I have been a member of the Minecraft community for quite some time and I can’t remember a time when Astragali (AKA the Minecraft Scribe) wasn’t around and contributing in some way to the community. He has done everything from Minecraft fanfic to bumpers on The Shaft Podcast. But one of his greatest skills has to be writing. His posts on his blog called “The Minecraft Scribe: Minecraft news, creations and thoughts” are amazing and insightful. I always love reading them because they are so rich with words and Astragali has an amazing way with them. Not only in the writing sense but very much in his every day speech. I have the pleasure of talking with “Astra” as we call him, quite frequently and love every minute of his jokes and stories. I can’t imagine our community without him. Not to mention the AMAZING stuff he and Teddanator have built on the Minecrap server.
But there is one little problem. The computer he is using is so old it is not even funny. His tablet that was a bit better died. He did manage to get a new video card for the old PC but it is just not enough to run Minecraft (or any other game) hardly at all. So I reach out to you the community to help Astra out. I have a computer I can give him that would be better but it is expensive to ship to him. If you guys could help out to get enough to send him a “better” computer that would be fantastic. Who knows maybe this awesome community would give enough that we could buy him a nice new one. I have already contributed $20 to this effort as a start. I think if Astragali had access to a better computer there is no telling what he could do. I would love to see an LP by him on anything really. That is just out of the question at this juncture. Let’s change that!
One great thing about the Mincraft community is the never ending supply of creative people and ThiefKnight (Thefre) is no exception. He is anÂ unbelievableÂ sketch artist. He has been drawing a lot of LPrs in the community etc and he does this on a live stream and it is really awesome to watch. He also has a Minecraft web comic called “Minecraft Misfits“.
