    “There is a tale of a mountain, far away, that sits in the center of a King’s domain. But not just any King, THE KING. The King of the Creepers whose presence rules over all. It is said that this mountain can be found by following a road made from stars plucked down and forged into stone.

    “It is said that this ‘Star Road’ can be found by the observant where ice meets water and the traveler walks above the road. That this road leads deep into Creeper Land and that the brave will find a jail that is not a jail; complex of steel and fire.

    “The legend then goes onto explain the nature of this place, and how to progress beyond it, but it is a story that has lost meaning in the telling if it ever had any in the first place. I am not a man who believes in myth. I’ve been called a skeptic by some, and worse by many, but I am a man who believes in what he can see, and in looking for what he hasn’t.”

    “I don’t believe in Myth, but documents from a long-forgotten expedition are another manner entirely. That’s why I’m here. I’ve seen these ancient pictures, read the what remains of the the notes, and now I want to see the place for myself. I’ll make the legendary mountain fact. No doubt wondrous fact of epic proportions, but a real place rather then fiction with magic and vaguely worded riddles.

    “This is my Journal documenting the proverbial road to Mount Creeper. I once I’ve gone there and back this book will be full of the journey, and I intend to publish it so anyone can follow in my foot sets. Of course, this id just the rough draft; I’ll probably edit that part out before it goes to market.

    “But I’ve rambled on far to long for this introduction. Welcome to and enjoy The Journey To Mount Creeper.”

    This was delayed due to trouble with Photobucket being terrible but finally I have part 2 of The Journey to Mount Creeper

    “I arrive in the region at the hub, intend to follow the steps of a previous expedition as far as I can, and arrive at the hub of the region. Upon arrival I immediately take note of the terrain; this whole area is built on a glacier! By the look of things the ice hasn’t been reforming for a while now but even so it stretches out quite a ways.

    Photobucket

    “More important is that this answers one of the first questions I had going into this. The answer to ‘where ice meets water’ is almost painfully obvious now that I’ve seen this place, to the point that it doesn’t narrow down where to look beyond ‘not on land’. This, of course, is hardly helpful, so I decide to focus on the bit about walking above the road instead.

    “I assume that above does not mean on and yet out to find a road where this possible. It doesn’t take long to realize all almost all the roads in this area raise, suspended by pillars in the air and thus easy to walk above. Eventually though I find a road labelled the Low Road which seems to run along the ice. I figure this is as good a choice as any and better than any other I’ve seen so far so I set off along it and hope for the best.

    Photobucket

    “This Low Road is clearly an old one, showing signs of having been rebuilt many times. This fact reaffirms my decision; I for this road to be the right one it would need to date back at least far enough to be included in the legend. It is while I am mulling over these thoughts that I come to realize just why it is called the Low Road.

    Photobucket

    “This Road actually travels underneath the ice! It seems the point I entered was merely raised so as to allow entrance, and a quick conversation with the locals confirms that this road weaves in and out of the ice along its whole length. Where I suspected before I am sure now. This route will take me to the Star Road. I just need to make sure I recognize it when I see it.

    “Oh wait, what was that?”

    What was that indeed!? Tune in NEXT TIME to find out!

    Welcome to the next installment of the journey to Mount Creeper: Walk the Star Road pt1

    Photobucket

    ” ‘It is said that this ‘Star Road’ can be found by the observant where ice meets water and the traveler walks above the road’ Now that I’ve seen this it is abundantly clear what this passage meant. In order to reach the Star Road you must walk on the ceiling of the Low Road, above it and level with the frozen sea. I quickly backtrack and with some creative maneuvering quickly find myself on a glass causeway in the ice. it isn’t long before I reach where I stopped before.

    Photobucket

    “It seems that some local hooligan had a little joke with this place and put up some signs. I find the them and their joke rather appropriate so I leave them up and instead inspect the road itself. As you have no doubt noticed by now it is made out of solid glowstone! This explains the line about star’s in the myth. It is said that many previous cultures seeing glowstone would equate it with celestial bodies. And with the sheer quantity of it! For a material as rare as Glowstone to be used so frivolously and in such quantity simply boggles my mind, and bares further investigation of its own.

    “Of final note before I move on, Glowstone also radiates heat. not a hole lot, but enough to melt some of the ice around it. This is likely the origin of the last part of the passage about finding the road, where it mentions a place where water meets ice. Although my watch says hours have passed it seems only moments before I’ve encountered another marvelous structure.

    Photobucket

    “With a bit of prodding the locals tell me that it is an abandoned place called the Lava Garden. They say that it is usually safe but a common target of Greifers (the vile things) so I decide to climb it to see if I can see where this Star Road leads. Sure enough I make it to the top safely and am greeted by a wonderful view.

    Photobucket

    “This is going to be a long walk.”

    Will our intrepid hero escape the Lava Garden? How long will this journey be!? How long will we have to wait for the next update!!? Stay tuned to find out!

    The Journey to Mount Creeper: Walk the Star Road 2

    Photobucket

    “It is said that the journey is just as important as the destination. On a journey like this I could not agree more. Here we see a short tunnel, moving beneath the water, so as to pass safely beneath the tendrils of fallen lava without obstructing the marked boating lane. It is a simple construction, but the thought that must was when into it’s construction humbles my admittedly less generous sensibilities. The lava itself comes from an offshoot of some kind from the garden I climb previously, itself a wonderful structure.

    Photobucket

    “I have come to a fork. Based on the description of the legend I can only assume that the longer path is the correct one and this branch is a comparatively new addition. Of course there’s only one way to find out. I shall investigate the nearer structure in the morning.

    Photobucket

    “Truly this is an impressive structure. Though it connects to this road it can not be entered from this side of the nether. It rains down lava and menaces with spikes of great size. So powerful, so…uhh.

    “…WOAH! Almost lost track of time there! need to get along with this.

    Photobucket

    “I’ve passed monsters and dragon and big green dinasaurs, and nothing is stopping me now! But wait…what’s that? I MUST be seeing things, because that is just not possible. W-w-w-what could…IT’S THE VOID COME TO TAKE ME!

    Photobucket

    “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH-

    Photobucket

    “-HHHHHHHHHHHhhhh! Hah! Hah. huh.

    “Umm…I guess I must have had a nightmare. Yes, that’s it, a nightmare. Stranger things have happened on journey’s like this. I’ll just have to stay away from the local food next time. Right, the sun’s about to rise, I’d best get read to check out that structure.”

    And so ends another exciting chapter in THE JOURNEY TO MOUNT CREEPER. Stay tuned for for!

    And the answer is over a month!

    The Journey to Mount Creepr: Walk the Star Road 3
    Photobucket
    “The above is a photo I took outside of a wooded area the road passes through. Before now the road proved to be quite sturdy; even spanning small gaps without anything in the way of support, but here it seems to defy gravity itself. I don’t believe in the mystical. I’ve said as much earlier, but I cannot imagine what is keeping this road aloft. The construction, while sturdy, should simply not be able to hold its own weight, and although rare, glowstone has no such property that I am aware of. Perhaps some special property of this area allows such a structure to stand? Regardless, I am intrigued, and the only place I can hope to find answers in further onward.

    Photobucket
    “In a brief bought of carelessness I have fallen off the road. A quick search of my surroundings reveals that climbing back up should not be difficult, but I was lucky to remain uninjured. This is among the shorter drops I’ve seen on the road and certainly the easiest to climb back up from.

    Photobucket

    “But not too unlucky it seems! My path up the slope led this small structure into my site. It’s clearly not what I’m after, but it’s often the little things such as this that make for a great journey (and a more profitable documentary!). Maybe next time I ‘fall’ it won’t be an accident! Heh, although I’ll have to make sure I don’t almost break my shins next time.

    Photobucket

    “…And as you can see I’m back on the road. There’s not much to say here, but it was such a good picture that I had to include it (Note to self: REWRITE THIS PART).

    Photobucket

    It seems I’ve reached the beginning of the last leg of the road: The Realm of the King, or so the sign says. The sign is in good condition but clearly very old. The fact that it is here at all lends more credence to the existence of this mountain than anything else I’ve seen thus far. Oh, and you can’t read it from here, but the second sign says ‘You have been warned’.

    I am unconcerned about this threat; whatever left it is long gone, and with it any power it had. Still, it could also be a sign of traps. The road should be safe but once I reach the mountain proper I’ll have to be careful not to get shot full of arrows or crushed by boulders.

    And so ends another exciting episode of The Journey to Mount Creeper!

    Will it be another month before the next episode? Just how far behind schedule can this thing get anyway!? What will the Wayward Adventurer discover next!!? STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT!

    The Journey to Mount Creeper: The Entrance
    Photobucket

    “I’m going to call this one ‘The Spiral Stairs’. Well, ramp? Road maybe? Going to need to give this one a little more thought. Regardless I…wait a sec. Do you ever get the feeling that something is way earlier then normal? Well whatever, I ‘m sure it’ll pass. (Note to editor: Cut that last paragraph).

    “This seems to be the high point of the road, or at least close to it. I’m certain I’m close to the mountain now, so I’ve got to wonder if there’s a reason for that. My first guess would be the symbolic significance of someone walking high above the heads of everyone else, as would certainly have been the case when the road was built. Oh course, this is pure conjecture so…oh.

    Photobucket

    “Oh. That would do it. This can only be the entrance, and deeper path extending deep into the earth. The symbolism is obvious enough. It does look DEEP too. Well, only one way to find out how far it goes.

    Photobucket

    “That’s pretty deep aright. (That pun does not work at all). a jail that is not a jail; [a] complex of steel and fire. This room is a splitting image for the entrance from the myth. The parts of the floor that aren’t on fire are made of solid iron and the walls are obsidian. And I’m not sure, but the ceiling seems to be the face of a Creeper.

    “Yep, if this isn’t the right place then I’m not finding it.

    Photobucket

    “Now though I’m left with a problem. There are over 20 doors in this place, all made of solid steel, and all set up to lock behind me once I pass through. It doesn’t take a clever man to see that it’s designed to confuse and entrap people unfamiliar with the layout. I’d think that the myth made some mention of navigating this entrance, but if it ever did then it was lost long ago. I’ll just have to guess and guess right.

    “Here I go.”

    Photobucket

    “…Shit.”

    And so ends the most timely episode yet of The Journey to Mount Creeper

    How will our Adventurer find his way back into the entrance? Will we keep up this pace? Why is quality so bad? JOIN US NEXT TIME FOR THE ANSWERS TO ONE OF THESE QUESTIONS AND MORE!!

    The Journey to Mount Creeper: Into the Mountain
    I’ve done it! It took a long time to find my way back here but I made it, and I’ve gotten into the mountain! It took a while to devise the correct path to take but with patience I finally deciphered the clues and figured out it was [][][][][][][][][][][][] Behold! The Seat of an ancient dynasty: The caverns of Mount Creeper!

    Photobucket

    Okay, I’m getting a little ahead of myself here. But if you’d been through what I was was to get here, you would be just as excited as me. And, well, even if there isn’t much a view yet, I am undeniably in the…wow.

    [][][]

    [][][]

    Words can not describe the majesty of this place. I’ll try my best to describe it here but for the mean time please look to the picture above and know that it is utterly impossible to capture this place in the frame of a single photo. To start with, there are lightstone [][][][][][][][][][][][] and mind you this is all in one single massive cavern! And then there’s the [][][][] spire, it [][][][][][][][][][][][]

    Photobucket

    This is the first room I encountered. I call it the [][][][][][][][][][][][]

    Photobucket

    Photobucket

    [][][][][][][][][][][][] and that concludes the garden. The further up I travel this road the more I am bewitched by this mountain. It’s almost like the peak is…calling for me; like it want me to…what was that?

    I’ve been alone too long. It’s messing with my head. As wonderful a place as this is, I won’t be sad when i return to civilization and better company then myself.

    Photobucket

    Speaking of things that you lose when alone in a cave, I had no idea it was night. Well, morning now. Even so, a cave in which you can see the sunrise is remarkable of itself I’d say.

    [][][][][][][][][][][][]

    Photobucket

    And this one is the Spire from outside, which I reached from the balcony. Don’t let the size fool you, this thing is [][][][][][][][][][][][]

    The Throne. It…The Throne.

    Photobucket

    I…must sit. Must take. The Thone…The POWER…of the KING.

    [][][][][][][][][][][][]

    MY HAND! That colour. Why…WHAT’S HAPPENING TO ME!?

    And so ends the penultimate episode of THE JOURNEY TO MOUNT CREEPER! Tune in next time for-bzzzt

    I live

    Errm, yes! Sorry for technical difficulties. Join us next time for the exciting conclusion! What’s happening at the mountain? What’s with the [][][][]!? And just how crazy is

    I need power

    Epilogue

    Photobucket

    When the King Returned, he retook his throne and from that seat terror spread across the land. The Mysterious Explorer was never heard from again but for his incomplete photo-journal, which turned up on the doorstep of his publishing company 2 months after he went missing. With the journal was a single note – a gilded gold card which read “The King has Returned”.

    In the time between the Explorer vanishing and the delivery of the journal the lands surrounding the Mountain became swarmed with Creepers. So much so that they where impassable, and those few who lived within their bounds were trapped within a nightmare. Even so the Creepers did not attack anyone who did not enter their territory, almost as though they bided their time.

    So terrible was the plight of the villagers and tribesmen who lived there that they did the unthinkable in a desperate bid to escape.

    Photobucket

    They build a portal into the nether.

    This hellish landscape was one even the King himself dare not follow, for though legend told he could travel the ways, he did so sparingly, and only as a means of travel. He would never chase something so lowly as the people of his lands into the nether’s depths.

    Photobucket

    Even so, it was with good reason that he seldom ventured here. The landscape was aflame in every sense, with flying fell beasts always on the lookout for wayward travelers unaccustomed to the environment. The people only stayed as long as they dared, and picked up the journey in the proper world, for they still had much ground to cover. The local cities would not have then, and they still felt the looming shadow of the King.

    Time passed, and although the journey grew tiring they pressed on; looking for a place they could be safe from the King, a place they could once more call home. It was then that they came across this abandoned tower, the midway point of a long failed transportation system. The land was cold but not so cold, and the tower’s bowels ran deep. Their flight had brought them so far, but it was here that it would end.

    Photobucket

    This place was dubbed the Land of Fleece and Fleeing in honour of the journey that brought them to this chilly climate, and the people would build here a new home.

    And So closes this tale of the King Creeper’s Mountain. It was a long one, but important also, and it ultimately opened the way for tales of a new place, as all good stories should. I take a pause for now, but please, join me next time when I relate a few adventures in The Land of Fleece and Fleeing
