Week 1:- We found a suitable location for the establishment of the outpost. Large area... near water... close to extreme hills. If we're going to dig this much we may as well get emeralds in the process. The area is a good run from any portal. Having dealt with suicide bombers on previous invasions we know well enough to stay out of their way. They have a short attention span... and are unable to run great distances before becoming distracted.- Assisted the minions in travelling to the outpost. This was a chore. Sweetsilverowl minion was constantly distracted by flowers, sheep (which she named), and kept falling into ravines. I sometimes wonder about her capacity as a minion to an evil overlord... but then I hear her snicker when I slaughter sheep before she arrives. She will suffice. We fed several zombies as she was too distracted to make the trip in a single day. I collected the zombie heads. They will become the first decorations in the new outpost.- The minions informed me of the decision on the outpost style. Necropolis... city of the dead. After some research and discussions we settled on a grand strategy. This will take much work. The invasion of this world will truly be epic.- The work here will require many slaves and many resources. We established a small farm, a farmhouse, stable, tree farm, and pens. A slave settlement will be necessary in the future.
