I just made a golem to patrol my house and he wandered away to the nearby village! Do they normally "abandon their post" like that?
Didn't mean to post this twice, my phone is weird, so please delete this one!
Okay, so I was drunk playing in survival mode, haha! I had my husband mine for me b/c I had apparently looked at an Enderman and got attacked. I jumped on water and that took care of him, but I needed more iron ore since I lost it when I died. But then he got me killed. I went right back for my stuff first thing and it was all there. Almost got myself killed again b/c the cave spiders ganged up on me, but thankfully I still had my dogs.
