In Search of Diamonds

A music video made in Minecraft about Minecraft? Genius is a word I use all too often about Minecraft and the people who play, explore and build in it. This… this is genius. Like Unlike

Kobold Hall for Minecraft is DONE!

I’ve been building Kobold Hall, the adventure/delve presented in the 4e D&D Dungeon Master’s Guide, using Minecraft . It’s taken a while, and I’m happy to say that’s it is now complete. My main goal in this has been to get a sense of what a dungeon map actually looks like when turned into a walkthrough 3D map. …

Awesome scenes from Minecraft number 12,678

Kobold Hall for Minecraft, the video preview walkthrough

Here’s Kobold Hall from the Fourth Edition D&D Dungeon Master’s Guide recreated in Minecraft. I’m up to Encounter Three so far, so it’s strictly a work-in-progress. Please excuse the horrendous framerate – Minecraft plays wonderfully on my little netbook, but fraps kills it stone dead. I’ll find another way of recording the finished dungeon. If anyone…

Building Kobold Hall in Minecraft, part four

Only in Minecraft can the following two statements be true: “I was killed by a pig” and “I’m sorry. I got distracted and built a pyramid instead.”. I’m part way through re-creating Kobold Hall from the 4e D&D DMG in Minecraft, and things are starting to get more than a little silly. We’re up to Encounter Three which is, in …

Building Kobold Hall in Minecraft, part three

In contrast to the first Encounter in Kobold Hall, the second one is just a Nice Big Room. Well, when I say nice, I mean “scary tomb chamber”, but you get the idea. There’s no anteroom, no long corrodor and no Pool of Doom this time around. Instead, there’s four stone coffins in the centre (every single group …

The Creeper Goblin Caption Contest

There is a Creeper. There is a Goblin. What are they saying? Will the Creeper go BOOOOM!, or will the Goblin gain a new friend for life (a very, very, short life)? Only you can decide. And yes, I made a Creeper for DAZ Studio. Well, someone had to. Winner gets a one of a kind ungraved no-prize. Comment away! Like Unlike

Building Kobold Hall in Minecraft, part two

In which I dig dig dig dig dig the whole day through. I’m calling this Part Two rather than Day Two as days two, three and four merged together into an unholy flurry of digging, making fresh shovels by torchlight, then digging some more. I’m building Kobold Hall from the Fourth Edition DMG inside Minecraft , and developing a healthy respect for…

Special bonus: Creeper for 4e

Here’s everyone’s favourite Minecraft monster all stated out and ready to feature in your next D&D game. Killing a monster was never so dangerous. I picture Creepers as something like Yellow Musk Zombies. They are infected with a plantlike fungus which causes the poor critter to explode, releasing a multitude of near-invisible spores into the air. If a creature inhales them, on his eventual death…

Building Kobold Hall in Minecraft, day one

Let’s not beat around the bush folks. Dungeon building as HARD! I’ve decided to construct the Kobold Hall from the 4e DMG inside Minecraft to give somewhere cosy for all those Zombies and Skeletons to live. If all goes according to plan, I might even host it up on a Minecraft Server someplace so y’all can try your hands at exploring the fabled Halls yourself…

Kobold Hall for Minecraft: coming soon

Take one Dungeon from the DMG & a guy with a shovel, and who knows what can happen. Watch this space! Like Unlike

Lessons learned from Minecraft, part one

I’ve been playing rather a lot of Minecraft lately, and I’m not alone. For those few of you who don’t know, this is a game which has taken the intertubes by storm, a cuboid sandbox nirvana where you can build, explore dungeons, create whole cities, and much more. You begin on a procedurally generated random world, population…
