Hey guys, Mega here. I present to you...


Lore for anyone who can't read what's on the image

Day 1

I be sail'n on my ship. It be a day so far, 'n it's boring. Only sea so far.


Day 31

A whole month be pass'n. Still sea. No land! I be bored.


Day 554

It be more than an entire year! As I be sailin' the seas, somethin' caught me eyes. Yarr, land! I be sailin' to the land, when I be notic'd somethin' wrong. Ya ground be stone, 'n there be weird noises. I' found myself standin' right front o' a giant tower! I be park'n me ship next to another's. Yarr, there better be booty, and no other peop'l! I be playin' smart, and wait'n 'till the sun comes up to go in the tower. When I head'n to me docked ship, I found some booty! I don't be know'n how to read English, only yar pirate talk, so I be copying the booty onto me journal:

                "Legends say a man named Steve first settled here in the rocky plains. Steve was a known hero- he conquered the nether, made ships in outer space, and even built the heavens themselves. Steve rode here on his mighty dragon, the one that was used to slay the demons of the nether. The one that was used to conquer the heavens. He built a mighty city- one that measured hundreds and hundreds of kilometers. One that, if somebody tried to take the city, they would never take it, because of the sheer size of the city, and the limited supply of food. One that dropped even the most advanced builders' jaws. Walking around the entire city would take months. This city was far ahead of its time. They had electricity. Steam powered machinery. Mining trucks that did not need men to operate. Minecraftians lived happily in their homes, doing whatever they wanted to do. However, one day, Steve suddenly fell ill. The darkness of The End consumed the man, ending his life.

                A few thousand years later, the entire city was destroyed, its name with it. The sea level rose thousands of feet, flooding the entire city with water. Some houses were destroyed by the water, others were slowly eroded away. There seemed to be nothing left.

                I believe I have found the only evidence that the city does exist. I was sailing my ship, and suddenly, this caught my eyes. A huge tower. On the small piece of land where the tower still somehow stood after thousands of years, there were still working machinery. Drills kept operating. Trucks kept collecting and piling. Pistons kept pumping, redstone kept working, pipes kept pumping. As I entered the huge front gate, I saw that many have already attempted to go in. None seemed to have lived to tell the tale. Inside was a huge, glowing power core, somehow still working, pumping trillions and trillions of volts through its tubes. This couldn't be... no! Could it be? Is this building Staeglon?

                Staeglon was Steve's most prized building. It was the biggest one, made to stand, operate, and store. Its power core generated a billion volts per day. Staeglon contained massive pipes, used to transport steam to power the mining operation. Staeglon was, according to legends, the power source for the entire city. It once generated a lot more electricity for the people. After Steve built Staeglon, he didn't just stop there. Steve created a huge mining operation. Staeglon's left and right wings were used to store rocks and minerals Steve's machines mined out. Staeglon was said to be haunted. Anyone who went in would be dead.

                If you are reading this, and there is a ship floating next to yours, please know I have failed to find whether or not the legends are true. Do not enter this tower. Your curiosity will kill you. This place is haunted. Steve's ghost still lurks, killing any who trespasses. Wish me luck... I'm going in at sunrise."

                Whew, that be a long piece 'o booty! I wonder what it be say'n. Tomorr'w, sunrise, I be robbing yar ship next to mine. Then I be explor'n the tow'r. Wish me luck!


Day 555

                Robb'n the ship took all day! The man had a lot of booty. Yarrr! I be sink'n his ship, too! I wonder where he be... No matter! I be enter'n the tower at sunset, 'n it be scary. Too very dark at night, 'n I be hear'n noises. Someth'n be stabb'n me 'n I start'd bleed'n. I be runnin' back to me ship, and treat'n the wound. I wonder what it be... I didn't see no man. Perhaps a ghost? I be enter'n the tower tomorrow morn'n, so I be seeing no ghost, and so it is not scary.


Day 556

(This journal entry was written before the pirate entered Staeglon)

                I be enter'n the tower for real today. I be exited! When I be enter'n yesterday, I be seein' an entire pile 'o rocks. With booty inside! I be min'n it today. I be equipped with me diamond armor and tools. Nothn' can stop me now! I be invincible! I'm leaving the ship now, will be writ'n more once I come back to me ship!

Agreeing with Epic Max. Could use more depth/detailing, but the size of this is bloody well impressive. +1 diamond :)

The building could be a little more detailed, but I have to admit that the scale of it is impressive.

Here's a diamond.

I really didn't have time to detail it too much, because I wanted this thing to be huge and it was a solo build. However, I will keep that in mind next time. Thanks for the advice!

For a solo build, this is impressive. I think you deserve to make it to the finals

Got it! Added spoiler with lore in it. The "comic" lore thing is just for looks.
