8T Take A Chance, by Leekgame

Server: School Private Servers

this challenge will be set up every time someone goes through it.

You find a building. You enter the building. You find a sign. It reads.

TAKE A CHANCE.
FIND SIGNS THAT
MARK SPOTS

DIG THROUGH THE
SPOTS. YOU MIGHT
FIND A PRIZE

THEN AGAIN, YOU
MIGHT MEET A NOT
SO GOOD SURPRISE.

(You must set a bed as home in the start room because if you die, you will end up in the start room. Users serving as “referees” may be stationed in each room. If you cheat, they are allowed to kill you. The referees request that you place any belongings you have in a chest at the beginning of the game. You may choose to make the chest private).

You walk through a door, and find a room. In one room, you find a sign.
DIG UNDERNEATH
THIS SIGN OR CHOOSE
TO MOVE ON

If you choose to dig underneath, you will find a chest. Inside is diamond armor, some torches and a sword. You will need this sword for the next room.

You enter the next room. It is dark. And there are monster spawners.

Your job is to set up torches to cancel out the spawners, and then destroy the spawners.
If you choose to ignore the previous order, you either win or you die trying to kill the monsters.

Once you are done, you leave the room to find another room. there is a sign here, too.

DIG UNDERNEATH
THIS SIGN OR CHOOSE
TO MOVE ON

If you dig underneath the sign, you will find a bottomless pit of doom. SPLAT! Dead.
If you choose not to dig, there is a prize waiting in the next room.

If you continue to the next room, you will find a chest filled with stacks of golden apples You will need these apples for the next few levels, so take a few.

You find a ladder in the room. Take the ladder up to the second floor.
On the second floor, you find a sign saying.

DIG BEHIND THIS WALL
YOU WILL FIND SOMETHING
EITHER PLEASANT
OR UNPLEASANT

You open the wall and find a chest. Inside is a diamond pickaxe. You will need this pickaxe for the next level.

You enter to find a wall of obsidian. You will need to dig through this wall. One spot on the wall conceals a door. You can either take a lucky guess and attack a random spot, or you can destroy the entire wall. This could take some time.

Once you are done, you enter the next room. Inside are 2 doors.
A sign reads.

ONE OF THESE DOORS
LEADS TO THE NEXT LEVEL
THE OTHER LEADS TO
(UN)CERTAIN DEATH

The death door (either door number 1 or 2) leads to a splash potion. It will splash on you. If you took the golden apples, you can use these to survive.
The other door leads to another room.

In this room you find yourself standing on top of a maze of lava of sorts.
It’s a lake and the lava is filling it. The only way to cross is to walk across a narrow path.
If you fall in, you die.
If you don’t fall in, there’s a reward for you...a ladder that leaves to the third level.

This level is a little harder.
this room opens up over a small room. At the bottom of the room is a floor filled with monster spawners.
Your job is to use some blocks that are sitting in the air as stepping stones to get to the next room.
If you fall down, you will face the monsters. If you can defeat the monsters, you will find a door with a ladder that leads to the other side of the room, which allows you to bypass the perilous stepping stones.
ss
In the next room, there are once again two doors.
Enter one door and you get killed by a group of monsters.
Enter the other and you find another room with a ladder. Take the ladder upstairs.

This level is really easy, and is more like preparation for the top floor.

When you reach the top, you will find a chest filled with cobblestone. Take the cobblestone, because you will need this soon.

Once you have taken the cobblestone, you enter another room. Inside is a chest with a pickaxe. Take the pickaxe and go through the next door. Inside you find a staircase. Take the staircase up and find a room with 2 doors. One of the doors falls out, and you’ll more than likely die when you reach the bottom.
The other door leads to a ladder. Ride the ladder upstairs to the top floor.
On the top floor, it opens out to the sky. There is a small ledge. If you walk out onto the ledge, you will see a door on the side of the building.
A sign reads.
BUILD YOURSELF A
STAIRCASE AND TRY
TO REACH THAT DOOR.
OR DIE.

You must use the cobblestone from the other room to build your staircase. Be warned that if you fall, you will either die or end up at the start of the game once more.
Once you reach the door, you find a long hallway. You enter the hallway and walk through it. You might notice that the hallway seems to be going downwards. You keep on walking to find...

A sign that reads
YOU WON!

You can return to the start of the game to retrieve your things.


Approved! Looks very complex. Please remember that you need to take pictures EVERY WEEK and document what you accomplished. ~knowclue

Last week, Mr Malmstrom set up a server for me. The location i’m using is a desert. I cleared out a pot in the desert. The building will be rectangular in some ways, so I will make a building that is about 15 by 45. I should note that I need to make the walls 3 blocks thick so monsters don’t somehow leak through (this is why I hate monsters). So I’ll actually decide how big it’ll be while I’m working on it.

Today, I think I’ll fill the monster room with spawners.
To prevent skeleton from entering the break rooms, I will have 2 doors into each of the monster rooms.
Come to think of it, spawners are a little unpredictable. I’ll use eggs.

This is the room with the chest that has the armor, swords, and the torches.
Let’s go back to the first image.external image GK4B8YCcpD6jlzpwGYdz3v5KQjWk5F43sQoHLvhcXDstuyW94tfBqOrkLeMeafV5MfbFW6moy3HFa5gFuata-PKr5BWRd3GJtKU-fTjqKxobnjuW4uc
You can see that the building has a stone brick outside, a cobblestone inside, and obsidian in between. This is a precaution: I don’t want monsters ending up inside the building.Each room will have the obsidian in the middle of the walls for this precaution.
Underneath the cobblestone floor is an obsidian layering. This’ll prevent spiders from popping up from underneath the floor.

Today I intend on finishing up the first floor
Mr malmstrom said there is a mod I can use to choose what monsters come out of the spawners. So I will use that mod for the time being.

Last week I neglected to show what was under the floor, so here it is. An obsidian layer, plus cobblestone.external image 6DfrCuzAcbIICLL5pA5tndbsVZJ-dG7aCgxD6YfHYjH4WvNRVh2UjN-GRN-ACZBWvy8JZG4Yo9HbbcVx-nP8gCX_9J4RCQKtScjXnjnEu-cjmDe0nBI

while I was digging under the floor of the spawner room, I found what might be a mine. I’m leaving it alone for now. If I have time, I’ll fill it with either water or lava so it won’t be a problem.

Unfortunately, the pit can’t go very far before entering a mine, so I will instead fill a small pit with lava.external image R9eoYdNR7Q761xN-e5sxP88ksQPT_dgWbfNyj4nZ_QrG8tKKT6wE36Rbv3DzJ-W0FxCUI-GXK8KFaxa5yiC4l0EtPWU40VAOwJ6j1RPb4N3YZvu4DrMexternal image 1w_Yv3FjuOTxkI645El4vRJ9S9TWpdSRow5y7HB7AsxeOCBE8gIAGV0npVvg5S3BxDbEaitrEWTVgDBDR_T8A33MuRvrU77QvAA2-o9GhM0foluiMaMexternal image w24T2z_OJw9TSzPdE42xZDS3eUdt6JGf55JU75g0H-6F5ZA4X9pqLs3qICTuOOSETPssUwdAgDkoxQSfyTfeQLR5QT-WUJ99mLQ2YmPJjtp-XKxsVos

Unfortunately, I didn’t get much headway because SOMEONE kicked the cord out of the outlet (and was very rude about it, too). So this is all i got done.external image se3sz_j65dWWH4tA6rd0NMZztBZ0H07yDRO7OoBFknMbhbASC7fH-cOc2_y4-iSEewu7L6y0FwkPjaFGxEnspbtHQ0jCwJ8MQmnFjt-cFhFACc1aVro

So, unfortunately, I haven’t had time to write about my project because I’ve either been sick or we’ve had vacation. I haven’t even had time to work on it.

This looks incredibly cool, Kenjiro! I cannot wait to test it! ~kc

5/1/12. Lauren was first to test it. I still got some problems.

6/5/12 I finally got around to making a video of the challenge being played. Here it is:
