Silents' Minecraft "after Action Report" This IS in the right category, right?

An After Action Report is basically a Let's Play, but typed or written. More info on the TVTropes article.

I decided to try one of these out to see how it goes. Basically, I'm going to be playing Minecraft. Every time time shifts from day to night, I'll pause the game and write down my important accomplishments, adding a little humor and seriousness depending on the situation.

The story will be told as if from first person. Steve? (The Minecraft dude. Yes, the ? is part of his name) has woken up suddenly in the middle of the minecraft world with nothing but a pen and a journal. Deaths will usually be hand-waved away in some manner.

The Mods I will be using are:

So, as you can see, nothing really game-breaking here. Most of them are just for convenience.

I'll start when Clouds or an Admin tells me that it's okay to do this and that it's in the right place.

Sure, it's just fine to do this. Sounds interesting, although I don't play Minecraft.

Ah, I've seen this type of LP before. Seems like an interesting concept. I'll have to follow along this.

I'm guessing no images or such, though?

Maybe a few images. It's mostly going to be words though. I went ahead and played the first day and night. I typed up the first few sections in WordPad. Here they are:

This actually made me laugh. :D

I'm a Minecraft addict, and this reminds me of when I first started my survival world (I prefer creative, though.)

I guess I'll post so you can post the next part. I'm impressed. Minecraft is hard to make interesting to watch/read.

I'll post so you could post again. I like minecraft. I watch videos of it. Sadly I only play the online version. I'm not allowed to use any money to buy the full version.

I might pick up the full version of minecraft sometime but there are games I want first. I want a 3DS version of minecraft. The online is powerful enough to power online multiplayer and the game would look absolutely fantastic in 3D.

And we really should start posting on these, especially if we are doing one ourselves. Do unto others is the best way to get others to do unto you and you can't post a new part until somebody posts.

I, unfortunately, am unable to play this world. I'm at my dad's house, and the save is at my mom's. I'll be able to play it again in a few days. So if someone could post after this so I can post the story later...

Bad news. I have a new computer now. I was able to get the seed of my previous world, but I'm gonna have to restart. I was unable to save the... um... save.
