I haven’t posted in over a week, but don’t worry! I’m back and have done a lot of work in the world of Vellichor, starting with getting my favorite animals collars. Since I had done a lot of breeding and I didn’t want to kill any of the original animals, I put the collars on them first. Then came my favorite; a female brownish-tan, splotched cow. She’s second generation, but I still love her.
After doing this, I spend a long, long while chopping down trees in my little tree farming area. I only needed some birch for the second floor, but seeing as I had nothing better to do, I harvested the others as well. I got about 2 stacks of birch, spruce, and dark oak, so I don’t think I have to get more logs anytime soon. I also got really annoyed by the lake being too shallow for me to swim in, so I spent a harrowing hour deepening it. I’m quite happy with it, though I still need to make a bridge across to the hen house and also the animal pen on the other side of the mountain.
After being bored (and despite the fact this always ends badly), I went on an adventure. I plowed through the dark oak woods and ended up in a desert. It would have been great if I hadn’t already gotten all the sand I could possibly need. Still, I went further into it and found a pillager tower! Obviously, I ran straight in, destroyed the staircase so the pillagers could get in, looted the place, and jumped off the side. I almost died, but that’s what you do for shiny objects.
I kept going past the spire of doom, went into an acacia biome and found a village! There I procured several emeralds and two collars from villager trades. One was a pretty black with a turquoise sort of gem and the other was a bright pink with a more greenish gem. I headed back home with my findings and decided to drop them off.
I then headed in the opposite direction of the desert and acacia village, finding myself riding (more like stumbling) my horse through the woods. I eventually found the coast and another village. I was excited, then I saw wings and hid underground. Thankfully this dragon didn’t spot me and I waited until it left. It was nighttime and I was feeling adventurous so I set my spawn in a little hole I created and went to get some goodies.
The dragon was sleeping. Despite making tunnels and trying my best to outrun the other one, I never once thought to consider that it would sleep. After feeling incredibly stupid for that other time I went to face a fire dragon, I ran to the village when I noticed something on the side of the mountain. I ran over there after confirming there was no sea serpent or otherwise dangerous creature nearby. I was about to walk into what looked like a custom cave when a cyclops picked me up and took about half my health. I immediately ran to the ocean and jumped.
I was terrified but not persuaded to leave just yet. Like an absolute idiot, I dug a tunnel under the lair and poked holes under the chest so I’d get the loot. This worked for the chests until I got to the last one. I hopped up since it was a bit higher up and got grabbed. Unlike last time, I did not escape and I did not survive. So, yet again, I’m left to spend the next post trying to get my stuff back.
