Season 1 (2015-16)
The Order of the Stone (Episode 1)]
Jesse (Patton Oswalt) and his friends, Olivia (Martha Plimpton) and Axel (Brian Posehn), along with his pet pig Reuben (Dee Bradley Baker), go to the Endercon building competition, which they lose every year to a rival team called the Ocelots. Despite this, they manage to build an impressive contraption, which Ocelot member Aiden (Matthew Mercer) jealously sabotages, scaring off Reuben. Jesse goes after Reuben while Axel and Olivia save the build. Jesse and Reuben are saved from mobs by their friend Petra (Ashley Johnson), who convinces Jesse to help her with a business deal: selling a Wither skull for a diamond.
Back at the competition, that Jesse’s team wins, the deal goes bad when Ivor (Paul Reubens), the man Petra sells the skull to, rips her off and flees. Jesse and Petra, joined by Axel, Olivia and the sympathetic Ocelot leader, Lukas (Scott Porter), follow Ivor into an underground laboratory. There, they discover him making a Wither, an incredibly dangerous creature, but are unable to stop him. The creature attacks the event and targets Gabriel (Dave Fennoy), a member of the legendary Order of the Stone, whom Ivor seems to know. Ivor loses control of the Wither, which, with the power of the special ‘command block’ implanted in the Wither’s chest, transforms into an advanced, more horrific version of itself, called ‘The Wither Storm’. It then destroys the town, forcing the group to escape into Gabriel’s fortress, where Gabriel sends Jesse’s group to find Order members Magnus (Corey Feldman) and Ellegaard (Grey Griffin), and gives them an amulet to guide them. They head into the dangerous Nether, leaving Petra and Gabriel behind in the process (one of them being into the Wither Storm, depending on your choices).
In the Nether, Jesse’s group finds a train track left by the Order, and goes to the Overworld, where the group decides to bunk for the night. Axel is bitter towards Lukas, and Jesse must choose who they will side with. The next morning, the group arrives at the Order Fortress, where they discover that Ivor had actually been a member of the Order, but had been inexplicably kicked out. They later find a contraption that, when hooked up to the amulet, shows on a map the current locations of the members of the Order. Lukas decides to stay and fortify the fortress, and asks that one of the four stay with him. The player then has a choice: to go with Axel to get Magnus, or with Olivia to get Ellegaard. As Jesse and Axel/Olivia prepare to leave, the Wither Storm approaches.
Assembly Required (Episode 2)
Jesse and Axel/Olivia head to Boom Town/Redstonia to recruit Magnus/Ellegaard to help them. After successfully getting Magnus/Ellegaard to join them (with different mishaps), they return to the temple to discover that Olivia/Axel (whoever didn’t accompany Jesse) has subsequently retrieved Ellegaard/Magnus (whichever one Jesse did not personally find), and are now reunited with either Petra or Gabriel (depending on who Jesse saved before entering the Nether). Returning to the machine, they discover that it now shows the location of the last, long thought lost member, Soren, as well as Ivor, who is heading towards him. Ellegaard reveals that she and Soren had been building a “Formidi Bomb” (an incredibly powerful explosive), and proposes this as a solution to the problem of the Wither Storm. The group leaves to find Soren and his secret lab. There, Jesse, Lukas and Reuben find a massive herd of endermen. Magnus and Ellegaard (who clearly don’t get along well) depart in two different directions to find the “F-Bomb”. Jesse and Petra/Gabriel follow one, while Lukas, Olivia and Axel follow the others. As they walk, Petra/Gabriel reveals to Jesse that, despite his saving him/her, they have “Wither Sickness”, which gets worse by the minute. Eventually, they confront Ivor, but he taunts them, saying that the Order will be unable to do anything to stop him, then escapes.
The Last Place You Look (Episode 3)
The group is trapped (Ivor’s doing in the prior episode). They manage to escape, but end up in the foreboding End. There, they spot Soren and follow him into his massive house, where Jesse finds him researching the dangerous Endermen. Jesse convinces Soren to help destroy the Wither Storm using the incredibly powerful Formidi Bomb, just as the Wither Storm attacks. They return to the surface, where they reunite with Magnus and Ellegaard. Soren asks for a volunteer to set off the Formidi-Bomb, reminding them that the bomb will go off seconds after being made. This task falls on Jesse’s shoulders. Accepting either Magnus or Ellegaard’s armor, Jesse constructs and uses the Formidi-Bomb, and survives, but Magnus/Ellegaard (whoever gave Jesse the armor) is killed by an attack from the Wither Storm. The Formidi-Bomb destroys the Wither Storm, freeing the citizens it ate, including a now amnesiac Gabriel or Petra. Unfortunately, due to the bomb not reaching the Command Block keeping it alive, the Wither Storm reforms, having split apart to make three Wither Storms, forcing everyone to flee.
A Block and a Hard Place (Episode 4)
The group is forced to flee the new Storms. They then encounter Ivor, who wants to fix his mistake and offers a solution: using a book of enchantments he has at his house in the Far Lands that can enchant a weapon so powerful it can destroy the command block. The group (possibly without Axel, Lukas and the sick member) goes to Ivor’s house, where they learn that the story of the Ender Dragon battle that made the Order famous wasn’t entirely true: Soren just used the Command Block to glitch the Ender Dragon out of existence. Ivor left the Order in disgust and summoned the Wither Storm to show the world who the Order really are: liars and frauds.
Despite this shocking truth, Jesse constructs the weapon which, with the unwitting help of the Endermen, they use to enter the Wither Storm and destroy the Command Block, though Reuben is fatally wounded in the process and dies shortly after. As the world praises the new heroes, Jesse convinces Gabriel, who is now cured (same with Petra), to either tell the truth about the Order’s past or continue keeping it a secret. Either way, Jesse and their friends are then made the famous New Order of the Stone.
Order Up! (Episode 5)
Sometime later, the New Order goes, on a tip from Ivor, to a temple where they discover a mysterious enchanted flint and steel. Outside the temple, they’re accosted by Aiden, who usurped Lukas as the new leader of the Ocelots (now going by the “Blaze Rods”) and is bitter towards the fame the New Order has attained, though they manage to chase him and his lackeys away. Back in town, the group shows their found loot to Ivor, who reveals the enchanted flint and steel to be the key to the Eversource, a source of unlimited building power. Returning to the temple, Jesse, Petra, Lukas and Ivor find a portal, which Jesse activates with the flint and steel. Unfortunately, the Blaze Rods surprise them and enter the portal first.
Pursuing them, the group ends up in a sky dimension, where they have to build a bridge with dirt. They come to Sky City, a metropolis island in the clouds, where building is strictly regulated by the town’s stern Founder. Unluckily for the group, Aiden gets to the Founder first and tricks her into turning the whole town against the Order. Though Ivor and Lukas are captured, Petra is saved by Milo, a barman and the leader of an underground resistance called Build Club (Jesse’s decisions choose who he goes with). They are quickly reunited, and soon find the Eversource, revealed to be a chicken which lays spawn eggs.
The group is then attacked by the Founder and Aiden, only for him to betray her and knock her, Jesse and possibly Lukas over the side. They land safely on land below, which is surprising to the Founder, as she thought there was nothing but an abyss. She and Jesse (Lukas will sit this out, feeling weak from fighting Aiden in the palace) build a tower back to Sky City, which is now overrun with monsters Aiden summoned from spawn eggs laid by the Eversource chicken. Though Jesse defeats Aiden and his crownies, the city is lost and the remaining townsfolk get into a waterfall and flow safely down to the land below. After deciding what to do with Aiden and the Eversource and how the new government should be run, Jesse and the group use a portal they and the Founder discovered while building the tower to return home, only to find themselves in a corridor filled with portals.
A Portal to Mystery (Episode 6)]
After entering one of the portals, Jesse, Lukas, Petra and Ivor end up in a world very similar to their own, except there are two moons, and everything appears swampy. After reading an invitation and escaping a massive horde of zombies, they end up in the mansion of other invitees, who end up to be five well-known Minecraft YouTubers: CaptainSparklez, StampyCat, DanTDM, LDShadowLady and StacyPlays, as well as two other fictional ones: TorqueDawg and Cassie Rose. They are revealed to be just as oblivious to this place as the New Order, since portraits of the Youtubers and the Order somehow appeared in the house. While meeting Sparklez and TorqueDawg, all lights go out and TorqueDawg is mysteriously killed by a trap with poisoned arrows .
Through a series of investigation, causing the death trap of CaptainSparklez, right after his announcement of the fact that the murderer (who referred to him/herself as the ‘White Pumpkin’) was killing them off for the enchanted flint and steel (such as the one as Jesse has), as well as the death of Lizzie/Dan, the majority of the Youtubers point the evidence at Lukas, but Petra and Jesse fiercely disagree. The two, along with Stampy, (who then reveals that he had an enchanted flint and steel), prove that Cassie Rose was the White Pumpkin, who then accidentally sets off one of her own traps and dies. Jesse, Petra, Ivor, and Lukas peacefully depart with the remaining Youtubers. The New Order walks over to an unlit portal frame, and attempt to use the flint and steel on it, and open another portal back to their home.
Though the flint and steel had the power to send them back to their world, it is revealed that the portal was a trap from Rose, who was not dead. While she threatens them with Endermites, Jesse is able to defeat her with his/her sword and his/her own collection of Ender pearls and leaves her to be eaten by the Endermites, while Jesse and his/her friends return through the real portal, although it is unknown whether they return home or not.
Access Denied (Episode 7)
Back in the portal hallway, Petra, who is bitter towards Jesse for leading to nowhere in multiple worlds and portals, flees into a redstone portal, concluding that redstone meant “smart people”. Jesse, Lukas and Ivor, having no choice, follow her into the portal.
Upon arrival, they are taken hostage by a population of players controlled with redstone chips by the psychopathy artificial intelligence computer screen PAMA (Prototype: Autonomous Management Agent), who was created by redstone user Harper but, against Harper’s will, controlled the population in order to “make them useful”. Wanting to invade Jesse’s territory and world, PAMA questions him and takes over Petra and Lukas, allowing it to see what they know. Jesse and Ivor escape PAMA with the help of Harper, who shows them her laboratory, where she reveals that she is an “old builder”. They are soon attacked by PAMA controlled monsters, alongside the mind controlled Lukas and Petra. Through a of luck, Jesse manages to destroy the redstone chips controlling some spiders, and either Lukas or Petra.
Harper is captured by whoever Jesse didn’t free by orders of PAMA, and Harper tells Jesse to find the ‘headset’. Eventually, after solving Harper’s puzzle, Jesse finds the headset, and wears it. It allows Jesse to take control over and migrate into PAMA-controlled mobs. Eventually finding Harper being captured by PAMA, Jesse is able to free her, only for her to be recaptured, but finds out from her that PAMA’s internal redstone heart is supposed to be destroyed. Using one of Ivor’s potions, Jesse is able to break into PAMA but is engaged in a fight with either Lukas or Petra before destroying PAMA’s heart. After the townspeople are freed from PAMA’s possession, they discover that Harper had created PAMA, and immediately hate her for it. Harper accompanies the group to the portal hallway, where she unlocks a stairway with the redstone heart leading to where the ‘Old Builders’ live, who might be able to help them find their way home, via a “Portal Atlas”.
A Journey’s End? (Episode 8)[
Arriving at the Old Builder’s village, the five accidentally interrupt a game of spleef hosted by the Old Builders; Hadrian, Mevia and Otto. Lukas and either Ivor or Petra (whoever Jesse doesn’t choose to help) are seemingly killed, but respawn to be sent to the Nether mines, where other losers of the Old Builder’s games are sent. Jesse strikes a deal with Hadrian: if Jesse wins the games, they get the Portal Atlas and go home. In the village, Harper explains to Jesse that Hadrian and Mevia began to force players from other worlds to play the games – they would only be free if they won the games, which was virtually rigged.
After freeing Lukas and his other companion from the mines, Jesse successfully completes the second game, despite Hadrian sending the green team to eliminate Jesse. Ivor/Petra (whoever Jesse saved) are killed, but quickly respawn. Harper convinces sympathetic Old Builder Otto to help Jesse. Hadrian reveals to Jesse that he kept Olivia and Axel captive using the Atlas, and makes another deal: If Jesse loses the games, Olivia, Axel, Petra, Lukas, Ivor and Reuben (Hadrian confused the latter with the EnderCon Usher) can go free while Jesse stays imprisoned. Otherwise, everyone stays imprisoned.
The next day, on the third task, Jesse eventually convinces the other teams to cooperate and rebel against Hadrian and Mevia by all winning. Otto accepts this victory, but Hadrian and Mevia trap him and most players, and Jesse, and the player respawns in the respawn area, where Emily, leader of the green team, Olivia, Axel, Petra, Lukas, Harper, and Ivor have stolen items for Jesse to defeat the Old Builders. The plan is successful, and they eventually receive the Atlas from Otto. Back in the Portal Hallway, Otto plans to work on making the games fun again. Harper and Emily either return home, stay in the games, or leave with the Order (Jesse’s suggestion), and the Order of the Stone return home. There, after Jesse shows Axel and Olivia their cool new artifacts (the Flint and Steel, the Eversource Crown, the White Pumpkin Head, the Redstone Heart, and the Atlas). Ivor takes the enchanted flint and steel and the Atlas, in which Jesse either decides to go after him or trust him with their new treasure
Season 2 (2017)]
Hero in Residence (Episode 1)
Lukas narrates a novel about Jesse and their friends’ adventures and their popularity. As he finishes, Jesse, Axel, and Olivia provide feedback for the novel. Along with Radar, Jesse’s new assistant, the five leave the Order’s palace to prepare for Founding Day celebrations throughout the world. Radar stays with Jesse to help with various tasks in Beacontown. Afterwards, Jesse heads to the mines to meet Petra, who has been sent to find a mysterious creature by Stella, the leader of a rivaling city, “Champion City”, who has Petra’s golden sword.
In the mines, Jesse and Petra fight off zombies, then race through the mine shaft to find the creature, which turns out to be a llama named Lluna. They capture the llama, and also find a strange gauntlet on top of a pyramid that whispers Jesse’s name. As Jesse reaches for it, the gauntlet clamps to his hand and the pyramid collapses, revealing a bottomless pit. They close off the pit and escape. Back on the surface, Jesse leaves a warning sign, and they head to Champion City to take the llama to Stella. The two meet Stella and give the llama back to her as she informs Petra that the “adventure” was a scam and doesn’t return the sword. The two decide to steal the sword back. Once they reach Stella’s treasure room, they find that the sword is missing. Stella shows up, and accepts defeat after inadvertently revealing she’s a fan of Jesse, and gives the sword back.
As they head back to Beacontown, the bottomless pit blows open and spews out charged creepers. They fight them off before sealing it again. They head straight to Beacontown to meet Jack, a former treasure hunter. Jack talks to Jesse about the gauntlet, and introduces them to Nurm, Jack’s map-maker. The four get some armor from the Order’s palace, and head to an ocean temple. As they travel, Jack informs them how the ocean monument is run by “the Admin”, a being of infinite power. They suit up in water helmets, and swim to the ocean monument. Jesse completes a door frame, and frees Vos, Jack’s old friend. Jack is surprised that Vos is alive, and the five reach the main part of the temple. They find the two structure blocks, and pick one. After fighting off stone guards, including the Admin, the five then escape back to Beacontown. The group close the pit with the structure block, and celebrate Founding Day. As the celebration starts, the Admin goes after Jesse, vowing to demolish them. While Lukas is at his house finishing his novel, he sees the Admin approaching Beacontown, he suits up and rides off to help Jesse.
Giant Consequences (Episode 2)
The Admin meets Jesse at Beacontown, and the two fight, damaging Beacontown in the process, He uses a giant clock to turn day into night so that monsters would invade the city. The Admin also swallows the structure block. Just as The Admin is about to swallow Jesse whole, Lukas distracts him with a bow to the eye, and saves Jesse. Jesse then realizes that the symbol on The Admin’s head was the same symbol shown on the back of the Prismarine Golems at the ocean temple, and Jesse realizes that destroying the symbol is the only way of destroying the Admin. Jesse takes Lukas’ horse, climbs up the Admin, and kills it, dropping a giant clock, which Jesse uses to make the sun come up.
In the aftermath, Jesse and others are doing all they can to rebuild Beacontown, Jesse can give either Lukas or Radar the title of “Clockmaster”, which basically involves watching a giant clock all day. Jesse then meets up with Jack and Vos, who unintentionally spill that they are about to go on a new adventure with Nurm and Petra. Suddenly, Jesse and Petra see snowflakes falling in Beacontown, and one of them ends up melting inside the gauntlet, revealing the Admin to be a snowman. The snowman then gives Jesse a challenge: Beacontown will remain dark and surrounded by hostile mobs until Jesse reclaims the giant clock, which the snowman says is “at the tippy top of my awesome, fantastic, super-deadly icy palace of despair”. Jesse and the others fight off numerous monsters and zombies, and the group (consisting of Jesse, Petra, Lukas, Radar, Jack, and Vos) head toward the ice palace. On the way to the ice palace, the group encounter Lluna and Stella, once again talking about their “rivalry”. The group ignore her, and she eventually tags along with them in order to “keep an eye on them”.
At the ice palace, the snowman drops the group into the pit, and Jesse can choose whether to go with Lukas or Petra in order to find the clock. The group eventually end up in a roller-coaster-like maze, and meet the snowman once more, giving the group several challenges, such as a shooting gallery, puzzle, and a fight with a giant snow golem. Nonetheless, the Admin insists that only one person is supposed to win, and throws Radar/Jack into another challenge, with Vos randomly disappearing. The group then mine their way out with a diamond pickaxe and face numerous Snow Endercreepers. Jesse can then choose whether Petra or Jack should get the clock, and whether Stella should come along or leave her be. Petra/Jack makes it up to the clock and destroys it, turning the world back to normal time. Jack insists on finding Vos, and the group help Jack find him. Suddenly, it is revealed that Vos was actually the Admin the entire time as the real Vos died years ago, and he is convinced on partnering up by Stella. The Admin then transports the gauntlet to whoever destroyed the clock & proceeds to teleport Jesse to a jailhouse
Jailhouse Block (Episode 3)
Jesse arrives at the “Sunshine Institute”, an underground prison where the Admin likes to keep people that he detests & their loved ones as prisoners, as well as people meant to act as guards. Jesse immediately tries to escape with help from Jack/Petra (who was not chosen as a champion) where they discover that the prison is in the middle of a labyrinth filled with dangerous monsters. They are immediately apprehended and sent back to the prison. Jesse meets the Warden, a former “Guest” (prisoner) that was promoted, who proceeds to torture Radar in order to coerce Jesse into becoming an “Associate” (Guard), which Jesse can either accept this new role or refuse it. If he accepts the role he will be an Associate, but if not the Warden will break Radar’s glasses and give him a black-eye. They also discover that Stella is also an Associate of the deeper floor. After hearing of an attempted escape from Prisoner X, they discover that they need her help in order for them to get out of there.
As an Associate/Guest, Jesse will find another Guest’s secret stash, a Mooshroom. Once the Warden finds out, he will ask Jesse to shear the mushrooms from the Mooshroom to change it back to a regular cow promising a promotion to the lower depths if he obeys. If he shears the cow, Jesse will be promoted to an associate in the lower depths (Jack/Petra, Nurm & Radar will cause trouble to be demoted to follow you), but upon refusal, Jesse and his friends will be demoted to the lower depths as guests. Once in the lower levels, Jesse asks assistance from Stella to make a lever to open Prisoner X’s cell. You can either promise to help her escape as well or not. After successfully opening the gate to Prisoner X’s cell, the Admin shows up, fires the Warden, and forces Jesse a Jack/Petra (whoever became the champion in the previous episode) to fight to the death, but they instead cooperate to try and attack the Admin. Annoyed by this he abandons the Sunshine Institute. Before leaving, however, the Admin comes up with a new plan to impersonate Jesse and take over his perfect life in Beacontown and proceeds to take Stella with him.
They proceed to Prisoner X’s isolated cell, which is rigged to explode if no one is standing on at least one stone pressure plate, which means that either Nurm or Lluna (Stella’s llama) need to be left behind so that they can escape. After their escape they learn that Prisoner X, whose real name is Xara, is a former Admin. They were told that Xara and another Admin named Fred fought Romeo (the Admin’s real name) for control of the world, but Fred was killed and Xara’s powers were taken away.
After fighting through the monster-filled labyrinth, Jesse can either choose to help Xara when she ditches him, or to leave her to fend for herself. Whatever the player choose they will meet up with her at the base of a Diamond Tower. Xara explains that there is a passageway beneath the tower and they need to dig into the bedrock to escape, she also explains that the secret to rid Romeo of his abilities also lies there as well. They enter the passageway, but the audience sees that there is a giant Enderman in the passageway. Romeo, in Jesse’s form, proceeds to give the Order of the Stone’s Amulet to an armored assailant to try and hunt down Jesse and his friends.
Below the Bedrock (Episode 4)
Jesse and company reach the “Underneath” the first world created by Romeo, Fred and Xara. Xara explains that this place was sealed by Romeo a long time ago after killing Fred and imprisoning Xara. After arriving at Xara’s ruined city “The Oasis”, Xara points them to a destroyed portal that could bring them to the surface. Jesse asks Xara to rebuild the portal while Xara tells them that they need an object from Romeo or the Surface to help power the portal. She tells them to head to “Fred’s Keep” to find the weapon that can stop Romeo, and to look out for anything that can be used to power the portal.
While travelling via minecart to Fred’s Keep, the group are assaulted by the Giant Enderman, which leaves Jesse and Jack precariously on the edge of a giant cliff. They are met by scavengers who demand their weapons for safe passage. If Jesse refuses, Jack will seemingly fall to his death.
Jesse and company find themselves in Fred’s Keep where they discover a group of people who venerate Fred as their former protector and the creator of their safe village. Jesse asks to enter his house to look for the weapon, but only the winner of the annual Fred Trivia Contest may enter. After winning the trivia contest or sneaking inside, they discover that the weapon is found in the original house, a cabin, Fred, Xara and Romeo used to live in. The leader of Fred’s Keep, Binta, gives them a device to point them in the right direction in exchange of helping the villagers get out of the Underneath. If Jack and Nurm are still in the party, they will stay behind to convince more people to join; if not, Nurm will stay to wait for Jack.
While travelling to the Admins’ First Home, they are assaulted by an Armored Assailant, or ninja, who is revealed to be Ivor. Ivor informs the group of the admin’s misdeeds and proceeds to fake a report to buy them time to look for the weapon. Before Ivor leaves, Jesse asks for the Amulet of the Order of the Stone to use as a part of the portal.
The trio discover that the Admins’ First Home is in Romeoburg and they needed to complete his challenges to proceed. Inside the cabin they find Fred’s Journal, containing a keyword (#potato451) and a set of instructions on how to defeat the Admin. Realizing how similar their and the Admins’ former friendship were, Petra becomes emotional and worries that their own friendship would end just like the Admins’. She also confesses to Jesse that her place is not in Beacontown, but she wouldn’t leave if it means she would lose Jesse. Jesse could either promise Petra to leave with her or wait for her as long as it takes.
Upon returning to Oasis, Jesse and company activates the firework to signal Fred’s people that they are ready to leave. He also gives Xara the diary, and she swears vengeance on Romeo. The fireworks attract the Giant Enderman as well as several mobs of monsters. Depending on previous actions Xara either stays to help fight off the mob or abandons the group. The people of Fred’s Keep will arrive to help; Jack will also reemerge here if he fell down in the first act. Radar discovers that the Giant Enderman is angry at him after he attacked it earlier and asks Jesse if he can use himself as bait to save Fred’s people. Jesse is then given the choice to either leave Radar behind or to abandon Fred’s people.
Upon entering the portal they find themselves on the outskirts of the Temple of the Order of the Stone, and are horrified of the new Beacontown.
After the credits we see Lukas just getting back from the Ice Palace greeting Jesse (Romeo) asking where everyone is. The Admin’s eyes glow red as the scene cuts to black.
Above And Beyond (Episode
