Hello there! If we haven't met before, I'm Mage. I know this is a long post, but please read through all of it - it has some very important information about the story!

The basic premise of this storybook is that our characters are Minecraft players who end up in Minecraft on the day of the Village & Pillage update. As mentioned in the actual storybook, they've ended up as their Minecraft skins. You're free to pick whatever skins you want. Your characters also don't have to play Minecraft from a computer – other devices are perfectly fine, as long as they're able to play on that day.

As of right now, I'm thinking they'll end up in some kind of forest. I'm open to suggestions on which type, but it might also help to see where our characters are from before picking out a definite starting location. Each character discovers they have some kind of power at their disposal – it's up to our group to figure out why they can either use darkness or fire.

And, of course, no good Minecraft fanfiction would leave out Herobrine, so our guys will have to keep a guy out for him.

Besides that, the only other important things to cover right now are that Minecraft isn't blocky once they're in the game, and that mods are allowed – but only before they get trapped. Once they are, they're left with whatever was in their inventory. If that's something that was modded, they can keep it. If not, they won't be able to use their mods.

Let me know if you have any questions, and please leave a comment in this thread if you want to join. <3

Before we start posting in the main thread, we'll work on creating characters. Feel free to delete anything in the parentheses; those are just there to guide you.

If you're new to storybooking, I'll be glad to help you out! If you're not, feel free to go and make your character using the character profile posted in the spoiler down below. All you have to do is copy-and-paste the code into one of these, and fill in the rest.

Spoiler! :
Code: Select all
[b]Full Name:[/b] (Include any nicknames they have here!)

[b]Minecraft Username:[/b]

[b]Gender:[/b]

[b]Age:[/b]

[b]Fire or Darkness:[/b]

[b]Actual Appearance:[/b]

[b]Minecraft Skin:[/b]

[b]Personality:[/b]

[b]Brief History:[/b] (Please include where they live on Earth, and what their connection to Minecraft is!)

[b]Talents:[/b]

[b]Other:[/b]


Here's the WriterFeedPad for this storybook.

And here's the invite for the Discord server that I use for all my storybooks! You don't have to join, but I thought I'd include it for those who like using Discord.

I can't wait to do this storybook with all of you!

You should have all gotten the notifications, but the storybook has officially begun! When you get the chance, send in your character profiles and get your first posts up. The challenge should give you some idea of what the post might involve, as well as my first post. Make sure to check both of them out. <3

I can't wait to see what you guys come up with~

This is the smallest storybook I've ever been in and I'm okay with that.

The story is progressing and I'm very pleased with how it's going.

Also, I love how I never intended for this to be comedic, but now it is and I can't help but feel like this was how it was meant to be. :P

I'm just copying and pasting this so ignore how it's only three people in the storybook for now.

Hey, everyone! Just popping in really quick to remind you all to claim any points you might have gotten from July's Captain's Challenge! You can get up to four points by posting in storybooks, one point from creating a storybook challenge, and another point from creating a storybook. The challenge officially ends in six days, so try to claim your points before then.

It feels weird doing this for my own storybook, but oh well. :P

Here's the expired challenge!

Falling Down the Mineshaft
Arc I: I'm In A Cube Land

Challenged Adventurer(s)

@Magestorrow, @SkyeWalker, @AlexOfLight, and @RaidenCheese.

The Challenge

The goal of the first challenge is to introduce our characters and get them a little more acquainted with their new world - and appearances. Most of the introduction's style lies in your hands, but there's some features that would be awesome to see in your first post. Seeing their life before ending up in Minecraft, adjusting to their new skin, trying to figure out what's going on - these are just some of the things that you might want to include in your first post.

Completion Time

July 10th, 2019

Credits Awarded

You can get one point for posting, and another point if your post is over 500 words. You can get one point for doing each of these following things in your post, for a grand total of four points:

1. Have your character interact with someone else's character.
2. Include a section involving the character's regular life.
3. Describe your character's reaction to suddenly being their skin.
4. Describe your character's plan for what they're going to do now that they're in Minecraft.

You can get up to six points from this challenge!
