Minecraft server updates

What have folks been up to on the minecraft servers? Let’s take a look!

Everstorm Obituaries

  • Em discovered the meaning of life whilst fighting a skeleton and being obliterated by an unseen creeper.
  • Lukely wished to die doing the bed trick, but instead perished to the minions of the evil dragon surrounded by a pool of holy water that had little effect.

Deep Slate Nine

It’s been one month since the expeditionary teams set out to begin work on their outposts. The chunks contained between the teams are still resetting at random, and the treasures held within only seem to increase in diversity.

Regardless, the outposts grow day by day, gathering materials to face the unknown, and look really cool while doing so. One can’t help but wonder what kind of magic these teams are up against…

If you’d like a refresher on the B’hala build contest, take a look back in Newsletter #8!

Videos to watch

Are you caught up on Joe’s content? Here’s some videos in case you’ve missed anything!


Since the last newsletter, two more episodes of HermitCraft have come out, thanks Joe!

Watch BdoubleO100 talk about RenDog, then see RenDog talk to everyone else. Cool!

Up next, take a look at this! HermitCraft has updated to 1.19. It’s wild! Tadpoles and mud bricks and froglights, oh my!

Crafts with Cleo streams

What’s more satisfying than flipping a table? Flipping a decorated table! If you wanna see Joe decorate the table used in this year’s table flipping contest, check out these VODs!

So long for now…

Thanks y’all for reading this newsletter, and thank you to Joe for helping me get it just right! As always we appreciate feedback in the Joe Hills Meta > #feedback-newsletter channel.
