Scarhoof’s Scribbles #007


Things are ready Master.

I see. Patience though. He is progressing deeper.

You think he will find it?

I’m sure he will. We can intervene otherwise.

Dear August,

Two things happened to me recently that I think you should know about.

Firstly, I finished creating my mineshaft and outfitting it with all the accoutrements that you need to go on mining adventures.

Secondly, I went exploring.

It’s hard to describe the mine well with words, but I can that I have plenty of room to move around, a decent set of storage ini the walls, and the ability to craft and smelt all the way down in to the earth there. I shouldn’t need much down that deep.

Also, it looks really good. I didn’t have a lot to work with, mostly stone, but I think I did a fairly good job with my decorative skills here. The walls have some depth to them and I was able to hide some polished granite in the walls behind some stairs to give some detail where I think otherwise it would have just been more grey stone behind it. Besides, what else are we going to use granite for?

But that’s now that you are here for is it? No, you want to hear about the adventure, don’t you?

well to start off I should say I went the total opposite direction then I went last time. Northbound this time, I sailed and sailed for a very long time. So long, in fact, that I was just starting to wonder if I would ever find land.

But I did, and oh the land I found! It was the strangest place I’ve ever set foot on! It was an island in the middle of the ocean, and dirt was this odd purplish color. And the smell! I simply cannot do the pungent odor justice through words alone, but know that if I could have chosen not to breath, I would have done so. I don’t know what is going on with that island, perhaps a quick in the biochemistry of the soil, but it’s all rotting.

So much so that the local bovine wildlife has taken on an…interesting hue. They’re rotting themselves, from the outside in it seems. They have mushrooms growing on their skin! And they don’t seem to care! W will have to see if we can cure them. Maybe restore the island to it’s former glory one of these days.

But I shouldn’t linger on the odd island right now, for I haven’t finished my tale.

After leaving that god-forsaken island, I continued north until the air become dried and drier, and the dirt turned to hard packed clay. Here I found some cactus, which I harvested for future use, and I quickly left that place because I was on a mission.

I found and explored some abandoned structure half-buried in the sand in a nearly buy desert, then I finally found what I was looking for, a savannah.

Here I found some odd-looking trees that grow practically sideways! they are truly a sight to behold, but their wood looks very orange an dI think will be an interesting addition to my ever-growing stock back at home.

So that’s it! That’ what I’ve been doing. It was nice getting out for a bit. I think I need to d that more often. It’s too easy to become complacent here on my island. I need things to distract me and keep life interesting.

Till next time,
