So I killed a pigman to see what he'd drop. The rest started to attack but I got out ok. I figured they'd simmer down after awhile so I went back later. They didn't attack me at all. I started to gather lightstone and after a few minutes, a ghast started shooting at me. Then all the pigmen became aggressive again suddenly and, me being surrounded by ten at the time, I was annihilated. I don't know what that was.
Pigmen are the second most annoying mob in Minecraft. Ghasts being number one.
I mean seriously. I could be off fighting the largest Ghast army ever, flinging arrows all over the place, and if one of the arrows so much as glances at a pigman with a funny look, all 400 within a 10-mile radius will swarm me in no time. It's absolutely ridiculous, but the challenge is rather fitting considering how as it's hell The Nether.

You just wasted -insert arbitrary number + measurement of time here- reading this.
Pigmen are a sentient race which live in villages. Their intelligence can be compared to early humans(stone tools, etc.). Perhaps, the longer a village is around, it can expand, as well as the technology(tool materials) they use gets better(stone -> diamond). They are more agile and intelligent than iguanapeople/iguanamen/lizardfolk, though weaker.
Their village architecture is medieval europe, though more 'tribal'(mainly wooden buildings, not stone).
