Adventures in Minetest (tell your gameplay stories)

by Wuzzy » Fri Aug 26, 2016 15:20

If you have a great story to tell about a particulary exciting or interesting or funny game session you have played in Minetest, I would like to read about it here. If you had just completed a difficult quest, made an epic adventure, built an astonishing structure or have defeated a dangerous enemy or did something else which is worth telling, this is the right place to post it in. :-)

Stories can be short or long, doesn't matter. It can be about any subgame with any mod on any server. It would be nice if you mention these in your post. For simple “look what I've build” posts I would recommend to use one of the many screenshot threads, unless you also want to tell the story behind the building.
The only strong requirement I have is that you have to have actually played it. Please don't just invent stories out of the blue.



I will start with 2 of my own stories which I already have posted elsewhere, so I just post links:

I hosted a server for an hour, made two friends that I will never meet again, one of which spoke spanish. I built a nice house for each, and then had to leave. The end.

on my first day on Xanadu (old map) i went to search for a nice place.
after dieing twice from starvation, i finally found the the public farm, which was right near the spawn :P
after stuffing my bag with food i went adventuring again.
then the night came and a giant spider attacked me. i hid in an abandoned ruin, but the spider knew how to use stairs. i found a position where i could knock down the spider from the stairs before it could hit me. after a while i successfully killed the spider with bare hands :3
then i swam over the ocean (without a boat), grabbed some clay from a hole under a small tropical island on the way and finally arrived at the Burning Lands.
there i burned the clay into white baked clay and used it to build a tiny greek temple, which became later known as the Holy Tree Shrine.
then a lot of good stuff happened, blablabla, and eventually everything was lost when a giant mountain fell from the sky, destroyed everything and changed the landscape.
after some time i left the Burning Lands, since they could not be restored to their former shape.
the end :P

after that i founded the Hidden Ninja Village, but that is another story ;)

-snip-

I built nice things, then talked back to an admin and got banned. I made a new account, built some more nice things on the ocean, and tried to tell the admin who I was and that I wasn't going to do anything bad, went afk, and got banned. Xanadu admin sucks.

Ñe, he, he! :3

I was in "axaro's server", a "brazilian" troll tried to kill everybody, i killed him and then he killed me in a way of revenge.
I decide to left the server!

These are some of my stories on various Capture the Flag servers.

-Once I was playing as Team Red and assaulted blue's base. We killed EVERYONE and then after sometime, someone started an ambitious project to make the blue spawn into a giant execution pit. We tortured them for an hour or more (or less), and during the first part, I believe everyone competent left out of embarrassment.
-The next match, I WAS PLAYING AS BLUE, and I started an ambitious project to build a good base. Last match, blue's base had been a pit, the next match, it became a fortress with 4 block walls and 5 block frontal wall.
Screenshots here!
-Then I remember playing a match where I killed quite a few people with a wooden sword. The next match, during the build time, I bragged about it.
Then pops up this (girl?).
"You're mean"
WTF?!
Long story short, for multiple matches, (lets say she) continued on being an idiot, swearing whenever she died, calling everyone, especially me, mean, demanding apologies for being killed, and "avenging" herself. Everyone, I think, who even looked and absorbed the chat must of been like WTF??!!?!!! I mean, I was just ROFLOLED!
-Then I remember building a cobble "arena" on the "beaches of Normandy", and slaughtering several well armed people with IIRC a stone sword.
-Then I remember taking the opposite team's flag, spinning around for a few minutes, and then coming right back to their base. Actually, this happened several times.
-Then I remember joining a match in progress to find a HUGE wall, a totally HUMONGOUS wall that extended over ENTIRE boundary between red and blue to one side and partially to the other side. Seriously. HUMONGOUS. It was all the way up to hilarious, how HUGE that wall was! While we would struggle to build a decent base, these guys had the Great Wall of China in there!!
-Then I remember so many times, fighting against impossible odds in the opposing team's base, with a wood or stone sword, constantly jumping and spinning around, determined to get as many kills as possible before I most certainly died, only to escape and win the match.
-Then I remember a huge, beautiful fortress right in the middle of the beaches with a sniper tower that was heavily defended. But it fell anyway, and we went around climbing up and down the tower, looking for members of opposite team hiding out in the grounds. It was a shame when the game restarted.
-Then I remember getting a shotgun and several ammo packs, going to the other team's island, and standing on top of a faraway tree damaging their base.
-Then I remember getting in a hole near the other team's base with a SMG, but catching on a ledge halfway down, but seeing members of the opposite team falling all the way down.
-Then I remember "submarine warfare", where you would try to run while submerged in the deep parts of the sea, or end up fighting under the sea.
-Then I remember the arena traps, I already mentioned a bloody example above, we'd build a cobble arena in the middle of the beach and stay there and taunt opposite team members there to get slaughtered.
-Then I remember the effectiveness of arrows against pretty much everything else. I'd kill gun and steel sword armed people in seconds, and I myself would come to fear the sound of the arrows. An interesting effect was how the sound of empty guns sounded like arrows. So scary.
-And I remember several times throwing away all my equipment and weapons and raiding the enemy base empty hand - successfully. And once I had a pistol on me, but it ran out. I attacked anyway, and won the match.

Newest adventure on @test@, told by sorcerykid:
sorcerykid wrote:Last weekend's nomadic excursion with maikerumine and aidenminer was a blast! The goal was simple: travel by foot as far north as possible with only a wooden pickaxe, a wooden sword, and some apples. And most importantly survive!

We got together an impromptu team of people including 843jdc, Amaretto, BlueFireUn, jtee, kumma__, SaKeL, WoodDeNoche, and myself. It was truly a battle against all odds, forcing us to share a very limited supply tools and food while building makeshift shelters and fending off stone monsters.

Image

Needless to say, rnd beat us to the punch. He was the first to make it to 10,000 meters while the rest of us were struggling just to stay alive. By the time I arrived, he was already preparing his new basecamp!

Image

I immediately set out to gather materials. I dug my first mine to -500m, and emerged with a decent haul of diamonds, mese, copper, and iron. But, as luck would have it, my client crashed in the midst of a hoard of stone monsters. That meant walking 10,000m from spawn to collect my bones. To my surprise, I found this memorial designed by rnd: "here lies brave sorcery, fought valiantly till her last breath. was torn apart by fiendish monsters. You will stay in our hearts forever. R.I.P."

Image

Once, I did gather my wits (and my belongings), I was able to complete my very first outpost at 10,000 -- my new home away from home :)

One day, I went to this guy's protected city with some TNT. I then led him out of it, placed lots of TNT, and blew him and myself to the Mithril-Mine.
The other day, I invited another person near my house, where there was TNT buried under a tree, and blew myself up in front of her.

very creative =(^.^)=

but a deadly trap hole with hoppers to pick up the dropped items is even better :P
the "free diamonds" trick doesn't work anymore but you can still lure people in with cookies and cakes :3

When I started adding mobs to my horror mod, I built a survival world to test them on.
Originally they were REALLY hard to fight, and I spawned on a beach near a grassland biome.
I did have farming redo, so I could run through the world collecting food without fighting the monsters, but there were too many. Eventually I climbed a mountain to where there were less mobs(at that point in time none of them spawned on snow), and dug myself a cave. I managed to go down the other side of the mountain and collect wood without dying(it took me many attempts), and then started mining. Since I couldn't really move away from the cave, I built a big castle around it, until I had better weapons. The mobs couldn't be killed with stone or even bronze swords, and I couldn't farm food because it's always night with the horror mod. When I finally had a mese sword I could go out and get materials without dying, but not before I had enough bones to make an entire room out of them. Then I got bored and made a cactus, and it spread around the castle, and did a bunch of other boring things...

Thanks Wuzzy for sharing my story. That was perhaps one of the most exciting and memorable adventures I've ever had playing Minetest. In hindsight, I'm kind of glad I took the time to document it :)

For those that prefer the "less reading, more watching" alternative to storytelling, there's actually a video recording of the expedition on maikerumine's YouTube channel.
