My world is created, everything is well. Green trees are everywhere, sheep, cows, a mysterious experience bar looms before. First thing I think is that I will probably need a bed and some better tools. So I wonder away from this enticing clear meadow by the sea and head towards tall dark looming trees in the distance. On the way I find some sheep and find that they no longer drop wool from mere hits, now they must die to give you wool, this makes me sad, but I need my wool and the sheep must die. I look vainly around for any signs of civilization, but nothing, just giant trees and a dark forest looming ahead of me. I check the sun to see how much time I have and notice that days seem to take longer than they used to, that makes me feel a little less scared to be stuck out at night with no home to return and shoddy equipment to fight with. I entered the forest finally and right in front of me loomed a giant canyon, a canyon that seemed to have no obvious path down into it. So, I use blocks and try to create my own path, one that will not require me to jump to my death. Halfway down I notice something, something I've never seen before...
What is that? Lights in the distance and wood platforms, this is a new world and I am it's first player, this is something new. I make my way down the canyon side some more, but fall, surprisingly without meeting my death. This is the first time I notice how the food system works now, the more your hunger bar is filled the faster your health regenerates, seems to work well. I enter the canyon and notice that there are small tunnels, that have braced wood platforms (like a mine would), in every direction. The wood platforms have webs on them, web's I cant seem to break so I move on. I can hear monsters everywhere, mainly spiders, but I cannot see them. There are torches here and there all over these tunnels, but I'm paranoid anyways and place torches all over the place, just for good measure. I exit a tunnel platform and come into a larger chamber, before I can examine my surroundings a large green spider comes jumping at me (a boss monster?). I pull out my sword and get two hits, but one of the spiders hits drops half of my hit points. Stubborn as I am, I try to run, but it was far too fast and I died on the spot.
This time around, I head a different direction, towards the desert. I am quite curious about the boss spider, but I'm more interested in finding a NPC village and making a bed. This time I head through the desert and find a mountainous area, but it's night and creepers, skeletons and zombies are all over, no endermen though. I travel below the mountain tops along the coast, trying to avoid trouble, but fighting creepers from time to time. I make it through the night fairly unscathed, although the landscape has some new holes in it, but as the day nears I climb to the top of a mountain to get my surroundings. It takes a short while, but I get to the top and see all below. Everything looks nice it's in minecraft way, especially with grass all over, and I can see far with the new field of view, but no settlements or man made objects in sight. I continue onward, in random directions and finally I see something, torches. As I get closer I notice that is a village, but no signs of npc's or life, just a few forges, libraries, farms and houses. I finally put a bed in one of these houses and decide to end my adventure for now; I had to go look up and see why there wasn't any npc's (not till next patch apparently).
Sure nothing too exciting happened in this adventure and I wish I had gotten some screenshots of that spider boss, but at least I got murdered and found some cool places. Now for some non related minecraft news, before I leave for the day and go work & drive.
