The Minecraft Diaries 8: Short overnight trip

Shelter for the night.

Shelter for the night.

I made an overnight trip to the desert biome beyond the taiga. As soon as night began to fall, I realized I’d forgotten to bring a bed with me. I was so pissed, I forgot that I’d sheared some brown sheep on the way there, and I had enough wood as well, and I could have just made a bed. Instead I spent the night gathering sand and turning it into sandstone.

Toward dawn I heard that irritating sound of something sticky flopping against the ground, and I went out to destroy two large slimes coming for a visit from the swamp next door. There was nothing else out there. On the way home I noticed that there was a lot of clay in the water out there, but I didn’t really need it anymore. Good to know it’s there. Then on a small island within sight of my kickass mountain home, I found a ravine.

Typical.

This is within sight of my house.

This is within sight of my house.

I could see one iron ore and a few coals from the lip of the ravine, but I didn’t really want to stand there because there were sheep on the island and I was afraid they’d push me in. I used the cobble I brought with me to build a hut, ready for me to move into as soon as I could run home and grab a bed, a chest, and a crafting table, as well as my iron tools in case I found something I can’t mine with stone.

The next adventure awaits. What will I find? Gold, diamonds? More lapis, at least? Maybe some goddamned iron? I can’t wait to find out.
