Level 18 : Journeyman Blacksmith
Day #1
It has been 3 weeks since I left for this adventure to seek new lands, but my steak and water will only last 2 more days at most. And I'm starting to lose hope that there's anything out here... wait what was that? Did I just see a dark spot about two hundred blocks away? If I did, I must head over there it's the only sign I've seen, so I must find out if I just saw nothing or not.

I row my oars towards where I thought I saw the dark spot, and sure enough, after a few minutes, I saw it. I saw land! I was filled with excitement and I started rowing faster and faster to reach land before nightfall, so that I could build what I call a "bare minimal supply home". "And to a new land I go!"

From the side of the island that I could see was: A mountain with a river running down it, a forest with a type of tree that I've never seen before and a beach that was on the side closest to me. This island looked untouched by any player or Minecraftian, I don't even think hostile mobs has spawned on this island paradise yet.

When I reached the island, I picked up my boat, put it in my inventory and brought out my sword. I walked towards the forest and checked out this new wood, it was tougher than jungle wood and at it's base was 9 blocks in diameter. And the trees were 80 blocks tall, and the leaves stretched at the top from what appeared to be 35-50 blocks wide. I was blown away by the size of the tree and I fell backwards and just watched in amazement and awe as I laid back to look up at the trees.

I got back up and decided to go check out the mountain, mostly to see if anything was different about that too. I just looked at the mountain at first and it towered over the trees like the block limit to dark oak trees, then it hit me. How is the blocks spawning so high? The block limit was 256 but the mountain was 200 blocks tall at least! And the island was 30 blocks above the sea level at the base of the mountain, so that would make it around 300 blocks tall at its peak.

I stumbled backwards in utter shock at the law defying mountain, and hit my head on something or just passed out because I woke up at nightfall. "Wait I forgot to build a shelter... I guess it's another night in the dirt." I said. I looked around and saw some mobs I never saw before, but I didn't have time to look at them closely, because I was too busy digging a hole for safety and to avoid death...

When morning came around I dug out of my hole and peeped over the edge, I saw the usual mobs burning. Skeletons and zombies mostly, but there were some that I'd never seen before that were also burning, like: A grayish mob that was hunched over, but even with that it was still two blocks tall, it also had heads all over it with green eyes. And now I'll tell you where the heads were, it had one in between its shoulders, there were two on it's upper back, with one on the lower back and it had one on each arm around the elbow.

And there was another creature, that had a humanoid type body, that came in many different colors (mostly ranging from green to red), and was 3.5 blocks tall, it also had a tail around the back with a stinger (that was dripping some green liquid). I haven't even told you what it main body looks like yet. Its entire body was coated in a type of black scale similar to the ender dragon's scales, its head had a massive jaw that from my point of view it looked like it could snap an iron block in two and last but not least were its arms. 1.5 block long things that had impossibly sharp claws on them. I even don't think my friend's sharpness V iron sword back home was sharper than those claws!

Day #2
I got up and went on to do my usual routine, of: Chopping trees, building a house and going mining. But when I went into the mine there were some ores I've never seen before, I found the common ones (aka copper, silver, aluminium, coal and iron) and a few rarer ones. (like: gold, lapis, pig iron and cobalt) But I had no clue what some of these ores did.

But at this point you may be bored of the constant new information being added along the way, but I only have one thing to say... this is my life so how I write this down is how I experienced it. So please respect how it is written. But if you're not bored good job on making it this far.

Now back to my story. Where was I? Ah yes I'd just finished mining... so when I went home to my beautiful house in one of these gigantic trees (you could say it was a tree masion). And I ran to the furnace room to add a few more furnaces to the room and also to smelt my new ores, after they had finished smelting I made a cobalt sword and iron armor with copper chainmail under it.

And before I knew it day 2 on this island was over, but I was ready this time. So I ventured out and spent the whole night getting my mob kill streak up to a very high degree. And returned home with the spoils of war.

Day #11
I've gotten more settled in the days since day 2, and I haven't done the past few days because nothing much has happened. But now to tell you what happened... I was just walking on the beach when I saw something floating at a distance, I put my boat in the water a rowed towards it. Lying on this slab of wood was a little boy that couldn't be more than 6 years old.

I took the child and rowed back to shore, and took the child to my home, and later when I went to check on him, and my first axe crafted on this island "Old Glory" was missing! And even worse she only had one durability left! I ran throughout the house looking for the boy, but I couldn't find him.

"If that child left this house he's probably dead by now, if he's lucky he can respawn and find his family when or if he respawned." I had said as I went out the door.

I searched for hours, but couldn't find him. I finally gave up the search when I found "Old Glory" on the ground with the axe head cracked and that the sharp edge had fallen off. Then I just sat there trying to figure out why the kid took the axe, but then I saw the small boy using the shadow of a tree to try and hide himself from me. And then I noticed that he was crying.

Now lets take a second to explain when the child looked like. He was in black muddy shoes, drenched white pants and a blue shirt, and his eyes were green, but the strangest thing about this kid was he had silver hair. Which was quite odd for someone his age, but nevermind left continue.

I waved towards the child to come closer and showed him a piece of steak, and his eyes lit up as he ran towards me. I gave him the steak and asked him what his name was.

He replied with his tiny little face "Sawmel." he then smiled at me.

"Do you mean Samuel?" I had asked him, and he nodded his head vigorously. "Samuel want to come home with me?" I queried and he nodded again.

So I led him to my house and made a room for him, and we went to sleep because night had fallen as we were heading home, and I hadn't slept the night before.

Day #24
Samuel has learned how to hunt and he can almost use an axe as well as me now, and I made him a toy "axe" and called it "Old Glory Mk:2", he really likes his toys abd I think I'm starting to grow fond of this boy. But if someone comes by I'll have to send him back to where he's from.

Samuel seems to be more cheerful today than he has been since he arrived, also when I asked him why. He said he was waiting someone, but other than that nothing special happened today.

Day #37
Ah, nothing like a day to relax and relive the back tension from carrying around various reandom things from place to place, and in the distance Samuel "Silver" (I named him that because of his silver hair, and because he couldn't remember his own name) was playing in the sand.

Then the unexpected happened, an explosion was heard in the distance. I signaled for "Silver" to follow me from a short distance, so if something got me he'd be safe. When I reached where the explosion came from I saw a woman lying on the ground and she probably didn't have more than 1.5 hearts left, so I ran down to help her and I somehow triggered a second explosion. Which launched me at least 30 blocks into the air and when I hit a nearby body of water I was almost knocked out by hitting the surface, so I could only watch as people came and took "Silver" and the girl. But shortly after I did black out.

Day #38?
I think I was knocked out for a day, but I don't know. I am sad that this shall be my final day on this island paradise, but all good things come to an end. And I shall search for Samuel Silver my adopted son, and won't rest until I find him, I am bringing my sword "Old Glory Mk:2" and all my food and I shall set out to find him.

But aside from that, if you found this you either found the one I left in my house on the island or the one I carry where ever I go, if it's the later then I am most likely dead and you recived this from someone else. That is all I must be going now.

(The end?)
So what did you think of my story? Please tell me in the comments below.

Thank you for the compliment.
Good luck, but it kind of ends bad, I think. But good luck, anyhow.

How does it end bad?
Well, it doesn't really, but it's kind of a cliffhanger. I really like it!
This is really detailed & flowing, I bet you'll do great <3 :3

Oh wait! I forgot to say that if you want this can become a side story I do. (Aka the origins of Samuel W. Silver and this J.P.S. guy) But I'd start it after I finished TloS and TloA.
