I pushed aside the sheep with some difficulty, and joined Boxter and the sheep in the main pit. I spent the rest of the night staring vigilantly up at the stars, sword drawn, trying to maintain my footing as Boxter and the sheep jostled me from side to side.
"Get - mmmfff - move it - stop it - rrrrrgh!" Morning was a long time coming.
When at last rosy-fingered dawn appeared, I climbed out of the pit to battle with a lingering spider, which had so luckily been too dumb to actually fall into the hole we were sheltering in.
Before the day was out, we had crossed to the far side of Horse Heaven and were now in a sparse woodland. Even worse, we appeared to have run out of continent. We wandered along the northern shore before finally spotting a mountain off in the distance, with a chain of islands between us that might possibly be hoppable.
|Hey! Stop laughing! I am a mighty warrior!|
|Tee hee! Cute little bunny feet when I look up!|
It appears that having a bunny on your head somehow grants your horse the power to jump extra-high. Maybe if we had been in the mountains the bunny's added jumping power would have been useful, but as it was, all we did was jump high before coming down hard, taking falling damage. A few jumps later, I'd had enough of falling damage, and lifted the bunny back off again.
Now it was time to build a shelter - night was coming soon. I selected a spot and began digging, while Boxter watched.
|How did he DO that?|
