I think the most funniest, memorable gaming moment I can still remember was from this game I played called Trickster.
There was this marriage system in the game that allows you to teleport anywhere your spouse is at. My friend and I thought this skill was cool.
We arranged our marriage, did the quests and paid the amount. When we entered the chapel, the priest asks us to write to each other our vows. I wanted to be romantic since it is a wedding after all, so I typed “You’re the key to my heart.”
Pressed enter. Then, let the wedding music and cut scenes to play. When our vows came up. Mine went up first, and my friend said “Aw, that’s sweet.”
My friend’s vow was “Yay! Teleport xD”
Oh gawd, I was the only evie in a colru run. I wasn’t looking at who was joining since I always alt+tab everytime I wait for a pug boat to launch.
It’s kind of awkward being the only evie, lann, karok, or fiona in a party sometimes.
Wonder if there’s ever been a party where everyone was an evie and only one lann, everyone is a fiona only one evie, everyone is a lann only one evie, or you get the point LOL
It’s nice being the only evie but not when it’s a school day.
I want fast runs if it was a school day.
Minecraft diary 1
I don’t know if anyone will read this, but I thought it might be fun to start a diary of my adventures on my current Minecraft file. The world I built is called ‘Abraxas’, after a planet in the Xenosaga video games. Since I’ve already put several hours into my world, there aren’t a lot of pictures for these early entries, so I’ll try to rush through to what I’m doing now. Maybe eventually I’ll record some video, too?
I started this adventure on a small, hilly peninsula. I immediately dug into the first decently sized beach-side cliff I could find and made a shelter. Once I’d collected sufficient materials, I began hollowing out my cave, making a long hallway with 6 rooms. At the end I had two stairs, on the left to the roof of my base, on the right leading downward. Outside I quickly discovered a cave system, so I dug a path into it from my base. I immediately encountered a pocket of lava rather close to the surface and right underneath my base, so I threw water on it to make obsidian that I could later harvest.
I found a second cave system under the north end of my base, so I began harvesting materials from the cave systems on both sides. I collected a sizable fortune in iron, coal, and other resources rather quickly. When I learned that a bucket of lava can be used to smelt blocks (without using up the bucket), I made several buckets in my workshop and began harvesting the remaining lava from the pocket I had found earlier.
My base consisted, as I said earlier, of six main rooms. The first was my workshop, where I had several furnaces, my workbench, a chest for crafting materials, a chest for smelting materials, and an anvil. The second was a storage room with four chests, one for building materials, one for “junk” (dirt and gravel), one for Glass, and one for consumables and other items. The third and fourth would eventually be my enchanting room and brewing station respectively. In the fifth I dug a 2x2x1 pit to make an infinite water source. In the sixth I made a pit for storing extra lava (good for smelting or as a trash disposal).
With my base in good order, I began clearing the roof of my base. Once it was flattened, I made sure it was covered in dirt blocks arranged in rows. I made a gap between each pair of rows and filled it with water. Using seeds and sugar cane I had harvested earlier, I made a decently-sized garden. My goal is to eventually cover it in glass and place glowstone at the top to provide lighting.
Once I had found diamond, I harvested the obsidian I had made earlier in order to create a portal to the Nether. I placed it at the end of the main hallway of my base. In the Nether, I began collecting Netherrack and building a fortress out of stone bricks. I did little more at this point than to put down a foundation and create a shelter for the portal.
As I had been working, I had harvested vast amounts of cobblestone. Also, I was fortunate enough to have a vast desert to the north of my base, which meant I was able to accrue a great deal of sand. While I worked, I left cobblestone and sand smelting in order to create stone and glass. I turned the stone into stone brick, my main building material, and stored the glass for later use.
When I returned to my base, I began replacing the remaining dirt, stone, and other materials with stone bricks. When I first hollowed out the hill, I made sure that the interior walls were each 3 meters (3 blocks) thick. I dug into the center of each wall and placed a piece of netherrack down, lighting it on fire before filling in the space on either side of the block and putting glass panes up to allow the fire light to shine into my base. This creates a very bright, unobtrusive light and has a very appealing appearance in my eyes. I made the outside walls of each room glass to allow in natural light during the day and give me a good view of the world outside from any point in my base.
