You've been trapped in solitary confinement for over two years. All of a sudden, you are given a pickaxe; you use it to escape the cell, but as you continue your escape, you slowly begin to realize that you may not be truly escaping.
You end up discovering an underground house. It seems like a better place to live than that 4x4 meter cell, but at the same time, it's not freedom. The house has never seen sunlight, and it seems like you're not going to, either.
You discover that the house harbors secrets, left behind by its old owner. The house is connected to a maze-like cavern and it rests on top of a hardcore parkour course. It is build on the inside of a square brick path, itself possibly containing even more secrets.
The old owner of the house has kept a journal. According to him, he found four objects that could have possibly helped him escape the entire prison if combined in a certain way, but he never found the right way to use it.
Where are the hidden objects?
Will you be able to escape?
What is the connection between the emeralds you're going to see?
1: Do not break any blocks UNLESS they are cracked stone bricks or unless they are directly referenced to.
2: You may place ONLY blocks you have found in chests. The cracked stone bricks you manage to harvest? Can't use those.
The map currently does not have a walkthrough, so I'll give you some hints. If you want to play this map without hints, stop reading now.
There is a very large maze in one part of the map, so be prepared for a complicated run-through. There are two secret rooms in this place, one on each floor; don't be intimidated by the maze. I've given you a ton of torches to help you mark where you've been. And don't forget to check every dead end for cracks in the walls...
There is a parkour course above a pit of lava, so be prepared to jump right. There's an Ender Chest in the room in case you're worrying about dying. Another hint: the secret objects you end up finding can be combined and used in a special part of this room.
Two secret objects are located within the maze. Another is located in a deep hole. The fourth is located near the pool; a fifth is located near a trapdoor that opens downward. That trapdoor will point to the secret object.
