    For now, we really need to gather fire resistance potions (8 mins preferable)! Any donations would be awesome! Talk to me in game for info/updates!

    Small Update!

    We've made a lot of progress, but there is still a lot to go! There is now room for ghasts to spawn, so please be careful as you dig. As well, watch out for holes, as there has been some experimentation with TnT and some random rogue holes going straight down.

    A picture of said ghasts has been included!

    Hey everyone! The project is coming along! We've made a dent in the netherack, but still have a long ways to go!
    Join us in digging!
    As of today, approximately 17 people are involved in the project! Let's raise that number up!
    Here are some progress pictures + other additions

    A mass chunk missing! Below, you can see the wall has begun from the bottom as well.

    Thank you to Cakle for building the blaze spawn a super smelter! The lava buckets by major are helping to fuel this monster!
    We've made a dent, but we are not finished yet! Get involved today!

    Ghasts are not invited to hang out on the blaze spawn patio ;)

    Update here!
    The Blaze warp area has grown from a tiny corner platform into something much more impressive and ingenious. Check out the cool porch :D

    We've finished the roof! We still have a lot to go for the walls, and the lava is coming along as well
