I wanted to have some interaction between butterflies and vanilla entities to make them feel like part of the Minecraft world. An easy way to have an entity interact is to make butterflies the target of a predator. Our furry friends seemed like the best candidate for this.
Now that RTO is in full flow I’ve been getting the bus to work a lot more. I get travel sick if I read, so I’ve been listening to podcasts on the hour-long trips to and from the office. Then I noticed something interesting about the app I was using.
After losing Neera exploring Adoy’s Enclave, Aegon returned to Beregost to recruit some old friends. Gavin, Emily and Braegar agree to travel with him again. They stand now, outside the Thunderhammer Smithy, ready to discuss their next steps.
