The Kingdom of Emmethyr – a Minecraft Build

I’ve started working on an epic Minecraft build, like the ones that are always  featured on the Mojang blog or in Minecraft you tube videos. Yes, it’s kind of ambitious, but I’m giving myself plenty of time to do it. Also, it’s too hot to go outside or do much else, actually. So yes, I have plenty of time to build.

So, what exactly am I going to build? Well, I decided on a medieval Kingdom. I picked the name ‘Emmethyr’ for the Kingdom because it’s a cool sounding name. I’m not sure what it means or where it comes from, but hopefully it doesn’t mean anything offensive in a foreign language.

The next step is kind of tricky. Picking a spot to build. I figured that a bay or a cove would be great, especially if Mojang plans to add large ships in the future (otherwise the Kingdom is protected by a vast armada of single-person paddle boats). The dock itself was fairly easy to build. (I’m using creative mode right now)

A day may come when I find time to make the dock somewhat larger, but today is not that day

I’m still working on step three – mapping. This is important because I need to find out where all the good resources are. Of course, all the good resources are on the other side of the continent. Aside from about thirty random villages spread out around the base.

Note the massive forest and beautiful mountains several kilometers from my base.

As for buildings, I have a couple of them done. I won’t do much more construction until I get a better idea of how large the Kingdom is and what kind of biomes are in it. Maybe the Capital will have treasures from all over the kingdom. I’ll keep you posted on the progress!
