Good luck and open your minds everybody! Spoiler: 1st Place Story The Sacred Life A minecraft story by Guardi4n Long ago , the world was a nice place. Animals and players lived together in peace , there where no monsters in that world or even gigantic dragons. One time in that perfect world , a player joined. His nickname was ' Wai ' and he held in his body the sacred sphere of life , that protected the world from evil. Wai didn't care for the world , all he wanted was his own protection and evil for the other players and animals. Only Wai had the sphere of life , deep in his body , the other players just lived there in the minecraft world but they didn't have any sphere of life , they didn't have any secret powers like Wai had. One time , while Wai slept , he heard a voice. ' Wai ... I am the god of evil in the world... I have been in a prison for 10000 years now ... Save me and together we will bring to the world what it deserves! ' Wai felt a dark energy in his body and his eyes started to glow dark. ' How should I save you great god of evil? ' he asked. ' Place the black stones in a portal shape and burn it ' Wai knew that the black stones were only breakable with the best of the Pickaxes and that they were formed when lava touched water. ' I will do it! ' The blacksmith of the village where Wai lived didn't have the precious black stones neither did it have the diamond ores to break it. Wai bought an iron pickaxe and went mining until he found the diamond ores. The mining trip took him 3 days. He found lots of iron and some gold , but he didn't find any diamond ores. ' Wai ... use the sacred magic that I gave to you ... Open your eyes... ' Wai's eyes started to glow black again and he saw the diamond ores and all the other stones and ores were invisible . Wai mined the diamond ores and mixed water with lava. He broke the black stones with his new diamond pickaxe , placed them in a portal shape and burned it with fire. The portal started to glow and a new dimension was born called ' The Nether ' . This was were the god of evil Akon was being imprisoned. Wai entered the portal , the nether was a gigantic world with big lava oceans. ' Finally ... you have come to me! You opened the portal and now I'm free!' Great Fire came out of Akon's mouth and black wings started to grow out of his back. Wai started to fly and his spiritual body entered Akons body. Now Wai and Akon were one. ' The minecraft overworld will have what it deserves ' he said... The beast passed through the portal and now he was in the overworld. ' Finally' The great beast started to destroy the world by burning it with fire. The villages were all destroyed and a new era started. The beast was the god of this world where he once ruled. But the divine time of the beast was not long. The gods that once imprisioned Akon were back... ' Akon , your time here will come to an end again! Like we did 10000 years ago , but now your prison will be a place where no human will ever go! ' they said. The great beast was strong but the divine gods had a great power too! They imprisioned the beast under the world and placed bedrock there so that no human could ever make it to Akon's new prison , but at one cost. Monsters started to spawn , some with special abilities. The new humans of that world needed to protect themselfs from those creatures. They needed to do everything alone without the help of any gods. A new era was born that day. Spoiler: 2nd Place Story As i stumbled into a world of enjoyment, there were cakes and candy all around me. I looked down, i was standing in a pole, i knew what a had to do and in deep thoughts i heard a faint bang go off behind me. This was it. As i pelted it to the middle as fast as i could, i saw many others around me losing their step and falling over, i knew i couldn't make an error, i had only 20 seconds to get out of there. I grabbed as much as i could and fled away hoping no one would follow, i wiped my forehead as a sign of relief. I put my gear on and went looking for others, i knew i had to protect myself and kill any others who would approach me, soon, after battling hard, i heard faded echos of what sounded like gun shots. It felt like hours, probably minutes, most likely seconds until i was finally reunited with the last of my enemys, i glanced around, still what seemed to be in a place of enjoyment, but i knew it wasn't. A loud bang went off and he came charging at me, in the heat of the moment, i jumped off my pole and ran, i ran towards the other person who was also running away, i managed to reach with him and in one swing of my sword, he was gone. I turned around, i was faced with the last one. I could do this, this would be it! I swong my sword and he swong his, i was hurt but i managed to get back up and fight back. I did it, I won the game!

(Comments: i didn't want to make it strictly "minecraft" related (E.G saying the word minecraft in it) as i figued thats what everyone would be doing, i referenced it and left it out to interpretation) ~Exciting_pancake Spoiler: 3rd Place Story It was my two friends, Ava Michael and I. We were playing skywars on CubeCraft games, the best skywars server. As soon as we joined the first map, End, all the fun started! I was a stone at the time, in fact, we all were. The game started. It was normal chests. We fell to our island, grabbed our chests, and started building to eachother right away. People slowly started to die. People were shot off, slashed with swords and blown up with TNT. The game was getting intense. Really intense. There were now six people left. My friends and I, and three others. Michael was then suddenly shot off while he was building to mid. It scared me to death, because I was right behind him! Luckily, I made a lucky shot and shot him off. It was ava and I against another team of two, and the worst part was, we had no idea where they were. We were frantically searching when we suddenly spotted them! Ava started mining around an island that Michael said he saw them on. One of them hit ava off the edge, so I flew down and killed them both, winning the game! "Wow that was so intense" I said aloud! Thanks for participating!
