Said stronghold connects to an abandoned mineshaft... Which connects to a huge cave system and a ravine. Haven't found much good loot, though, but it's fun to explore. Rest of map is dotted with caves, none of which I've explored too much yet.
I can't remember the coordinates of the stronghold, but it's open to the northwestern desert in two places, and is southwest of a village near the same desert. The village has a decent number of wheat farms, but the buildings are pretty hard to get into.
If someone reading this finds the stronghold, could they post the coordinates for everyone else, please?
Have you been able to locate any diamonds on this seed yet, Burnmad?
Also, I found a nice ravine where the ocean is pouring down into it. It's about middle of the map, east side. I'll get coords later and post them. it's very nice. Big ravine in the SE too. --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tVl2FaJyTI
