Silver was still staring at the ruins, guards scurrying around like ants on a disturbed pile, when the wood elf spoke again. He turned his head, just the tiniest, to glance over and see who she was talking to... and found her staring at him. He froze, mind racing. She'd spotted him? He must have been too distracted by the beast to really concentrate on staying hidden, or maybe she was simply more perceptive than he'd originally thought. But now what?
He couldn't run now. So instead, he took a half step out of the shadows of the trees that he had thought were hiding him (traitorous shadows) and cleared his throat. "I.. uhm... Silver. I'm Silver." He shuffled his feet a bit, horrified at how fidgety he felt all of a sudden. Normally he could stand or crouch for an hour or so, still and silent in the trees, but now that he was talking with a pretty elf... ugh. "I came from the port town after I heard yo- someone talking about this creature destroying towns, and thought maybe I could help you." He paused, then hastily clarified. "You all. Not just you, everyone. Its a bad beast, right, needs to be stopped?"
He clamped his mouth shut. That was enough. Too much more talking and he was afraid it would sound like he was stalking them. He slid the silver-shod staff off of his back and leaned on it, trying to look nonchalant, and nodded in the direction of Pierce/Peerce whatever his-name-was.

I don't know what you're talking about. This just looked like a neat topic to post on, obviously.

Silver rushed through the forest, trying to catch back up with the pair he had been following. Somehow, they'd managed to lose him, unintentionally.
When he finally glided up to the border, the town was in view.
Not that it seemed much like a town anymore.
Burnt, craters everywhere, the place seemed totally destroyed. Aside from something... in the middle...
And that was when the monster rose into the sky, and spun off, flying overhead like a snake swimming through the air. Silver desperately hoped that wasn't the goal of their journey.
He finally spotted the two out by the town, and he nearly just ran forward and asked them what happened. But he held himself back, because there was a third person, mounted, talking with them and gesturing.
Nervously, he fingered his sleep arrows, wondering what exactly was going on. For some reason, he really, really wanted to shoot that third person, maybe even with a real arrow. But the feeling didn't make any sense, so he shoved it to the back of his mind and simply watched.

This. Is. FANTASTIC.
I've always thought that water how it is now is such a weird, and occasionally broken way of doing things. While I can see how this might not be something that would get implemented in Vanilla (though it really should), this might be the one mod I actually play with OVER vanilla. The only mod I've ever actually used consistently is Optifine, but this is something with actual content that is incredible!
I read through about ten pages before I couldn't take the mumbo jumbo anymore and skipped to the end, and I'm glad to see that the latest post was only four days ago, rather than weeks or months. I'm assuming you are Tiger, Keybounce? Or someone working with him? I didn't see him for a while, and it looks like you've sorta replaced him.
Anyway, I'm not totally sure if this is out yet or not. Is it? If it is, I'm gonna need to figure out how to download a mod properly

When Silver wanted an adventure, he admitted to himself that he hadn't meant this kind of trip. Walking for days along dry paths and forests, eating only what he could scavenge from the land and the animals. Every night he would sleep in the nearest tree to the other two travelers, perched almost like a bird, but laid out more like a cat. Still, it wasn't very comfortable.
Along the way, he'd heard a good amount of their conversations, and while most of it wasn't very important, he had learned their names. Pierce and Care-win. Strange names, but then again he might have just misheard, then assumed that was what it was for the rest of the trip.
But the biggest thing was that they hadn't broken character this whole time, which meant that they probably were who they said they were. He really doubted that anyone would be so dedicated to fool people that they kept an act up for a week, even when no one else was (presumably) watching.
He had been tempted to reveal himself to them for a while now, but that feeling was always faint. He would reveal himself when he had to, and no later.

Silver felt his eyes grow wide as he heard them planning, planning to kill the beast that took down this entire village. Did they really think... think that they could take down a monster that powerful?
Instinctively, he glanced down at his own weapons: The hardwood staff he held close to his body, and the bow slung across his back. He didn't even have many proper arrows, most of them consisting of pointy sticks topped with a sleeping mixture and fetched with simple feathers.
But he did have a few more solid arrows, topped with sharpened steel, that he was fairly confident he could sink into vital spots on a creature, if he had too-
He shook himself a little, his cloak ruffling with the smoke and ashes around him. What was he thinking? Those two were the ones planning on going out on that dangerous mission, not him.
But... what if they needed help? The fox-man was interesting, he had to admit, and for some reason the elf intrigued him. Another archer, someone who understood what he did... plus, her sense of duty was inspiring. And, well, maybe she was rather pretty.
Silver made up his mind then. His goal was to explore, correct? What better way to do that than by going and seeing what rare creatures were out there? It was sure to be an adventure, with those two leading, even if they didn't know it.
And they wouldn't know it. At least not at first. He would follow, silently, to make sure they really were who they said they were, and they would be doing what they planned. He didn't want to be mixing with a bad crowd, after all.

((Was gonna wait for the other two, but they are taking too long. Moooving on.))
Dr. Style eagerly peered over the shoulders and tails of the monsters that now filled the room, trying to get a good look at the compasses. His face fell visibly when none of them appeared to be pointing in any specific direction. The experiment was a failure, with no distinct results.
He sighed. "Ah well, I suppose it was a long shot anyway. There wasn't much chance that your abilities really had to do with a mythical creature living nearby anyway. Its much more likely that your powers have to do with something else completely." He gazed around at them all. "Still, I'm glad we eliminated one possibility. We still have many tests we can do!" He glanced longingly at the compasses. "Still, maybe you could hold on to those for a few more minutes. Maybe it'll work eventually."
Suddenly a thought came to his head. "Oh! Maybe that girl who is sleeping in the lobby might be able to make it work! She could be tired from using her powers often, or something." He turned and rushed through the door.
The doctor hurried out of the room before Elija could tell him that, one, he seemed rather desperate, and two, that was his sister, who was simply tired from waking up too early. He probably wouldn't have spoken up anyway.
He sighed, and looked down at the compass in his claws again. Tentatively, he shook it, and the needle swung around randomly again.
Suddenly, the needle zipped around, and fixed itself on a specific point, quivering. Elija felt his eyes grow wide, and he glanced up at the others to see if they were seeing the same things.
And it was that moment when the massive, blue, swirling vortex opened in the floor beneath them, and swallowed everyone in the room whole.
They found themselves flung out the other end into the clearing of a rather dense jungle.
((Here's where it really starts! The cutoff is now!))

Oh, its not youuur fault. I think it just had to do with music, which was something that most people don't necessarily imagine themselves doing cool things while it plays, so it wasn't going to be the one with the most people anyway, and then the instructions were a bit complicated... If anything, its probably MY fault, cause I didn't update my post afterwards.
I still think he could get something cool out of this. Music is Magic is one of my favorite ideas. It just needs a bit more room on this or that to create characters.

It still seems much more like an issue that has to deal with exploring in the first place, rather than with the mining. Plus, the only reason you would be moving so fast is because you have Haste and Efficiency. If you put those on a normal Diamond pick, you'd still be moving fast enough to get out of range if you angled your pick right as you ran.
So is the issue that the lag slows you down?
Lets take it this way. Two players, one with a normal pick, the other with a pick that has this enchantment, plus efficiency, and haste, which is what your example is, right?
The guy with the normal pick takes, lets say, 2 minutes to cross a chunk just by mining normally.
The other guy takes 10 seconds to go the same distance, and then hits some lag that makes his computer stop working for twenty seconds because he's found a chunk that he hasn't explored.
When the lag ends, he still only took 30 seconds to clear out a 3x3 tunnel, whereas it took the other guy 2 minutes to mine a 2x1 tunnel. Its still a lot faster, even with the lag.
And then here's the thing. The Minefield guy only was that fast because he had the other enchantments. If you took those enchantments away, then you realize he only moves twice as fast, though he is clearing four times as much area. And thats the whole point of the enchantment, to clear more area faster.

I agree, that actually does sound "exciting!" I mean, its not like there are thousands of little kids who used to simply imagine all these things around them, with superpowers and secret bases and things that aren't really there, cause little kids don't do that kind of stuff, they only do things with stuff that is already there and real.
Its not like as those kids gew up they ditched the imaginary games for stuff like board games and video games, not because they became less imaginative, but because they craved more of a challenge with rules and requirements,
Its not like this would be the perfeect solution for both having an imaginary realm you could play in with friends, while still keeping the rules and requirtements that you started to love for a challenge.
Its not like... its not like... wait.
Tell me, honestly, what is the difference between sitting in a log cabin outside , using agumented Minecraft, and the difference between sitting in a cabin you made, hile sitting on a cumpter? There are a few I can think of:
You are actually feeling like you are IN the cabin, especially if you use the google cardboard goggles thing like Gamelord said.
Two, you'd be building this in your world, instead of a totally different world.
and Three, it'd be a bit more emberrasing to walk around with goggles over your face or holding your phone up at awkward angles, but only because now everyone can SEE you be a geek, and no more emberassing than playing Pokemon Go.
