Interesting Finds In Minecraft

so my method to get out of a cave is to dig straight upward and fill in the blocks beneath me with dirt or cobble stone. this also allows me to mark the place to come back to it. well i was digging a tunnel up and found this:

jail - interesting finds in minecraft

Then after a bit more exploration:

jail2 - interesting finds in minecraft

Little bit more:

jail3 - interesting finds in minecraft

Another discovery?

jail2mineshaft - interesting finds in minecraft

And were not done yet! the finale:

library - interesting finds in minecraft

library2 - interesting finds in minecraft

ive seen moss stone before, but never moss brick. And ive heard of mine shafts and strongholds, never a jail, and especially never a library. The place is also like a maze. it was an interesting find.

anyone have inputs to shed light on the situation?

    Yes, thats a stronghold. I would make sure you NEVER lose it, because I think in release version, there is a maximum of 3 strongholds per map. In Beta, it used to be 1 stronghold per map :l

    Anyway - somewhere in it, you will find an "end portal" frame, accompanied by a Silverfish spawner. Watch out, silverfish are the worst mobs ever. Destroy that spawner ASAP.

    You then have to get lots of "Eye of Ender" - these are crafted by combining "Ender Pearls" dropped by Endermen with "Blaze Powder" dropped by Blazes (new nether mob). You then need to right click each block in the frame to put an eye of ender in. Once its filled, an end portal will form.

    You can work out the rest of it from there.

    yeah i know how to do all of that lol. thanks for the advice though. also, why does everyone keep saying silverfish are so bad? they arent that difficult to kill... and i searched the entire place, didnt find the portal frames =/

    Pretty sure that's the underground castle where the end boss's portal is located.

    aka stronghold with end portal frames? so thats a stronghold?

    would you mind uprating this? i really am quite curious about this and want to see what people have to say lol

    The end portal SHOULD but might not be in the stronghold, make sure you investigate every corner! But dont mine, or the silverfish will get you

    what do you mean? they are really easy to kill. already had hundreds come after me lol. 2 hits with my pickaxe killed um
    - bufus101 December 13, 2011, 11:57 pm
    and i check every corner, nothing =( only thing i might have missed is something in the mineshaft it connects to. but yeah, searched all 3 levels of the stronghold

    Darkhunter is correct. That is indeed one of the strongholds found underground. You are also very lucky to of found one with a library which barely ever spawn without the aid of mods.

    i mean i already had enough books for enchanting from sugar canes, but it was cool to find

    D; i have never come across a stronghold yet. ive seen an abandoned mine, the nether, a chasm (or whatever it is), 2 spawner dungeons very close together, and a floating island.
