What is Minecraft

Minecraft, a world in which you, the player, can create just about anything that you can imagine. Shaping the world as you desire, one block at a time.

You begin your journey with nothing but your hands in this pristine new world, a dense forests shrouds your horizon but even then you can spot mountains in the distance, and lakes of various sizes behind all the foliage. As you begin your search for a habitable zone to set up camp you spot creatures of various sizes, as you continue to explore you realize that there is snow in some regions with massive trees protruding out of the ground. You also spot deserts with dried up shrubs poking out of the sand and cacti littered everywhere, you spot the occasional cave poking out of the side of a hill, your curiousness consumes you to explore it, but you dare not tread it yet.

Spending a good portion of the day, you at last find a decent spot to set up camp. You immediately begin to cut down trees for some it's wood. After cutting down a sufficient amount of wood, you make your way back and begin to craft tools, eventually you will set up a basic house. Night begins to set in...

As you are smashing away at a tree you begin to realize the world is getting dark, you ignore it not aware of the dangerous creatures that crawl the planet at night. It begins with a single moan, you jump and look around, unable to see far. As you turn around to cut the tree you hear it again, this time closer, you decide it'd be best to go back inside, as you turn around to make your way back you see an arrow whirl past your face. In sheer panic you dash back into the safety of your hut, more arrows are flung barely avoiding you as you slam the door behind you and jump behind your workbench as you lay there you hear a loud thud and on your door and another. You peer out behind the workbench slowly, afraid, and see a hideous monstrosity leaning on your door, waiting. You manage to fall asleep.

You awake to the smell of fire, you jolt upright in panic, "Has my house caught fire!" you think to yourself. You look around hurriedly for the source of the flames but realize quickly it is coming from outside. You peer outside your door slowly through the windows and realize that the evil creatures of the night had caught ablaze and within seconds they dropped to the floor, nothing but ash and bone remaine. You now know to hide at night, and work by day.

You begin to grow your arsenal of tools, you want to use something besides wood as a building material...

You begin to dig down for stone. Very quickly you will realize that beneath you lies vast quantities of precious metals besides stone. A mixture of greed and need will bestow upon you, you will search endlessly for those minerals. Your journey into the core of the planet will bring you pain, tragedy, but it will also give you wealth, power, happiness. You will find vast dungeons under the surface, you will get lost occasionally. The rewards are many, the risks many. You will uncover an endless horde of enemies, at that point you will have weapons and armor at hand, you will fight them.
