A tale of two heroes

I've always wondered, deep in my mind, what would happen if two worlds collided with each other, neither one necessarily evil, but, viewed as evil because of the other side's outward appearance. What would become of their heroes? I'm sure that comics have done a tremendous job of this, bringing about different worlds into one, but I don't think they've ever come to my conclusions.

So, with that, one of my many new projects to come is to write this story. The idea comes from the Ouroboros, and for those of you who do not know what that is, it is the World Serpent, the snake that eats its tail continuously, the symbol of Eternity.

The story is of two worlds, caught in a battle of both trying to be superior. These two worlds are mirror images of each other, both bringing balance to each other.

Now, there's an imbalance created, and the heroes of both worlds have to come together to save it, but growing suspicions keep them from doing more than skirmishing amongst themselves.

What's better, two reluctant heroes who have been separated for 10 years, each thinking the other dead, have been reunited and have to challenge the source of all evil...

I'm thinking the story through some more, but, it should be something like that...

Hope I finish it LOL

Minecraft - What ever shall we do?

What? Oh! Sorry! I haven't been by to update in a while. I've been absorbed in this mining venture. See, I've been scouring the lands looking for iron ore to reprocess into tools so I can go back to mining coal so I can go back to mining iron ore to reprocess into tools, so that one day, I will have enough tools to go after the diamonds and red dust deep in the earth.

Minecraft is awesome! Hell, I even found this on the forums, as someone's signature:
"Notch, who art in Sweden,hallowed be thy name;thy website come;thy updates done,in Alpha as is in Beta.Give us our daily bacon.And forgive our griefs,as we forgive them that grief against us. And lead us not into lava;but deliver us from creepers. Amen"
This Swedish game is taking over the internet, person by person. It is still in its alpha stages, and the creator already has made tons of money from it. One year, and he's already looking for an office to set up his permanent home! This guy is a genius!
Minecraft is a sandbox game. Basically, you go around, digging up dirt to find stone, mining through the stone to find coal, iron, gold, diamond, red stone dust, and the extremely difficult to mine Onyx. Avoiding lava, monsters, and drowning is the big challenge... but sometimes so is falling into an unknown cavern that you didn't dig. Which makes you wonder... are there other people playing on your map? And it is entirely possible, since Minecraft is not just a single player game, but a massive online multiplayer game.
Check it out! Play in the Classic edition to get an idea of what the game is about, and then join the rest of the multitude who has purchased the game (9.99 EU until Beta starts) and run rampant through the mines!
