You spawn in an oak tree, jump down, look around until you see the mts on your left and then follow the river to the first village. From there, you will be able to see the second village in the distance.
There are mineshafts very close to each village, and both villages have a blacksmith as well as a library with crops to start you out on your adventures.
you will spawn on a small island with 1 oak tree.... there are a couple of small sandy islands in view as well as two ocean monuments. so, will you make the most of your resources at spawn or build a boat to travel to another shore?
