Minecraft: Stormtopia Survival. Part 1

Hey guys, I had one guy say he wanted Minecraft stuff (at the time of this post) and he seemed pretty keen, that was enough to make me do it.
So better get started.
First things first, I do play with a texture pack on (Link to it HERE It's very good, I recommend it), and it will be on the screenshots of this post. If you'd like me to turn it off for future posts please just say, I'll be happy to :)
I play Minecraft with FOV at 100 just so you know, and the mode I'm playing on is Survival on Normal difficulty.

Anyway better get to it. I created a new world so I have something to write about on a regular occasion. I won't do these daily, well, I might do, depends if I feel like playing or not.
(Don't forget to click the images for a larger picture)


So it begins, in the world, Stormtopia. 

I started off by getting some wood (don't make a joke about this -.-) as any person who plays Minecraft will know is essential. I made a crafting bench, made some wood planks, then some sticks, then I made a Wooden Pick and proceeded to dig my way into the mountain I'm standing on in the above screenshot.
I dug it out quite a bit just so I had somewhere to go when it was dark so a creeper doesn't blow me to pieces out of nowhere.

 Here is the little "stronghold" I dug myself :D

After I built this, I made myself a couple of Stone Pickaxes and a Stone Sword (in case any spiders dared take me on >:] ) I built a chest to store the materials I wasn't using in, because I could have died pretty easy (not to spiders though, don't worry about that) because of not having any armor and I have habit of forgetting to get food on new worlds lol.
I dug through the mountain so my stronghold had 2 entrances at this point, I went outside the 2nd and right in front of me I could see coal, so I went down and got it as soon as possible so I could make some torches. (The screenshot above has torches already because it was taken after this) 

Nomnom lovely Coal for the taking.

After this I noticed it had started to get dark so I went into my Stronghold (I'm gonna keep calling it a stronghold, it's not even strong but the name has stuck now) and just started digging a giant tunnel, down this tunnel I could hear loads of Zombie sounds which leads me to believe there is going to be some interesting stuff down there when I actually properly check it out.

Deeeeeeeeeep tunnel. You'll see what's down here at some point don't worry.

So after digging the deep tunnel, I put torches everywhere so nasty things didn't spawn. After this I decided to go check if my doors were closed and to see if it was Daytime yet. As I went up the ladder I saw something bright green at my door, and of course, it just had to be a Creeper, obviously coming to wish me a Good Morning, and then completely obliterate me.

Look at his happy little face. 
He's staring at me because he knows I can't get out that bloody door now.
Bastard.

That is all for this part of Stormtopia Survival, part 2 will be out soon, I thought I'd make each part relatively short, I've decided to limit to myself to 5 images on every part, so it doesn't just become a long and boring post.
Thanks for reading, I will try get some more exciting stuff done next part like find out what's down the tunnel, or maybe try and take that creeper on. (Yes, if it kills me, I will screenshot the explosion and what it done to my poor stronghold =[ )
