From a few years back I vaguely remember finding a stronghold where I could get to most of the it, but in order to access the portal room, I had to look up its location with cheats and dig through the walls of the stronghold to reach it.
The memory faded over time, and I'm not sure it really was like that, but my brother just found another stronghold, and has scoured it for hours without finding the portal room. I've heard that strongholds don't necessarily have one, but the only sources I could find state that this does not apply to the Java edition.
So I have these questions:
- Is it possible, in Java edition specifically, to have a stronghold that doesn't have a portal room?
- Is it possible for a stronghold to have a portal room, but that can't be reached from the staircase that it's generated from?
- In the event that a portal room is inaccessible, how would one go about finding it?
