A Variation On Pigmen
- Pigmen are to be dangerous.
I would like pigmen to be set off at the slightest issue, resulting in your immediate demise. They will of course, not be cannibals, therefore they will take severe offense to holding pork in you hotbar. They will then become hostile and chop you to little pieces. They also will take offense to swinging your sword or pickax or whatever damaging tool you have at the moment near them. Not just when you hit them, the mere threat is enough to set them off. Building around the pigmen will also set them off, as they are reminded of their inabilities. But this isn't even it, the neural zombie pigmen you took care to leave alone will now come after you while you have the effect pigman stench which will be put on you for 20 minutes after being around pigmen.
- Pigmen gameplay should be fun and rewarding.
Making the pigmen like you will have to be much harder than manipulating the villagers the way you do. Pigmen will have a strict hierarchy, the Hostiles, being other pigmen tribes and zombie pigmen are at the very bottom. Next are you and the rest of the mobs populating the nether, called the Lowmen. They will not attack these unless they attack them. After that are the Populus, the inhabitans of the pigman fort. After this are the Warmen. They are the powerful protectors of the fort. Next are the Holy, the special people at the top of the village. The most powerful warriors. The Chieftain. The Shamen, etc. You are able to work up to the rank of Populous by bringing many swords of zombie pigmen to the pigs. You will now be able to fight in their army, run by the Warmen. To work up to the warmen, you bust bring them the flesh of enemy tribes. Now you will be able to control your own small group of pigmen to fight enemies, the more enemies you fight, the more you will be allowed to recruit to fight with. To make your way to the final rank of Holy, you must issue a challenge via a right click to the previous chieftain and with your small army, fight all the previous Holies.
The Pigmen will not follow you through the portal if you go home, they teleport to their fort in that case.
If you die while a certain rank you will keep the rank.
If you are chieftain, other Warmen and their armies can challenge you.
The more pigmen there are in your army, the more Zombie Pigmen will spawn.
If you have a rank, it will take multiple offences for the pigmen to take offence, kill you and demote you.
Other pigmen tribes may make raids on yours.

Thanks for reading this Novel. I appreciate the votes. Please comment on what I need to change or add. Also, I left the amounts of things needed to rank up or be demoted or amount of people to have in the army to be specifically vague, so Mojang can come up with the best amount.
Also, I was debating what to make their food source when I discounted anything growing out of the nether and the inedible things, when I thought they might have to be cannibals, eating the remains of their enemies or even friends, and giving pigs another use. I would like to know if this is a good idea.
