I broke all my iron tools already, which tells me something about the oxygen or carbon or something in this last set was way off. It had been really rainy the day I smelted that iron, so maybe it was the weather, or maybe it was something in the ore, I don’t know.
It does mean I get to sleep in my most comfortable bed tonight, though, so I’m excited about that.
More ore above me so I’m still digging up. I can hear zombies rolling off the walls and down to smack the ground below.
I wonder if they have some kind of pupal zombie state where they hang from the walls until adults?
Seems dumb, but so does an exploding giraffe-corgi.
There’s a particularly nice sound when an exploding giraffe-corgi falls from a great height into a pool of lava.
Though I’m glad they don’t explode because I’d probably be burned to death, I’m simultaneously disappointed to not see a lava fireball show.
Now I’m almost sure this isn’t the same canyon I was digging in earlier, but it might be one of the earlier canyons?
OK, so here’s a thing that keeps happening:
I dig through a wall into a wide cavern with no signs of ore in any direction.
Way above my head is a torch embedded in the wall and I think, for a split second, “Oh my cod! I found someone! There was someone else here!”
And then I recognize the mark that I started carving into torch handles a while ago (for just this reason) indicating that no, this is my torch, and I’ve been digging here before, which is why there’s no ore…
…but there’s also no walls or floors, and I’m usually pretty particular about them.
So am I digging into areas I was legitimately in?
Am I digging into areas where someone’s placed old torches I’d left in other areas, just to confuse me?
Am I digging through time?
Or am I just breathing some heinous fumes from being too close to the lava?
Got tired of making tools so I’m digging up toward the surface, following a vein of ore… and it almost literally dumped me out into a canyon.
Problem is I can’t tell from this height whether it’s the canyon I was just working in, or a different canyon.
It’s got plenty of falling zombies either way.
