  • The civilization were probably sea faring pillagers if they raided villages and are very religious which fis in with the pillagers lapus cult

  • That was a really cool quote attributed to Anacharsis. It's like Schrödinger's cat. The sea was so terrifying, deadly and fickle back then that a person could be considered as being in a state between life and death until they reach dry land again.

  • Ok I know this sounds kinda farfetched, but what if they are a different religion then the Builders, and the god-like voices at the end of the game are two of the gods of the Builder's religion, and they have sort of Holy Wars or something, and they all "convirted" to the Builder's religion, but they still were whatever the Drowned's religion is, so they built a secrect house of worship, with the Guardians protecting them if a single or small group of Builders came, but it was only temporary, and would slowly sink to avoid a raid/war with the Builders, who would come in large, highly armed/trained armies, and over-power the Guardians. When it would start to sink, it would look abandoned, and the sponge rooms were there to sort of get the most out of one house of worship. The conduits were a sort of expirment to see if they could live there permedently. Haste and night vision were added bonuses, if somehow the Builders did attack them, they could travel quickly and could look for places to stay even in the dark.

  • I think it is SOO funny that we are making a game, that we all grew up playing, making it sooo dramatic😂😂

  • Maybe the Guardian can sence that the gold is a part of the drowned not a item in a player's inventory after all if its a machine it could be programmed to do that and the theory is that these builders also made the end portal which can not be made by a player without creative. (Not that I know much about minecraft)

  • Another theory is based on ancient Greek mythology about Atlantis. The said drowned were like you said humans and they were way forward for their time, building structures for gods and having technology way advanced than anybody else. In fact, the technology was so great that even the gods were jealous, and tasked poseidon (or neptune, whichever) to sink it. However instead of turning into atlanteans, they turned into drowned.

  • A pretty sad part of the story is that I've noticed that the shipwrecks aren't too farm from the buried treasure. Now this could be just a game mechanic so you don't have to travel very far or it could mean that they get really close to the treasure but still never made it to the heart of the sea

  • I think the drowned happened first then they killed humans and made zombies they escaped to the nether but that was a bad Idea and they tried to revive there fallen because there species was dying out so they created the wither it they tried to escape through the portal but it followed them through containing the knowledge of those who had died then they tried to find refuge from the already existing zombies skeletons and of course the wither in there strongholds but they were found and had to escape to the end where they found something much worse the enderdragen and were trapped they eventually evolved into the endermen and you free them when you defeat the enderdragon you were sent by the gods of this world to free there people and now you mission is complete thats why its called the end
