It has been 100 years since the Dwarf and the Spaceman, Minecraftiao s Mightiest Heroes, disappeared without a trace allowing the evil that is Israphel to cast his sinister shadow, blanketing the once lush lands with his cursed sands and claiming it as his own.


With its last hope gone Minecraftia was defenceless against Israphelo s coming apocalypse. The Skylords, Dwarves and Wizards tried to mount a defence against his overwhelming forces but without the Heroes to lead them they were quickly defeated, crushed beneath the evil overlord's heel.


Those few soldiers and villagers who managed to survive rallied together and fled across the biomes to escape Ispraphelo s wrath but the consuming sands were too fast and the face of Minecraft was changed forever. Now all that is left are a few pockets of civilization scattered across the eternal desert, the air too thin to breathe so communities are now forced to take shelter in glass biome-domes filled with the last few remains of Minecraftiao s flora and fauna. They act as oasiso s in a sea of sand, a barren wilderness that is only inhabited by Israphelo s evil undead forces and the bandit Sandlords.


Rising out of what was left of the Skylords and Dwarven races and a new force started to form, a cutthroat band of pirates and scoundrels called the Sandlords. Sailing through the vast deserts called o The Wasteo in dwarf made o sandskiftso the Sandlords search for riches and trouble plundering what is left of the water and plant life strewn around the desert, fighting off other Sandlords and Israphelo s army to claim his prize whatever the risk.


Captain Jack Scarlett is one such Sandlord, commander of the sandskift Hourglass and scourge of the Seven Dunes. He sails through wasteland with his crew of dwarves, humans and testificates, only ever pulling into civilian port to sell his goods and restock his ship. Like all those that choose to travel outside of the biome-domes he wears an oxygen tank and mask allowing him to breath in the thin desert air. He lost both his parents, lower legs and his left eye during one of Israphelo s Creeper attacks when he was a boy. He was lucky to have survived having been brought back from the brink of death by a potion of mud, feathers and golden apples and then had his legs replaced by dwarven build prosthetics that allow him to walk with relative ease but with a noticeable limp.


He is a ruthless captain and has been in many battles which have made him hard, but he respects his crew and treats them like family; well as much as someone like him could. He does not fear Israphelo s forces and seeks them out any chance he gets, maybe to avenge his parento s death or just because he knows they always have the best treasure, regardless these reckless attitude it has made him and his ship a tale of legendo ¦.

Shiver me timbers, shiver me shoes
Yo Ho and a chest of gold
This is be the tale of a scoundrel crew
Yo Hum and di-a-monds.

Their ship cuts through the sands of gold
Lead by a captain whoo s a sight to behold
Hair the colour of blood and a soul of black
His ship be one ye would never attack.

Shiver me timbers, shiver me bones
Yo Ho and a chest of gold
All ships in their sights are quickly owned.
Yo Hum and di-a-monds.

This motley gang, they pillage The Waste,
And all their enemies disappear without trace!
Every man on board will kill ye for a drink,
Stealing all your water with a smile and a wink.

Shiver me timbers, shiver me life.
Yo Ho and a chest of gold
Evade the Hourglass or else there be strife!
Yo Hum and di-a-monds.

With Scarlett sails up and the wind at their back,
There be none more feared than Captain Jack
Plundering the sands and fighting the fight,
Best sleep with one eye open tonight.

Shiver me timbers, shiver me tale
This be the Age of Israphel!

Thanks. I really like the idea of a new chapter of SOI where everything's gone wrong. Always loved parallel story arcs.

Parallel Story Arcs are fun,indeed. Its almost like those people who look at history and wonder what would happen if certain events didn't happen, for instance, if the titanic didn't hit an iceberg.

Yeah, where if you change one thing from history is changes everything around you and you're now stuck in is 'what if..." world. Samurai Jack is a great example of this, not to mention the parallel stories they had on Star Trek. Yesterday's Enterprise is my favourite episode from TNG because one second you've got your standard so-so episode and 2 seconds later the entire world is at war with UFP on the verge of being destroyed. Love it! :D

Was this even meant for the contest? Well done either way!

Level 62 : High Grandmaster Geek
spacemonkiee
Yeah, it was, but I just didn't know how to make post-apoc interesting to me (not really my theme of choice) so I just decided to go out on a limb with my idea and develop a story for my skin rather than just a simple monster or survivor. A desert pirate does seem a little out of left field but it helped tap into my creative side and get the skin done.

Well Good Job! Apocalypse is a hard genre, I realised my planneds kin would have to be HD. Now I might work on a stormtroopa(split reason shirt)

Level 62 : High Grandmaster Geek
spacemonkiee
Yeah, not really something I know that much about, other than the basic mainstream stuff. Didn't even think of mutants until after seeing them in the contest. Do you mean a Star Wars Stormtrooper cause that would be awesome. Love SW. :D

Well because I'm a newbie, I want something original. There is a t-shirt with one of those turtles from mario, a "troopa" with a stormtrooper helmet, therefore a "stormtroopa". I suck at stormtrooper heads though. And be free to steal the idea, I would prefer it if someone good did it. I love SW too.

spacemonkiee
That's a great idea for a skin. Mix of both originality and work with two things people already like. Have a look at some of the TMNT, Troopa and Stormtrooper skin already on PMC and see what they did to make their skins look good. Try and replicate them but adding your own touches. I'm sure it'll look awesome. :D

I think Israphel should have his own village, or base, or army, or whatever, called Israphelia. (Is-Ra-Phil-E-Uh)

You need to read the story. If you've read the story then think more along the lines of Mad Max. If you still don't think it's acceptable then I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

Would you maybe think about doing a version of this in blue because I prefer blue to red and I think it would look cool. you could call it Captain Jack Colbolt or somthing?

Yeah, totally. I was originally tossing up between blue and red and it wouldn't take much to change the jacket to blue. I'm on holidays at the moment but once I get back I'll make one for you.
