This is the NPC village I located, it's not TOO far from the spawn point. Luckily its a straight shot across plains and deserts to get there, CONVENIENTLY located with a desert temple IN the village, and another temple ON the way. I said I was looking for a seed with nice rolling plains to start with, well, its nice and rolling the whole way to the village. It just gets rocky if you set off to the side.

I guess this would have been location one, technically, as this was the first stop, the first desert temple, on the way to the NPC village. But I always set the NPC village as my first main priority (besides some basic shelter on the first day, some torches, and some basic provisions).

This is just an example of some of the amazing scenery if you step off the main path and explore. This world reminds me some of my first seed (that is no long longer compatible with 1.3.1, although the seed I want to f*ck Alyssa Milano still produces some amazing terrain as well).
X: 410 / Y: 32 / Z: 920
SPOILER ALERT! I went ahead and searched for the end portal, you'll notice, it's ALSO conveniently located not too far from the NPC village (a mere 255.5 blocks away, not taking Y coordinates into account). Not too shabby of a start for a seed, eh?
