The Nether is the Minecraftian equivalent of Hell. It is deep down. Sinners are sent there if deemed unworthy for The Citadel by The Lords Of Minecraftia. It is composed almost entirely of compounds of a magical, forever-incendiary stone called Netherrack. There are also glowing rocks hanging from the ceiling, lakes of magma, pillars of fire falling far, and a marshy sand that can lead to a fate worse than death. It is infested with strange, horrifying creatures: giant flying squids, zombies that are half pig, hopping cubes of solidifying lava, spinning creatures with flaming spears and smoky bodies, char-black skeletons, and a terrifying beast said to be the bane of all creatures' existence.
