*NOTE* This is an old draft that I'm publishing today becuase it wouldn't fit in today's regular blog post. This draft is about three days old.
Well, today I embarked on a legendary task in the world of Minecraft: to contain the zombies. (I was playing the Pocket app.)
I came up with the idea when I finally got tired of Zombies ambushing me in the dead of night. I couldn't see because I had no torches set up, and to torch the entire Minecraft world really would be something. Plus, torches double as a horribly weak weapon. (Hint: Ten torch strikes during the middle of night (zombies are not weakened by daylight yet) to kill a zombie, whereas five to a shovel, four to a pickaxe, and three to an axe.)
So I thought it would be just great if I could seclude a part of the Minecraft world with walls. That fort would cover a place where zombies spawn. I would patrol the top of the walls, looking out to see if there were any stragglers. And when I felt like it, I could walk down from the top of the walls to ground level and massacre the zombies. And for my amusement, I could dig a reaaaaaaaaaaly deep pool in the fort. Then, when the zombies come for me, they fall into the pool and I watch as they splash, trying to get out. In that case, I can kill the zombies while they are in the pool for my amusement.
And I would be able to see, twenty-four seven. How, you ask? Well, I torch the walls of my fort (inside and outside optional, as in I feel like torching walls and getting chased by zombies outside of the comfort of my fort). So, yeah. Wouldn't that be nice?
I set to work on my great project. I spent about ten minutes on the actual fort, then I moved on to bigger things. Why, you ask (again)?
The zombies were coming across bodies of water. Also, I *like to round up zombies and slaughter them*. I like to jump zombies, not the other way around. I was confident that if I *spent enough time*, I would finish... the Great Wall of Minecraft!
*Two hours later*
I give up. And so that concludes my experience on Minecraft Pocket Edition (That was yesterday, to be exact.)
I learn a crapload of information from the Minecraft Wiki, my newly discovered best friend related to all things Minecraft. Applying this to Minecraft, I first go onto my own private survival world, Oblivion. (My private creative world is Azgard.) The big discovery of the day (or was it? Did I make that discovery earlier?) is an underground cavern, not man-made. I go into it and randomly start mining with my bare fists. (Yeah, way to go, but I don't know how to craft anything yet.) I pick up some flint from a rock that turns out to be gravel. Actually remembering something logical, I start looking for steel. (Hello? There is no such thing has steel ore. Whoops.) Later, I discover on the MC Wiki that it's iron I'm supposed to be looking for. Oh.
Back to Oblivion.
