hunting the mobs

No screenshots today, but I do have a story to tell…

I hurt my back yesterday, I have a 1st degree muscle tear in my lower back, and boy does it sure hurt. so much so it’s difficult to sit down for long periods and laying down is also difficult. I was able to get situated in my comfy recliner and was able to use my laptop to play some minecraft before the wonderful pain pills kicked in.

I had run out of arrows for my bow. I have made it a point to not use my admin powers or cheat as we call it. I’ve made it a rule that you only use them when needed. So in order to get more arrows I have to craft them you have to have flint, sticks, and feathers to craft arrows. I spent a good deal on the server hunting chickens and zombies for feathers and trying to mine out gravel to get flint. There are plenty of trees on the server so sticks are not hard to come by feather on the other hand are. During the day you farm the chickens, during the night you have to hunt down the zombies for feathers the only problem with this is you have to watch out for skeletons and creepers and spiders. Skeletons also drop arrows so I go after them too, but the creepers are not so forgiving they will flank you while you are busy with other mobs.

So far I have been able to make about 128 more arrows but I have learned I’m going to have to use them sparingly because it’s a lot harder to not “cheat” by just using the command to give myself items.

Also if anyone would like to play on my server let me know I’d be happy to give you the server address.
