It explains all of the races of creatures and how things have happened.
Part 1: The beginning
In the beginning, there was nothing but a big cube of cobblestone, filled with caves and holes because it was an asteroid slowly falling apart. It went past the sun, and it was so close that the cobblestone melted into smoothstone and stopped falling apart. Some of the cobble melted into ores, some into lava, and soon, a comet smashed into the cube, bringing it to a good distance from the sun and giving it an atmosphere with clouds and oxygen as well as bacterial life. This bacterial life turned into mushrooms, which turned some of the stone into dirt. This dirt grew grass, flowers, and trees, and all of the bacterial life turned into slimes. The slimes turned into water when they died, and because of how common they were, massive oceans as well as smaller bodies of water were formed. The clouds retracted this water, and so it regularly but not frequently would rain and snow in future times.
Animals started to grow from the slimes and bacteria, and gradually evolved to what they were today, but there was no sentient life born of evolution. The only living creatures on the cubeworld were spiders, sheep, cows, pigs, silverfish, chickens, and squids.
Part 2: Friendly invaders
Far away, there was a race of alien life forms known to us as creepers. They were a violent species with a massive population, and their method of attack was to enter a planet in large ships and constantly unload an unstoppable army of creepers that would blast the enemy to oblivion as well as destroy their land.
However though, when the creeper ship landed here, it was different. The slimes and peaceful MOBs were harmless, and the creepers thought that this cube world with trees and flowers was beautiful. Using their feet as hands, they mined with advanced drills, and they found many many ores but they didn't take too many. They did not overpopulate because they were a group of creepers who hated the overpopulation of their home world. They built a base out of iron blocks and lived there, doing experiments with redstone and other materials.
Part 3: Genetic engineering
Eventually, the creepers became very lonely and wanted to talk to something. The slimes and animals were too stupid, and the creepers started to feel very disappointed, because they were expecting sentient life on this world. So after many attempts with redstone, they created a machine that could spawn MOBs. Their first test was to see if they could make smarter pigs. They took a pig, and then gave it some sentience, and it became a pigman. However though, it failed. The pigmen destroyed the lab and killed the creepers, and then went off into the wilderness, breeding and multiplying. The creepers were reduced to nothing without their technology, and so they live in the dark to this day, breeding and destroying us, trying to get revenge on us for "caging" them on this planet.
The creepers do not make noises until they are about to explode, because they are soldiers trained not to alert the enemy, and they drop records because they like listening to music. Track 11 is a recording that a creeper made of a Steve. Only skeleton arrows will not destroy their records.
Part 4: Pigmen
The pigmen were extremely violent as I said before. They fought eachother frequently, even when in the same tribes, and it was not uncommon for a pig to smash in the skull of another just because he said he looks funny or smells bad. They had enough intelligence to mine, research, test, and fight though, and even though they never mastered the bow, they mastered mining, figured out how to make tools and armour, and got many ores. They had an intense fascination for gold, and made most of their tools and equipment out of it, even though it was a horrible material. Eventually the pigmen discovered the Nether, and they entered it, hoping to find more treasures and something to kill other than farm animals, slimes, and spiders.
Part 5: The Nether
When the pigmen entered the Nether, they, not having evolved to Steves yet, were infected by the toxins of the air and became zombies. Some of these zombie pigmen escaped through the same portal used to enter, and the living VS dead wars started. By the middle of the war, there was at least 50,000 zombies fighting 1000 pigmen. The only advantage that the pigmen had was that the zombies would burn to death in sunlight due to the brightness, and they wouldn't burn in the Nether because of the toxins in the air preventing that.
The Nether is a far away dimension of fire and lava where there is glowstone, formed from the gold of pigmen corpses, and ghasts roam. These ghasts cry to this day because they are the souls of the damned formulated into large vessels, and the rest of the souls are in soul sand, which slows you down because they are trying to pull at you and get help. The Blazes are the builders and keepers of the Nether, elemental creatures who use floating rods as appendages. They build nether fortresses and transport souls from the overworld into the Nether. Whenever a creature in the overworld dies, his corpse turns into coal and his soul turns into dust that teleports to the Nether, then Blazes move this dust into blocks of soul sand. However though, the soul dust they cannot catch turns into ghasts.
Part 6: Evolution and the living VS dead wars
Most of the pigmen, while fighting the living VS dead wars, evolved into 2 different races. There was the group of pigmen that were fighting but slowly starting to build, as they realized that building fortresses and castles were excellent ways to keep out the undead completely, and then there were the small groups of pigmen who broke off from the castle building groups to build small faraway villages where undead attacks were less likely. The castle builders evolved into Steves, and the village builders evolved into Testificates. (However though, there are some reports that pigmen, non zombified, have been seen, so perhaps not every pigman evolved.) We see every zombie as a Steve, because the villagers were barely ever killed by zombies, but many steves were lost in combat. All of the zombie pigmen rotted away to skeletons, which crumble to dust after being destroyed, so the Undead have 2 fighting stages: zombie and skeleton.
During the living VS dead wars, some of the skeletons learned to ride spiders, but because spiders are very hard to tame and easily destroy skeletons, this rarely occurred.
Part 7: Steves
The Steves are a people who wore simple clothing, just a cyan shirt and blue pants. They have dark skin from the rough work of building, mining, and battling the undead and the monsters, and they gradually changed from the pigmen ways of open pit mining to branch mining, because this made them find more important ores with less work. They also used diamond tools instead, and mastered the bow and arrow. They are excellent builders, excellent fighters, and excellent miners, and still exist today, but are often split apart by internal conflicts. They have done experiments with magic in the past, and eventually discovered how to enchant items.
Part 8: Testificates
The Testificates were the villager pigman's evolution who liked to wear comfortable robes. They are good at mining and fighting, though they are not quite as adept at fighting with sword and bow as the Steves, and they prefer to build small things like villages and houses. Unlike the Steves who simply regarded the existance of everything as the work of a bearded man in the sky named Notch, the Testificates are highly religious compared to them. They don't shove their religion in other people's faces, because they think its better if only they believe in their religion, but they do make churches and statues to their god Testifica, who has a large nose, bald head, and serious eyes like them. There has been no proof that Testifica exists, but they still worship him and create monuments, partially large recreations of his face and head.
The Testificates mine, lumberjack, and farm, and they do not raid others very often, but they do keep men around to fight off the monsters of the night. They never use swords, preferring to use their axes normally used for lumberjacking instead of crafting a new weapon just for fighting, and they usually use potions in combat because they are very skilled alchemists. One Steve who attacked a testificate reports that "he could not pull back an arrow or swing a blade, but he could make me become poisoned, starved, weak, slow, and easily susceptible to having my head split open by an axe or become killed by a damaging potion -- a fate I barely escaped with my life."
Part 9: The End
The End was the garbage bin of the universe. If someone died in the Nether, they would be transported to the End. These people starved and would eventually become one with the darkness, growing tall like a plant and very dark like their enviroment. The minerals they brought with them would be turned into spherical pearls, and these people known as Endermen were able to teleport. They were released into the overworld when stronghold portals were created.
Eventually when they were able to travel to the overworld, they looked for the darkest material available (obsidian) and created tall obsidian towers. They created crystals that gave them more power, and this power emanated from the endermen to other monsters, giving them more strength as well. I hear that recently they've found a dragon in the overworld and brought it through a stronghold portal into the End, and its became the guardian of this dimension...
Part 10: Strongholds, abandoned mineshafts, and dungeons
Dungeons were the pigman's way of punishing someone who had done a severe crime. They would take his items away from him and lock him in a room of cobblestone at differing ground level heights to die. The Endermen, who loved to build, decided to leave the dungeons as challenges for people to do, leaving shitty items in the chest to anger them and putting in monster spawners.
The dwarves, a race I will explain eventually, discovered the minecart and rails system, and created mineshafts where they transported goods in a faster more efficient way, because they mined alot. However though, spiders loved these areas, and they lived near and in them, gradually growing smaller but also poisonous and infesting these mineshafts. Due to the spiders, the dwarves eventually abandoned the mineshafts or were killed.
The strongholds were created by the dwarves as underground bases. They had the cave spider problem as well, but silverfish also came, liking the stone bricks for having cracks that were even and easy to enter. The silverfish have not attacked, but they have lived in the bricks for long periods of time.
Steves eventually discovered the strongholds, and built more things in them, such as libraries, and they attempted to create portals, finding the failed attempts at portals that the pigmen created.
The first End portal was created when a Steve had an accident with magic while trying to use it and ended up creating a portal to the End. He was sucked in, creating the first Enderman. These Steves were horrible magicians, but one of them managed to change the portal so that it was closed, and would only open with a random item. These items happened to be Eyes of Ender, created from the dust of a blaze rod and an ender pearl.
Part 11: Herobrine
The legend of Herobrine started out when a Steve, named Herobrine, who was perfectly normal, was experimenting with magic but started to go crazy and kill everyone. He had enchanted a diamond sword to an extremely high level, but he couldn't handle the energy from it when he held it. His eyes went fully white, he had a small amount of invincibility, and he went insane, going on a killing spree. Everyone in his castle was murdered (about 100 or so people) and in the next few days, a group of 50 Steves with enchanted armour and weapons were sent to the castle to eliminate this "Herobrine" who became the boogeyman of all Steves -- one man with no armour and just an enchanted diamond sword couldn't kill 100 Steves who were using diamond equipment and armour, that was unheard of and insane!!!
The group of 50 men almost killed Herobrine, but they were killed. They tried assaulting him with arrows, but he blocked them with his sword, and he killed almost of them. He was left with half a heart, and ate the flesh of the men to survive because he didn't know where all of the food in the castle was. The one man who survived was scarred for life from seeing Herobrine slay his friends and then eat them, and he ran back to the Steve city where he came. The day after, a group of 100 fully enchanted diamond warriors were sent to the castle to eliminate Herobrine, and they managed to finally put him to rest. They destroyed his enchanted sword by pouring lava over it, and from then on, enchantment advancements were at a standstill for a long period of time.
Part 12: The Third Evolution
Not all of the pigmen evolved into just Steves and Testificates. We know that the builders turned into Steves, the farmers turned into Testificates, and the pigmen who were still very war-like and stupid just stayed the same (though its miraculous that any of them survived.) But there was, in fact, a third evolution.
There were pigmen who spent most of their lives mining. These people were known as the Dwarves. They wore metal and horned helmets, had red hair and beards, and they were fierce warriors when challenged to a fight. They hardly used bows, though they sometimes would, and they used both axes and swords.
There have not been many dwarf sightings today; they are more common than pigmen, but just as rare to find. They are a secretive people who don't like to expose themselves to others, and not alot is known about them. There is one celebrity dwarf named Honeydew. There have been tales that whenever a Steve, Testificate, pigmen, or any creature goes to attack an underground dwarf settlement, they are never heard from again.
The testificates, steves, dwarves, and pigmen are not in a state of war against eachother, but they do fight eachother from time to time. As of today, race appears to not be a problem, though many think that testificates are ugly, but there appears to be no genodical intentions in anyone.
Also, "Steve" is just a term for human that was used by everyone else. Everyone hated the Steves for having better buildings and structures and being more intelligent, so they called them all "Steve". Steve is the name of the first human who was created, and until human's appearances became different due to evolution, all of them looked like Steve.
They can't work with their feet as hands very well, so rather than using something like a sword or a gun, they implant TNT into their bodies and explode to hurt others. The creepers multiply like cells, so their "children" have this TNT mechanism and their soldier mentality. This technique is a win-win for them, because they have a massive, massive population, so even if they can't quite make it past a line of fire from an opposing army, they will destroy their planet. This has happened before in creeper wars with other planets: many many dropships come and drop monumental amounts of creepers, and if they can't rush them, they'll drop them right on top of them. Their war strategy is to zerg rush, which is possible because of their overpopulation and explodyness.
..Creepers are aliens.
Aliens advanced enough to practice genetic engineering.
Yet they have no structures? None. They cant build houses.
Poorly thought out....
They have machines on their homeworld that create tools for them. They can use these tools, but not create them. Their tool creating machines that they brought with them here were destroyed when their cloning lab and ship was blown up, and pray to Notch that another creeper ship doesn't come to Caveworld.
Official lore? You don't seem to know what OFFICIAL is,right?
Did he hire you?
You don't seem to know what reading the thread is,right?
Good but the enderman thing makes no sense the people who die in the nether go to the end and become endermen, though the first enderman was created when a steve went to the end but people had already died in the nether and beside that this.... is.... awsome! A edited version of this is going to be my rpg religion. It will include the god sheep and the leftover pigmenminers
