Greetings again Minecrafters, are we ready for a tour of some of the sights around Spawnville? Grab your walking shoes, and a tasty snack and lets begin.
One of the first sights you may see on your travels around spawn is a large wooden structure on the hill. What could it be? Why it's a pair of pants!
Built as a testament to one man's hatred of pants. It's purpose? To be ceremonially set alight amid much rejoicing. Much to the creator's horror (and other people's amusement), the burning remains of the pants were later repaired by a well-meaning citizen, and now stands there proudly and defiantly resistant to being destroyed.
You will also notice a Space Invaders display in the sky over the ocean. We hope they come in peace (If not, we'll have to take them to see Thermal)
If you fancy a swim, you can go diving into the ruins of Rapture. A once magnificent underwater glass structure, housing a carefully manicured forest, with stunning giant tree sitting atop the ocean above. Built near the dawn of time, all that remains now are the crumbled ruins, forever burning tree branches, and the memories of those who visited it in the past.
Near the ruins of Rapture, you will see another impressive sight, the mysterious statue (flibbles.statue
). Who is it? What does it mean?
This statue started out as a mysterious mass of stone. Locals wondered what it might be. Then the shape of legs was evident... and perhaps an arm? For a long while, nothing more happened to the statue. Thought to be long forgotten, the locals themselves paid no more attention to the half completed monument. Until one day, it surprised many, by being completed - almost overnight!
Guarding Spawn Village, ready to smite the enemy with it's stick.... Or impressing the Ladies with his raw strength.... and stoic determination... or something like that.
To the right of the statue, coming around behind the small hill, you'll come to a magnificent treehouse and cascading waterfall.
Atop that hill, and aptly situated above the Art Gallery, are two pieces of sculpture, the subjects you should all be familiar with...
Art Gallery? Why yes, Spawn Village has its own Art Gallery. Underground, offering the best temperature controlled climate for the valuable works of art...
It truly is an interesting and provocative display. Just what is the gallery owner trying to convey here? Is it the concept that art and beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Are they made from the same cloth spun to provide the Emperor his new clothes? Is it a piece of modern performance art - where the stunned and confused patrons are themselves the art? Is it a statement about how meaningless art actually is? Or is this an insight into the feelings of emptiness and loneliness the creator feels? Perhaps we will never know.
Moving on from the Art Gallery, you'll notice a large floating castle (daedalus.castle)
This stunning and impressive structure floats effortlessly above the ground, while gentle flowing waterfalls cascade down. The castle can be viewed from inside as well.
Not too far from Spawn Village, you'll find another piece of cubic art/sculpture (samah.scribble
). I'm told that this is a "scribblenaut"...
Heading over to the other side of Spawn Village, you'll see Skull Mountain (skull.mountain
You really need to see this one both day and night, as it is impressive at both times. Inside, we ask that you don't sit on the throne, the Phantom gets a little tetchy if you do...
In this same area,
you can't miss
you'll see the.... construction.... that some locals have fiendishly dubbed Manuzza's Monstrosity (togopia.tower
Inside, you'll find an unnerving glass floor (installed after the locals bemoaned the vast shadow cast by the solid floor) that offers spectacular views of the surrounding area. As does the roof and balcony (occupational health and safety officers would like to inform you that guard railings have not been installed in this facility, and that any injury or death that results from this, is entirely fictional and non-permanent)
Blocking out a good portion of the sun during the day, it however really is a magnificent sight at night.
So there you go... a few of our Spawnville sights. There is still much to show you in our tour however, so please stay tuned. Next tour takes us to Guyron's Castle and the grand Morning Light Castle and surrounding Estate.
