To Be or Not | Hermitcraft Demise Game Discussion

I’ve been watching Hermitcraft on YouTube again. If you’ve been reading my posts for a while, you’re probably not surprised.

A little while ago, Grain started the Demise mini-game for the Hermitcraft server. In the game, everyone starts out alive; but if you die, you become a ghost (change your skin to monochrome colors). You then can “help” the others to “pass on.” The last one standing get’s the prize.

At the end of the video, Grain asked who the audience thought was going to die first. This got me wonder what I would do if I was playing the game. Personally, knowing that I would be the first to die and probably in some really embarrassing way, such as blowing myself up or from starving, I figured I would off myself right away. Sure, it would mean losing the game and the diamonds, but I would then be able to set traps and prank the others, which in my opinion is worth “losing.” *insert evil laugh here*

Now, if I could just figure out why it’s called “Hermitcraft.” I get the “craft” part because of Minecraft, but the players do not spend their time in seclusion; they team up many times for games or to build shops. Hmm…

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

TMNT Throwback Thursday

I was listening to some music from Spotify while exercising and it began playing the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song. It reminded me how when I was younger I thought they said, “When the evil Shredder of Tex,” instead of “When the evil Shredder attacks.” For a long time I wondered why the Ninja Turtles had such a problem with Texans.

This was almost as bad as when I thought the underworld door in The Real Ghostbusters animated series was saying, “Do not open until Tuesday,” instead of “Do not open until Doomsday.” I was terrified of Tuesdays for a long time.

Ah, youth, so many fond memories.

Every Block Challenge House

In a recent Minecraft video by Grian, he built a base out of every Minecraft creative block, but he could only use the block once. He later challenged the audience to do the same. I managed to do it, though it looked like something ready for Halloween. I then ran with the idea.

My plan was to use the normal construction blocks for the walls and roof: wood, concrete, etc. I then used the storage type blocks for the flooring: barrels, shulker boxes, etc. The normal crafting blocks, like the stonecutter tool and anvil, were just placed as normal–as was the bed. I used trapdoors for windows. And the house part of the base contained many doors.

Using the seeds was fairly easy, I just did a normal farm. I used fence posts and gates (and some trapdoors) to build a holding pen for the pigs, cows, and so on. I dug a hole for using the various fish buckets and created a “pond.” I used the lava bucket to make a place to throw away unneeded items. Using the other spawn eggs was easy; just spawn them in.

As for all the different colored beds, I made a Halloween campsite with the campfire. I then used a trick from SystemZee to place the bed a block down and cover it with carpet in order to make it look like a sleeping bag.

The hardest ones to use were the items you can’t place like armor. I used an armor stand for one set of armor, but the rest had to go into a chest since I could only use one armor stand. Most of the unplaceable items went into chests, except for one that could be used in an item frame.

You can see some of the photos I took while working on it over on Instagram.

Hail FOWL?

Brief spoiler warning for the “Moonvasion” episode of Disney’s DuckTales.

At the end of the “Moonvasion” DuckTales episode, we see F.O.W.L (the Fiendish Organization for World Larceny) watching the McDuck clan as they celebrate their victory over the (planet) Moon. The High Command is afraid that Scrooge and friends’ adventures endanger the world, but they aren’t worried about the world’s safety; they want the world protected so they can terrorize it. FOWL decides to give the McDucks their final adventure. It is also revealed that the members of High Command are the vultures who are Scrooge’s financial advisers.

I found the fact that FOWL is ran by these vultures intriguing. Here are the leaders of a terrorist organization working within Scrooge’s business under his nose–kind of like how Hydra operated within SHIELD in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Both Hydra and FOWL are secret global organizations; and now, both have been hiding under the noses of their respective heroes feeding off the success of the good guys.

I further saw a strange connection to FOWL and Hydra when I watched a YouTube video by DuckTales Squad 2017. The video shows season three teaser character images Disney showed at Comic-Con. The list included pretty much every Disney Afternoon character, such as Chip and Dale.

So, it looks like Clan McDuck might be running into other heroes while dealing with the secret global organization FOWL. They could possibly gather the characters for a battle with FOWL like in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I find it funny that it might be Scrooge, a wealthy “person,” meeting these other heroes (ahem, Tony). And isn’t it interesting that the “Moonvasion” episode brought together all the previously known characters, such as Darkwing, to fend off an alien invasion. Sounds slightly familiar. And who did the Avengers face off against after the Chitauri? Hydra.

That being said, I hope it is true because I would love to see a return of the Justice Ducks. Scrooge (or more likely the kids) gather the other Disney Afternoon characters and create the Justice Ducks so they can battle FOWL. I think it’d be awesome to see Scrooge stand there and go, “Justice Ducks…” uh, what would be their catchphrase? “Flock together?” “Fly?”

Also if there was more of a connection between FOWL and Hydra, we could have a ton of Hail FOWL memes. It’d be great. Though instead of “hail” what would it be?

Let me know in the comments section what you think should be the Justice Ducks’ battle cry and what FOWL members would say to greet each other.

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

The Herobrine Exists Theory

With the revival of Minecraft, there comes many new videos and theories about the game’s hidden lore. The YouTube channel The Game Theorists is just one of those looking into various theories.

It is pretty obvious that some kind of civilization existed before you (the player) arrived. There are ruined structures, like the temples and the strongholds. And it seems that civilization is trying to start up again, hence the villagers.

With it being October, I plan to tell a ghost story–a Minecraft ghost story. You guess it. It’s a theory about Herobrine. (Not that big of a surprise since it was in the title.)

Supposedly, Herobrine is a mob or something that appears in worlds at random. He is always seen from a distance and vanishes. He looks like the default Steve character, except for glowing eyes. Some believe him to be a ghost or a glitch in the game code. But, maybe, he’s supposed to be there.

Maybe, he’s one of the ancient builders.

Obviously, something happened to the previous builders. What it was is up for debate. The Game Theorists say that the builders accidentally unleashed the Wither; they couldn’t beat it so they had to retreat to strongholds. They then evacuated to the End.

However it happened, the point remains that they had portal technology. They could go to the Nether or to the End. What if there was a lab accident while working on the prototype? And let’s say a guy who looks like Steve is caught in the blast. He is then trapped between worlds, blinking in and out. Maybe Herobrine is just trapped.

Or Herobrine could be something even more. Maybe he knew that their civilization was dying but wanted to warn the next one so he made a time machine, but it malfunctioned and he is phasing in and out of time. Wouldn’t that be something if he was a messenger trying to prevent history from repeating itself?

So next time you hear a story about someone seeing Herobrine, don’t laugh because it just might be some lost soul.

Happy Halloween.

Storycraft and Minecraft

I watch a lot of Minecraft videos on YouTube–probably too many–particularity Yolocraft from Blitzwinger and UnlimtedMagic and Hermitcraft with Grian.

I was thinking about these videos while mindlessly (and then frustratingly) trying to level up my Minecraft villagers. When I finally got them done, I realized I’d set up a pretty good Minecraft world. I jokingly said that I should do my own server and call it Storycraft. It could be a place for writers and filmmakers. I mean, many of the Minecraft stuff is “make your own story.” Adventure maps, role-playing, and so on. Grian on Sept. 22 finished a saga where he was a hippie trying to get his time machine back from Area 77.

But then I just laughed and realized I shouldn’t try to play Minecraft when I have only had five hours of sleep.

What kind of funny “craft” ideas do you have for Minecraft? Do you think any writers or filmmakers would even be interested in a Storycraft idea? Let’s discuss in the comments below.

Don’t forget to like, share, and follow.
