Level 17 : Journeyman Explorer
We next find our intrepid adventurer on a flat, very flat, verdant, and rather empty plain. "Kind of like my stomach," he thinks, but wait! A surprise pushes the strong, but not yet identified craving into a back corner of his mind. "What is this...?"

Duhhhhhh... Dahhhhhh.... Dohhhhh........... Dahh Dummm!!!!!! (bom bum bom bum bom bum)... A theme from A. Clarke's 2001: A Space Odyssey starts playing with increasing volume...

"What? Hmmmm... OK." Undaunted, our adventurer ventures forward towards the giant structure. "I could swear I've seen something like this before," he thinks, "but maybe not in such a ... uhhh ... looming ... way."

He sees a doorway, a feeling of climax comes over him, perhaps in part due to the crescendoing brass. He enters through the way. Da Dahhhhhhhhhhhh!

Ba ba baummmmm baaaaa buuuuuuu baummmmmmmmmmmm!!!!! and SILENCE.

Intrepid Adventurer almost has time to think, "Wow! If each of those floating head-like things has its own neural net somehow interconnected via some kind of bio-compatible energy waves to form a vast neural net, this ... um ... room ... might just be able to read my mind!" But before he could register that thought, a waft of steamy pumpkin from each jack-o-lantern informs him of just what it is he has been hankering for!!!

With a glissando of a xylophone, the room changes. I. A.'s favorite music ("Not that Space Odyssey thing again!!!!"). Oh, ok, something very UPBEAT begins to play in the room.

"Perfect!!!" So, Intrepid is off!

To harvest his pumpkin.

Take some loops around the sugarcane slide!

"Hey, why not again!?" Remembers to at last process his sugar cane.

And then heads over there for the final ingredient...

...an egg!

Hmmm, that's all there is to it?


"This is a great place to hang out, make some cool friends, and just bask in the glow!"

"Oh," swallows, "Happy Halloween, everybody!"

If you want to explore Intrepid's giant jack-o-lantern, @ approx x=0, z=0, download the world linked above. The um, neural net only is encoded in the schematic, if you prefer to set up your own. Designed in Minecraft 1.8.9 with the help of WorldEdit and a small cubical jack-o-lantern (ok, many, MANY small cubical jack-o-lanterns).

Thanks for the invite! I'm sort stuck back in time, version 1.8.9. It might not work for me, though it looks fun and looks like I'll survive maybe half a (Minecraft) day!
