What a way to start a game of Minecraft, eh? With the Bukkit plugin StoryTime you can do just that. StoryTime tells the story of your game from start to finish in an epic manner, dynamically adding more as you go and ultimately saving the entire story to a text file on the server side, which the server can access and display to players who wish to read it before it gets deleted. Server owners can do with these files as they please. Perhaps upload them to their website for players to download, should they wish to keep the story for all of time.
Every turn, every message, every step of the journey is logged and added to the story. Whenever an action is performed, or no action is performed for a long time. Whenever players interact with eachother or other elements. Whenever players move into new areas. Whenever anything, really, the AI storyteller writes more and the story advances.
