a small, minetest game house

I'm continuing my exploration of small house designs, because I'd rather be interested than impressed. This small farm manages to squeeze in two floors. From the left, it also reminds me of a skull with hair, which I find amusing.

Are you a fellow minetest player? I'd like to know a bit about your thoughts and experiences playing the game. If you are open to sharing, then please let me know in the Minetest Questionnaire. Thanks!

Cobblestone castles

Fri 29 December 2017By Wos


I've been traveling a bit, seeing the homes people build. You know what's common? Cobblestone castles. Great cubes of grey, often surrounded by treacherous pits and partially felled trees. Occasional chunks of gold and diamond meant to suggest that the owner is somehow "rich."

People who want to be impressive …

The wizard was defeated. The amulet was returned to it's place amongst the Gods. The Hero made a triumphant return. Many thought this would herald a new era of peace and prosperity, that the Hero would finally set things right.

Why is unclear. Some say the amulet's power …
