Day 2!

Day 2 of Minecraft Camp is off to a great start.  Crafter Alexander figured out the (very confusing) Custom NPCs Mod, and wrote several lines of sequential dialogue for a big baddie he’s working on for a quest.  It’s very cool!

Crafter Evan has been begging for ninja armor, so he and Crafter Steven are building a sweet ninja dojo.

Crafter Alex is crafting weapons and furniture for the other campers in exchange for emeralds and other goods.

Counselors Bryson and Rachael built an incredible—and intimidating—ziggurat, which will factor into a major storyline after our morning break.



Brandigor’s Tomb

After our morning stretch break—with a light snack and some calisthenics outside—the Crafters raided Brandigor’s Tomb—unleashing an invasion of Zombie Pig Men and Magma critters!  Yikes!

Now, they’ve been tasked with finding the old village from last year’s camp.  What strange mysteries will this abandoned land hold?



The Battle of Brandigor

Students took on a big baddie, Brandigor the Dread Giant, this morning.  It was an epic battle, made possible with the Custom NPCs mod.  Camp Counselor Bryson Willis put together the quest–as well as a sweet ivory tower–this morning.

Brandigor had high hit points and attack, and could regenerate health (he lost his health regeneration ability when the students chanted “Shalalalala”–it was loud in the computer lab this morning).

During the battle, Brandigor fell from atop his mighty tower, and was finally defeated in the depths of Craterville.  Students received a sweet war hammer as their reward.

Day 2 of Crafting is Underway!

We’re back for another day of Minecraft Camp!  Here’s the plan for today:

  • We installed the Custom NPCs mod, a perennial camp favorite.  We’ll begin playing around with that later this morning.
  • Camp Counselor Bryson Willis has constructed “Trump’s Vault,” which is full of goodies.  It’s hidden in a forest to the west of the fishing village he built yesterday.
  • Players are still working on their home village, and are (slowly) colonizing “Newland.”

Here are some views of the sunset from the Newland coast:

Who knew blocks could be so beautiful?
