If you find these pages useful you can return the favour by downloading my FREE ebook from Amazon - even if you don't read it will help our rankings! I think you'll probably like it though.

It's the first book of a series of 9 books (so far) which tell the story of how life on Earth was saved from a cataclysmic extinction when a rogue planetoid collides with Earth in 7141. This first book deals with how humanity was made immortal, giving us the incentive to do something about an event so far in the future.

Take a touch of humour, add some genetic science and nanotechnology. Steep with conspiracy and stir in murder and despair. Season with romance between three people in a secret location. Garnish with morality.

The result is 'Immortality Gene', the first in a novel series by John and Shelia Chapman. Book 1 is FREE

A review from Amazon.com:
A Vested Interest is well written and a great read.
It is a story of corporate jealousy at the highest levels, greed, spite, vengence, advanced techonology, medicine, love and betrayal, and the very essence of life itself.
WOW - that is a lot to cover in one book! Read this book - you will be glad you did.

Donna Rigden is fed up with her boss at D'Netics Research Facility. She resigns - big mistake! Donna is now on the hit list of one of the most notorious men in the corporate US. He's without morals and doesn't accept the word 'no'.

Sir Richard, Donna's new employer showers her with luxury and makes her an offer she can't refuse. Now, once she's signed the contract, he asks her to use her medical expertise to commit murder. Donna probably would have walked away, but she'd been swept off her feet.

Richard sides against her; Donna feels hurt and betrayed. She turns to her new friend for help. Donna's life is turned upside down. Two letters and two secrets steer her future. Donna must make a life changing choice. Once made, there's no going back. Was it the right choice?

Death strikes! The infirmary's doctor is ordered to give his patient a mystery drug. He's told the drug is either a cure or a curse. Will he stand by his Hippocratic Oath or follow orders?

Donna wakes from a deep coma with part of her memory gone. She starts to remember, but parts of her past don’t add up. She remembers being married to Richard but can’t remember why. Was she in love with him? She has flashes of two different lives. In one she’s happy. In the other she’s trapped. Which one is real?

Get 'A Vested Interest - book 1'

You could be reading this on the Kindle Fire HDX

Kindle Fire HDX

My wife Shelia has one and loves it. Get the 32 GB version though - you won't regret spending the extra. If you are like me and love to tinker with technical stuff get the new Google Nexus 7 instead (32GB) - It's not as user friendly when reading books from Amazon but it's far more versatile when you want to use apps from the Google Play store.

How to start 5 - Weapons and Fighting

Even the stone sword isn't very good for killing and defending against monsters so it's important to know how to do this.

1. Fight from inside water. We've already covered this when we gathered rockstar rocks. None of the animals will enter water (unless you have tamed them). Be careful to stay out of range though and remember chizzards can fly and don't need to enter water to attack you. Fighting from a pool of mineral water is even better. You can find this in caves and in canyon areas.

2. Fight from the top of a three high column. Animals can only jump two blocks high but your sword can reach further. Again this doesn't help with chizzards and night leafies can climb.

3. Run towards, hit, run past, turn and repeat. A very effective method if you have lots of space. Works well on frozen oceans for arctic chizzards and arctic mirus.

4. Use a stun bomb. These will allow you to attack in safety for four seconds. You can also use this method to freeze animals while taming them (especially keepers.) Stun bombs can be made, are sometimes found in chests at night or can be dropped when a keeper is killed.

5. Put blocks of stone or earth between you and the monster, hide behind it and peep out sideways until your sword shows a red cross.

5. Keep running. This won't help you fight but will keep you alive if you get caught out at night.

6. Get some armor. You can use armor to survive longer making it less likely that you are killed. It comes in several grades just as in the case of weapons.

Leather armor 1leather armor 2leather armor 3Leather armor 4

Once you've made your first armor you'll see your character wearing it when you press 'E'. You'll also find the next armor set is available to craft.

To get the next level of sword and armor you'll need obsidian and miru eyes. Mirus are aggressive and difficult to kill. They can also be difficult for a new player to find. To kill one try hiding behind blocks like this:

Killing a miru from behind blocks

This doesn't help if you can't find mirus though. Here's a suggestion.

  1. Dig a stepped tunnel down to the bedrock or limestone layer.
  2. Put a torch at this point and then dig a horizontal tunnel one block wide and two blocks high. Make this tunnel very long and don't put any lights in it. You can dig this in the dark but I suggest you press 'C' to go into crouch mode or risk falling into any caves.
  3. When you've dug a LONG way, go back to the tunnel start where your light is and block the entrance with a single block of grass. It's possible you might meet a monster on the way back!
  4. Mirus and other monsters will spawn in this dark tunnel. You will probably be able to see them from the entrance. If they don't come to you then remove the block of grass and approach them until they move to attack you. Block their path with a block of grass and kill them over the top of it.

If you dig down even further to the siltstone/stalactite layer this method will also allow you to find and kill warmworms easily.

Dig a long dark tunnelTo wear the next set of armor, press 'E' to go to the inventory and drag it over the leather armor. Store the leather armor in a chest because armor gets used up and you may need it again. You can mix sets of armor.

When you make an obsidian sword keep the stone sword as a backup sword in your inventory. Swords get used up too.
