The boglands would be a new biome in the nether, replacing some of the lava seas with massive amounts of soul sand, new soul sand variants, new type of fluid, bog sludge, and a new mob.
The boglands would consist of 3 main types of soul sand:
1. Soul sand.
2. Soul stealer sand, which spawns in "patches" and damages the player and any non-undead mob on it. Soul stealer sand would have a single, large face pattern on it instead of three small ones, as well as being much darker in color. Death message would be, "so-and-so had their soul drained".
3. Hardened soul sand, which spawns 3-4 blocks below soul sand. The player doesn't sink into hardened soul sand or become slowed by walking on it. This would be the nether's version of sandstone, having other versions of it to match.
The bog sludge would spawn like rivers, small lakes, and even small oceans. Bog sludge will cause the player to start drowning immediately when fully submerged. Respiration will give 10/15/20 seconds of air for each level. Bog sludge would have a similar texture to lava, but would be a very dark color, almost black. Bog sludge also causes the player to swim at 1/2 the normal swim speed.
Fossils have a rare chance to spawn in bodies of bog sludge.
Bog sludge will also have a new mob that spawns in it, bog sinkers, and will attempt to drag the player under the bog water. Death message from drowning by them would be, "so-and-so was dragged into the depths".
