Chapter 1: Fortifications
Saturday: I get a shield
Did you know that you can craft a shield out of colored wool and wooden planks? I crafted a blue one today because facing mobs with only a sword can be tough sometimes.
Zombie Pigmen have been attacking the village. The Iron Golem that the Friendly Villager crafted can only provide so much protection so Alex and I have been taking turns keeping watch at the Village. Tonight is my turn.
Why not just craft more Iron Golems? Because not all mobs are bad, at least, I don’t think so. I have a lot of respect for Endermen, even though Alex thinks I’m crazy. That’s made it really hard to collect Ender pearls, but it’s something we have to do.
So, I need a shield, because I don’t always see the need to attack. Sometimes it’s just better to defend.
When I left the Village this morning I ran into Alex on her way in. I told her it was quiet last night. It hasn’t been for a while. She said it was the calm before the storm and that things would likely get ugly before they get any better.
We had to find the Stronghold in order to stop the Zombie Pigmen for good. That was taking longer than we had hoped.
Our plan was to find the portal to the End, which was only found in the Stronghold, and then build a Nether Portal right next to it so that the Zombie Pigmen would go straight into the End. Endermen hated Zombie Pigmen and I was certain that this would prompt the Endermen to wage a battle against them, taking the pressure off of us. But until we found that portal, the Village was under attack.
I had an idea, though.
“What if we built a wall around the Village?”
“Could work,’ said Alex. “But it would need to be impenetrable.”
Obsidian was the only thing I knew of that was impenetrable, and it was the rarest thing around.
It was my turn to keep watch at the Village, again. I got there early so that I could talk to the very knowledgeable Butcher. He’d given me good advice before and knew all kinds of things about this Blocky Universe that weren’t always found in the books at the library.
“Tell me everything you know about obsidian,” I told him. You had to be very explicit with most Villagers because, while they usually had a lot of useful information, they didn’t share it so easily on their own.
“Obsidian, eh? There’s plenty of it in the End World.”
This I already knew, but I wasn’t sure I was ready to go to the End just yet. The Nether had been quite a challenge and I wanted to master all of the obstacles there before moving on to something even more dangerous.
“What else? Surely you know more about it,” I said.
“Hm.” He rubbed his chin. “You can make it by pouring water over lava.”
“Water over lava?!”
“Yes. But that’s dangerous, though.”
Most things were in this Blocky World.
When I saw Alex on her way in today I told her about the lava.
“We need it to make obsidian for the wall. That’s sure to keep all mobs out.”
“Where will we find lava?” she asked.
There was plenty in the Nether, but I’d only seen lava once in the Over World since arriving here. It was in the underground tunnel beneath my old house. It was also during an encounter with Herobrine. I wasn’t sure I wanted to experience that again.
“We can go searching for some tomorrow,” I said. There had to be some somewhere in the Over World. I really didn’t want to go back to the Nether just yet, either. “I’ll spend the night doing more research in the library while you keep guard.”
My night spent at the library proved somewhat fruitful. I learned that lava can be found in any biome, at any level, so basically, anywhere. That didn’t make things any easier for Alex and me if we planned on looking for it.
Alex was tired, so I told her I’d go out and look first. It was my turn to keep watch tonight, too, and I hadn’t gotten a good night’s sleep last night, but this was important.
I thought that the best place to start would be in a hilly place with a lot of caves. There was an Extreme Hills Biome not too far from the Village. I would start there.
Alex reminded me that we still had to find the Stronghold. We had enough Ender pearls now, but I had to go back into the Nether in order to get the Blaze Rods so that we could make the Eyes of Ender.
We definitely had our work cut out for us.
Chapter 2: Back into the Nether
Friday: The Village is attacked, again
I was so worn out from searching for lava that I slept all day yesterday, so, when I heard that the Village was attacked by Zombie Pigmen, again last night, I couldn’t help but feel guilty.
“Wall or no wall, you need to find the Stronghold,” said the Friendly Villager.
That meant that I had to go back into the Nether for the Blaze Rods so that we could make Blaze Powder. I couldn’t keep putting it off.
“I’ll go with you,” Alex offered.
I told her it was best that she stay and help to protect the Village. As much as I hated it, I would have to battle the Blazes alone.
I’d forgotten how hot it was in the Nether, or maybe it was all the diamond armor I was wearing. I crafted it just yesterday with some of the diamonds I still had from all of the loot that Alex and I had found in the Desert Temple.
So, here I was again, in the Fortress. Blazes weren’t too hard to defeat. My biggest concern was making it back to the portal without a Ghast blowing me up. Luckily, I hadn’t seen one yet, but I knew they’d appear when I least expected them too.
After I gathered enough Blaze Rods I headed back to the portal. I crossed an endless lava lake on the way. Maybe it would make sense to take some lava with me, but I had no idea how I would manage that without setting myself on fire.
Just then, like I predicted, a Ghast appeared and wasted no time in launching fireballs at me. I had my bow and arrow and shot back at it. I’d gotten to be pretty good shooting at a Ghast since the last time I was here. I nailed it on the second try.
After that I was ready to go back. I took a last look at the lava lake. If only there was a way to get it to the Over World.
Alex would be converting the Blaze Rods into Blaze Powder so that we could make the Eyes of Ender. While she did that I had a quick conversation with the Butcher about lava.
“Is there any way to bring lava from the Nether to the Over World?”
“With a bucket,” he said.
“Of course! Why didn’t I think of that?” I said.
I rushed back to my Portal and hopped back over to the Nether side. I had no idea how much obsidian a bucket full of lava would make, but I wanted to test Butcher’s water theory, first. If this worked, and I found a source of lava in the Over World, and I could divert a source of water into it, I could have all the obsidian I’d need to build a formidable wall around the Village.
In the meantime, I needed ten blocks of obsidian to make the Nether Portal once we found the Stronghold. A bucket of lava may just be enough.
I wanted to make sure that I did this right, so I took the bucket of lava to the Butcher.
“Show me how to make obsidian,” I told him.
“You need a bucket of water,” he said.
“Will this be enough to make the ten blocks I need to create the Nether Portal?”
He gauged it with his eyes and said, “Should be.”
I watched him pour the water into the lava, little by little. Each time it created an obsidian block. He did this until the bucket was empty.
“And that’s how water and lava makes obsidian,” he said with a goofy smile.
At least I had enough obsidian blocks to make the Nether Portal. Now we had to find the Stronghold. We needed a good amount of Eyes of Ender to do that.
Alex said she wanted to try her hand at crafting them, so she came over today and made them using my crafting table.
“One Blaze Powder and one Ender pearl,” she said. “Just put them on the crafting table and tada!”
I’d never seen an Eye of Ender before, but these things were supposed to lead us to the Stronghold. I wished it could lead us to some lava. I still wanted to try my plan. I kept thinking about the time I was in my underground tunnel and the underground river turned to lava because of Herobrine. But just as quick it turned back to water. If he could do that again, though, I might be able to make some obsidian.
It was a stretch, but I wasn’t having any luck finding lava anywhere else. I may as well call on the supernatural.
Chapter 3: Herobrine Returns
Friday: I go back underground
I hadn’t spent too much time underground since my encounter with Herobrine, but I figured it was time. I didn’t even have an underground tunnel beneath my new house on the mountain, so the first thing I needed to do was dig down.
I spent all day digging and had created a pretty good size underground tunnel. Now I needed to find a source of water. Two, actually.
If my theory was right, and if Herobrine came back, he would turn one source of water to lava. If I didn’t completely lose it and run away after he did that, I could divert the water towards the lava and create obsidian.
I remembered the promise I’d made after the last time I saw Herobrine. I promised I wouldn’t run away. I’d try to talk to him. I guess this would be my chance.
Finally, I had completed digging two trenches that allowed water to flow under my house from two different sources. It was hard work, but so worth it. Now, I just needed Herobrine to appear.
But after spending two whole days underground with no sign of him, I was beginning to wonder if he’d ever show. Then I remembered the music box he left me.
I brought it down into my tunnel with me and played it. Then I waited.
I was scared as heck, but I needed this lava. I was weary of leaving the Village unprotected while Alex and I searched for the Stronghold, and we were also tired of taking turns keeping watch. It was taking up all of the time Alex and I used to spend exploring.
That may sound selfish, but I missed just exploring and having fun with my friend. I missed it so much that I was willing to spend a night down here in this creepy tunnel with this music box in the hopes that Herobrine would appear and turn water into lava.
I’d spent all night underground, again and no water turned to lava, but, weird stuff did happen.
The music box was gone. I left it right next to my bed while I slept. When I woke up, it was gone and in its place was a sign that said vän. I remembered from my last encounter with Herobrine that he liked to communicate in a language that I didn’t understand. But the Friendly Villager understood it. I went into the village to ask him what it meant.
“Herobrine, again, huh?” He studied the sign for a while and then said, “It means friend. I think it’s his way of calling you his friend.”
This was definitely a good sign because I needed his help.
I thanked the Friendly Villager, then went to see Alex. She’d been covering all my shifts at the village. I had to tell her that, if all went well, we’d be building a wall soon and then we could search for the Stronghold.
I stayed in the Village last night to give Alex a break, but tonight, I would go back down into the tunnel and wait for Herobrine. I was sure he’d show up now.
I could hardly sleep as I waited. For some reason, Herobrine liked to show up at the creepiest times. Maybe that’s why everyone was so scared of him.
I was still scared, too. What if this was a trick and he only wanted to seal me in bedrock. I shuddered at that thought, but I needed that lava. I was seriously willing to risk it all in order to get it.
After hours, I heard splashing, but not like water. I went to see what it was and nearly lost my mind! It was a flowing river of lava!
I didn’t see Herobrine anywhere, though. No matter. I immediately dug a trench from the water to the lava and—Yes! Obsidian!
My plan worked! And it was all thanks to Herobrine.
Alex wasn’t too convinced that Herobrine actually turned the water into lava. She said that I had dug so far down that it was just a matter of time before I broke through to a lava source. I liked the thought of it being Herobrine, though. Even though I never saw him.
Because of my sleepless nights we now had enough obsidian blocks to build the strongest, most defensive wall possible.
I remembered a time when I wanted to build my house out of obsidian. It was ironical that I wanted an impenetrable house because of Herobrine. And now, here he helped me get obsidian. Maybe, after all of this was over, I could go back down and try this again. I’d used up all the lava for this wall, and if I wanted more obsidian, I’d have to find more lava.
But for now, Alex and I built an obsidian wall.
Chapter 4: We Search for the Stronghold
Friday: The Eyes of Ender show us the way
With the wall built Alex and I could finally go in search of the Stronghold. It was the first time we’d been exploring together in a long time. It felt good.
But this was actually more of a guided exploration. The way the Eyes of Ender worked was that you threw one up into the sky and followed it. You had to do this over and over again, though. That’s why you needed so many.
Alex and I knew this might take several days, so we came prepared. We were excited to be going on an adventure, finally.
Alex and I passed by the coolest thing today while following the Eyes of Ender. We were in a Stone Beach Biome at the edge of some really high cliffs. We were so high we could see across the vast ocean. It was so beautiful
Then Alex squealed and pointed to a peak coming out of the waves. I looked closer and saw the outlines of a temple beneath the waves.
“It’s another temple,” I told her. “It has to be. I bet the Butcher could tell us more.”
As soon as we got back I’d ask him, but for now, Alex marked this spot on our map. If it was a temple, it would be full of loot.
We couldn’t wait.
One thing you didn’t do in this Blocky World was stay exposed at night. That’s when mobs came out.
Maybe Alex and I had forgotten about that, or maybe we were getting a little cocky. Either way, last night we were attacked by Creepers and Skeletons.
It was such a beautiful starry night last night that we fell asleep out in the open. Stupid, I know. Anyway, mobs got the jump on us.
I’d like to say that we didn’t take any damage, but a Creeper blew up right next to Alex’s supplies. She was holding half of our supply of Eyes of Ender, so those blew up, too. I only had a few left. If we didn’t find the Stronghold soon, we’d have to go back.
After all we’ve been through, I wasn’t about to let that happen.
“We’ll find it soon,” I told her.
We had to.
We were down to our very last Eye of Ender. I was so relieved that after I tossed it, it hovered before falling straight down. When I threw it again, it hovered over the exact same spot.
“This is it,” I told Alex.
She drew a sigh of relief. “Yes!”
Now we just had to dig down.
We dug until Alex hit stone brick. Once she dug through that, we were in.
I’d nearly forgotten about all the loot that was housed in the Stronghold. I told Alex, “First things, first. Let’s grab the loot and explore today. We still have to find the Portal Room.”
We scored apples, golden apples, iron, gold, bread, more Ender pearls, weapons, armor, redstone, enchanted books, diamonds, paper!—so much loot!
After a day of exploring we found the Portal Room. It was amazing. The End Portal was very different from the Nether Portal. It didn’t look like a portal. I mean, the Nether Portal had this crazy purple field inside the obsidian blocks. This End Portal looked like it needed to be turned on or something. There was no crazy field.
“Try stepping inside of it,” said Alex.
I wasn’t prepared to go to the End just yet, but I seriously doubted that this portal would take me anywhere. I stepped inside of it and—nothing.
“Maybe there’s a switch?” said Alex.
“Yeah,” I said. I noticed that all around it there were some round indents, just about the same size as the Eyes of Ender. “I bet something has to go here.”
Alex reminded me of the humongous library we found yesterday while searching for loot.
“We could find the answer in there, I bet,” she said.
I bet we could.
Chapter 5: Clash of the Mobs
Wednesday: The Stronghold’s Library saves the day
Alex and I found the answers we were seeking right here in the Stronghold’s very own library. Those indents along the perimeter of the End Portal were for Eyes of Ender—and we only had one.
We needed twelve.
Luckily, we had found plenty of Ender pearls among the loot in this place. We could use them to craft Eyes of Ender—if only we had Blaze Powder.
“Glad I brought along these Blaze Rods,” said Alex.
It wasn’t the first time I wanted to hug Alex. All I had to do now was make a crafting table so that she could craft the Eyes of Ender.
While Alex crafted the Eyes of Ender, I got busy building the Nether Portal. The End Portal had steps that led into it, so I decided that putting the Nether Portal right in front of those steps would lead the Zombie Pigmen right into the End Portal.
I only hoped it worked.
I really had no idea what the Zombie Pigmen would do when they started coming over from the Nether. They might just try to kill us.
But I knew that Endermen hated Zombie Pigmen. If we could get just one to go into the End Portal, it might just start a war—one that could be fought in the End or the Nether. As long as it didn’t happen here in the Over World.
I knew that the Endermen and Zombie Pigmen had fought a war before. There was no reason why this shouldn’t work.
It felt like we had been away from the Village for so long, but we couldn’t just activate both portals and leave. We had to see that my plan worked.
It had been a whole day and nothing—no Zombie Pigmen had come through from the Nether, and no Endermen had come through from the End.
“So, what if nothing happens?” asked Alex.
I really didn’t want to face that possibility. That would mean that all of our hard work was for nothing. We’d still have to figure out how to stop Zombie Pigmen from attacking the Village. Even with an impenetrable obsidian wall, Zombie Pigmen were pretty clever and I had no doubt that they’d find a way.
Just then, we heard a zomg. It was the familiar sound that the Nether Portal made whenever I went through it. Alex and I moved back into the shadows to watch.
“It’s a Zombie Pigman,” said Alex.
“I know,” I said.
Just like I thought, the Zombie Pigman climbed right up the steps and into the End Portal. With another zomg he was gone.
Alex and I looked at each other and jumped for joy. It worked!
We wanted to wait one more day before leaving to scout the place out some more. This place was huge! Even after we thought we had found everything, we found more.
More gold, more diamonds, more weapons—I could see why it was called a stronghold.
But staying that extra day made me wonder about the End. I knew I wasn’t ready to go there just yet, but just like with the Nether, I wanted a peek.
I told Alex and she turned white as a ghost. “You can’t do that,” she said. “The only way back is by defeating the Ender Dragon.”
Luckily, she had spent more time researching than I had. It’s a good thing I told her, too, because if I’d gone ahead without telling her, I might be stuck in the End right now.
We were finally leaving, but we wanted to see if there were any new developments in the Portal Room. I wish that there was a way for us to see what was happening.
“Why don’t you just hop over to the Nether side?” said Alex. “You know you can come back from there, and, if something is happening in the End, maybe there’ll be clues in the Nether.”
What a great idea!
I hopped over to the Nether side and looked around. I didn’t see too many Zombie Pigmen—definitely less than I’ve seen before when I’ve come. Also, I saw Endermen!
I’ve never seen them in the Nether. This was definitely a sign. I wanted to look around some more, but I didn’t want to keep Alex waiting, so I hopped back over.
I told Alex what I saw.
She said, “Come on. It’s time to go home.”
Chapter 6: I Want to Go to the End
Thursday: Finally back home
Alex and I made it back to the Village, finally. We were gone almost two weeks! It’s the longest either of us had ever been away from the Village. We were glad to be back.
Friendly Villager had arranged a small celebration in our honor. He said that the obsidian wall was a great defense, and that since about a week ago, Zombie Pigmen stopped attacking.
I guess they’re too busy fighting off Endermen. I guess my plan worked.
“But, I wonder why Zombie Pigman don’t come through your Nether Portal?” asked Alex.
Hmm. Now that I think about it, I wonder, too.
“They can,” said the Butcher. “It’s up to you to see that they don’t.”
Sounded like a challenge. I was beginning to like challenges. It’d give me an opportunity to train if they did.
I hadn’t forgotten about that structure Alex and I saw in the ocean. When we went into the Village today I stopped at the Butcher’s, first.
“Tell me everything you know about a structure in the ocean.”
“Sounds like an Ocean Temple,” he said. “It’s the biggest temple and it’s underwater.”
“So, how does one explore it if it’s under water?”
“You brew a potion,” he said. “A potion will let you breath under water.”
Note to self, learn how to brew potions.
“Is there any loot?”
“Gold blocks, but you have to defeat an Elder Guardian to get them,” said the Butcher.
“Gold huh?” Definitely worth exploring.
Since leaving the Stronghold I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the End. Now that I knew where the Stronghold was, I found it tempting to go back and visit the End, myself. I was so curious about what was on the other side.
But, I knew now that if I went over to the End, the only way back was to defeat the Ender Dragon. That sounded really hard, so I’d have to wait.
I’d become stronger, first, and then I’d go. In the meantime, I’d learn everything I could about the End.
The Nether was a pretty great place to train. Alex and I would go almost every day now to mine quartz, explore, and train. We even found another Fortress!
It was still a scary place, but it was making us stronger. We defeated Wither Skeletons on a daily basis, and Ghasts, were no match for us. Zombie Pigmen were still scarce in the Nether, which led me to believe that this war between them and the Endermen was most likely taking place in the End.
That made me want to go there even more. But first, I must train.
So, Butcher tells me that there’s an Elder Guardian inside the Ocean Temple and in order to collect the gold blocks there you have to defeat it. Elder Guardian mobs are tough to beat, especially since you have to do this all underwater. That, alone, is a challenge.
Challenging myself is what this is all about, right? I want to go to the End, but first, I have to become stronger. So, I’ll go to this Ocean Temple and defeat this Elder Guardian and then, I will go to the End. Soon.
