A Novice Fisherman Villager in a Minecart on a rail that leads to a junction. The rail straight ahead would lead of a cliff, but the junction is currently set to connect the rail around the corner of a villager house instead. Next to the junction there is a lever with Noor standing next to it and looking at the lever. In the background across the cliff there is a river with some sugar cane and three cows on its shore.
