Villagers ignore each other. Same with Skeletons. They ignore Villagers and vice versa, but the Skeletons and Golems fight.
If we take Golems as a magically created creature designed to do the fighting for their Villager Masters, then the Villagers can be seen as hostile, but not towards the player but against anything that could possibly harm them except for creepers.
Witches throw potions and drink them to heal, but brewing those potions requires nether warts. So they either have access to the nether or are supplied with potion ingredients by someone who has. The only nether portals in the game are the Player built ones and the only known mob that can travel between worlds without needing a portal is the Enderman. So are the Endermen gathering warts and blaze rods in the Nether in order to sell them to Witches?
There are no Non-Zombie-Pigmen, but a bunch of Zombie-Pigmen in the nether. There are "regular"-Zombies and there are Villager Zombies.
Why are there so many "green Steve" looking zombies and so little villager zombies, while there is only one Non-Zombie-Steve: The Player.
The Fact that there are so many human zombies compared to villager zombies tells us that there were once way more members of the human species than of the Testificate species, but then something happened that changed that. Testificates can be cured fromZombieism (is that even a word?) but Humans cannot.
What could have (but not necessarily did) happened in the Backstory is that Humans experimented with Genetics and created both Pigmen and Testificates. They taught the Testificates a lot and intended them to be scholars while they wanted the Pigmen to be warriors. The Testificates discovered that Magic is real, rebelled against the humans and destroyed most of the human technology.
Opening a Portal to a parallel Dimension called humans referred to as hell but was renamed into the nether by the Testificates enabled them much more powerful magic and they built giant fortresses to breed the creatures they drained the magic from. The Humans Sent the Pigmen into the Nether, backing them with human archers and swordfighters, but that army was met with a magical curse that was intended to wipe out humanity and their Pigmen Slaves. The entire Army of the Pigmen was zombified and all their weapons turned into gold.
The Humans managed to storm the fortresses but were zombified too.
The Archers, during the zombification, while still somewhat sentient, escaped back to the overworld and started attacking humans as archer-zombies. They rotted over time until only the bones were left and they lost the ability to spread the curse. That is how Skeletons became a thing and why they all have bows. Before they rotted down to skeletons, they spread the zombieism to civilians who proceeded to infect more.
The swordsmen-zombies in the nether drove the Testificates back to the Overworld, out of the Nether for good, and they closed the portal. Afterwards, the Swordsmen-zombies encountered something called "Wither" and the Zombie-Curse mixed with it, turning all swordsmen zombies into wither-zombies that rotted down to wither skeletons who proceeded to give rise to the Wither boss.
The Testificates, under attack by the Zombie Plague they created and still at war with the Humans, decided to create Iron Golems to deal with the zombies and Creepers, plant creatures that release their spores when exploding, to deal with the humans. Also, they trained one of their breeds in hand to hand combat and powerful battle magic.
The remaining humans built the underground strongholds to protect themselves from the creepers, and the zombies and experimented on opening a portal to yet another unexplored dimension to flee from the war.
In that Dimension, However, a giant black Dragon, the last of her kind, had just recently used her mind-control powers to enslave the native population. When Humans entered, and the Dragon realized that they were immune to her powers and killed them all, rendering the Dragon the "End" of Mankind, giving the Dimension and most of its inhabitants its name. The End.
When the Testificate armies entered the strongholds, they realized what the humans had done and closed the portals by removing the eyes of Ender, as they were called later on, and taking them with them.
With the war over, the Testificates decided to build their own society from scratch, but couldn't agree on what to build and how to build it. That resulted in a split of the previously unified Testificates into Villagers, the common breed of the Testificates, that kept the control over the Iron Golems and built the Villages, the Illagers, the warrior breed of the Testificates, kept the control over Creepers and somehow tamed the Zombies and Skeletons, and their Hate for the Villagers after the split caused them to make all recently infected zombies to hunt Villagers on purpose, instead of mistaking them for Humans every now and then. They built the Woodland mansions. And then there are Witches as the newest faction that does something in between those two opposing factions.
Steve is the last surviving Human, that only survived because he was left behind and forgotten.
The Villagers treat him friendly but with suspicion, as the war is over, and as he is the only human left, he can't reproduce, and therefore the Humans are done for, no matter what he does. The other Testificates, the Witches, and Illagers, treat him as if he was a human Warrior that came to destroy them.
When Steve slays the Ender Dragon, he frees the enslaved Endermen, avenges his people and then the gods talk to him and tell him that he deseves the ascension to godhood, and as Steve becomes a god, Humanity ends.

I just took the Minecraft Noob test! Check out what I scored. Think you can beat me?!
Roughly 95% of Minecraft
players hate Villagers and would be very happy if they were removed. If
you are one of the 5% who actually like villagers, copy this into your
signature and hope it never happens. ~EnderDude124
Thanks @TheBeastCH, I like what you've posted here, and I will refer back to it for inspiration as I develop my own backstory and lore for my own upcoming Minecraft fanfic series. My story probably won't feature the word "Steve's" as such, and the term "Testificate" won't be in my own fanfic either. Your explanations of where some of the other races that appear in Minecraft, is what I'm particularly interested in as I begin developing my own lore and backstory. The upcoming aquatic mobs, such as the Drowned, will also require some explaining for my own writing. Lots of ideas! 👍
Hi, I'm Augur and I'm from New Zealand (NZ). Just call me "Augur". I'm an older person playing Minecraft Xbox 360 Legacy Console Edition without Xbox Gold (no online gaming, sorry), so please don't hate on the old. 😄
