    Gears of War, anyone? It's not 100% in correlation, but you can still make the connection.

    I see where you're going with it! I didn't mean for a connection, I didn't even really care for the games :<

    Maybe they get the powers to teleport by the exposure to the "greenish haze" found in the End. This "haze" is apparently toxic to anything made of organic matter and will turn it into some sort of black/hollow material. The Ender Pearls the Enderman drops could be once their hearts, stripped of its soul and left as an empty hollow shell.

    What haze?

    My only problem with endermen being humans is that there's not much of an explanation as to where they got the ability to teleport. Though, it would make sense that they'd take blocks and attack when looked at, resentful of pure forms they lost. And the theory could coincide with my own if you extend the theory to say endermen were once pigmen.

    Quote from A Blind Moron

    If the End is "new", why did the First Race build portals to get there? And why are Eyes of Ender the materials that power it?

    Not "new" like it just recently came to exist in minecraft history, I was just referencing that it was a part of a recent update. And I dunno why, maybe because they used ancient secrets of dimensional travel. Enderpearls are used for teleportation, and if blazes are mechanical beings, perhaps blaze powder gives some sort of sentient fuel, or at least an animating energy to things to which it is bound. Mixing the two could create a living ball that is aware that The End is its homeworld, and this animating force could provide the energy to open the portal.

    But hell if I know. I'm just making stuff up.

    I can tell you one reason why the pigmen got owned.. they use golden swords! xD
    People say this game is a sandbox and it shouldn't have a storyline but I beg to differ. I like feeling that the terrain around me has age and meaning to it and isn't just hills of blocks etc.

    I agree entirely! I am curious. That is why I speculate. Maybe the game shouldn't have a set history, but it is our place as the players to decide what happened. And this is my conclusion.

    I posted this in discussion as well, but I think it's also relevant concerning the additions in the 1.0 update.

    Alright, so I have come up with my own theory of the origins of Minecraftia as we know it based on the features present in 1.0. Basically, we start with the five structures that indicate sentient races exist/existed:

    -Dungeons
    -Strongholds
    -Villages
    -Mineshafts
    -Nether Fortresses

    Now, my theory breaks it down like this:

    The First race created Dungeons, Strongholds, and Nether Fortresses
    The Second race created Abandoned Mineshafts and Villages

    I lump dungeons, strongholds, and nether fortresses into one for a few reasons. First: each of these structures contain monster spawners. The first race was clearly highly intelligent. They possessed libraries, knowledge to bring back the dead (as evidenced by zombies and skeletons), and also were aware of and had the power to travel to other dimensions.

    Since they could travel to The End, it is presumable that they could travel to the Nether. This is also evidenced by the fact that both strongholds and fortresses utilize unique creatures as guardians. The first race constructed mechanical blazes to guard their nether buildings and bred silverfish to defend strongholds. They are both constructed of brick with vaguely Gothic influence.

    This is where my ideas come down to pure speculation. Seeings as there is no hint of the first race ever being above ground, I believe that their original home was the Nether. Nether fortresses possess farms for netherwart, which could've been a food source for the first race. It is my belief that the first race were pigmen. Zombie pigmen are a nether-exclusive mob that indicate that there used to be sentient pigmen inhabiting the nether. They were intelligent dimension-hoppers with knowledge transcending death, explaining the presence of their zombie counterparts.

    Now, one might ask, where the hell do dungeons fit into this? Well, let me get into the second race: humans. The second race came to rise while the first was still in existence. Now, I put villages and mineshafts into one for a few reasons as well. Both utilize wood as an incredibly important building material. This proves the builders of mineshafts were once above ground, and the utilization of stone and torches in villages proves they've been below ground. On top of this, the villages indicate the inhabitants were farmers, while mineshafts are full of seeds. So it is my belief that the second race was an above ground civilization that began mining their way down into the depths of Minecratia.

    So where do dungeons come in? Why are these two races extinct? Where the hell is this going?

    War!

    Sure, maybe it's the cop out answer. But this is my guess. The expanding empire of the human race threatened the subterrainian pigmen. A battle began to ensue. Since the overworld was not their natural homeworld, the pigmen were outnumbered. But they used their intellect and used their knowledge of life and death to turn their spawners into weapons. They spiked mineshafts with plagues of spiders, and even built dungeons as traps for unwary human miners. They used the dead humans against their own kind. The pigmen were still wiped out, leaving their underground ruins as evidence of existence, but the plague of human zombies and skeletons that they unleashed destroyed the second race. The humans fell as well.

    Testificates? The new third race, perhaps the descendents of a few surviving tribes of humans. I do not believe they are a brand new race, nor that they created the villages themselves: The neverending plague of zombies and skellies would make it hard for new peoples to establish themselves.

    As for endermen, I believe they are just interdimensional travellers. I don't think they were involved in the downfall of anyone. In fact, I think The End is just bizarre new dimension that has little to no impact on the Overworld. I also feel that creepers and slimes are just a natural creature of Minecraftia.

    Who knows what happened to the pigmen that remained in the nether? Perhaps they were wiped out by ghasts. Maybe they all died fighting the humans. All we know is that their presence is still marked by the lost souls roaming around the Nether.

    The FUTURE...

    ... Then Steve build a spaceship and flew to the moon, only to discover a man named Christoff was using it as a giant production studio, and that Steve was the star of a very popular television show. Steve was initially upset that the producers actually zombified his fellow humans and made him kill them, but Christoff assured him that they were all just street beggars, so they had a laugh about it and drank tea with many aphrodisiacs in it.

    you mean "do what Black Isle Studios did"

    generally it's the same, make some pills, make some needles, make some inhalers, hell started off with what looked like folded paper one guy thought was drugs, which was bone meal. guess he saw bag of coke or something. either way, you make something look like a bong they'll think it's a drug, not a penis or whatever else it might be.

    Halph Phrice, you any good with textures? I mean, if Croco's not coming back, I think we could always use someone to step up and take over.

    See zombie fodder's argument. This idea really is so bad that it feels like my skull was cut open, and someone dumped hot sauce and acid straight onto my brain, mixing it all in with a cactus, before using the resulting jelly-mix in an enema applied directly to my anus.

    I'll consider soundcloud, but i'm afraid I'm going to have to say no to the youtube channel. In due time, I'll upload them to my own.
