|I can hear them up there, waiting for me|
I was quickly greeted by some Iron deposits, which allowed me to craft a few new items. After I carved out a new home space, I continued downward. Now whether it was coincidence or not, I could've sworn I heard an odd few musical notes play when I stumbled upon another opening. This one led to another roomy expanse, but I quickly followed my gut and mined downward, feeling as though I was close to something. What I was close to ended up to be something rather hot.
|Sadly, I forgot to bring marshmallows|
Excitement and a bit of trepidation hit me, as I knew I was peeling back another layer to the game. After finding my stone pickaxe to be rather ineffective at mining the reddish deposits nearby, I switched to my Iron one and began some collecting. With that done, I cautiously began poking around a bit more, ever careful not to stupidly bust open some lava lake that'll come spilling out onto me.
It was also around then that I had a run in with a literal room full of monsters. This was more by accident than anything else, as I traced the groans and spidery noises to a one block opening in one of the cave walls. Being the clever (cowardly) person that I am, I killed the zombie and spider from my relative safety. Before I could whoop in triumph however, another Zombie came to the opening, which was then followed by another.
This game is going to be the death of me.
