Barrier Blocks is an AU involving Minecraft YouTubers created by a user named ThomasThePencil. It follows a 15-year-old boy named Frisk as he ventures through the Underground under the guise of "curiosity", although nothing is quite as it seems in this new, yet familiar world...

Areas

NOTE: More will be revealed as the reboot of the AU begins and progresses.

The Ruins

With a few now-defunct puzzles and not much lighting, the Ruins are the first area Frisk encounters on his new journey. Heat lamps (with Jason controlling the fire that lights them) dot the caverns, as do several hints of the past. Jason's home lies at the end of the Ruins, with the exit door just a short hallway away.

Snowfall

Not much is known about the second area Frisk takes on, but the area outside the Ruins door is a dense forest. It's also extremely cold, to the point where Frisk has to try and warm up almost immediately after stepping outside the Ruins. A town called Hailton exists at the edge near the Waterfall replacement, but nothing is known about it other than its name.

Characters

NOTE: More will be revealed as the reboot of the AU begins and progresses.

Frisk

BBFriskBattle REBOOT

UT Role: Frisk

This kid shares an outfit inspiration with the original protag, and that's about it. Taking the same role as his canon counterpart, Frisk is a 15-year-old boy who came to the mountain for a variety of reasons.

Information and Trivia

  • Came to the mountain supposedly out of curiosity, although it's fairly clear that's not all there is to it.
  • is slightly scared about what he might find in the Underground, but pleasantly surprised by what he does find...at first.
  • Very quick to accept any form of platonic affection, but gets extremely flustered if someone flirts with him.
  • Is very optimistic about what he can do to help the Queen of the Underground after Jason's fight, although at that point, the state of the Underground...hasn't really sunk in for him yet.
  • His favorite food is milk chocolate. He thinks white chocolate is weird.

Dongus/Ross

BBDongusBattle REBOOT

UT Role: Flowey/Asriel

A friendly squirrel with a scarf and bowtie, Dongus is the first new pal Frisk meets in the Underground, although not all is as it seems with this furry little friend...

Information and Trivia (Dongus)

  • How he came into existence at all is unknown, although some information from Cory reveals he had a past life as Ross.
  • He's implied to get a little crazy if left alone with a surface human for too long.
  • He's nowhere near as cunning --- or evil --- as the original Flowey, and really doesn't have any big plans for Frisk. Or does he?
  • He may or may not have a rivalry with a broom. Yep.

Information and Trivia (Ross)

  • Not much is known about Ross other than that his death led to the birth of Dongus somehow. How he died and why has yet to be revealed.
  • Has a cat named K.P. that Tim takes care of in place of Ross.
  • May or may not have had a plush squirrel toy. A big one. Make of that what you will.

Shelby

BBShelbyBattle REBOOT

UT Role: Papyrus

Bouncy and bubbly, and tons of fun! Shelby's the commandress of the Snowfall Guard, and she's more than willing to help Frisk along throughout his journey.

Information and Trivia

  • She doesn't see eye-to-eye with some of the guard on the human policy, and believes all fallen humans should be subject to the same deal the rest of them are. If they're good, they can stay. Of course...not everyone agrees with this, and so the Captain is much more popular among the guard itself. She's got the attention of a lot of the residents of Hailton, though, even if not all of them favor her stance.
  • She's deathly scared of killing. Very few of the Underground's residents actually know why.
  • There's an odd blotch on the back of her hair that's different from the rest of her hair.
  • She hasn't had white chocolate in years.

Jess

BBJessBattle REBOOT

UT Role: Asgore

As the Queen of the Underground, Jess is hardly in the best position. With several kills and a bloodthirsty kingdom, and the final SOUL now within reach, she has to decide: it's either her subjects or her ideals and morals.

Information and Trivia

  • She has the highest LV out of everyone that resides in the Underground. Her LV is 5.
  • Her husband, Jason, is believed to be dead after heading for the Ruins. She refuses to believe it, though, and wants to believe he's still there somewhere, waiting for the moment when he can come back.
  • She's actually not exactly able to fully utilize her magic --- as such, she wields a staff as a way to channel her raw magic into powerful attacks.
  • While she doesn't want to kill Frisk, she also needs to take into account the hopes and dreams of the entire Underground, and given the fact that a lot of the Underground is out for blood as a result of the past...
  • in canon, she wrote the teen romance novel series "Midnight."

Gameplay Changes

  • The battle UI has been revamped to account for the new size ratio and style of the battle sprites.
  • To replace the fallen humans' items, as all of the fallen humans and their belongings are in Jess' castle, a system of item crafting allows for a choice in your weapon and armor progression. You can even craft consumable items. The materials can be gained by sparing enemies. Some armor and weapons can also (or only) be bought in shops.

The Story

[TO BE REVEALED --- HAS BEEN CHANGED SIGNIFICANTLY FOR REBOOT.]

Official Soundtrack

Due to the creator of the AU being a musician, there's a lot of music available for the AU. Unless otherwise stated in a specific song, all motifs are original. Here's a link to the full soundtrack.

Some additional notes about the OST:

  • Extra songs (marked with an EX before the number) are either unheard in canon gameplay or very difficult to find.
  • For the song "Hotel", the full title is "Do You Seriously Call This A Hotel, I Didn't Even Get A Coloring Book or Some Crumpets"
  • "Storyteller Shelby" and "Feeling Hopeless" are mutually exclusive. You will never hear both on the same route.
  • The two songs at the end of the current playlist are incredibly spoiler-heavy, but have been uploaded because their context and purpose is important.

Sprite Gallery [REBOOT ONLY]

Trivia

  • The AU was just titled "Undercraft" at first conception. The name was changed fairly early into production and became what is now known as "Barrier Blocks."
  • At one point, Jess and Jason's roles were going to be swapped.
  • While it currently only has a sprite comic, the AU is largely built around being a game and will be getting a game sometime in the future, although it will not be created for a while due to the sheer scale of the AU.
  • Roleplay series like Minecraft Diaries still exist in-universe, and Jess actually managed to finish up the series' third season in this universe (an unmodified copy of Minecraft made its way into the Underground beforehand and quickly became mass-produced) and released the whole series on DVD for all to watch. The same is true of several other series she's in charge of.

Reboot

Pacifist

No parts of the reboot are released yet, as the story is being picked up from where preboot left off, and as such, many new assets must be made before the parts can be made and released. Please be patient as work continues on the AU.
